Just hired magnificent landscape to do my biweekly gardening. They did a great job on the first cleanup. So far every interaction with them has been very professional. They have great attention to detail. They asked whether I wanted my bushes natural or boxy, whether I needed to keep the trees tall for privacy...they asked about my irrigation system, what type of weedkiller I was comfortable with... I just loved how much detail they put into the job without any prompting from me! They have also been perfectly on time for the two times they have come so far.

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.

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.

Saia recently replaced my side fence and I absolutely loved the outcome. The quality of his work is so good that we are going to ask him to replace the other side fence as well. He is a hard working and experienced pro and I definitely recommend him to whoever needs help with construction work. Saia's dedication is outstanding. He visited 4 5 home depots in the south bay area to pick the right wood for our fence, and stayed on site until past 8 pm to keep his word and finish the work which is really impressive. It was a pleasure getting to know him and working with him.

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)

Johnny Davis is the person who got me started in gardening and plant care. I have some rare and unique plants and trees that he gave me 30 years ago. I have since been out on my own, but working with him and learning about caring for yard plants made me quite successful. Rehabbing yard plants and trees is quite different from just planting, and this is one of his specialties. Sometimes older plantings have been just sheared and become leggy or too big. Many older plants need to be repaired. It takes an artist who is a knowledgable plant person to transition a neglected yard to a well tended yard without lopping everything off and starting over.

I needed ideas to improve my front side yard and Edward came out right away and gave me a very competitive bid to install irrigation to connect to my existing system and put in sod, as well as topping off the bark in all the planter beds in my entire yard. Even better, he was able to start the job very quickly and finished it on time. Edward was super responsive, answered all my questions in person and via text/phone, and even put in some flowering plants (not part of the original job) for just the cost of the bags of planting soil he picked up.

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.

    I am looking for an organic gardening service when it comes to fertilization and pest control. I would like to find someone who could also help with annual planting and such. Finally, if chicken coop upkeep and composting were within the services provided, that would be ideal- not a necessity but a plus.
