Reading up on Gardening and Gardeners

Similar to hiring any other professional, reading up a little on gardeners and the kind of work they are set out for handling can be a good idea. You might surprise yourself at the variety of work gardeners are set out to perform. There are landscape gardeners who are known to have a good hand in landscape architecture or landscape design. Sometimes a small garden design or simple lawn edging to give your plants a crisp edge can give a whole new look to your garden! There’s no harm in giving it a try to spice up your garden time to time. Not to mention, gardens are known to be quite the therapy.  

Speaking to the Gardener

It goes without say that your gardener will most likely do a better job if there is a good mutual understanding between you two. It won’t feel like a drag every time you have to chat with your gardener over a cup of tea. You want to enjoy your garden while your gardener is on call.

A good local gardener will consider looking into working around drain fields or gutters under your garden soil. If the work includes digging deep into the soil, keep underground council lines passing through the property in mind. If you are already aware regarding any hidden features that could be in the way of gardening, it’s a good idea to inform your gardener beforehand.

If you intend to do a full garden makeover, consider entirely what types of plants your gardener recommends for planting. Local flowers are a good idea to consider depending on your local climate. If you want a low maintenance garden, it’s a good idea to inform your gardener specifics, as your plants will change according to the type of garden maintenance you are looking for.


Once you’ve finalised on your gardener, consider asking the following questions while in conversation:

  • What would happen in the event that unforeseen changes take place?
  • What if the work is not of satisfactory standard?
  • How do they expect to be paid and do they expect any form of down payment?

Once your garden has been redone and refurbished for the new season ahead, enjoy your valuable moments with your personalised share with nature.
