Paul Jr. and his team recently completed my new backyard. Paul Jr. was very responsive to every question and request I had throughout the project. His communication alone would be a reason I would recommend him for any landscaping work. His team did a great job and finished the project quickly so my family was able to enjoy our new backyard before Christmas.

Lenin and crew are fantastic, quick and did an extremely good job of cleaning up my backyard. I plan on using them on a recurring basis as well for maintenance. Don't think twice before hiring them, their work is top notch.

We are very pleased with the work that Alex and Hugo did with our front yard. I hired them on Tuesday and the work was completed on Thursday. Was very impressed. They put in sod, filled in our rock and got our irrigation system working like brand new again. The price was very good. And I like that they have a guarantee on the sod. They were very pleasant to work with and made sure everything looked the way we wanted it. We will definitely hire them for our backyard project in the spring.

I highly recommend this company. I feel that I got a great pricing deal for quality work on my backyard! My weeding troubles were quite extensive. I thought I’d have to pay a lot more for the work Jason and his crew did. My backyard now looks great! I’m very happy with the service I received.

Hired this company to have 3 trees removed from our backyard. They were on time and very courteous and completed the job without any issues. They hauled away the debris and left the backyard clean. Their quote was competitive as well. I will definitely hire them again for any future jobs!

I'd had someone scheduled to trim a ficus on a Friday & they never showed or returned my call. Saturday morning, I found Thumbtack & put in a request. Trimming Arizona responded & agreed to come by & give a quote. I ended up hiring them & was incredibly pleased I did. Shawn & his crew were friendly, yet professional, worked quickly & efficiently & actually went above & beyond what I expected them to do. Shawn was very knowledgeable & shared alot of beneficial information about my ficus. Shawn also looked at my backyard & offered suggestions to increase the health of a sickly queen palm. I am definitely going to call Shawn when I'm ready to have the palm trimmed as he & his crew were just awesome. I would highly recommend Trimming Arizona & in fact, already have! One of my neighbors came by as Shawn was finishing up & took one of his cards!

We are extremely happy with the outcome of our backyard!! HDK was so professional. We received a solid price quote at our first meeting which was nice. The price was extremely fair!! They kept to the schedule even when we changed the plan a little on day of turf install. We would absolutely use them again and have already referred our friends and family!

I hired M.A.R Landscapes to trim two palm trees in my backyard that were about 20-25 ft in height. Their quoted price was the best by at least $70. The initial appointment was set for 7am on a Saturday. I received a text the night before stating it would not be that early and probably closer to 8:30am. At 9am I had not received any updates and had to reach out to them. I was informed the dump was packed which put him behind schedule so I asked what time I should expect them to show up. About 30 minutes later I received a response stating that they would not be arriving until 10:30am. I already had plans that morning which this delay had already pushed back so I requested to reschedule. He was very apologetic and let me know he would be available Monday at any time. We scheduled for 7am; the night before he confirmed our appointment and showed up promptly. The process took a little longer than I expected but they also skinned one of the trees which was not part of the request but extremely appreciated. They did a great job trimming the palm trees and cleaned up very well. Overall it was a solid experience and I would definitely hire them again if I needed any landscape work. A little proactive communication and I would have given a 5-star.

I though I was at my wit's end when another landscaper quoted me an astronomically high price to do an initial cleanup on my tiny lawn. Then I found Gilberto on Thumbtack. He was at my house within an hour of my phone call, and he and his partner did a fantastic job with my front and backyard. Mowing, clean up and weed-eating took less than an hour, and the price was more than reasonable. I will be calling Gilberto anytime I need landscaping services.

BC did stucco work on our old concrete block wall surrounding our entire backyard. It looks like a new backyard now and the wall is a focal point instead of the worst part of our backyard. They were on time, clean, and always asked what else they could help with. I found out they do pergola work too and I may use them again!

We have a small stone paver patio in our backyard that we love having and using. Recently we decided to redo it, make it larger and an over all nicer look and for my husband's birthday i wanted to have it for a backyard theater. We first attempted to do it all on our own, took 2 days in before we decided to look else where. A&A masonry was super helpful with our needs and wants. Where always on time, super nice and very professional. They even suggested a better layout, and they have a wonderfully decent price. They even offered to just charge for labor as we were able to provide all the material. Thank you A&A for providing many soon to be family memories.

Carlos did a great job leveling my front yard. He took out 2 good size mounds of dirt, removed multiple boulders, spread some dirt in low spots in my backyard and also removed 2 large bushes in just a couple hours. He is reliable, punctual, and gives very fair prices for his work. I will definitely use him in the future for sure.

Lopez Landscaping was not the cheapest quote for the 3 palm trees we wanted trimmed. But....were the only ones to come and give us a price in the time frame they had said they would be over. We had multiple companies said they would call us back or even come to house to give us a quote. Only one other company showed up...5 hours after the original time they had said they would be over. But by then, Lopez Landscaping not only answered the call...we also had a price and a set time (sameday) for them to do the work. Not only was Yari very fast and super efficient in trimming our 3 palm trees. Veronica was very timely in keeping me updated on what time the crew was on their way over. All in all...I will not hesitate to call on Lopez Landscaping for the next time I need tree trimming done.

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.
