There’s an old saying that if you want something doing right you should do it yourself. That might apply in some cases, but when it comes to delicate operations and heavy machinery, getting the professionals in to give you a hand could pay dividends.
Hedge cutting is an arduous task for all of us who have a hedge in the back garden, and the equipment we use to keep it in check can be pretty dangerous if not used correctly. Likewise, if you need to cut heavy, rotten or snapped branches off a tree, you’re probably better off asking for help.
If you’re not as young as you used to be, even something as simple as painting the garden shed or clearing out guttering has the potential for a nasty fall, so employ the services of a handyman for any high up jobs that you can’t complete easily.
And when it comes to lifting and carrying, the same applies. Lifting heavy paving slabs or bags of compost could do permanent damage to some peoples’ backs, making a gardener a sound investment that could save your mobility.
For most of us there’s at least one task in the garden we find arduous or downright difficult, so save the stress and call in the professionals.
