How to set a budget for your project

Designing a landscape that suits your home, as well as your budget, is an important part of home ownership. Without careful planning it’s easy to watch your landscaping budget get away from you. When you start thinking about what you want and what it might cost, it’s important to remember an investment in professional landscaping will greatly add to the value of your home.

Effective budgeting is more than just planning. As a responsible homeowner you’ll want to monitor the budget closely and be conscious of the investment you’re making, regardless of who is actually performing the work. Make sure you build in some flexibility wherever possible to ensure your landscape project can handle the unexpected. Depending on the size of the land and the complexity of the design, a landscaping budget doesn’t need to be lengthy, but it should be detailed enough to be reasonably accurate.

Don’t be afraid to share this info with us – it’s better to envision and create a design to meet your budget, than to be scared away by a higher quote, out of your budget. We’re here to help you!

Excavator & Bobcat Loader Operations

We can take care of all the prep work for your backyard construction and transformation with excavator and bobcat operations. We use an E20 2T Excavator and 110 Tracked Bobcat, and can operate in narrow or tight access.

Bark Blowing

If you need mulch for your garden or soft bark chips for your play area, we can install it in bulk in hard-to-reach places to save you time and money.

Silt Fencing

For effective and simple erosion control on sloped blocks or areas prone to washing away, we do silt fencing with woven fabric and hardwood stakes. You’ll be able to create tiered garden beds easily without worrying about rain washing away plants, soil and mulch or barkchips.

Concreting

There are a lot of concrete options available to match your space – we do colours, stencils, patterns and stains so you can choose something that matches your taste, space and lifestyle.

Garden Edging

For a functional finishing touch that subtly structures your garden, try garden edging. We do steel edging (using mild steel, galvanised steel or Coreten steel), paver edging, spade edging and timber edging.

Lighting & Electrical

Lighting your outdoor space is only limited by your imagination. Lighting can transform an entertaining space and highlight your backyard features. We install high quality lights including dusk to dawn sensors for a space that seamlessly adapts to your lifestyle.

Artificial Turf Prep & Installation

Artificial turf technology has improved significantly, with a large range of realistic turf on the market. We excavate your space, compact the base, install sand and turf for a low maintenance turf option with a range of styles, colours and piles available.

Can’t get on top of your garden? We can lay down the foundations for your garden to thrive over the long term. We do rotary & ripping hoeing, soil testing & use of organics, gypsum and slow release fertilisers.

Lawn Seeding & Aeration

We seed Fescue, Couch, Rye Grass and Kikuyu lawn. Our Hydroseeding method can assist with rapid growth and long-term establishment.

Water features and waterfalls are a beautiful focal point in an outdoor space, bringing tranquility to a backyard. We create in-ground and above ground water features and ponds using stone, concrete, stainless steel & copper.

To give your outdoor space some structure and create rooms in your garden for exploring and entertaining, we do arbors, archways and patios of any size. Choose painted steel for a grand, polished finish or rusted steel for a sophisticated, industrial finish.

Our expert team have built thousands of metres of retaining wall for happy homeowners. Using timber, concrete sleepers, stone, stacked block or Bessa block, you can achieve whichever style of wall you have in mind for your backyard transformation.
