  • Small Residential Projects: Small projects, such as installing a garden bed or a small patio, may cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 or more.
  • Medium-Sized Projects: Projects that involve moderate changes, such as redesigning a backyard with new features and plants, can range from $5,000 to $20,000 or more.
  • Large-Scale Projects: Extensive projects, including comprehensive outdoor living spaces, can cost upwards of $20,000 to $50,000 or more, depending on the scope and materials.
  • Custom or High-End Projects: Custom designs, premium materials, and intricate features can significantly increase costs, with some high-end projects exceeding $100,000.
  • Maintenance: Regular maintenance services typically cost between $50 to $150 per hour, depending on the extent of the work required.

How long does a landscaping project take?

The duration of the project can vary widely based on several factors, including the complexity of the project, the size of the area to be landscaped, weather conditions, and the availability of materials and labour. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Small Residential Projects: Simple projects for small residential properties, such as installing a garden bed or a small patio, can often be completed in a few days to a week.
  2. Medium-Sized Projects: Projects that involve a moderate amount of changes, like redesigning a backyard with new features and plants, may take anywhere from several weeks to a few months.
  3. Large-Scale Projects: For extensive projects, such as creating a comprehensive outdoor living space or completely overhauling a large property, the timeline can range from several months to a year or more.
  4. Weather Considerations: Weather conditions, especially in Brisbane’s subtropical climate, can impact the project timeline. Heavy rain, for example, may cause delays in earthwork and planting.
  5. Permitting and Approvals: The time required to obtain necessary permits and approvals can also affect the project schedule.
  6. Custom Design: If the project involves custom design work, additional time may be needed for planning and design revisions.
