What Factors Affect Garden Maintenance Cost?

Keeping your garden in top condition requires time and effort, which is why many people opt to use garden maintenance services for their North Shore properties.

The cost of these services varies greatly depending on a handful of factors, which we will take a closer look at here.

The Size and Complexity of Your Garden or Yard

The size and complexity of your yard play a considerable role in determining maintenance costs. More extensive gardens or yards require more time and resources to maintain, resulting in higher costs.

If you have a complex layout with multiple levels, slopes, beds and pathways, maintenance will be more time-consuming, adding to the cost of maintenance services.

Residential properties are generally smaller and more straightforward, while strata and commercial properties are generally larger and need more planning, also adding to maintenance costs.

Frequency of Services

Choosing a service that includes basic tasks like mowing, edge trimming, and weeding will cost less than services that include time and labour-intensive tasks like pruning, hedge trimming, fertilising, and mulching.

The frequency of services will also have an impact on the cost. While you may think scheduling maintenance visits less regularly will save money, this may not be true. Infrequent maintenance will result in more work at each visit, as the lawn and other plants will have plenty of time to grow out of control.

Specialised services and varying seasonal requirements (like soil testing, aeration, mulching and fertilising) will impact the cost of your garden maintenance. Ask your garden service company about their different packages to find the most cost-effective solution for your requirements.
