General gardening and maintenance


Simon and his offsider worked very hard in quite a difficult farm garden. They got a lot of weeding, pruning, whipper-snippering and spraying done in the time given. They were both friendly and well equipped. They were also patient with the noisy dog. Many thanks.

What can you expect from gardening services?

Garden services range from basic gardening needs and maintenance to full landscape gardening help. Here are some of the most common gardening services near you and what you can expect from each when you hire a gardener:

Garden maintenance & lawn care

Regular garden maintenance is important to keep your property neat, under control, and looking its best. Whether you need a one-off tidy-up, garden maintenance while you’re away on holiday, or regular upkeep of your backyard, a gardener can help.

Lawn mowing will start by clearing the area with a general garden tidy-up and some gutter cleaning. Then your gardener will mow all grass areas, including your front and back lawn and footpath. Then, they’ll use the brushcutter to whipper snip any edges. Gardeners can also prune your trees, trim your hedges, and rake up leaves and debris. With professional garden service, you'll have no problem keeping your garden clean. 

Weeding & pest control

Gardens can struggle to flourish thanks to problems like weeds and pests that eat or crowd out your plants and lawn. Your local gardeners can help by weeding your lawn by hand or spraying herbicides that kill the weeds without affecting the type of grass you’re growing.

Your gardener will also work to prevent weeds in the future by mulching around plants over a layer of newspaper or cardboard so weeds can’t go through. Your gardener will treat unwanted pests using pesticides, tailoring the treatment to keep your home and garden free from spiders, caterpillars, cockroaches, and ants.

Garden planting

Need to fill out your garden bed or plant up a new section in your garden? Your gardener can help choose the right plants that will grow well in your garden. They’ll consider factors like optimum plant positioning, sunlight levels, moisture levels and rainfall, the right fertilisers, seasons, native vs. introduced species, maintenance needs, and more. They’ll choose plants for your garden that suit your landscape design but match the care and maintenance you (or your gardener) can provide.

Lawn restoration

If your lawn’s been overrun by weeds or it’s looking a bit dead or bare in patches, your gardener can help with lawn restoration, too. They can level out any holes, aerate to encourage healthy growth, add nutrients, spread the correct seed variety, and adjust the pH of your soil.

They’ll choose the right variety of lawns to lay turf or seed your lawn. Finally, they’ll water it all in, ensuring you know proper lawn care measures between visits, or set up irrigation for daily automatic watering.

Farm help - clearing shrubs and pruning


Apollo Bay VIC, Australia

28th Jul 2023

Our property is in the hills behind Apollo Bay. There's about 400m of fence line which is quite overgrown. Hoping to find someone who is interested in completing this labour. Can be very flexible. Probably preferable to work on the days that are less rainy! Estimate there's about 5 full days of work to be done clearing the perimeter fence. Happy with quote or hourly. We have found an electric chainsaw to be effective. We may be able to lend our Stihl electric chainsaw. Some tools and gear available, though preferable if you BYO. Thanks - Due date: Flexible
