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++

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.

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!

I just hired Blancarte's Landscape Company and their two visits have been very positive. I look forward to working with them and I realize it will take time to have the yards revitalized with care. Eddie Heriberto is very kind and responsive to my needs and I appreciate his efforts!

When he came to do an estimate, David offered very specific thoughts about what was wrong with our current landscaping and why certain plants were not growing. He also gave suggestions about what he could do differently. He showed up when he said he'd show up, he works hard, and he knows what he's doing. I highly recommend his services.

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!

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!!!

We have contracted with A Greener Tomorrow to do our Xeriscape Project. They are local which was important to us. Carmen has been very easy to work with, creating a design that incorporated the ideas of my wife and myself. She is professional and took time with us to work out the project.There was no pressure or pretentious attitude (which we experienced with other "landscape architects" we encountered. We just got underway with demo yesterday. So far so good!

I was a little skeptical since there were no reviews but once I met with Parrish, we were put at ease. He is very professional and was thorough in explaining every step. Their employees and owners have had many years of experience in landscaping so though their company is new, the people aren’t. Turfusion was fantastic from the initial consultation with Parrish to the work being completed by Leo and his crew. It literally took 5 days from the initial visit to get the work done and only 2 days to do the entire project. They even added a stone pathway to our front door for free and it wasn’t even in our initial plan. We couldn’t be happier with the work and will be hiring them again to landscape the front of our house. I will add photos later.

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 ready for some remodeling in my home. My kitchen needed an update and so did a few of the bathrooms. Searching google I found GIM and saw that they did energy efficient remodeling and upgrades. I contacted GIM and set an appointment for a consultant to come by to show me some options. The consultant showed us many samples of flooring, tile, roofing, painting, and multiple other products they offered. They even had their own architect to take care of the drawings for me and also had a 3d design for the kitchen. All the work was done properly and my home was left clean everyday. Appreciate all the hard work.

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.
