Ben was friendly, punctual and even gave us some extra advice on gardening in the area that we wanted tilled for our small garden. We had a 20 by 10 foot area tilled by him and appreciate the time he put into the project even though it was a small one.

    Carolina Lawn Care takes care of our lawn as well as flower beds, pruning of hedges and weed control and fertilizer for the grass. They do a great job. They have been doing work for us for many years. We are super satisfied with their work. They also put in a rock garden and stone path in our yard and both turned out beautifully!

    Andrew's Lawncare & Home Improvements has definitely got potential and is on the right track to being a huge success. I was looking to have a garden bed installed in my yard and seeing as I had no clue howto set it up I contacted Andrew. He kindly walked me through the process step by step and answered all my questions. He proceeded with the installation and when it was finished I was more then satisfied! He did a phenomenal job and one of the kindest gentleman I've had the pleasure of working with. I highly recommend anyone out there to give Andrew's Lawncare & Home Improvements a try. Highly recommended!

    Aquaponics is the future of gardening. We're working toward supplying families with eco-friendly solutions to growing their own chemical and pesticide-free vegetables along with the ability to grow clean, healthy and edible fish in the same backyard system which uses 90% less water than a dirt garden while producing the same or more produce. With food prices and everything else becoming more costy, it's time for the average family to begin searching for ways to become more self-sufficient. Aquaponics is a method to eat healthier at a hugely reduced cost on edible fish and vegetables. With Aquaponics, you know what's in your fish and vegetables, which makes this as close to organic as you can get. Aquaponics is the production of edible vegetables and fish growing in a weed-free, low water usage system. The fertilizer for the plants to grow, the plants, the fish supply, composting worms and naturally occurring beneficial bacteria clean the water for the fish. Aquaponics is a water miser; to the fish tank will be returned any water unused by the plants. This water can be indefinitely used and only needs replacing when lost through evaporation and transpiration. Raised beds aid you in keeping from over stressing your back, and they are 100% weed-free, since everything grows in rock, not in dirt, thus also resulting to a major reduction in pests and bugs. Aquaponics is totally scalable; you start with a small backyard system and add to it as your needs grow, and expand the system to increase your produce yield with more vegetables and fish. I use my large greenhouse, Aquaponics training system or demonstration, together with an outdoor system (in progress), to educate people on how rewarding and easy Aquaponics can be. With the economy in such an unstable condition, I feel families need to get back to the basics and start growing some of their own food. With the recent freeze of Florida's produce, you will see prices skyrocket in the supermarkets, and it will become more and more difficult to afford fresh food. Aquaponics is based on the productive systems as they're found in nature and can be loosely described as the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics What would happen if there wasn't any produce in the supermarkets? What would the average family do? Aquaponics can provide vegetables and protein, edible fish, in one water saving backyard system that’s easy to maintain and easy to learn.

    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.
