Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. As you can imagine the need for this regular maintenance is more necessary in spring and summer. The list of the most common gardening jobs will come as no surprise and includes the likes of hedge cutting, lawn mowing, weeding and general tidying. Additional tasks like waste removal, laying patios, cleaning driveways and fence repairs will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.

An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. It is unlikely that any gardener will be able to achieve very much in just one hour. Some gardeners may even insist on a minimum slot of two or three hours. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

Respectable gardeners in Killearn would not dream of asking for payment up front for their services, therefore you should be very wary of anyone who makes this request. More involved tasks like garden fencing can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. Don't forget to ask for a receipt irrespective of if you pay by cash, card or cheque, having proof of payment prevents later quarrels.

Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful.

Pop out for a chat with your gardener from time to time so you can benefit from their ideas and keep a friendly rapport. It is not however a good idea to pester them constantly which will have the effect of annoying them and slowing the work down.
