Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a gardener?

  • Mulching
  • Lawn maintenance
  • Trees and shrub removal
  • Trees, shrub and flower planting

  • Etc.

Also, read their customer reviews and inspect photos that showcase the gardeners’ work. And contact several gardeners near you to compare prices and decide who’s the best fit.

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 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.

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.

I never thought working in the garden could be so much fun! We worked on trimming my grapevines and it turned into an amazing educational experience for me, learning about fertilizer, organic pest control, heat needs for grapes and how to help my vines thrive. It was so that the time flew by. Would absolutely recommend Noble Root for all your garden needs.

He's to "die" for...never have I had a gardener who's quality of work and work ethic is equal to Dario's. He's a jewell and I look forward to working with him for a very long time.

Errin and his team came and replaced some arbor vida, moved a plant and cleaned up the garden beds around our large yard. They were fast and thorough. We'll be hiring them again.

C&C turned my overgrown and neglected backyard into a garden paradise that’ll provide us with a wonderful space to enjoy and entertain for many seasons to come. Definitely would recommend for small yard project.

I cannot say enough good things about Ben and his crew Danny and Caleb. They created a beautiful container garden in a very difficult area. These men love and know their plants and it shows! They took great care with transplanting and preparing the soil mix perfectly. I’m going to hire them back to help with some landscape lighting next. Ben is a kind soul and they are all hard-working and fun to share gardening knowledge with, I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you Ben and crew!

Joe Grab Landscape & Tree Service was excellent. They were completely professional and personable, quoted me a fair price and went above and beyond the requirements of the job and cleaned up thoroughly. I definitely plan to keep in touch and solicit their help with spring and summer garden and landscaping needs!

Waaaay overpriced for what they did (basically just cut the grass) and they didn’t even do a good job of that! I was expecting a proper service for $235 but they did the bare minimum. The main guy was also supposed to give me a quote on some more work - he didn’t bother. I’m looking for a regular gardener but will never use these guys again.
