What do mulching services include?

Buying and spreading mulch doesn’t have to take a lot of time, money, and effort—especially when a mulching specialist is within arm’s reach! When you book a mulching service through Airtasker, you can expect your Tasker to take care of this labor-intensive yet crucial part of maintaining a garden. Here’s what a typical mulching service will include: 

Picking and buying the right mulch 

First, the Tasker may assess your garden and determine the kind of mulch it needs. Shredded bark is quite common and easy to apply, for example, but isn’t as nutritious for the soil. Household waste such as grass clippings, leaves, and compost is beneficial for the soil but isn’t great at preventing weeds. Shredded leaves and pine needles are also great for mulching. A thinner mulch made of grass clippings and straw may be easier to use and more suitable for vegetable gardens.  

The Tasker can also help you figure out how much mulch to buy based on the size of your yard, the thickness required, and your budget. You can provide the supply budget and send your Tasker to the garden center. Otherwise, you can book a mulch delivery service to get the materials sent straight to your doorstep.  

Preparing the garden beds

Once the supplies are ready, the Tasker starts clearing the flower and vegetable beds. They’ll tidy up and other debris, then scrape off the old mulch. Next, they’ll check if your beds require watering and an application of herbicide. This is the best time to get the moisture and weedkiller in since the mulch will help hold them. Then, the mulching specialist may uproot any weeds lingering in the garden. 

Spreading the mulch 

Now, it’s time to spread that mulch! The Tasker may put on a layer that’s around 1-4 inches thick—just enough to keep the moisture in and keep weeds out, but not so thick that no water reaches the soil. Ideally, the Tasker should avoid creating “mulch volcanoes,” which can become hotbeds for pests, rot, and diseases that can spread around your garden. 

Take note that for ornamentals, mulch should be at least 3 inches away from the base of each plant. But if you’re growing vegetables, the Tasker needs to apply mulch around the base to help them retain moisture and prevent weeds. 

Mulching trees

Tree mulching has many benefits, so you should consider booking a tree mulching service. A Tasker can spread mulch over the trees in your garden. This process protects young trees, provides much-needed nutrition, and reduces the threat of other plants and weeds. If you have an old or damaged tree, you can also hire a tree surgeon who can safely and correctly prune and treat trees.

Spreading mulch over garden

$700

Eltham VIC, Australia

21st Feb 2024

This is more of a labouring job rather than a gardening one - it’s about moving and spreading a lot of mulch over garden beds. We need mulch spread over a very large area of garden bed this weekend. The mulch will arrive in the driveway this Saturday morning (Feb 24) and we need the work done this Saturday and Sunday. To be clear, we will be providing and paying for the mulch, we need you to spread it. We will confirm the amount of mulch tomorrow but will be approx 9 cubic metres of mulch to be spread over the weekend. Because the job needs to be complete by Sunday night, we require a team of people. You will need a wheel burrow and all your own tools to do the job. As seen in the photos, the garden beds are on a slope. The photos provided are from the last time the job was done to indicate our goals, however there is no mulch left on the garden beds now. Type of gardening: Other Size of garden: 150m²-300m² Has green waste bin: Yes

Ricky worked like a machine through a hot day on a big job. He offered great advice, went out of his way to lend us tools and support for side projects, and didn’t stop working. The guy is crazy fit, great to work with, and extremely reliable. We are definitely going to work with him again.
