Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.

Valentin was the first to respond and scheduled a prompt appointment to come out and look at our broken sprinkler system. Two previous landscapers said it couldn't be fixed or would require tracking down an expensive part. At our estimate appointment, Valentin said he could fix it on the spot -- and he did, in just a few hours and for a rate that literally saved us thousands of dollars. We were so pleased with the work, price and his punctuality, that we are now hiring him to install some new sod and put footprints around our trees. I would recommend Valentin any day of the week.

David has been very reliable and conscientious in caring for my home lawn and landscaping. He is personable and considerate. He did a big clean up job for me recently that was done very well and he was very good about cleaning up after his work. David is a great option for home lawn care.

Wow! Came home to find my project completed with more quality than I expected! Carlos and his father Carlos and their assistant installed the irrigation for my new vineyard with high quality subterranean adjustable drip systems that I’ve never seen before so it’s great to turn down during too much rain and turn up when there are droughts. Carlos and Carlos installed new sprayers for my 1000 bulbs and planted rosemary and Spanish lavender. They trimmed the palm trees and fertilized the palms so beautifully just like palms you see in Los Angeles! Wow and then I asked them if they could fix my Christmas lights and said they don’t have much experience but they would figure it out by tomrw!!! Honestly I’ve had nightmare landscapers in the past and have had nothing but wonderful interactions and performance out of these guys. My warmest wishes to these hard working men. Merry Christmas 🎁🎄!!!

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!

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.

Pricing is very reasonable for the quality work they do. We'll definitely be having them back for all of our gardening/landscaping needs.

Fernando is a nice guy. I had a sprinkler valve that was leaking and water isn't cheap. He came to look at what the problem was and fixed it right there. All I could ask for. I recommend him to anyone.

RMR Landscaping, and Ricardo in particular, were great to work with. He was very responsive to us, beginning with our very first contact, and even came out in the rain to view our job and deliver an estimate for our new lawn. His crew worked very hard and all delivered a quality job in the time period they estimated, and at the quoted price. We highly recommend RMR Landscaping to anyone who is looking for a new lawn!

Adam was very communicative throughout the entire process. He was punctual and competed everything we discussed. He did a clean out of our yard and we are also hiring him monthly for maintenance. His website has a lot of great pictures of what he can do and in talking with him, it is clear that landscaping as a passion. I highly recommend Adam for any yard job.

Ricardo and his team were busy with another job, but fit us in so our job could be completed on our timeline. The job was completed with some additions along the way as we both saw fit to both of our satisfactions. We now have a fabulous deer proof garden space with 2 gates! I recommend RR Landscaping and look forward to working with them in the future.

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.

My Wife and I asked Kalman provided us with a landscaping design for the front of our house. He was very professional and quick with his design. His design provided us with options that we hadn't considered. Since my wife and I aren't very knowledgeable about Landscaping it really helped us get started on our project. My wife and I are DIYers, so we took the project on ourselves based on Kalman's design. Couldn't have started the project with out his guidance. I will definitely seek out Kalman for future projects that we may take on.

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.
