How to Cash In On Your Green Thumb


Let’s face it you either love to get your hands dirty in the garden or you don’t, but either way, it’s a job that needs to be done. For those who love it, it can be therapeutic. But sadly, we don’t all have time to get out there and keep the garden looking great.

While it’s easy to put off tasks like mowing the lawn and trimming overgrown branches, it’s even easier to find someone nearby who can do those tasks for you. That’s where Airtasker can help you.

Airtasker is an online marketplace where people can outsource those pesky, time-consuming tasks that are clogging up the to-do list: everything from home cleaning and household repairs, to gardening and bookkeeping. It’s a simple, straightforward way to get more done. And if you have some spare time up your sleeve, it’s a great way to make money.

So how does it work? Let’s say your neighbour needs his lawn mowed; all he needs to do is post a task on Airtasker, and within minutes trustworthy Airtasker Workers will make him an offer which he can accept.

It makes it easy for people in your neighbourhood get the help they need with odd household jobs. It’s basically a virtual community noticeboard where enterprising individuals can find opportunities at the click of a button.

If you’re a green thumb looking for new ways to keep your bank balance in the green, an opportunity might be right under your nose in your neighbour’s neglected flowerbed. With Airtasker, you can connect with people nearby who need your help.

To get started, select your location, go to Browse Tasks and use keywords that match your skills e.g. garden and clean. Then just browse through the available tasks until you find the gardening task that’s right for you.

You will come across all kinds of tasks, big and small. For instance, somebody with a bad back might need help digging up soil in their garden bed or someone could be going on holidays and need the plants watered and grass mowed. You can set up an Airtasker Alert to make sure that you don’t miss out on good opportunities.

Once you find a task that suits you, make an offer by entering a price that you think is reasonable. Don’t forget to let the Job Poster know a little bit about yourself and why you’re the right person for the task in the comment section. If your offer is accepted, the Job Poster adds the task funds to an Airtasker Trust Account so that you can get started straight away. Once you’ve completed the task, request payment on the task and the funds will be released.
