Hire the right gardener
When it comes to your gardens and outdoor spaces, a professional gardener can really make your property shine. From lawn care to plant maintenance, our gardeners can take care of green spaces with ease. For outdoor feature installation work, like for a fire pit or patio, your best bet will be to hire aa qualified landscaper rather than a gardener. Likewise, work on water features should be handled by a plumber and outdoor lighting by an electrician.
Professional gardeners can take many potential routes to learn their trades. For example, many candidates will have an RHS General Certificate in Horticulture or a BTEC First Diploma Award. Alternatively, they may have NVQs or SVQs to prove they know how to keep your garden at its best.
It is good to remember that, if your garden contains exotic plants or things that would require a specialist, you should notify us as soon as possible. That way, we can make sure the tradespeople we send out to your property have the appropriate knowledge and experience to work safely and correctly, as well as bring the right equipment as necessary.
While national averages can provide some context to help you know what sort of price you might expect for gardening services, it is worth remembering that hiring costs can fluctuate based on location. Also, the specifics of the tasks involved can have a big impact on what the final bill amounts to.
With Home Solutions, many common services come with standardised prices for your convenience. However, when it comes to larger-scale and more complicated jobs, we may ask that a gardener comes to your property in advance to assess and discuss exactly what work is required. Afterwards, you will receive a bespoke price for all jobs involved, so you will know exactly what you will be paying for.
Hired gardeners will typically charge based on the area of the land they are asked to tend to. For example, a larger lawn will take longer to mow as well as produce more waste to be disposed of. Be sure to let your gardener know exactly what you need them to do, so they can give an accurate price. Additional points such as temporary parking fares, as well as extra labour or materials, can also incur further charges. Furthermore, hiring a gardener to work during evenings, weekends or national holidays may mean you are charged at a higher rate.
