You certainly don't want your cherished garden to be in any way mistreated by an ignorant or uninformed "gardener" who is just in it for a buck. Therefore you should be careful that you choose a gardener in Featherstone who can be relied upon. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough, when certain shrubs and trees are involved. Find yourself a decent Featherstone gardener, not just any guy who knocks on your door.

Gardener Featherstone

The jobs that need doing on a routine basis are much the same with both large and small gardens in Featherstone. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Featherstone require are hedge trimming, grass cutting, general tidying and weeding. Tasks such as garden fencing, decking installation, driveway cleaning and waste removal are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. Most gardeners will have a minimum visit time of 2 hours. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Give short shrift to any Featherstone gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. An exception can be made when a big project like landscaping is involved, and lots of materials have to be purchased. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Make sure that you get a receipt, no matter what type of payment you agree on, this will avoid arguments down the line.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. Taking away all the garden waste such as hedge clippings and lawn trimmings may not be included in the service, therefore you should establish whether your gardener will do this or not.

Working in the garden can get cold in winter and hot in summer, so spare a thought for your gardener and keep him/her supplied with a drink. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. 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. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.

If you permit "green" waste and general trash to accumulate in your garden, a time will arrive when you need to bring in a garden clearance specialist. A few Featherstone gardeners will be prepared to do this, but unless they've got a "Waste Carrier's Licence", they will be restricted on the amount of waste they can take. If only modest quantities of waste are involved it might be possible to get rid of the majority of it using your council green waste bin (if you've got one), otherwise you will need additional help.

You'll most likely have to call a registered garden clearance specialist, if like many other people in Featherstone, you have a garden which is heaped up with all manner of rubbish, and not simply "green" waste. If you have a substantial amount of junk in your garden you could think about hiring a mini-skip. Taking this approach would permit you to perhaps have a clear out in your shed, your garage and possibly even your attic, as well as your garden waste.

Generally speaking "green" garden waste would be the likes of: soil, weeds, turf, bushes, lawn trimmings, hedge clippings, wood chippings, twigs, pruned branches and logs.
