Complete sprinkler installation of front & backyard. Work was completed in 2 days in a very clean & professional manner! I was impressed with Ms. Santiago's hardworking crew and the fact that they all worked well with one another to finish the project. The project was huge to undertake due to the fact that the front yard is massive & I wanted to save some existing plants & shrubs. They worked around the areas that I wanted to salvage & I was very happy. New sprinkler system is amazing & all areas of the yard are now receiving water. Pressure is excellent & pleased with the quality materials she used for the job! All Rain-bird sprinklers! Norma also salvaged my old Rain-bird timer which she informed still had some years of use. Timer is complicated & expensive to replace. Very pleased that I was able to save some money in keeping my old timer! Bets of all Norma programmed the timer according to the city's water schedule!

George and his crew did an excellent job. I had a deadline to have my property cleaned up for a photo shoot for a real estate listing, George made my backyard look picture perfect. He trimmed all the palm trees, fruit trees and various foliage, weeded, and hauled off the trimmings and he did it all for a fair price. He cleaned up the front yard as well so everything look pristine. I am very pleased with Xpert Landscaping's work and will use them again.

We got quotes from a few landscapers and were impressed by DG Construction. We had a vision for our backyard and they did an excellent job in making it happen. They were here at the times they indicated and they finished the job well within the time frame. We are more than pleased with our new backyard and so are our visitors. Would definitely recommend. David of DG Construction is more than willing to do what it takes to please his customer and is willing to listen to suggestions and ideas.

Martin and Cody did a fabulous job. He gave us great design ideas and we chose what worked for us. He did a dry riverbed ending in a pond with a dip system for the many plants and tree. We also did a walkway from my from door to the curb, widened the driveway and a small patio in the backyard. My neighbors are getting whiplash driving by its so beautiful.

If you’re looking for a professional, honest, handyman who takes the time to do the job right the first time, Robert, from Candid Handyman Services is your guy. I recently hired him to put up some privacy screens in my backyard. He communicated exactly how he was going to do the job and his price was very fair. He takes pride in his work, he arrived on time and cleans up after the job is done. I will definitely hire Robert Lewis again

Victor and his crew were very professional, respectful, and responsible. My back yard was ugly with a lot of trees, bushes and no grass. I told him to take care of it and use his experience to remodel my back yard the way he thought would be best, and I got to tell you it turned out stunning!!! I absolutely love my backyard. He installed a new irrigation system, he placed sod, cleaned a whole lot, and trimmed and removed some of my trees. I highly recommend SoCal landscaping and tree service not only for their professionalism but also for their reasonable pricing.

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.
