Small gardens need routine attention just like larger ones and the jobs may be much the same but on a smaller scale. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. Commonly general tidying, mowing lawns, trimming hedges and weeding are the gardening tasks that people in Long Riston need done. Jobs like waste removal, fence repairs, cleaning driveways and patio installation are also something most Long Riston gardeners will tackle.

Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "geezer down the road" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. You may find that your gardener will not be prepared to put in just an hours work. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

You should never expect to have to pay any gardener in advance. This rule may not apply with larger projects such as hard landscaping when payment of some money for materials is normal. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. Once you have paid your gardener get a receipt, so there are no disputes about unpaid bills.
