There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. Among the most common jobs needing to be done in Sixpenny Handley gardens are grass cutting, hedge pruning, weeding and general tidying. Most professional Sixpenny Handley gardeners will also help with repairing fences, cleaning driveways, laying patios and waste removal.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "fellow down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. 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.

Payment in advance is not something that gardeners usually ask for, so be cautious if your gardener requires this. Big projects such as patio laying may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. Don't forget to ask for a receipt irrespective of if you pay by card, cheque or cash, having proof of payment prevents later quarrels.

In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help.
