We had a complete landscape overhaul project which we submitted on Thumbtack and received a prompt, courteous response from AA Cardenas. We had high-level plans for what we envisioned but also wanted to gain input from a professional opinion. During our initial meetings with Arisel Ortega (owner), he provided ideas and examples from other comparable projects that solidified he was the right person for the job. The estimates provided were comprehensive and reasonable. Arisel and his crew are extremely hard-working, and set realistic timescales for various stages of the project through completion. The attention to detail and overall quality of workmanship is high. We could not be more pleased with the end result. I highly recommend Arisel (AA Cardenas) for any landscaping need.

I met with Magnificent Services to initially get an estimate for some landscape design ideas as well as to asses and fix a few things. I initially chose them for their excellent reviews. Sara showed up on time and gave me a rundown of all their services they offered which included gardening, landscaping, hauling, irrigation services, and much more. I was impressed. The ideas she gave me for my landscape impressed me as well. She had great ideas which we will work on implementing in the future. I ended up booking them for gardening services because of how well they communicated with me over email and phone, which to me is as important as the service itself.

D' Franco landscape designed our whole irrigation system for our garden. The team was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about irrigation. Great communication in regards to the planning and then reviewing the final project. Very happy we chose D'Franco landscape for our irrigation, excellent at what they do! Great value as well.

I posted my job & within minutes David replied. We set up a consult Friday, he was here on time and not only quoted me but talked me through various options. I have a townhouse with a very small patio area that I wanted to enjoy. There were dead dried out weeds everywhere. I never opened my patio blinds it was so scary. In less than an hour David & his dad cleaned out the old weeds and transformed my yard to look twice as big. He was very affordable and just a real sweet spirit. His card is definitely saved on my phone so if I hear anyone looking for a landscape extraordinaire I'm referring him and his dad. I am so grateful. Oh, my kids came home Sunday and immediately start playing leap frong on the pavers. The only disappointment is that thumbtack doesn't have a photo before and after feature. #imstillcrying

So far so good. Walter was on time and professional. He was ready to work when he arrived. I needed a regular maintenance quote for the back yard and also a quote for the landscape job on the front yard. There were clear and fair prices and I look forward to working with him in the future.

I hired Gustavo for 1000-sq feet landscape project. I had him install paver stones, mulch, and clean out the remaining sections of the yard. Gustavo responded to my emails promptly and was able to come out right away to give me a very competitively priced estimate. Gustavo and his crew was very reliable and began work almost immediately. The work took about 2-weeks but his crew made sure to clean up after themselves at the end of each work day. Overall, I am very impressed with his professionalism and work product. Most of all, I am grateful for the little details that I see that he put into the work where some others would have simply skipped. His work is textbook perfect. Thank you Gustavo and I will most definitely hire you again very soon!

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

Ricardo did an amazing job on our front yard. We hired him for installing a timer for our sprinklers and cleaning up the yard to make it look neat and clean. He not only did a great job on the yard but was also punctual and responsive for any questions we had. Would highly recommend him for landscape related services.

We recently purchased a home and the previous owners had deferred maintenance on much of the landscaping. Miguel was very responsive. He and his sons did an outstanding job trimming trees and hedges, shaping bushes, and pulling weeds. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

We hired Bin and his brother to repair our wood fence that had been damaged when a tree fell. They came to give me an estimate in person and listened well to my concerns. After talking it through, they came up with a great solution to patch the fence instead of a costly replacement. They were even able to source weathered wood that made the repair invisible to notice. If you have a tricky landscape project and want tailored service, call Bin at Quick Lawn Care.

We hired Sam from life time remodeling with his crew to do a complete kitchen remodel. In the meeting Sam recommended a kitchen design that we like a lot. And it turned out to be fantastic just like I wanted. Between my job and this job he made the entire process very easy and seamless for us. I decided to have the remodel done while I was part time traveling overseas. A friend of mine told me we were crazy to have the job going when we were not there to check on it, but because they have a app that I can see all the time updates from process of the job i decided that it is fine and I went. the app they use is very easy to use it fits a construction company in Silicon Valley, that is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with this company :). Turners out, it worked out great Sam's crew did the job and moving along he sent me pictures from the job site to make sure I'm fully informed in all the details I returned to an almost-finished kitchen. The quality of the work and attention to detail was excellent. The team was conscientious about confirming the details with us before each portion of the job, making sure that each decision was agreed with me and were clearly careful in their work. Sam's crew was friendly and pleasant to have in my home with the kids. I decided the last minute to paint the entire interior house during the project, and asked Sam if he could book movers as i was overseas. Rather than hire movers Sam's crew packed up our entire house themselves, moved it to the garage, then moved it back just in time for my return!!! I thought for sure something would get broken but everything made it back upstairs in perfect condition. They even set out my son's toys for him to find when we got home which was much appreciated by a jet lagged preschooler. It was a small thing but showed the care and respect the crew has for their clients. I'm very pleased with the resolute on the paint and kitchen. I would not hesitate to use Sam or anyone from his company life time remodeling again or to recommend them to anyone :).

Bill and his team helped me put in landscaping which met Santa Clara County's Landscape Rebate Program requirements. They did an excellent job! Nothing was too much trouble, even when I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to buy more plants (including a maple tree) and to add some flagstone. Would highly recommend Perfect Landscaping!

I am very glad that I chose Water Pivot for my backyard landscape and hardscape. First off, he introduced me to Ali Atar, who did a 3D design for my backyard so I could see everything before it was done. Ali did a fantastic job and was very accommodating to my changes and request. Then, Milad and his crew did an amazing job on my backyard installing pavers according to the design. They were here everyday early morning and work very hard the entire day. They also changed all my irrigation systems and made my backyard garden beautiful by adding flowers and plants. They did such a great job that I asked them to also fix my driveways that had so many crakes.They installed pavers and turned my driveway like a brand new house. Now, that all my backyard and driveway looks brand new, I had to do something with my porch. Milad suggested that I install tiles and he brought one of his best contractor, Farzin Golpod to install the tiles. Farzin, is very detail oriented and takes his time to do his job not just good but great. Maild is very honest guy and it was a pleasure working with him. I would recommend Water Pivot to all my friends and neighbors who need a good landscape/hardscape company.

Manuel came out and turned out I needed a leak detection company but... He was so nice and told me this once he saw the problem and didn't even charge me for coming out the very next day and looking around and realizing I needed a leak specialist said he would fix the problem once we found it . He is really professional and dosent rip u off!!!! Being that I'm a woman with a big property in Atherton Ca.... I get a lot of that... But he was so great and didn't just asume We had a huge budget and was VERY straight forward and that alone is very hard to find theses days he's a good guy and I would DEFINATLY recommend him!!!!! Thanks for being soooo honest and not trying to take advantage just because u saw a big property in Atherton . So hard to find these days !!!! Hire him all day long!

It was great working with Edward. The work he and his crew did exceeded expectations. The deck and turf installation were done very well. There were a couple delays, from suppliers, but Edward kept us informed and put in extra hours to get the job done. He offered great value and was easy to work with. We will definitely call Edward for future projects.

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.
