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.

Landscaping and planting


Coburg VIC 3058, Australia

13th Mar 2022

Hi, We’re after a quote for some simple landscaping and planting in our backyard perimeter. Most trees have been cleared already, except as shown. There’s some blue stone to remove too. We want to start from scratch. We want to achieve: * new edging in something like oxyshield steel around the perimeter (1m garden beds). I’d estimate roughly 3 x 15m * renewed soil in garden beds * planting of screening trees like Lilly pillies, golden canes or clumping bamboo around perimeter. We can discuss whether you supply the trees on reimbursement basis, or we get them for you to plant. * planting along part of the deck face potentially * removal of the hills hoist clothes line and a new folding clothes line installed in-ground in the perimeter. We will supply new clothes line. No turf required at the moment, we’re just doing the perimeter in preparation for a pool in future. We have drive through access to the back yard - but any heavy machinery will need to be careful on the new driveway, by laying plastic or covering. Please have insurance and your own tools and dispose of all rubbish and green waste, rocks etc. Thanks!

Yegon totally transformed our back yard - removed all bluestone and cement garden edging, laid new edging, sourced and planted new plants, mulch and even a new clothes line. He worked with us every step of the way and communicated really well. Super happy all round.
