The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. With the arrival of spring the frequency with which such tasks need attending to increases. Typical jobs that Portishead people need doing in their gardens include: hedge pruning, lawn mowing, general tidying and weeding. Most professional Portishead gardeners will also help with waste clearance, repairing fences, patio installation and driveway cleaning.

While that "geezer 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). One hours work is not enough to make much impression on your garden, so you should reckon on them needing to spend more time than this. Certain Portishead gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. 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.

Give short shrift to any Portishead gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. An exception might be when a large job is involved such as decking installation when some money up front may be asked for. Once your garden is finished you should expect to be asked for payment in cash, because most gardeners prefer this. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Let the gardener know about your precise expectations before any work begins. Your gardener will be there to give you advice and guidance on any aspect of your garden, so make the most of his/her knowledge. Taking away all the garden waste such as hedge clippings and lawn trimmings may not be included in the service, therefore you should establish whether your gardener will do this or not.

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. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. In order to build a friendly rapport with your gardener and to pick their brains for gardening tips, go out for a natter from time to time. It is not however a good idea to pester them constantly which will have the effect of annoying them and slowing the work down.
