When you live in a property with outdoor spaces, it’s important to take care of them. Not only can this help you relax, but it can also boost the value of your home. It may even be that you have a big landscaping project on the way, and need help clearing your garden of green waste before it gets started. Whatever you need, we can provide an expert to get your work done quickly, efficiently and with a level of quality that goes beyond anything offered by the competition.
Finding a qualified and experienced gardener can be a difficult task, but not with Home Solutions. Each and every one of our gardeners has passed a strict five-stage vetting process to prove that they have the experience and qualifications required to deliver the quality we expect for our customers. We even take a look at the quality of their past work, as well as what their customers have to say about them. We’re so confident in our gardeners that we’ll also provide you with a 12-month guarantee for any services you book through Home Solutions.
We can provide gardening services all over the Canterbury area. This includes outer boroughs such as Wingham, Herne Bay, Faversham, Broad Oak, Ashford, Barham and Blean, as well as central areas like Kings Mile, Hales Place, Fordwich, Thanington, Harbledown and Bekesbourne.
Hire the right gardener
A gardener is the expert to call whenever you need a hand with taking care of your outdoor spaces. Not everyone has the time to mow the lawn, care for plants or clear away garden waste. A gardener, on the other hand, will have the time, tools and expertise to get this kind of work done quickly and efficiently.
That said, it is worth keeping in mind that gardeners cannot take care of every kind of service you might require in a garden. Work with electrical lighting should be left to an electrician, while anything to do with water features will require help from a plumber. As for redesigning an outdoor space or adding features like walls or sheds, your best option will be to hire a local landscaper.
Gardeners can learn their trade a number of ways. Many choose either the BTEC First Diploma Award or the RHS General Certificate in Horticulture. NVQs and SVQs are also popular. Remember, each and every gardener working with Home Solutions has proved their qualifications and experience, so you won’t have anything to worry about.
The cost of hiring a gardener in Canterbury will depend on the specifics of the job you have in mind. Usually, gardeners base their prices on the size of the areas they work with. Getting help for larger lawns or hedges will come with a larger quote, and so on. You may also be charged more for work that requires specific materials, equipment or expertise.
When you book a gardener through Home Solutions, you will have two options for payment. The first will be to book a service with a standardised cost, and the second will be to contact a gardener to get yourself a bespoke quote. For the latter option, your gardener may well want to visit your property in advance to take a look at what they will be working with.
Before you get started, be sure to keep in mind that gardening jobs can occasionally come with additional costs. If access is poor, or if your gardener needs to pay for parking, charges may well be added to your quote. Gardeners can also charge more to work during evenings, weekends or national holidays. However, your chosen gardener should inform you about any extra costs well in advance.
