Tending to the garden and lawn is not something busy Australians have a lot of time for in their day-to-day lives. According to recent research however, we still want our gardens to look beautiful and manicured, perfect for our outdoor entertaining lifestyles.
Due to this desire, the gardening and landscaping industry is flourishing; as reported by research firm IBISWorld, industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 2.5 per cent to reach an estimated value of $3.37 billion and employ approximately 40,120 people in 10,997 businesses. Aussie families are willing to spend big when it comes to setting high-standards and maintaining landscaping gardens even their neighbours will be proud of.
The Influences Of Appearance On Market Values
The gains made by Australians on their home are not purely aesthetic. According to landscape economist John Harris, quality garden maintenance can add up to 28 per cent to a home’s overall value, while research by Clemson University Professor Mark S. Henry shows that lifting one’s gardening efforts from ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ can add a significant value of at least six to seven per cent.
Since keeping gardens and lawns looking great is of obvious importance, it is no surprise we are hiring more specialists than ever to do the job. We expect these gardens to be tended to efficiently, beautifully and for a good price; what better way for Australians to achieve this, than by having their lawns beautifully boarded and framed by customised decorative edging and kerbing.

Current Kwik Kerb business owners find owning their own business to be greatly beneficial.
Despite feeling a bit “long in the tooth”, Garry of Melbourne can still knock out between 80 to 110 metres of kerbing in a day: “I’m in the sixteenth year now, and I never thought I’d be laying concrete today and still enjoying it,” says Garry.
Chris of Sydney completed three commercial jobs in a little over two weeks, working with his team laying 1000 metres of high-profile, commercial edging.
“People ask me if I think Kwik Kerb is a good business,” says Chris. “I tell them I wish I started this fifteen years ago!”
