The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months.

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 "fella down the street". Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. Most gardeners will have a minimum visit time of 2 hours. It is not just a case of working on your garden, they need to allow for travelling time and visits to the local rubbish tip.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. After the completion of your garden it would not be at all uncommon for your gardener to ask to be paid in cash. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.

Be clear about your expectations from the very beginning, prepare a list of work you need doing. The layout of your garden is something any decent gardener will be able to help you with, they will know which plants perform best where, don't be scared to ask for guidance. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this. Except when you have a use for it, such as building a compost heap with your lawn trimmings.

Gardeners are used to providing their own refreshments, but this shouldn't stop you from offering them a cup of tea or even a cold drink on a hot summer's day. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. By chatting with your gardener you can start to establish a friendly relationship, this should enable you to immerse yourself in their ideas and soak up some of their gardening knowledge. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.
