The routine jobs which need doing in the garden are likely to be much the same regardless whether your garden is small or big. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Winchester gardens are hedge cutting, general cleaning, weeding and grass cutting. Most decent gardeners in Winchester will tackle other jobs such as driveway cleaning, waste removal, garden fencing and laying patios.

Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. The average gardener in Winchester will not be satisfied with doing your garden in one hour sessions. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Winchester gardeners. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

It is not the norm for Winchester gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Insist on getting a receipt especially where cash is involved, this will avoid any disputes about unpaid work later on.

Gardening tends to generate a lot of waste, so verify that your gardener is going to dispose of this when they are finished.

Gardeners are used to providing their own refreshments, but this shouldn't stop you from offering them a cup of tea or even a cold drink on a hot summer's day. A gardener will always be appreciative of such kindness and will work even harder to show this gratitude.
