There are plenty more jobs that might need doing for example cleaning driveways, decking installation, garden fencing and waste removal, most Lymington gardeners will also be willing to tackle these.

Expect to shell out something like £20 per hour for hiring the expertise of a professional gardener, the "bloke down the street" will be a bit cheaper. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. Bear in mind the fact that they have travelling time to and from your home, and they may need to visit the local dump to dispose or your garden waste.

Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. An exception can be made when a big project like patio laying is involved, and lots of materials have to be purchased. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.

Though usually a gardener will bring along a flask or bottle of water, it is nice to offer him/her a cup of tea while working hard on your garden. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness.
