Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. The warmth of spring and summer increases the frequency with which these jobs need to be done. As a rule trimming hedges, lawn mowing, general tidying and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with fence repairs, waste clearance, driveway cleaning and decking installation.

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. It is unlikely that any gardener will be able to achieve very much in just one hour. Certain Great Harwood gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by cheque, card or cash, this negates later disputes.

While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. Having a friendly rapport with your gardener is also important, so chat with them on a regular basis, discuss plans and bounce ideas off each other. But you should not hinder their work with endless talking, they may rush to catch up and not do the job properly.
