  • There are so many variables. It’s probably best to ring for a quote.

  • Currently gardeners in Queensland charge an average price of about $50.92/hr. In the Australian Capital Territory, gardening jobs usually cost around $49.06/hr, and the average price of gardening services in Western Australia is at approximately $48.52/hr.

  • It depends on what you ask them to do, and how regularly they come. Most frame their charges in terms of the work, not as an hourly rate.

  • It really depends on a number of factors: area, size of lawn, what you want done etc. Call a few people and have them give you (free) quotes.

  • Good idea to check with neighbours. :)

  • It might be worthwhile checking if your relative’s neighbours use/want a gardener as they might do a discount for maintaining a few houses near each other.

  • Good idea about the pensioner discounts tip – thanks!

  • ring around as some small business offer pensioner discounts

  • Thanks for the answer mom81879 – looking into this for an elderly relative.

  • Yep, I have. Our local ones charge $40 an hour. They’re really good but not something you would use all the time
