These routine jobs have to be done more frequently throughout the spring and summertime. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are general cleaning, lawn mowing, hedge pruning and weeding. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like waste clearance, laying patios, fence repairs and cleaning driveways

Regular garden maintenance can cost quite a bit of money because an experienced gardener will probably charge you something like twenty pounds per hour worked. You may find that your gardener will not be prepared to put in just an hours work. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. When you consider things like travel, tool unloading and re-loading, and taking your waste to the tip this is easy to understand.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by card, cheque or cash.
