My Name is Douglas Beaton and I am the owner and operator of Ecopure Garden, a eco-friendly gardening and landscape maintenance service. I use no synthetic fertilizers or harmful chemicals, and I operate either highly efficient equipment or battery operated equipment that helps reduce air and noise pollution. I currently have over 36 years of experience here in the Pacific Northwest through formal education, training, and on the job experience where I have worked for some of the biggest and best companies in the landscape industry, positions being held as Laborer, Foreman, to Supervisory and upper management. I have also owned my own companies where I maintained private homes and estates, for regular homeowners, rental houses, vacation homes, to mansions and multiple acreage estates valued at over $100 Million dollars. Unlike many of my competitors I actually love my job and prefer to do all the work myself. Therefore I take on a limited amount 20-30 year round clients. I have a very high attention to details, and because of my experience I am able to quickly learn and customize my services around each clients wishes to provide you with a service which you not only will you appreciate, but also come to rely on as I am a very honest, trustworthy and dependable person who truly loves what he does, as most of my clients say that I make my job look easy. I charge a competitive hourly fee, No flat or hidden fee's. Most of my clients opt for a every other week service, which coincides perfectly with a chemical free, organic yard. All my clients get a monthly invoice via email at beginning of the following month that clearly shows the time, materials and/or supplies used, and a break down of all prices included. Generally after my business is established and because I take on a limited amount of clients, I usually have 1-2 openings in my schedule per season as I find it easy to retain many of my clients year after year as I provide a carefree experience where my clients don't have to continually ask, complain, or find any problems with service as I have routinely had many clients that I had never met in person or had only met once in the multiple season's that I had worked for them.

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.
