Most people in Helston who have gardens will typically need tasks done like weeding, general cleaning, grass cutting and trimming hedges. More involved tasks might include: waste removal, cleaning driveways, fence repairs and patio installation.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. 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. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Payment in cash is not unusual for gardeners, though this will be requested after all work is completed and approved. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by card, cheque or cash, this negates later disputes.
