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.

Gardening, weeding, mulching


Flaxton QLD, Australia

22nd Oct 2023

We are looking for someone to help fix up the gardens around our house, which includes: * Weeding (pulling and spraying as suitable) * Laying down weed mat (we supply it) * Laying down mulch (wood chip, you supply) * Trimming hedges, bushes and small trees * Taking away the green waste (whatever doesnt fit in our green bin) We will provide the weed mat, but would need you to supply the mulch, weed killer and any tools, so you'll probably need a trailer or something that you can transport the mulch in and take green waste away with. We will cover the costs of the mulch, your time and green waste removal, all of which is included in the supplied budget. We are flexible with time and I'm including some pictures. Most likely the full work will require multiple visits, so this task is specifically for the first section we want tackled, which is our front yard beside our driveway (what the pictures show). In the past it has generally taken two guys about 2 or 3 hours to work on this section. All the task details such as sizing and budget are for this first section specifically, but we are hoping to get the rest of our yard done over future tasks with you, which we can work out after the first job is complete. This first section should require about two cubic metres of mulch, but any you don't use can be left here for future tasks. Type of gardening: Weeding, Hedge trimming, Garden cleanup, Other Size of garden: Under 50m² Has green waste bin: Yes - Due date: Flexible

Fantastic work from both Francisco and Frederic! They arrived on time, had good communication and did a really good job in a short time. Even got it all done and mulch down before a surprise storm rolled in. Very polite and easy to work with, would recommend them to anyone.
