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.
We hired Metthew to build a 40' long 3' high retaining wall and then move a LOT of soil, in order to level a back garden area. He was knowledgeable, reasonable, and exactly on time for all planning meetings and work meetings. Most notable was his very clear communication, ability to suggest solutions, and quality of crew and work product. Matthew is highly recommended and we will CERTAINLY work with him again!
Benito and his guys did an awesome job with the project we had done in my backyard. We are so pleased with the outcome. We hired Benito for a very large project involving junk removal, fence replacement, landscape design, flowerbeds, concrete removal and pouring, sprinkler repair, and sod laying. We have a completely transformed backyard now. In the beginning, he asked me what did I have in mind and got an idea of what I wanted. From that, we created a layout that would work for me. During the installation, he made it a point to make sure I was happy with everything before we proceeded to the next phase. We even made a road trip to the rock yard, so I could pick out the type & color of rocks that I wanted in the planter beds. I picked out and bought my own plants and flowers. He helped me decide what type of plants and trees would look good. I ended up getting some Japanese Maples, Bougainvilleas, Banana palms, and some grasses. They gladly planted them where I decided I liked them. He also helped me give my concrete a design element that I really love. He put in a "salted" boarder that gave a nice touch. We put a round concrete slab in the yard, that I want to place some chairs and a portable fire pit on. We are almost ready for our first family get-together. I wanted to post pictures, just note that I haven't quite finished staining the fence, but I will post anyways. Benito gave me a fair price and made sure to stay within my budget. I am very happy with the finished project and can't wait to have him come back and replace our other side fence and redesign the front yard also!
To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.
Miguel was excellent. Cleaned up very fast, very friendly and offers landscaping suggestions for my small garden. I highly recommend hiring him!
I couldn't be more pleased. Pablo submitted a very reasonable quote, started work promptly and worked steadily until the job was completed. I am completely thrilled with the work he did. I cannot recommend this friendly, competent, hardworking professional more highly. I'll definitely ask him again to help with my lawn and garden projects. Really excellent.
AB Landscape was the only gardener to respond to my request. I sent out the request on a Saturday afternoon, Issac responded by Saturday night and I had the yard work done on Tuesday afternoon. We were very pleased. AB landscape is fairly priced, has great customer service, very communicative, friendly and they do great work. We have hired him to do our yard on a bi-weekly basis.
Sean Thomas of Thomas Lanscaping was OUTSTANDING! He and his crew were punctual, hard workers, extrememly knowledgable in irrigation, drainage, and all aspects of landscaping. He found ways to save us money, and listened to what we wanted. He doesn't cut corners - does everything right the first time so we won't have problems later. Very customer service, polite, and the results were fabulous. Our backyard turned from a pile of weeds and drainage nightmare to a beautiful english garden. We are thrilled with the work Thomas Landscape did, and plan on using them again in the future for the front yard. Oh, Sean also worked with us to keep the job within the budget, but give us everything and more than we ever imagined. Best decision we made was to go with Thomas landscapes for this project!
Shirin has been my garden designer extraordinaire for at least 25 years. I only have praise for her designs for my ever-changing garden. Her knowledge of plants and related materials is impressive as are her gardening skills.
Richard transformed my rough garden design ideas into a space that I truly enjoy. His attention to detail in construction and landscaping is impressive. Richard cleared the overgrown chaos, built a large planter box, 2 trellises and installed a feature paver and gravel patio. The fence was repaired and reimagined, trees and bushes pruned properly and a gravel pathway installed in the side yard. Richard took particular pride in his work, was punctual, professional, reliable and pleasant and always left the workspace tidy and ready for the next day's work. I highly recommend Richard and Pacific Garden Artistry for garden design and construction.
Perhaps the most knowledgeable professional I have had the pleasure of meeting through Thumbtack, Edward deserves his 5 star review and then some. I am in the process of transforming my backyard garden, and as such, the scope of my project went from planting some new flowers, to “hey honey, we should install a brick patio out here so we can enjoy the garden more” I considered going the DIY approach, heading down to Lowe’s, grabbing some supplies, and just ‘layin down some bricks.’ I am very happy I called Edward instead. He took the time to listen to my goals, educate me on the various steps needed to achieve these goals, and explain the pros and cons of hiring the right people for a job of this size. Going above and beyond the call of duty, he showed me several samples of potential building supplies (way better than anything at the local hardware/landscape supply store) and created a real time, line by line cost AND time proposal for the project, not just a price tag. We look forward to working with Edward and his team at System Pavers!
Chris was very helpful and professional. We had two different options we were considering. Chris developed a plan for each. There was an additional charge for the second plan. He started by working with my wife and I to understand the general concept of what we wanted. He then went through many pictures of plants to identify those which we preferred. Once he had an idea of what we were looking for, he sat down and developed the two designs. We went over each plan and he again showed us the pictures of the plants he had specified in the design. There were a few minor changes, but we were very satisfied with both options. Chris is very knowledgeable about the Lawn to Garden reimbursement programs and he guided us through the necessary steps to apply for our refunds. He also recommended a few landscapers. We used the plans to request bids from each of the landscapers and chose one to build our garden. We are extremely satisfied with the final product and much of the credit goes to Chris.
Ethan is fantastic to work with, professional, responsive, kind, friendly, communicative and responsible. He has transformed our front and back yard into a California style english garden with a mix of CA natives, succulents and more. Everyday I come home and smile watching the bees and birds flit around the yard (before and after). I agree with a previous reviewer, Ethan is a landscape artist. I highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to hire him for future landscaping projects.
We moved into our home in Hayward where the gardens had been neglected for some time. We had some ideas of how we wanted it to look and called a few companies for help. After a few quotes from other landscapers, we met Rodney and immediately He helped us articulate what we wanted and then set about, using ours and his ideas, designing a beautiful, functional back garden and stunning, drought tolerant front garden that we still get so many compliments on. Rodney and her crew were a joy to work with. Always on time, responsive, they clean up after themselves every day and even brought treats for our dog! We couldn't be happier, we spend more time in our garden now than in our house! Rodney and his crew are simply the best.
Max & team revived our backyard area. They turned our embarrassingly shabby storage area to a beautiful new outdoor lounge space with deck, flower garden and fire pit in a matter of 3 days! I was stunned with the speed and and am so pleased with the quality.
April is very easy to connect wth, April has a wealth of knowledge and is a terrific listener. April wants you to be happy with your garden through her designs. April has very creative ideas using a variety of materials, and in our case implementated over a period of time. I would and have highly recommended her to others. Eileen
Working with Deborah Cowder for garden design and regular maintenance is a delight! She is extremely knowledgable, has an excellent artistic sense, is an excellent listener and very responsive. Her customer service is beyond compare. We are so happy with every aspect of our garden, including sprinkler and drip system, and a vegetable garden too. I cannot recommend Deborah and her team highly enough.
He is very creative and built a garden glass house that we both designed. He did not have to use one nail. He is a master carpenter. It is better to pay a flat fee than by the hour.
I will design and maintain your garden in Marin, Tiburon, Corte Madera etc. I have 20 years experience, instructor at UCLA and junior college, M.A. in landscape design. I will help you build your best experience. Please visit my website for samples of my work.

New To Thumbtack
I've been designing gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 20 years, so I have a very good feel for designs from modern to traditional, from xeriscape to Japanese and cottage gardens. Having written two books on garden design and having served as senior editor of the past three editions of the Sunset Western Garden Book, I feel that my knowledge of plants is extensive - although there are too many great plants out there for anyone to say they know them all!
