What do yard work services include?

Yard work covers a big number of tasks that may include everything from raking leaves to cleaning up debris to planting shrubs and flower borders! It might be challenging to decide what kind of tender loving care your yard needs. So here’s a rundown of the basic yard work services your chosen yard specialist can help you with:

Yard cleanup 

Of course, no one wants a messy yard because it can ruin your property’s perfectly-tailored appearance. Yard cleaning includes picking up trash and dirt such as animal feces, leaves, fallen branches, rocks, pine cones, and debris. A yard worker can do this task using trash bags, outdoor brooms, and rakes. Yard cleanup may also include removing old yard furniture and stubborn tree stumps that don’t match your yard’s landscape. 

Yard landscaping

Once your yard is clean, you can move on to other tasks such as landscaping and maintenance. Landscaping yard work includes mowing the lawn, trimming grass, preparing flower beds, watering the yard, mulching, composting, and fertilizing and pruning trees and shrubs. Yards also need regular irrigation, so make sure you have a working sprinkler system. It’s also important to keep insects, pests, and small rodents away from your yard, which you can get done on Airtasker as well.

 

Are you giving your yard a full makeover? You can also find Taskers skilled in paving patios and assembling outdoor furniture.  

Yard repair

Yards may have wooden fences, sheds, paths, patios, and walls that need repair, and your chosen Tasker can help with those too! If these important parts of your yard are beyond repair, they might need replacement. These heavy tasks will take more time to complete, so make sure to discuss the schedule with your chosen specialist. Always keep in mind that although there are yard work tasks you can do on your own, there are those that you should leave to the professionals. 

 

Yard cleanup, yard landscaping, and yard repair are usually done during clear weather, especially in the spring or summer. If you’re looking for more ways to beautify your home, Taskers can also help with staining your deck and installing a fence in your yard.

Need basic yard maintenance work for my rental - two small patches of grass in the front, and a small garden area in the back that has overgrown grass and needs to be mowed.

I need yard work

$195

Moonee Ponds VIC 3039, Australia

31st Jan 2021

I have a medium size yard which needs a tidy up. It is 6 x 7 metres and there is a patio which is 4 x 7 metres. There is artificial turf which needs to be removed and an umbrella and 3 pots which need to be moved from the garden to the patio (about 4 metres away). A trolley can be provided if necessary. I estimate that it would take no more than 2 hours. Depending on the hourly rate, I could also pay another 8 hours for a comprehensive cleanup of the side and front yard.
