You may love the beauty of a garden in full bloom but lack the green thumb to do it yourself, or you just don’t have the time needed to tend to it.  You can hire a gardener to take care of all that work for you.  Working with a professional gardening service has its perks, they have the expertise to make sure your garden looks beautiful, but first you need to find the right gardener and we can help you do just that.

What Do Need?

The first step to finding a gardener that can help you is to figure out exactly what you want.  Do you need a little bit of weeding and mowing or do you need full blown landscape design?  What are the tasks that you expect the gardener to perform?  Gardeners can do everything from the initial design, lawn care, maintenance, pruning, planting and weeding.  Are there any tasks that you want to take on yourself or do you want the gardening service to take care of everything for you?  Once you have all of that figure out it is time to search for a gardener.  You can check Google, Angie’s List or Home Advisor to find one.

Check Their Credentials

To have someone come in once a week to mow your lawn is something that almost anyone can do, but if you want something more complicated then you want someone that has some credentials. You want someone with experience in landscape design.  Many reputable landscapers studied botany or another related field before opening their business.

Get Some References

If you found a gardener online then whatever site that you found them on will have reviews.  You can find out what previous customers have had to say and whether they were happy with the job.  You can also ask the company directly for references.

Compare Prices

The prices that gardeners charge can vary drastically so it is in your best interest to get at least three quotes from different companies to compare them.  Most will come to you to have a look at your property and see the work involved.  Pay close attention to the details of the quote, you want to make sure that you are comparing apples to apples.  The lowest price isn’t always best and the highest price doesn’t mean they will give you the best results.

There you have it now you have a gardener that can make your property look spectacular.
