  • We do it ourselves but have no objection to anyone hiring someone to look after their yard if they have the finances.


  • I don’t have a huge outdoor garden, but I’m lucky that I have my father who does it as a hobby anyway, helping others too. I like getting in the garden (when it’s not freezing cold and/or raining) and weeding or planting as a way to relax. Mowing though, I’ve never tried, unless you count those push ones on a stick from decades ago.


  • Hiring is good for those that can afford it. The rest of us just have to plod along on our own


  • I’m not a huge garden show off. We have a veggie patch and hothouse, a berry patch and lemon tree. Surrounded by lots of lawn and then the bush. So tranquil and beautiful…….why would I want to ruin it with landscaping???


  • I studied horticulture and landscaping so I’m in charge of the garden at our place. Its really starting to all grow in now and looking fantastic.


  • We have a mix of landscaping and our own gardening ideas but don’t get much time to design/ develop more of the yard at the moment.


  • We had a landscaper come and do our backyard. He put up a new retaining wall, concrete paths, sandpit with a slide from the retaining wall, planter boxes for our veggie patch and a few other things. It cost a lot of money but it was worth it. We love our backyard now. Definitely increased the property value but we don’t care about that at the moment.


  • Maybe setting up a new area but to most people this would be a cost they could not keep up with. Love my outside time and so do most of my children.


  • I just find this expensive and could not afford


  • It isn’t ONLY landscaping companies that can achieve this. Anyone with a green thumb can create and maintain a peaceful landscape. I love my outside time.


  • Sounds great but some of the services are too expensive for the average household to afford


  • This is good to keep in mind thank you.


  • If you are having your lawn professionally planted, don’t be fooled it you are told plants such as buffalo or Kikuya are not aggressive growers. Those that are hybrids and supposed to be non-aggressive can become aggressive later. Kikuya can actually run underground and come up several metres away – from one property to 1/2 across the neighbour’s yard. There was a double width driveway thext to the adjoining fence on the property the kikuya was planted on. I personally. A section had to be poisoned because it came up in a join between the house foundation and concrete path half way across the back of the house,


  • I agree with all this, but it ignores that cost is a real factor for many people.


  • It sounds great but these services don’t come cheaply.
