Top Landscaping related questions

Landscapers take care of one or more of the following aspects of yard work: installing structural elements, garden planning and design, moving earth and rocks, creating pathways, irrigation, or building physical features like retaining walls and pergolas.
Gardening is more focused around growing plants - from planting to pruning, watering, and maintenance. Whereas, landscaping is more about the design, shape, and structure of the land.
Most landscapers are skilled in operating machinery and equipment needed to move earth and rocks or cut down large trees. Some landscapers are skilled in garden design, architecture, and planning, and may use special software to create their designs.
Hiring a landscaping contractor can cost anywhere from $35/hour up to $90/hour, depending on their skill level and how specialised they are.
To get professional landscaping on the front and back yard of a 600m2 block, you might pay anywhere from $150-$1500+. Basic landscaping tasks like levelling (ready for turf) and garden edging are quicker to do and will cost less. But if you need something more involved, like irrigation or retaining walls, the cost will be on the higher side.
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant landscaping licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What does landscaping include?

When you book your landscaper, it’s important to let them know in your task exactly what work you need to be done. That way, they’ll be able to make you a fair offer and bring along the right tools for the job. 

Not sure where to start? If you need a range of general landscaping services, grab a notepad and pen, then go for a wander outside. Make a note of anything that needs tidying up, trimming, or removing. Then make sure you include these tasks in your listing. 

Another way to think about your landscaping is to break it down by the type of specialised skill or service you need. Here are some of the jobs you might give to your landscaper and what you can expect to happen during the process.

Planning

When you’re undertaking a BIG change, it’s important to lay the groundwork with some planning, first. A garden designer will help come up with ideas and map everything out on paper before you get started. Or you might hire a landscape architect to plan a larger commercial landscaping project in your local community or public space.

Earth and rocks

Don’t break your back over your backyard landscaping - no matter how little or how much you need to do. You can hire earthmoving contractors to do your trench digging, levelling, and even your pool excavation or boring excavation. They’ll bring the all tools and equipment needed to dig and move the earth so you (literally) don’t have to get your hands dirty.

Gardens

Planning a nice new garden bed to grow your own veggies, flowers, shady trees, or just want to reduce the amount of ground you have to mow? Get some help with your garden landscaping and garden edging to get the project off your to-do list and done sooner. That way, you can get on with the fun bit - planting!

Water

Where there are plants, there’s water. Make sure your plants get water when they need it (without having to remember to hose) with a drip irrigation system or a sprinkler system installation. Or make your garden more beautiful with a garden pond or water features. Either way, getting your water systems sorted is so much quicker and easier with an extra pair of hands or a landscaper near you who knows what they’re doing.

Trees

Trees are wonderful things, but sometimes, a tree’s gotta go. If you’re not experienced, you should never do chainsawing, stump grinding, wood chipping and mulching, or land clearing yourself. That’s something you should leave up to an experienced landscaper with the right equipment and background to get the job done properly and safely. 

Building and installations

A big component of landscaping is installing things to make your space more functional and beautiful. Things like retaining walls, artificial turf, landscape lighting or even garden benches to sit on. It’s always best to get a landscaper to help when it involves heavy lifting or specialist equipment. They’ll help you get your installations done safely and help you start enjoying your space much sooner.
