There are plenty of jobs that require regular attention even if you've only got a small garden. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. Typically weeding, lawn mowing, general tidying and hedge trimming are the more common jobs that folk with gardens in Thornbury need done. Most Thornbury gardeners will also take on jobs like driveway cleaning, waste clearance, repairing fences and patio installation.

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. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. Most gardeners will have a minimum visit time of 2 hours. Don't forget, they have to get to and from your location, they have to unload and load their van and they may have to dispose of your waste which could mean a trip to the local tip.

Give short shrift to any Thornbury gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as patio laying. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. It is nice to have an expert on hand to help whip your garden into shape, make sure you exploit their knowledge to the full. Taking away all the garden waste such as hedge clippings and lawn trimmings may not be included in the service, therefore you should establish whether your gardener will do this or not. This garden waste can build up and at some point you are going to need to get rid of it.

It is customary to offer your gardener a hot or cold drink, though many bring their own refreshments. This sort of kindness is always very much appreciated. 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. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.

Thornbury Garden Design: A gardener who clips your hedge or mows your grass may not necessarily be good at designing a garden. Certain Thornbury gardeners welcome the challenge of designing but many are happier just to do your routine garden maintenance. Speak to your gardener and determine if this branch of gardening is something they are comfortable with. At the end of the day it might be necessary to locate a specialist.
