Josh and his team were terrific. I had some gardening and landscaping work done, along with a roof installed on my pergola. Josh made professional recommendations on various shrubs and I was happy to take his advice. He and his crew returned to make some extra adjustments to the roof and I'm very pleased with the work. I have already hired Meggs Lawn Care to do another gardening and landscaping project ... both costs were very reasonable. I'll post photos of both projects when the latest one is done.

Grassjack is mowing front and back lawns for me, sweeping patio every two weeks. I've also contracted with them for a on-going lawn fertilization, weed control and am happy with them. Because of the amount of crab grass in the front, it won't look as good until they're able to control the crab grass that is hard to cut clean and short with the push mower. I'm a picky client who requests hand-edging and trimming under shrubs where the mower doesn't cut. LOVE the quiet and plan to stay with Grassjack!

Gustavo has completed a number of electrical jobs for me and I have always been very satisfied. He has mounted a tv with wiring hidden, light fixtures, dimmer switches, a bathroom fan as well as put in underground wiring to a gazebo in the backyard. He always makes sure his work is safe and as aesthetically pleasing as possible. He has always been on time or early unless he has let me know otherwise and cleans up the work area before leaving. I am so glad to have found such a wonderful electrician. Gustavo has worked for other members of my family and they are as pleased with his work and professionalism as I am. I plan to call Gustavo for any other electrical jobs I have. Beyond being professional and competent, he has a great personality and is easy to work with.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a landscape contractor do?

Landscape contractors work from outdoor architectural or design plans to build and install hardscaping or softscaping for the client, much as a general contractor uses architectural designs to build a house. Landscape contractors are experts in soil drainage, grading, hardscaping (installing concrete paths and retaining wall, building ponds, etc.), and planting. They have heavy equipment such as excavators and tractors to prepare the land as needed.

Some landscape contractors are also landscape architects or landscape designers. The titles can be compared with those in home construction: A building or landscape architect must earn a specialized architecture degree and pass an exam to have a license. A designer — whether an interior designer or a landscape designer — does not usually require a license to work. Landscape contractors are not required by law to work from plans designed by a landscape architect, so you may work directly with the landscape contractor to specify the work you’d like done. The national average cost for large-scale landscaping projects is $10,160. Pricing can vary greatly depending on the project scope, materials and design.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
