  • Etc.

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.

We requested A+ gardening services to come help us clean up our leaves. We just moved into a new home and had a ton of cleanup. Kul showed up and was reasonable with me on the price and then got straight to work. He is a hard worker who does a great job! I’d recommend to all!

I can't sat enough about this great company. They were able to give me a quote quickly and came out the next day and all of the work I requested. I found their rates very reasonable and they were very professional. I will call them for other gardening projects around my home.

Sylvester and his brothers did an excellent job and were very responsive. In fact they were hired the same day i requested a quote. They were contacted to do a one time clean up and i ended up hiring them as my full time gardeners, because of the outstanding job they did. I would recommend them. Great job Rodriguez Brothers.

I live out of town and just bought a home in Sacramento the yard needed major clean up before I could move in. I reached out to them and got a response within couple hours. Sent some photos of the yard and let them know what I wanted and he gave me a great quote and took all the mess with him. I have a new gardener and I’m quite pleased.

Young gentleman came to my home..... discussed work to be done with him. Sounded like he new what he was talking about. Yard needed some plants to be extra pruned. Current gardener not quite doing everything. But, the monthly cost to maintain the yard was too high. And, Pablo could not guarantee that he would not do some damage. He wanted me to accept his work"even if something went wrong". For the work he was providing and his specialty, I think he could provide cleanup without creating extra work for me..... Sounded like it wasn't going to happen.

I hired Max’s company for a yard clean out. They did great and gave me a great quote! I had reached out to many companies and went with Max’s company because of their competitive pricing, responsiveness, and great reviews. I was not disappointed! He responded to me right away, and was super responsive, answering questions very quickly. He was even able to come out the next day to give me a quote, and from there offered me availability to come the next day for a clean out! I highly recommend this company! An extra cherry on top is that they are very nice and easy to work with. That sounds like a little thing, but I really appreciated that because some of the other companies I contacted definitely were not as nice/ easy to work with. Anyway, thank you- our garden looks way better than it has in months and we’re looking forward to other services from your company!
