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.

Reviews for Monrovia gardeners
Amanda L.
My experience with Everardo was great! I had sent out a message to inquire about potentially hiring a gardener to manage and maintain my garden and the foliage around the property. I have a lovely landscaped garden, but it is a lot to manage on my own. Everardo was super responsive to my initial inquiry and set up a phone call with me within the hour and offered to stop by to check out the property and give me a quote within the same day. Everardo came and did a walk through and was super patient and listened to my ideas of what I wanted done (clean up the leaves, pull out the weeds/plants that are no longer healthy, trim the overgrown plants, replant grass and shrubs, maintain the sprinkler system, etc.) It was quite a list as I have not had a regular gardener for over 18 months due to financial constraints -- so I had mentioned that I was not in a rush to get all of that done once, but Everardo said he could get started on it the next day which was helpful and indicative of his proactive attitude and work ethic. During the first visit, he was able to clean up all the leaves (there were lots of them), pull out weeds, replant a shrub, and check out the sprinkler system -- we found that I needed to replace some of the nozzles which he said he would assist me with during his next visit. I was very happy with the work quality and can't wait to see how Everardo can help my garden flourish over time as he will be coming twice a month. I also really liked that he was very responsive via text as I was able to send him pictures and messages pertaining to the garden as they come up and feel confident that he will take care of it when he comes next.
