Juan and his crew were great. I contacted them on a Saturday afternoon for a quote and they stopped by later that same afternoon. Juan was super knowledgeable about our project. And for those of you who don't know a lot about landscaping and gardening he's your man. He had a lot of solid information about where to put plants, where not to put plants, how to water the sod... etc. No question was considered stupid. In other words, he did not condescend to me, which I found refreshing. Nor did he try to hike up the price. His prices were super competitive with other bids we received. He was there when he said he'd be there and the project was completed in a very short time. His crew was very patient and polite while we were deciding where to put the sod line and also when asked to move some of the plants. They also cleaned up before they left. He's a good man to know when it comes to landscaping!

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!

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!!!

Meticulous work, I will hire Mr. Winston again. Our garden was overrun with weeds and grass and we didn't know how to begin to tackle it. Six hours later, the weeds were gone. What a relief!

Mark and his team were fantastic. He listened to what I wanted done, gave me a very reasonable quote for the work within two business days, scheduled the job as soon as I gave to go ahead, and finished well within his estimated timeframe. My garden was a years with of over growth and weeds, including a 15 year old poison ivy patch. The cleanup was done FAR beyond my expectations and I would happily reccomend him! Mark and his team are extremely knowledgable about plants and returned my garden to its lovely former self.

Nancy was great! She did a very good job, was always on time, and was extremely friendly. She de-weeded our entire condo's green space. I would definitely recommend her services to others.

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.
