I met with Magnificent Services to initially get an estimate for some landscape design ideas as well as to asses and fix a few things. I initially chose them for their excellent reviews. Sara showed up on time and gave me a rundown of all their services they offered which included gardening, landscaping, hauling, irrigation services, and much more. I was impressed. The ideas she gave me for my landscape impressed me as well. She had great ideas which we will work on implementing in the future. I ended up booking them for gardening services because of how well they communicated with me over email and phone, which to me is as important as the service itself.

Valentin was the first to respond and scheduled a prompt appointment to come out and look at our broken sprinkler system. Two previous landscapers said it couldn't be fixed or would require tracking down an expensive part. At our estimate appointment, Valentin said he could fix it on the spot -- and he did, in just a few hours and for a rate that literally saved us thousands of dollars. We were so pleased with the work, price and his punctuality, that we are now hiring him to install some new sod and put footprints around our trees. I would recommend Valentin any day of the week.

We recently purchased a home and the previous owners had deferred maintenance on much of the landscaping. Miguel was very responsive. He and his sons did an outstanding job trimming trees and hedges, shaping bushes, and pulling weeds. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

I am very satisfied with the tree removal service I received from Fernando at Duran Landscaping. He arrived as scheduled and began work immediately. He is a no-nonsense professional that takes both the customer's and his time seriously. He (and his crew) completed the job in 3 hours... I thought it would take a good part of the day. I am definitely using Duran Landscaping for all my future tree and landscaping needs. I highly recommend him... you won't be disappointed.

Cris replaced my back fence, installed a new sprinkler system and sod in the back yard, repaired my front sprinklers and installed a wifi sprinkler controller that allows me to control the system with my phone. He did a great job all the way around. I would certainly call him again for landscaping and irrigation needs. I highly recommend him.

I needed a new gardener in the Tracy area. Since I was already on Thumbtack, I typed in my search and got a response from Paul Machado of Machado Landscaping and Olga's Janitorial Service. Paul came out personally to give me a bid for mowing and weeding. I was very pleased with his professional manner (and he liked my dogs, too!). Paul has been doing my yards for about a month now and I am very pleased with his work and his pricing is very competitive for the area. I would recommend him to others without hesitation. In addition, he and I have discussed how to improve the drainage in my backyard, possible trees to plant and other issues to make my yard the peaceful place I would like it to be. I look forward to working with Machado Landscaping for many years to come.

Ramirez Landscaping was absolutely great! Jose responded within minutes of my request. He visited the next day to provide a quote. After we agreed on pricing, he returned the following day with his crew and completed the tree trimming in one day (despite it being the hottest day of the year). They completed everything I asked and more. Were polite, friendly, on-time, quick, and very clean. I highly recommend them for tree trimming and yard maintenance.

The Perfect Landscaping Company was the right irrigation and landscaping company for my job. Enthusiastic and really care about the finished product, easy to communicate with, willing to listen to your ideas, and honest enough to tell you the truth about how they feel about a material or idea you may bring up. There was a tremendous amount of work to do on my project and the team worked very hard and left my home neat during the process. I worked with Bill on selecting the shrubs and was impressed with his ability to take something complex and pull it together fast and efficiently. A very talented person. We are still going to be working together for some final touches with the irrigation system. I have confidence in this company and hope to be with them for many more years to come. B.E. Smoot

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
