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.

I met with Sara a few days ago and am impressed enough to sign up for their services. Sara was pleasant and understanding as I railed on and on about the problems I was having with my current gardening services. She appeared to understand a homeowner's frustration with being treated like a number and assured me that their team take pride in their work. I look forward to working with them and seeing my garden thrive to its full potential.

Valentin was the first to respond and scheduled a prompt appointment to come out and look at our broken sprinkler system. Two previous landscapers said it couldn't be fixed or would require tracking down an expensive part. At our estimate appointment, Valentin said he could fix it on the spot -- and he did, in just a few hours and for a rate that literally saved us thousands of dollars. We were so pleased with the work, price and his punctuality, that we are now hiring him to install some new sod and put footprints around our trees. I would recommend Valentin any day of the week.

Walter is very nice and walked me through his gardening process. He was more than willing to negotiate on price and his team cleaned up my yard in less than one day. It is pristine now. Great company, don't hesitate to hire them.

Gustavo just finished fences and gate in my Fremont home. He is new in having his own business but has a lot of experiences from working for a big company. He was so easy to work with and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him. He is THE BEST contractor I have ever seen.

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.

Ricardo and his crew are very knowledgeable and gave great advice in designing our backyard patio and garden area. They incorporated all of the design elements we wanted, and got the job done in a timely manner. Ricardo and his crew are courteous, professional, and communicated well with us. After the job was finished, they cleaned up and left the area job site as clean as when they first arrived. We are very pleased with our new backyard living area. We highly recommend RM Landscaping.

Saia recently replaced my side fence and I absolutely loved the outcome. The quality of his work is so good that we are going to ask him to replace the other side fence as well. He is a hard working and experienced pro and I definitely recommend him to whoever needs help with construction work. Saia's dedication is outstanding. He visited 4 5 home depots in the south bay area to pick the right wood for our fence, and stayed on site until past 8 pm to keep his word and finish the work which is really impressive. It was a pleasure getting to know him and working with him.

Enrique showed up on time and went above and beyond for the extensive one-time weeding project I hired him for. Not only did he beautifully clear the areas we discussed he also cleared a few additional small areas and also cleared all the weeds in the sidewalk/walkways/driveway edges. He even edged the yard while he was there. Everything was left immaculately clean after he was done. I've decided to hire him for bi-weekly lawn maintenance as I was so thoroughly impressed with his timeliness, responsiveness, fair prices and high quality work.

I had mulch added in the backyard and a number of plants in the front. Everything looked great and the men did work as expected. The price was very reasonable to say the least. They showed up on time and got right to work. Will hire again as I have another project coming.

I have known Duenas Landscaping for about nine years. I contacted them from a business card they left in my mail box one day. I tried them on cutting three trees in my backyard and I was totally satisfied and impressed. They cleaned up afterwards and hauled away the debris as agreed. I gave them another job later on in my front yard(re-paving my driveway, changing my car-port supports and landscaping). My neighbors were so impressed they asked me if I would recommend them. I did not hesitate to do. NOw, at least five of my neighbors have used Duenas Landscaping, some on a regular weekly basis. I would NOT hesitate to recommend them for any landscaping projects. They are reliable, trustworthy and clean. Manuel Duenas, the owner, is one good individual and a very honest person. You can call me for reference any time. Ray C. Belmont (591-3063)

Anselmo was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He had great ideas and helped us think of creative solutions for making our sloped yard more useable. On start day, he brought a full crew and was very efficient in getting the bulk of our project done in just a few days. At one point in the project, a mistake was discovered in some measurements taken and despite the work already being done, Anselmo immediately took responsibility and fixed the problem by redoing it. It is wonderful to work with someone so smart, hard-working, and trustworthy and we will be sure to use him again for any of our landscaping needs in the future!

Very happy with the service and highly recommended :) . Elvis started weeding/gardening in our moderately large front and back yard. The difference was pleasantly noticeable right away. He was prompt, offered helpful suggestions, and responded well to our requests and concerns. Looking forward to continue working with him, and a garden much improved!

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

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.
