Andres was professional and timely. I have worked with many contractors and in my opinion Andres went over and above to make sure that the job was done to my satisfaction. This job was at my office and I have asked him to provide a quote for some work that I need done at my house. I would definitely recommend Andres.

As fairly new homeowners, during the first big rain of the season we found ourselves with a leak in our daughter's bedroom and lots of worries. I quickly requested some quotes from local contractors and was immediately contacted by Stephen. He was quick to schedule a day to come and evaluate repairs and get back out to get repairs done. Our drywall had to be replaced and we also found ourselves with another leak in the kitchen. His follow up was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Stephen, Jerry and their drywall contact. The repairs were completed in a timely manner and very professionally. Thank you again Box Construction!!!

Greg and his crew attacked the job of clearing cacti from my yard and stumping a tree. They were cautious, diligent and energetic. His crew worked effectively as a team and completed the job, including thorough clean up, within the estimated time. GM Tree Service and Landscaping provides excellent service.

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.

Luis from Brandon's tree service arrived at my house the very same day I posted this job. He showed up on time and provided a fair quote and gave me a copy of his insurance without even asking. After i selected this contractor, he gave me a start date and time and showed up exactly as planned. His employee was very skilled and professional. I have a 30-40 ft Ficus that needed to be trimmed and shaped and he did just an outstanding job. I've had this done before by another contractor who stripped almost every leaf off the tree and had me very worried it wouldn't survive. But Brandon's tree service left it looking neatly trimmed, thinned, shaped and enough leaves so it doesn't look bald.

Keli's response time is so quick - which was very refreshing after chasing around a couple contractors just to get a bid on our project. Thank you for all your help and hard work Keli - and thank you for making our project run so well.

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!!!

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

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.
