What is a Professional Landscaper & What Do They Do?

4 min read

Probably we all have attempted to “do” our own garden only to find that it took longer than expected and certainly the results were not what we strived for! I don’t know how many homeowners gave up the idea of self-help and have agreed to get help from professionals. However, I assume there are perhaps two reasons that inspire homeowners to invent their own garden rather than seeking the help of a professional. Either they think the professional service would be outrageously expensive or they worry about the risk of being hoodwinked by a “cowboy” landscaper. However, the first factor is actually delusional and this fear can be eliminated if you do a detailed study. It might surprise you that hiring a professional landscaper can actually save you money.  The second factor is addressed in this blog so you can identify who are professional landscapers in Sydney and can exclude the risk of being fooled. 


Who is a professional landscaper

A professional landscaper is someone who plays a crucial role in rectifying the aesthetic appeal of your house. With the blend of their love for the ‘soil & water’ and knowledge of ‘plants & lush,’ they construct a gardening layout that is more specialised, more interesting and more alluring. They possess a set of landscaping skills as well as are trained to design a garden that reflects your personal taste and preferences. Future it also gives an outline of their ages of experience. 

They are hired to work on all aspects of the garden setting. From lawn to a flower bed, selecting shrubs to construct pathways, building fences to rockeries and everything in between. They deal with all the needs of your garden. Their role encompasses a list of many potential components such as: preparing the ground, raking, weeding, mowing, fertilising, irrigating, digging, mulching, pruning and selecting plants. 

Prominent landscapers will understand the weather conditions hence they help to select certain flowers, plants, trees and shrubs which can thrive well in the area. Further, they have an insight into designing a garden that can impact the environment and its wildlife. They know the strategies to attract more birds, bees to a garden area as well as give the right advice on composting and mulching. 


What sorts of jobs do they do?
