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.

He was fantastic! The kitchen backsplash turned out better than I could have imagined. He was professional, on time, and a huge help when deciding what I wanted to do from a design standpoint. I had received quotes from 7 different contractors and he was 25% less than everyone else. I will definitely hire him again and would refer him to family and friends

The project for Chris and his crew was to prep front yard, lay brick border and spread rock. I meet with three different landscaping companies and Numbero Uno Tree and Palms had the best price by far. What impressed me the most was the time Chris spent with me during the initial quote. Chris spent a good 45 minutes talking through the project. He was on time for the appointment, actually early which never happens. In addition, during the appointment Chris recommended an outstanding palm tree person. I got the name from Chris and Lucio was everything Chris spoke about. He did an outstanding job on my trees and now I have Lucio for life to do my palm trees. I do want to say that Chris and his brother have done an outstanding job. I got to be part of the process which I really appreciated. Both Chris and his brother were very polite, I could ask questions throughout the process. What I really like the best was that they did not rush through the project. Numero Uno Tree and Palms will be the company I use from here on out for all project at my house. They are definitely Numero Uno in my book. Thanks Chris and Adrian for a job well done.

I was so pleased with Lane. The job I hired him to do was not as big as I was told by two previous contractors. He was thorough and took the time to make sure the job was done right the first time. The quality of his work was excellent. He explained what needed to be replaced and why and answered all of my questions. I would definately hire him again if the opportunity presented itself.

Many years we lived in this area, we have had landscape projects done from time to time, but none has compared to the HDK Landscape, James and Cory takes a holistic view of each project, addressing drainage, erosion, and other daily issues in order to achieve an aesthetically beautiful landscape that is environmentally respectful and will endure over time. This month, HDK Landscape and outstanding crew transformed our muddy backyard , uninspiring landscape in the front of our house into a beautiful, inviting garden, all with less than a week's notice, finishing in time before pool guys started the pebble tech. From planting trees to turf to irrigation , travertine and pavers. BBQ, Lights as well as vegetable garden. I agree 100% with other reviewers about the factors that differentiate the HDK Landscapes from the competition: OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE: James and Cory went out of their way to accommodate our request for a landscape transformation on very short notice. James met with us in the evenings, he shared ideas about other completed projects so I could better understand ideas, and he re-arranged work schedule and that of his crew in order to get the work done in time. From project beginning to end, James and all of the crew members have been extraordinarily courteous and professional! EXCELLENT CLIENT COMMUNICATION: There will be no surprises in any project that the James undertakes, James truly collaborates with clients in order to accomplish their objectives. James and Cory begins by listening carefully, explaining what is feasible, suggesting alternative plans if infeasible, presenting itemized costs, revising plans based on our feedback, and keeping us informed every step of the way during project execution. FRUGAL & KIDS SAFE USE OF MATERIALS: Cost consciousness and Kids safe are the foundation of every project that the HDK undertakes. Designs that will not only please clients. They never tries to upsell! Explains the possibilities, but completely understands and respects budgetary constraints. Indeed, plans to split many of plantings from last year to use in this year's project rather than purchasing new plants. My wife and I very much appreciate "no pressure" approach! Ultimately, James cost consciousness results in very reasonable prices as compared to the competition. SUPERB DESIGN: James and Cory has an amazing design sense, using a wide variety of color, texture, and size to create an extraordinary landscape. create unique hardscape designs that enhance both the beauty and longevity of the landscape design. Together, James and Cory achieve amazing results! We are so happy to have found the HDK Land scape for my back yard and patio.

