The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Ratby gardens are weeding, grass cutting, general cleaning and trimming hedges. More involved tasks might include: laying patios, cleaning driveways, repairing fences and waste removal.

While that "fellow 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). Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

Trustworthy Ratby gardeners will never ask for money in advance, so be distrustful of anybody who does. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. Whether you pay by cash, cheque or card, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.
