The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. Typically weeding, grass cutting, hedge trimming and general tidying are the more common jobs that folk with gardens in Thorpe-le-Soken need done. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as laying patios, cleaning driveways, repairing fences and waste removal.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "guy down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. 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. Some gardeners may even insist on a minimum slot of two or three hours. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Any gardener who asks for payment in advance should raise your suspicions, you want to see results before forking out any money. This rule may not apply with larger projects such as garden fencing when payment of some money for materials is normal. Of course gardeners often ask for payment in cash after the work is completed. Make sure that you get a receipt, no matter what type of payment you agree on, this will avoid arguments down the line.

Be clear what your requirements are before the gardener begins work, have a list of jobs that need doing. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you.

Working in the garden can get cold in winter and hot in summer, so spare a thought for your gardener and keep him/her supplied with a drink. Considerations like this will always be appreciated and will often result in a better standard of work. By having a quick chat with your gardener every once in a while, you can pick up some tips while also building a friendly rapport. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.
