Factors Affecting Cost in Landscaping Jobs

Getting an accurate quote using our Get a Quote feature is the only way to avoid these cost pitfalls. We’ve highlighted some below so you are aware.

  • Quantity of softscaping (less expensive), versus hardscaping (more expensive).
  • Design factors including garden size, earth quality, project scope, complexity, yard condition, climate, and input delays.
  • Soil and irrigation factors including soil fertility, testing, nutrient addition, topsoil replacement, water requirements, and climate impact on water supply.
  • Quantity and type of plants used in the design.
  • Hardscaping costs have increased due to the rising cost of concrete, which has doubled in some areas of Australia due to recent supply chain issues.
