What does garden maintenance include?

Garden maintenance can encompass a wide range of tasks to ensure your garden looks its best throughout the year. Services typically include:

  • Lawn mowing and edging for a neat appearance.
  • Weeding to keep flower beds and lawns clear of unwanted plants.
  • Trimming and pruning of shrubs, hedges, and trees to encourage healthy growth and shape.
  • Garden cleared of leaves and debris, particularly important in autumn.
  • For gardens with fruit trees or bushes, proper pruning is essential.
  • Seasonal planting of bedding plants and bulbs to keep the garden vibrant.
  • Application of top dressing and mulching to protect and nourish the soil.
  • Lawn treatments and repairs to address any issues and promote lush growth.

Depending on your garden’s specific needs, garden maintenance can also include more specialised tasks such as large hedge cutting, fence and garden wall maintenance, and tree management.

What do gardeners charge per hour?

While specific costs can vary, here’s a general guide to help you budget:

  • Basic Lawn Care and Maintenance: Starting from £15 to £30 per hour
  • Professional Gardening Services: Ranging from £20 to £50 per hour, depending on the complexity and specialisation of the work

For accurate pricing tailored to your garden’s specific needs, it’s best to obtain quotes from several local garden maintenance services. This approach allows you to compare rates and find the best fit for your budget and garden care requirements.

How do I know if the job has been done well?

A well-maintained garden should exhibit:

  • Evenly mowed lawns with neat edges.
  • Absence of visible weeds in beds and lawns.
  • Healthy, correctly pruned plants according to their species requirements.
  • Overall tidiness, including managed fences and larger trees, if applicable.

At Rated People, you can rely on reviews from other homeowners to gauge the quality of work provided by our garden maintenance specialists. Our local gardeners guide also offers insights into essential questions to ask your gardener to ensure your expectations are met.

Other garden maintenance FAQs

How often should a gardener come?

The frequency of garden maintenance visits depends on your garden’s size and requirements. Some gardens may only need monthly visits, while others might benefit from weekly attention.

Do gardeners bring their own lawnmowers?

Most professional gardeners will bring their own equipment, including lawnmowers, to each job. However, this should be confirmed with your gardener beforehand.

How much do gardeners charge for weeding?

Charges for weeding can vary depending on the garden’s size and the weeding extent required. This task is typically included in the gardener’s hourly rate, but specific projects may be quoted separately.

Brian responded very quickly after I posted for trees to be loped & cut back he and Mike came out today assessed the job and gave a very reasonable quote, once we agreed he started the job there & then - no messing no fuss just got stuck in & got the job done. A fair & friendly pair. When they had finished for the day they cleared up all the branches & mess & took it away with them. I would highly recommend B&M Tree & Gardening Services and would not hesitate to have them work in my garden again.

Ashley is a pleasant and helpful young man who showed consideration for us as older customers. The work was excellent and there was nothing remaining for us to clear. He also gave us advice , and kept checking to see if we were happy with the way he carried out the pruning of the shrubs to check if we wanted to change the overall shape. We fully recommend Ashley to anyone requiring any garden work.
