I have gone through many gardeners over the years and Jose is turning out to be one of the best. He does a beautiful job, does any extras I ask him to do, he will let me know if he can't show up - he has never missed a day so far. Very reliable and very easy to work with. I hope I never lose him.

Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.

Greg and his crew did a complete makeover on our yard and everything looks really beautiful and high end. Greg was patient with me and didn't rush me in making decisions after I had changed the layout a few times. Everyone at GM Landscaping was very professional, efficient, detail oriented (not missing even the tiniest of details), and helpful with offering suggestions to tweak the design to achieve our ultimate goal and happiness. I am a very picky customer and I can truly say that I would recommend GM Landscaping to anyone who is looking to get the best results on any of your landscaping and tree trimming projects.

My whole cedar fence was replaced efficiently, fast, and they were very clean. It only took two days. They gave me a good price. My neighbors were also very satisfied with the work since we share the fence and are hiring them to replace the rest of their fences. I also intend to hire them again for other landscaping projects. I highly recommend them.

Raygoza's did an excellent job and were priced right! I am very selective when I use contractors and expect good communication, professionalism and a good job! They fulfilled my expectations! As I told Carlos, their work affects our company reputation so I need the job to be done right! He and his crew did it right!

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 needed a clean up of a badly overgrown garden that included a medium to small lawn with lots of crabgrass some hedges and an apex 250 sq ft slope with shrubs and ivy and some early daisies. It was a mess. I wanted a cleanup and a regular maintenance service set up. I called several gardners. Some through thumbtack. Alex was one, he responded immediately; set up an appointment to see the job. He was very knowledgeable. He listened to what I wanted and asked follow up questions. He gave me a very reasonable bid on the spot. His maintenance service bid was a little on the high side compared to the other gardners I saw. But he was very willing to take on the slope and keep it up so I felt the price was fair. I am so glad I decided to hire Alex he and Adolfo his helper have done a great job on the clean up. I am very very happy and am sure that the regular maintenance will be great too. Do yourself a favor call Alex.

It was such a simple process. I put in my request and several different landscapers responded. I received immediate responses and within two days they were here to give me an estimate!!! I hired the first person that I spoke with because she seemed very professional and willing to do the work for a reasonable price. I'm excited to get control of my back yard again.

I have had multiple landscapers in the past; however, Ramos Gardens quality of work and caring towards his clients is superior then previous gardeners I've had. I will continue to use and refer relatives and acquaintances for his services.

has done much work on my home, including interior paint, exterior paint, cement work, landscaping, installation of artificial turf, planters and sprinklers, tile work and a complete bathroom remodel. All work has met, if not exceeded my expectation. Luis is detail orientated a d takes pride in doing an excellent job. When I have had some ideas about what I would like done, Luis has presented several options for project, and has made sure my wishes are followed for the final product. I would defonetly recommend sup surfaces for any project.

I was looking for repair of my entire backyard and some front yard irrigation system. In addition, I had multiple planters that needed to be replanted with fresh plants. I also needed 2 trees moved to different locations. Finally, I needed to redo the "grout" spaces between concrete pavers in the backyard. Rick was prompt in responding and came to the house quickly for an estimate. He was flexible with his schedule and accommodating. The estimate he provided was transparent, reasonable and within my budget. Work was started very promptly and competed quickly. The end result was very professional and his crew cleaned up nicely after the job. Highly recommended. Overall a very easy, stress-free and pleasant experience.

Form and Focus completed a full landscaping job for us this past spring. Our backyard began with all dirt, and by the end, we had attractive hardscape, redwood fences, artificial turf, a raised cement deck with seat wall, landscape lighting, a gas firepit, drip sprinklers, and complementary planter beds to accent the perimeters. From the design phase through completion, Jacob and his team were very professional, and especially responsive to our design change requests throughout. We would highly recommend Form and Focus for any of your landscaping projects.

The one thing that I really liked is that David is responsive to correcting problems not related to the original installation of the grass. A broken sprinkler eroded the dirt and sand...causing ridges to form under the waterless grass. When I called David...he came over and corrected the problem.

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.
