Was a great help today, thanks for the effort today matey

Weeding & mulching


Dean J was very enthusiastic and helpful as a person. He threw himself at the work and offered many great ideas on how to improve the look and feel of my garden. He took away all the debris and (hear this) cleaned up after himself, leaving a spotless garden. I would thoroughly recommend him. He is polite, friendly, knows his stuff, works hard and efficiently- tremendous value for money!

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.

Garden Assistance/Labourer for Artificial grass & Mulch | $50 per hour


Newtown NSW 2042, Australia

25th May 2022

Hi there, I have a small backyard (2m x 7m) in Newtown. With all this rain the grass has died. I need assistance adding new soil, a layer of plastic sheeting, a roll of artificial grass and some mulch. I'd imagine about three hours work. I'm proposing $50 an hour and will pay more if it takes longer. PROCESS: 1. Add soil so there is a gentle slope to the drain in the back corner. (Some shovel work) 2. Lay black plastic sheeting over entire area 3. Lay rubber mats under artificial turf area – they are just sit there (2m x 3m) 4. Lay roll of artificial turf (The roll is heavy enough that some double-sided tape is probably all that is needed – all supplied) - no cutting, just roll it out 5. Shovel out mulch over the remaining black plastic Wanting to get this done ASAP before the next rain. Simple job and an extra shovel would be handy. When are you available? Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. - Due date: Before Monday, 30 May 2022

Garden overhaul (weed & mulch backyard etc)


Erskineville NSW, Australia

14th Sep 2021

I need my garden fully overhauled (cosmetic/superficial big clean up) in preparation for selling the house: 1. All weeds / grass removed (general pulled from ground completely and removed from pavers). 2. Ivy on fence trimmed right back so it is very neat and tidy. 3. Garden waste to all be completely removed. 4. Spread woodchips all around newly weeded dirt area (40m2), minimal thickness - prefer you arrange woodchips but let me know if price excludes. 5. Top up blue metal driveway (12m2) with matching pebbles (only minimal top up required). Photos attached. Ideally to be done this weekend (Sat 18th & Sun 19th) but can potentially be done early next week (not my top preference). Location Erskineville. Roller door side access but very narrow (2.4m). Could reverse a ute in with a bit of caution.

Daniel really went above and beyond in achieving a huge result in before/after with overhauling my ‘jungle’ of a yard, he removed all weeds, trimmed large ivy, coordinated mulch, gravel, rubbish removal, no problem was too big for him, problem solver and extremely flexible. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough! I will be using you again in the future! Thanks a million.
