What changes the cost of a Landscape Gardener?
Like we mentioned earlier, the cost of landscaping is dependent on a lot of factors.
These factors are;
Living in Liverpool, you can expect a competitive local market rate for landscaping, but not as high as you’d pay if you were living in London.
- Garden Design
You obviously want your garden to look as you’d want it! The landscaper’s job is to carry out your vision for your garden, making sure to use the right materials, the right measurements and plant the right flowers.
So, the grander and more complex your vision for your garden is, the more it would cost to execute it. For instance, what it would cost to mow your law and prune some flowers is far different from what it would cost to install custom decking and create a garden from scratch.
The following table gives a fixed price breakdown of different services we offer with regards to executing your vision for your garden.
|Garden Feature||Labour Cost|
|Installation of artificial grass (102m)||£350 – £2000|
|Installation of a pond||£200 – £900|
|Installation of decking||£500 – £2100|
- Garden Size
The rule here is simple; the bigger your garden, the more you’d have to pay for landscaping it

New Patio Cost
A patio is a way for you to diversify your garden’s usefulness, and it can also serve as an area for you to spend time with your family and receive friends and guests. Another wonderful thing with patios is that there is a wide range of materials that can be used in the construction, and patio designs can take different styles to match your home.
There are two main factors that determine the cost of paving patio;
- The material the patio is constructed with
- The size of the patio
So, to calculate the total cost of a patio, find out the paving cost per square metre, and multiply it by the total area of the patio.
However, the figures we have indicated will often vary greatly based on the material you use and some additional key factors.
The following are the different types of patio materials and the cost you should prepare to pay to construct them. (All prices are in paving cost per square metre)
This is the cheapest option you can get for patios, but cheap prices do not mean cheap output. Not with us at the Liverpool Landscaping Paving Services. We will ensure your concrete patios are laid expertly and to the highest quality standards.

Brick patios bring a certain stylish look to your home that can only be achieved by using bricks. The possibilities for the patterns are endless.
The cost for laying brick patios is £40 – £50.
Slab patios are stylish and elegant patios that are constructed using the formation of different types of stone slabs. As a result, they are among the pricier options for patio construction.
The cost for laying slab patios range from £20 – £30 for budget slabs, £45 – £50 for decent slabs and £75 and above for the more expensive and stylish slabs.
Labour Costs for Laying Patios
The day rate for landscapers laying patios for you is between £150 – £200.
New Decking Cost
Decking and a patio have basically the same functions, but the use of wood in decking is what makes it distinct.
There are generally three types of materials used for decking; hardwood, composite and pine. All three have different prices per square metre.
Remember also that the cost of a new decking also has to include labour costs, and the more complicated your design is, the higher the labour cost is.
To calculate the total cost of the decking, find out the decking cost per square metre, and multiply it by the total area of the decking.
The following table gives a detailed breakdown of what we charge for the installation of new decking.
|Price per square metre||£20||£75||£120|
The day rate of our decking professionals is £150 – £200.
Laying Turf Cost (Real Grass and Artificial)
Just like decking and patios, determining the total cost of laying the turf, either real grass or artificial grass, is calculated by multiplying the cost of turf per square metre by the total area of your lawn.
The following table gives a breakdown of how we charge for installing an artificial lawn on your property.
|Lawn size (per square metre)||Turf Cost||Other materials||Installation costs||Estimated total|
