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.

I’m currently pregnant and under orders to ‘rest’ from my doctor and my yard has become a little crazy over the last couple of months. The pictures are from thismorning. I need the following done: - Weed removal (STRICTLY NO POISON - I have a dog that eats the plants outside so it will need to be manual pulling out of weeds) - Pick up Crabapples - they’re so annoying! - Pick up dog poo - Water plants I have a greenwaste wheelie bin that should fit all of the weeds and crabapples in it so no waste removal is necessary.

Need some help putting my front and back yard in order, as they are a bit overgrown. It is a big block (900m2) and if done properly I think the work will take a full day or 2 half days to complete. Must have your own equipment and take away green waste. Things that need doing are: 1. Mowing front and back yards 2. Trimming of 4 trees (will require a ladder). 3. Whipper snip around garden beds/retaining walls and fences. 4. Use brush cutter or similar to cut back over grown “creeper” plant in one garden bed. 4. Hedging around footpaths 4. Weed garden beds and add weed killer. 6. Sweep paved areas 7. Remove garden waste.
