There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. While the jobs that people in Scone need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are general cleaning, grass cutting, hedge trimming and weeding. Bigger tasks such as repairing fences, laying patios, driveway cleaning and waste removal can also be handled by the majority of gardeners.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "geezer down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. This is not excessive if you consider that they have to drive to your house and back and might need to take your waste to the local rubbish tip, which could be miles away.

Avoid any "gardener" who demands money up front, no trustworthy Scone gardener will expect this. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Prior to work commencing give the gardener a clear picture of what you're expecting to be done. Make the most of having a specialist on hand and follow their guidance with regards to your choice of plants and shrubs. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this. You want to avoid being left with large quantities of garden waste that you cannot get shot of.

It is customary to offer your gardener a hot or cold drink, though many bring their own refreshments. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. Don't be afraid to wander out and have a chat with your gardener when circumstances permit, this will help build a friendly connection with the gardener and encourage a sharing of ideas. This does not mean you should pester them with constant wittering which will simply hinter them and slow down the work rate.

Scone Garden Design: Where total garden re-designs are concerned it is a case of "suck it and see".
