Guide To Finding Local Wellington Gardeners

With a picture painting a thousand words, a beautifully cared for garden will reflect on the owner of the property to show the level of priority they place upon it.

Manicured lawns, shaped hedges, weeded garden beds and bountiful vegetable gardens are an asset to any property and not only can raise the value of it, but also provide us with an outdoor living space.

With our busy lives in the capital, regular pottering in the garden now a forgotten memory for so many, yet the plants in our garden still need our attention!

Professional gardeners in the Wellington region understand that we like to see and make the use of our outdoor space when we can, rather than spend time weeding and mowing lawns. That’s why hiring a gardener is a necessary investment for many Wellingtonians.

Reasons To Hire An Experienced Wellington Gardener

Gardens range in sizes, locations and contents, with the gardener’s geographical knowledge of the area playing a large part in the success or failure of the garden. Choosing a local gardener means that you not only get their landscaping and lawn maintenance skills, but also their understanding and experience of the local conditions such as wind and hillside gardening.

That knowledge is invaluable in choosing the right plants for your soil and drainage, picking the right spot to plant wind sensitive trees and even where to plant frost tender annuals.

Local horticulturalists may have specialised in the services they provide, such as some offering only lawn mowing and edging services, with others focusing on simply removing tricky trees.

Gardening companies may offer a wide range of general garden services.  They may work for you on a regular maintenance contract to keep your grounds looking cared for, or a one off basis when you are putting your house on the market.

Whatever reasons you have for requiring the services of a gardener, Wellington certainly has a large variety to choose from.

What To Look For In A Gardening Specialist

With the large variation of gardeners available, if the job you need doing is not highly specialised, recommendations from a friend or looking through the gardener's testimonials and reviews can help you pick just the right one for you.

Gardening qualifications can vary from a Certificate in Horticulture through to degrees in landscape design.  If you want a specific job done then choosing a specialist gardener would be the right call for you.

The level of experience which the individual or company has is also important, so feel free to inquire if they have done certain garden work before hiring them.

Some gardeners are Grow Safe application certified or Certified Approved Handlers of Agrichemicals. This allows them to target specific pests or diseases in your garden with either organic or regular sprays only available to professionals, while others only have access to the regular weed spray you can purchase at the garden centre.

With hillside slips a common occurrence on many properties around the Windy City, a professional landscaper will also be able to help you decide upon a permanent solution, be it building a retaining wall or the planting of suitable plants.

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
