There are plenty of jobs that require regular attention even if you've only got a small garden. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Stockport require are trimming hedges, general tidying, weeding and lawn mowing. Tasks such as driveway cleaning, repairing fences, waste removal and decking installation are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "fella down the street" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. Depending on the state of your garden it is likely that your gardener will need more than just one hour to make an impression. It would not be that unusual for a gardener to have a minimum visit time of 2 to 3 hours. You must take into account travelling time, loading and unloading equipment and visits to the tip with your waste.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. Having said that, a deposit for materials may be required for bigger projects like decking installation. After the completion of your garden it would not be at all uncommon for your gardener to ask to be paid in cash. You don't want any arguments about payment in the future, so be sure to get a receipt.
