Top Yard Work related questions

Doing yard work doesn’t require special qualifications and can be a quick outdoor chore if you have the time. But you need to hire experienced yard specialists for technical yard tasks like landscaping and tree removal. A good yard worker is proficient in pruning techniques and mechanical equipment. 

Sure! You can schedule your yard work service on a weekend if that works best for you. When posting a task, specify what day you need the yard work done. A Tasker may be able to accommodate your preferred schedule. 

Depending on the tasks involved, yard work services can take several hours to several days. Yard cleanup and lawn mowing won’t take more than one afternoon, but heavier tasks like tree removal and flower bed planting need more time and care. It’s best to consult with your chosen specialist to get a more specific timeframe regarding the yard work service you need to have done. 

Nope, not necessarily! You can be transparent in your task post if you need a yard worker or handyman to bring their own gardening and cleaning tools. You can also consult with your Tasker regarding yard work repair as these jobs may require hammers, nails, or even paint. If you prefer to provide your own tools, that’s okay too. 

What do yard work services include?

Yard work covers a big number of tasks that may include everything from raking leaves to cleaning up debris to planting shrubs and flower borders! It might be challenging to decide what kind of tender loving care your yard needs. So here’s a rundown of the basic yard work services your chosen yard specialist can help you with:

Yard cleanup 

Of course, no one wants a messy yard because it can ruin your property’s perfectly-tailored appearance. Yard cleaning includes picking up trash and dirt such as animal feces, leaves, fallen branches, rocks, pine cones, and debris. A yard worker can do this task using trash bags, outdoor brooms, and rakes. Yard cleanup may also include removing old yard furniture and stubborn tree stumps that don’t match your yard’s landscape. 

Yard landscaping

Once your yard is clean, you can move on to other tasks such as landscaping and maintenance. Landscaping yard work includes mowing the lawn, trimming grass, preparing flower beds, watering the yard, mulching, composting, and fertilizing and pruning trees and shrubs. Yards also need regular irrigation, so make sure you have a working sprinkler system. It’s also important to keep insects, pests, and small rodents away from your yard, which you can get done on Airtasker as well.


Are you giving your yard a full makeover? You can also find Taskers skilled in paving patios and assembling outdoor furniture.  

Yard repair

Yards may have wooden fences, sheds, paths, patios, and walls that need repair, and your chosen Tasker can help with those too! If these important parts of your yard are beyond repair, they might need replacement. These heavy tasks will take more time to complete, so make sure to discuss the schedule with your chosen specialist. Always keep in mind that although there are yard work tasks you can do on your own, there are those that you should leave to the professionals. 


Yard cleanup, yard landscaping, and yard repair are usually done during clear weather, especially in the spring or summer. If you’re looking for more ways to beautify your home, Taskers can also help with staining your deck and installing a fence in your yard.
