No matter what size your garden is there will always be jobs that require attention as part of a routine. The warmth of spring and summer increases the frequency with which these jobs need to be done. The most common jobs that people with gardens need doing in Exeter are mowing lawns, general cleaning, weeding and trimming hedges. It isn't unusual for professional Exeter gardeners to help you out with repairing fences, laying patios, cleaning driveways and waste clearance.

Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "fella down the road" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. 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. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. Big projects such as garden fencing may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by cheque, card or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.
