Shrub Trimming and Removal Questions & Answers
Feel like your shrubs are constantly getting away on you? Keeping shrubs and brush maintained can be harder than it looks and if they aren’t frequently trimmed it can ruin the overall aesthetic of your garden. Sometimes you’re better off removing those old tired shrubs and replacing with fresh new Hydrangeas, Hibiscuses, Weigela or Jasmine. Shaping your shrubs can also bring a bit of artistic flair into your garden.

How much do shrub services cost?
You may have been using the same shrub specialist for the last little while, but it doesn’t mean you’re getting the best bang for your buck. Please note, these prices should only be used as a guide and quotes will vary based on the situation and individual work performed.
The average hourly rate for gardeners in New Zealand is $35-65. Some gardeners will charge slightly differently e.g. $1 a minute or just have a fixed price for a job.
How will a gardener charge me?
This will depend on a variety of factors:
Materials - if the gardener needs special equipment for your job or petrol for their mower, you may be charged for what's needed. It’s best to discuss this with your pro before the job goes ahead.
Travel cost (this can be factored into the labour charge) - if the gardener charges travel costs, this is usually charged from the time the gardener leaves for your home, to when they arrive back at their base after the job.
GST (if any) - the total of 1, 2 will be added, and GST (15%) added.
How do I pay my gardening professional?
Most pros accept a range of payment methods, including:
Direct debit (Internet Banking)
Cash with Invoice
Credit Card via the gardener’s website (surcharge may apply)
