What should I look for in Landscaping professional?

Before you choose a landscaping professional, you could take a look for qualifications and memberships from the Association of Professional Landscaper (APL) and Government Trustmark. Garden designers hold garden design diplomas from a number of different educational establishments such as the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).

Before choosing a professional, you may also want to ask for examples of past work, which could include images of different types of landscaping that they have installed in the past. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, and Bark can show you fence and gate installation reviews from past customers too, as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas about the types of landscaping you are looking for your property.

How long does it take to Landscape my garden?

Basic landscape installation takes about one to two weeks to complete. More in-depth work such as levelling, compacting and large hardscapes may take two to three weeks.

Do I need planning permission to undertake to Landscaping?

Planning permission is not needed for most gardening and landscaping work. It's important to be aware of the rules and regulations though.

For listed buildings and in conservation areas, you may need permission to remove and install hard landscaping.

If you want to put up small detached buildings such as a garden shed or summerhouse in your back garden, building regulations will not normally apply if the floor area of the building is less than 15m² and doesn’t contain sleeping accommodation.

There are a number of benefits to landscaping your property which includes:

  • Boosting the value of your home – Landscaping is a great return on its investment and can increase the value of your home by as much as 10 per cent.
  • Giving you an artistic vision – Landscapers are great at coming up with new ideas to transform your bland garden into a place of beauty which you can relax and enjoy.
  • Plant experts – Landscapers also know how to properly take care of plants and trees. They will choose plants that are well adapted to the local weather conditions.
  • Undertaking the hard work – A professional landscaper will be able to lay the patio, decking or turf without you having to do lots of hard work.
  • Ongoing maintenance – As well as installing a new garden, landscapers can maintain the area on your behalf after it’s been completed.
  • Utilising modern tools – Landscapers use technologically advanced gardening tools and equipment that is more reliable and effective in clearing unwanted plants and thickets. These advanced tools will save time and money in the long run.

Your trusted Bark professional landscaper can offer a range of services. These include:

  • Laying patios – Patios are the perfect addition to any garden which will give you an area of extra space for your home.
  • Removing patios and replacing with lawn – A new lawn can look very attractive in your garden especially if your paving stones are old and cracking.
  • Installing decking – Timber decking is hard-wearing and has a long lifespan. A deck is also a practical choice for outdoor seating as it supports heavy weights easily without any damage.
  • Constructing raised vegetable beds – It’s a good idea to have some raised beds if you are growing vegetables.
  • Building a rockery – Small rockeries have actually become popular again due to the beautiful modern plant varieties on offer.
  • Building a shingle path – Shingle paths are quite easily laid and should be fairly inexpensive to build.
  • Building a garden pond – A small pond is a must-have for any wildlife enthusiast. There’s quite a lot of effort involved in digging out a pond so a landscaper is the perfect professional to help out.

If you’re confused about what landscaping actually is, you’re not alone! It’s easy to get it confused with gardening, gardening clearance, and garden design - all of which do overlapping things. To set the record straight, landscaping is the purpose of making a garden more attractive by changing the current design, adding different elements and features, and planting greenery such as plants, flowers, and trees.

While the work of both a gardener and landscaper certainly overlap, a gardener is more focused on maintaining the health and wellbeing of a garden by pruning, mowing, and keeping an eye on harmful pests. A landscaper is less interested in maintenance and more interested in transforming the look and shape of a garden to make it more attractive. The work of a landscaper includes building work such as patios and driveways (hard landscaping), as well as adding decorative features such as greenery and flowers (soft landscaping).

Gravel gardens are famously low-maintenance and require far less water than a standard garden. This also means that you need to be wise with the plants you choose to adorn your gravel garden. Always opt for plants that are drought-tolerant and that thrive in dry conditions. These are the likes of Euphorbias, Phlomis, and Lavender to name just a few.

If you’re a newbie to the world of garden design then you might be wondering what on earth the difference between hard landscaping and soft landscaping is! It’s actually very simple - hard landscaping includes every ‘hard’ object that makes up your garden, including bricks, stone, gravel. In contrast, soft landscaping is any ‘soft’ aspect of your garden, typically living elements like flowers, trees, grass etc. The ideal garden landscape will incorporate a healthy balance between the two elements to create an environment that is practical and comfortable, yet at one with nature. Think of it this way - hard landscaping is like the foundation and structure of a building, whereas soft landscaping is the decor and furnishings that make it look good.
