Whether your garden is large or small, there will always be jobs that need attending to on a routine basis. More frequent visits will be necessary in the spring and summertime and maybe none at all during the wintertime. Typically people with gardens in Great Waltham need jobs done like mowing lawns, general tidying, hedge trimming and weeding. Most Great Waltham gardeners will also take on jobs like waste clearance, fence repairs, cleaning driveways and laying patios.

While that "chap down the street" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. The majority will generally prefer to spend 2 to 3 hours on each visit. When you take into consideration travelling time, getting equipment on and off the van, and going to the local tip with your garden waste, this is understandable.

It is not the norm for Great Waltham gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. An exception might be when a large job is involved such as garden fencing when some money up front may be asked for. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. To avoid the possibility of disputes in the future always ask your gardener for a receipt.
