What to look for in a gardener

When it comes to gardens, there’s a lot to think about in terms of upkeep. It’s no wonder that gardeners are so in demand, as attending to all your gardening needs can be difficult. If you need assistance keeping your garden dazzling, you can hire a regular gardening service.

Stay on top of the weeding and lawn mowing. Keep those hedges in line. Ensure your flowers receive regular deadheading and watering. Make sure the edges on your lawn are sharp. There are also specialists who can provide more intricate garden maintenance, such as pond upkeep and tree surgery.

Make your garden irresistible

Why should you have to sacrifice your precious weekends to break your back pulling up pesky weeds or repotting plants? Utilise your time by enjoying your garden and relaxing in it. Hiring a range of gardening services allows you to bask in the garden, not toil in it. Do you have an office with a communal outdoor space? Get a gardening service to maintain it for you. One less thing to worry about when deadlines loom near and it provides a wonderful space to enjoy your lunch breaks.

Gardening services can assist everyone no matter their ability. If you’ve never tried gardening before, but love flowers, there’s an expert for you. Perhaps you’ve got an allotment and need a hand setting it up for the upcoming season? A gardening expert can work with you and provide professional advice to make sure your vegetables are as fine as possible.

What can a gardener offer me?

Gardens are a sanctuary. They give respite from the rushes of life. They bring nature into your home. They can look and smell amazing. Some even provide food! But they can be a lot of work. With the long office hours and stresses of raising a family, it’s easy to let things like mowing the lawn slip from one week to another. A recurring gardening service will provide you with the peace of mind that your prized roses are pruned beautifully and that your rockery remains weed-free.

Gardeners are masters of creativity. If you’re looking to splash out on some landscaping, there will be an expert that can offer you a diverse range of designs suited for your garden. You could create your own Kew Gardens and be safe in the knowledge that professionals will be tending to the flowerbeds each week. Patios can be washed with specialist equipment to make sure they gleam for the summer. If there’s a hedge, a gardening pro will be able to carve it into art or simply keep the corners crisp. Make sure the tools in your garden shed aren’t going to waste!

What do you love most about your job?

How many other jobs allow you to work in the sunshine, expand your creative mind, and also let you physically craft something beautiful? There’s nothing greater than stepping back from a project you’ve been working on for weeks and then seeing it in its full glory. Being able to provide an environment where bees can flourish and areas for kids to be able to play is one of the best ways I could possibly spend my time. I also love having regular gardens that I see every week or so. You develop a connection with them and it’s spectacular to watch the annual cycles.

What qualifications have you achieved?

I have a postgraduate diploma in garden design and a selection of diplomas covering Forestry and Arboriculture. I am fully certified in the use of chainsaws, the ethical use of pesticides, and wood chippers. I have completed apprenticeships in forestry, nursery practice, and garden maintenance. In the past, I have worked for the council and private gardening businesses before setting up on my own.

Why should our clients choose you?

You should work with me because I am a highly trained, very experienced professional. If you are looking to simply refresh and neaten your garden for the upcoming summer, or are planning to completely redesign the land, I will provide quality results. We can discuss different plans for the garden of your dreams and work out how best to make a garden work for you. If you have a disability, we can look into the easiest way to create garden setups with wheelchair access. If you want to create a haven for wildlife, I’ll advise you on the best plants, trees and designs to encourage critters to move in.
