Any green-fingered kids out there? Then this could be a great way for them to earn some extra cash this summer! If they’re confident they have some useful gardening skills, they can offer to do some work for friends, family, and neighbours (as long as it’s safe to do so, of course). 

⚠️  Rooster Reminder: Please make sure you’re sticking to government guidelines with all the ideas below.

Here are some ideas on jobs you could charge for:

🌷  Repotting plants 

🌿  De-weeding in time for autumn and winter months 

💧  Watering and feeding the plants (could be a recurring revenue stream ?)

🌾  Mowing the lawn 

🥀  Trimming dead flower heads 

🎨  Painting walls and garden fences 

🪴  Caring for houseplants – ok not quite an ‘in the garden’ job but it’s likely that owners are happy to hand this over when they’re away on holiday!

Please note that if your kids use their Rooster Card to receive money earned, your family will be charged if you go over our limits. You can read more about this in our pricing, fees and limits page. You also can’t accept international and non-personal transfers or payments on the Rooster Card. The Rooster Card is only currently available in the UK.
