These two young men were thorough, professional, courteous, and prompt. In addition, their fees are very reasonable! I’m looking forward to using their service again.
Communication and scheduling was easy and efficient, the young men showed up on time, were polite and completed everything I asked for
The Team did a great job raking leaves and removing weeds. They are very professional and made sure that they understood the job before starting it. They work very hard and are very gracious. I have used them numerous times and always had an excellent experience and outcome.
We cannot say enough good things about My Workmanship. Communication with Eric was clear and fantastic start to finish. The workers, Nate and Evan were prompt, courteous, hardworking and did a fantastic job. We are just thrilled and will definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you.Elizabeth and Alan FletcherMahtomedi, MN
The crew, Nick and Marco, arrived on time. They were courteous and did a really good job. Price was as advertised. Would use them again.
I would definitely hire again. The two young men worked hard to accomplish what I asked them to do.
The crew showed up early and were very kind. They worked very hard and did amazing work!! I will definitely reach out to them again. Enjoy the before and after photos!
I am pleased to relay that my experience with His Workmanship was beyond expectations. With Father's Day this coming weekend, and a couple of cookouts planned, all the planting beds on our property were in desperate need of weeding. Eric's response to my initial inquiry was within minutes and the crew showed up in under 48 hours. Matt, Scott and Rory did a fantastic job and were extremely polite and courteous. Couldn't have asked for a better result in any aspect!
A friend highly recommended His Workmanship and they didn’t disappoint. I hired two workers from 8-1 to lay edging, landscape fabric and rock. Josiah arrived at 8 but his partner didn’t make it until after 9. When I emailed Eric that only Josiah was there, Eric immediately contacted another worker to come out. By 9:30 I had three young men working on my project. They finished up early and when I went to approve it, it was beautifully done. I have more landscaping to do and will hire them again for my next project.
They came early and got to work right away. Before them I made an appointment with another landscaping company our schedule appointment was between 10-12. They called 5hr and 21min latter. No need to say anything else. I placed them on my DNR list. Where one won't do His Workmanship will! Their on my Angie's list.
The two man crew came exactly at the appointed time. They were courteous and completed my job exactly as I asked them to. Great experience!
Exceptional work! Did all that i asked and in a timely manner. Communication was spot on! Highly recommend
These two men helped clean out a lower level office and garage and did a super good job with all the heavy stuff in awkward stuff. they were able to get it all in the dumpster and also helped with smaller items as well.
The work done was excellent; the garden bed was dug up so the weeds were removed, weed control fabric was laid and then mulch. The workers were efficient and worked hard.
His Workmanship went above and beyond to meet our needs. Would recommend, and would select their service in the future!
Thank you, Emilio and Cesar! You were a pleasure to be with and you went above and beyond with kindness and hard work! You both were simply amazing.
I needed quick help to fix a Landscaping issue. I was scheduled quickly. Communication was top notch. Team arrived early and completed what I requested. Highly recommend!
The crew that came was punctual, diligent, and polite. Both were hard workers who asked me for clarification when necessary. They did a good job, and the areas being worked on look great! They went above and beyond with the task. I would welcome them back in the future.
His Workmanship did an excellent job for us. Arrived on time and finished on time! Will definitely use them for our future landscaping needs!
Very helpful staff and responded immediately to my email request. Damion and Sebastian were so wonderful and checked in to ask questions when needed. I really appreciate all the work they accommplished!

Frequently Asked Questions

Most weeding companies and gardening services charge by the hour, not by the bid. Hourly rates tend to range from $30 – $50 per hour per person. It’ll be on the higher end if the garden is on hilly terrain or if the weeds require heavy digging to remove. On the flip side, prices will be lower if the weeds are small (like thistles) and the ground surface is flat. A thorough weeding of an overgrown garden that’s medium-sized will range from $250 – $350. Larger gardens can cost between $350 – $500 to clear out. Since weeding gardens is a recurring service that requires several visits per year, you could possibly get a better deal if you commit to being a repeat customer. For further reading, check out our blog How Much Does a Gardener Cost in 2024?
The most efficient way to keep weeds from sprouting up in the first place is by laying down a weed barrier. Garden weed control mats are designed to allow water and air to seep through, but to block the sunlight which prevents new weed growth. In this way, your garden plants can thrive without being choked out by weeds. Weed barrier can be high quality and cost more or it can be low quality and cost less. I recommend making the investment in your garden by purchasing the heavy duty weed barrier. It’s simply not worth getting the cheap stuff, only to have weeds start growing through the fabric or directly on top of the fabric. In order to prevent weed growth, you need to be able to differentiate between weeds and plants. To learn more about this topic, check out our blog 17 Lawn and Garden Weeds: How to Identify and Control Them.
