Gardening is a great joy to me, but I've been so busy with work my beloved backyard grew completely out of control. Joel and his team saved the day -- they weeded by hand, shaped overgrown bushes and trimmed trees, hauled all the garden waste away and left my place beautiful. Will definitely call him again!

All around Hall's Landscaping did great work. They cleaned up an overgrown front garden, pulling shrubs our and prepping soil for new planting. They helped select excellent, minimal care plants. The new garden looks excellent. They even removed a rotting dogwood tree in the same day, efficiently and with no visible traces of tree left. We would highly recommend Hall's Landscaping. KMH

Plant Design Therapy's landscaping & gardening services are the best in class. As a real estate agent, I've enlisted the owner, MyLan Sarner's, help with prepping the outdoors space for my listings. She has also helped me plan and plant(!) my weekend home upstate. From suburban charm to urban rooftop chic, Mylan has an eye for color & design that is unrivaled and backed by her previous job in fashion. As a master gardener, she's knowledgeable about the seasonality of plants and goes above and beyond when it comes to educating her clients on how to maintain their greenery year round long after her crew has set the stage. Her team is responsive, on schedule and on the ball. I would highly recommend Plant Design Therapy for personal projects and future business collaborations.

Gardening In Balance

I have been gardening since I was five, helping my mohter in her vegetable gardens. My parents eventually divorced and at age 12 I was planting and growing my own gardens. Every place I lived I improved the landscaping, it is just something I love to do. I became a Master Gardener to fine tune my knowledge and skills, and am an avid reader keeping up on the latest in Gardening. People started coming to see my vegetable gardens and wanted to walk through them, because I am a huge advocate of companion planting: planting vegetables, flowers and herbs in such a way as to attract beneficial insects and deter the bad ones... much prettier than simple rows of veggies. I plant with a focus on long term results and beauty for landscaping and perennial gardens; with the proper spacing in mind, which is important to keep your gardens healthier and less work in the long run, the opposite of most landscaping companies which cram as much into a space as possible with no thought to the future. Gardens need to be maintained in order to stay healthy and beautiful, and it can be done as Holistically, and Organically as possible with great results. If your goal is a sustainable garden, that is not a cookie cutter garden, and want to enjoy it for years to come, I would love to meet you and help to create a relaxing space you can enjoy for years to come.

    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.
