" Job was completed but needed to have tools to complete from the beginning - airtasker post stated height and need for hedge trimming gear - so Phil had to leave to get more gear - he made a good effort with what tools he had but the hedge did not get the full trim it needed - didn’t feel we could not pay given the effort "

What do pruning services include?

An experienced pruning specialist can handle cutting your trees, shrubs, hedges, and other plants. Pruning (or cutting away dead or overgrown branches and stems) improves a plant’s health and appearance. 


If it’s your first time getting a Tasker to prune your plants, here’s a rundown of what they may do when they get to work on your garden: 


Removing debris and old growth 

The Tasker will usually check the plant for dead wood or flowers and remove those bits. They’ll keep the young growth intact. They may also remove old branches if there are new ones below them. 

 

Afterward, a Tasker can take away your pile of garden waste and dispose of it properly. Do you suddenly need a tool that neither you nor your Tasker has? In which case, you can book delivery service to get that set of secateurs or long-reach pruners for your last-minute gardening needs. 


Deciding on a shape for the plants 

The Tasker will typically assess if a plant needs to be pruned to a certain shape (if the plant is new), or if they need to trim it back to follow a certain look. For example, pyramid shapes allow for plenty of light, great for apple and pear trees. 

 

You can also discuss how you’d like your shrubs or trees to look with your Tasker! Your specialist will then try to achieve your vision for your garden or yard.    


Pruning the plants 

When pruning plants and trees, the Tasker needs to make good, clean cuts that finish at a point of growth. They’ll get rid of unproductive wood and make sure to encourage the growth of new shoots that will result in lots of fruits and flowers. 

 

The pruning process may vary depending on the type of plant: 

  • Plants may be pruned back by around 1/3 of their current growth. If it’s a flowering plant, the specialist may cut back the dead flower stems and stem tops. 

  • For hedges, the Tasker will typically follow your desired shape (e.g., a ball). Or, they may trim the sides of a hedge first, pruning the top last. The lowest parts of a hedge should be wider than the top. This structure lets the lower part of the plant get enough sunlight. 

  • As for trees, the pruning specialist may ensure the tree keeps growing laterally instead of upwards. For more complex tree trimming services, consider hiring a tree surgeon.  

 

Speaking of trimming back overgrown plants, did you know you can also book a lawn mowing service through Airtasker? Simply select the “Post a task” button to schedule an appointment!

Looking for an experience gardener to do some garden maintenance. The lawns and edges need cutting (back yard and two small patches out the front). But the larger task is cutting back all of our Jasmine which has become a bit unruly. The jasmine down the side of our house in particular has become very over grown and needs cutting back. It has crept up the back of the house and is obscuring our window. Also looking for somebody that can prune our plants a bit, mainly Cannas, after they have flowered the flower heads turn to seeds and need cutting down to the ground. There are some out the front and quite a few down the side of the house which are becoming a bit overgrown.

Hedging, pruning, weeding, Removal of garden waste

$340

Marayong NSW, Australia

20th Feb 2022

Good day, this task is for: 1) hedging about 16 trees to a rectangular shape and cutting the top at 1.8 metres Currently they are about 2 to 3 metres high. Need to trim the front branches as well to ensure they are within the planter boxes. I have marked a few of the photos to demonstrate the intention. Ask questions if now clear. 2) There are about 10 metres of plantation near the front green fence. Need to create a 30cm gap to the fence, remove weeds, remove branches which are wrapped around the fences, remove grass from within plants and trim to make the area presentable. 3) remove and take away all the generated rubbish and broom the area. From past experience it would be better to mulch and takeaway or cut to smaller pieces otherwise the branches will take a lot of space. The job must be done on a Saturday or Sunday. Job location MARAYONG.
