Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a gardener?

To find a good gardener near you, compare top-rated pros online. Read their profiles to find out what their specialities and list of services are. For example, do they offer:

  • Mulching
  • Lawn maintenance
  • Trees and shrub removal
  • Trees, shrub and flower planting
  • Weed removal
  • Etc.

Also, read their customer reviews and inspect photos that showcase the gardeners’ work. And contact several gardeners near you to compare prices and decide who’s the best fit.

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.

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.

Heather did an excellent job cleaning up my garden beds. She was very pleasant to work with, communicative, and professional. She has a great attention to detail and I was impressed by her ideas on how to improve my garden. I would definitely hire her again. Great service!

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.

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.

My husband and I went around searching for bids but we did not really know what we wanted to do with our outdoor area. All we knew was that we wanted hedges, some ornamental flowers, and an area to grow vegetables and herbs. Jose provided not only a bid but suggestions on what we can grow and where we could place it. In our initial conversation Jose proved himself to be very knowledgeable with the different types of plants native to Washington and those that are invasive. Jose has an eye for detail as he took the time to send my husband and I different ideas he had for flowers and plants along with photos and rough sketches of their placement. He worked very diligently and provided advice and suggestions for future garden ideas along the way. An example of this happened when he was at the garden store and noticed a plant he thought would compliment our garden. Jose took the time to message us and offer it as an option to the current project and we accepted because it was a great looking plant and Idea. I will definitely be hiring Jose for future projects and recommending him to friends. He is a very knowledgeable, hard working, and thoughtful gardener.

I had a desperately overgrown garden following a year-long construction/major remodel of my home that was in need of immediate help before family arrived for a visit. Heather and her crew jumped right in and did a great job, on time and under budget. I would definitely hire her and her crew again.

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.

Heather trimmed up my garden before I moved out of the place. I'm rating her average because, while her gardening skills proved good, her communication and professionalism could use some improvement. First, we had an appointment for her to come estimate the job without her confirming that she'd be there (after she'd canceled once for personal reasons). After agreeing to the estimate, we scheduled an appointment for Wednesday afternoon at 4pm. Wednesday morning at 1:53am she sent an email telling me that she'd be there between 7-8:30am. I took an unexpected morning to work from home to make sure I met her, but 8:30am came and went with no Heather. I called her 3 times before she picked up and angrily told me she was "caught in traffic," with a tone that made it seem that it was my fault. I left and went to work, but my roommate, who came home around then, said she finally showed up at about 9:30am.

These guys do excellent work. I recently moved and the yard of the house was overgrown which included a large established blackberry bramble. Aureliano was able to come out for an estimate soon after I reached out to him. He scheduled his team to come out the next week to spend all day getting the yard back into good shape. They worked efficiently and professionally to get this huge job done in one day. The whole yard looks great! I will be hiring them for yard maintenance moving forward. I highly recommend Curb Appeal Gardener to anyone looking for help with their yard.
