A Simple Solution To Garden Maintenance
Many home owners these days are busy with work, family and other interests that make this the most time-poor generation in history. The days when gardening was a favourite pursuit for most people are long gone. Lazy weekends tending to garden beds have been replaced by frenetic activities such as driving children to and from sport, shopping and catching up with friends.
Too Busy to Garden? Let Someone Else Do It
This change in work/life balance, while being unwelcome for those affected, has seen a big demand for other people to do their household tasks, including gardening. Rather than sit back and watch their neat gardens and yards become a tangled mess, ultra-busy home-owners are hiring professional gardeners.
We have become aware of this trend over the past few years, as more and more professional gardeners are now regular customers of ours. They enjoy the convenience of pulling into our yard at the Bacchus Marsh Redgum and Garden Centre on their way to a job, and loading up with the things they need.
Extra Time – Fun Weekends
For home owners, there are several advantages to handing over the care of their lawns and gardens to professionals. The most obvious one is the extra time they have to spend with family and friends, or enjoying other activities. They can look forward to the weekend with excitement, have fun doing something interesting and start the working week refreshed and relaxed.
Professional gardeners also know the types of plants that are suitable for the local areas where they work. They identify shrubs that are struggling, not because of lack of care, but because they are just unsuitable for the location. When they replace these with something that will thrive naturally, they are saving the owners time and money trying to keep plants alive that will always struggle.
Clean ups, Rubbish Removal and Re-landscaping
Landscaping features like bird baths, fountains, statues and rocks can become shabby over time, needing cleaning, painting or relocating to another spot in the garden. A professional gardener will remove anything that is beyond saving and dispose of it to local council requirements. Pruning shrubs, lopping tree branches and other infrequent tasks can also be negotiated with a professional.
Lawns Mowed – Pests Despatched
Professional gardeners do much more than just mow lawns. They also keep garden pests and plant diseases under control through regular inspections, cutting back infested areas, and dealing with major outbreaks. Because this is their livelihood, they know the best products to use while being careful of the environmental and health effects.
Home owners who have experienced the advantages of having a professional look after their yards tell us that they now enjoy their weekends. They still drop in to buy something new that has caught their eye, but they leave the item for the gardener to install or plant.
