Top Gardening related questions

You can expect to pay between $50-$125 when you hire a gardener through Airtasker. More complex gardening and landscaping services might cost more. Note that the cost will depend on what tasks you need to be done, your location, the size of your property, and how long the gardening will likely take. To better understand gardening prices, read our guide on gardening service costs and set the right pricing when booking a Tasker. 

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

Gardeners don’t need specific qualifications, but they may have completed studies in horticulture or landscaping. However, your gardener will need good knowledge, experience working with plants, and a reasonable physical fitness level, as some major garden services require extensive effort and time.

Most gardeners will bring their own equipment, including a lawn mower, 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 their approach, and if they have the right equipment, so you’re both prepared.

Weekly gardening maintenance and garden care on a regular-sized suburban block may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. But if you need a major gardening service or have a larger block, you can expect the work to take longer.

Gardeners are experts in caring for gardens, including plants, lawns, weeding, pest control, and yard work. They help with gardening work, from planting flowers and pruning trees to trimming overgrown grass, mulching, and maintaining outdoor areas. Some can be flexible and may help in gutter cleaning and landscape design outside of the usual gardening tasks.

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.
