Qualifications & Licenses
You should always check that your gardener has the relevant qualifications and licences to operate legally at your property.
These are required by law for operatives to apply pesticides to your garden and grounds. This includes weed killer, moss killer and treatments for pests.
This is required by law to remove green waste from your property. Unlicensed waste carriers cannot use registered dump sites. This leads to the possibility that your waste will be 'fly tipped'. Waste remains the responsibility of the person who owns the waste (you) so if 'fly tipped' waste is traced back to your property, you will be fined for dumping it illegally. Food for thought.
