Whether your garden is large or small, there will always be jobs that need attending to on a routine basis. Such jobs require even more attention during spring and summer when rain and heat generates increased growth.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. More involved tasks like hard landscaping can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
