How to hire the best Sydney landscaper for your job

With the vast majority of Sydneysiders spending much of their spare time at home over the last two years, focus has returned to wanting our properties to look their very best especially our gardens. Choosing a landscape maintenance in sydney with the right kind of experience and specialities can often prove more difficult than it should be.

There are so many to choose from that finding the right person takes a little time, and a little thought. So, to make your decision a little easier we’ve put together a quick guide to finding the right landscaper for your backyard project.

Define what you want first

Whether you’re looking for a little help with standard maintenance and presentation, or a full garden redesign, the best place to start is to identify what it is you want. Are you looking for a grassed area for the kids to play on? A neat row of hedging for privacy? Or are you looking to create a sophisticated outdoor oasis reminiscent of the gardens of Versaille, complete with decking and decorative planting? 

Ask for quotes

Once you’ve worked out what it is you want done in your garden, you’re ready to start requesting quotes from landscapers. Don’t commit to working with a landscaper or Sydney landscape maintenance professional without seeing examples of their work. Here you can visit our past Civil Construction projects.

This will give you an idea of what they can do, the quality of their work and how much experience they have. If you can, try and find a landscaper who’s done similar work to your job in the past, as that’ll ensure they have the skills and equipment necessary to get it done.

Know your budget

As with any project, identifying and sticking to a budget is important. It’s easy to go overboard and regret spending so much later. So, how much do you want to spend improving your outdoor space? Be realistic about what you may be able to achieve within that budget and if the quotes you receive exceed your budget be prepared to compromise. 

How engaged are your landscapers?

The old saying Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day rings very true indeed, and the same goes with your landscaping project. Big projects can take weeks or even months to complete, so always opt for a landscaping company that prides itself on effective communication.

Do they reply to emails promptly? Are they clear about project timelines, transparent with costs and how they plan to complete your job? 

Look for experience

Always look for an experienced landscaper over someone who’s new to the profession. Generally speaking a more experienced landscaper will be better equipped to transform your garden dreams into reality. 

For that reason it’s worth asking every landscaper who quotes for your job a few questions such as: how long have you been landscaping? Have you done any jobs similar to this one? 

Find someone who can do it all

Some landscapers will only be able to handle certain parts of your job, which will mean you’ll need to hire multiple contractors to get the job done. To make your life easier, find one landscaper who can do it all, like Cirillo Civil

We handle everything from large civil construction projects to residential Sydney landscape maintenance and landscape design. That includes turfing, retaining walls, driveways, digging pools, concreting, excavation, tree removal and much more.
