Gardening Support Braintree

Gardening Support in Braintree: If you cannot spare the time to tackle your tired and dreary garden, you should not be reluctant to bring in some outside help to knock it back into shape. Now, some Braintree people choose to fetch in a professional gardener while others plump for the "fellow down the street" who tinkers around with gardens. Although there is no guarantee that a professional gardener will have any recognised horticultural qualifications, he/she will almost certainly have a great deal more gardening knowledge than that "fellow down the road" is going to have.

Even if you've got a small garden, there will be various tasks that require attention in a routine manner. The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Braintree gardens are grass cutting, weeding, general tidying and hedge pruning. Tasks such as waste clearance, driveway cleaning, repairing fences and patio installation are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. 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. Certain Braintree gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. Getting to and from your house, unloading and re-loading tools and equipment, and transporting your garden waste to the local tip are all factors that they have to consider before taking on a gardening job.

Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. More involved tasks like decking installation can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Giving a clear understanding of just what needs doing before work begins, will better help your gardener meet your expectations. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. Grass cuttings and hedge clippings can be a pain to get rid of, so make certain that your gardener includes the disposal of these as part of the service.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. But don't hold them up with incessant chatter, this will only hinder them and may result in inferior or incomplete work.

Braintree Garden Design: When it comes to the re-designing of gardens it can pay to find a person who specialises in this area of horticulture. These days computer programs are available to help with garden design, not all gardeners will have access to this. Have a chat with your gardener and see if they are happy to take this on. If not you will just have to find yourself an expert.

Certain Braintree gardeners will also assist you with garden management, raised beds, snow clearance, winter maintenance, artificial turf, plant sourcing, disease identification, tree planting, ponds, strimming, tree surgery, greenhouse maintenance, hedge planting, shed removal, soil health checks, garden electrics, garden composting, garden watering, potting out, shrub planting, nature gardens, bedding plants, plant selection, soft landscaping, pest control, leaf clearance and other gardening tasks in Braintree, Essex.
