Andreas and his crew were professional, did a great job trimming 2 trees thoroughly, grinding two stumps, using the sawdust as compost for our garden and cleaned up everything after they were done so the front and back were clean. They were careful to protect my hot tub from any falling limbs, too. Thanks Andreas!

I hired Miss Landscape to mow my front and back lawns, and for some pretty hefty clean up in some garden areas in both lawns. They also laid down some mulch. It took 2 full days, and I felt terrible because it was a very hot weekend, but they did a pretty good job. Marietta and Matt were on time both days and did the job in 2 days that would have taken me 2 full weekends.

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Working with Carlos really was a great experience. Not only the price he quoted us for “huge” tree removal was fair, he went above and beyond. He was very communicative at every step of the project. Him and his crew were polite, punctual and professional. We added some work to the on going project and Carlos work it out. I was not on site all the time but I felt completely at ease and the end result show a work of quality. We are super happy and will certainly stay in touch with Carlos for future work. We highly recommend Carlos and his team for small or large tree landscape work.

Renato and his crew, Gudiel Construction, did a fantastic job of replacing our weedy turf with beautiful rocks. The top 3 things I especially liked about working with Gudiel Construction are that Renato is organized, responsive and accessible, he and his crew did great work at a fair price, and he really made sure the job went exactly as planned in a very timely manner. These guys are great!

Ive been using Optimal Landscaping for sometime now and truly am grateful for the services Francisco's and his crew have provided me with over the years. From the installation of an artificial lawn in my back yard last year to the renovation of my "water stair" fountain in my Hollywood Hills home, Francisco's landscape design is always carefully planned and executed to perfection.Simply the best crew Ive ever worked with. Francisco's work always goes above and beyond my expectations, while working well within my budget.

I would highly recommend David Conde!! He is nothing less than AMAZING!!! My husband & I bought our home and completely renovated, from top to bottom. We also replaced the landscaping around our entire property. We had hired other gardeners to maintain the grounds. Needless to say, they destroyed our landscaping. I found David & asked if he could take a look at our property & meet with our new landscaper, as we had to replace what the last gardener had killed. David was more than willing to talk to our landscaper & offer his advice too. We are so happy with David. If we are not home when David arrives, he calls us in the evening to explain what should be taken care of. He is a perfectionist & I'm grateful we found him. Our yard is finally starting to look beautiful again. He is very reasonable in price & very punctual too.

I was a little skeptical since there were no reviews but once I met with Parrish, we were put at ease. He is very professional and was thorough in explaining every step. Their employees and owners have had many years of experience in landscaping so though their company is new, the people aren’t. Turfusion was fantastic from the initial consultation with Parrish to the work being completed by Leo and his crew. It literally took 5 days from the initial visit to get the work done and only 2 days to do the entire project. They even added a stone pathway to our front door for free and it wasn’t even in our initial plan. We couldn’t be happier with the work and will be hiring them again to landscape the front of our house. I will add photos later.

I was very pleased with Julie's work. My front and back yards' garden needed weeding and she took her time and did an immaculate job. She's very thorough, making sure not to damage the surrounding plants. She worked diligently even through the heat. She even planted a couple of plants for me. She was very pleasant to work with and I'm so glad I found her through Thumbtack. Excellent! Thank you, Julie! My gardens look great!

We needed to freshen up our front yard before we listed it for sale. Ryan, from Cutting Edge, came out for the estimate, and we immediately felt comfortable and confident in his ability to deliver as promised. Ryan fixed our sprinklers, removed our old lawn and planted sod, as well as freshening up the flower beds. We definitely recommend Ryan, and will use his services again!

Over the past 10 years Eduardo Hernandez has done many landscaping projects for me, including sod and sprinkler installation, artificial turf, replacing asphalt driveway with a cement drive, cobblestone walkway, flagstone in patio, and tree trimming and removal. With these major projects out of the way, he regularly maintains the front lawn and is always willing to make time if other work becomes necessary. Eduardo is knowledgeable, personable and hardworking and I have been very pleased with all of his work.

Jamie was wonderful to work with and incredibly professional. The convenience of scheduling and handling of payments was great, and the value of the service is terrific. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is the gardeners forgot to service the backyard during their initial visit. It was simple enough to let Jamie know, though, and they came out the next day to handle it. I would highly recommend this company to others.

WOW these two "Master Gardeners" are IMPRESSIVE. I contacted them to inquire about doing herbs and a organic garden. They were PUNCTUAL to our first meeting and made sure to check in and confirm the time. They are EDUCATED, which showed when they walked me through some of the possibilities during our free consultation. I immediately trusted them because they were enthusiastic about my project and I agreed to let them make my vision come to life. What I did not expect was for them to go ABOVE and BEYOND what was asked. They gave me fresh non-gmo plants and herbs including a cute separate pot filled with strawberries. They were RESOURCEFUL by using my extra bricks and stones from previous construction jobs to create a small oasis for me, which by the way was not previously discussed but I was so grateful for their THOUGHTFULNESS and COMMON SENSE. Throughout the whole process they contacted via text to let me know whenever they were on their way and in my garden. Once completed they educated me on some of the plants and how to take care of them. I opted to have them come back for weekly maintenance to ensure my garden stays in tip top shape. They are definitely ECONOMICAL as well. Last year I tried to do my own gardening and ended up wasting money. I cant wait for what is to come. Oh and super EFFICIENT, I love it when a contractor/gardener/hired gets the job done well and fast and that is what they did. I decided to hire them for another project which is to make new brick planters for the front of my house. Words cannot express that i HIGHLY RECOMMEND them. (I wish I could post the before and after photos to do it some justice but thumbtack doesn't have that option yet)

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.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
