Domingo and his crew did a spectacular job cleaning up my lawn and garden. He was very professional and my lawn looks great. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to all my friends

Juan was excellent. He offered reasonable prices for high quality work and gave really good advice on what would work well for our backyard area. He also kept in touch and offered advice on my vegetable garden and reminded me to water the plants when it was really hot outside :-)

My garden had been completely neglected and overgrown due to illness. I need help. I found Julio's Services on Thumbtack and called. Domingo came out and looked at the yard and gave me a fair price for the work. His workers came the next day and got everything done in about 3 hours. Domingo came and helped finish up. I am so thrilled with their work and the way my yard looks. They even trimmed the bushes in the front yard which was not part of the job. I am very happy and plan on hiring them again to get the front yard back in shape after the dirt over the replacement of my sewer main settles. I highly recommend Julio's lawn service to anyone looking for lawn and garden help.

Linda's team was hired to spread topsoil in some very large garden beds and rim them with stones. They also removed several overgrown bushes. They spread well over 20 yards of dirt and several truckloads of stones and did a fantastic job. They were quick, and very neat with their work when finished you could not even see they had been there other than the beautiful jobs they did cutting in, spreading dirt and rimming my beds with stone.

Roberto was extremely responsive. We had to reschedule several times due to the unpredictable weather. But once he was able to make it happen, I was very satisfied with the work done. I would definitely use Lawn of the Land's services again.

Jimmy's workers were consummate professionals: quick, picked up and recycled every single thing they removed, and explained everything that needed to be explained to my husband. 100% satisfaction. Afterward, my husband and stood there and pondered how long it would have taken us to do this work. It was money well spent. The job included trimming bushes and shrubs, pulling out a dead bush, removing weeds in the garden area, and cutting down dead perennials. Then they spread mulch. It looks beautiful!

So far, it has been a pleasure to work with Linda. She emails or texts right back, she was interested in our project and listened to what we were hoping for. I am optimistic that we will be thrilled with our new garden area!

I worked with Rodolfo. He came on time for the quote. We agreed to a fare price for the work. He and his crew arrived on time the day of service and did an excellent job. My services involved fall clean up which consisted of a gutter clean, leaf and garden bed cleanup, mow and edging of lawn.

Pedroza's Landscaping is fantastic. Within a couple hours of our request for service, Pedroza's arrived and did an excellent job of mowing and trimming our lawn. We were so impressed that we asked that day for a quote for spring clean-up and landscaping. Jose gave us a quote that day and completed the job the next week. The result: our lawn and landscaping are beautiful! All weeds were cleared, bushes and trees trimmed, lawn mowed, and mulch laid. We recommend Pedroza's and will definitely be using their services again!

Jose arrived right on time and was a very good customer service expert. Rather than haggle and try to nickel-and-dime me to death like my previous and prior lawn service guys, Jose was very pleasant and professional in addressing all my last-minute questions—as well as my small follow up requests for the next service. Based on our pre-hire negotiations and his on-site customer service, I think he is “The Real Deal” and his lawn maintenance services will only grow much bigger and better. I can’t recommend this service more highly!

The Sandoval Landscaping Services team exceeded my expectations!! The work to be done was a total removal of all garden beds, removal of an old tree stump, removal of a silver lace vine, removal of a trumpet vine and then application of a systemic killer. Not easy work!! They were prompt and on-time for the appointment to review the required work and presented a more than reasonable quotation prior to leaving. On the arranged day to perform the work they were punctual even showing up a little early because of the possible threat of rain during the day. Their work was amazing. Everything was removed and hauled away and prior to leaving the sidewalks, driveway and street were blown clean of any small debris. This is a team that deserves the highest rating possible and without question I will use them in the future.

I can’t say enough about Carolina and her team! We live in Chicago, but have a goodly piece of property for the city. Our regular guy has taken a sabbatical from residential projects so I was scrambling to find someone who a) knew plants b) had a crew and c)had an eye. To be frank, my garden looked a bit like Ms. Haversham’s after all the rain this season. Weeds everywhere—horrible! Carolina Irani responded to my desperate plea and offered a quote that I felt was just a tad high—but after reviewing her credentials I decided to move forward. I was impressed by her extraordinary communication! Great follow up, lots of emails back and forth as I tried to describe what I needed to have done. Uber responsive! We settled on a date that worked for both of us (took about two weeks) but she always offered lots of alternatives. When the crew arrived, what really impressed me is that she herself spent about an hour making sure we were all on the same page. She is a lovely, calm, professional woman who clearly knows her stuff. I am a gardener and my worst nightmare is somebody who pulls out a plant that took me 4 years to grow because they didn’t know what it was! Not Carolina. This woman knows her stuff!!! Over the 4-5 hours I saw 3 crew members working non stop. Boy are they organized! Somebody pruning, somebody cleaning, somebody trimming. A well oiled machine. Plus, she suggested edging on the garden beds (YAY!) which made everything have a really pulled together look. I could not BELIEVE how beautiful everything was. Now, I can begin the process of refurbishing the beds and restoring the grass. She even trimmed low hanging branches on my trees. When I got home tonight I took a moment to pause. My fairyland garden is taking shape again! Thanks Carolina and crew. If you are considering hiring her, DO it. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve further engaged her for bi monthly maintenance. A joy to work with and a job extremely well done!!!

Joni designed our homes Landscaping in 2007 and took it thru design to implementation. Since they we have had My Secret Garden back annually for maintenance and enhancements as our budget allowed. Including landscape lighting, Garden and flower bed maintenance. I can't more highly recommend Joni and her team! We have referred her to several friends and all have had great things to say after her designs were implemented.

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.
