Katura B. says, "My experience with TEEK landscaping far exceeded my expectations. My front yard was destroyed due to an excavation to repair a water line problem, this included my lawn and a customized walkway. I live in a historic community (Indian Village) and I wanted to ensure the work was pristine and up to par with the neighbors. Needless to say, I was anxious about getting it repaired. TEEK was on top of everything from the day we agreed to move forward, to the completion of the project. The owner walked me through options, and the best solution for me, which was important. It was clear from the start that he's well versed in landscaping and hardscaping, and this is key because I needed a SME to provide the best solutions, without attempting to upsell. Additionally, his team was very professional and polite, they arrived everyday in the morning and left when it was dark, regardless of weather conditions. For each stage of the project they offered to walk me through what they were doing and why, which really put my mind at ease. Lastly, the team working on the project appeared to be in great moods all the time. It's the small things that make a huge difference!! On top of that the project was completed ahead of schedule which is an added bonus. I will be recommending TEEK to all of my neighbors, family and friends. For anyone reading this, with a landscaping project that requires attention, I promise you....TEEK is the first and only company you should call. I've dealt with others in the past, and there is no comparison."See more

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 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.

Reviews for Royal Oak gardeners
Thumbtack Customer
Jeff was wonderful to work with! He responded promptly to communications, provided suggestions to fill in for my lack of gardening know how, worked quickly and quietly. I thought that his pricing was absolutely fair. I appreciate that he worked with many of the plants I already had. And the finished product gives me joy every time I look at it. I will definitely be working with Jeff again in the future.
