The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. Typically people with gardens in Wantage need jobs done like hedge trimming, general cleaning, grass cutting and weeding. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like waste clearance, fence repairs, cleaning driveways and laying patios

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "fellow down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. It's not uncommon for a gardener to request at least two hour minimum visit times. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Once your garden is finished you should expect to be asked for payment in cash, because most gardeners prefer this. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.
