Everything you need to know about finding a Gardener

With time being at such a premium for many people these days, employing the services of a garden maintenance company means that your garden will always look its best with minimal effort from the homeowner – leaving them free to enjoy the garden.

Services Provided by a Gardener


Garden maintenance companies can do almost any job around the garden, no matter how small it may be. Some examples of what they can do include:Photos courtesy of Urunga Hirequip

An experienced garden will be able to advise on the best way to remove weeds from your garden and assist in their removal. For more see garden weed control.
  • Garden cleanup: A garden maintenance service can assist in garden clean up, which can be a regular scheduled service or a one off to spruce things up outdoors. This may include any number of tasks, including: mowing, planting, tree and shrub pruning, leaf collection, weeding, watering, edging, mulching, fertilizing and minor landscaping. For more informatino see garden cleanup.

  • Rubbish removal: If your garden is littered with debris from a storm or other incident, it can seem like a mission to clean it up. A gardener can assist by removing all rubbish and debris from your garden and recycle it if possible. To find a service in your area see garden rubbish removal.

Choosing a Gardener


When choosing a garden maintenance company, ensure that they are fully qualified and hold the correct insurance. This will provide you with peace of mind. Ask for a quote before hiring the professional, and be sure that it includes all aspects of what you need done in your garden. If you require an ongoing maintenance program, ask if the price is per visit or a sum that covers a certain period of time (e.g. three months).

How Much Does Garden Maintenance Cost?


Garden maintenance services base their rate on an hourly basis - expect to pay in the region of $40 an hour, a figure which can vary widely depending on location and the service involved. You may opt for a basic service that tidies and trims or require a more comprehensive offering that includes lawn mowing or fertilising for example. You will typically also be given a flat rate for regular monthly visits.
