Routine maintenance is the key with all gardens, whether small or large, with a seemingly endless list of jobs to do. Such routine jobs will need attention more frequently at certain times of the year, in particular spring and summer. As a rule hedge trimming, general tidying, mowing lawns and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Many quality gardeners in Hastings will also be willing to assist with repairing fences, driveway cleaning, waste clearance and decking installation.

While that "geezer down the road" 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). Usually gardeners will not be happy doing just one hours work. Most gardeners will have a minimum visit time of 2 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.

Any gardener who asks for payment in advance should raise your suspicions, you want to see results before forking out any money. Big projects such as patio laying may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Many Hastings gardeners favour payment in cash, very few will take cards, they will only ask after you have approved their work. Whether you pay by cheque, cash or card, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.

Right from the start and before any work commences, ensure your gardener has a clear understanding of exactly what needs doing. 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. Getting rid of your lawn trimmings and hedge clippings won't always be part of the service so ensure that in your case it is.

It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. Gardeners are appreciative of gestures like this and will no doubt reward you by doing the best possible job. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. Don't overdo this though, because constant nattering will slow down the whole process and may put your gardener off returning.
