Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. Typical jobs that Harrow people need doing in their gardens include: trimming hedges, lawn mowing, weeding and general cleaning. Bigger tasks such as cleaning driveways, garden fencing, waste clearance and decking installation can also be handled by the majority of gardeners.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. The average gardener in Harrow will not be satisfied with doing your garden in one hour sessions. Most gardeners will have a minimum visit time of 2 hours. They have to allow for other things such as disposing of your garden waste at the local rubbish tip, unloading tools and equipment, and actually getting to and from your home.

Avoid any "gardener" who demands money up front, no trustworthy Harrow gardener will expect this. Large projects like landscaping would be an exception to this rule, when a deposit for materials will be requested. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.

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. The layout of your garden is something any decent gardener will be able to help you with, they will know which plants perform best where, don't be scared to ask for guidance. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. Give preference to gardeners who agree to take away all the garden waste.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. A gardener will always be appreciative of such kindness and will work even harder to show this gratitude. 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. Don't stand there all day twittering on however, which only results in a frustrated gardener and an incomplete garden.
