Garden Clearances Thame

Garden Clearances in Thame: If your garden is looking overgrown and untidy you should think about calling in some help if you don't have the inclination or time to tackle it on your own. Though there are a number of people in Thame offering gardening services, not all are necessarily suitable to be let loose on your prized garden. The problem is that "guy down the street" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge.

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Thame gardens are likely to be hedge trimming, grass cutting, weeding and general cleaning. Bigger tasks such as waste clearance, cleaning driveways, garden fencing and laying patios can also be handled by the majority of gardeners.

While that "fellow down the street" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). Depending on the state of your garden it is likely that your gardener will need more than just one hour to make an impression. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. They have to allow for other things such as disposing of your garden waste at the local rubbish tip, unloading tools and equipment, and actually getting to and from your home.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. More involved tasks like patio laying can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. Payment in cash is not unusual for gardeners, though this will be requested after all work is completed and approved. You don't want any arguments about payment in the future, so be sure to get a receipt.

Be clear what your requirements are before the gardener begins work, have a list of jobs that need doing. Your gardener will be there to give you advice and guidance on any aspect of your garden, so make the most of his/her knowledge. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this. This should really be part of the service.

Working outdoors can be tough and thirsty work, so make sure that there is the offer of a cold or hot drink to help the day along. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. It's important that you and your gardener have a friendly relationship with each other. Pop into the garden for regular chats to discuss gardening ideas and plans. It is not however a good idea to pester them constantly which will have the effect of annoying them and slowing the work down.

Thame Garden Design: If your plan is to not just have your garden tidied up but also to have it completely re-designed, you may need someone other than a standard gardener. Not all gardeners who do routine maintenance will be skilled in the design area of gardening. See if your gardener is happy doing this. If worse comes to worst you might have to call on an expert.
