They did a fantastic job. Both my front and backyard had to be MAJORILY weeded and the trees/ bushes needed to be cut. John was on time, easy to contact when I called to confirm, and gave me a fair deal. I would HIGHLY recommend him and his team.

I live on an acre of property and badly needed maintenance. The monsoons had caused the weeds to grow up to 4' tall in places. Andy, the owner of C.E.A Lanscaping came over and gave me an estimate and I hired them. I couldn't be more happy with the job they did. The landscapers doing the job were very nice and hard working. I am very very happy with the final job and would recommend C.E.A. Landscaping to anyone for landscaping services. Thank you!!

I am a 60-something single female homeowner and have been able to pull up and repair sections of my irrigation system that springs leaks over time. I needed a small section replaced and buried before I went out of town. It wasn't a huge job but I was short on time and money. Thumbtack threw out 3 names of landscapers. One person never came out and one person came out and gave me a quote that was ridiculously high. Rick came out and gave me a quote that was ONE--THIRD of the other guy's quote and exactly what I could afford. AND he called his crew right then and there to come over and they repaired it within an hour! They were all courteous and got the job down promptly. I so very very much appreciate Rick's integrity and honesty and would absolutely recommend him and his crew to everyone.

Jesus responded quickly, showed up for an initial estimate in a timely manner, and came on the first scheduled appointment when he said he would. Considering the difficulties we've had with other landscapers, this has been a most welcome change! He is very professional and works quickly and efficiently.

On the first day when discussing what I wanted done, Jose understood completely what I explained and he related that information to his workers, They understood and performed admirably. The time frame that Jose identified to me was very accurate. The entire crew was informative and friendly. I have been impressed by few things and people in my life and this is the most impressive action that I have had the pleasure to view personally. Jose and his crew completed the job in such a fashion that I would Recommend He and his Company, AAA Family Tree Landscaping, highly to anyone that asked.

Larry helped remove two trees in the backyard. They were over 30 ft tall and in a tough spot between the wall and the hot tub. Larry did a great job, cleaned up properly, and was on time.

Oscar Silva did what he said he would do with excellent quality and responsiveness. He had very competitive prices, but never tried to cut quality. The work was excellent, and he kept me in the loop the entire time with pictures and texts when I was unable to be on site. I contracted him to take out the asphalt in my drive area and replaced it with concrete. I also asked him to build a carport wall, and put in a new patio with overhang in the backyard. All was completed exceeding my expectations. I will definitely use Oscar as my contractor in the future. He certainly knows what he's doing and how to get it done.

Martin and his amazing crew did an excellent job on landscaping our backyard with turf, rock, pavers and plants. They also added drains which keeps our backyard from flooding. They were consistently on time, extremely patient and answered every question with politeness. I would highly recommend this company.

We chose Jesus due to his timeliness, professionalism and ability to fit what we wanted into our budget. We had a backyard in our new house of just dirt and weeds. It was so boring. Jesus transformed our backyard with turf, pavers, and rockscape. Super low maintenance but simply beautiful. We enjoy sitting outside all the time while the dogs lay in the sun. We can't wait to start planning some more yard project with Jesus.

I was so satisfied with the work done by Eco Sprinkler & landscape services that I programmed their phone number into my phone to keep them as my landscaper. I have had nothing but problems with hiring people for work that will show up and do what they say, with Robert there were no surprises and he and his crew did an excellent job. If he found something that needed attention he would show me and explain things to me so that I was well informed to make the right decision on what to do. I also find great comfort in knowing that he gives a 2 year warranty on his work and parts used. I will not only hire him again I will refer him to any of my friends or family that needs any type of landscaping work done. Excellent job, job WELL done!!

Had some sprinklers not working in my grass as well as my oleander's. Monsoon came out assessed the situation and recommended removing about half of the sprinklers in my grass area with more effecient heads and also replacing the line to my bushes. They wrote up a bid and were really pretty much right on with the price they quoted and the amount of time to complete the job. Will have them back to add some additional zones in the future as well as a new more modern timer. Thanks for your hard work and honest pricing!

We had pavers and grass installed in the back yard. From the initial estimate we felt that A.W. Turf was the right fit for our backyard transformation. The installers did an outstanding job on the entire project, Pavers & Grass.

I have a very natural desert landscaped backyard, which was more than a little overgrown. The three gentlemen that arrived were very pleasant and easy to work with. I explained exactly what I wanted done, and they delivered! I was completely blown away by how amazing of a job they did! I sent them pictures of the property, they came out the next morning, did an excellent job, and I was very pleased with the quote they gave me, considering I had called about 7 different companies for quotes. 10/10 would hire again!

As the owner of Perfection Landscaping, Ray personally bid and oversaw every detail of our sizable project. The scale of our job took a crew of 4-6 men 7 days to complete. Now done, Ray has held two quality reviews to assure that the job is “Perfection” in our eyes too. Prior to contracting this company, we received no less than 5 other bids, two from unlicensed crews. Without haggling, Perfection had the best price, comprehensive plan and provided a contract within 1 day of request. As an indicator of Perfection’s quality, both our adjoining neighbors have subsequently contracted with Ray as well. Due to the value of his team’s work, I feel like we were fortunate enough to contract Perfection at the foundation of what is poised to become a premier landscaping company here in the Southwest. 1,800SqFt Custom Pavers 1,000SqFt Sod 200ft retaining wall Irrigation Sollos Lighting Plants Boulders rocks

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.
