I hired Greener Bay to plant 13 of my new plants in my front garden. I found the work to be good but very expensive. The work was completed within a few hours by one person.

Valentin was incredibly responsive on a holiday weekend. He came out within one day of our posting the project to give us an estimate and ended up spending more than an hour with us, helping to map out our irrigation system. He returned when promised and found and repaired all the leaks, including one that was underneath concrete and had been slowly leaking into our basement. His rates were very reasonable. He was polite and patient as we peppered him with questions. We'd hire him again without hesitation and would highly recommend him.

Gustavo was great in following up for the job that he quoted and very enthusiastic about his work. He shows up at the time that you tell him to and will go at any extent to get it done. He will provide samples to show you any examples. I would recommend him to anyone looking for their yard work.

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.

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.

Excellent Job! Marin was very professional, fair, and prompt. He listened to and delivered on everything I asked for, and did not insist on adding any extra work to stay within budget. He was early on the job and although it started raining halfway, he powered through and finished on time! I would hire him again for my next gardening project. Definitely five stars!

Saia repaired our vine covered, seriously leaning fence ahead of schedule and expertly. We did not want to replace it, so he found a way to repair and reset in cement two posts without damaging our foliage. It's standing tall now. He was professional and prompt.

Adam is fantastic to work with. He's very patient and pays a lot of attention to details. I had the same job done two years ago by someone else and Adam definitely did a much much job than the other company I used last time. I'm definitely going to call him for all my gardening projects.

Bill helped us with our new house. We are less knowledgeable about gardening given we're first time home owners - but he patiently explained our options and gave a very competitive estimate. He finished the job within the quoted time and price. Our place looks great now because of his help! We highly recommend using him

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.
