Any idea how much a landscaper costs? I've got three small planting areas around my back patio. I really want them spruced up a bit. In one of the beds, I've got two bushes that have gotten too big, although I do trim them back but they're bigger than I want now so I'd like them dug up and moved to my front yard.

One of the other beds has so huge hostas that I've had for about 10 years in there. I want them dug up and separated into 2 per plant. Also, a former roommate had planted some climbing vine that was supposed to flower but it never did. I dug it up a couple of years ago but apparently didn't get it all because it keeps coming back. So I want it out of there.

In the third area, there's nothing really there anymore but there's too much dirt (aka nasty red mud) and I'd like it taken out and some better soil put in.

If I could get those things done, then I could plant what I wanted.

How much do you think a landscaper would cost for doing that? Or if anyone needs some extra money, is anyone interested in doing it for me?

I heard its pretty cheap if you get off your lazy ass and do it yourself....

I could be wrong, but I think people have been doing it for years that way...

Just a hunch...

Yeah, thats not a big enough space to require a landscaper. Just stock up at the nursery and do it yourself on a weekend.

That wasn't the question. I don't have the strength, tools, or know-how. I've already attempted a couple of times and don't intend to do it again. There are some things I'd rather pay someone to do. This is one of them.

That's fairly judgmental coming from a government employee
