The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. These repeat jobs will have to be done a lot more often in springtime and summer, dying off to nothing by winter. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in St Leonards gardens are grass cutting, general cleaning, weeding and hedge cutting. Most professional St Leonards gardeners will also help with decking installation, waste clearance, repairing fences and driveway cleaning.

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. 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.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. However, you might expect to pay a deposit for large jobs such as decking or fencing. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.
