What do shrub and bush trimming services include?

Shrub and bush trimming services involve removing any dead or damaged branches and stems from your shrubs, bushes, and other greenery. At Airtasker, you can easily find a shrub trimming service near you. Our Taskers can inspect your shrub beforehand and prepare the right equipment and gear before diving into the trimming work. They can also help clean up your property once the service is complete. For a better idea of what our shrub trimming service entails, here are more details:

Pre-Trimming Preparation

Before starting any trimming job, your Tasker first inspects the current condition of your shrubs and bushes. It involves taking note of any areas with more overgrowth and making sure that no stray animals such as cats, possums, and squirrels are left hiding in your greenery. The next step includes laying a tarpaulin or groundsheet around the entire shrub. Doing so makes cleaning up after much easier as it catches any branches, leaves, or other debris that fall to the ground during the trimming work.

Your Tasker also prepares the proper tools and equipment such as hedge trimmers, chainsaws, hedge shears, and rubbish bags and bins. Since a bush trimming service carries certain risks, your Tasker also dons protective clothing before starting the work. This helps avoid any major or minor accidents such as bruises, cuts, scrapes, and eye and impact injuries.

Shrub and bush trimming

When left to grow on their own, shrubs and bushes can become out of control and leave an unsightly mess in your garden or lawn. Trimming helps you not only to avoid this but to improve the overall size and shape of your bush. Your Tasker starts your tree and bush trimming service by cutting away along the top while keeping the shrub level even. The base of your shrub must always be wider than the top to let the sun's rays penetrate your entire shrub.

Your Tasker then continues trimming with smooth, even strokes to keep the sides balanced and avoid over trimming. They remove diseased and damaged branches to retain the plant's health and check your entire shrub for early signs of pest damage. The last step involves your Tasker inspecting your bush from a distance and removing any remaining branches that look out of place.

Post-trimming cleanup

After the trimming work, your Tasker cleans your property from top to bottom. The tarpaulin placed underneath your bush can catch most bush clippings, trimmings, and other debris but any branches and stems that have flown away to other areas in your property are gathered and placed in the proper rubbish bins.

You can also ask your Tasker to conduct a complete garden clearance if you have any remaining dirt and debris that can obstruct your paths and walkways. They can even mow your lawn, remove weeds from your other greenery, and do other garden tidy-up tasks at your request.

So I’ve been cutting away at my jasmine plant and lemon tree, and can’t do anymore due to an unrelated wrist injury. Need someone to come and bundle, and take away a small / half trailer load of jasmine and lemon tree. Pics attached. If you could spend a bit of time cleaning up the jasmine with a hedge trimmer, that would be awesome too. Date of task is not important, as long as it’s sometime in June.

Great job!

We are after someone to come and weed our garden (3 separate small garden beds) trim some bushes (brown ones in photos) and sweep up green waste and driveway and remove green waste. I’m after someone to actually pull the weeds and roots out, not just break them off so they grow back in 2 weeks. Someone with a high attention to detail. Could happen Friday afternoon, or Saturday.

Wonderful job thanks so much, will definitely use again...

We currently have a bit of an overgrown front and back yard! The front yard has a bush that is overgrown and needs clipping back, with some light weeding for the patio. The back yard is fairly overgrown with weeds on the patio itself and around the edges. Weedkiller has been used on the majority but it's remaining stubborn. We're hoping that someone with a bit more experience will be able to help us out - we have people viewing a room at the house soon so speedy assistance would be great. There will be a large amount of waste from the weeding and we have limited bin space, so any ability to dispose would be perfect. We do have some old fence material as well that may need to be disposed of or set aside, currently under some of the weeds. The pictures attached show it in it's current state, with the first picture showing how it was previously.

George did a fantastic job of taming a pretty overgrown front and back yard. He was great to communicate with and was incredibly helpful throughout, as well as being exceptionally friendly. Would highly recommend.
