Eddie was very pleasant and professional to work with. He was on time for both the estimate and the day he trimmed the trees. I initially hired him to do a tree in my backyard, but because of his low quote and professionalism, I had him do another tree in my front. My backyard tree had a power line going through it. Eddie was very careful that the power lines were not touched during the trimming and he knew exactly what to do. After all the work was completed, he made sure that everything was cleaned and raked, leaving no trace of tree debris. I highly recommend him!!

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!

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.

Brian was instrumental in refining our landscape for a community Back Yard Tour. With his input, we were able to add the extra touches of plantings and color needed to spruce up our yard. I have also used Brian's help in providing a vision for my real estate clients. I had one listing where I was dealing with a seller’s home with a very narrow backyard. With the use of Brian's design, we could show potential buyers how they could put the space to the best use. This visual design helped put my client into Escrow and sell his home at an enhanced price. Faye Capps, Broker Associate Hometown Realty

To whom it may concern: Re: Greg Lang / USA Painting and Construction. In 2004 Greg and his company built for us a 550 square foot game room/oversized casita. The site was originally intended for a standard 300 sq. ft. casita so it was somewhat of a special project as the 300 ft. slab was already in place. The removal of this and the re-orientation of the new slab/foundation was the beginning of the project which consisted of the main room, a full bath, a wet-bar, and closet. The construction moved forward from there to completion without incident and within the timeframe stated and Greg’s design matched the exterior and interior of the existing house perfectly. Greg’s team was very professional and timely and we were scarcely inconvenienced during the construction. Greg or his foreman was on-site every day overseeing the project. In fact, my wife and I were in England for 3 weeks during this time and Greg took care of our pool, cleaning and adding the necessary chemicals. After completion Greg made some follow-up visits to address any problems. There are none to this date. Greg is a devout Christian and an honest man and we can recommend him highly for any construction or related projects. Randy and Lorrayne Burns Palm Desert, CA

Jaime did an excellent job replacing the deck. His bid was very reasonable and finished it on time. I bought all the materials and he just did the labor but he buys other stuff needed to keep the project going. He also gave advice on improving the design of the deck. I will definitely hire him again and recommend him to relatives & friends.

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.
