What do landscapers do?

The jobs landscapers will do overlap somewhat with the jobs gardeners do – though there are some key differences. Gardeners will tend to concentrate more on the plants and their health, placement, and maintenance. They can carry out some “soft” landscaping jobs like turfing, laying down ornamental paths and setting up flower beds. However, they won’t generally be involved in heavy-duty building jobs like building a patio, garden pond or installing permanent decking. These are the jobs you will hire a landscaper for. But, can’t you do it yourself? Perhaps! Here are some tips on when to hire a landscaper:

Why should you hire a landscaper?

You may be thinking “can’t I just do lots of this stuff by myself?”, and for good reason. If you don’t know what it takes to become a landscape designer or architect, there’s no way you could know what value they could bring. Here are the reasons people hire landscapers:

  • Get a quality service

Professional landscapers have the skills and expertise from years of experience and training. They will do the best possible job, especially if you choose the right one. This often means hiring a local landscaper who has experience with your particular climate and local materials. They will also be able to offer you expert advice that no-one else can, due to their particular skill set.

  • Save time, hassle and money

With a landscaper, you will receive a set budget and plan. This will allow you to plan your own finances accordingly and be better prepared for the full consequences of the project at hand. Their expert advice will save you considerable hassle in finding materials and inspiration for your job. Plus you could save money on watering with their advice since they know which plants demand less water or care!


  • Good planning and project management

Good landscape architects know your local area, so will be able to plan for your particular weather. This could help you to avoid dead plants in the future, flooding, and even frost and overheating. They will be able to manage the project effectively so you get the outcome you desire in a reasonable timeframe. Of course, you have to choose the right one but that’s up to you!

Why is landscaping important?

Why should you consider landscaping your garden in the first place? Here are a few good reasons…

  • Maximising the value of your property

By having a glorious garden, you could significantly increase the value of your property, and prospective buyers will be more impressed with the house in general if it has a pretty, usable garden. This may reduce the time your home spends on the market, meaning less hassle for you!

  • Increasing energy efficiency in your home

By using trees in an intelligent way (which landscapers know how to do), you could help your home to be warmer in the winter and to retain coolness better in the summer. This is no small consideration, and could save you money on your energy bills when done well!

  • Bringing you more satisfaction & happiness

Having an amazing garden will increase the time you spend outdoors which will boost your happiness – seeing aesthetically pleasing natural scenes has been proven to make us happier, with the added benefit of vitamin D! You can also choose to have a completely new, low-maintenance garden to save headaches and hassle if you don’t enjoy taking care of your garden.
