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. The average gardener in Duns will not be satisfied with doing your garden in one hour sessions. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Duns gardeners. Travel to and away from your home, bringing in and taking away mowers and tools, and the responsible disposal of your waste all have to be factored in.

You should be suspicious of any gardener who demands 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. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case.

It is customary to offer your gardener a hot or cold drink, though many bring their own refreshments. This is always appreciated by gardeners and they will repay you by doing an extra fine job. Don't be afraid to wander out and have a chat with your gardener when circumstances permit, this will help build a friendly connection with the gardener and encourage a sharing of ideas.
