Nelson Landscaping & Gardening Services

Nelson Gardeners: Although it may be the case that not every homeowner in Nelson has a garden - there are definitely lots that do, and for those property owners, keeping a garden in good condition can be a demanding task. Putting off the maintenance of the garden is an activity that a lot of householders in Nelson would readily concede to being guilty of, and gardens that are left to their own devices will simply continue to grow and get even more unmanageable, therefore action needs to be taken. And don't forget that this is a procedure which must be done on a monthly basis and is not a once only cure, so you're going to need the help of a reliable gardener in Nelson, if you are unable or reluctant do this on your own.

There are lots of householders who have not the slightest interest in maintaining or working on their garden, but even the odd ones who are prepared to have a crack will possibly need the help of a specialist Nelson gardener every now and then. You may be in a situation where your garden has been neglected and become overgrown and needs somebody to gather up all of the rubbish and make it look tidy once again, or maybe you have a project in mind to overhaul your whole garden and give it a new look - a pond or some decking perhaps? Using the services of an expert Nelson gardener won't only make certain that the job is carried out correctly but will also save you a considerable amount of energy and time.

Features of gardening such as the form of garden you're able to manage, garden layouts and the correct plants for your soil type, are all challenges that a knowledgeable Nelson gardener will be able to offer advice about. There isn't any point in planting and landscaping a garden, that could be very expensive, if several months later your shortage of capability or time leaves only a view of dead plants and rampaging weeds.

If you would like a garden you can have pride in, and which will be the envy of your neighbours and friends in Nelson, then it is probably advantageous to engage a gardener on a full-time or part-time basis if you have not got the time or inclination to do it on your own.

If you're a pensioner in Nelson you may be hesitant to allow tradespeople onto your property. To solve this problem, Age UK sometimes offer a gardening service which only uses DBS checked and approved tradespeople. We should emphasise that this isn't a free service, and charges are much in line with what gardeners in general charge - £20-£25 per hour, depending on the area concerned. The objective of Age UK's gardeners service is to offer general maintenance only, projects such as waste removal, landscaping and tree surgery aren't normally included. Chores that you can get done will be stuff like:

  • Spreading Compost.
  • Cutting Back.
  • Mowing the Grass.
  • Planting.
  • Potting Out.
  • Weeding.
  • Digging.
  • General Tidying Up.
  • Trimming/Pruning.
  • Sweeping Leaves.

If you do opt to call in a professional Nelson gardener, it is vital that you bear in mind the amount of time that is needed to keep your garden in good condition. Householders on the whole seem to assume that an hour or two each week is enough to keep a garden looking great, and of course this might be sufficient if you've got a relatively small garden, or if your garden is already well-maintained, but for many gardens in Nelson this will not be enough. Should you only work upon your garden for a couple of hours each week you would fairly quickly think it's starting to look neglected and unkempt. When speaking about work hours with your gardener, you need to take into account the ability, specialised equipment and work needed to deliver the results needed.

To increase their knowledge some gardeners in Nelson may have undertaken voluntary projects with wildlife and conservation trusts, while more will likely have horticultural qualifications or many years of practical experience. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) certificates are among the qualifications that you should watch out for, and some keen gardeners in Nelson will have done part-time studies to acquire these, while at the same time gaining hands-on experience through practical work. To improve their skillsets and knowledge some professional gardening companies in Nelson also enable their team members to work on Level 2 and 3 City and Guilds Certificates. Apprenticeships are an additional path into a career in horticulture, and some Nelson gardeners might have been offered this sort of kick-start by local contractors. Needless to say a gardener with particular qualifications will not be needed for the most common jobs you will require in your garden, like grass cutting, weed control or hedge trimming.

Gardening Insurance: While insurance may not be necessary for a part-time gardener in Nelson who just helps out with gardening tasks on occasion, it is definitely a must for a dependable Nelson gardener, who needs to be fully prepared for any eventuality. Now, you may well believe that working on a garden is a fairly leisurely occupation and that gardeners aren't inclined to have accidents, but unfortunately that could not be more wrong. When you consider the fact that gardeners will often be dealing with loose branches, disease carrying bugs and thorny hedges, and using sharp tools like hedge clippers, chainsaws and secateurs, it's easy to see how accidents could happen.

I am positive that you will now understand why a good level of insurance cover is necessary for any professional Nelson gardener, and also why you should ask for verification of insurance before you even think about engaging someone. To cover both accidents that may happen to them whilst working on your garden, and damages that they could cause to your property, you should ensure they've got suitable public liability insurance whether you decide to use a sizeable gardening company or an independent gardener in Nelson. Most public liability policies for gardeners will cover from £1 million to £5 million.

Patio Cleaning Nelson

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 Nelson

Before cleaning your patio, you must remove all furniture, plants, and other accessories. This is to avoid getting a muddy patio. Also, make sure to remove weeds. Then, use a pressure washer to clean away dirt and grime. Then, dry the patio furniture and put it back on the patio.

You can also use a vinegar solution to clean your patio. A vinegar solution is more effective than water and is safer to use compared to chemicals. A strong mixture of water and vinegar can be applied to your patio to remove dirt and grime. After the solution has been applied, you can rinse it off with a hose or pressure washer. If you want to clean the patio more thoroughly, you can use a bleach solution. However, this chemical can cause damage to plants and softer stone.

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. A local Nelson gardener will be happy to do this for you, if you don't fancy cleaning your own patio.
