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!

Lawn mowing & perimeter pruning


Hunters Hill NSW, Australia

11th Sep 2022

Hello, i need the back, front and side lawn mowed. Backyard is the most unruly. I need pruning of plants along the perimeter thats hanging over the footpath. Odd weeds along the perimeter removed. There is a green bin and i have garden bags if not everything fits in the bin. Appreciate if all mess is cleaned up. This is a tricky garden. Must be professional. Looking for new regular gardener that would do the job properly every time (like my previous gardener who has since retired). Early Saturday morning would be ideal this time around. Looking for someone who could do this monthly going forward provided they did a good job. Future jobs will include hedging but this is not required for this particular job. Early mornings ideal for monthly maintenance. Thank you.

Pruning, clean-up and vegetation removal


Hunters Hill NSW, Australia

25th Jan 2022

Large courtyard garden in townhouse. Some pruning has already been done with vegetation to be removed. More pruning to be done at height and removed. Could be further landscaping and /or maintenance if interested. - Due date: Before Sunday 30 January

Not sure why my first review was removed? Quoted $300 for 4-5 hours work of pruning & removing garden waste. 2 Hours pruning of trees done and full payment of expected. Made it clear that would only be able to remove portion of garden waste with additional $200 tipping fees. Waited for payment to be approved and I did not feel safe to challenge in person. Have since learnt this has become a common scam. Recommend to use professional tree service and mulching company even just for overgrown garden.

General garden tidy, mowing and pruning


Putney NSW 2112, Australia

29th Apr 2022

We have a tropical style garden comprising Kentia palms and Golden canes with an area of lawn approximately 14m x 6 m. Right now, our lawn needs attention (mowing and edging) and the kentia palms and golden canes need some pruning. It would be a bonus if you could also sweep and gurney some of our hard surfaces around our property (driveway and pool area). I estimate that a total of 5 hours would be required for 1 person to complete the work required. Note: garden waste would just need to be put into bags or tied up (ready for a booked council clean up). - Due date: Flexible

Nathan was very diligent and got our lawns back into great shape after all the rain. He left our garden areas looking immaculate after weeding and pruning our palms. He was very easy to deal with, polite and friendly! Thanks Nathan!
