Where do you need a Gardener?

What can I expect?

When you request a Gardener we send your request to the best, most local Gardeners first, then we let other great local providers see it.

The maximum quotes you will initially receive is three. Once you have received three quotes we will email you to ask if you want any more quotes.

Gardeners will often need to view the garden before they can provide an accurate estimate. This gives them a chance to assess the current garden condition and talk to you about what you need in order to provide you a gardening service that meets your needs and budget. Whether you need a one-off garden clean up, on-going garden maintenance, fertilising and mulching, shrub or tree pruning, weeding or lawn mowing, we have gardeners ready to help. They can advise on all aspects of garden care, including plant selection and placement, fertilising and mulching, which grass seeds and wetting agent are suited, how to avoid damaging flowers/plants when fertilising, which watering system to install and how to encourage strong root growth in plants.

If you are looking for very substantial garden renovation – like a garden design for a new property then head over to our landscaping page to get started finding the right expert for your project.

Should I Choose a Gardener, Landscaper or a mowing business?

  • If you are looking to have your garden maintained or brought back to life with a focus on plant life, then you are in the right place to find a great gardener.
  • If you are just looking for the best price for lawn mowing or making your lawn look great then we have lawn care companies that focus purely on that.
  • If you are looking to design/redesign your garden completely and look to include landscaping features, then a landscaping professional is what you want.

Finding the best local gardener

A skilled gardener will likely have years of experience and be more of an artist than a tradesman. Good gardeners should have all their own machinery, be equipped to remove all waste disposal, be a member of a trade association and have public liability insurance.

Gardening jobs fall broadly in two categories – garden maintenance and garden landscaping. We ask you specific questions to match you to an interested gardener.

General Gardeners carry out many different jobs that keep your garden looking neat and tidy, like mowing lawns, weeding, trimming hedges, and pruning plants.

Gardeners are busier during the summer months when the weather's good, so it's best to book a gardener or landscape gardener before the rush, then you are more likely to get a better rate for the work.

Landscape gardeners are hired for bigger projects. They can come up with detailed drawings incorporating new features and once you're happy with their plan, bring it to life. A professional landscape gardener should have a thorough knowledge in horticulture and plant care and they should be able to advise you which plants are suitable for your garden and can install lighting, add water features and sometimes carry out hardscaping (such as laying pavers and installing retaining walls) If you have a dream of creating a garden that rivals the ones you see in magazines, then they can help you make that dream come true.

What a Gardener can help with

  • Planting, weeding and pruning.
  • Woodchip or gravel paths.
  • Hedge trimming or removal.
  • Pressure washing outdoor spaces.
  • Getting rid of sheds.
  • Creating borders and building raised beds.
  • Installing a garden irrigation system
  • Laying new turf.
  • Mowing the lawn.

Questions you should ask a gardener

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does it cover?
  • Will they be carrying out the work themselves? If not, what experience does the person have and are they covered by insurance?
  • Can they show you examples of previous work?
  • Do you have references I can follow up?

See landscaping for additional questions you should ask a landscaper.

Insurance

Gardeners should ideally have public liability insurance, for landscapers this is essential and they should also carry professional indemnity insurance.

Cost of gardening jobs

Advertised rates for gardeners start at under $30 per hour, but this is usually for basic less skilled work such as clearing garden refuse or weeding. The average rate as of April 2017 is around $45 per hour.

Gardening Job Average Price
Pruning and hedging $65
Weeding $90
Weed spraying $45
Garden waste removal $65
Fertilising $40
Slashing $90
Lawn mowing up to 600m2 $50
Lawn mowing up to 950m2 $60
Lawn mowing over 1000m2 $70

Some gardeners offer deals for repeat work, for example you may get a better rate if you hire them to mow your lawn on a regular basis.

Garden irrigation systems

Irrigation is the watering system you use to keep your grass and plants healthy. You can either water them by hand, or you can use an automatic watering system to take care of the watering for you – a worthwhile investment especially if you're going on a long holiday in the summer months.

garden sprinklers

There are the four types of garden irrigation systems:

  • Drip irrigation – good for vegetable patches, flowerbeds, hanging baskets and potted plants, it releases water slowly through a drip emitter to give the plant time to soak up the water. Slowing down the water release means less wastage.
  • Micro spray jets – these spray water over a radius of up to 2 metres, they are great for watering multiple plants at once and ideal for flowerbeds, borders and landscaped areas. They can be directed downwards into a greenhouse. You can turn the jets on and off as and when you want or a water timer can be added to make it automated.
  • Mini sprinklers – a bit like micro spray jets, but a lot more powerful. They have a rotating jet which provides a heavy soaking spray, covering a radius of up to 5 metres. They are ideal for larger areas like large vegetable patches.
  • Pop up sprinklers – based underground and pop up when they're being used. They have the best coverage and are the most efficient when it comes to reducing water wastage. You decide when you want your lawn watered and an electronic water timer takes care of the rest.

Planning permission for landscaping jobs

Planning permission is not needed for your average gardening job, if your constructing a new shed or similar your landscape professionals should know and secure all appropriate building permits that you may require. If you are unsure, it is best to contact your local council to get a definitive answer on which permits are required.
