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.

Courtyard garden maintenance


Redfern NSW, Australia

22nd Feb 2022

We have a small 3x3 metre courtyard that has a creeping fig on the walls. Need a general trimming of the vine, but on one area we need the vine pulled back off the wall where it has encroached over to our neighbours side. This involves stepping onto the roof for a short period and reaching some vines on the wall so depending on what equipment you have, a small ladder or step ladder is likely needed. Any day this week would suit.

Brett worked even in the pouring rain to get the task done, really friendly and efficient- did a great job.

Newtown NSW, Australia

8th Aug 2022

I just need some general garden maintenance at my House in Newtown. This includes pruning, weeding & general clean up of leaves at the back & side of the house. It also includes the weeding in the front courtyard. Photos attached. Just wanted to add...the size of my yard is very small. Approx 50 sqm at the back (includes the paved area) & the front courtyard is tiny at a small 10-12 sqm. So if you have the right tools & have done gardening before, it shouldn’t take more than 1.5 hours. There is no no real grass. Hope that helps with the quotes. Also, looking for someone on a regular basis ie every 6 weeks or so.
