Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. These repeat jobs will have to be done a lot more often in springtime and summer, dying off to nothing by winter. The list of the most common gardening jobs will come as no surprise and includes the likes of general tidying, hedge pruning, grass cutting and weeding. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like repairing fences, laying patios, cleaning driveways and waste removal

Getting your garden done by a professional isn't cheap and you are likely to be paying close to £20 per hour for the priviledge. 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. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Great Milton gardeners. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Give short shrift to any Great Milton gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.

Prior to work commencing give the gardener a clear picture of what you're expecting to be done. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case.

It never hurts to be polite to those working on your property, therefore you should always offer them a drink. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. It is useful to always have a friendly relationship with your gardener, so try to have regular chats with him/her, sharing ideas and opinions. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.
