Gardens and Lawns

Your expert garden contractors

From compact urban courtyards to manicured country lawns and everything in between, there are so many different types of garden. Most of us want our garden to achieve a number of different functions including offering us a relaxing place to sit back, an entertaining space, swimming, family enjoyment or offering us the pleasure we get from tending the garden and growing plants ourselves.

But where do you start? Whether you’ve inherited a garden that’s bigger than you’ve had before or you have the blank canvas of a new garden, starting and then maintaining a garden can be a daunting task 

When you choose a garden contractor, you’re looking for someone with the professional expertise to work with you and guide you through the steps to achieve and sustain the garden that you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

Garden contractors create, refurbish and maintain outdoor spaces and gardens by designing and landscaping with the planting of trees, flowers, shrubs and lawns and constructing hard landscaping such as paths, decks, water features and outdoor living areas. Maintaining a garden in a manageable and healthy condition is the key element of a garden contractor’s role once the overall design and construction is complete.


A garden contractor can be employed at any stage of a garden’s life from inception and garden landscape design to maintenance and ongoing upkeep. A good garden contractor will understand your local area, its soil type, the ways you use your garden and your needs.


When looking for a garden contractor it’s important to be clear what scope of work you’re interested in and have a full understanding the services they offer and the prices they charge for each different garden service.

There are a lot of factors that will influence how much garden design will cost, primarily the size and scope of the project. A small suburban garden with simple planting, fencing and design will start at around $1,000. For larger gardens and more complex projects involving walls, water features, lighting, vertical gardens, decks, patios and paths, these will start around $5,000.


Garden maintenance of a front and back garden, lawn mowing, rubbish removal and general upkeep is usually charged by the hour and will vary from business to business.

Having a functional and beautiful garden will add value to your house. Prospective purchasers will be more attracted to a house with a well maintained and attractive garden than one with a garden that’s overgrown and out of control.


A garden that’s been designed in keeping with the style and size of house will appeal to potential buyers. Large gardens that require a lot of maintenance and looking after might put a few people off as they can be a bit too daunting.


What’s important is to design a garden that suits you and your lifestyle so you can enjoy it while it’s your home. Regular maintenance by an expert garden contractor will keep your garden in perfect condition.

Understanding the difference between a landscaper, gardener and gardening contractor is key to deciding which you need.

  1. A landscaper will design (or redesign) a garden from start to finish including all hard and soft landscaping elements.

  2. A gardener will maintain or bring back to life an existing garden and keep it healthy and productive. 

  3. A garden contractor will have all of these skills combined.

All three professionals should have an in-depth understanding of horticulture and plant life.


The types of services on offer from each provider will differ too. A landscaper is equipped for designing and building garden projects while a gardener will have the tools and skills for planting and maintaining a garden.


As well as garden landscape design and construction, a professional garden contractor will offer the following services:

  1. Lawn mowing and maintenance

  2. Front yard upkeep

  3. Weeding and pruning

  4. Rubbish removal

  5. Maintaining hard landscaping in good condition

  6. Planting and replanting

  7. Maintenance of a vegetable garden

  8. Maintenance of a vertical garden

  9. Hedge cutting


Over time, your garden contractor will become a friend to both you and your garden.
