Let the gardener know about your precise expectations before any work begins. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this.

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

By chatting with your gardener you can start to establish a friendly relationship, this should enable you to immerse yourself in their ideas and soak up some of their gardening knowledge. Don't overdo this though, because constant nattering will slow down the whole process and may put your gardener off returning.
