  • Mulching

How often should a gardener come?

How often your gardener should come depends on what you’re looking for and your budget. Typically, homeowners prefer a gardener to come once per week, several times a month or once per month. This may include services like tidying up the garden or trimming and tidying hedges. Some people hire these tasks out once per year. For more regular services like mowing the lawn, weeding and trimming, you could hire someone to come every week or every other week. If you do some of the work yourself, you can have them come out less frequently.

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.

Sara was very straight forward and gave a very clear explanation of the service and also helped me do things that will save me money. They made the first visit today and I'm very happy with the crew as well. Very courteous and even they were looking out to save me a few bucks, all the while doing a great job on the garden. Highly recommended, despite being a little expensive compared to "handyman" gardening.

We love the service and the quality. They did not waste their time and cleaned the whole yard. They took the ownership of both the yards - front and back. I highly recommend them for gardening and maintenance of yard. 👍

David Ramirez did an excellent job for our backyard cleanup and haul away. The rate that he charged was very reasonable. Plus point is that he replied to the request that we posted on Thumbtack within just a few hours and was very punctual in replying to our follow up messages. Will definitely call him again for future gardening related works.

Agustin Beas completed an awesome job on my front and back yard. He is very flexible and open. My estimate for the mulch quantity was not exactly right, but he was willing to make additional trip to the landscape supply place. His work is very detail oriented and the finish was flawless. I will definitely use him for future pruning and any additional garden work. Thanks.

Just hired magnificent landscape to do my biweekly gardening. They did a great job on the first cleanup. So far every interaction with them has been very professional. They have great attention to detail. They asked whether I wanted my bushes natural or boxy, whether I needed to keep the trees tall for privacy...they asked about my irrigation system, what type of weedkiller I was comfortable with... I just loved how much detail they put into the job without any prompting from me! They have also been perfectly on time for the two times they have come so far.
