There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. The warmth of spring and summer increases the frequency with which these jobs need to be done. The commonest gardening jobs that folk in Thorrington need doing are weeding, hedge trimming, general tidying and grass cutting. Other jobs like waste clearance, driveway cleaning, patio installation and repairing fences are also within most gardeners remit.

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. You may find that your gardener will not be prepared to put in just an hours work. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. They have to allow for other things such as disposing of your garden waste at the local rubbish tip, unloading tools and equipment, and actually getting to and from your home.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. This rule may not apply with larger projects such as decking or fencing when payment of some money for materials is normal. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by cheque, card or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. Always ask your gardener for advice, he or she will know exactly what plants are best suited to your garden conditions. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case. You don't want your garden cluttered with garden waste that is difficult to get rid of.

Spare a thought for your gardener toiling away on your property with no facilities at hand. Offer them the use of your toilet and perhaps provide a drink. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. 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.
