Gardening is a great joy to me, but I've been so busy with work my beloved backyard grew completely out of control. Joel and his team saved the day -- they weeded by hand, shaped overgrown bushes and trimmed trees, hauled all the garden waste away and left my place beautiful. Will definitely call him again!

I found the experience of working with Mr. Rodas to exceed all my expectations of what Thumbtack might be able to offer. He was the first gardener and landscape professional to respond to my request, and each time he offered respect, kindness, and good advice, and willing to listen in a professional yet individual and caring manner. He carried through on what he offered. His gardening colleague Jack was as kind, hard working, and professional as Guillermo is. Despite a personal glitch in scheduling, Mr. Rodas did not give up or lose interest. His was willing to adjust to the budget I stretched to be able to afford for the gardening needs; and provided I believe exceptional value for money well spent. Watching him execute the finishing touches on placing the chosen plants around the property was the moment of magical transformation. They even worked through the rain. They have been an answer to my prayers. I recommend him at the highest level and feel it is a privilege and joy to have had his caring heart, expertise and vision of beauty for the yard I care for. Faithfully, Rev. Dr Victoria

Rich did a great job trimming the hedges, they were done with great attention to detail and came out even and symmetrical. Rich also edged out multiple new beds and designed colorful perennial gardens for each. He was upfront and discussed all options with me before hand. His quote was reasonable and the job came in right at the price we discussed. Looking forward to having him take care of our bi-weekly lawn maintenance!

I can't recommend Dan enough. I recently moved to my first home in Brooklyn with outdoor space and wanted help getting a garden up and running on my patio. After coming by for a consultation, Dan came back with plants, soil, and tools and taught me how to plant and care for everything. He also set up an irrigation system for the new plants and helped me install outdoor lighting. The patio and garden look fantastic thanks to Dan's help. I will definitely work with him again!

As part of the name states--LANDCARE and Anthony certainly took pride in his work as well as I did, in the finished product that he produced for my backyard. His customer service in informing me of the work schedule was outstanding. My wife and I are very pleased with his work and work ethic that I highly recommend you consider this firm for your gardening needs. I have told Anthony that I will be switching to his company for my landscaping needs next season. I am currently under contract with another landscaper and it would not be right that I cancel. I told Anthony the situation and he agreed. Next year I am definitely going to sign on with ACLandCare. The above is my experience with ACLandCare as of July 21, 2018, and I hope my experience helps some other homeowner who wants quality and dependability. Jerry Kearney Massapequa Park, NY

Last year I was trying to create a home garden without much knowledge on the subject other than some rough ideas on what I wanted the project to look like. I came to Dana on several occasions with an onslaught of questions and was impressed by her wealth of knowledge and willingness explain everything in great detail. With her input, I was able to make informed purchases and we created a better finished product than I had origionally envisioned. I was equally pleased that we stayed within my budget for the project as well. I would recommend her services to anyone. Thanks again!

Denise Martin and AJM Earth – an incredibly effective small landscape team – have given me back the garden started 25 years ago and all but lost of late to benign neglect and some overly successful Sea Oats. The combination of horticultural and excavation experience was just what this project needed. My initial inquiry was answered right away and we met to survey the “garden” just a few days later. This fact alone is telling of how very professional, organized, and responsive AJM Earth is. Denise and her husband Joe, as well as third team member Carlos, were great about listening to what I wanted as well as suggesting innovative solutions for what else was needed – and then delivering on schedule and on budget. In late September, the heavy equipment rolled in and all the overgrown beds were “grubbed out”, large stone steps were assembled to my exacting specs, and an amazing Gabion basket wall (one of those innovative suggestions) now permanently shores up an old wood retaining wall. Finally, a back yard screening border was planted with some of my favorite trees and shrubs. All this was accomplished by the team of three who seem to do the work of ten. And do it happily! Whatever your landscaping goal, whether you have no fixed notion or, like me, know what you want but need a ton of help to achieve it, Denise and her team are the ones to call. You will be as impressed and delighted as I am. December 2017

Harry and his team did a great job weeding (a lot of weeds!) and laying down mulch on my property - very friendly, reasonably priced and explained everything he was doing along the way. Plan to use again in the future - thanks Harry and team!

Minuteman Land Services has been working with my property for 20 years. They have always been attentive to service for special landscaping projects, plantings, lawn care, walkways, stone walls and snow plowing in winter and every other garden project I have had. I would recommend their services for any and every landscaping/garden project and general maintenance of your property. If you have an emergency he is there to help you out. Give him a call. Jordan is the best and will work with you to make your yard beautiful at a price in your budget.

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.