Martin Acosta was absolutely amazing and we appreciated his work very much! His level of expertise, workmanship and skills were incredible. Not only does he have the professionalism, integrity and quality desired, but he also has a kind, friendly and thoughtful demeanor. His attitude, work ethic and hard work is admirable. He repaired a portion of our backyard wall that was destroyed in a storm, after another contractor had already repaired it, with unfavorable results. Now, thanks to Martin, the wall has matching brick color, a clean look and an aesthetically pleasing quality. Martin provides excellence in customer service and in every aspect of his work. We couldn't be happier with the results or found a better person for this job. This was our initial experience with Thumbtack, and Martin provided a great first impression of the company and contractors. For all of our masonry needs, we will call Martin Acosta first. And we will continue to use Thumbtack for any services we may need in the future.

I worked with Brandon to setup and execute the work on my yard. He was extremely responsive and professional. He made several recommendations on my request to ensure that the finished job would look great and I would be satisfied. Brandon was quick to get the job going and made sure that everything was completed in the end. I would and will recommend Miller Brothers to friends and neighbors if they have hardscaping needs.

We hired Landscape Doctors for artificial turf installation and they did a fantastic job! Both Andy and Eva (the owners) were easy to work with, provided amazing customer service, and a great price. They helped us make sure everything was cleared through our HOA prior to getting the job done and even made some improvements to the existing edging around the grass. Their crew arrived on time and worked very hard, completing the job in just one day. After the job was completed Eva came out to make sure everything was perfect. I highly recommend hiring them for any of your landscaping needs... You will be happy you did!

I had a severe windstorm bring down a side Arbor on my home a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Alfredo a General Contractor through the Thumbnail Site in regards to an estimate to replace it. At that time I found out that the Arbor was improperly constructed, and the wood was severely rotten all the way through. Alfredo, and one of his crew members (Evan) provided Outstanding Customer Care to me and to my home. He provided me with a fair and honest estimate with all the labor and material cost included. With no hidden charges later to add on. I watch him and his crew member, take down and replace my Arbor with astonishing accuracy, to the exact measure. I watch Alfredo do math calculation in his head for this project like Einstein would have done. He raised the height of the Arbor to its proper height, attaching it to the fascia board in the proper manner, and not at the lowest elevation that it was originally in, and attached to my home. And wow what a difference it made to the side of my home. It is aestheticly pleasing, not only from the garden view, but from the street as well. Matching the design of my home perfectly! His Customer Care was above reproach, and not as I have dealt with less than honest and caring General Contractors over the years in this 1958 Vintage Home. I am so pleased and impressed with his services that I now plan to have him replace and repair a damaged Pavilion Deck that a so called general contractor that I hired last year to repair my Pavilion deck at that time, who used improper materials, measures, and calculations reparing it, that I fell through its flooring in early spring. I would highly recommend Alfredo and his Company to my neighbors, family, and friends... And I have every intention of doing so, as well as keeping his Business Card, well in hand! Thank You Alfredo, and your crew member. I have nothing negative to say in regards to this General Contractor! Only Praise. I'm adding the damage pictures now and will add the finish Arbor once its painted on Saturday.

Tim came out made sure I had everything ready, showed up the next day on time. Friendly, Did excellent work and even leveled out some high and low spots. Took 2 days what would of taken me six to eight weekends. Only person on Thumbtack to answer my request that had a contractors license. I'm always more comfortable with hiring someone who has taken the time to get their license, plus it means they're bonded too. Five Stars, will use him again.

Joe is a genius when it comes to irrigation. He takes the time needed to properly diagnose the issues and then is reasonable on price fixing them. We have have worked with over a dozen contractors and different trades since buying our new home. I can easily say Joe was one of the best if not the best contractor we have used. He even called the city multiple times and got them out to look at the issue as well! I would recommend to anyone including my family and close friends!

We had Skygreen Construction build a cement walkway in our backyard from our back patio to our new storage shed. They did an excellent job. I asked them to be certain and make it level and smooth as my wife has a difficult time walking. They came thru with flying colors. Both my wife and I are very pleased with the work and professionalism displayed by them. Also the price was very reasonable, and was considerably less than the other contractors we interviewed. Thank you for the good work!

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.
