Hire the right gardener
Gardeners are green-thumbed experts who can keep your outdoor spaces looking lush and healthy. Don’t have time to mow your lawn, or water your plants? Maybe you need help taking care of your vegetables. You could even be looking for help to get rid of garden waste in time for a landscaping project (which should, of course, be handled by a local landscaper). Whatever your job might be, an experienced gardener can take care of it in no time at all.
Professional gardeners often have a range of backgrounds. The RHS General Certificate in Horticulture is a common qualification for gardeners, as is the BTEC First Diploma Award. Others may have NVQs or SVQs, which require gardeners to demonstrate just how good they are at keeping greens happy and healthy. The most important thing is that your gardener is experienced and highly rated - but, of course, that’s why you came to us.
Remember, if you have any particularly exotic or specialist plants that require care, you should let your gardener know in advance. That way, you can be sure your gardener will have the expertise to help you.
The cost of hiring a gardener in London will depend on exactly what kind of job you have in mind. Gardeners will typically either charge by the hour or offer standard prices for specific jobs.
Many Home Solutions services have set prices, but these can vary depending on the details. It will cost more to mow larger lawns, clear away more garden waste, and so on. Because of this, it will be crucial for you to let your gardener know exactly what you need doing before you receive a price.
Another option will be to book a visit from one of our London gardeners to get a bespoke quote. For these jobs, a gardener will visit your property, take a look at what you need and provide you with a customised price.
An important thing to keep in mind is that prices in London are often different than those elsewhere in the UK. Because of this, you shouldn’t rely too much on national averages. It’s also worth remembering how sparse London parking spaces can be. Any additional fees for parking, as well as extra costs for labour or materials, will be added to your quote.
