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.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as hard landscaping where considerable amounts of materials are needed. Many Sevenoaks gardeners favour payment in cash, very few will take cards, they will only ask after you have approved their work. Insist on getting a receipt especially where cash is involved, this will avoid any disputes about unpaid work later on.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. It isn't always easy for you to know which plants will grow best in your garden, the advice of your gardener will be invaluable. Ensure that the gardener will take away lawn cuttings, weeds and twigs afterwards, not all do this.
