Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. More frequent visits will be necessary in the spring and summertime and maybe none at all during the wintertime. As a rule weeding, grass cutting, general cleaning and hedge trimming are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Other jobs that professional gardeners will usually handle include: waste removal, garden fencing, driveway cleaning and decking installation.

Decent gardeners will come at a premium, so don't expect them to work for peanuts. Charges generally start at approximately twenty pounds per hour. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. Bear in mind the fact that they have travelling time to and from your home, and they may need to visit the local dump to dispose or your garden waste.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Having said that, a deposit for materials may be required for bigger projects like decking installation. Once your garden is finished you should expect to be asked for payment in cash, because most gardeners prefer this. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by cheque, card or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

Before the gardener gets to work on your garden make sure he or she is clear about your requirements, a list of expected tasks might help. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this. It is unfair to leave you with piles of garden waste.

It is customary to offer your gardener a hot or cold drink, though many bring their own refreshments. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. It helps to keep things friendly, so popping out for a chat every now and again will help to do this and also give you the chance to get some tips from your gardener. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.
