Things To Consider When Hiring Garden Maintenance Services

How to Hire Garden Maintenance Services

The only problem with creating your own personal paradise at home is the maintenance.

With such a chaotic schedule and loads of things on your to-do list, finding the time to enjoy your garden, let alone maintain it, is difficult!

Professional landscapers offer a range of maintenance services that can be tailored to your unique needs to keep your garden flourishing across seasons and schedules.

From lawn care to weed removal, garden refuse removal, and beyond, you won’t regret hiring professional residential garden maintenance services.

However, there are some factors to consider when choosing which landscaping company is right for you.

Let’s take a closer look!

Think About The Seasons

Weather has a significant impact on the type and level of services needed. For example, pruning services are best served in winter, when flowers and fruit trees are dormant as it encourages flowering and fruiting in spring.

Mulching garden beds works best in autumn and spring as it insulates the roots of your plants from the cold whilst retaining water as temperatures start to rise.

Lawn maintenance is essential across seasons.

Keep this in mind when hiring certain garden maintenance services. However, when working with landscapers who offer full maintenance packages, like Sydney Garden Maintenance & Landscaping, they will advise on which services you need and when.

Do Your Homework

The internet has made it easier for shady contractors to position themselves as ‘specialist landscapers,’ so it’s important to do your research.

Get a quote from each landscaper. Then, read through their reviews on Google and Facebook to get an idea of their services from past and current customers.

The Proof Is In The Portfolio

Any landscaping company worth their salt will be infinitely proud of their work, happily displaying their past projects on their website for you to browse.

Check out their portfolio to see if their style, attention to detail, and craftsmanship resonates with what you need.

Without a portfolio, you can’t be confident that the contractors you’re considering are experienced and knowledgeable.

Look For Locals

You may be surprised to hear it, but having localised knowledge is an essential ingredient in maintaining your garden.

Plant needs, problems, and growth are significantly affected by the climates in which they live. These climates can be as big as your city and even as small as your own garden!

When choosing residential garden maintenance services, you’ll want to choose a local landscaper. They will have extensive experience working with gardens in your area, even your street, and the knowledge needed to ensure your garden thrives, rather than simply survives.
