A local gardener in London can follow leads in and around Barking and Dagenham, Barnet, Bexley, Bromley, Camden, Croydon, Ealing, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Southwark, Sutton, Wandsworth and Westminster.
To find your ideal London gardener, there are two rules to remember. The first is that you should not expect to pay prices based on a national average. Gardeners across the UK charge different rates, and London is one of the most expensive areas there is. To get a good idea of the average cost to hire a gardener in London, you will need to collect quotes from at least three potential candidates. This will also help you to spot unfair prices and ensure that you get a competitive quote.
Secondly, you will need to realise that London is a big place! Most tradesmen will not want to travel too far from their local area, or they may charge extra travel expenses for jobs that are far from home. For example, a gardener based in Greenwich might not be willing to take a job in Ealing. Start your search for a Pro by focusing on options in your local area, and always check your quotes to see if you are being charged for travel expenses.
You will want to be sure that you are leaving your garden in good hands, and so it is important that you screen your candidate instead of hiring based on price alone. Being a gardener is not technically a qualified profession, and so a ‘gardener’ does not qualifications to do their job. However, your candidate should, at the very least, have several years of experience. They may also have completed an apprenticeship, company training scheme or a similar industry course.
Another thing to do before making your final hire is to look over a candidate’s customer reviews. If they have a good track record then they should have no shortage of positive reviews from happy customers. Reading reviews is also a good way to learn about how your candidate behaves on the job: are they professional? Are they happy to answer questions?
Before hiring your Pro, make sure they they have active public liability insurance, as well as a warranty for their work.
