There are so many out there and quite a range of skill level/services and price. I would get recommendations from nearby neighbors. For one thing, you can see their yard and then if you hire them, a truck will come (on one day per week) to take care of both homes. In my neighborhood, there is at least one different truck every day of the week on our street (and noise) since each homeowner uses someone different...
Most of my neighbors use yard maintenance crews who basically mow and blow. Landscapers are used to come in and do complete 24 hour makeovers.
I see very little gardening done except by homeowners. If you can find a true gardener who plants and nurtures flowers, veg, shrubbery and trees, then please pass the name along.
All my neighbors use mow and (illegal) blow. Can anyone recommend a good gardener?
I have been searching for a "real" gardener for years. All the gardeners that I have tried so far have no idea how to take care of sick plants, prune correctly, foresee problems or "have green thumbs". I can't understand why the problem of poor gardening skills is so wide spread. And it is not just gardening. House cleaners also "slack" a lot, not on purpose, they just seem to have a different notion of "quality work".
Angie's List is the best way to find any service worker or contractor or craftsperson. It is a membership-only website and as a result does not have phony ratings or reviews. I have used them for years and swear by their listings.
They are also extremely helpful by phone in case of questions or concerns.
Money well spent.
Can you tell me the exact web address
