Retain the services of the best you can afford and don't take chances.

Gardener Abernethy

Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. As you can imagine the need for this regular maintenance is more necessary in spring and summer. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are weeding, general tidying, hedge cutting and mowing lawns. Tasks such as patio installation, fence repairs, waste clearance and driveway cleaning are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. One hours work is not enough to make much impression on your garden, so you should reckon on them needing to spend more time than this. To make it worthwhile and to make an impression, gardeners normally like to put in two to three hours at a time. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Give short shrift to any Abernethy gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by card, cheque or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

Right from the start and before any work commences, ensure your gardener has a clear understanding of exactly what needs doing. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case. Unless you need it for your compost heap in which case you might want to keep it.

It is polite to offer your gardener a drink or two throughout the day, they can build up quite a thirst with all that hard graft. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. Wander out and have a chat with your gardener whenever the situation allows, this helps to develop a friendly connection and gives you the chance to share ideas. This does not mean you should pester them with constant wittering which will simply hinter them and slow down the work rate.

Garden Design Abernethy

Sometimes when searching for a gardener you will find people advertising as "garden designers" and for many this is a vocation in its own right. Some gardeners in Abernethy branch out into this area of gardening whilst other concentrate on the more routine jobs. Ask your gardener if he/she is comfortable with this aspect of gardening. Otherwise you'll have to search for an expert in the field of garden design.
