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 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.

I have had two gardeners that were unsatisfactory. Armando trimmed my whole yard, blew debris to clean up. I was very happy. He saw what to do and did it with no direction from me.

Jorge just finished spending all day working on yard, both front and back, and did a FANTASTIC job! My yard now looks the best it has ever looked in 7 years! He trimmed all my bushes so well that they look like a Topiary Garden. Thanks for the great job at a very reasonable price.

Jorge did an awesome job! Our backyard and garden was overwhelmed with weeds and our lemon and apple trees were in desperate need of a trim. He took care of it all in less than a day. Worked hard and fast at a super fair price. Also, he's a nice guy too. We're asking him back soon to hel

Jorge did an amazing job in my yard. He worked really hard in making sure all requests I made were done to perfection. I feel as though he opened up my garden and gave me more space with the work her did for me. I highly recommend Jorge and hope to use him for the maintenance of my yard.

Jorge was amazing! Our yard was very over grown and needed a lot of work. He was responsive, fast, amazing, helpful, and much more. The pricing was great for the amount of work we needed. The before and after pictures speak for themselves. We have more work to come with adding new plant life, which we will definitely be hiring Jorge again to help us, along with regular maintenance. I highly highly recommend Jorge for your gardening needs.

I had been searching for a gardener that I could rely on, had hired others in the past that showed up once or twice then vanished. Finding Jorge has been a blessing for me, from our initial meeting to review my needs for my home to the present time two months later. Jorge shows up every other week, does a beautiful job with my landscaping and makes very helpful suggestions. My yard has never looked better! Thank you Jorge, I am happy I can count on you.

We were looking for some help with our front and backyard in addition to some monthly maintenance for both. We found California Greens Landscaping here on Thumbtack and Freddy was quick to respond and address our gardening needs. He understood what we were looking for and was able to schedule work on our project within the same week! We were most impressed with how quickly we were able to get going on the yard. Freddy and Roberto came out later that week and trimmed back all the overgrowth and cleaned up all the leaf and yard debris. We couldn't be happier with how quickly we were able get going on the project and now our yard looks trim and tidy! We look forward to working with CGL on a monthly basis! Thank you Freddy and Roberto!
