Tips On Hiring An Auckland Gardener

With Aucklanders having a long history of enjoying the outdoors and aiming for that good old quarter acre section, our gardens are one area of our property we love to use and enjoy. Yet with our busy lives, especially here in fast paced Auckland, gardens are sadly neglected due to a lack of time or knowledge. That’s where hiring a professional gardener who can help you care for your grounds and keep them looking smart comes in.

Professional groundskeepers are able to do a wide range of tasks in your garden with lawn mowing and edging, pruning, weeding, garden design, landscaping and planting to name a few. The outside jobs you have that need doing by a gardener will depend on the type and size of your garden and how much time or inclination you have to dig in and do it yourself. You will also need to decide on how often you would like them to visit your property; weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even just a one off job when preparing your home for new tenants or a new owner.

What To Look For In A Gardener

A great gardener may have their own business and work for themselves, be an employee in a small local business working only within specific Auckland suburbs like Glen Eden and Mt Wellington or be a part of a large nationwide company. One of the best ways to find the right fit for you is to ask around for recommendations, read reviews other customers have written or ask for testimonials on their work.

Here at Builderscrack we strongly recommend that a review is placed upon the completion of the work. This not only gives feedback to the tradie you hire, but helps build a system of trust among other users just like you.

Investigate the qualifications, training and experience a gardener or their business has. With qualifications from degrees in landscaping and design, to certificates in horticulture and specific training courses at local tertiary institutions, your local gardener will be able to tell you how their specific qualifications can help them provide a better service to you.

Some of the best gardeners do not have any formal qualifications, but have a love of gardening and plenty of years of experience under their belt instead. It makes sense that if you have a specialised project such as landscaping or pruning challenging trees that you choose an expert in that area.

Hiring a local gardener familiar with our climate here in the City of Sails makes sense. Not only will they be able to advise you on suitable plants for our variable weather, but they can also identify the type of soil which your property has and identify and control common local pests, diseases and weeds. Choosing someone within your suburb can cut down their travelling expenses which are passed onto you.

When looking for an Auckland based gardener, post here at Builderscrack first. We’ve got plenty of keen tradies just waiting for your job today
