Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. It is essential to get these jobs done even more frequently when spring and then summer arrives. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Fernhill gardens are likely to be general tidying, trimming hedges, weeding and lawn mowing. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like cleaning driveways, waste clearance, fence repairs and laying patios

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "guy down the street" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as landscaping where considerable amounts of materials are needed. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. Make sure that you get a receipt, no matter what type of payment you agree on, this will avoid arguments down the line.
