Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. Commonly weeding, hedge cutting, lawn mowing and general tidying are the gardening tasks that people in Dartford need done. Most professional Dartford gardeners will also help with patio installation, repairing fences, driveway cleaning and waste removal.

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. An exception to this rule of thumb would be with more extensive tasks for example patio laying when being asked for a deposit for materials is quite normal. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. Insist on getting a receipt especially where cash is involved, this will avoid any disputes about unpaid work later on.
