Katy R. says, "Our project is still in the works and just a few days from being finished, but I'm so insanely happy with everything that I had to come online to rave about it. Firstly, everyone that is part of the crew is considerate, kind, and extremely hard working. Second, the team is always happy to help source quality materials for a good cost. Throughout this process I have never once felt like I was being ripped off or pushed into using more expensive materials than my budget allowed. TS pavers has worked closely with me to stick to my budget, all while never sacrificing quality. For context, this project is a complete redo of our backyard as we inherited it from the previous owner 5 years ago. The previous owner left the yard as a work in progress, which included tons of used and unused concrete blocks and bricks and boulders of all colors and shapes lying around. We are finally in a place to make the backyard our own but first needed to sort through the existing pile of materials and get them out of there. What's really amazing about this project is that we were able to salvage a lot of the existing material, versus paying an arm and a leg to have it all hauled away. It still matches and looks great with all the new materials, too! So this has saved us a ton of money on removal and material fees. Asking to repurpose old material can be tricky but I was never made to feel cheap for suggesting it. I'm thrilled that the team was able to meet me creatively and help make this happen. Lastly, I'm absolutely ASTONISHED with the results so far. Again, it's not even done but the quality of the work is perfect and beyond my expectations. The team considered existing backyard features and somehow, despite how wacky the backyard was before, everything is perfectly level now. The new pavers meet with the steps perfectly, the turf meets with the steps, too. It's a dream come true. Finally having such a usable and enjoyable outdoor space in the city feels so special. Our backyard completes the property and is a safe place for my kids to play freely within the privacy of our new little urban oasis. I highly, HIGHLY recommend working with TS pavers. They've outdone themselves. I'll update this review with before and after photos once we're 100% done in the next week or two."See more

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.
