Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. The commonest gardening jobs that folk in Elstow need doing are weeding, general cleaning, hedge cutting and lawn mowing. Most professional Elstow gardeners will also help with driveway cleaning, waste removal, fence repairs and decking installation.

Experienced gardeners don't come cheap and if you are being charged around £20 per hour, that is about average. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

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 decking or fencing when payment of some money for materials is 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. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.
