what a wonderful experience. Not many business owners go out of their way to make sure the customer knows they are valued. Steve responded to our job and within a couple hours was in our backyard looking at the project which was taking out a thick load full of previously placed cement. With our busy schedules he was able to meet face to face with us the night before the project started and had great ideas for out back yard. We decided on moving forward with the project and by the next morning Steve and his team were tackling that removal. Checking in with me and my husband constantly was a plus. When the backyard was cleared out he made sure to show me what was done and what the next steps for our project world be. Moving foward I will hire Steve again. He's local, a veteran and such a hard worker. Thank you and your team for taking this project on.

I have a cactus garden that was very overgrown. Dangerous work! I also wanted some of the cacti transplanted to my backyard. Mr. Torres came on a Sunday,started work and did not stop until the job was done. He is more a landscape designer,then just a gardener. His crew ,by his side he sculped my cactus and transplanted and shaped them into a beautiful garden. It looks beautiful.He wants to please his customers and he reaches that goal. I would highly recommend him.He is now my official cactus expert.!

Jose provides an excellent customer service. Unlike other contractors who hardly ever return my calls, Jose is very prompt in responding to texts and messages and is flexible with his time to come to the house for an estimate. When we finalized on the quote, his crew came out the next day and finished the patio and the retainer wall within a day and a half. The outcome is awesome, I no longer cringe with disgust when I look at my backyard. Thank you Jose!

We've relied on recent gardeners to keep our yard together and in time, the overall appearance deteriorated. We need someone with remedies who can bring our yard back. We are confident with the knowledge portrayed today that Ben is the one to help.

Alfonso provided a very reasonable estimate to trim 5 palm trees right here on Thumbtack, just based off of pictures I had uploaded. That made this whole process so much more stress free. He arrived with his crew on time and did a very professional job leaving the trees looking clean and hauling away all the debris. His crew was supposed to clean debris that had fallen over the fence onto my neighbors backyard but forgot to do it. The neighbor was furious to see debris on his new outdoor furniture. Having said that, I applaud Alfonso’s professionalism in apologizing and returning the very next morning to clean the neighbor’s area of all the debris and dust from the trimmings. I will definitely hire him again and recommend to anyone thats looking for value for money and professional outcomes.

Complete sprinkler installation of front & backyard. Work was completed in 2 days in a very clean & professional manner! I was impressed with Ms. Santiago's hardworking crew and the fact that they all worked well with one another to finish the project. The project was huge to undertake due to the fact that the front yard is massive & I wanted to save some existing plants & shrubs. They worked around the areas that I wanted to salvage & I was very happy. New sprinkler system is amazing & all areas of the yard are now receiving water. Pressure is excellent & pleased with the quality materials she used for the job! All Rain-bird sprinklers! Norma also salvaged my old Rain-bird timer which she informed still had some years of use. Timer is complicated & expensive to replace. Very pleased that I was able to save some money in keeping my old timer! Bets of all Norma programmed the timer according to the city's water schedule!

I am not one who ordinarily takes the time to write a review concerning some work that I had done. In this case I am making an exception due to the experience that I had. I had some major backyard fence damage due to strong winds that also affected the adjoining neighbors on north and south side. Mark gave me a detailed invoice as to cost and labor and helped coordinate with my neighbors to split cost and he provided all of us with individual invoices that broke down all costs and labor. Mark is extremely knowledgable, very diligent and he constantly communicated with me to let me know about any concerns or issues that arose during the job. He has an engaging personality and a great sense of humor. His finished work was incredible. Better than I could have ever envisioned. His work ethic is outstanding. He started the work when he said he would and finished the work when he said he would, which has been an issue with other handyman contractors that I have hired in the past. I will hire Mark for every future job that I have and I highly recommend him to anyone that uses this site for referrals. I am happy to have been able to write this review and I know that anyone who reads this and hires Mark, will feel compelled to write their own glowing review. Thanks again Mark.

George and his crew did an excellent job. I had a deadline to have my property cleaned up for a photo shoot for a real estate listing, George made my backyard look picture perfect. He trimmed all the palm trees, fruit trees and various foliage, weeded, and hauled off the trimmings and he did it all for a fair price. He cleaned up the front yard as well so everything look pristine. I am very pleased with Xpert Landscaping's work and will use them again.

We got quotes from a few landscapers and were impressed by DG Construction. We had a vision for our backyard and they did an excellent job in making it happen. They were here at the times they indicated and they finished the job well within the time frame. We are more than pleased with our new backyard and so are our visitors. Would definitely recommend. David of DG Construction is more than willing to do what it takes to please his customer and is willing to listen to suggestions and ideas.

Fernando Ramos has been our gardener for many years. We had a small yard with many palm trees. Fernando made our small garden look great and took the best care of our palm trees . We now have a large yard and he has done an amazing job of transforming the backyard and side yard to a beautiful drought resistant garden. He's has also updated our lighting and irrigation systems. He does it all! We highly recommend Ramos Gardens!

My husband and I found Avid Landscaping on Instagram. We loved every single picture posted. So when we decided to fix up our front yard, we knew immediately we wanted to hire Avid Landscaping for that ‘Desert Landscape’ look. Arody was professional, approachable and listened to everything we wanted. He gave us ideas and options and by the end of the day, gave us a sketch and price as promised. Everything was done on time, in the time frame provided. He sent pictures of the different stages and kept in contact if needed. He gives properties unique gorgeous million dollar landscapes with reasonable competitive prices. It is great to have someone with his knowledge of the area as well as his landscape architectural background provide wonderful work. We loved it so much that by the end of landscaping our front yard, we have already hired Arody and his team for our backyard. Can’t wait to see them work their magic once again!

I had irrigation installed for my backyard but the contractor who put the pipes in was unable to get the new valve connected correctly to my existing irrigation controller unit. Luckily, I found Desert Outdoor Solutions on Thumbtack. Juan came over and spent time trying out every method to diagnose the issue. Once he discovered the problem, he came back and installed new wiring and a new valve and now everything works. He even crawled under the unit to ensure the wiring was hooked up the right way. Very impressed with Juan, with his knowledge, and with his work. Big thumbs up!

Rodriguez Landscaping was exactly what I was looking for. Angel’s work was excellent, neat, clean-up after job. His concrete curbing for my backyard and sprinkler changes were excellent. I would highly recommend him, and rehire for any future jobs.

Victor and his crew were very professional, respectful, and responsible. My back yard was ugly with a lot of trees, bushes and no grass. I told him to take care of it and use his experience to remodel my back yard the way he thought would be best, and I got to tell you it turned out stunning!!! I absolutely love my backyard. He installed a new irrigation system, he placed sod, cleaned a whole lot, and trimmed and removed some of my trees. I highly recommend SoCal landscaping and tree service not only for their professionalism but also for their reasonable pricing.

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.
