Lawn mowing and garden maintenance


I'd definitely recommend Brian. Communication was very easy and he was very prompt in replying to my messages. Brian and his equally hard-working son Fraser arrived right on time and worked conscientiously until I was happy with the result. Their knowledge and work ethic was impressive. Thanks guys!

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.

Home maintenance, gardening and routine checkup in Mentone VIC


Mentone VIC, Australia

22nd Jan 2023

Rate is per hour for a local person Please read through before submitting your offer I’m looking for someone (local) to keep my garden tidy, pool clean, and to keep an eye on my property which has regular short term guests who usually stay from a few days, up to a week or two When a guest checks out I have professional cleaners come and clean the house from top to bottom, but some guests like to move things around inside, or take them away which the cleaners tend to miss Guests very occasionally have too much rubbish which needs to be taken to my warehouse bins in Cheltenham (24/7) which is a 7 minute drive from the house The garden is quite manageable. There is some mowing, weeding, raking, and pruning required. There are two large green waste bins. I also have all the best Makita cordless equipment to use for the job or bring your own – up to you. This needs to be done every 2 weeks in spring and summer (usually at the end of every stay for keeping the garden tidy – raking for example) and a little less during the cooler months The pool just needs the filter emptied of leaves every 10 to 14 days depending on the. The cleaners place the robot in the pool and take it out again, but it’s good to have someone just check its filter is emptied and washed out properly and to do this if someone is staying for longer than 2 weeks After the cleaners are done you just need to walk through the house and make sure that everything is where it should be (you will have plenty of photos as a guide) and that the welcome books and Wi-Fi cards are out and that the place is very presentable for the next guests who might be checking-in the same afternoon So, being available when this happens is critical and it can be any day of the week BUT you will know well ahead of time as bookings are taken in advance If you feel this is something you’d like to do for some regular income, are in the Mentone area and are available please let me know Thanks Shaun - Due date: Flexible
