4 Great Reasons to Hire a Gardener

Whether you are a homeowner with a demanding schedule, an enthusiastic but overwhelmed gardener, or are simply disinterested in yard work, a great option is to hire a gardener. Maybe you have a place to relax, entertain, or view from the kitchen window, but you don’t know how to maintain it. Or maybe you can’t find the time to keep up with the maintenance. Whatever a property’s size, a professional gardener can help.

1. Knowledge & Experience

A professional gardener simply knows what works.  Using her experience, she can quickly assess existing plantings and offer suggestions. This may include minor adjustments such as weeding a garden bed. Or she might start by pruning, transplanting, and cutting back perennials. Plants may be added for extra seasonal interest or removed due to poor performance. Gardeners address all of these concerns.

Gardeners use their experience to prioritize tasks, understanding that some things should be done immediately, and other things can wait. They also use their knowledge of plants to encourage the ones you want and eliminate the ones you don’t. With the right strategy, gardeners can solve most issues, from pesky weeds to lack of visual appeal.

2. Reduce Stress

Sitting in a beautiful space reduces stress, unless that same space is weedy or disorganized. An experienced gardener helps create and maintain beautiful spaces by keeping them neat, healthy, and interesting. She can add elements to a garden that will enhance the experience of being outdoors. Gardeners can add colorful containers to the front porch, plants to attract birds and butterflies, or plants for cut flowers. She may even add edible plants for your family to enjoy at a moment’s notice.

When you hire a gardener with regularly scheduled visits, you have the piece of mind that your place will never get out of control. Better yet, it’s beauty will grow over time!

3. Save Time & Money

When you hire a gardener, you can potentially save time and money.  If life is too busy and the garden does not make it to the top of your list, hire a gardener. She can take care of the garden, so you can take care of everything else. And when you’re ready to jump back in, it won’t be overgrown with weeds!

Purchasing the wrong plants for your space adds up quickly. If you love to work in your garden but are not sure what plant goes where or why your garden is behaving a certain way, a gardener can guide you. To ensure your plants thrive, they need to be placed in a spot for optimal performance. Your gardener will ensure that you end up with the right plant in the right place.

4. Increase Your Home Value

Whether you are planning on staying in your home for life or just a few years, having a beautiful garden adds value to every home. If you plan on selling your home, a well-maintained garden will be attractive to buyers making it more valuable. Alternatively, if you plan to stay in the home for a long time, beautiful gardens increase the value to you. When you hire a professional gardener, you ensure that value is realized.

Gardening can be tricky. What to plant? Sun or shade? How much water does this plant need? Is that a weed? When you hire a gardener she will answer these questions for you. Whether your space needs a lot of attention or just some minor maintenance, we are here to help.
