Hiring a tradesman for garden maintenance

A well maintained garden is both a beautiful sight to behold and a big boon for your property: a great garden can add 5-15% to your property’s value! Still, gardening can be slow, hard and tedious. Tasks like trimming the hedges or mowing the lawn do not require a professional, but an experienced Pro will be able to work quickly, and to a better standard. If you want to ensure a beautiful, well-cared-for garden that will be sure to impress, the best thing you can do is to hire a professional.

Finding a reliable gardener can be tough, but Plentific can save you a great deal of time and stress in your search. The Plentific website can quickly generate a bespoke list of tradesmen in your local area that offer the skills you need, and each one will have a Plentific profile where you can view their qualifications, experience and customer reviews. From the Plentific Dashboard you can easily message and manage your Pros, while the Plentific Wallet allows you to make online payments with complete security. By choosing a ‘verified’ Pro, you will also gain the Plentific Guarantee, which can cover your project from start to finish. Whatever your project might be, Plentific is here to help you find your ideal hire.

What do I need to know about garden maintenance?

‘Garden maintenance’ covers a number of jobs, such as hedge trimming, lawn mowing patio cleaning or gutter un-clogging. A gardener will also be able to recommend maintenance tasks that you might not usually consider. For example, you could keep your lawn much healthier by having a gardener handle scarification, aeration, feeding, and so on. The best thing you can do is to start thinking about what specific jobs you need doing, and how often’ you may want to set up a regular programme of garden maintenance, to ensure happy and healthy greenery.

There are certain tasks which may be out of the realm of expertise of your average gardener. One of the biggest is tree surgery, which should be handled by an experienced arboriculturalist (tree surgeon). Jobs better suited for a tree surgeon include chopping down larger trees, crown thinning, tree health assessments, and so on. They may also lack the expertise to tackle certain dangerous roots. Types like Japanese Knotweed require specific expertise to permanently remove; they are resilient and will find it easy to return, even after being sprayed with weedkiller. When looking for potential hires, make sure their experience covers the jobs that you specifically need doing.

Garden maintenance does not require any qualifications, so you will need to look out for experience and customer reviews. Most established tradesmen will have customer reviews that they can show you - if they are hesitant, they are a hire to avoid. Look carefully at the reviews: they should let you know about a choice’s work ethic, expertise and reliability. The latter trait is especially important if you would like to set up a regular care plan! Gardeners may also belong to a national organisation, such as the Horticultural Trades Association. These groups have high standards for professionalism and quality, which members are constantly required to meet. Your final hire will need to have active public liability insurance, as well as a guarantee for their work.

There is no average ‘price’ for garden maintenance, because your quote will depend on exactly what jobs you want done and how often. Other influencing factors include the size of your garden, which is important when it comes to charging for jobs like lawn care. Talk to several potential hires to ensure that you get a fair quote, and ask for a price breakdown; you may find that you can save money by doing certain jobs, such as waste disposal, yourself.
