Even if you've got a small garden, there will be various tasks that require attention in a routine manner. As you can imagine the need for this regular maintenance is more necessary in spring and summer. Typical jobs that Reading people need doing in their gardens include: weeding, general tidying, mowing lawns and hedge cutting. Other jobs like waste removal, patio installation, cleaning driveways and repairing fences are also within most gardeners remit.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "fella down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. Some gardeners may even insist on a minimum slot of two or three hours. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Give short shrift to any Reading gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. Having said that, a deposit for materials may be required for bigger projects like landscaping. After the completion of your garden it would not be at all uncommon for your gardener to ask to be paid in cash. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by cheque, cash or card, this negates later disputes.
