We are planning on building a 2 story house on Melbourne's east. The land is approx 735sqm. I understand the cost of landscaping varies depending on what you want. However, just wondering if anyone could offer a ball park price on what we would expect to pay if we wanted to landscape the front yard and back yard. Also, any recommendations on landscape companies in Melbourne?

There is a huge range on what landscaping would cost depending mainly on what hard landscaping you need.
Do you need a driveway? Pool? Paving? Pergola? Decking? Screening plants? Retaining walls? Drainage? Excavation? These will all dramatically influence the price of your landscaping.
Also the size of plants that you use. This is an easy area to save money, simply use smaller plants...they will grow into larger plants in time.

Normally all hardscaping (decking, paths, raised garden beds etc) is done first then landscaping last. Just make sure any prelays are in place for electrical or water.
