Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis.

As a rule lawn mowing, hedge pruning, weeding and general cleaning are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like decking installation, garden fencing, waste removal and driveway cleaning

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. The majority will generally prefer to spend 2 to 3 hours on each visit. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.
