I needed a pretty hard job on my side and back yard. He came that day to give a quote (very reasonable) and the next day to do the job. He arrived both times when he said he would. He did an amazing job and was friendly and professional. I saved the number so he could continue to be put gardener.

I used Memo's Garden (Memo) to install pavers around a new driveway, remove and replace front yard landscaping and install a new drip system. Memo was patient as I made decisions and accommodated any changes I had along the way. He explained in detail what was needed and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. I was very happy with the completed work, he definitely met my expectations. Memo is professional in every way - I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him on future projects.

I hired Ian to paint my kitchen, and he did a very good job, taking his time to make sure that it was done well. I was especially impressed when he offered to weed my garden while waiting for the first coat of paint to dry.

    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.
