Getting Help With Your Garden

Getting Help With Your Garden – If you are old, disabled, lazy or just too busy you may find it hard to keep up with your garden maintenence. Especially at this time of the year the garden can get overgrown pretty quickly. Once your lawn gets to a certain length it can become difficult to trim with a standard lawn mower. Maybe the time has come to call in a local gardener to help you with the major tasks. Sometimes it is enough just to get a gardener to get your garden straight just the once and then it becomes easier to keep it in order. But if you don’t think you will be able to give it the attention it needs then booking in regular visits by a gardener is a better idea. Discuss with your gardener how often your garden needs doing to keep it in good order, for some people it may be once a week, for others it might be once a fortnight or even once a month, though grass and weeds can grow pretty quickly in the summertime when rain followed by warm weather provides ideal growing conditions for these plants. A garden that is properly looked after is a blessing and you can get lots of pleasure from enjoying it and using it to its best advantage. It is nice to sit outside to have a cup of tea or even breakfast, when the weather is fine, and of course enjoy a barbeque. Summer barbeques are ever more popular in the UK and whenever the weather is fine there is a rush to the supermarket for all those burgers, sausages and chicken wings. Get the most from your garden and call in a gardener to look after it.

Laying a New Patio

Filed under: DIY,Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 7:17 am

Laying a New Patio – In the spring and summertime it is really nice to spend a bit of time in the garden after being cooped up in the house all through the winter. The trouble is the garden is not always in a fit state to use especially if the weather has been rainy for months on end. All you seem to get is muddy shoes and damp trouser bottoms. The time has come to get a decent patio built where you can sit outside in comfort, cook a barbeque, place a table and chairs and start entertaining family and friends. Sounds perfect doesn’t it? The trouble is it is not always that straightforward, you could probably attempt this little job yourself, but is is not a little job and there is going to be a lot of mess and waste to get rid of. Maybe you should call in the local patio layer or gardener to see if he is willing to do the job for you, for a price of course. Your local patio layer will design your patio for you, order and collect all the required materials, do the the job and then get rid of all the rubbish afterwards. Now that sounds like a better idea, lets get on the phone!

Get a Decking Fitter for Your Garden – With the summer upon us once more, thoughts turn to spending some time in the garden, but hell its been raining and all I get is muddy feet and clothes, not to mention the mess I make of the carpet when I walk back indoors. What is the solution? Well a great idea might be to get some timber decking fitted to provide a clean mud free area where I can walk, set a table and chairs, entertain friends and family and allow the kids to play without getting all messed up. This may be your story as well, so what should we do if we are not really capable of doing this work ourselves. The answer might be to call in the local decking fitter who will be able to do all this work for us, he will order and collect the correct materials, prepare and level the area, lay the decking in a professional manner and treat the decking with preservative so that it will last a nice long time. Sound good to you? It does to me to, I’ll be on the phone tomorrow and let you know how I get on. I have spent so much time on my property in Aylesbury, I might as well finish the garden off as well.

Time to Get Your Garden Straight

Filed under: Gardens,Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , — needahand @ 9:19 am

Time to Get Your Garden Straight – With the winter fading and the better weather arriving, it is a good time to start thinking about getting your garden straight. Bad weather, winter storms and months of neglect, may have left you garden looking somewhat dishevelled. With our busy working lives taking up most of our waking hours it is not always easy to find the time to spend on your garden, and even when you do it seems like 3 weeks later it lokks just as bad as before. Perhaps you should start thinking about getting in a professional gardener to take over the hard work for you. Book on in for a regular visit and your garden should be looking in tip top shape before you know it. You can then spend your leisure time enjoying your garden rather than working on it. Ask a friend or family member to recommend a gardener, don’t just pick the first and cheapest one that comes along. Many so called “gardeners” are not gardeners at all, just individuals trying to earn some pin money by mowing lawns, trimming hedges and clearing up dead leaves. If that is all you want done then fine, but it is better to employ a gardener who knows his stuff and can deal with problems as they arrive, having a knowledge of what will grow in your garden, what needs doing and when and understands the effects of the seasons and weather on your plants and green spaces.
