Hiring a tradesman for lawn mowing or grass trimming
A well maintained lawn is a point of pride for a property owner; ensuring this can really increase your property’s value, which is why finding a professional to do the job to a high standard is a wise move. The Plentific website can take a lot of time and stress out of your search for a tradesmen with a service that creates bespoke contact lists based on a user’s location and the requirements of their job. You will also be given easy access to reviews and ratings for each of your options to help you compare them and make your final hire confidently.
What do you need to know about lawn mowing or grass trimming?
The cost of mowing or trimming a lawn will vary considerably depending on different factors, most importantly the size of the lawn itself. Depending on the state of the grass certain equipment or prep work may be necessary, which can add to your bill. Different types of grass may also require different levels of care; a tradesman with qualifications should be able to advise you on this. You should also be aware that most tradesmen will have a minimum charge of around £25 for this kind of work. Be aware that larger companies will have higher overheads and will thus charge more, so for smaller jobs it is wise to look for smaller companies or handymen. However, for larger jobs it is important to make sure your hire has the best equipment, such as petrol powered mowers, and you may find that only companies of a certain size can provide this. In this case access is also important; if your tradesman cannot get the best equipment to your lawn then the job will likely take much longer.
With jobs like this it is important to check for ratings and reviews from the previous jobs undertaken by each of your choices. They will not need qualifications, though an experienced gardener will be able to give you advice on lawn care. Consider whether you will want your lawn mowed on a regular basis; if so, you may want to discuss whether or not you can get a discount for providing regular work.
