Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. It is essential to get these jobs done even more frequently when spring and then summer arrives. In general general cleaning, weeding, hedge trimming and mowing lawns are the common jobs that people in Watford need doing in their gardens. Jobs like patio installation, waste clearance, cleaning driveways and repairing fences are also something most Watford gardeners will tackle.

Don't expect to get a decent gardener for peanuts, while that "bloke down the street" might only ask for £10 to £12 per hour, you're unlikely to get a professional for much less than £20 an hour. One hours work is not enough to make much impression on your garden, so you should reckon on them needing to spend more time than this. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. 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.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Ensure you have some cash to hand on gardening day because most gardeners prefer this kind of payment when they have finished. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by cheque, cash or card, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. Being left with large quantities of garden waste is something that you need to avoid.

Gardening makes you thirsty so keep yours supplied with drinks if you're at home. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. 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.
