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.
