A beautifully maintained garden is what every outdoor enthusiast strives for, but the reality is that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication! Sometimes, you might need the help of local garden maintenance services to help get things under control. In this blog, we take a look at the reasons why you might need to use a company like us.
What can garden maintenance companies do?
Firstly you need to figure out exactly what it is that needs to be done to your garden. Do you need regular upkeep and maintenance such as grass cutting or weed removal? Or are you wanting a full one-off garden renovation? Maybe you’d like to continue with the gardening yourself, but need a little guidance on what to do and when to do it.
Mowing the lawn can admittedly be a laborious task! But, it needs to be done to maintain the quality of your grass. Garden maintenance services can include monthly, bi-monthly grass cutting, or of course any other time frame that suits you.
Other than mowing, services may include edging, watering and leaf blowing. If you choose a professional garden maintenance service (like us!) we can bring a high-quality lawnmower, or ride-on mower if you have a large lawn. This speeds up the process and makes for a more precise finish.
There’s not really any special way to weed effectively, we all know the usual tips and tricks… but how nice would it be for someone else to do the hard work for you!? Weeding is a manual process, which means a lot of hard work and time you might not necessarily have. Weeding includes removal of weeds from flower beds and lawns, a weed killer can be used if necessary and weed-reducing methods such as mulch or weed mat can be placed if it’s what you’d like.
Trimming trees and hedges
Hedges, bushes and shrubs can quickly get out of control, especially with the unpredictable weather we have here fuelling their growth! A regular trim can help to keep them in a presentable state, keeping your garden tidy and giving your home more curb appeal.
Fencing not only gives you privacy, but it can also add some character to your outdoor space! There are many different types of fencing, so do have a think about what would suit your garden. get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help.
How much do garden maintenance services cost?
Materials and equipment needed: Some big tasks will require more tools and materials such as weed killer, lawnmowers, decking, wood for fencing or raised beds.
Amount of work needed: A quick tidy up is no doubt going to cost less than a full garden clearance. It really depends on the amount of work that needs to be done. Get in touch with us for a bespoke quote.
Seasonality: During the colder months, the gardening tasks will naturally decrease. Yes, your garden will still need some attention, but not as much as in the summer. Gardener’s availability fluctuates with the seasons too, which can also mean a fluctuation in pricing to reflect demand.
Why is regular garden maintenance important
If you value your garden but you simply don’t have the time to spend making it look the way you want, then a garden maintenance service would be a great choice for you. Similarly, if you’re unable to do as much as you’d like due to health issues, then getting professionals to tend to your garden is a good idea. Here at Rosewood, we offer all of the above services and more, catering to customers all over Surrey.
