I hired Greener Bay to plant 13 of my new plants in my front garden. I found the work to be good but very expensive. The work was completed within a few hours by one person.

D' Franco landscape designed our whole irrigation system for our garden. The team was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about irrigation. Great communication in regards to the planning and then reviewing the final project. Very happy we chose D'Franco landscape for our irrigation, excellent at what they do! Great value as well.

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

So far, Duran Landscaping has shown up on time, fixed the sprinklers, and taken care of the landscaping. We had a horrible time finding a gardening service that did what they promised to do (like stop by once a week). It seems like we finally found one.

Excellent Job! Marin was very professional, fair, and prompt. He listened to and delivered on everything I asked for, and did not insist on adding any extra work to stay within budget. He was early on the job and although it started raining halfway, he powered through and finished on time! I would hire him again for my next gardening project. Definitely five stars!

Nick is great. He has done excellent work for us, building redwood garden boxes, wheelchair ramps, and other carpentry projects. He has also contributed to a tiny house project, fixed doors, repaired irrigation lines, and consulted on plumbing issues. He is responsible, careful, and creative. He's also a pleasure to deal with. I am very confident you will be happy with his work. Bob Poole, Sebastopol

Siai did an exceptionally high quality gate and pergola for the end of my driveway which will soon be a gateway to a patio existing garden. He works alone and is therefore personally involved in the whole project. He is an honest man proud of his work as he should be. Competitive bid. Highly recommended.

Morgan is easy to work with, he stays up to date in his profession. He is a very creative gardener, and is innovative in his work as well as working with others. He is very knowledge about plants and their care. He listens well and is able to be very helpful in accomplishing goals for the garden. He is a very hard worker, and we were always very pleased with his work. While in San Luis Obispo, he was our gardener. We miss him!! He installed a new, underground watering system in an area we planted ground cover. He keeps up on new technologies, especially water saving techniques. He is a treasure!! He is knowledgeable, hard working, listens well, and an all around nice guy!!

Adam is fantastic to work with. He's very patient and pays a lot of attention to details. I had the same job done two years ago by someone else and Adam definitely did a much much job than the other company I used last time. I'm definitely going to call him for all my gardening projects.

The sprinkler and gardening technician from J&G Services, Jesus Chavez, was punctual, friendly, and professional. He gave me an estimate for the job and stuck by it. He did his work in an orderly manner and provided a perfect job. I would definitely call on him again for landscaping and sprinkler system needs.

Bill helped us with our new house. We are less knowledgeable about gardening given we're first time home owners - but he patiently explained our options and gave a very competitive estimate. He finished the job within the quoted time and price. Our place looks great now because of his help! We highly recommend using him

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.
