Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a gardener?

To find a good gardener near you, compare top-rated pros online. Read their profiles to find out what their specialities and list of services are. For example, do they offer:

  • Mulching
  • Lawn maintenance
  • Trees and shrub removal
  • Trees, shrub and flower planting
  • Weed removal
  • Etc.

Also, read their customer reviews and inspect photos that showcase the gardeners’ work. And contact several gardeners near you to compare prices and decide who’s the best fit.

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.

Spring garden cleanup. All went well. Fast, thorough, and efficient. I don't know how we would have found Landcraft without Thumbtack. Full garden make-over coming.

Robin and her crew did a fantastic job. The team was very thorough on weeding my garden and landscape. They also selected replacement plants and flowers to brighten my yard. My house now has immediate curb appeal.

From the time I posted this project, I received a message and finalized a project in under an hour! The work was done fast and efficiently. The gentlemen were really friendly and polite, even interacted with my dog and toddler. The final result is so beautiful! I suck at gardening and had butchered one of the bushes. They put a lot of thought into how things would grow in, and even moved a plant that needed more space. The price was very fair and I’ll definitely be contacting them for all future projects!

I would absolutely hire His Workmanship again! Not only did they respond to my Thumbtack inquiry right away but they were able to come out and take care of my gardening job within just a few days. Trey and Kyle did the work for me and I couldn't have been happier with the job they did. They showed up right on time, worked for 4 hours without stopping, did a beautiful job with weeding/pulling out big plants/mulching and met all of my requests and needs with a smile and cheerful attitude. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend His Workmanship to anyone!
