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++

Domingo and his team did an excellent job at making our backyard look like new again. Backyard had almost two years of neglect with overgrown plants and dead grass and trees. Domingo gave a very reasonable price for the whole job and took only a day to complete. They cleaned up and also had good ideas and suggestions about plants and placement. Definitely hiring him again and calling him back for monthly maintenance. He is also very courteous.

I hired Patricia to do some maintenance and to spruce up my garden and she did a fantastic job. Her ideas were really creative and she completed the job in a timely manner. All throughout the process she kept me informed about her progress and clearly communicated any modifications. I am thrilled with the "dirty beauty" outcome.

Adrian team trimmed over 18 ficus trees, they were able to do it all in one day with not issues, they cleaned up tightly and had no issues cutting around the electric wires. Adrian was friendly and came by to quote the job, he was organized and detailed outlining what will be done and how long it will take. I felt like his price was very fair and he was an honest person. I am looking forward to working with Adrian and his team on regular maintenance for gardening and tree trimming. Plus Adrian trimmed a large palm tree for a bonus and now the entire neighborhood loves how it was cut. Great work!

I wanted a clean, modern xeriscape design to replace an overgrown lawn of crabgrass. I have a mid-century style house and preferred a clean look over mulch. I shared some ideas and she ran with it. The end result is a contemporary design of decomposed granite, succulents and drought tolerant flowering plants. She also installed beautiful stone pathways and a patio area with pavers and pebbles. I enjoyed working with Angela and her team. She was proactive, resourceful and made the whole experience easy for me. When I wanted to make changes while the work was in progress, she worked with me every step of the way. The end result is beautiful and better than I could have imagined. Angela Price can design the garden of your dreams. Professional, organized, knowledgeable, flexible, and creative. Give her your ideas, pictures, sketches, or nothing at all and she will magically transform your space.

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!

Alfonso contacted me and arrived in time for our first meeting. He walked the property with me and listened to my needs. He also shares his suggestions for lawn care and maintenance. He is knowledgable and professional. We agreed upon a weekly service schedule and started that same Thursday. His work is thorough and he left the yards clean, neat and well trimmed. I recommend LCD ( Alfonso) highly.

I have been searching for months for a dependable and professional Gardner. I went through several with no luck. Valentin responded to my project and showed up the same day and did excellent, detailed and professional work. I am hiring him to continue to do my yard. I highly recommend anyone that needs lawn care service to hire Valentin.

Jamie was wonderful to work with and incredibly professional. The convenience of scheduling and handling of payments was great, and the value of the service is terrific. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is the gardeners forgot to service the backyard during their initial visit. It was simple enough to let Jamie know, though, and they came out the next day to handle it. I would highly recommend this company to others.

WOW these two "Master Gardeners" are IMPRESSIVE. I contacted them to inquire about doing herbs and a organic garden. They were PUNCTUAL to our first meeting and made sure to check in and confirm the time. They are EDUCATED, which showed when they walked me through some of the possibilities during our free consultation. I immediately trusted them because they were enthusiastic about my project and I agreed to let them make my vision come to life. What I did not expect was for them to go ABOVE and BEYOND what was asked. They gave me fresh non-gmo plants and herbs including a cute separate pot filled with strawberries. They were RESOURCEFUL by using my extra bricks and stones from previous construction jobs to create a small oasis for me, which by the way was not previously discussed but I was so grateful for their THOUGHTFULNESS and COMMON SENSE. Throughout the whole process they contacted via text to let me know whenever they were on their way and in my garden. Once completed they educated me on some of the plants and how to take care of them. I opted to have them come back for weekly maintenance to ensure my garden stays in tip top shape. They are definitely ECONOMICAL as well. Last year I tried to do my own gardening and ended up wasting money. I cant wait for what is to come. Oh and super EFFICIENT, I love it when a contractor/gardener/hired gets the job done well and fast and that is what they did. I decided to hire them for another project which is to make new brick planters for the front of my house. Words cannot express that i HIGHLY RECOMMEND them. (I wish I could post the before and after photos to do it some justice but thumbtack doesn't have that option yet)

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.
