There are plenty of jobs that require regular attention even if you've only got a small garden. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. While the jobs that people in Penicuik need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are general cleaning, trimming hedges, weeding and mowing lawns. Tasks such as patio installation, fence repairs, driveway cleaning and waste removal are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "geezer down the street" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. It might be the case that your chosen gardener will need more than an hour to whip your garden into shape. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. 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.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Paying a deposit for materials might be appropriate for bigger jobs like garden fencing. Of course gardeners often ask for payment in cash after the work is completed. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by cheque, cash or card, this negates later disputes.
