The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. As you can imagine the need for this regular maintenance is more necessary in spring and summer. Commonly general tidying, grass cutting, trimming hedges and weeding are the gardening tasks that people in Newton Stewart need done. Jobs like garden fencing, driveway cleaning, waste removal and laying patios are also something most Newton Stewart gardeners will tackle.

While that "fella down the road" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). You may find that your gardener will not be prepared to put in just an hours work. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

It would not be normal for a genuine Newton Stewart gardener to ask for payment in advance, so be wary if this happens to you. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Don't forget to ask for a receipt irrespective of if you pay by cash, card or cheque, having proof of payment prevents later quarrels.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. It is nice to have an expert on hand to help whip your garden into shape, make sure you exploit their knowledge to the full. Not all gardeners like to take away the waste and lawn clippings, so check that yours does. When they have done a good job of tidying your garden they should really take away the rubbish.

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. Engage in some conversation with your gardener whenever you get the chance so that you can build a friendly relationship and benefit from their knowledge and ideas. In doing this, don't prevent them from getting on with their work, because this will make the job take longer and cost you more money in the long run.
