Andres and his crew took only 2 days to till, prep, install an entire new irrigation system and lay sod for a yard that is over 1000 sq ft. Others quoted 4 days at a higher cost. We are very pleased with the final results and would highly recommend Andres and his Regs Tree and Lawn Services for any of your future landscaping needs! A++

Siamani rocked! He was wonderful with us and our family. He came out to check our tree and gave us a fair estimate of what it would cost. He was here in 48 hours and took care of the job. Highly recommended. We will be using his service for landscape work when the weather cools off. But I tell you folks- he's the man you want tending to your trees and landscaping needs. Great guy! Thanks!

I presented Marietta and her crew with an absolute disaster of a front and side lawn. They were up to the challenge, and made our landscaping look absolutely immaculate after hours of hard work. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome, and wouldn't hesitate to hire Miss Landscape again for another job, large or small. Thank you!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Working with Carlos really was a great experience. Not only the price he quoted us for “huge” tree removal was fair, he went above and beyond. He was very communicative at every step of the project. Him and his crew were polite, punctual and professional. We added some work to the on going project and Carlos work it out. I was not on site all the time but I felt completely at ease and the end result show a work of quality. We are super happy and will certainly stay in touch with Carlos for future work. We highly recommend Carlos and his team for small or large tree landscape work.

I hired Dave to inspect and repair the sprinklers for my rental property. He made the whole process very easy for me as I am not able to make it out to the site. Dave inspected the system and told me over the phone what was needed to get replaced and repaired. We agreed on a price and the work was completed on the same day. Invoice was then emailed to me and I made the payment via PayPal. My tenant has not complained yet so I assume the sprinklers problem was properly fixed. What I value the most is Dave's responsiveness and professionalism. He was at the property at the time he said he would be. The job was done timely. These are huge factors for me. I will definitely consider this firm again for other landscape related projects.

Norma & her team were great. We hired her to lay some sod in our new backyard, lay some weed barrier/mulch, plant a couple of trees. Norma responded quickly to questions, arrived promptly to the consultation, & provided a very competitive quote. Her team arrived on the scheduled day/time & did a really nice job. The yard looks wonderful, everything was completed exactly as requested with no issues. Overall, a great experience. Would highly recommend J&J Landscaping to others.

Friendly and professional : ) I could tell Renato had a ton of construction experience, so I was happy when he responded to my small furniture assembly project. After carefully laying out all of the pieces, he noticed some damage to one of the panels caused in shipping. We had to postpone the project, but Renato was very accommodating and did not expect any sort of compensation for his time. I look forward to working with Renato and very glad we connected!

Aldo takes care of our annual treetrimming at two high profile buildings in Santa Monica. We have used his company for the past three years and could not be more pleased. He schedules the work when it is convenient, his crews show up on time and clean up after themselves. The first year we used his company, we weren't 100% satisfied, and Aldo returned the following weekend to perform some additional work, at no additional charge. I highly recommend Aldo Aceves and Progressive Landscaping for treetrimming.

I can't say enough great things about the Martinez Landscaping team. Efren, the company's owner, is an absolutely wonderful person to work with. He and his team are incredibly professional and the quality of their work was fabulous. They completed a huge project in only three days, and they did so with precision and care. The value of the work was spot on with what we paid, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to work with Martinez Landscaping. You can be sure we will be referring this great company to others as well as continuing to work with them on future projects. Thank you so much, Martinez Landscaping! You guys are the best!!!

On time for job. Friendly Javier has a great background in landscaping. He went over and above in finding my hidden irrigation leakage, then fixed it. Cleaned area when done. Good price within my budget. We are planning a future "change the landscape" job together. Thanks, from a happy Senior Citizen.

I hired Garcias landscaping to clean up a very small yard. They removed old wood chips and laid the new ones I purchased and planted 6 small plants. The job was done to my satisfaction. Sadly I could not keep them for continuing maintenance. They are very expensive to cut the grass of a very small yard

I had a very large tree in front of my first home I bought and I wanted it gone for our new landscaping plans. A few guys came by and checked it out and gave me a very expensive quote! Daniel removed our tree for a very reasonable price given the size and complexity of the roots. Everyone told me it would take 2weeks and Daniel did it in 1week! He was always respectful and Had great work ethic! I would highly recommend him!

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.

We want to thank you and your landscaping crew for an exceptional job on our very distressed backyard. You should get an award for this project. We are very satisfied with the results. Our tenants and neighbors are amazed at the transformation. The work was done in a timely manner. And, you successfully worked with our budget! You are a highly knowledgeable guy that does not cut corners. We highly recommend Cutting Edge for any project and will use Ryan and his crew again and have already referred them to friends and neighbors. Chuck & Kimi, City of Orange, CA

I was very pleased with Julie's work. My front and back yards' garden needed weeding and she took her time and did an immaculate job. She's very thorough, making sure not to damage the surrounding plants. She worked diligently even through the heat. She even planted a couple of plants for me. She was very pleasant to work with and I'm so glad I found her through Thumbtack. Excellent! Thank you, Julie! My gardens look great!

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.
