Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. Typically people with gardens in Thame need jobs done like lawn mowing, general cleaning, weeding and hedge pruning. More involved tasks might include: driveway cleaning, repairing fences, laying patios and waste clearance.

Good gardeners don't come cheap, a professional gardener is likely to charge you £20 per hour or more, while that "bloke down the street" might do it for £10 to £12 per hour. You should anticipate your gardener needing more time than one hour is he/she is to get your garden looking good again. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. Travel to and away from your home, bringing in and taking away mowers and tools, and the responsible disposal of your waste all have to be factored in.

Be extremely suspicious of any Thame gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Giving a clear understanding of just what needs doing before work begins, will better help your gardener meet your expectations. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. You really do not want to be stuck with a huge mound of garden waste that is difficult to dispose of.
