It is probably worthwhile to hire a professional gardener on a routine basis if you haven't got the time and energy to keep your garden in tip-top shape, but still want garden you can take pride in and that can be enjoyed (which I guess is the aim of most homeowners in Kelso).

Age UK Gardening Service: Pensioners in Kelso may be able to make use of a gardening service that's sometimes offered by Age UK, and their representatives are DBS checked and approved for peace of mind and reassurance. Just because this is a charity, don't assume that this is a free service, in reality Age UK charge around £20-25 per hour, which when compared with gardeners in general, can often be more pricey. General maintenance is the name of the game in relation to Age UK's gardening service, and while chores like:

  • Trimming/Pruning.
  • Planting.
  • Sweeping up Leaves.
  • Laying Compost.
  • Digging.
  • Potting.
  • Mowing the Grass.
  • Weeding.
  • General Tidying Up.
  • Cutting Back.
...are included, tasks like waste removal, tree surgery and landscaping usually aren't.

It is essential that if you want to hire a gardener to maintain the care for your garden in Kelso, that you realise the time that will be needed to achieve your aims. You could be thinking that a couple of hours per week will be sufficient to keep your garden looking good, but unless your garden is relatively small, more hours might be needed. If you were to invest that limited number of hours on your garden every week, you can be fairly certain that you'd soon develop a backlog of work. To get the good outcome that you want, you should be mindful when agreeing the time that's required with the gardener, and allow for the time, skill and effort involved.

While the vast majority of Kelso gardeners will have developed their skills over time, you may come across the odd gardener in Kelso who has got proper training and horticultural qualifications. The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) certificates are among the qualifications to keep an eye out for, and some enthusiastic gardeners in Kelso will have taken the trouble to study in their spare time to accomplish these, whilst at the same time gaining valuable hands-on experience through their daily endeavours. To develop their knowledge and abilities some of the best known gardening firms in Kelso also permit their staff to work towards Level 2 and 3 City and Guilds Certificates. The other way that gardeners might have acquired horticultural experience is by serving as apprentices, and again local contractors will be responsible providing them with this kick-start. Uncovering a local Kelso gardener with qualifications like this will obviously not be a concern if you just need weed control, grass cutting or hedge trimming.

Although insurance may not be so important for a part-time gardener in Kelso who just helps with gardening odd jobs now and then, it is certainly essential for a trustworthy Kelso gardener, who needs to be fully prepared for any eventuality. Your first thought might be that accidents and injury are improbable when pursuing a leisurely task like gardening, but in reality such incidents happen much more frequently than you may envision. The use of sharp tools such as chainsaws, hedge trimmers and secateurs can be pretty dangerous for the user, as can being faced with spikey hedges, damaged branches and wasps nests.

You'll surely now appreciate why you should ask for evidence of insurance cover, and why it's so vital for every gardener in Kelso to have this. This is paramount if you're using a sizeable gardening company in Kelso or even a gardener who works for himself/herself, and you should check that they have adequate public liability insurance coverage for both damage to your premises and accidents which may befall the gardener while working on your behalf. With most public liability policies for gardeners, the coverage will range from £1 mill - £5 mill.

Buying the Best Plants for Your Kelso Garden

I know you remember how thrilled you were when you bought your new house and saw a large piece of land you wanted to use for a plant and flower garden. You might have gone to the nearest lawn and garden store and bought whatever plant and flowers seemed to be nice. You planned and planted all those plants and flowers in your new garden, but now half of them are lifeless and half of them will not grow. The explanation why you couldn't succeed is you just didn't know what soil to use for what plant. Here are some tips to assist you stay on course with your gardening.

To begin with, you have to know what kind of soil you have now. There are actually soil variations that tend to be always moist and others that will be dry. The way the soil can absorb water determines if it will dry up quickly or not. In case your soil dries up quickly right after a rain, you would want to get plants that do not require a lot of moisture to survive. In the event the soil in your back garden stays wet for a long time after a rain, then you probably want plants that can handle wet soil and not mold up.

Another thing to think about is how much sunlight your garden receives each day. There are plants that can grow perfectly in direct sunlight. Additionally, you'll find plants which may end up dying if they receive too much sunlight during the day. The same often happens for gardens that may be under a substantial amount of shade. Therefore, while making a choice on what plants to get, consider the amount of sunlight your garden gets each day.

One more thing to think about is making sure that the vegetation is not too close together. When you have all of your plants bunched together there is a possibility that all the plants won't get the water and nutrients they need. A lot of plants can simply die-off due to this fact. Consequently you should definitely disperse your plants out leaving 1 and 1/2 feet to 2 feet of clearance between all the plants. And when you decide on larger plants or plants will grow to be rather large, be sure to make some extra space.

By sticking to the simple tips above you will notice that you will be able to grow a beautiful garden with out having to worry about all the plants dying. The garden will likely require less maintenance than if you threw caution to the wind. The key is to keep in mind that your garden is something to be enjoyed instead of something to be labored over.

Patio Cleaning Kelso

You can clean your patio easily using bleach and water. A diluted solution of the substance will work well, but you should not apply it directly to the surface. The solution can damage the stone or discolour it. To avoid this, use non-staining deicing salt instead. Spring is a great time to clean your patio. Take the time to check joints, as well.

Patio Cleaning Kelso

Before applying the mixture, you should move any plants from the patio's edge. This way, the solution won't harm them. However, it might kill weeds. If you have a garden containing flowers, you should cover them up or move them to a different area. You can also use this solution on weeds and other unwanted plants.

If you use chlorine bleach, you need to be careful while applying it to your patio. Be sure to wear protective clothing and goggles to avoid any eye or skin irritation. Bleach is a powerful chemical and should only be applied to the patio after a couple of hours. If you can't wait, you can use brown soap instead. It is less aggressive and safer than chemical cleaning solutions.

Cleaning your patio can be a complicated task, but it isn't impossible. A little elbow grease and a few supplies will go a long way. If you have concrete patio, it may be necessary to use a power washer to remove the dirt. If possible, choose a commercial cleaning solution that is free of harsh chemicals. If you can, choose a mild day to do your patio cleaning. This will prevent the cleaning solution from drying too quickly. You may also want to invest in a leaf blower or broom to remove loose debris. A garden hose with a spray nozzle is also useful to spray the concrete. If you don't fancy cleaning your own patio, your friendly local gardener in Kelso will be happy to do it for you.
