After 4 years of drought our landscaping looked pretty bad. We had Valentin come and give us some ideas about converting to a drip watering system and landscaping with more drought resistant plants. Valentin and his landscaping staff came up with some excellent ideas. We approved, they went to work and the finished product is better than ever dreamed. Valentin worked with us every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and give us good ideas.

David was on time for the two jobs I requested him for. He went above and beyond with the lawn care making sure the weeds were done, the bushes trimmed and he did an excellent job cleaning up a messy side yard that hadn't been cared for in months. We have hired him now on a regular basis due to his great work. Highly recommend.

I am so relieved to have engaged Walter! I was so pleased with his initial work on my garden that I have engaged him on an ongoing basis. I have an intimate garden of about 500 sq feet with lots of plans (vines, Peruvian lilies, Kifer Lilies, Ground Gardenia, Mexican Primrose and more) and a small grass area that had not been tended to for quite a while. Walter and his brother in just a few hours got it looking pristine and healthy. He also took care of my potted plants. I have a friend who knows about these things who confirmed "clearly they know what they are doing based on how they trimmed back the plants." Walter called me right away, we quickly set up a time for him to see and quote the work and easily found a time to do the work. It was everything I would hope for from a professional home service provider. I am looking forward to his services long into the future. Thank you, Walter!

Steve did an outstanding job on our yard! We live in an Eichler with four distinct yards / courtyards each with its own type of plants, shrubs and grass. Every area was given a high level of attention to detail and looks great! We definitely hope to work with Steve again in the future.

I will definitely hire Cesar again. I have hired a half dozen people before to weed my half acre lot and he is the ONLY one who did what I said, selective hand weeding. Cesar listens to what you want and asks appropriate questions. He is a true gardener who knows his plants (and weeds) not just some guy with power tools claiming to be a gardener and tearing things up indiscriminately. Cesar and Julio were great!

Renee and Carlos responded to a quick turn yard job of spreading 3/4" gravel and mulch in our front and back yard. The did a great job - very detailed, and went above and beyond in terms of taking great care in removing weeds/debris/stump - my husband and I were super impressed.

Miguel, Luis and team did an fantastic job at our new place. We wanted to get started with landscaping and maintenance but had to clean up the yard that had a lot of outgrowth, poison ivy, tall grass etc. Their quote was not the lowest but the most knowledgeable as they scoped it correctly. Miguel was in contact through the process and was sure to only eliminate the bad species. We are considering hiring them ongoing maintenance as well

I needed a new gardener in the Tracy area. Since I was already on Thumbtack, I typed in my search and got a response from Paul Machado of Machado Landscaping and Olga's Janitorial Service. Paul came out personally to give me a bid for mowing and weeding. I was very pleased with his professional manner (and he liked my dogs, too!). Paul has been doing my yards for about a month now and I am very pleased with his work and his pricing is very competitive for the area. I would recommend him to others without hesitation. In addition, he and I have discussed how to improve the drainage in my backyard, possible trees to plant and other issues to make my yard the peaceful place I would like it to be. I look forward to working with Machado Landscaping for many years to come.

Bin and his team were professional, nice, and did a good job. We had a tree fall into a fence we shared with a neighbor and we're having a hard time finding someone to take care of it quickly. I decided to try thumbtack to help connect me with someone to help. Bin responded to my query within minutes and came same day to review and give me an estimate. His team was able to fix our fence and remove our tree within a couple days notice. He also was kind enough to fix an unrelated broken gate hinge and remove all the leaves from the tree in our yard as well. The entire crew was professional and polite. I'm am pleased with the service and will call them back again when we need help in our yard in the future.

Ricardo was recommended by a friend & did a great job with my backyard. My backyard looked like a forest. Ricardo cleaned everything out & brought down a 20foot old tree that was dying. We then decided to go with decomposed granite with stone walkway. He added plants along the walkway for extra decoration. Looks amazing. 10/10

Keith did a great job on my garden. He used the right plants and scrubs that made sense for our landscape. Most of the plants are deer and drought resistant. He has a lot of knowledge of native plants. His rates are decent and I would use him again.

The sprinkler and gardening technician from J&G Services, Jesus Chavez, was punctual, friendly, and professional. He gave me an estimate for the job and stuck by it. He did his work in an orderly manner and provided a perfect job. I would definitely call on him again for landscaping and sprinkler system needs.

