After 4 years of drought our landscaping looked pretty bad. We had Valentin come and give us some ideas about converting to a drip watering system and landscaping with more drought resistant plants. Valentin and his landscaping staff came up with some excellent ideas. We approved, they went to work and the finished product is better than ever dreamed. Valentin worked with us every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and give us good ideas.

Matthew was thoughtful, informative and very communicative in the lead-up to my selecting him for some stair repair work. He and his team delivered on time and within budget, consistently providing unsolicited updates as he went. I could not be happier with the work or the interaction through project. I highly recommend Matthew for anyone seeking help with their residential reconstruction projects!

Had my estimate with WBG yesterday and they provided my first service today. My yard looks beautiful! They got rid of all weeds, mowed and trimmed the sides of the lawn, trimmed very large and overgrown shrubs and cleaned up all branches, leaves, and grass clippings. I look forward to continuing with them twice per month.

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 highly recommend Castro Landscape. I'm very pleased with the difficult hedging project they completed and appreciate their meticulous work. Miguel is professional and easy to work with and is able to schedule our yard work on a project by project basis that is convenient for us financially. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality work they do. We'll definitely be having them back for all of our gardening/landscaping needs.

Jerry did a great job repairing a broken sprinkler pipe in my lawn. He contacted me soon after I posted on Thumbtack, came by and quoted the job, then showed up when he said he would to do the work. The area where the work was done was left clean and the system once again works great. I highly recommend All Season for any type of lawn care or landscaping work.

I had a sprinkler emergency and Rob connected with me very quickly. Our back yard was literally flooding and draining our well. Rob came out the same day even though I am sure he had better things to do on his weekend and found the problem, which was not apparent, and fixed it the same day. We will be using Rob's services for other projects I am sure. Highly recommend.

The first thing that stood out about Stephen Rochlin is his landscaping knowledge. I had asked him to come to my parents' property for a consultation. (The property had been neglected by a landscaping company that seemed to care for the first few months but turned into another "mow, blow, and go" -- their service had gotten worse and worse.) While walking around the property with Stephen, I was immediately impressed by how much he knows about the various plants and trees, plus how they should be cared for. He evaluated the situation and gave us options as to how often and how many hours his crew could come to get the two acre property looking beautiful again. Stephen is good at prioritizing the tasks needed to care for and improve the property. He responds to requests and communicates clearly. He and his crew show up on time, work hard, and clean up after themselves. Stephen gives valuable suggestions as to what should to be done during each season. Because this property is owned by an elderly couple, it was very important to have a trustworthy person who would be patient in dealing with my parents and not take their money and do the minimum. Stephen is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Stephen Rochlin and PlanTerra Landscapes!

Angel cared for all areas of our home including both sides, front and backyard lawn areas, pruned ALL trees and plants, weeded everything, and even hauled away all the leftover trimmings. He not only made it super easy to schedule the work, but to also meet for initial consult. I look forward to continuing to work with Angel for our lawn maintenance needs.

Richard transformed my rough garden design ideas into a space that I truly enjoy. His attention to detail in construction and landscaping is impressive. Richard cleared the overgrown chaos, built a large planter box, 2 trellises and installed a feature paver and gravel patio. The fence was repaired and reimagined, trees and bushes pruned properly and a gravel pathway installed in the side yard. Richard took particular pride in his work, was punctual, professional, reliable and pleasant and always left the workspace tidy and ready for the next day's work. I highly recommend Richard and Pacific Garden Artistry for garden design and construction.

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.
