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.

The first professional gardener we have had in years...Adam knows his stuff and makes us feel that he will be able to manage our entire garden area. We are very happy we selected Adam and EDT Gardening.

As a gardener not able to be in my own garden due to renting my longtime house for the first time I cannot say enough positive things about All-N-One’s service and wonderful attention to detail. Anthony asks great questions, really listens and has good instincts, all fabulous qualities in a garden service. And this is a REAL garden service, not a lawnmowing service! That is a rare thing these days.

Sheldon’s crew did a great job. Garden looks like new, and even though it rained all over the first day he rescheduled and immediately got it done when the rain stopped. Fast and efficient.

Hey, I'd mark all five items as great if I could - Kaden was super-responsive, super-responsible, and wanted to do (and did) the best job possible. He wound up digging in an area that was wetter than either of us expected and found a good answer to resolve it. Absolutely value for money, and super quick response when gardening help is hard to find!!

The Neighborhood Gardener did a really thorough and excellent job cleaning the weeds and overgrowth from my flowerbeds. He also handled trimming back the overgrown vines and hedges, and removing the old leaves from the ferns. I discovered new plants that were covered over by leaves and weeds! Also, very easy communication and appointment set-up via Thumbtack and text message.

Elio was a delight to work with. He is very pleasant, professional and an expert in what he does. We recently bought a house and needed a lot of work done in the backyard (weeding, removing shrubs, removing bamboo, removing climbers and ivies etc.). Elio did a fantastic job! His quote was also the lowest and reasonable among others. He also informed us about plants/trees to keep an eye on in the yard and gave us good tips (garden newbie here). Our backyard looks great. I will definitely hire him again.

We contacted Right Price Landscaping for clearing our over-grown yard. Elio responded to our project very promptly to schedule a consult. He gave us a date within a week and was here early morning to work on our yard. He cleared out all our weeds, trimmed all the plants with a hedge trimmer, uprooted some deep-rooted plants, and overall tidied up our yard. He even educated us about plants that were worth keeping. Overall, the gardening services were quick, reasonably priced and value for money ! We plan to hire them for regular maintenance.
