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.

It took some back and forth to determine when they were coming to do the job, but once they got here they did a great job! They quickly trimmed the trees and blew away the debris a requested. They didn't even trample my plants under the tree as most landscapers do.

Numero Uno is the best! After living here in Fountain Hills for 17 years we have had many landscapers --some ok & some not so good. i have to say that this is the best company ever! They were very professional, did a meticulous job & were more than fair priced. They went a step beyond. i felt that they treated our yard as their own. Our citrus tress have never looked better! Can't say enough good things about them. Thank you so very much Chris, Martin & Gabriel! We will be calling again soon & recommending you to all our family & friends! With great appreciation!

James and his crew did an excellent job with our major irrigation and gravel installation project. They also fixed a few leaks, put in paver walkways, and gave us plenty of free advice. Their work was speedy and thorough, so needless to say we are as pleased as punch. We had multiple quotes from other landscapers, but HDK Lawns and More was the most responsive, easiest to work with, and all of it at a price much lower than their competition. James was consistently friendly and communicated with us at all turns. Even when we changed our minds or pointed out something we wanted done a bit differently, he did not bat an eye and was wonderful with jumping on the changes and working with us to give us exactly what we specified at no extra charge. Even little touches we had not specified like angling our walkway turns were completed perfectly simply as a matter of providing us the best quality work. We are keeping their information handy for any future projects because our experience with them was absolutely perfect. All my best to James and his company in the future!

The work quality is excellent. Your not going to meet a nicer guy. Thank you Roberto for the excellent job you and your crew did to improve our lifestyle. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a fair and professional landscaper to give you a call. Sincerely, John Raynolds

Recently hired them to extend and improve my backyard patio by installing pavers. Overall I was pleased with the friendliness, professionalism, and knowledge of the workers that gave me a quote and installed the pavers. My project area was relatively small compared to most and was completed in under a day. The finished project looks great and I have no regrets having pavers installed or hiring Cosnova. My one gripe was that some of the gaps between the pavers toward one side were missing the paver sand. Not a huge deal and not enough for me to give 4 stars but will require me to go and buy a $20 jug of sand and do some touch ups before I seal my patio.

Eddie was one of 5 landscapers I called, kept his appointment, and was punctual. After showing 4d's photo's of what I wanted, and discussing and tweeking, I received a quote which was reasonable. Eddie was efficient, clean, and addressed his and my concerns quickly. While the project came in slightly over budget, it was well worth it. His guys were polite and professional. I took Eddie out of his comfort zone with my project and he did a great job listening and doing the whole project.

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.

Alex did a great job transforming my backyard from a plain dirt yard to what you see in my picture. He arrived on time like he said he would and best of all, got my project done within my limited budget. I will definitely call him back again and I highly recommend him to anyone. Great working with you Alex. Thanks.

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.
