What do landscape gardeners do?
Landscapers can cover a range of activities from fully designing a garden from scratch to helping fine tune ideas customer may already have. Depending on the level of change to a garden, which a design may bring will determine the activities of a landscape gardener to bring that deign to fruition. Landscaping consists of both hard and soft landscaping. Most hard landscaping will involve a team of landscapers moving, fitting, placing hard - non living items into a garden. Examples can be fitting of a fence, a new patio, a section of decking, artificial grass, pergolas, creating a rockery section, water feature or raised beds where ground levels are changed to provide different depths and heights to a garden, which can provide different plants, scrubs and trees - the soft landscaping items, with a different background to flourish from. Making a garden more visually interesting and appealing. In the autumn and winter we often manage gardens to tend and keep them tidy ready for spring and summer. Activities such as feeding, clearing and pruning at the right time, in the right way, can make a massive difference to the growth and flowering of plants the following spring, summer and right through to autumn.
How much do landscape gardeners cost?
This all depends on what activities you require your landscape gardeners to carry out on your behalf and whether you choose to procure certain items, all or non of the items which will feature in your new garden design or whether you leave that to us. As with any service, charges will depend on the time spent completing any task. We typically like to discuss your budget and what, if any aspects of the landscaping job you may want to do yourself.
