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 San Jacinto gardeners
Sue F.
DON’T HIRE THIS MAN! This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t show up when he says he will (this is also stated in his other reviews) and when he does, he does a lousy job. He leaves branches and weeds all over and does an inadequate job of blowing leaves. He charges $75 a visit even though I have a very small yard with no grass to mow and only a few plants to trim. Before he even started gardening, he sold gullible me a set of pipes for my sprinkler valve system that I’m now sure I didn’t need—another $75. But, hey! I was so glad to find a gardener who said he would also help me with other odd jobs. I’m 75 and have some disabilities, so I was thrilled. And he is quite the talker. Plus, did I say I was gullible? He agreed to mount a mailbox for me and wanted to charge me $100, but I talked him into accepting $75 (again, gullible me). He asked for the check before he did the job. He spent two hours on this job and said he couldn’t finish and would return another day. When he returned (after lying to me about where he had been and why he was late), he brought another man with him to help with this “incredibly difficult job,” and together they spent three more hours! When I finally rather meekly stepped in to see what was taking them so long, Ben yelled at me and told me to stop talking because he couldn’t concentrate. So here’s the unbelievable part: It turned out that this “incredibly difficult job” only required TWO screws and two nuts plus drilling two holes. That’s it! For $75. As if this wasn’t enough, the two screws he used were each 2 inches long and stuck way through the bottom of the mailbox. I had to have a friend come by to cut them off (it took him 30 seconds). Needless to say, I experienced some personal growth over this whole disastrous incident with Ben Parks—Yes, you can still learn, even at the age of 75. DON’T HIRE THIS FLIMFLAM MAN!
