We just had a great experience with Benito-starting with the fact that he showed up when he said he would! He also gave us a very good advise while we was thinking just to replace with grass for our front yard. It turned out very nice with some rock in between the grass and walkway. That has been hard to find with my recent experiences with service professionals. Benito was very knowledgeable and friendly and knew exactly what to do to fix my few problems. He was done in just about one day and charged a very reasonable for material and labor. Benitos landscape and maintenance is the one to call if you want to get the job done and done it quick and perfectly! Benito also quick response and able to fit me in a such hurry schedule. We were very appreciated all your team's hard work. We Look forward to work with you again in the future.

I employed Milko to powerwash and stain my redwood deck. I found that he had all the characteristics that I look for in a contractor - punctuality, responsiveness, and professionalism. He was really concerned about making us happy, as opposed to just finishing the work and getting on with his next job. He was the first one that brought samples of finishes (not just showed us pictures). We were very pleased with his work and will use him again when we have something he can help us with

Robert and Hunter did an amazing job. I have just under a half acher of property. They did a spring clean up, more like overhaul, on my yard. They mowed very tall grass, blew leaves, trimmed bushes, and they were able to clean my gutters out. The property looks gorgeous now. The price was great for the quality and quantity of work provided and they got it done fast. Originally I was looking for a one time clean up, but due to their quality of work, I will be continuing service with them. Highly recommended.

Sam contacted us shortly after posting our request. He sowed up on time for Free estimate. His price is fair compering to other Licenced contractors. They showed up every day. We didn't need to go after them and push them to finish the job. Sam and his crew were always very nice and would listen to our concerns very patiently. They finished on time and we are very happy with their work. They removed the dirt from our backyard. We wanted Stone on the concert area in front of our sliding door and Paver on the rest(Dirt area). We would definitely hire him again. Don't hesitate and start your project with Sam. Will post some pictures later.

We had a general idea of what we wanted for our front yard but got overwhelmed/didn't have the time to deal with all the details and vision for the end product. We set out looking for a landscaper that would have the creativity/skill to create something we couldn't visualize. After meeting with a few people, Rubin completely won us over. He was able to map out a general plan and design by the end of our 1st meeting and started breaking ground faster than I could send emails to other contractors that "we were going with someone else." Rubin and his team made efficient, amazing decisions about each step in the process. He accommodated our schedule and would work around our times to sit down and have a meeting about every phase of the project. He was always honest, thoughtful, excited, realistic, and fair. Rubin would find samples of stone, rocks, and plants, place them in a way he thought WE would like and come back with new ideas if we questioned it even a smidge. It was assuring working with someone that had the gamate of experience and love for work. His background in horticulture really helped us make good decisions/compromises between plants I wanted vs ones we needed in different areas of the yard. In the end, he was able to incorporate everything our our list and more! Our front yard looks amazing and we have been getting compliments from the neighbors and random cars stopping in front of our house to look/take pictures. I totally get it....I did the same thing for MONTHS. But I have to tell you, its not worth it. Call Rubin and he will make something better for YOU!! THANKS RUBIN!!!!

Jerry did a great job repairing a broken sprinkler pipe in my lawn. He contacted me soon after I posted on Thumbtack, came by and quoted the job, then showed up when he said he would to do the work. The area where the work was done was left clean and the system once again works great. I highly recommend All Season for any type of lawn care or landscaping work.

We picked Machado Landscaping from a list of landscapers in our area that were on Thumbtack. Paul and his crew put in sprinklers and turf for us. His crew was prompt and efficient. Paul personally followed up on the installation. We were so pleased with the work we received that we are having them cleanup our backyard. It is a small yard but a big job. They have not done this yet but I anticipate it will be of the same professional quality as the previous job.

Jeff Scott and his crew of well mannered and respectful workers transformed my front and side yards into what can only be described as "the envy of the neighborhood". Our California Drought Landscape transformation job started on time and ended on time - as promised. The project took the better part of 5 days from beginning to end. Each day beginning with Jeff arriving on site well before 7:30 AM with his workers arriving shortly after. Although I had a general idea of what kind of work I wanted performed I relied on many of Jeff's suggestions and recommendations for a major portion of the project. Thankfully he could see the end results in his mind before the work even started and I found his recommendations and tweaks to my design thoughts to be carefully thought out and presented in a very professional business manner. I plan on having some construction work performed in the near future. My first call will be to JS Construction and Landscape.

Dmitriy with Elite Riverside Landscaping was a breath of fresh air; I wish we had started all of our landscaping projects with him first! He was professional, efficient, transparent and pleasant to work with. He finished landscaping both our back and front yards in under a week. He kept us informed every step of the way, made sure we were included in design decisions and made very helpful suggestions that accomplished aesthetic and budget goals. I would and will be recommending Dmitriy to my friends, family and clients who have any landscaping needs.

Fernando did an excellent job on our yard for an unbeatable price! He was extremely professional the entire time and created the outdoor space we were hoping for. A lot of landscaping companies we had contacted were very expensive and tried to up-sell us on features we didn't want and that fell outside our budget. Fernando created exactly what we asked and stayed within our budget. I would certainly recommend him to anyone wanting a beautiful yard for an even better price.

Rusbelt Landscape,specifically Ismael Cortez was very prompt and professional in responding to and acting on my needs. I had 4 large trees that needed either trimmed or removal. Ismael displayed confidence and assurance in getting the job done. I am very happy with the work so far; have to see how my trees respond to the trims..

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.
