Chris & his assistant did a fabulous job! I had a side yard full of junk: outdoor furniture, garden hoses, pottery; mounds of potting soil. In just an hour, he had loaded his truck, covered it with a tarp and raked smooth the entire area. I wouldn't have been able to get this done without him. Reasonable pricing, quick, efficient, tidy work, pleasant young man. I will be hiring him again!

My large (.93 acre) property was completely overgrown, with knee-high weeds in some areas. John responded quickly & was able to make a visit for a quote without the need for me to be there. The price was more than reasonable for the amount of work needed. John and his crew took care of everything, including hauling away the yard waste. I am so pleased with their work, that I am going to hire them for regular gardening services. Thanks, John!!

Their work is pretty good, and price is reasonable. We have switched from another gardener. In the process, I interviewed six gardeners and selected Down Under. We have been using them for about 6 months. So far, it has been a pretty good experience.

I had a fence installed by another company. During the installation, I had plants destroyed, irrigation broken, etc. I hired Landeros Landscape to clean up my yard and spruce it up. They went above and beyond in cleaning up all the debris, installing a new valve, replacing some sprinkler heads, they planted me a rose garden and some other plants. They trimmed my trees and put up my vines (what they could salvage). They were punctual, easy to talk to, went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. They were also reasonably priced. I was so impressed that I decided to continue with Landeros Landscape for bi-weekly yard maintenance. I highly recommend Landeros Landscape!

I’d highly recommend Hector for your landscaping/gardening needs. I called him last minute to mow the lawn, trim hedges/bushes get rid of a lot of weeds that had grown. He was responsive and very professional. The yard looked great after he competed the work.

Russell and his team renovated my outdoors; he was on time and finished the job in a fast and effective manner. They did an exceptional job creating an environment that has multiple lives and blooms as the season's change. Russell visits for maintenance on a regular basis, he is there to oversee the growth of our garden and make sure all of our plants are healthy and green. They leave your outdoor space looking picture perfect. They are quick, professional, knowledgeable, and most of all incredibly talented at what they do. He has cleaned up my planters, which has allowed for new growth. I would highly recommend Russell and his team for any sized job!

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.
