NDIS Coverage for Gardening Services

Is Gardening Covered by the NDIS?

Gardening and home maintenance services may qualify for NDIS funding under certain conditions. Eligibility hinges on the participant’s inability to perform these tasks independently. In cases where assistive technologies cannot facilitate task completion, or if hiring a professional is a necessity that anyone, disability or not, would encounter, NDIS funding is typically available.

Conversely, tasks within the individual’s capability, or those not generally requiring professional assistance, are not covered by NDIS.

What Are the NDIS Rates for Maintenance Services?

NDIS support is calculated on an hourly basis, aligning with the professional’s rate you choose to hire. The current NDIS reimbursement rates are as follows:

  • National non-remote: $50.03 per hour
  • National remote: $70.04 per hour
  • National very remote: $75.05 per hour

These rates cap the funding available for garden maintenance labor costs per hour. It’s crucial to note that NDIS does not extend funding to cover material costs such as soil, mulch, or plants, focusing solely on labor.

Do I Need an NDIS-Accredited Provider for Funding?

Hiring an NDIS-accredited provider is not a prerequisite for funding. Participants managing their plans can utilize NDIS funds for gardening services. Those under NDIA management should consult with an approved NDIS provider for gardening and maintenance.

Steps to Engage a Gardening Service with NDIS Funds:

  1. Compile a List of Needed Gardening Tasks: Start with a detailed list to ensure all your gardening needs are identified.
  2. Search for NDIS-Registered Gardening Services: If your plan is NDIA managed, focus on providers registered with NDIS for gardening and maintenance.
  3. Obtain and Compare Quotes: Assess the hourly rates from various services against NDIS funding limits to determine any out-of-pocket expenses.
  4. Inquire About Discounts and Availability: Some providers may offer discounts for regular service. Confirm their ability to work within your schedule.
  5. Arrange Access: Ensure the service provider can access your property as needed, possibly by providing a key or gate access.
  6. Establish a Service Agreement: Formalize the arrangement with a contract detailing the services, costs, and any specific terms.
  7. For Providers New to NDIS: Ensure they have a valid Australian Business Number (ABN) to claim for their services through NDIS.
