Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a gardener?

To find a good gardener near you, compare top-rated pros online. Read their profiles to find out what their specialities and list of services are. For example, do they offer:

  • Mulching
  • Lawn maintenance
  • Trees and shrub removal
  • Trees, shrub and flower planting
  • Weed removal
  • Etc.

Also, read their customer reviews and inspect photos that showcase the gardeners’ work. And contact several gardeners near you to compare prices and decide who’s the best fit.

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.

These gardeners did an amazing amount of work on my near-neglected hillside garden. They worked all day clearing away the overgrowth so we can now start regular maintenance twice a month. I'm more than pleased.

We hired Rod and Adam as a birthday gift for my sister, to have them come mend the soil and install an organic vegetable garden in her backyard. We were REALLY IMPRESSED with their extensive knowledge, professionalism, and consistently cheerful disposition throughout the entire process from exchanging emails to the finished (and beautiful) garden! My husband and I will definitely be using them for our own garden in the future, too. Very highly recommended!!

I would highly recommend David Conde!! He is nothing less than AMAZING!!! My husband & I bought our home and completely renovated, from top to bottom. We also replaced the landscaping around our entire property. We had hired other gardeners to maintain the grounds. Needless to say, they destroyed our landscaping. I found David & asked if he could take a look at our property & meet with our new landscaper, as we had to replace what the last gardener had killed. David was more than willing to talk to our landscaper & offer his advice too. We are so happy with David. If we are not home when David arrives, he calls us in the evening to explain what should be taken care of. He is a perfectionist & I'm grateful we found him. Our yard is finally starting to look beautiful again. He is very reasonable in price & very punctual too.

Everardo was quick to respond, as I'd reached out to 3 different gardeners for my project on Thumbtack. Everardo and his guys did a great job on cleaning up my yard. I was very specific on my ask in the maintenace. I wanted him to trim down plants, weed and remove excess leaves under the bushes. Everardo and his guys delivered everything that I'd ask, did it in a timely manner and for a reasonable price. I would definitely call him again for future projects.

I HIGHLY recommend Leo. He turned our yard from an overgrown mess into the pristine garden it used to be, at a super reasonable price, right on time, and even went above and beyond what we had expected. He gave us a highly detailed quote before starting and explained exactly what he would do. He even noticed things that needed to be done that we didn’t know about, like water distribution efficiency. He’s AWESOME and I am so grateful we found him!

Working with David has been a dream! First of all, he is very detail oriented and great at communication. What I love most is that when there is a question or he has an idea or wants to give me an update, he texts me and responds instantly. He was also able to do an additional project for me at at an amazing price and the work is outstanding. he is very knowledgeable about everything in my garden, able to follow complex instruction that my former landscaper gave us when we remodeled our backyard, and he has brought life to my beautiful outdoor living space. I would highly recommend David.

Eddie and his team did a fantastic job on our yard. This was a big project as a lot of things needed tending to. Eddie was quick to respond and meet. He is extremely knowledgeable and had good ideas on how to get the yard back into good shape while being very honest about what wouldn’t work/felt like an unnecessary spend. We also added things on as Eddie worked on the project and he was very flexible and accommodating of the changes. Our yard looks 100 times better because of the work of Eddie and his team and he now does our maintenance work too. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a gardener for a yard project of any size.

We recently moved to l.a from the east coast and had absolutely no idea on where to start, our yard was a disaster to say the least. Eddie met with us and gave us some great ideas on how to make our yard a usable space. Eddie and his crew were nice, respectful and kind , we have kids so this was very important. They came in and did a major clean up , pulled out dead shrubs , installed automatic sprinkler system, sod planted a privacy hedge and outdoor lighting , pavers and a area with artificial turf for a dog run. We have now hired him to come on a weekly basis to maintain our landscape. We had a great experience working with Eddie. We are glad we hired him and will recommend him to friends and family. We can now enjoy our beautiful garden. Thanks Eddie!! The Johnstons
