Top Gardening related questions

What does a gardener do?

A gardener is an expert in taking care of gardens, including plants, lawns, weeding, pest control, and yard work. They help with any gardening tasks from planting up new gardens to maintaining existing ones.

Why should I hire a professional gardener?

Hiring a professional gardener will give you the best result for your gardens, while saving you time. Your gardener will use the smart tools combined with years of experience to take the best care of your plants and gardens.

Do gardeners need any specific skills and qualifications?

Gardeners don’t need any specific qualifications, but they may have completed studies in horticulture or landscaping. However, your gardener will need good knowledge and experience in working with plants along with a reasonable level of physical fitness.

Do I need to supply my gardener with any equipment or supplies?

Most gardeners will bring their own equipment, including lawn mowers, whipper snippers, leaf blowers, and safety gear. But some gardeners prefer to use the equipment provided at your home. It’s best to check with your gardener to see what approach they normally take so you’re both prepared.

How long does a gardening service normally take?

Weekly gardening maintenance and lawn mowing on a regular sized suburban block may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. But if you need a major gardening service or you have a larger block, you can expect your gardener to need more time.

How much does it cost to hire a gardener?

You can expect to pay between $50-$125 when you hire a gardener through Airtasker. But the cost will depend on what tasks you need done (for example, the cost of garden design averages $150), your location, the size of your property, and how long the gardening is likely to take.

What do gardening services include?

Gardening services range from basic mowing 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 & mowing

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

Lawn mowing will start by clearing the area with a general garden tidy up. 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.

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 lawns with 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, seasons, natives vs introduced species, maintenance needs, and more. They’ll choose plants for your garden that will look at home in their surroundings, but also match the level of 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 lawn 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.
