What do mulching services include?

Buying and spreading mulch doesn’t have to take a lot of time, money, and effort—especially when a mulching specialist is within arm’s reach! When you book a mulching service through Airtasker, you can expect your Tasker to take care of this labor-intensive yet crucial part of maintaining a garden. Here’s what a typical mulching service will include: 

Picking and buying the right mulch 

First, the Tasker may assess your garden and determine the kind of mulch it needs. Shredded bark is quite common and easy to apply, for example, but isn’t as nutritious for the soil. Household waste such as grass clippings, leaves, and compost is beneficial for the soil but isn’t great at preventing weeds. Shredded leaves and pine needles are also great for mulching. A thinner mulch made of grass clippings and straw may be easier to use and more suitable for vegetable gardens.  

The Tasker can also help you figure out how much mulch to buy based on the size of your yard, the thickness required, and your budget. You can provide the supply budget and send your Tasker to the garden center. Otherwise, you can book a mulch delivery service to get the materials sent straight to your doorstep.  

Preparing the garden beds

Once the supplies are ready, the Tasker starts clearing the flower and vegetable beds. They’ll tidy up and other debris, then scrape off the old mulch. Next, they’ll check if your beds require watering and an application of herbicide. This is the best time to get the moisture and weedkiller in since the mulch will help hold them. Then, the mulching specialist may uproot any weeds lingering in the garden. 

Spreading the mulch 

Now, it’s time to spread that mulch! The Tasker may put on a layer that’s around 1-4 inches thick—just enough to keep the moisture in and keep weeds out, but not so thick that no water reaches the soil. Ideally, the Tasker should avoid creating “mulch volcanoes,” which can become hotbeds for pests, rot, and diseases that can spread around your garden. 

Take note that for ornamentals, mulch should be at least 3 inches away from the base of each plant. But if you’re growing vegetables, the Tasker needs to apply mulch around the base to help them retain moisture and prevent weeds. 

Mulching trees

Tree mulching has many benefits, so you should consider booking a tree mulching service. A Tasker can spread mulch over the trees in your garden. This process protects young trees, provides much-needed nutrition, and reduces the threat of other plants and weeds. If you have an old or damaged tree, you can also hire a tree surgeon who can safely and correctly prune and treat trees.

Move mulch


Banksia Park SA, Australia

1st Sep 2022

I need about 2 cubic meters of pine bark moved to my back yard. We have a very steep yard, so trailer access into the back yard is not possible I have a mechanisim of moving mulch into the yard by means of a zip line, we have used it to move about 10tonne of equipment into the yard so far, it works well and saves manual labour but takes time. You will need to unload the mulch from the ute into the zipline, send it down, unload it into a wheelbarrow then move it upto 20m to it's final destination. Would be best done as a 2 person team, one at the top one at the bottom. - Due date: Before Saturday, 3 September 2022

Lawns Cut/Weeds Removed (and mulch spreading)


Evanston Gardens SA, Australia

8th Aug 2021

I have a tiny backyard with long grass! Garden measures 11m x 6m. I need grass cut, edges done and weeds removed (there are not many). I don't have a green bin, so the green waste would need to be removed. I also need a thin top layer of mulch spread over front yard. It measures 11m x 7m. A trailer will be necessary to collect the mulch from Garden Grove and bring it to the house. I will put the price for the ad to include the collection the mulch. It is 27km from the nursery to me plus your travel distance. I will pay: 0 – 3 KM – $9 (Flat fee) 4 – 6 KM – $12 (Flat fee) 7 – 9 KM – $16 (Flat fee) 10 – 20 KM – $2 (Per KM charge) This is $71 from the Garden Centre to me. Your additional travel from your home to the garden centre will be paid at $2 per km. I will trust you to be honest with the mileage. I will average the collection and delivery price at $100 (for the sake of the ad.) The date must be flexible. I may have to alter it according to when photographs are being taken for the sale. You will require a trailer and shovel plus rake to collect and spread the mulch. A lawnmower and whipper-snipper for the grass and your own imaginative way of pulling the weeds. A fleece bag would help you remove the green waste. The gardening price is $80.

James is amazing. Nothing is too much for him. He is work proud ensuring the highest standard is achieved. James is friendly and I highly recommend him. He has been a joy to have working in the garden.
