Those monthly, fortnightly or even weekly gardening jobs are often necessary even if your garden is small. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. The most common jobs that people with gardens need doing in Oughtibridge are trimming hedges, grass cutting, general tidying and weeding. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with laying patios, garden fencing, driveway cleaning and waste clearance.

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. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. If you think that this is just to stretch the job out, think again. They have to travel to and from your home, they have to unload mowers and garden tools, and they will probably have to load your waste onto their trailer and take it to a nearby rubbish tip.

It is not the norm for Oughtibridge gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Before the gardener gets to work on your garden make sure he or she is clear about your requirements, a list of expected tasks might help. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Not all gardeners like to take away the waste and lawn clippings, so check that yours does. Unless you need it for your compost heap in which case you might want to keep it.

While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. These acts of kindness can go a long way and may even result in a better quality of job. Go out and talk to your gardener now and again to keep a friendly rapport going and also to pick their brains. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.
