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!

Jaime & his crew transformed my overgrown jungle into a beautifully manicured lawn & backyard. They were courteous,friendly & responsive to my needs.The price was very affordable, considering the scope of work. I will be using them to maintain my garden the rest of this summer & hopefully many years to come. Call them...you won't be sorry!

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

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!

Honest. Hard working. Meticulous. Clean. On time. If you can get Luden and his crew you're in luck. Hands down the best that I have worked with. They dig mulching, dig in unique flower beds, spring clean up, light planting and garden tilling. Great guys. Will use again.

Verified review

It all started six years ago with an overgrown, unkept patch of potential that would eventually provide ongoing beauty throughout the seasons. We first met Jose when he & his crew delivered a Katsura to our home. Not only did he lead the install with meticulous care, but he checked on its progress beyond his contract obligations. From that point on we've received such attention to detail that he's contributed to many installs, clean ups, stonework, bed design, plantings & yearly maintenance.

We hired Jose to help us revamp our lawn in the backyard. He really did an exception job! Having myself lived in many homes...knowing a thing or 2, Jose is very professional, efficient and knows how to properly get the job done! He will leave you with a product that will last! We recently hired Jose to help with some dry wall. Again, he did a great job. We 100% recommend Jose and his team!

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!

Pedro was prompt and attentive. He’s the first lawn professional I hired for my new home and certainly one of the hardest workers I’ve had to the property. I anticipated a small team, but Pedro assured me he could single-handed meet all of my needs. He worked consciously and meticulously for hours until he’d completed every request I made, including some last minute tree trimming and decorative edging. His pricing was reasonable and his demeanor was respectful and professional. I’ll definitely be hiring him again and I encourage you to do the same!

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

Adrian did a wonderful job. He knew exactly what was needed and was thorough in the job. He even reinforced the other side slat in the bed. The work area was left neat and clean. He’s very personable and knowledgeable and I would recommend him for your job. I’m going to keep his number handy as there are always jobs around the house to do.

Luca planted flowers in my garden. He did a great job. Showed up the day before to survey the property and then came early the next to do the work. It took about three hours and he cleaned up afterwards. Well done, highly recommend!!

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.
