Taking care of your lawn and gardens requires more than just getting the kid down the street to mow  and weed every other week.

But having a yard that’s the envy of the neighborhood doesn’t have to mean giving up every weekend to roll in the dirt.

Hiring garden maintenance services can make all the difference in taming and maintaining your lawn — even if you do have a green thumb.

Why use a professional gardener?

Tending to your garden is more than watering your plants and mowing your grass, you need someone looking after your garden who is knowledgeable and experienced enough to be able to prevent problems before they even occur.

Having proper and regular maintenance keeps your garden from ever getting out of control or unhealthy, because you are giving it what it needs, when it needs it.

Trained gardeners are armed with a wealth of knowledge about what makes your garden tick, including:

  • Horticulture
  • Pesticides
  • Weed control
  • Aeration
  • Fertilization
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Natives
  • Soil health and more…

Because they are backed with knowledge and experience, a professional gardener is less likely to make mistakes — this means fewer disasters and repairs in the end.

But that’s not to say your gardener has to be in complete control of your yard’s look and feel.

If you have a vision of what you want your garden to look like, if you only know you want a certain type of flower planted, or even if you want in on some of the gardening yourself, having open communication with your gardener will be a huge benefit to both you and your outdoors.

By making suggestions and working with your gardener, he or she will know what you have in mind and make the right improvements based on their knowledge and experience.

Garden Maintenance = They Work, You Enjoy!

If you want an organic garden without the use of pesticides, you don’t have to spend your weekend in the dirt to get it.

Instead of doing the work, relax and take the time to really enjoy your time spent at home.

Even a small garden can be a lot of work, and end up taking a lot of your free time trying to get your garden to where you are picturing it in your head.

But when you hire a gardener, you can use your free time to plan your next barbecue and spend quality time with your family.

A good regular garden maintenance package should include everything your garden needs to stay at it’s best, from mulching and fertilising, to irrigation checks, and lawn care. The gardeners should also figure out the best times for all these services through-out the year,  then use them seasonally as needed.

Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still enjoy a blooming garden by putting it into the hands of a gardener.

Enhance Your Kerb Appeal

When your lawn looks good, so does your house.

Garden maintenance services give the added benefit of making improvements to your landscape.

Some of these options include:

  • Trimmed trees
  • Pruned bushes
  • Freshly mowed grass
  • Flowers in bloom
  • Right landscaping choices

By having a gardener while you own your home, it will be that much easier when it comes time to sell.

Master of Seasons

Many people see gardening as a spring activity.

And you can still keep your hobby while garden maintenance services take care of your yard year-round.

By picking up leaves in the fall, tending to your plants in the winter and preparing for the spring and summer months, your lawn service will make sure your lawn is suited for any season.
