Taking care of your gardens can offer a number of benefits, besides helping you satisfy your green thumb. Well-kept gardens are also perfect for hobbyists who need space for exercising, growing vegetables or entertaining guests. A garden that won’t require too much maintenance or clearance work can also make a property far more appealing to potential buyers or renters, and in some cases can even boost a property’s value.

Hire the right gardener
Before hiring a gardener, it is worth keeping in mind that there are a few services which typically fall outside their area of expertise. For example, any work relating to reshaping a garden or adding features like patios, walls or sheds will usually be handled by a landscaper. Similarly, garden electrical work should be left to an electrician, while work relating to garden water features such as ponds or fountains will require a plumber.
Gardeners will usually study for SVQs or NVQs to learn their trade. Other candidates may pursue a BTEC First Diploma Award or RHS General Certificate in Horticulture. Remember, not only has every Home Solutions gardener had their qualifications vetted, but they have also proven that they consistently deliver work of the best professional quality.
When you need to hire a tradesperson, it can certainly be helpful to search for ‘average costs’ to give yourself an idea of how much you can expect to pay. However, it is important to keep in mind that these figures can only tell you so much. For one, local prices in Watford can differ significantly from national figures. Gardening jobs can also occasionally come with additional costs, such as parking or having to bring in extra materials. A gardener may also charge higher rates for work that takes place during a weekend or national holiday. What really matters is ensuring that you end up with a candidate who will both offer a fair price and confirm all costs with you well in advance. This is always guaranteed when you choose Home Solutions.
Home Solutions prices gardening services according to two categories: set costs and bespoke quotes. ‘Set costs’ are given to simpler gardening jobs, which you can find listed on the John Lewis website. ‘Bespoke quotes’ are custom prices used for larger jobs, such as any which require multiple services. To get a bespoke quote, simply contact a gardener via Home Solutions and let them know what your project requires. To ensure your price is 100% accurate, your gardener may well ask to visit your home in advance for an inspection.
