Choosing the right gardener
Be it lawn mowing, a garden clean, weeding, garden bed work, or something more substantial like landscape design and construction, landscape services, or retaining wall installations, a good gardener will be versatile, offering a range of services with a well-rounded horticultural skill set.
Not only does hiring a professional gardener save valuable time, it also ensures your garden is well looked after by somebody who is experienced and knows what they are doing.
You can spend lots of money on your own gardening tools, plants and supplies, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, things can quickly go pear-shaped. You want your garden to be healthy and looking as good as possible and a skilled gardener can ensure this is the case.
There are several things to look for when deciding on which gardener is best for you.
A gardener who is knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and reliable, consistently good, has the right equipment for the task at hand, comes highly recommended, is fully qualified, fully insured, and well-priced is ideal.
If you need a gardener to holistically look at your yard to help revive your outdoor space with new plants and landscaping, opt for someone with a horticultural and/or landscape design background.
A background in horticultural studies is indicative of extensive knowledge and a proper understanding of what works best for Canberra’s challenging climate of extreme hot and cold, and our native soils.
A gardener with expertise in landscape design will be able to work with you to create a practical and functional yard space well-tailored to your lifestyle.
They will take the stress out of the process by delivering high quality outcomes that meet your expectations and enable you to relax and enjoy your garden.
Some gardeners will work exclusively northside or southside, so when choosing a gardener in Canberra be sure to check where their geographical range extends to.
