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.


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.


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!


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 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.

Small Courtyard Landscaping


Prahran VIC 3181, Australia

25th May 2023

Looking for simple courtyard refreshing. Tasks include: • Remove weeds, top layer of mulch and about 100mm of soil (total area in question around 8m2 • fill with thin layer of sand and cover with weed mat (I want to fill with pebbles or new mulch later) • Remove weeds and top layer (white pebbles 5-10mm in front of house) • Take green waste to tip (this will also include soil and plants of old plant pots 4-5x) The job is done after that. I will later do the finish. Note: Area in question will be cleared prior to work commencement. Pavers will stay.

Site levelling work to a front yard


Pascoe Vale South VIC, Australia

30th Apr 2023

Need around 2 to 4 hours of excavator work to level and grade a front yard and batter down to the footpath. (the piece of timber holding it back is rotten and will be gone before you arrive as will the few shrubs that are there) The front yard is pretty compact it's only 9-10m long and the zone that needs battering is about 1-2 m wide. The level difference is relatively small from 100mm to 400mm across the yard. To be honest I'm not sure how long it will take could be much less time with the excavator, do you have an hourly rate as we could also go on hourly rates? I am flexible on the day.

Glen was amazing, super friendly and professional, on time and went the extra mile with a great attitude, top bloke!
