"I posted my request Monday night and Armando responded that same night. He arrived in person early on Tuesday to give me a quote for my project. I accepted the very, very reasonable quote. On Wed morning they (Armando and his crew) showed up to work bright and early. We talked through the project and a few proposed changes, he took measurements and Armando accompanied me to purchase the correct materials for the job. This was really important, helpful and appreciated by me because I had no idea what to buy. Upon return the project was well on it's way and in process by the crew that was left behind, there was no time wasted. They were extremely professional, respectful and plain old "kind". They unloaded the materials I purchased and continued with the project. They were so quiet that I could barely tell they were there working in my back yard. The few times I went out to capture a peak on the progress, I was surprised how fast they worked and what was already completed. Just an incredible display of skill and professionalism. Even when we had a change in the plan, Armando handled it well and did a super job. The entire day speed by and those folks did a really great job. I'm still impressed with the work, the reasonable cost and professionalism. They really know their industry and had no problem providing tips and offering suggested resources (websites, stores, etc.) for self education on the landscaping topic overall. I would seriously hire Armando's Landscaping in a heartbeat. In fact, I'm planning my next project and I will be calling them for a quote soon. Project Summary: Attached pics depict the project completed. I had huge piles of dirt and debris from an abandoned project that I just couldn't finish on my own. My intent was to dig out half my yard and install mesh wire 1' or more deep to prevent gofer and moles from invading my lawn that I want to install. The job included digging out the dirt, installing mesh, ground prep, leveling the space, installing border, hauling away a ton of debris and I had my front yard cut and trimmed (no photo, sorry)."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
