PRICES AND WHAT TO EXPECT.
OK so you have a garden, you are very busy with work and you may also have kids, so you can’t find the time to attend to the garden and do the essential lawn cutting and weed control, and before you know it the garden looks like a jungle with weeds and long grass, by this point you will be stressing out thinking how am I going to sort this garden out?
First thing that will come to mind is a GARDEN SERVICES COMPANY.
So how to find a local gardener?
2. Local papers
3. Ask friends and family
So you are now searching for a gardener, always try to have 2-3 garden maintenance companies to come and give you a free quotation, once they arrive ask the few questions about thee company and also if they would kindly offer some recent customer references this way you can call the client and find out from them about the gardening company and how good their garden services are.
Now how to choice which gardening company to go with, maybe you could go with the cheapest? or the most well spoken? or the most well turned out?
FACT is you just have to go with your instinct, as they say you pay cheap you get cheap so find out what you will receive with the price you have been given
1. How often will they visit with the monthly price?
2. What does the price include (lawn cutting, weed removal, lawn treatment, plant treatment etc etc)?
3. Is there contract? if so can you cancel at any time?
Using these easy steps will make your decision that little bit easier.
Maybe you can also ask for 1 month trial basis were they would visit for one month and then you could decide to enter the contract, but this can be a long process, because if they don’t live up to expectations you would need to again call out 2-3 garden services providers and repeat the process, saying that this way you are more likely to find that perfect gardener in your local area.
Once you have chosen your gardener ask friends and family if they would be interested in receiving and garden maintenance service from your gardener and sometimes the gardening company will give you discount for referrals.
These are a few local based gardening companies which could maybe provide you with a guide line price and what to expect with the prices.
