Garden Help Braintree

Garden Help in Braintree: If your Braintree garden is in need of some attention and nobody in your household is willing to tackle it, don't be afraid to ask for a little help and assistance. It is tempting to call on the "fella down the road" who helps out your neighbour, or you could actually bring in a proper Braintree gardener. The chances are that "chap down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications. Picking who is best for your garden is important.

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Braintree require are hedge pruning, lawn mowing, weeding and general cleaning. Other jobs like fence repairs, waste clearance, cleaning driveways and patio installation are also within most gardeners remit.

Don't expect to get a decent gardener for peanuts, while that "fellow down the street" might only ask for £10 to £12 per hour, you're unlikely to get a professional for much less than £20 an hour. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. Sessions of 2 or 3 hours are standard for many gardeners in Braintree. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by cheque, card or cash.

Make certain the gardener knows what your expectations are for your garden, job lists can help make everything clearer. Any self-respecting gardener will be more than happy to help you get your garden in order, use this help and guidance wisely. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this.

Gardeners are used to providing their own refreshments, but this shouldn't stop you from offering them a cup of tea or even a cold drink on a hot summer's day. These acts of kindness can go a long way and may even result in a better quality of job. Go out and talk to your gardener now and again to keep a friendly rapport going and also to pick their brains. However, avoid incessant prattling which will only annoy the gardener and impede his/her progress.

Otherwise you will need to find an expert in this field.
