Mr. N. says, "FIRST OFF, LET ME START BY SAYING IF I COULD GIVE THESE GUYS OVER 5 STARS, I ABSOLUTELY AND MOST DEFINITELY WOULD....MORE LIKE 15 TO 20 STARS EASILY!! I searched and searched and searched for weeks trying to find a tree trimming service that not only would be able to come out in a timely manner, but also wouldn't try and rob me blindly for my money! Finally, when I was just about to give up and I was going to go with some guys who were going to do only four of my 10 trees for a total of $400 which included taking the trash and trimmings as well, I stumbled across Cesar and his guys...it was a good thing I did too! Not only were Cesar and his guys willing to come out within a day or two tops, but they charged me an amazing price for nine palm trees, as well as one regular tree too. Everybody else was trying to charge me at minimum, $80 per palm tree, for a total of at least $1,000, and none of them even included picking up all of the trash and trimmings when they were done! However, Cesar and his crew did all nine of my palm trees, and my one other tree, as well as two baby palm trees, and some shrubbery, for a total of 12 trees, and some other stuff as well, at an absolutely ridiculous low price! Wayyyy below what everyone else was charging!!! Not only that, but they also took all of the trash, tree trimmings, shrubbery, and pretty much everything else, with them too!!! They also even used their air blower on my whole property, and made sure everything was cleaned up the right way and well! Again, it was a good thing I found Cesar and his guys when I did.....I can't say thank you enough for all of your help and hard work Cesar. I also really appreciate the fact that you guys didn't try to rob me like everybody else, for only doing a half ass job too. You guys have definitely earned my business for good, and you will be also hearing from a lot of different people I send your way...thanks again so much, and remember....referrals are definitely coming your way!!!! Stay safe and keep up the good work!"See more

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 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.
