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!

Mulching garden prunings at our house
Donvale VIC, Australia
6th May 2023
We need a few piles of pruning mulched. There are a few different piles around the block. Keen to hear if the person would drag and mulch the pruning for us, or whether we would need to drag the pruning down to the driveway or even the footpath out front to be mulched (and what the cost difference is for those two services: machine only, or dragging the prunings as well). Want to know if there’s a cost difference for the service to take away the mulched pruning as well. Our green bin is full. A lot of the pruning is camellia and monstera. Type of gardening: Other, Garden cleanup Size of garden: 150-200m2. Has green waste bin: No - Due date: Flexible. Would like it done sooner rather than later. Can be done on a weekend or a weekday.
