Whether you are a first-timer or a novice, it’s no secret that landscaping a garden can be an extremely difficult task.
Above all the logistics, time and money it takes, there’s a lot at stake, as a poorly manicured garden can look sloppy, unprofessional, and could potentially diminish the value of your property when it comes time to sell.
Luckily for beginners, that’s where professional landscape gardeners come in.
A professional landscape gardener will come armed with all the necessary tools, on-the-job experience, and plenty of specialised skills that will ensure your garden is perfectly designed, and that your design plans are perfectly executed.
But finding the perfect landscape gardener within Perth and surrounds is no easy feat. So, we’ve done the hard work for you. Here’s our guide on how to find the best local landscape gardeners – specifically, in the suburbs of Secret Harbour, Rockingham and Baldivis.
Step one: Decide what specific landscaping services you’ll need
Before you begin the hunt for your perfect professional landscaper, create a list of all the services you’ll require them to provide. If you’re unsure of where to start, look at the big picture – does this project involve a small bit of garden maintenance, or a complete overhaul of your garden? Do you feel comfortable with upkeep once the garden is finished, or would you prefer to book regular maintenance sessions with your landscaping team?
Step two: Set your ideal budget
Once you have a realistic overview of the services you’ll require, it’s time to set a budget. Understandably, this may be stretched in some way once you find your ideal landscaper, so think of this as your first draft, or your ‘ideal’ budget before you start consulting local professionals.
Step three: Do your research
If this is your first foray into the landscaping world, start small when it comes to research. Chat to family or friends who live in the same area as you, and keep an ear out for recommendations of local landscaping gardeners who have completed great work for homes around yours.
Then, head online to do some more thorough research. This may be through social media or search engines, just remember that no matter which avenue you conduct this research through, that customer reviews are some of the most valuable indicators of a landscaping company’s performance and reputation within your local community.
Step four: Contact local landscaping companies, then make your final decision
Once you have a shortlist compiled, contact a few local landscapers and chat through your list of desired services. This is the best way to get a grasp on whether they’ll be the right fit for your job.
Once you have a good idea of what each company can offer, it’s time to make a decision.
