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.

Garden cleanup and weeding


Hawthorn VIC, Australia

4th Dec 2020

I need a garden clean up - mainly weeding in two large garden beds in the backyard (the weeds here are fairly tough), and some lighter weeding in a front garden as well (about 10 x 2m). I also have some creeper vines coming from my neighbours fence that I'd like removed, this part would only take 10 mins or so. Assuming it's a 2 hour job. I have two large green bins for garden waste which should be enough but you may need one other bag.

Weeding and removal of weed


Doncaster, Victoria, Australia

22nd Nov 2020

We have a land with an incomplete building on it and has been sitting there for a while. Fire season is here and our council wants us to get it cleaned up. So we need the weeds cut down and removed to minimize fire risk. Spraying some weed killer will be nice too to prevent it from growing back. Total area i would say is around 500sqm possibly. Front yard and back yard. Backyard can be accessed from the side of house and there is a small step down the retaining wall as the site is sloping down to the back. So could be hard to get lawnmower to the backyard unless it's a small and light one. The picture shows the ground floor of the home. There is a basement under it as well. It's a building site so just watch your step.

Job well done again. Thank you very much mate. Appreciate it.

Hi all, We're looking for somebody to come to clear up our garden areas before Friday and spread mulch over those areas. Bonus points if you're able to kill weeds. We also have some newly grown gumtrees that need to be removed. I doubt an arborist will need to be used for this job.
