Local gardeners & gardening companies

What can a local gardener help with?

If you’re looking for someone to take care of your garden property maintenance tasks, such as trimming shrubs or getting your lawn mowed, then you’ll need the help of a gardener.  

If, on the other hand, you want to upgrade your garden by getting a new patio, deck or pergola installed, then you’ll need the services of a local garden landscaper. 

Jobs gardeners can do  Jobs garden landscapers can do 
Planting, pruning and weed control Laying decking or paving 
Lawn care and lawn treatments Laying new artificial grass or Astro turf 
Hedge trimming or hedge cutting (removal) Adding a water feature 
Pressure washing outdoor spaces Adding a pergola or trellis 
Installing soil irrigation or drainage Installing a fence, gate or garden wall 
General garden maintenance Garden design 

Gardeners tend to be busier during the summer months when the weather’s good and everyone’s spending more time outdoors. It’s a good idea to hire your gardener or landscape gardener before the summer rush. You’ll be more likely to get a better rate for the work if you do. 

If you know you’ll need their services regularly, you can also hire a gardener to carry out repeat gardening work like lawn mowing. Some gardeners may also offer deals for repeat work, so make sure to ask. 

If you’re looking to improve your home’s kerb appeal by getting a new driveway installed, then you’ll need the help of a driveway specialist. Or, if you need tree services such as a tree removal, then contact a local tree surgeon.

How much do gardeners cost to hire?

The cost of gardening services can vary based on several factors: 

  • The size of your garden: Larger gardens generally require more time and effort, and therefore cost more to maintain and upgrade 
  • Your location: Where you live in the UK has an impact on labour costs 
  • Your choice of materials: If you plan to use premium plants or materials, this will have an impact on the overall cost 

The average cost of garden landscaping projects in 2023 is: 

  • Between £1,500 and £15,000 for a garden deck 
  • Between £1,100 and £7,200 for a garden patio 
  • Between £1,000 and £5,200 for a garden fence 

Or, if you’re looking to hire a gardener, you can expect to pay between £25 and £40 an hour, depending on where you live in the UK. 

For more details on garden landscaping costs, check out our garden landscaping cost guide.

What should I consider when hiring a gardener?

Factors to consider when choosing gardener services near me 

It’s really important that you choose a reliable gardener or garden landscaping company to carry out work on your garden. Failing to do this can result in stress and expensive repairs.   

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your tradespeople: 

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of successful projects  
  1. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers 
  1. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability  
  1. Are offering the garden services you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by 
  1. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local garden landscaping companies  

A local gardener or landscaper is more likely to respond quickly, as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.  

Post a job today to find a reliable, local garden specialist. 


Planning permission for gardening jobs 

Planning permission isn’t normally needed for gardening jobs, though it can sometimes be needed for some garden landscaping projects such as decking, fencing, garden walls, and gates. 

Projects that often require planning permission include: 

  • Paving your front garden or turning it into a driveway 
  • Decking that covers more than 50% of your total garden area 
  • Garden fences that are over two metres high  

For more information on when you’ll need to apply for permission for garden projects, read our planning permission guide or visit the Planning Portal website. 

Benefits of hiring a gardener  

There are plenty of benefits to hiring a gardener or garden landscaper to give your garden a new lease of life. These include: 

  1. Boost your kerb appeal – make your home stand out by getting a professional gardener to maintain it 
  1. Save your time and energy – reclaim some of your spare time and enjoy your beautiful garden without having to lift a finger 
  1. Benefit from local expertise – garden specialists bring years of experience and knowledge to the job 

On top of this, garden specialists also come with all the tools they’ll need to get your project completed professionally. When you’re ready to hire, post a job to request a quote from a local gardener or garden landscaper.

Horrible ,we had garage conversion done by Lee, 2 months after water started to leak from the ceiling, called him to check it, he came said he will take ceiling down, check if this is condensation, dry it and put it up again, we set the date to come and fix it, 7 months later nothing has been done, Lee didn’t answer any emails or phone calls, we had to take ceiling down ourselves to find out he cut pipe from bathroom fan just to make the wall look straight causing condensation

Absolutely fantastic service. We had cracks in our two main bedrooms, hallways and living room that needed repairing whilst we were living in the house with a baby and small child. Tilly got three men on the job to get it all completed asap. The team worked flat out without breaks and got done in 2.5 days (Tilly quoted aprox 3 days). They did over and above what I’d asked them to painting areas they hadn’t even replastered to make the hose look fresh. Tilly quoted & charged very reasonably too.

Carl and the team undertook a full landscape, fencing and decking project. It wasn't a small task, with hidden tree stumps, heavily overgrown garden and uneven levels. The team were brilliant and had the whole garden fully landscaped, including a new fence, roll on lawn, deck and a few other additional tasks completed within a week. Team turned up on time every day and worked solidly to get the job finished within the quoted timeframe. Would strongly recommend Root2Roof for the works they completed.
