It has been easy and delightful to establish a working relationship with Julie, one that has lasted a number of years. Because she is intuitive and an excellent listener, she quickly understood what I wanted in and from my garden. My garden is full each year of both flowering and foliage plants in colors and varieties that complement each other in blooming time and in height. Julie is flexible, tolerant and even welcoming of my requests - I like different things every year! - using her extensive knowledge to keep both me and the plants happy. Julie's staff is as professional, articulate and thoughtful as she is. It is as much of a pleasure to have Julie in the garden as the flowers themselves.

Peter was fantastic to work with and very responsive when we contacted him and had questions. We needed a variety of services including lawn mowing, leaf clean up from the fall, mulch, and a serious shrub/tree trimming. He exceeded our expectations and was very reasonable in cost. Highly recommended, our garden and yard now look fantastic.

    La Lawncare, Heath, did a very nice job. We asked for a "Spring Cleanup" of our yard and they did a great job cleaning out the garden beds and the lawn of leaves, acorns and other debris. The price for the project was very affordable. I would be glad to have Heath come back to our yard for other projects.

    I hired JDJB Services Co. to help redesign a large flowerbed at my home in Saco that had become overgrown, out of control. I had a specific budget and design in mind and Joe was able to work within my budget. I now have a new flower garden that I can admire. Joe and his team did an excellent job cleaning up when they were finished, and the job was done in the time he predicted. I'll enjoy my flowerbed for years to come! Thank you Joe!

    Proud Mom speaks: I am proud of all my sons who have been in this business for so long. It was wonderful to see the older ones train the younger. My daughters were also involved off and on. As the business has grown so have the services and the type of equipment. At the beginning I drove the push mowers to the jobs so the family could work after getting to the job site by school bus. From my point of view this was much easier than a paper route for me and my involvement. So pleased to have the work ethic my husband and I tried to instill being carried out. It is wonderful to hear accolades as I am out and about in the Kennebunk community. Come see the work that has been done in my yard over the years. New gardens and a railroad tie stairway have improved the value and the looks of my property. The two mechanical engineering degrees and the economics degree are a wonderful asset to this business. The engineer certainly has a way of looking at a project and seeing more than meets the eye of some. Proud Mom

    I met with Mr. Wallace for my mother who is 81 and has had a stroke and unable to care for her lawn and gardens. He was very polite and understood what she wanted and needed. I think he will work well for my mother.

    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.
