Thanks for that.


No, problem.

I love gardening, I would have probably done it for you.

If you were nearer to me.

Should I be paying this amount if its cash in hand?

Not to someone whose not working officially of course.

I would ring them numbers and ask them to give you a quote.

BB Whenever I need a workman etc I put an advert on Gumtree stating what I am willing to pay and what I want done - that way anyone that replies will be aware of the pay.

Most gardeners and cleaners and handymen etc work cash in hand but keep accounts and pay taxes etc.
Ask round locally and see what the going rate is and if someone can recommend to you, as well as checking out the local adverts. If you are an older or disabled person you might well get some help from the community e.g. local school pupils often need to have done some community service.

Off hand I would say that a properly qualifed gardener would want £20 an hour but a lot less for a general helper.

£20 a week with the gardners that come every 2 weeks come rain or shine!

but im with a guy my next door neigbour has, hes a tenner and is unreliable as heck, but only comes when needed...so its the cheap option then paying for gardening in the winter months!

My cousin is a landscape gardener and doesnt charge by the hour just by the job, some work may only take the same time as others but is a lot more gruelling, I disagree with paying for labour hourly as how do you know they are not going to stretch the job out? this is why he charges per the job, what he quotes is what you pay.

make sure any quotes you get are in writing and are quotes not estimates.
