The Benefits Of Hiring A Gardening Service
- by siteadmin
The gardening service was a not-for-profit community-based initiative for ill and frail elderly people. Participants received garden visits every 8 weeks at a subsidized cost, which could be waived for those who couldn’t afford it.
The price of a gardener depends upon various factors like the type of work, area of garden and more. Generally, a gardener charges more for hard laboring work than for simple works.
A good gardener can weed a large area in very little time, and this will keep your lawns looking neat and tidy. Having a regular gardener in place can save you the hassle of weeding yourself, as well as the expense of purchasing or renting a weed sprayer and other gardening equipment.
Professional gardeners are fully qualified and knowledgeable in all aspects of gardening, from seasonal soil ph levels to plant selection, placement and fertilization. They know how to prepare and build a veggie patch or herb garden, how to maintain the health of shrubs and trees, and which lawns work best where. They can also help you install a watering system that’s tailored to your garden and the plants within it.
The best gardeners belong to horticultural or landscaping associations and can demonstrate their qualifications. You can also ask for proof of public liability insurance, which protects you in case they damage your property or hurt themselves working on your garden. Most reputable landscapers, gardeners and turf layers will have this coverage. If you’re not sure, contact a local insurance broker to check the policy details. You should also ask for a list of references from past clients.
When a garden has been planted, it needs a regular fertilizing to keep plants healthy and productive. Some plants, such as roses, fruit trees and vegetables need extra to keep them thriving. A quality slow release lawn fertilizer will also give a huge boost to tired lawns, helping them look lush and green.
A professional gardener will know what plant type, soil condition and water requirements each part of your garden requires to thrive. They will advise on the right fertilizer for each garden area and will regularly mulch to retain moisture, suppress weeds and make gardens look neater. They will also aerate soil, fertilize and treat dry soils with wetting agents to cultivate the soil properly and ensure good moisture penetration when it rains.
They will re-pot potted plants, re-position sun loving pot plants to warm areas and prune frost sensitive plants such as ferns. They will spray for pests such as aphids and apply herbicides as needed. They will also cut back spent flowers on roses, fertilize and trim hedging.
The gardener’s hourly rate will depend on the work they need to do. Those who need help with large landscape projects will pay higher rates than those who just cut grass and pull weeds. Before you hire a gardener, decide what tasks you want them to do and how regularly you want them to come.

It is not possible or practical for many homeowners to keep their garden neat and tidy without regular maintenance. This could be something as simple as a weekly lawn cut or as complex as pruning, planting and fertilizing. Many people can’t physically do the work or simply prefer not to, so it makes sense to hire a professional gardener. This allows you to sit back and relax while your garden is professionally cared for by someone you can trust.
There are a wide range of services provided by garden services. These can include tree removals, trimming and cable bracing as well as hedge and shrub pruning. Some even offer pest and disease evaluations and treatments. In some cases, they may also decorate trees for special occasions such as Christmas.
Depending on the type of plant, it is advisable to prune at different times of the year. This helps maintain a healthy plant and prevents unwanted growth that could compete with desirable plants for nutrients. The recommended time to prune most plants is during late winter or early spring before new growth begins. This prevents the new growth from being damaged by cold weather and promotes the best overall health of the plant.
A garden services company can be hired for on-going maintenance or for one-off garden clean ups, seasonal tree and shrub pruning, mulching and fertilizing, lawn mowing and weeding. They can also help you with larger garden projects such as water-wise landscape design, installation of automatic garden irrigation systems and more. The professional gardeners that you choose will be fully qualified horticulturalists and abide by all OH&S guidelines. They will also have the experience and knowledge to understand your garden’s unique requirements.
A well-maintained lawn is an essential part of a home, but not everyone has the time or expertise to care for it properly. Hiring a gardener can make the process easier, but it’s important to know what to look for when selecting one. You’ll want to find someone who has a good reputation and the experience and skills to do the job. The best way to do this is to ask for and follow up on references. If possible, visit the gardeners’ gardens to see their work.
It’s also important to understand how much gardeners charge for their services. Many gardeners will offer a price per hour, but it’s helpful to ask about their minimum commitment and the type of gardening they do. Some may only be available for a few hours per week, while others are full-time and can help with a wider range of tasks.
Lawns need regular mowing to maintain their health and appearance. However, it’s important not to mow too often, as this can damage the turf and encourage grassy weeds. Aim to cut the grass every week or fortnight, depending on the size of your lawn and its growth rate. If you have large clumps of grass clippings left after mowing, rake them or use a mulching mower to distribute the debris more evenly throughout the lawn.
A reputable gardener will be happy to provide advice on all aspects of garden maintenance. You can ask them about seasonal soil ph testing and composting, which fertilizers are best for different plants, how to avoid damaging flowers and trees when pruning, and even which watering systems to install. They can also advise you on all aspects of garden design and landscaping, as well as weeding and lawn mowing services.
A tidy and well-kept garden is the first impression people have of your home. It is also safer as it is less likely that insects and dangerous animals will nest in overgrown bushes or grass. However, keeping your garden in tip top shape is a very time consuming and daunting task for many homeowners.
