Are you looking for a good quality gardener in Bristol? Finding a candidate that suits your job isn’t always easy, and you might even be tempted to hire someone based on price alone, which is never a safe idea. Luckily, there is an easier way: finding a top notch Bristol gardener is quick and easy when you use Plentific. After you post a job on Plentific, some of the best candidates in your local area will get in touch to offer customised quotes. Each of your candidates will also have a a Plentific profile where you can view their qualifications and customer reviews. By hiring a ‘Verified’ Pro, you can also qualify for the Plentific Guarantee, which can cover your entire project from start to finish.
A local gardener in Bristol is likely to do jobs in and around Clifton, Arnos Vale, Ashley Down, Ashton Vale, Avonmouth, Aztec West, Henbury, Hengrove, Henleaze, Hillfields and Horfield. It's likely they cover South Gloucestershire and North Somerset which could include Swindon and Bath.
To make your search easier, here are two important rules: first of all, you should never estimate the costs of your project based on a national average. Gardeners will charge different rates depending on their region of the UK, so what you might be charged in Bristol is likely to be different from what you would expect to pay elsewhere. To get a good idea of the average cost to hire a gardener in Bristol, collect quotes from at least three local candidates. The more quotes you select, the better an idea you will have of what is a fair local price.
The second rule is that a ‘Bristol gardener’ may not service the entire city, so be sure to focus your search locally. Tradesmen will usually only take on jobs that are within a certain distance of where they are based, and so a gardener based around Whitchurch Park might not take a job closer to Avonmouth, and so on. Start your search in your local area, and do not be afraid of asking friends and neighbours for a recommendation.
To make sure that your Bristol gardener is right for you, be sure to ask to see reviews from their previous customers. This is a great way to find out about how your Pro behaves on the job: are they polite? Do they show up and get their work finished on time? Are they happy to answer questions? Any Pro that leaves their customers unhappy will not stay in business for long, but a top notch candidate will have scores of happy customers that they can point out for you.
To protect yourself and your property, you should always make sure that a gardener is properly covered before hiring them. As well as being able to provide a warranty for their work, they will also need to have active public liability insurance in case of any accidents or workplace injuries.
