The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. Among the most common jobs needing to be done in Workington gardens are lawn mowing, general cleaning, weeding and trimming hedges. It isn't unusual for professional Workington gardeners to help you out with repairing fences, cleaning driveways, waste removal and decking installation.

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. Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. Certain Workington gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as garden fencing where considerable amounts of materials are needed. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.

A list of required tasks will help your gardener to plan his/her day, clearly lay out you exact requirements at the start. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. Grass cuttings and hedge clippings can be a pain to get rid of, so make certain that your gardener includes the disposal of these as part of the service. When they have done a good job of tidying your garden they should really take away the rubbish.

It is polite to offer your gardener a drink or two throughout the day, they can build up quite a thirst with all that hard graft. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. 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. 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.
