Zak is the gardener I have been searching for for years!! I have a huge lot with an established (over-grown garden - both front & back of the house). Previous gardener moved on to larger clients, and since last october 2019 I haven't had any help. I have been searching for someone with a strong work ethic, who loves what they do, a keen sense of design and aesthetics, and works effectively and efficiently to get the project done in the timeframe allotted. Zak did all that and more! Zak responded to my initial query within minutes of sending my email, and we scheduled a time for us to meet to discuss the project and cost. He did not charge me for the estimate and was generous with his time. I'm certain we spent over an hour outside, discussing each plant and ways he could improve or enhance the garden. He listened to my concerns and instructions with respect and attention - and I immediately knew that we would work well together. Zak is soft-spoken with a quiet nature but he works with rigor and care at the same time. Yesterday he worked for 7-1/2 hrs. He got here exactly at 9am, took a 1/2 hr. break for lunch (not on the clock), and left at 5pm - all as planned. Within that time, he got the major bulk of the work done, and it was done with detailed care - including raking, sweeping, and clean-up. I have hired Zak to come once every two weeks to maintain both gardens and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend this talented and warm young man.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