We hired Dave to do a medium sized job at our home. It was what I would call a "landscape refresh/repair". We had another landscaper do some work a couple of years back and it looked great at first but quickly because a major issue as the lawn was dying and the flagstone he installed started falling apart within a very short period of time. We tried on a number of occasions to get the other landscaper to come back and fix his work but he never did. So, I finally came to Thumbtack, interviewed a number of possible landscapers and landed on Dave. This time, as a way of protecting ourselves from our last experience I asked Dave to sign a contract prior to starting. He was totally willing to do that which gave me some peace of mind. He got started when he said he would and overall the project went very smooth. First I'll list the positives from our experience: • Job was done in a reasonable amount of time and the end result is beautiful! • Dave stayed within the budget we set • He did some little extras for us which were greatly appreciated like building a redwood box to cover our sprinkler valves and added some soil around our front yard fence posts to even out the grade of the lawn. • He was selected very nice looking plants for us, with minimal direction from me, and chose larger size plants to give it a better look to start out and also to give the plants a better chance of surviving. Landscapers we have used in the past plan 4" plants instead of 1 gallon to save money but many of them die within the first couple of weeks. • He will continue to come by and keep tabs on how things are growing and make sure nothing dies right out of the gate. • He came up with innovative solutions to some of our irrigation issues Here are a couple of things that were less than perfect: • There were a couple of miscommunications between Dave and the guy who was doing the work. One of those led to a very frustrating couple of hours for my husband who had to dig out a bunch of new soil and mulch in order to find disconnect speaker and lighting wires and repair them even though the worked knew that those wires were disconnected. Instead, the worker should have waited to cover those areas until the wires were fixed. Dave handled this well though and worked with my husband on getting the issue resolved. All in all, we were very happy with Dave and his team. They were clean, courteous and did quality work. I will update again in a few weeks with how things are growing.

TLDR: If you want a great price, service with a great attitude, someone that isn't going to let their ego control the price, he's the guy to hire! - I would say that Serafin is a very good guy to hire for a Landscaper. The job is obviously not easy. I cannot say that his punctuality is poor when he was late due to the fact traffic was really bad due to an accident on the bridge (was able to truly confirm with a Lyft driver that said he was stuck in traffic for 30 minutes going the same direction at the same time). He was able to weed my hellish backyard that had weeds that were literally 7 feet tall with dog waste. I have had a hard time lately with full time school, contract work that takes 1/3 of my paywork and a now disabled dog that can no longer walk and can hardly control herself from letting herself go potty in the bed. On top of that, my husband works in LA 5 days a week. All this with 3 other pets. Least to say, I had to let my backyard go. Serafin said that he would keep the price down to the base price due to him not being able to show up on time. I asked him if he was sure even after the job was done and he said no it's ok. What a gentleman! I gave him $35 more dollars of what I could afford. Another Landscaper tried to price me$560 and that is crazy. Now we have a clean slate backyard where the seeds won't be a danger to our dogs' health and I can train my disabled dog with her new fitted wheel chair with all that space! I'm telling ya -- Hire this guy. He will take care of you. I will be hiring him again soon once I get more money in line. Thanks again! You're a life saver!

Kimberly is absolutely a joy to work with. We had her come to our new house to help us clean up the yard and identify plants that the previous owners had put in. In record time, she turned our overgrown yard back into the beautiful garden we had bought. She helped teach me the difference between a weed and a plant, dug out the dead stuff, caught a disease in one tree early (so it'll be ok), and most importantly, she's awesome with our dog. It was great to work with someone who understood our goals and was happy to make sure the yard was totally dog safe. Her enthusiasm for what she does is so genuine and comes through in her work. So I'm happy to call Kimberly our gardener and anyone else who works with her is in for a beautiful yard.

Johnny Davis is the person who got me started in gardening and plant care. I have some rare and unique plants and trees that he gave me 30 years ago. I have since been out on my own, but working with him and learning about caring for yard plants made me quite successful. Rehabbing yard plants and trees is quite different from just planting, and this is one of his specialties. Sometimes older plantings have been just sheared and become leggy or too big. Many older plants need to be repaired. It takes an artist who is a knowledgable plant person to transition a neglected yard to a well tended yard without lopping everything off and starting over.

Good service! Juan was very responsive, and was able to come the next day. Juan and his son came and they both cleaned my backyard, took out the weeds and trimmed the plants. It was nicely done. Would use them again.
