What You Should Be Asking Your Brisbane Gardener
When hiring someone to lend you an extra hand around your home and garden, often you may be wondering whether you are getting the best quality service for your money. We all like to know that when hiring someone, that person will be the right fit and can solve all our problems for a reasonable price. Thus when hiring a gardener in Brisbane, there are a few top questions you should be asking.
What Odd Jobs Do They Offer Other Than Gardening?
Some gardeners throughout Brisbane may offer additional services such as general yard repairs such as fixing fencing around your yard, or fixing garden beds and edging that has decayed or been damaged. Some gardeners will also assist in removing unwanted debris or garden materials such as left over concrete from construction or unwanted yard junk. Looking for a Brisbane gardener that can help you out with services other than general garden maintenance is like buying an all-in-one product rather than multiple products to do different jobs. It is simply convenient and often cheaper.
Do They Offer Full Garden Makeovers & Build Entirely New Gardens?
If you are one of those people who love flicking through gardening magazines or scrolling through Pinterest in your spare time and envy the garden designs, you may be able to achieve that for your garden and not simply dream about the possibility. Ask your gardener whether they offer full garden makeover services and whether they can create a particular garden look you have been dreaming of. Some gardeners only create specific style gardens, so asking and showing them your dream designs can help you establish your gardener’s perimeters.
Can They Recommend Plants That Could Help Improve The Look Of Your Garden?
Experienced gardeners are walking books of knowledge. If you are struggling with keeping your plants alive and not sure what you are doing wrong or how you could improve your garden, or even what are the types of plants that would suit your location and soil, simply ask. Most gardeners are more than happy to help you with any questions you may have. At Graham’s Garden Care, our experienced gardeners are happy to help you out with all your garden makeover, garden improvement and garden creation questions and needs.

What Additional Maintenance Services Do They Offer?
Mowing, fertilising, weeding, pruning, hedging, strimming, … The list can go on and on. If you have a yard with a garden, shrubs, trees and grass, you may know the struggle of keeping it looking amazing all year round. If it isn’t an abundance of weeds in your garden, it could be overgrown shrubs that are just out of reach. If you find you are struggling with more than one aspect of lawn and garden care, ask your gardener whether they can help you with other tasks as well. Do they mow lawns, fertilise, tidy up your hedges and trees? Can they remove weeds from your garden and lay new garden materials? If you find a great gardener who is affordable, friendly and able to help you with all your lawn, yard and garden needs, you could be amazed at how stunning your home could look!
Can They Help You With Messy Jobs Such As Garden Waste & Rubbish Removal?
If you don’t own at trailer, it can be hard to get rid of large garden waste. Grass clippings, branches, debris and junk can be too big and/or hazardous to throw into your wheelie bin, nor will the council be too happy with you. Some Brisbane gardening companies offer service to clean up, remove and dispose of garden waste and yard rubbish for you. This can save you a lot of hard work and stress of organising expensive trailer hire for a dump trip. This can be particularly helpful if you are a rental property owner and require a yard clean up after a messy tenant. Your gardener could simply charge an additional fee to take care of it all for you, worry-free.
Don’t hesitate to talk to your gardener about all your garden, lawn and yard maintenance, care and design questions and dreams. Like it is always said, “you’ll never know, if you never ask.” Using one gardener or gardening company for all your needs can save you a lot of hassle and money sorting through different companies to do different jobs.