While it may be tempting to lay barrier over the weeds, it’s cutting a corner so I don’t recommend it. Why? Because weeds will make the fabric harder to lay flat since the ground will be bumpy. This will make the fabric installation process much more challenging. (More on installing weed barrier in the question below.) Plus, there is no guarantee that the garden fabric will suffocate and kill the weeds. If the weeds have a deep root system and some light and water happens to sneak through the black fabric, then the weeds may grow straight through the mat blocker. In sum, give yourself a blank slate to work with prior to laying down garden fabric.
You will need the follow items: a utility knife, landscape staples, and a hammer (or rubber mallet). Make sure your garden bed is cleared of all weeds and has only dirt. Lay one strip of fabric and staple down the outside corners. Then lay another strip that has 3-4 inches of overlap with the first strip. Staple down the overlapping part so you secure both strips with one staple. This strategy will cut in half the number of staples you need to use. Long strips are better than shorter ones. For further reflections on weed barrier, read my article which proposes 4 Steps for Getting Rid of Weeds.
It’s not easy to install weed barrier if your garden is already fully stocked with plants. So you’ll need a second person to help. Be sure to wait for a calm day with no wind. Begin by stapling one side of the fabric strip in the ground and have one person hold the other side. They should pull it tight so there’s no slack. The other person should use a utility knife to cut an X shape where the current plants are located. Make the incision just big enough for the plant. Once the cuts are made, lay the fabric down on the ground and fold the flaps underneath the fabric strip. If you don’t want to fold the extra fabric underneath, then you can cut the excess fabric with your utility knife. Repeat this process until your whole garden bed is covered with the protective weed mat. For a more comprehensive answer, read our blog titled How to Install Landscape Fabric for Weed Control.
Most weed killers are designed to evaporate within 2-3 days. So it’s safe to plant in your garden 4-5 days after spraying weed killer. If you want to be extra cautious, you should wait 1-2 weeks. That said, the glyphosate contained in weed killer will harm and probably destroy your plants if direct contact is made with any part of the plant. So you should avoid spraying herbicide within 1-2 feet of your plants, especially because the soil soaks up and spreads the toxins in weed killer. For an organic alternative, you could try mixing together the following ingredients: vineager, salt and dish soap. This natural approach can be an effective tool against weed growth, though not as reliable as store bought weed killer concentrate.
You want to avoid spraying large quantities of weed killer over a wide area of garden space. Instead, you should use precision by getting the spray nozzle very close to the weed you want dead. Within 1-2 inches is best. Then spray the weed with 2-3 squirts so that it’s fully saturated. You should aim for the bottom of the weed so the chemicals get as close to the root system as possible. Think of your spray bottle as a sniper not a buckshot. For this same reason, you don’t want to spray on a windy day lest you run the risk of killing your precious plants and flowers. For more tips on what not to do, read my blog 11 Things to Avoid When Removing Weeds.
Garden clean up is best done on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Regular and consistent flower bed maintenance is important. Why? Because baby weeds have yet to establish a secure root system whereas adult weeds are firmly rooted in the ground. So it’ll be much easier to pull out weeds when they are young than when they are old. That said, you can get away with weed control on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. However, with intervals this long, you should be prepared to spend more time clearing the garden and more effort digging out the weeds. A trowel may not be good enough. You might need a spade shovel to get the job done.
It depends on what kind of weeds are in your garden. If you are pruning roses or removing thistles, then sturdy work gloves will be helpful to keep you from getting pricked by the thorns. Gloves will also protect your hands if you’re applying chemicals to kill the weeds. But if your garden doesn’t have prickly weeds and you don’t plan to use herbicide, then you should be safe to pull weeds barehanded. Some gardeners get a sense of satisfaction when they get their hands dirty. I’m not exactly sure why but perhaps it has to do with a feeling of accomplishment.
It might be tempting to just cut the tops off the weeds but this should be avoided. Why? Because the weeds just grow right back within weeks. Instead, you should use a small hand shovel, called a trowel, to dig out the weeds by the roots. If it rained the day before, then you might even be able to pull the weeds out by hand since rain water loosens up the roots. One advantage of pulling weeds with bare hands is that you’re able to get a better grip on the bottom stem, which increases the likelihood that the entire root system comes up with the weed itself.
For the DIY enthusiasts, I hope the above FAQ offers some insights that serve to motivate you to reclaim your green thumb by getting down and dirty weeding gardens. However, for those less ambitious folk, you’re not alone if the thought of weed removal isn’t your idea of a good time. Saving up some extra money to hire a garden weeding service is your best option.
