What can you expect from gardening services?

Gardening services range from basic lawn 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 & lawn 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, garden maintenance while you’re away on holiday, or regular upkeep of your backyard, 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. With professional garden service, you'll have no problem keeping your garden clean. 

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 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, the right fertilisers, seasons, native vs. introduced species, maintenance needs, and more. They’ll choose plants for your garden that suit your landscape design but match the 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 lawns 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.

Lake Illawarra NSW, Australia

I am looking for someone who can tidy up my garden by pulling out weeds and trimming back plants for re growth etc. I also need some shade cloth installed and maybe some new plants planted. Ideally someone with some knowledge of gardening and is happy to pull out weeds. I may need to put down new wood chips or something that is environmentally friendly that will stop the weeds as well. I have a small courtyard but there also a small garden bed that goes up one side of the house as well. Ideally I would love a garden that is maintenance free so suggestions/ideas on something different would be appreciated. I don’t really like ‘advise your budget’ can you advise your hourly rate? I have some potting mix and shade cloth but there may need to be other items purchased. I also have two dogs, and their only entertainment is barking through the fence at the neighbours dogs, so suggestions about keeping them out of the garden. - Due date: Before Saturday, 11 March 2023

I cannot thank Samuel enough for coming around and sorting out my gardening needs. He is very knowledgeable about everything to do with plants and gardening and a thorough gentleman. I would highly recommend his services.
