Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are grass cutting, hedge pruning, general cleaning and weeding. Many quality gardeners in Preston will also be willing to assist with cleaning driveways, waste removal, patio installation and repairing fences.

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. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. When you consider things like travel, tool unloading and re-loading, and taking your waste to the tip this is easy to understand.

Be extremely suspicious of any Preston gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Once you have paid your gardener get a receipt, so there are no disputes about unpaid bills.

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. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this.

Though usually a gardener will bring along a flask or bottle of water, it is nice to offer him/her a cup of tea while working hard on your garden. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. Building a friendly relationship with your gardener is always a good idea, it enables you to soak up a little of their knowledge and ideas. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.
