Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "fella down the road" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. When you take into consideration travelling time, getting equipment on and off the van, and going to the local tip with your garden waste, this is understandable.

Avoid any "gardener" who demands money up front, no trustworthy Thornton gardener will expect this. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as hard landscaping.
