Keeping your garden well maintained can lift the aesthetics and value of your home. It also has the ability to brighten mood and provide a pleasant outdoor space for your family. Gardeners have more responsibilities than you may think for the maintenance of an outdoor area. A good gardener will have an eye for detail, as well as embody the relevant skills, knowledge and experience needed in growing, shaping and maintaining a garden.

How to hire a Gardener

Verified businesses

Ensure the gardener you are hiring has a verified badge on their Oneflare profile. This means that they have provided a valid ABN and relevant insurance - this will give you the ultimate peace of mind when making a hiring decision.


Check for positive reviews from past customers or even photos of past work. Seeing what a gardener has done for customers in the past will give you a better idea of their style.

Include relevant information

As always, to receive the most accurate quote, include as much information about the job to be completed as possible. This will help the gardener know exactly what is needed, what equipment will be provided and how much time will be required.

Determine frequency

If you're looking to keep your garden maintained regularly, speak to a professional about how often they think their services may be required each month and whether they may have specials in place for repeat customers.


Once you receive up to three quotes for your requested job on Oneflare, it may not always be beneficial to choose the cheapest quote.
