What I do:
At Four Seasons Garden Services - operating since 2009, I mostly carry out garden maintenance (among other things- see Ash Tutors out more).
I find most people are looking for the following in a gardener:
reliability, honesty, trustworthiness
good knowledge of plants and weeds!
someone who'll prune shrubs, weed borders, cut the grass and edge the lawn
someone who can apply lawn feeds at the right time
free spraying of paving/stones weeds
free spraying of lawn weeds
Of course, there are those who want to dig a little deeper (no pun intended!) and make use of my extensive horticultural knowledge, but they are few in number.
As a rule of thumb, I quote for all jobs first and need to see it in person. Regular visits are for grass cuts - then I would quote for other work as and when needed.
If you're into plants, you might want to subscribe to my Youtube channel where I post updates of my tropical greenhouse. Here's the link.
I look forward to meeting you...
N.B. I am only able to look at jobs that are within 6 miles of WN4 8XR.
