The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "fellow down the street" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. Most Taunton gardeners will not want to do just one hours work. In order for them to do all the neccessary work they may need to put in at least two or three hours. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. More involved tasks like patio laying can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Don't forget to ask for a receipt irrespective of if you pay by cheque, card or cash, having proof of payment prevents later quarrels.
