“This is the third time we have used His Workmanship. So far we’ve had great crews on our property. They have weeded out hosta beds, dug up buckthorn, planted several shrubs and installed around 70 bags of mulch. I have referred them to my friends and plan to have them come back next summer for more work. I would highly recommend His Workmanship.” – Linda

These young men worked diligently and accomplished the project very timely.
Gavin & Benji arrived early and worked diligently to navigate two stairways with four large pieces of furniture. This was such a good solution for my husband and me since we don't have the strength (or the backs) to do it ourselves.
As my husband is having medical issues and also caring for my 95 year old mother, the yard has gotten away from me. I asked the guys for some weeding help - they did a wonderful job! Not only that, but they were 2 very responsible young men - mature beyond their years! I would not hesitate to contact His Workmanship in the future and will recommend them highly!
The 2 young men (Cam and Seth) that came to my father's home to weed the yard worked during the heat wave and cleared so many of the weeds. I am hiring them again to complete the yard. They are worth the money! 🏡
Very professional and got the job done per my request.
Sam and Silas came at the expected time and were very nice and respectful. We went around yard to see what needed to be done and were very knowledgeable about the jobs. They worked hard and even helped my husband with some yard work. They accomplished all jobs. We would love to have them back
I could not have been more pleased. In 3 hrs. they picked every weed by hand, poured 24 bags of mulch so weeds would not come back, And I have 1/2 acre of land. They were both professional, respectable and very nice young men and very hard, fast workers. They accomplished all the yard work that I needed done. I highly recommend that you use this company for any work you need done. I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
From contact to booking to schedule availability to accountability and job completion, HisWorkmanship (Logan & Chris) are unrivaled in customer service with the highest level of execution. Only thing I wish was that I'd remembered to take before/after but it wouldn't have captured their energy tackling this project successfully. Communication and follow through was superb throughout!Respectful, responsible, and most highly recommended!
Wonderful company! Great crew! Will definitely use again.
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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Most hedge trimming companies charge $40 – $50 per hour. Very rarely will a landscape company give a flat fee with an on-site estimate for such a small project like trimming bushes. Some lawn service companies will have hedge trimming as an add-on to their lawn mowing services.
Overgrown bushes can be a major eyesore. Regular shrub care will keep them looking nice. Think of it like giving your bushes a haircut. It’s not pleasant to look at someone having a bad hair day, is it? Moreover, if you don’t trim off dead branches, they could become a safety hazard because dead branches are more likely to dislodge from the bush. During a windy storm, they could get torn off and damage your property.
Lilac should be pruned right after they are done flowering in the spring. You will want to avoid trimming them in the summer or fall. The reason is because that may ruin the flowers for next year since lilacs grow the buds for the following year after the current year’s flowers have fallen off. This applies to both big and small lilac bushes. To learn more, read our recent blog post titled When and How to Prune Lilac Bushes.
Most lilacs can grow to be about 30 feet tall without any pruning, but some smaller ones only get to half that height. Lilac bushes will reach excessively tall heights unless they get pruned on a regular basis. Therefore, the ideal amount of pruning that should be done is 5-7 inches, depending on how overgrown they are.
There are 4 different classifications of hydrangea: Annabelle, PeeGee, Oakleaf, Mophead. The best time to prune Annabelle and PeeGee is during the fall, so anytime between September and November. You can trim them down low to the ground because they will grow back with new buds on the new wood every spring. Since Oakleaf and Mophead produce buds on old wood, the best time to prune them is after their summer bloom, so from mid-June to late-July.
You can start cutting back roses once the forsythias have started blooming, which is in early spring so anytime in April. But don’t overdo it because major pruning should wait until late summer or early winter. That’s when roses will begin the dormant process. As the flowers fade, you can extend the rose blooming period by deadheading them accordingly.
You will need a pair of bypass pruning shears for pruning roses. First, remove the leaves so you can clearly see the rose bush stems. Second, clip off the dead wood. Brown is dead; green is alive. Third, remove thin growth with weak stems. Fourth, take out any branches that cross over one another. Crossing branches can rub together causing disease or damage.
The two options to choose from are handheld shears or electric hedge trimmers. The benefit of shears is that you get precision. You can give a detailed manicure to each of your bushes. The drawback is that this will take a long time if you have many hedges to cut. The downside for an electric hedge clipper is that you aren’t able to give as much attention to detail, so the hedges can look sloppy from close up. However, it will get done much sooner and nobody will be able to notice the small mistakes from far away. For more information, check out our blog The Ultimate Guide to Trimming Bushes.
If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, you should hire a hedge trimming company to do it for you. You should try to get a ballpark estimate on the total cost for your trimming project. In order to get a quote, you’ll likely need to provide information about the number of bushes, how tall they are and how overgrown they’ve become. Google their company name to make sure they have good reviews online. His Workmanship offers professional hedge trimming services. Click here to get a free estimate.

My name is Sam and this is my second summer picking up clients through the His Workmanship platform. I heard about this company from my friend who attends a Christian organization called Young Life. What I like most about this side hustle is that I can work outside with my friends. I’ve made a lot of money and it’s been a great opportunity to help various people in my community. This has definitely been the best summer gig I’ve had thus far in my life.
