Even if you only have a small garden, there are lots of jobs that need doing on a regular basis. These repeat jobs will have to be done a lot more often in springtime and summer, dying off to nothing by winter.

Getting your garden done by a professional isn't cheap and you are likely to be paying close to £20 per hour for the priviledge. It is unlikely that any gardener will be able to achieve very much in just one hour. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. When you take into consideration travelling time, getting equipment on and off the van, and going to the local tip with your garden waste, this is understandable.

It would not be normal for a genuine Braintree gardener to ask for payment in advance, so be wary if this happens to you. However, you might expect to pay a deposit for large jobs such as hard landscaping. When the gardener has finished working you may be asked for payment in cash, this is not at all unusual. Once you have paid your gardener get a receipt, so there are no disputes about unpaid bills.

Let the gardener know about your precise expectations before any work begins. Make the most of having a specialist on hand and follow their guidance with regards to your choice of plants and shrubs. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you. Unless of course you have a compost heap and want to keep it for that.

This doesn't mean you should stay there chattering all day though, you will be simply delaying their progress.
