Geovanni and his team worked extremely hard to remove all of our debris and current garden to pave the way for a new garden. They did an excellent job. We will be using Geovanni to amend the soil and plant the new garden as well. Highly recommend Geovanni and his team.

I am so relieved to have engaged Walter! I was so pleased with his initial work on my garden that I have engaged him on an ongoing basis. I have an intimate garden of about 500 sq feet with lots of plans (vines, Peruvian lilies, Kifer Lilies, Ground Gardenia, Mexican Primrose and more) and a small grass area that had not been tended to for quite a while. Walter and his brother in just a few hours got it looking pristine and healthy. He also took care of my potted plants. I have a friend who knows about these things who confirmed "clearly they know what they are doing based on how they trimmed back the plants." Walter called me right away, we quickly set up a time for him to see and quote the work and easily found a time to do the work. It was everything I would hope for from a professional home service provider. I am looking forward to his services long into the future. Thank you, Walter!

Green Touch built a vegetable garden in a small underused space in our backyard and I am SO happy with their work. I purchased the vegetables I wanted and they took care of the rest. They built the boxes from redwood so as to avoid any treated wood and they suggested that we use a fine gold sand on the ground. The space looks so great and I am looking forward to harvesting my first batch of winter veggies. I would recommend Carlos and Green Touch!

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

Anthony was very professional and trimmed my overgrown tree to a nice height and started on the rest of my yard. He cleans up and takes all clippings curbside. I look forward to working with him again. I would definitely recommend him as a dependable, reasonably priced Gardner that has a natural passion for trimming trees and gardening.

So far, Duran Landscaping has shown up on time, fixed the sprinklers, and taken care of the landscaping. We had a horrible time finding a gardening service that did what they promised to do (like stop by once a week). It seems like we finally found one.

Marin and his crew were great. He was thorough and did a great job. There were some challenging areas of the garden to deal with that he had to come back with different tools to finish. I appreciate that he did that, very professional service.

In twenty years of home ownership, this might just be my first *purely* positive experience with a major remodel. I can recommend Ruben and his team without reservation. Ruben took my yard from dirt with a few clumps of remaining weeds, to a lovely, useable space -- with a gorgeous paver patio; a lawn for dogs and kids to play in; a small area of artificial grass for the "dog bathroom;" an area ready for raised garden beds; a green screen of wax myrtle; and along two sides of the yard, a beautiful bed of hardy, colorful, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plants. He installed a couple of sprinklers in the lawn and a nice drip system in the planted area. Throughout the process, Ruben had ideas of his own but was very willing to listen -- and best of all, he used what he heard to inform his own thinking, so the ideas he offered were increasingly tailored to what he'd learned of my taste and needs. Ruben's prices are not cheap, but they are fair and clear, with no surprises. And as a bonus, he's just the nicest guy you'll ever meet, as are the men who work for him. One of them is a good carpenter, and fixed a gate that wasn't swinging properly just because he could and he knew I'd like it. I really cannot recommend this company highly enough. They offer a rare combination of integrity, expertise, and just plain niceness.

Siai did an exceptionally high quality gate and pergola for the end of my driveway which will soon be a gateway to a patio existing garden. He works alone and is therefore personally involved in the whole project. He is an honest man proud of his work as he should be. Competitive bid. Highly recommended.

I needed ideas to improve my front side yard and Edward came out right away and gave me a very competitive bid to install irrigation to connect to my existing system and put in sod, as well as topping off the bark in all the planter beds in my entire yard. Even better, he was able to start the job very quickly and finished it on time. Edward was super responsive, answered all my questions in person and via text/phone, and even put in some flowering plants (not part of the original job) for just the cost of the bags of planting soil he picked up.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.
