Top Garden Maintenance related questions

Why is garden maintenance important?

Garden maintenance is important for more than just appearances. Regular lawn mowing, mulching and pruning of trees and bushes promotes healthy growth, while weed control prevents unwanted intruders from taking your plants' water and nutrients. Garden maintenance services help your garden to thrive all year round.

How often should grass be cut?

Mowing the lawn is basic garden maintenance that should be done as often as possible to keep the grass looking healthy, to prevent thatching and to keep out weeds and pests. Depending on the type of grass you have, it should ideally be cut every 2 to 4 weeks. Some fast-growing turf can benefit from being cut weekly in the spring and summer.

Do landscapers need to be licensed?

Basic garden maintenance activities such as lawn mowing and pruning don't normally require a licence, but if you're arranging more extensive landscaping work, you may need a licensed landscaper. This varies by state and territory and depends on the size or value of the project.

Do I need to be at home?

Garden maintenance work can be carried out when you're not at home, if you allow your contractor access to your garden. It's recommended that you or someone else is present on the first occasion so you can discuss any specific requirements.

Is garden maintenance dependent on the weather?

Yes. Whether it's mowing a lawn, removing weeds or other activities, maintenance will be affected by adverse conditions such as heavy rain or extreme heat. This may require rescheduling the service for a more suitable time. Light rainfall will not usually require garden maintenance to be cancelled.

How much does garden maintenance cost?

The cost will depend on what garden maintenance services you need, how large your garden is and other factors. The average cost of garden maintenance on Airtasker is between $65 and $150. Find out more in our price guide.

What do garden maintenance workers do?

A garden maintenance contract can be negotiated on a regular or one-off basis and can be customised to include the exact gardening services you need, when you need them. 


Common tasks requested on Airtasker include lawn mowing and restoration, tree pruning, hedge trimming, weeding, irrigation and other services to help your front and back gardens flourish.


Some of the most in demand garden maintenance activities are:

Lawn mowing and edging

Different types of grass turf have different maintenance requirements at different times of the year, and this will affect how often lawn mowing is recommended for you – weekly, fortnightly or monthly. If you have a large garden, a ride-on lawn mower will get the job done faster than a walk-behind mower. Garden maintenance professionals will also include a perimeter cut for a neat finish.

Pruning and hedge trimming

Trees, bushes and hedges around your garden don't need to be trimmed as often as a lawn does, but pruning and hedge trimming are recommended every 6 to 12 months to improve the look of your property. Pruning fruit trees every year will also encourage them to grow more fruit.

Weed control

Without regular maintenance, weeds can overrun your lawn and deprive your plants of vital nutrients. This can be especially damaging for flower beds and vegetable patches. Weeding services combine hand pulling with eco-friendly herbicides to remove and destroy weeds and prevent them from invading again.

Mulching

Mulching has many benefits for a garden. Adding organic material to your soil helps it to retain moisture for longer without the need for additional watering, makes the soil more fertile for growing plants and vegetables and prevents weeds from growing. Mulching is recommended once or twice per year.
