Gardeners Thame

Gardeners in Thame: 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. It is generally advisable to opt for a professional Thame gardener, as opposed to the "guy down the road" who does a bit of gardening. Whilst formal qualifications are not a requirement for gardeners, a professional is likely to have a wider range of knowledge than that "fella down the street" and will have a reputation to uphold.

Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. Spring is the busiest time with jobs needing to be done more frequently than during the rest of the year. Most people in Thame who have gardens will typically need tasks done like grass cutting, weeding, hedge trimming and general tidying. There are plenty more jobs that might need doing for example driveway cleaning, garden fencing, waste clearance and laying patios, most Thame gardeners will also be willing to tackle these.

How much you pay depends on who you hire, the hourly rate for a professional gardener will be at least £20, while you might get away with £10 - £15 if you take a chance on that "fellow down the street". Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. To make it worthwhile and to make an impression, gardeners normally like to put in two to three hours at a time. Don't forget, they have to get to and from your location, they have to unload and load their van and they may have to dispose of your waste which could mean a trip to the local tip.

Don't pay any Thame gardener in advance of the job being done, this is not the norm and they may disappear with your money. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Whether you pay by cash, plastic or cheque, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.

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. If there is going to be a lot of waste produced by your gardener, double check they he/she will take it away afterwards. Unless you want to keep it for your compost heap.

It is polite to offer your gardener a drink or two throughout the day, they can build up quite a thirst with all that hard graft. This sort of kindness is always very much appreciated. Having a friendly rapport with your gardener is also important, so chat with them on a regular basis, discuss plans and bounce ideas off each other. However, avoid incessant prattling which will only annoy the gardener and impede his/her progress.
