Top Gardening related questions

A gardener is an expert in caring for gardens, including plants, lawns, weeding, pest control, and yard work. They help with any gardening tasks, from planting new garden beds and lawn mowing to maintaining existing ones. They take charge of regular garden maintenance, so the flora in your property remains beautiful all year round. 

Hiring a professional gardener will give you the best result for your gardens while saving you time. Professionals use smart tools combined with years of experience to take the best care of your plants and gardens. Their landscaping and garden care know-how can give you peace of mind that your plants are in good hands. 

Gardeners don’t need specific qualifications, but they may have completed studies in horticulture or landscaping. However, your gardener will need good knowledge, experience working with plants, and a reasonable physical fitness level.

Most gardeners will bring their own equipment, including lawnmowers, whipper snippers, leaf blowers, and safety gear. But some gardeners prefer to use the equipment provided at your home. It’s best to check with your gardener to see their approach, so you’re both prepared.

Weekly gardening maintenance and lawn mowing on a regular-sized suburban block may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. But if you need a major gardening service or have a larger block, you can expect your gardener to need more time.

You can expect to pay between $50-$200 when you hire a gardener through Airtasker. More complex gardening work can cost more. But the cost will depend on what tasks you need to do, your location, the size of your property, and how long the gardening will likely take. Be sure to provide all the necessary information about the task to set the right expectation when booking a Tasker.

What do gardening services include?

Gardening services range from basic mowing and maintenance to full landscape gardening help. Here are some of the most common gardening services near you and what you can expect from each when you hire a gardener:

Garden maintenance & lawn mowing

Regular garden maintenance is important to keep your property neat, under control, and looking its best. Whether you need a one-off tidy-up, maintenance while you’re away on holiday, or regular upkeep, a gardener can help.

Lawn mowing will start by clearing the area with a general garden tidy-up. Then your gardener will mow all grass areas, including your front and back lawn and footpath. Then they’ll use the brushcutter to whipper snip any edges. Garden services can also include pruning your trees, trimming hedges, raking leaves, or clearing away garden debris. 

Weeding & pest control

Gardens can struggle to flourish thanks to problems like weeds and pests that eat or crowd out your plants and lawn. Don’t worry - garden services can take care of this problem. As part of garden maintenance, local gardeners can help by weeding your lawn by hand or spraying lawns with herbicides that kill the weeds without affecting the type of grass you’re growing.

Your gardener will also work to prevent weeds in the future by mulching around plants over a layer of newspaper or cardboard so weeds can’t go through. Your gardener will treat unwanted pests using pesticides, tailoring the treatment to keep your home and garden free from spiders, caterpillars, cockroaches, and ants.

Garden planting

Need to fill out your garden bed or plant up a new section in your garden? Your gardener can help choose the right plants that will grow well in your garden. They’ll consider factors like optimum plant positioning, sunlight levels, moisture levels and rainfall, seasons, native vs. introduced species, maintenance needs, and more. They’ll choose plants for your garden that suit your landscaping design but also match the level of care and maintenance you (or your gardener) can provide.

Lawn restoration

If your lawn’s been overrun by weeds or it’s looking a bit dead or bare in patches, your gardener can help with law restoration, too. They can level out any holes, aerate to encourage healthy growth, add nutrients, spread the correct seed variety, and adjust the pH of your soil.

They’ll choose the right variety of lawn to lay turf or seed your lawn. Finally, they’ll water it all in, ensuring you know proper lawn care measures between visits, or set up irrigation for daily automatic watering.
