I needed to install a new through-the-wall A/C and was very concerned about insulation because there is a draft in the winter. It's summer now so not sure about the insulation but Varian took extra care of this piece and brought the necessary tools / equipment. Also was very responsive via text and I was able to book him in 48 hours. Great job!

Grant and his crew did an amazing job. They demo some of my kitchen, bathroom and 3 ceiling bedrooms. Most importantly they got rid of all the junk and garbage. After I saw them work I found out he does tree and plant pruning also. I couldn’t make it the next day to pay him for the tree cutting so I pre paid him and he promised to get the work done so I would not have to meet him again. I highly recommend Grant and his business. 5 stars ***** I will hire him again in the future for sure. Sorry I do not have pictures to prove of evidence I am currently not at the job site.

Had a great experience with these guys who help my grandmother clean out her attic last week (old furniture) the team had no problem getting all the way up there, no piece of furniture was too heavy for them. It was cheaper than renting out a dumpster and doing it yourself!!! Highly recommend them !!!

Jaime was punctual both when he came to estimate and when he returned to complete the job. He gave a reasonable quote and stuck to it, even after he was asked to do a few extra tasks.He expertly trimmed and secured a large area of 40Ft tall bamboo and then also did a spring cleanup, trimmed hedges and cleaned all of the debris away. Since he had to go through the house to get all of the material out he was very careful to clean his shoes each time he walked through and not to hit anything in the house, or doors, hallways or walls on his way out of the building. This care was greatly appreciated by this homeowner. I would not hestitate to use his services again.

Luca, had to pull up sod that was dying, rebrick around some plants, plant grass seeds and place some mulch around 4 plants and a plant strip. He said he would be at my house by 8 a.m. He was outside working on my yard before 6:30 a.m. and completed the job before 9:30 a.m. Luca not only was on time, but he also did an excellent job. I intend to use his services for any landscaping job that I have. He comes highly recommended. Thank you Luca.😊

We are a tenant owned building on Convent Avenue in Harlem. We started a garden in the back alley several years ago. This year we decided that we needed to stream line our layout to achieve a cleaner look. We also wanted to plant more perennial foliage so that each year our backyard planting wouldn't be so cumbersome. I had a meeting with Don and he understood exactly what we were trying to achieve! Don was a pleasure to work with. He visited our courtyard space, assessed our area, made recommendations, and planted away. We have a courtyard space that has limited sunlight. Don pointed out tips that would aide our existing planting in the space and suggested appropriate plants to purchase. He was expeditious with his time in designing and planting. We are happy to have met Don and utilized his services Thanks again Don!

Was in desperate need of a backyard makeover after buying my house 4 months ago and fighting nonstop to bring the yard back to life myself. I finally gave up and let the professionals handle it. Anthony, Chris and the team fought a downpour and delays but got the job done in a day, 1450ft of sod, planted grasses and plants and roses, mulched the flower beds, put in a walkway of blue stone pavers. I finally have a yard I am proud to look at. Cant wait to see it in about 2 weeks when the sod starts to grow and the plants roots take hold, thanks again guys

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.
