Landscapers, or those whom identify as one, can provide a lot of useful services for those with neither the time nor inclination to manage their own gardens. These services range from basic maintenance services such as lawn care, hedge trimming and weeding, to more top-end services such as garden design.

Really, landscapers can be broken down into two different categories, the maintenance workers, or ‘cleaners’, and garden designers.

For garden maintenance services what you want is a good price for some weekly or fortnightly maintenance work on your garden.

For design services you need to have a proper design plan, to get all of garden furniture you’ll need, and source all of the plants necessary to complete the design. All of this can end up being very expensive, particularly for the high end providers. Of course, it goes without saying that the price will also vary based upon how extensive your requirements are.
