Best Landscapers In Canberra

Whether you’d like to improve your home’s curb appeal before listing it for sale, or want to transform your backyard into a private oasis, a professional landscaper can help.

When done right, landscaping both looks great and increases the value of your property. The problem is that not everyone has the time, skills or inclination to spend their weekends digging holes, moving dirt, and turning their vision into a reality.

A landscaper can help you at every stage of the landscaping process, from the initial planning stage through to completion. They know how to maximise space, what plants will thrive in which areas, and how to select the perfect colour palette.

If you’re on the hunt for a landscaper in Canberra that you can trust, you’ve landed in the right place. These are the local companies that can do it all – from small-scale projects to total renovations.

Let’s take a closer look.

What makes a great landscaper?

There’s no denying that landscaping is a challenging gig. It takes a true professional to create an outdoor space that is functional, thrives in Canberra’s climate and looks fantastic.

But what qualities separate a great landscaper from an average one? Here are a few characteristics to keep in mind.

  • Knowledge. Look for a landscaper with extensive knowledge across horticulture, design and garden maintenance. Your chosen landscaper, for example, should be able to recommend and plant particular species of grasses, trees and shrubs suited to the local environment.
  • Friendly, respectful, and professional attitude. As with any customer-facing job, the best in the landscaping business treat their customers with respect and get the job done to a professional standard. They respond to queries quickly, send quotes promptly and keep you informed as the project progresses.
  • Passionate. In many ways, landscaping is an art form. Look for a landscaper who is passionate about creating beautiful outdoor spaces that can be enjoyed for years to come.
  • Prompt. Working with a landscaper will take time. That being said, your chosen landscaper should be realistic about timeframes, keep you informed of any delays and work hard to ensure that your project is finished on time.
  • Shared vision. Opt for a landscaper who has a similar style to you, and who shares your vision for the landscaping project. Does the landscaper seem on the same level as you? Do you like previous projects they’ve worked on?

Landscaping is crazy expensive in Canberra. Have a few days off work, put on a bbq and beers and get all your friends around for a backyard blitz. It will cost literally 1/10th the price and be a better job?

Its not just Landscaping thats crazy expensive in Canberra, in fact everything has the Canberra prremium built into its cost. Mind you it does take a bit of cash to keep a business flowing smoothly.

Furthermore i was facinated by the last series of House Rules, if you listened carefully you could pick up onthe tradesman rates – I was surprised when i heard the chippy break down that bathroom in the Tassie place. $150 bucks an hour plug GST for the apprentice. MMMM made me think, thats up there near canberra prices so maybe its just the way it is in Australia nowadays.

Just be careful. For some reason there are tonnes of people running around Canberra pretending to be Landscapers, when in fact they are not.

I am thinking they started out mowing lawns and then stared doing landscaping jobs without realising they needed TAFE training and certification as well as Licensing.

Pick someone who is Registered, Licenced, Holds a relevant Trade Qualification (Statement of Attainment or Competancy from a Registered Training Organisation), who has an ABN, and hold personal and professional liability insurance.

There is alot of money in landscaping so make sure you get a quality job.

Heres a link to those licensed in Canberra.
