Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. Typically general tidying, lawn mowing, trimming hedges and weeding are the more common jobs that folk with gardens in Basildon need done. It isn't unusual for professional Basildon gardeners to help you out with laying patios, repairing fences, driveway cleaning and waste removal.

When hiring a professional gardener you are paying for his/her expertise, so expect to pay in the region of £20 for each hour worked. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. When you take into consideration travelling time, getting equipment on and off the van, and going to the local tip with your garden waste, this is understandable.

Don't pay any Basildon gardener in advance of the job being done, this is not the norm and they may disappear with your money. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by card, cash or cheque.

Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. Any decent Basildon gardener will be more than willing to share their knowledge of plants and shrubs, use their guidance to choose what is best for your garden. Taking away all the garden waste such as hedge clippings and lawn trimmings may not be included in the service, therefore you should establish whether your gardener will do this or not.

Spare a thought for your gardener toiling away on your property with no facilities at hand. Offer them the use of your toilet and perhaps provide a drink. Considerations like this will always be appreciated and will often result in a better standard of work. Having regular discussions with your gardener helps you to keep abreast of the latest ideas, and also develop a friendly relationship. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.

Basildon Garden Design: If your plan is to not just have your garden tidied up but also to have it completely re-designed, you may need someone other than a standard gardener.
