  • Planting and managing flower beds
  • Light landscaping
  • Spring and fall cleanup
  • Cleaning eaves troughs
  • Shrub Pruning (performed by an experienced gardener)
  • Hauling lawn/garden refuse to compost dump
  • Odd jobs (sweeping garage, assembling patio furniture, etc.)

Rates for Yard Services

We will assess your yard with you to discuss the rates we will charge.  Rates are scaled to reflect the size and complexity of the job and income. Typical pricing examples include:

  • Mowing from $11 – 25 per job
  • Garden work from $12 – $28 per hour
  • Eaves cleaning $18 – $28 per hour
  • Hauling to compost dump  $25 per trip (reasonable amount of bags)

Note. If our rates are a barrier, please speak to us as we want to ensure low income older adults, seniors, those with failing health and the physically challenged individual can access these important services.
