A gardener came and did some work for us and tried to charge us double what it was worth. Should we deduct a percentage as a scammer fee?

    If you simply said "do this work" and didn't agree on a price, you're pretty much stuck.

    What you feel it's worth is irrelevant.

    You can stick to the original agreement.

    If you didn't get an estimate, your fault.

    If you really feel you're being overcharged, get some written estimates from other gardeners for the same project. Then you can hopefully have a civil discussion to dispute the bill and try and negotiate a better price by showing him that he is charging too much compared to other gardeners. If he refuses, you could give an unfavorable review on Yelp or Google.

    If you have a written quote then you can do things but if it was just a verbal agreement in ant small claim civil action it's your word against his.

    You should ONLY Pay him, what was agreed to in advance.
