What is the difference between a landscaper and a landscape gardener?
A landscaper transforms outdoor spaces, managing various aspects like hardscaping and design, while a Gardener focuses on softscape like lawns and plants.
Let's take a more in depth look:
The difference between a landscaper and a landscape gardener is mainly in the scope of their expertise and the services they provide.
A landscaper is a broad term for professionals who transform outdoor spaces, managing various aspects like hardscaping, softscaping, and overall design.
Landscapers often engage in tasks beyond gardening, such as installing patios, pathways, fencing, retaining walls and water features, integrating many different elements to create a cohesive outdoor environment.

On the other hand, a landscape gardener focuses more specifically on cultivating and nurturing plants within the landscape. Their expertise revolves around plant selection, lawn and soil health, and garden aesthetics.
Landscape gardeners excel in planting, and maintaining gardens, emphasising the artistic and horticultural aspects of the outdoor space.
In essence, while a landscaper plans and designs the entire outdoor transformation, incorporating both construction and greenery, a landscape gardener dedicates their skills to the cultivation and beautification of plant life within that landscape.
At Zen Adelaide Landscaping, we do both and are your one stop resource for Landscaping in Adelaide.
Both professionals contribute distinct skills to elevate outdoor spaces, with the landscaper providing a holistic approach and the landscape gardener specialising in the artistry of plants.
You will often find Landscapers also have a keen eye for what a Gardener does, but the opposite can sometimes be harder due to certain rules, laws and licences required to do some Landscaping services, such as retaining walls.
Always check your professional has the correct licences for your required service.
