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. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. Don't forget, they have to get to and from your location, they have to unload and load their van and they may have to dispose of your waste which could mean a trip to the local tip.

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 garden fencing may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Payment in cash is not unusual for gardeners, though this will be requested after all work is completed and approved. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
