    I’m looking to have a bit of yard work done and am needing a recommendation. Here’s the deal: we have a lot of plants/bulbs etc. that I don’t want destroyed by someone who thinks it’s all weeds (because there are a lot of those, too). So I want to go with someone who knows a bit about what they’re doing. At the same time, I don’t need like a full-blown “arborist” per se, as this is all pretty easy stuff (pruning hedges, weeding, mowing/edging, etc.) We just want kind of an end-of-summer blitz and clean up.

    Anyone have any good companies/people to recommend? Does this fall under “lawn care” companies scope? Or…what exactly should I be looking for?



    How large is your yard/garden? My friend/gardener would be great, but she’s pretty busy and can’t always fit one-time jobs in the schedule. Any way, I’ll ask and let you know.

    I would look for “full-service maintenance” or “gardener” rather than “lawn care,” but that’s probably not much of a distinction. Northwest Botanicals is a good WS company, especially if you are looking to build a relationship for the ongoing health/maintenance of your garden. (Maybe not so much if you just need this one-time service.)

    Plant Amnesty has an arborist/gardener referral program, trained people who know/care about the integrity of plants. If you don’t get any specific reccos here, they should be able to hook you up.



    Another shout out for NW Botanicals. They are great to work with and very knowledgeable as well as being a local WS business!



    Our yard is pretty large, I think the lot is around 7500 sq feet, but including house. Most of the yard is grass though, the areas with bulbs/plants are not large. Does that help, Seaopgal?

    Thanks, I will look into NW Botanicals.



    I don’t have any bulbs in the ground and could really just use some help with weeding. Does anyone have any good recommendations for just that? Thanks!



    Hi, Al and the team here.



    Strongly second vote of support for Al. Have used him and his team several times with total satisfaction and in fact just mentioned to spouse I need to get in touch with him again.
