Geo and a member of his team came to clean up our very overgrown garden. Within 2 hours they had trimmed, mowed, and hauled out all yard trimmings. Geo also gave recommendations for how to help the plants we have flourish. We originally only wanted a one time cleanup, but will be using Geo regularly now based on the great work!

I was finally relieved when I found a great gardening company. Rich looked and spoke very professional. I was referred to by my neighbor who loves this company and I always seen them outside doing a great job and noticed their amazing work. So I hired them as well. Their prices were competitive and their work shows their passion. I had some man knock on my door one day to do my yard work for basically nickles and dimes but they had no insurance or a license. They didn't even speak a drop of English. I'm so happy that this company has a great team who speak English and are licensed and insured! Also we were always on the same page! Thank you Magnificent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jose Franco was so wonderful to work with. He was always punctual and highly professional. We had a leak in our garden and he spent time trouble shooting and finally finding the source of the leak and was able to fix it. The best part of working with Jose is how nice he is and his desire to have me understand exactly what he was doing. He has fantastic "people" skills and is an excellent communicator. I would recommend him highly to anyone who needs an irrigation specialist.

They did a great job clearing out our jungle of a backyard. They even came back a second day to level out the dirt. We would definitely recommend CRC Gardening and Landscaping.

Walter is very nice and walked me through his gardening process. He was more than willing to negotiate on price and his team cleaned up my yard in less than one day. It is pristine now. Great company, don't hesitate to hire them.

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.

Anthony was very professional and trimmed my overgrown tree to a nice height and started on the rest of my yard. He cleans up and takes all clippings curbside. I look forward to working with him again. I would definitely recommend him as a dependable, reasonably priced Gardner that has a natural passion for trimming trees and gardening.

Enrique showed up on time and went above and beyond for the extensive one-time weeding project I hired him for. Not only did he beautifully clear the areas we discussed he also cleared a few additional small areas and also cleared all the weeds in the sidewalk/walkways/driveway edges. He even edged the yard while he was there. Everything was left immaculately clean after he was done. I've decided to hire him for bi-weekly lawn maintenance as I was so thoroughly impressed with his timeliness, responsiveness, fair prices and high quality work.

I had mulch added in the backyard and a number of plants in the front. Everything looked great and the men did work as expected. The price was very reasonable to say the least. They showed up on time and got right to work. Will hire again as I have another project coming.

I have known Duenas Landscaping for about nine years. I contacted them from a business card they left in my mail box one day. I tried them on cutting three trees in my backyard and I was totally satisfied and impressed. They cleaned up afterwards and hauled away the debris as agreed. I gave them another job later on in my front yard(re-paving my driveway, changing my car-port supports and landscaping). My neighbors were so impressed they asked me if I would recommend them. I did not hesitate to do. NOw, at least five of my neighbors have used Duenas Landscaping, some on a regular weekly basis. I would NOT hesitate to recommend them for any landscaping projects. They are reliable, trustworthy and clean. Manuel Duenas, the owner, is one good individual and a very honest person. You can call me for reference any time. Ray C. Belmont (591-3063)

I have been working with Anselmo for over 3 years for general gardening, pruning, fertilizing, and irrigation. Unmatched quality and exceptional job every single time. I am going to get him to do the landscaping project this summer. Highly recommend him.

Very happy with the service and highly recommended :) . Elvis started weeding/gardening in our moderately large front and back yard. The difference was pleasantly noticeable right away. He was prompt, offered helpful suggestions, and responded well to our requests and concerns. Looking forward to continue working with him, and a garden much improved!

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

Initial visit was excellent. Manuel is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Responded to my contact same day. The real work is still to go. So initial impressions are great but...the heavy lifting is still to come.

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.
