What does a weed control service include?

The exact steps and processes involved in your weeding service will depend on the type of weeding you need to be done. Common weed control services include:

Lawn weed removal

Most lawns need weed control every couple of months to keep the weeds at bay. Common lawn weeds include nutgrass, bindi, clover, dandelion, and onion grass. Your regular lawn weeding service will include a quick inspection to identify the weeds, then your gardener will spray the appropriate weed kill to destroy them. But if your lawn is more weed than grass, it’ll probably need more drastic action. Your weed controller might recommend digging up and reseeding your lawn or another turf repair technique to ensure your grass won’t get overrun by weeds.

Garden weed removal

Weeds in your garden can choke out other plants and make your garden look unruly. Your weed control service will include identifying the weeds and then making a plan to remove them. If the weeds are large and easy to remove (or close to other plants), they may pull them out by hand, then dispose of them. But if the weeds are small, harder to remove, and not directly next to other plants, they’ll use the appropriate weed spray to kill them. Finally, your weed control service may also include prevention methods, like putting down layers of newspaper/cardboard covered with mulch to prevent weed seeds from germinating. It’s also a good idea to plant up your garden to fill any gaps and prevent weeds from sprouting up.

Garden tidy up

Many weed control service providers also offer general yard and garden tidying. As they’re removing weeds, they’ll likely find rubbish hiding in your garden, like broken pots, bricks, and cracked toys your kids left outside for too long. Plus, some plants might need a quick prune (especially if they’re covering paths or lawn areas), and you may need to remove palm fronds and large tree branches. So if you know your garden needs some extra work, ask your weed controllers to include a garden tidy up and they’ll remove the extra rubbish, along with the weeds.

Environmental weed removal

Introduced plants and weeds are some of the greatest threats to the natural environment. Whether you live or work in an organisation in beautiful bush surroundings, along the coast, or near wetlands, it’s important to consider suitable weed control measures to restore, protect, and maintain these areas. Your weed control service provider will do an assessment of the area to determine what weeds need removing. Then they’ll help remove them without further damaging the area and provide advice on how you can revegetate with suitable native plants.

Gardening, weed removal


Lake Illawarra NSW, Australia

6th Mar 2023

I am looking for someone who can tidy up my garden by pulling out weeds and trimming back plants for re growth etc. I also need some shade cloth installed and maybe some new plants planted. Ideally someone with some knowledge of gardening and is happy to pull out weeds. I may need to put down new wood chips or something that is environmentally friendly that will stop the weeds as well. I have a small courtyard but there also a small garden bed that goes up one side of the house as well. Ideally I would love a garden that is maintenance free so suggestions/ideas on something different would be appreciated. I don’t really like ‘advise your budget’ can you advise your hourly rate? I have some potting mix and shade cloth but there may need to be other items purchased. I also have two dogs, and their only entertainment is barking through the fence at the neighbours dogs, so suggestions about keeping them out of the garden. - Due date: Before Saturday, 11 March 2023

I cannot thank Samuel enough for coming around and sorting out my gardening needs. He is very knowledgeable about everything to do with plants and gardening and a thorough gentleman. I would highly recommend his services.

Grass and weeds cut


Mount Warrigal NSW, Australia

14th Dec 2022

My house has a small patch of grass (about 3 x 1.5m) that has become overgrown. Weeds have also come up along the paths around the house since our former gardener retired. It will be a bigger job to get it back to decent (maybe 2 hours work). I'm looking for the person who is also willing and able to maintain the yard on a monthly (or so) basis. The house is at the top of a short but steep driveway. Pushing your gear up there is probably more of a job than cutting the grass. Some of the weeds will need spraying (a weedkiller from the hardware store would do). - Due date: Flexible

Great worker, very thorough and kept in touch. Will happily work with Ryan again.
