Barnet Gardening & Landscaping Services

Finding a Gardener in Barnet: Calling in some outside help to get your bedraggled garden back into shape, isn't something to be ashamed of if you never seem to have enough time to do it yourself. Now, some Barnet people choose to fetch in a professional gardener while others plump for the "geezer down the road" who tinkers around with gardens. Whilst even professional Barnet gardeners don't always have formal qualifications, they can usually be relied upon to have more horticultural knowledge than any "chap down the street" is apt to have.

Barnet Gardener - Find the Best

Everyone likes their garden to be looked after properly and by a gardener who knows his/her stuff. Always try to track down a gardener in the Barnet area who will do a good job and who can be trusted. With gardens containing bushes, plants and trees requiring expert attention, getting the right gardener is even more critical. Don't settle for any old gardener, get a decent one.

Gardener Barnet

The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. The commonest gardening jobs that folk in Barnet need doing are weeding, grass cutting, general tidying and hedge cutting. Other jobs that professional gardeners will usually handle include: patio installation, garden fencing, waste clearance and driveway cleaning.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "fellow down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. To make it worthwhile and to make an impression, gardeners normally like to put in two to three hours at a time. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this.

While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. Try to have a regular dialogue with your gardener, during which you can swap ideas, gain some knowledge and forge a friendly rapport at the same time. However, avoid incessant prattling which will only annoy the gardener and impede his/her progress.

Garden Design Barnet

The average gardener working in the Barnet area might not be up to the task of completely re-designing your garden. Not all gardeners who do routine maintenance will be skilled in the design area of gardening. Check with your gardener to see if they do or do not manage garden design. In many instances it becomes necessary to bring in an expert.

Garden Clearance Barnet

Garden Clearance Barnet

If you permit green waste and general junk to build up in your garden, the time will arrive when you will need a garden clearance service. Certain Barnet gardeners will be happy to do this, but unless they hold a Waste Carrier Licence, they will be limited in the quantity of waste they can dispose of. If only relatively small volumes of waste are involved it may be possible to dispose of most of it using your council green waste bin (if you've got one), otherwise you'll need additional help.

Of course, many gardens in Barnet are piled up with all manner of trash, and not simply green waste, so for this type of project you will possibly need to call a registered Barnet garden clearance expert. You might also consider renting a mini-skip if you have a good amount of junk in your garden. In conjunction with your garden waste, this will perhaps also permit you to have a proper clear out in your shed, your garage and even your loft, if they're full of clutter as well.

Essentially lawn trimmings, hedge clippings, twigs, wood chippings, shrubs, weeds, turf, pruned branches, logs and topsoil, would be regarded as "green" waste. (Tags: Garden Clearances Barnet, Rubbish Removal Barnet, Garden Clearance Barnet).
