An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. It might be the case that your chosen gardener will need more than an hour to whip your garden into shape. It's not uncommon for a gardener to request at least two hour minimum visit times. If you think that this is just to stretch the job out, think again. They have to travel to and from your home, they have to unload mowers and garden tools, and they will probably have to load your waste onto their trailer and take it to a nearby rubbish tip.

Be extremely suspicious of any Shalfleet gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as patio laying where considerable amounts of materials are needed.
