Hire Christchurch's Best Gardener

Do you want to find the best gardener within Christchurch or even Canterbury? The one who can transform your weedy grass patch, your overgrown section or even your barren land into an oasis of green magnificence? Then you’ve come to the right place! Finding the best gardener for your property is easy, just post your job here at Builderscrack and let them find you.

Choosing the characteristics you want in a gardener takes a little bit longer. That’s because you are going to have to be specific about what you want done and how often you want it done. Other than that, easy peasy!

Choosing The Right Tree Doctor For You

If you have tall, damaged or out of control trees, hedges or bushes, chances are you are going to need an experienced tree doctor who can prune them back to a manageable size or remove them all together. If they are tricky you might even need a tree surgeon, so check out their qualifications and level of experience before hiring them.

This is especially true if you have trees near powerlines, as only some contractors are given training by electricity companies on how to do this safely. If you have other horticultural jobs to be done, a regular gardener might just be your ticket.

If you are wanting to put your property on the market and the grounds need a spruce up to make them more appealing to buyers, it would make sense to engage the services of a gardener or company who can do a wide variety of jobs and has the equipment and manpower to get it done within a reasonable period of time.  If you need your lawns mowed on a fortnightly basis, sticking with someone who only does this is your best bet.

Why A Canterbury Gardener Is Your Best Choice

Here in Christchurch and surrounding areas we have a unique climate. It's one which can be scorching hot during the summer months and incredibly cold with snow during the winter. Just like you have adapted to life here, especially after the devastating earthquakes, a great local gardener has insider knowledge and knows which plants are suitable for our weather conditions and where to plant them for maximum growth and visual impact.

A local gardener is also a wealth of knowledge about the common weeds, pests and diseases prevalent in your area. With some gardening contractors holding certifications in Grow Safe application or Certified Approved Handlers of Agrichemicals, they will have access to organic and regular sprays which can be more effective than the ones you or other non-certified gardeners get at your local gardening centre. They are also professionally trained in how to safely store, handle and use these chemicals, preventing damage occurring at your property.

A local landscaper or horticulturalist will have insider knowledge about local soil conditions, areas which are prone to flooding or have unstable land and where to source the best plants for your garden. Because they are local, they will not have to travel so far to get to you, meaning lower travel costs on your bill! Remember to check for experience, qualifications and customer testimonials when choosing the best gardener for your Christchurch property.

Outsourcing Housework Freed Up Precious Time For This Busy Homeowner

Busy homeowner Michelle holds down parenting, full-time work and studying towards her PhD. She shares with us how she used Builderscrack to outsource her housework so she could focus on the important stuff... How It Started To say Michelle is a driven person is an understatement. Sitting across from a woman that packs so much into her days is inspiring, not only because of that drive but the clever way she has arranged her life to make it possible. She tells me "I’m doing a full-time PhD and I’m doing full-time work, so for me, I have lots to do and absolutely no time. I also have a teenager who’s almost 16, who is extremely social. Every weekend there are at least five to seven friends invited, and they are having a sleepover. I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard findi
