My garden has some good plants but was in need of some weeding & pruning love, and Kim really delivered, despite the fall weather. She was full of good gardening advice and experience, and I look forward to continuing to work with her next season.

Details: Residential • Small (less than 1,000 sq ft) • Over a month ago • No, I prefer no herbicides to be used • No, I don't need to be there • Only one time

Kim is awesome! She's been super helpful in going me get my garden transformed from a weed infested mess to a beautiful area I enjoy spending time in :) She has given me great advice on how to care for my garden. She helped me identify all the plants that I had growing and figure out what I should keep and what needs to go. I'm slowly starting to pick up on some of the information, and my garden is getting slightly more populated, bit by bit :) I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Details: Residential • Maintain an existing garden • Small (1,000 - 2,500 sq ft) • No, I need help buying plants • I don't need a sprinkler or drip system installed • As needed • No additional services needed

We hired Kim to help clean up our garden, which was completely overgrown with weeds. She cleared it in no time while being careful not to damage the shrubs and plants we wanted to keep. Kim is efficient and very responsive. I also appreciate that she doesn’t use any chemical herbicides. Please note that there are certain jobs that Kim doesn’t do (i.e. cutting grass over larger areas).

Details: Residential • Small (less than 1,000 sq ft) • Over a month ago • No, I prefer no herbicides to be used • Yes, I must be present • Every other week

My 92-yr-old mom's garden beds were covered in weeds and grass. Kim made the garden lovely again. More than that, she was absolutely delightful in her interactions with my mom (who wanted to "help"). Kim is a professional. She knows her plants and her communication skills are superb. She is a delight to work with.

Details: Residential • Medium (1,000 - 5,000 sq ft) • Over a month ago • No, I prefer no herbicides to be used • No, I don't need to be there • Only one time

Kim is a real gem! She is so much more than landscaping help; she's a real gardener. She does hand pruning and hand weeding. Kim can give you solid advice on plant care and weed control. She's professional and knowledgeable, and though ready to advise, she focused on implementing my vision. To summarize, her work was outstanding, and my garden looks so much better than it did. Neighbours have already been asking me who worked on my yard. I will definitely be working with her again.

Hi Martha- Thank you for your thoughtful words. I enjoy working with you as well. You have a beautiful space which will be a beautiful gem in your neighborhood once construction on your new fence is completed. Cheers- Kim

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $70-$80 per hour which is the going rate on Thumbtack.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Generally, a client will contact me with project ideas. I try to do a meet and greet prior to accepting the project so each party involved is comfortable.. After meeting a contract is emailed outlining expectations, time frame (approximate), cost, materials required from the client, start time & date. I also offer maintenance, because weeds have no boundaries.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Technically, gardening is a long-time hobby, which started when I was quite young. My goal is to take the Master Gardener Course through WSU, which commences after Covid. I take my time to do the job correct the first time so each homeowner is proud of their outdoor space.
