I have gone through many gardeners over the years and Jose is turning out to be one of the best. He does a beautiful job, does any extras I ask him to do, he will let me know if he can't show up - he has never missed a day so far. Very reliable and very easy to work with. I hope I never lose him.

Chris and his brother Taylor trimmed a 15-foot tree in my condo patio to perfection....they cut it down 5 feet and neatly rounded all the edges. they also cut down a pesky bush, cleaned out all the leaves in a garden area and left the work area spotless, hauling away everything. Before doing the work, Chris stopped by to estimate the time and amount for the job. It was very acceptable and I would hire his service again. Good service at a great price.

Jose and his team took a back room down for me at my house. He quoted me a price, and was true to his word. His team showed up on time. They were professional, worked hard, and actually completed the job ahead of time! Jose had estimated it would take a couple of days for the work. He was able to complete the job in one day. I cannot state how important it is to hire people who are honest and honorable for work you do on your home. There are alot of dishonorables out there....Jose is one of the good guys. His team cleaned up before they left - i think my yard was actually cleaner than when they arrived. I will use Jose and his team again for other construction projects in my home!!

Thank you, John, for your fast response to my urgent request. You arrived when you said you would, and your team got the entire job done and completely cleaned up before noon. My 6' hedges needed cut back to the property line before a City Inspector's visit and the job had been left half done by my gardener. You know landscape design and cut the trunks and branches with skill so the new growth will come back looking its best. You have made me a very happy customer.

I hired Jerry to do trimming and general yard clean-up to get home ready for sale. The hedges and bushes had not been trimmed in sometime. Jerry trimmed everything and completed it in a few hours at a very reasonable rate. I would definitely call him again.

Gabe came out on time when he said and was very thorough with asking what I expected for our lawn service. He's only been with us less than a month so far but I see a long relationship due to us being very satisfied with his work, doing what he said he would do and following up. So far so good and we're looking forward to having the nicest lawn on our block and I think Gabe and GK services will do just that. A lot of gardeners in our area speak broken English with Spanish being their first language so there's a communication problem. That is not the case with Gabe he speaks perfect English at least as good as I do and remembers what you've discussed. Thanks Gabe... GREAT job so far.

Their work is pretty good, and price is reasonable. We have switched from another gardener. In the process, I interviewed six gardeners and selected Down Under. We have been using them for about 6 months. So far, it has been a pretty good experience.

I had a fence installed by another company. During the installation, I had plants destroyed, irrigation broken, etc. I hired Landeros Landscape to clean up my yard and spruce it up. They went above and beyond in cleaning up all the debris, installing a new valve, replacing some sprinkler heads, they planted me a rose garden and some other plants. They trimmed my trees and put up my vines (what they could salvage). They were punctual, easy to talk to, went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. They were also reasonably priced. I was so impressed that I decided to continue with Landeros Landscape for bi-weekly yard maintenance. I highly recommend Landeros Landscape!

Russell and his team renovated my outdoors; he was on time and finished the job in a fast and effective manner. They did an exceptional job creating an environment that has multiple lives and blooms as the season's change. Russell visits for maintenance on a regular basis, he is there to oversee the growth of our garden and make sure all of our plants are healthy and green. They leave your outdoor space looking picture perfect. They are quick, professional, knowledgeable, and most of all incredibly talented at what they do. He has cleaned up my planters, which has allowed for new growth. I would highly recommend Russell and his team for any sized job!

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.
