Jose was incredibly professional. Articulate, polite, organized, punctual, patient, and did a high quality job. I asked him to fix a number of things in my condo to prep it for renting. This included patching and painting walls, power washing the patio, cleaning up landscaping and putting in some edging features, and a few other misc tasks. His pricing was fair and well worth the resulting work. I will definitely be calling Jose for many jobs in the future.

Jose helped us with a new irrigation project for our large yard. He was on time and polite and offered suggestions on how to complete the yard project. He also built a small retaining wall. He was very easy to communicate with over text messages and was always responsive to our requests. I will also be hiring him for our ongoing yard maintenance. I would highly recommend him for your next landscaping project.

We recently bought an older fixer upper and Jose has helped us with several jobs. He removed popcorn ceiling, texturized, put in new drywall and pot lights, did painting, installed floor tile, and is now tiling my new shower. He has a lot of overall construction experience and brings important knowledge to the job. His work has been quality and looks really nice. His pricing is very competitive and he is responsive and easy to work with. We had a few last minute delays on our end getting materials and he kindly rescheduled several times. We are going to work with him on some outside hardscape and fencing as well. We highly recommend Jose and his team. (I will add some photos soon)

I requested several bids from different contractors to trim my trees in the Poway area. I have 8 full grown trees, plus 7 eucayptus trees along one side of my house, and 5 palm trees on my property (two of which are easily over 40 ft. tall). I hired Bernie because he is licensed and bonded, is knowledeable and experienced, and he offered me the most reasonable bid, overall, to do the work. Bernie brought in his crew and they worked for over 6 hours on a hot 93 degree Saturday to trim and clean-up all of my trees. Not only was their work outstanding, they did a great job of cleaning up my property before they finished. I would definitely recommend Bernie and his crew for tree trimming and other landscaping work!!

I needed someone out to my house A.S.A.P and they were able to come out the next day and give me a quote on all of the work. We needed some major stuff done to our property and after the fantastic price we set up a date for them to come out. They arrived and played no games in getting started. The crew was courteous and very respectful. The work was seriously amazing and our house is now ready to sell not to mention stands out. I will definitely keep them in mind for future projects as well as referring them to anyone who needs landscaping help. As if their work and price was not enough, I needing other junk hauled away and again they beat out the price that others had given me and did a great job. Seriously without hesitation I would hire them again!

Omar's work is always outstanding. He had previously renovated our front yard and now he just finished renovating our backyard. The work they do is just simply amazing. They not only do landscaping but also hardscape. They did a fence, BBQ pit and pavers job for is and now we love speding most of our time in our backyard. I strongly recommend Omar's crew and Coastline Landscape Development.

Paul did a great job installing turf and gravel landscaping at our vacation home. We hired him sight unseen, as we live out of state, and were not disappointed when we arrived at the job site. He was courteous, dedicated, and left everything spotless. We would definitely recommend him. The Z's from Arizona

I can't say enough about how my yard turned out. Ramon replied very quickly and after considering two other landscapers I came back to Green World Synthetics for new plants, appx. 750 sq. feet of pavers, a small surrounding flower bed wall and a new gate. It came out better than I could've imagined and it's transformed a once dead lawn into a whole new outdoor living space. It far exceeded my expectations and it was great to work with Ramon and his team who were hard working, honest, on time and a team I had complete trust in. We'll have them back again for the front yard but I can recommend them in full confidence as individual who has little to no experience with landscaping. 100% worth it and thousands less than other quotes I got.

I was very happy with the completed landscape project. Bill Sullivan sent 2 extremely good workers who removed a giant yucca plant, added to an existing wall while finishing it with stucco and a flagstone cap, as well as created a beautiful border between the sidewalk and the front yard with attractive-looking pavers. The price was fair and the quality, as well as the aesthetic of the finished work was excellent. I do think Mr. Sullivan knows his construction business, but he is not as responsive or really good at communication as I would have preferred. All in all though, if you are patient and flexible, the work was done very well.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
