Hiring a garden maintenance service is an important step in keeping your garden in good condition and ensuring you can get the most of it all year round. There are many reasons why hiring a maintenance company is a good idea, but we have listed the main five below.
1: Expert Knowledge
Qualified gardeners and horticulturalists have a huge amount of knowledge and experience in all aspects of gardening and you will be able to make the most of that. It can be very frustrating when you feel like you’ve been caring for a plant, but it still doesn’t want to cooperate. Professional gardeners can give your stubborn plants a nudge in the right direction.
They will be able to advise you on new plants for all areas of your garden, from shady corners to creepers for trellis. They will also know how to look after these plants as the seasons change, so that you can make them last instead of buying new ones every year for spring.
Furthermore, your garden needs may change with new arrivals to the family. Having a baby or getting a dog means you are going to need to think about obvious things such as water features or pools. But you will also need to think about cordoning off certain plants that can be poisonous to dogs or adding gates to step areas to prevent your little one falling down.
2: High Quality Finish
The devil is in the detail and this is where a gardener comes in. They can ensure your garden is finished to the highest possible standard. Whether you want a modern contemporary look with palm trees, or a country garden feel with wild meadow flowers, they can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and give you pointers and tips to get the look you desire.
3: Long Term Vision
Gardens grow and mature and are constantly changing so you need to factor this into your planning. You don’t want to plant a tree too close to the house that is going to grow rapidly and disturb your foundations. Gardeners will have plenty of experience with this and will be able to envision exactly how your garden is going to look in years to come.
4: Service and Care
In order to flourish a garden needs love and care, you might not have time to give it this so hiring a garden maintenance company is the perfect alternative for people with a busy lifestyle. Even the simplest tasks such as mowing the lawn takes time, and if you want a perfectly manicured lawn with no bald patches, this is an even more challenging task. The company will easily be able to fit around your schedule to ensure they are not working during times you are trying to enjoy the peace and quiet your garden has to offer you.
5: Timesaving and Cost Effectiveness
Getting your garden to its peak is a long and laborious process, and once there it is likely to need lots of upkeep. The grass will need mown more in Autumn, certain plants will need pruned at the end of Winter, bulbs might need planted in Spring, there is a whole schedule of care to keep on top of. You may enjoy this in summer but once the weather turns you may be reluctant to be spending hours outside in cold temperatures. Fortunately, gardeners are used to being outside rain or shine. Having them tend to your plants through winter can keep them flourishing year after year, saving you money in the long run.
