Even if you only have a small garden, there are lots of jobs that need doing on a regular basis. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. Among the most common jobs needing to be done in Aldershot gardens are weeding, hedge pruning, mowing lawns and general tidying. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as patio installation, cleaning driveways, fence repairs and waste removal.

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. Exceptions can be made when large jobs like decking installation are involved, some money up front might then be appropriate. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by card, cash or cheque.

Be clear what your requirements are before the gardener begins work, have a list of jobs that need doing. Make the most of having a specialist on hand and follow their guidance with regards to your choice of plants and shrubs. Establish that all of the weeds, lawn trimmings and resulting waste will be removed, they don't all offer this service. It is generally better for them to take it rather than cluttering up your garden.

It is polite to offer your gardener a drink or two throughout the day, they can build up quite a thirst with all that hard graft. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. Don't be afraid to wander out and have a chat with your gardener when circumstances permit, this will help build a friendly connection with the gardener and encourage a sharing of ideas. It is not however a good idea to pester them constantly which will have the effect of annoying them and slowing the work down.
