The full maintenance of your landscape is based on several factors:

1. Labor Cost

One of the highest costs of hiring landscape professionals is their skilled and experienced team, which acts as the primary commercial maintenance work cost. Once the professionals visit your site, they will inspect the property and then estimate how many people would be required to carry out the job and the cost for the same. 

2. The Number of Site Visits

The cost of the landscaping service also majorly depends on the frequency of the professional visits. The prices vary on daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly visits. The number of visits depends on the condition of the property and the amount of landscape work required. You might need the professionals to visit more often if the site has many high-maintenance plants or high-traffic areas.

4. Landscape’s Conditions

Landscape maintenance might not be a considerable task and time-consuming. If the property has been well maintained in the past. But if the property is unmaintained, it will take a time, energy, and money to bring it back to shape.
