Juan was easy to communicate with, provided a free estimate that was the best amongst the other tree services companies, and was very thorough with our job. We had over 9 trees that needed to be trimmed back since they were hanging over our roof. It looked like a daunting task, but Juan’s crew knocked it out in two days. I would recommend Angeles Tree Service to anyone who needs tree service. I’ve already recommend them to my in laws who also live in the Del Monte Forest.

Brian responded quickly to the initial request and any follow-ups. He and his helper arrived on time - early in fact - and finished the job quickly and thoroughly. Looking forward to planting the new window boxes.

For most of the time these guys did a good job, but they missed on some key parts that I cared about and which I had to remind them of multiple times. It was also not as accommodating as promoted when I wanted help with seasonal planting. But high value otherwise for the price.

Thank you so much for your recommendation. D'Franco Landscape and Irrigation Services was a great referral. Valentin, the owner, was dedicated to making sure that we were happy with his work. We liked his work so much that we asked him to install an drip system in front of the house and to pick out the appropriate the plants for our area and we are very happy with the results. I highly recommend him.

Gustavo was prompt and very thorough. I had him do clean up and hauling away yard debris, planting, fix plumbing and electrical, etc. It was a 2 day job and he and his team did great. I'm hiring him back next week for other related projects and I guess re-hiring someone without reservation is the ultimate compliment.

Miguel was able to remove an overgrown palm tree from our home front planter, which was no small task. In doing so, he was able to preserve the brick lining of the planter and left the area ready for new planting. After he was done, he cleaned the area including the windows to be sure it was clear of all debris. Great work! Before and after photos below. Sorry to get rid of a tree, but it was starting to do damage on the surroundings.

Ruben and his crew did a fantastic job on my side drainage. My house is nice and dry after all the rain this season thanks to his great money saving ideas and engineering. He also helped out with some other landscaping projects I was working on and provided me some supplies to complete them. I will definitely hire him again.

Siai did an exceptionally high quality gate and pergola for the end of my driveway which will soon be a gateway to a patio existing garden. He works alone and is therefore personally involved in the whole project. He is an honest man proud of his work as he should be. Competitive bid. Highly recommended.

Shirin is knowledgable and passionate about designing gardens that meet her clients' interests and needs. We have been wanting to plan our garden for a year, but as novice gardeners were not sure where to begin. Shirin met with us to learn our preferences and discuss possible plant options and layouts. She took time to review the designs she created and answer our many questions. We are very pleased with her work and eager to begin planting our new gardens!

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 your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
