Although there is no guarantee that a professional gardener will have any recognised horticultural qualifications, he/she will almost certainly have a great deal more gardening knowledge than that "geezer down the road" is going to have.

The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. With the arrival of spring the frequency with which such tasks need attending to increases. Typical jobs that Portree people need doing in their gardens include: weeding, hedge cutting, general tidying and mowing lawns. Jobs like laying patios, driveway cleaning, waste removal and repairing fences are also something most Portree gardeners will tackle.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. It is not just a case of working on your garden, they need to allow for travelling time and visits to the local rubbish tip.

Respectable gardeners in Portree would not dream of asking for payment up front for their services, therefore you should be very wary of anyone who makes this request. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as hard landscaping where considerable amounts of materials are needed. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Don't just leave them to get on with it, make sure your explain your exact requirements before they start. Your gardener is there to help you, so if you have any doubts about plants or their positioning, ask for advice. 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. Having a friendly rapport with your gardener is also important, so chat with them on a regular basis, discuss plans and bounce ideas off each other. Do not take this to the extreme however, and impede their work with constant babbling, they may become frustrated and not do a proper job.
