From disposing of garden waste to planting the next summer’s seedlings, we can have an expert gardener at your property at a time and date that is suitable for you.
Many of us never seem to have enough time and energy to keep our gardens as shining as we would like them to be. But it can also be a hassle trying to find the right gardener. Home Solutions cuts out the hard work of finding a reputable and first-class gardener and gives you back the time you would spend searching. Every tradesperson we take on has had to pass our stringent, five-stage evaluation process to prove they can provide a consistent, high standard of work. We make sure they have proof of their qualifications and experience as well as going to past customers to receive reviews of their previous work. Every time you receive work from Home Solutions, you will receive a 12-month guarantee, for that extra peace of mind.
You can hire a local tradesperson through Home Solutions anywhere across Gloucester. We offer our services not just in the surrounding areas like Cheltenham, Ross-on-wye, Highnam, Shurdington, Hardwicke, Chedworth, Cirencester and Stroud but also in the heart of the city including, Docks, Wotton, Kingsholm, Hucclecote, Abbeymead, Innsworth, Brockworth, Churchdown, Elmbridge, Podsmead and Abbeydale.
Hire the right gardener
Utilising your outdoor spaces well can really bring a home together and provide the right atmosphere for any property. A professional gardener can help you realise your garden’s full potential, taking care of your green spaces with ease and expertise. It is important to remember, however, that is is often better to leave larger, outdoor features, like a fire pit or patio, to a qualified landscaper, rather than a gardener. Similarly, any work you require on your outdoor water features will require a plumber and outdoor lighting will need an electrician. But Home Solutions can provide these tradespeople too.
Every Home Solutions gardener has undertaken one of many potential routes to learn the trade. For example, many will have a BTEC First Diploma Award or an RHS General Certificate in Horticulture. Alternatively, a gardener may have obtained an NVQ or SVQ. Whenever you hire through Home Solutions, you know you will be receiving a qualified, experienced tradesperson, no matter the task.
Importantly, it is useful to notify your gardener as soon as possible if they are working with anything that would require specialist tools, equipment or training. This can include exotic plants or species currently considered threatened or endangered. This way, your gardener will be able to come, on the time and date you specified, fully prepared and appropriately trained to work both correctly and safely.
Multiple factors can influence the cost of hiring a gardener. Whilst there are national averages available, different parts of the UK can have different pricing for the same job. Furthermore, the need for additional materials, extra labour or even temporary parking fares can mean your job can differ from the prices that national averages state.
There are two payment options when you hire through Home Solutions. We offer convenient, standardised pricing for small-scale and common tasks that are based on the area of land you need our services for. The larger the garden, the larger the area to mow and the more waste to dispose of. Alternatively, you may wish to speak to your gardener directly to discuss specifics and detail of a larger or more complicated job. Remember that hiring a tradesperson to work during evenings or over weekends or holidays can mean you are charged more.
It may be required that a gardener visits your home in advance of any work to accurately measure areas and assess what is needed for the job. This can allow your gardener to give an accurate and bespoke quote for the work. In addition, any extra charges, for extra materials or labour, will be discussed in advance. This will allow you the peace of mind that everything is accounted for and there will be no unexpected additions to your final bill.
