Garden Maintenance Pricing
How much should you expect to pay a gardener for regular or one-off garden maintenance?
The simple answer is 'the same as any other tradesman'. Although you may not uses a plumber or electrician every week, a gardeners expenses are very high and the work is very labour intensive.
Compare gardeners fairly - ask about insurance, tools, experience, licenses and qualifications
What needs to be done?
Think about what you really need - maintenance or 'manicure'. A 'manicured' garden will need regular visits so a gardener will likely charge by the hour and involve detailed work. Standard regular maintenance (mowing lawns, trimming hedges) will normally be charged at a fixed price. (see our price plans below) A fixed price helps you budget and is an efficient way to keep your garden under control.
Doing the right job at the right time of the year will help you spread the cost and keep your garden healthy and looking great.
Beware of false economy
The less a gardener charges the longer he/she is likely to take to do the job - after all, what incentive do they have to hurry? Are they insured? Are they qualified? Do they have their own tools? If they use your tools are you insured if they hurt themselves? If the gardener offers you nothing but labour then the minimum wage in the UK is not an effective incentive for the gardener to turn up regularly, maintain tools and offer advice. Cheap labourers soon give up self-employment and return to employed work - especially during the winter months. Most legitimate traders aim to earn a upwards of £150 a day - that's £15 - £30 per hour.
