Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. People with gardens in Kirkconnel most often want jobs done like grass cutting, general tidying, weeding and trimming hedges. There are plenty more jobs that might need doing for example driveway cleaning, waste removal, laying patios and repairing fences, most Kirkconnel gardeners will also be willing to tackle these.

Don't expect to get a decent gardener for peanuts, while that "fella down the street" might only ask for £10 to £12 per hour, you're unlikely to get a professional for much less than £20 an hour. Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. It's not uncommon for a gardener to request at least two hour minimum visit times. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Payment in advance is not something that gardeners usually ask for, so be cautious if your gardener requires this. An exception to this rule of thumb would be with more extensive tasks for example landscaping when being asked for a deposit for materials is quite normal. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Whether you pay by cheque, card or cash, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness.
