I would keep him; if he mentions it again I would tell him you don't want to hear it, and if he doesn't let up, I would find someone else.

I'd make a point of avoiding getting into any kind of discussion or even chit chat with him. be civil and courteous but remain distant. i guess if it continued or he was getting more and more intense about it, I'd probably find some kind of excuse and let him go.

Hmm, I don't know.
Yes, he's entitled to his opinion....but it'd make me very uncomfortable having him around knowing he felt that way.

he's there to do a job though, not pop past for afternoon tea and scones. the OP has said he's done a good job otherwise. I don't see his personal opinions as reason alone to fire him. it's his behavior that made the OP uncomfortable. i would say if that behavior continues (that is, continuing to discuss his political views with clients in what should otherwise be a professional setting) then you have grounds to let him go.

I would get rid of him.
I have no time for racist idiots.

I would probably told him all the reason why he was wrong and that I don't appreciate him spouting that sort rubbish in my home/yard. If he wanted to remain in business with me he better learn what is professional to talk about.
So a warning type thing.
I wish we could dump a Member of parliament for speaking at reclaim Australia rally.

I would keep him if you're happy with the job he does. And how much he charges.
If he brought it up again I'll probably politely say that you don't agree. ..you're happy with his services but would he please not continue to share his beliefs with you.
Then if that makes things weird you can look for another gardener.

Well we don't have anybody come to mow our lawns but if we did and they said that, I would invite all my friends who are Muslim around for coffee the next time he was coming. My house would be full
