Those monthly, fortnightly or even weekly gardening jobs are often necessary even if your garden is small. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently.

Most professional New Longton gardeners will also help with repairing fences, waste removal, cleaning driveways and laying patios.

How much you pay depends on who you hire, the hourly rate for a professional gardener will be at least £20, while you might get away with £10 - £15 if you take a chance on that "fellow down the road". Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Exceptions can be made when large jobs like decking or fencing 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. Make sure that you get a receipt, no matter what type of payment you agree on, this will avoid arguments down the line.
