Adrian is A GEM! Seriously, I could not be happier with his work. 1) He was easy to communicate with and very responsive. He texted frequently, was always honest and reliable on when he would come to me, and he was extremely personable and knowledgeable about his craft. 2) His work is BEAUTIFUL. One of the trees he trimmed went from horribly over-grown to looking like a Japanese Bonsai tree. He literally didn't cut corners anywhere on our property (which EVERY other gardener has). 3) He is very reasonably priced! He also didn't over or underestimate how much the work would cost and how long it would take. Many other guys have quoted me lower prices, but stopped before the job was done because they underestimated the scale of our job when quoting their price. Adrian accomplished every.single.thing that he said he would accomplish.. I honestly think the work he did warrants a higher price than I paid him. I think if I had gone elsewhere I would have paid the same price to get my tree trimmed in such high quality, let alone doing the entire yard (front and back) for his quoted price. We've hired him to be our maintenance gardener, and also to do an installation of a few yard in a few months. I would definitely hire him for anything you need done on your property. I'm really glad I found him and I look forward to working with him more in the future.

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 found Thomas Camarena very knowledgeable about landscaping and designing gardens. He recognized all the plants in our yard and knew how to take care of them. He's also a good listener and willing to work with the client. I look forward to having more work done by him and his company soon!

We just bought a new home and had a completely dirt backyard that we wanted to get landscaped. We hired David right away after meeting with him because he was easy to work with and gave us a great bid that worked with our budget. He also gave us a military discount. We got a mix of concrete and grass in our backyard, which was perfect for our kids so they could play in the backyard and ride their bikes and scooters. We also got an alumawood patio installed that went from end to end of the back of our house. He also gave us a great deal when it came to hooking up our outdoor lighting. We also got a garden wall and sprinklers installed. We are under a pretty strict HOA community because we live in a new housing development and David is well aware of most HOA restrictions. Took him awhile to get us the plans we needed to submit to HOA but we eventually got them and they were approved. Also, a section of our grass in our backyard began to die because the sprinklers were not hitting the area properly and David was willing to replace the sod and add an additional sprinkler. We had a great experience with him and we are definitely going to come back to him when we are ready to hardscape our front yard. Great contractor that is always willing to work with you to make sure you get what you want!

We are thrilled to have found Francisco! Reluctantly and with much trepidation, my extremely picky husband agreed to hire a garden service. - "No one will manicure my lawn the way I like it!" After a couple of negative experiences, we heard about Francisco Ramos. Francisco with his work quality, professionalism, garden knowledge and expertise, and work ethic are all the things my husband and I were looking for in a garden service. We have the greatest of confidence in all the work he does for us always going above and beyond from tree and shrub trimming, slope clearance, rose pruning, and most importantly, manicuring our lawn! We couldn't be more pleased and highly recommend Francisco Ramos Garden Service!

Jason has been extremely easy to work with. We had a lot of overgrown things in our new backyard and he was not only quick but affordable. We also have 2 dogs which is sometimes hard to work with. He was very flexible and even helped us with building some garden boxes so we can get our garden going!

We asked Form & Focus to design and re-landscape our front, side and back yards to give us a Southwest Zen feel. Their designer, Katie, worked closely with us to give us just what we wanted working within our budget. Her design included a Japanese style Zen garden (at our request) and new flagstone patio while using colorful stone to significantly reduce the area of our yard that needed watering. We did keep some areas of lawn, but used a new type of drought resistant grass called UC Verde buffalo grass (developed specifically for California by the University of California) that can be maintained at a meadow length, and which fits in perfectly with our natural Zen approach. The project took about 2 weeks to install and was carefully supervised by Jacob and Aaron on a daily basis. They worked with us to make adjustments to the various areas of the design as we moved along, so that everything was sized and shaped to our specs. Their people arrived promptly every day and worked through 100+ degree heat to keep us on schedule, cleaning up each night before they left. Here's what they did for us: demolition of existing landscape, installation of artificial turf, installation of flagstone/decomposed granite walkway/patio, installation of Zen garden including a 1,200 pound boulder, conversion to drip sprinkler system, installation of borders and decorative rock, installation of drought resistant grass and plants throughout. They were a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use Form & Focus for future work.

Claudia has been tending to my tiny garden for over a year now. She selected the pIants and design after a brief consult with me and the finished product was exactly what I had pictured! (Thanks Claudia for reading my mind.) Now, she updates it with color each season. It's great for me! I'm enjoying the fruits of her labor...Claudia comes *highly recommended*

We reached out to 4 contractors for our project. Jose was the only one that came out, measured and put together a bid. Two called me back with just a basic price per square foot and another asked for measurements and photos and never called back. I have every confidence in Jose. His bid was so detailed that, unless I change something, there is no wiggle room. His meticulous attention to this process equals a good outcome in my hardscape. He is very knowledgeable about saving water and drainage, sure but he also has very good taste. He did some design that is way better than my ideas!

Made a appointment with Delgado to come by and give us an estimate to plant a 8' Japanese Maple tree. I needed it done within a couple of days because I was having grass put in on Monday. He gave us a excellent price and said he could start in the morning. At 8:00 A.M. in the morning my door bell rings and it's Delgado, he's all ready done digging a 4' x 4' x 4' hole and has planted the tree. Needless to say I was completely blown away. I was so happy with his work I hired him to plant all the plants and bushes. Delgado does excellent work for a fair price. He gets 5 STARS from me.

I call Chris the "Picasso of Plants". His innovative landscape designs have already won my home 2 awards. He's designed 3 homes on our street and all are completely different. He also offers gardener maintenance. His prices are very competitive. Truth be told, you get so much more than you pay for! HIGHLY recommend.

I echo the previous reviewer's notes on Derek. Not only did Derek do a great job, but he really helped me elevate my green thumb knowledge. His pricing was competitive and hisck tractor Jose was incredibly timely in executing the garden implementation and finishing the project. As a side, Derek himself was a pleasure to work with. Very cheery and pleasant. I highly recommend Derek.

    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.
