Even if you only have a small garden, there are lots of jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Felpham gardens are general cleaning, weeding, hedge trimming and lawn mowing. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with driveway cleaning, waste clearance, fence repairs and decking installation.

An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. You must take into account travelling time, loading and unloading equipment and visits to the tip with your waste.

Any gardener who asks for payment in advance should raise your suspicions, you want to see results before forking out any money. Paying a deposit for materials might be appropriate for bigger jobs like garden fencing. When the work has been completed to your satisfaction it would not be unusual for your gardener to ask for payment in cash. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by card, cheque or cash, this negates later disputes.
