The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. Typically people with gardens in Consett need jobs done like lawn mowing, general tidying, weeding and hedge pruning. Most decent gardeners in Consett will tackle other jobs such as waste removal, laying patios, garden fencing and cleaning driveways.

How much you pay depends on who you hire, the hourly rate for a professional gardener will be at least £20, while you might get away with £10 - £15 if you take a chance on that "fellow down the road". In order to make much difference to your garden, most gardeners will need to invest more than an hour of hard graft. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

It is not the norm for Consett gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. An exception can be made when a big project like landscaping is involved, and lots of materials have to be purchased. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you. Unless you want to keep it for your compost heap.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. It's important that you and your gardener have a friendly relationship with each other. Pop into the garden for regular chats to discuss gardening ideas and plans. Don't stand there all day twittering on however, which only results in a frustrated gardener and an incomplete garden.
