The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Eccleston gardens are likely to be mowing lawns, weeding, hedge trimming and general tidying. Additional tasks like decking installation, driveway cleaning, waste removal and repairing fences will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "fellow down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. This rule may not apply with larger projects such as fencing or decking when payment of some money for materials is normal. Ensure you have some cash to hand on gardening day because most gardeners prefer this kind of payment when they have finished. To avoid any arguments later on, make sure you get a receipt no matter what kind of payment you agree on.

Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Once your gardener starts you will have an expert at your fingertips, make the most of it and get plenty of advice and guidance. Some gardeners are not willing to dispose of all your garden waste, ensuring that yours will do this should be a priority. A big pile of waste that you can't get rid of is not something that you want left in your garden.

Though usually a gardener will bring along a flask or bottle of water, it is nice to offer him/her a cup of tea while working hard on your garden. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. Building a friendly relationship with your gardener is always a good idea, it enables you to soak up a little of their knowledge and ideas. Constant interruptions should however be avoided.
