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 lawnmower 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 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.
