When you are lucky enough to live in a property with a garden, it is important to take care of it. Not only can this beautify your property, but it could also raise its value, as well as provide you with space to enjoy all year round.
Of course, not everyone has time for garden maintenance work, but a green-thumbed gardener can take of things in no time at all. Our gardeners can take care of lawn mowing, plant care, garden clearance and more. They can also provide all the necessary equipment to take care of your job quickly and efficiently.
When you book a gardener with Home Solutions, you will only ever be working with the best. Each of our gardeners has passed a five-stage vetting process to prove that they meet our standards. We check their qualifications, experience, past work and even what their customers have to say about them.

Hire the right gardener
There are a number of advantages to taking care of your garden. A well-maintained lawn can be perfect for families who need space to play, relax or entertain guests. Others use their gardens for growing vegetables, or simply to keep their homes looking beautiful all year round. Whether for a single job or regular care, hiring a professional gardener will be your best guarantee of keeping your garden looking lovely.
That being said, there are a few outdoor tasks which fall outside of a gardener’s standard skill set. Redesigning and reshaping outdoor spaces will usually be best left to a landscaper. Similarly, any work on outdoor electrical fittings such as garden lighting should be left to an electrician, while installing or repairing fountains and other water features should be handled by a plumber.
To learn their trade, gardeners will usually earn a qualification such as a BTEC First Diploma Award or an RHS General Certificate in Horticulture. Others will study for NVQs or SVQs, depending on where they live. Remember, every Home Solutions gardener is both fully qualified and highly experienced. We will make sure your service is handled by one of the best gardeners in your local area, so there is no need to worry.
The exact cost of a gardening service will usually depend on the little details of the job. Your gardener will want to know the size of the area they will be working in, as well as what kind of plants and other materials you have in mind for the service. If you need a gardener to help care for exotic or specialist plants, be sure to make this clear far in advance, just in case your candidate needs to bring in anything specific for the job.
An important thing to keep in mind is that gardening jobs can occasionally come with additional costs. You may be charged for parking, or for hiring skips or professional equipment, as necessary. Your gardener may also charge more to work during an evening, weekend or national holiday. Your Home Solutions gardener will let you know about your costs well in advance, so you will not have to worry about any unexpected surprises on your bill.
When you hire a gardener with Home Solutions, you will have two payment options. The first will be to choose a service with a set price. The second will be to contact a gardener through Home Solutions to discuss the details of your job. Once they have the information they need, they will then be able to provide you with a bespoke quote. Keep in mind, your gardener may want to visit your property in advance in order to examine the area they will be working on.
