Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "fellow down the road" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. 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 must take into account travelling time, loading and unloading equipment and visits to the tip with your waste.

Trustworthy Kilmarnock gardeners will never ask for money in advance, so be distrustful of anybody who does.
