Shrub Pruning Thame

Shrub Pruning 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. Before you let someone loose on your prized garden you should consider the options. Should you call on a specialist Thame gardener or the "guy down the street" who has a go at anything? The problem is that "bloke down the street" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge. This is a choice that you alone will have to make.

Thame Gardener - Find the Best

You definately need to get a gardener who knows how to treat your garden and its contents. Therefore, your goal must be to locate a gardener in Thame who does a thorough job and can be depended upon. When your garden features certain shrubs, plants and trees needing particular care, this will be even more essential. Get yourself a good gardener, don't just settle for any old one.

Shrub Pruning Thame

There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. It is essential to get these jobs done even more frequently when spring and then summer arrives. The most common jobs that people with gardens need doing in Thame are weeding, hedge trimming, general cleaning and mowing lawns. Other jobs like driveway cleaning, laying patios, waste removal and garden fencing are also within most gardeners remit.

While that "bloke 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). It is unlikely that any gardener will be able to achieve very much in just one hour. It would not be that unusual for a gardener to have a minimum visit time of 2 to 3 hours. Travel to and away from your home, bringing in and taking away mowers and tools, and the responsible disposal of your waste all have to be factored in.

Give short shrift to any Thame gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. However this could legitimately happen with bigger jobs like decking or fencing where money for materials is required. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by cheque, debit card or cash, this negates later disputes.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Establish that all of the weeds, lawn trimmings and resulting waste will be removed, they don't all offer this service. Unless you want to keep it for your compost heap.

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. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. 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. Occasionally is the key word with this approach however, don't hold them up by standing over them and nattering all day long.

Thame Garden Design: It should not be automatically assumed that a gardener who mows your lawn or trims your hedge will be good at garden design. Some gardeners have skills in this field while others prefer to get on with the routine gardening chores. Find out if this aspect of gardening is something that your gardener is comfortable with. It might just be a case of searching for somebody else who specialises in this field.

Certain Thame gardeners will also assist you with bedding plants, pond cleaning, garden trellis, holiday watering, leaf collection, snow clearance, potting out, tree surgery, artificial grass, disease identification, water features, winter maintenance, shrub planting, greenhouse maintenance, composting, bush trimming, garden planters, pest control, raised beds, irrigation, shed assembly, digging, garden tidying, garden design, hard landscaping, garden management and other kinds of gardening in Thame, Oxfordshire.
