After 4 years of drought our landscaping looked pretty bad. We had Valentin come and give us some ideas about converting to a drip watering system and landscaping with more drought resistant plants. Valentin and his landscaping staff came up with some excellent ideas. We approved, they went to work and the finished product is better than ever dreamed. Valentin worked with us every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and give us good ideas.

David was on time for the two jobs I requested him for. He went above and beyond with the lawn care making sure the weeds were done, the bushes trimmed and he did an excellent job cleaning up a messy side yard that hadn't been cared for in months. We have hired him now on a regular basis due to his great work. Highly recommend.

The gardeners did a great job in pulling out a massive amount of weeds from my backyard and trimmed the plants. The job was well done and my husband and I were very satisfied with the results.

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!

Highly recommend!! Rene totally transfomed our yard, and put in 4 very long days to get it done. His team is extremely professional and respectful of our home, took their time and went above and beyond what we expected from a lawn care team. Installed new storm drainage, rebuilt part of our fence, and fixed a old irrigation system -- all on time and for a fair price. They even called us to let us know we'd overpayed (added up receipts incorrectly) and offered to drive over with a refund. We're very happy to have found this team!

Miguel, Luis and team did an fantastic job at our new place. We wanted to get started with landscaping and maintenance but had to clean up the yard that had a lot of outgrowth, poison ivy, tall grass etc. Their quote was not the lowest but the most knowledgeable as they scoped it correctly. Miguel was in contact through the process and was sure to only eliminate the bad species. We are considering hiring them ongoing maintenance as well

LiveNeighborly’s gardening service is awesome. This is the future of gardening: I get recommendations and photos after every service, can manage my account online and I pay by credit card. I like that they just take care of everything and I don’t need to worry about my yard anymore. Plus, when I do want something special done, it’s super easy to add a task with photos and they take care of it on their next visit. And I’m happy to say that it’s affordable. They are doing an great job so far and definitely recommend them.

I was extremely happy about Mowers N' Blowers work for my yard renovation. After purchasing a new home, there is nothing more frustrating than seeing weed continuously growing and garbage piling up in my yard during interior renovation process. Nick and his team provided me with a quote of the best value and provided many suggestions and insights. They listened to my requirements carefully and the final results are stunning. They worked over the weekends in a very efficient and timely manner. Their work is super clean and high quality. They demolished the old concrete, spread and compacted decomposed granite, and installed pavers and rocks/pebbles. They also helped us plant new trees and were knowledgeable on their care and maintenance. Mowers N' Blowers is truly a one-stop shop for any yard work. Now that the yard furniture has moved in, it has truly become a dream come true for my wife and me.

Jerry did a great job repairing a broken sprinkler pipe in my lawn. He contacted me soon after I posted on Thumbtack, came by and quoted the job, then showed up when he said he would to do the work. The area where the work was done was left clean and the system once again works great. I highly recommend All Season for any type of lawn care or landscaping work.

Bin Hi (Quick Lawn Care) was simply amazing. I needed one fence panel replaced quickly and Bin fixed it the next day. I asked him to color match the panel and he came back and replaced the piece promptly with no questions asked. Bin is a very professional gentleman who knows how to get the job done. I did not have to meet him to get the repair done. He went on site and fixed it without causing any disturbance to to my normal schedule. Bin has certainly earned all of my future business for related work. Highly recommended.

Working with Angel was fantastic. He was very prompt with his quote and setting up a time to look at my yard. He was able to set up a time less than a week later to get the work done, arrived on time, and charged what he said he would. The yard was a tough job, ivy vines climbing over the fence and winding through all the plants and across the ground, plants to be dug out, dead tree to remove, it was basically a disaster area and now look neat and clear. I highly recommend him.

Johnny Davis is the person who got me started in gardening and plant care. I have some rare and unique plants and trees that he gave me 30 years ago. I have since been out on my own, but working with him and learning about caring for yard plants made me quite successful. Rehabbing yard plants and trees is quite different from just planting, and this is one of his specialties. Sometimes older plantings have been just sheared and become leggy or too big. Many older plants need to be repaired. It takes an artist who is a knowledgable plant person to transition a neglected yard to a well tended yard without lopping everything off and starting over.

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.

What a great partner in creating a natural, beautiful landscape! He is a terrific listener and very knowledgeable about what to plant where and when and how to create a cohesive, thriving garden. He is also working with me on a small construction project for my yard. I recommend highly!

Good service! Juan was very responsive, and was able to come the next day. Juan and his son came and they both cleaned my backyard, took out the weeds and trimmed the plants. It was nicely done. Would use them again.

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.
