In order to make much difference to your garden, most gardeners will need to invest more than an hour of hard graft. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

It would not be normal for a genuine Braintree gardener to ask for payment in advance, so be wary if this happens to you. An exception can be made when a big project like garden fencing is involved, and lots of materials have to be purchased.
