These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter.

Tasks such as cleaning driveways, repairing fences, laying patios and waste removal are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.

Expect to shell out something like £20 per hour for hiring the expertise of a professional gardener, the "geezer down the street" will be a bit cheaper. It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. It's not uncommon for a gardener to request at least two hour minimum visit times. It is not just a case of working on your garden, they need to allow for travelling time and visits to the local rubbish tip.

Respectable gardeners in Thame would not dream of asking for payment up front for their services, therefore you should be very wary of anyone who makes this request. Once your garden is finished you should expect to be asked for payment in cash, because most gardeners prefer this. Be certain to get a receipt from your gardener whether you pay him/her by credit card, cheque or cash.
