Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. More frequent visits will be necessary in the spring and summertime and maybe none at all during the wintertime. While the jobs that people in Forfar need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are weeding, general cleaning, grass cutting and hedge trimming. Other jobs like cleaning driveways, fence repairs, waste removal and decking installation are also within most gardeners remit.

Decent gardeners will come at a premium, so don't expect them to work for peanuts. Charges generally start at approximately twenty pounds per hour. Usually gardeners will not be happy doing just one hours work. In order for them to do all the neccessary work they may need to put in at least two or three hours. Travel to and away from your home, bringing in and taking away mowers and tools, and the responsible disposal of your waste all have to be factored in.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. More involved tasks like landscaping can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by card, cheque or cash.

Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. Treating your gardener well could easily result in you getting some extra work done at no additional charge. In order to build a friendly rapport with your gardener and to pick their brains for gardening tips, go out for a natter from time to time. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.
