Large and small gardens alike need routine maintenance with various jobs that need attending to. Such jobs require even more attention during spring and summer when rain and heat generates increased growth. As a rule trimming hedges, lawn mowing, general cleaning and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as fence repairs, cleaning driveways, waste removal and decking installation.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "fella down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. Some gardeners may even insist on a minimum slot of two or three hours. You must take into account travelling time, loading and unloading equipment and visits to the tip with your waste.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. Exceptions can be made when large jobs like landscaping are involved, some money up front might then be appropriate. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

It pays to be thoughtful and supplying your gardener with a drink or two will help his/her day along. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness.
