Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. These repeat jobs will have to be done a lot more often in springtime and summer, dying off to nothing by winter. The most common jobs that people with gardens need doing in Stoneyburn are hedge trimming, weeding, grass cutting and general tidying. Many quality gardeners in Stoneyburn will also be willing to assist with repairing fences, waste clearance, driveway cleaning and patio installation.

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. Usually gardeners will not be happy doing just one hours work. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Stoneyburn gardeners. 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.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. When the work has been completed to your satisfaction it would not be unusual for your gardener to ask for payment in cash. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. The removal of the waste that has been generated isn't something that all gardeners are prepared to do, make sure that yours does.

It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. Engage in some conversation with your gardener whenever you get the chance so that you can build a friendly relationship and benefit from their knowledge and ideas. Do not take this to the extreme however, and impede their work with constant babbling, they may become frustrated and not do a proper job.

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