Find the best local landscapers with NYC Home Pros

local landscapers

As the weather improves, the best local landscapers are in-demand. That’s because New York City, Northern New Jersey, and lower Hudson Valley homeowners start paying attention to their backyards, balconies, and roof decks when the soil is above 55-degrees for a week straight.  

Not only does it improve the appeal of your neighborhood, it can increase your property value by four or five percent.

But the first step is the cleanup, the most important task you can do this month:

  • Prune away dead and damaged branches
  • Cut back and divide perennials as needed
  • Clean up around plants, compost yard waste
  • Prep damaged lawn areas for spring seeding

You’ll be thankful that you did this come July — when you’re at the beach, not tending to the garden. 

It helps to have a basic roadmap for landscape and garden design. Find the right landscaper in the amNY Home Pros directory. They’re overgrown with landscapers and gardeners. Each listing includes project galleries, bio information, testimonials, and contact information so you can reach out to them directly. 

Whether you’re in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Northern New Jersey or lower Hudson Valley, here are 10 of the best landscapers near you.
