Falanisi and his crew did a great job building a cinderblock wall for us in the backyard. Falanisi was very responsive and answered all questions. I would definitely recommend them for your next hardscaping project!

We hired Jose Silva to cut down some trees remove a lot of old bushes and lay new sod in the backyard where just dead crabgrass was growing (or dying). We were not only happy with his service, we were ecstatic over the work done. He was on time and finished a day early. He went above and beyond what we hired him for which was completely unexpected and we could not be happier with the result. The price was perfect, the workers were just great and we have now hired him as our gardener a couple of times a month. He will be doing the front of our house in the next moth or so and we can't wait to see the outcome. Hire Silva Landscaping. You will not be disappointed!!!!

Thomas reached out to me very quickly, surveyed my property and gave a quote all within 2 or 3 days. Work began the following week. He was always communicating well and punctual. We are happy with the work he did and the quote was fair after receding a few from other landscapers. Thanks!

Turfusion transformed my entire backyard into a beautiful zero-scape flowering oasis. They designed and implemented the whole project. They were very professional, Leo and his team performed quality work and they were on time and in budget. I called them for a minor adjustment to the drip system and they took care of it the next day.

Our front yard came out beautifully. We have the nicest curb appeal in our neighborhood and, we don't even need a gardener! About one year after the front yard was complete, we have started the backyard. Stamped concrete patio with an aluminum cover, artificial turf with a 3-hole putting green and drought tolerant plants with a drip system. We highly recommend this company.

I echo the previous reviewer's notes on Derek. Not only did Derek do a great job, but he really helped me elevate my green thumb knowledge. His pricing was competitive and hisck tractor Jose was incredibly timely in executing the garden implementation and finishing the project. As a side, Derek himself was a pleasure to work with. Very cheery and pleasant. I highly recommend Derek.

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.
