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.

I arrived from Italy visiting my daugther in NYC. I like gardening. I realized a tree was making a lot of shadow and a corner of the garden was quite dark. It was amazing to look for someone who could prune the tree and the day after to get the pruning. Samuel and Stephan were very nice, fast and now the garden has a lot of light. Samuel seemed an expert not only about pruning and I recommended my daugther to call him in case she will need some gardening.

I highly rate Guillermo and Plants Fashion. He was professional, quick, showed up on time and the work was excellent. In addition to the winter taking a toll on the area, I had a thorny and dead set of bushes overtaking the garden and lots of leaves and weeds.. It looks so fresh and clean now. The job was hard and the results are amazing. I'm so happy with the work...it's like having a whole new garden. I can't say enough good things. Look no further if you need help with your garden!

Don went beyond the call of duty trimming bushes and pulling up ivy in a very overgrown garden—in the pouring rain! He remained in good spirits and offered sound advice.

Guillermo. is what you are looking for: a totally professional gardener. I have been gardening for over 45 years, in Connecticut (on 1 1/2 acres) and for the past 30 years on 2 latrge terraces here in N.Y. C. Guillermo knows as much as I do. I did't feel a need to supervise him. After cutting back my entire garden, he did a wonderful job of clean-up. My terraces are now immaculate. (He also removed all of he debris under my very large clay pots. ) His price was perfectly reasonable ($60 per hour) and he finished the job in the time I had estimated (4 hours.) I will be asking him to work for me again. Maggie Mahar
