Its getting to that time of year again. When you look at your kitchen windows and the garden has developed into some kind no mans land undergrowth. You know something had to be done but sometimes it can be difficult to find the time to get it sorted. This is where hiring a gardener comes into play and here are some tips for getting the best in the business.
This is without doubt the best way of finding a gardener who knows his stuff. A family or friend who currently uses a gardener can tell you his rates, hours, personality and a live preview of work completed.
If you don't have friends or family with crazy, good gardeners then the next best place to look is online on credible review websites like freeindex.co.uk. These provide reliable accounts of gardeners, good and bad, and is an excellent parameter to use.
Experience is key. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that all new gardeners are totally rubbish at their jobs and that they are going to make mistake after mistake but this is a lot less likely to happen with experienced gardeners.
