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.

Leslie knows so much about plants and gardening! She was very considerate in letting me know if she was running even a little bit late. I am delighted with my beautiful new hosta garden!

Cary was FABULOUS in helping me by planting my two new, young pink muhly grass plants. My ground and the nature of the grass's growing needs required a bit of skill and finess which I don't have...but Cary surely does. He planted them beautifully, suggesting a much better placement than I had in mind, too. It will be so much fun watching them grow, in spots that will cover parts of my AC in the future. I rest well knowing that they have been given their best start towards a happy life in my yard. Now I hope I can follow up Cary's start with care as needed Cary was knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, thoughtful, carefully cleaned up when he finished, looked for extra ways to make himself useful, and generous in offering extra resources that could be useful to me. He gave me a terrific price for his work, too. The only reason I didn't mark punctuality is that we had a sort of open scheduling for the day, with no definitive appointment time, so I don't really know how he handles a specific appointment time. But he was quickly responsive to every email and phone call in arranging his work for me, as well as following up afterward. I am SURE I will be working with Cary in the future, so glad to know he's around to help as needed. I recommend him highly for gardening services for others! 😇🌷🗽💜
