Even if you've got a small garden, there will be various tasks that require attention in a routine manner. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. Among the most common jobs needing to be done in Cottingley gardens are weeding, grass cutting, general cleaning and hedge pruning.

Don't expect to get a decent gardener for peanuts, while that "fellow down the road" might only ask for £10 to £12 per hour, you're unlikely to get a professional for much less than £20 an hour. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. Getting to and from your house, unloading and re-loading tools and equipment, and transporting your garden waste to the local tip are all factors that they have to consider before taking on a gardening job.

Payment in advance is not something that gardeners usually ask for, so be cautious if your gardener requires this. Having said that, a deposit for materials may be required for bigger projects like decking or fencing. Of course gardeners often ask for payment in cash after the work is completed. Whether you pay by cheque, cash or card, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.
