Top Lawn Mowing related questions
How often should my lawn get mowed?

Keeping your lawns shorter can make the mowing easier and quicker each time. Experts recommend letting your grass stay a little longer in summer to help retain water stop it from drying out. In spring and after a lot of rain, your lawn will grow faster, so you will need to cut it more regularly.

The best time to book your lawn mowing service is usually mid-morning, before the heat of the day, or late afternoon.
What are some common lawn mowing services?
Lawn mowing services usually include cutting the grass to between 5-10 cms (depending on the season), trimming grass around trees, garden beds, and edges, and cleaning grass clippings and debris from paths. Your gardener will usually dispose of the cut grass in your green waste or can take it away for you.
How much should you pay someone to mow your lawn?
Lawn mowing usually costs between $40-$50 an hour, and usually takes about 30mins to mow an average garden lawn.

You can find thousands of local independent lawn mowing contractors on Airtasker. Airtasker contractors list their experience, tools, licences, insurance, and reviews on their profile, so it’s easy to find the best lawn mowing service for your garden.
What’s included with your lawn mowing service?
A standard lawn mowing service involves cutting the grass to between 5-10 cms (2”- 4”), normally using a petrol lawnmower. Lawn mowing contractors will usually bring their own equipment, plus bags to take the rubbish away. If you have a large garden or acreage, a ride on mower might be required, so make sure you specify the size of the area in your post.
But it doesn’t have to end there. Many lawn mowing service providers offer other inclusions along with the mowing, like...
Edging and whipper snipping
Lawn mowing professionals will have a whipper snipper (and other tools) to give your lawn sharp edges and stop your grass from growing onto the footpath or curbs. They’ll also clean around garden beds, trees, and features for a clean, professional finish.
Your gardener may use a leaf blower or broom to remove cut grass from the pathways and edges to leave a clear surface. They’ll also take away any lawn clippings, twigs, and any debris that was on the grass before cutting. If you prefer, you can ask that they leave the grass clippings for you to use as mulch or compost.
Lawn mowing does not usually include removing hard rubbish and waste from your grass. If you want your gardener to clear the area before cutting, make sure you specify this so they can include it in their quote.
Keeping your lawns lush and green requires regular feeding and should be part of your garden maintenance. Knowing which fertilisers to apply and when can make the difference between golf-club enviable green and corn flakes crunchy lawns. Strong, healthy lawns need less watering and are more weed resistant.
Keeping weeds out of your lawns will make them a more welcoming place to play, rest, and relax without worrying about prickles and spikes. Regular trimming, manual weed removal, and organic or chemical weed kill will keep your lawns looking a lot healthier, too. You might also add on weeding for your garden beds so your whole garden can look tidy.
Leaves on your grass and driveway not only look messy but can create a hazard if they get wet and slippery. Your gardener can provide leaf blowing services and a garden tidy up, including removing the dry leaves.
Soil can get compacted over time, so regular aerating is a good idea if you want to keep it healthy. To aerating your lawn, your gardener will use a machine to make small holes in the ground at regular intervals. This allows for better drainage and allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass.
If your lawn has bare patches or is still getting established, you can add garden seeding to your lawn mowing service. Professional gardeners have the tools, equipment, and know-how to freshly seed your lawn and get it growing in no time.
