The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Such routine jobs will need attention more frequently at certain times of the year, in particular spring and summer. As a rule general cleaning, trimming hedges, mowing lawns and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Additional tasks like waste clearance, cleaning driveways, garden fencing and laying patios will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.

On the subject of price, this can vary with areas and gardeners, but charges of about twenty pounds per hour are normal and may be even higher. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. When you consider things like travel, tool unloading and re-loading, and taking your waste to the tip this is easy to understand.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. After the completion of your garden it would not be at all uncommon for your gardener to ask to be paid in cash. Insist on getting a receipt especially where cash is involved, this will avoid any disputes about unpaid work later on.

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. Getting the full benefit of your gardeners expertise is something you should always seek to do. Some gardeners are not willing to dispose of all your garden waste, ensuring that yours will do this should be a priority.

While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. Such thoughfulness will be appreciated and should ensure that your gardener does the best job possible. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.
