We had a complete landscape overhaul project which we submitted on Thumbtack and received a prompt, courteous response from AA Cardenas. We had high-level plans for what we envisioned but also wanted to gain input from a professional opinion. During our initial meetings with Arisel Ortega (owner), he provided ideas and examples from other comparable projects that solidified he was the right person for the job. The estimates provided were comprehensive and reasonable. Arisel and his crew are extremely hard-working, and set realistic timescales for various stages of the project through completion. The attention to detail and overall quality of workmanship is high. We could not be more pleased with the end result. I highly recommend Arisel (AA Cardenas) for any landscaping need.

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.

David Ramirez worked extremely hard to fix my unattended front and backyard. He is experienced, stays on his commitments and knows what he is doing. He is hard working, reasonable and clear in communication. I would definitely recommend David for his landscaping services.

I was very glad that I found Milko Young. I am a landlord from Texas and I came to Berkeley to help with my daughter's move-in to a small house. I appreciated someone like Milko who is professional, honest, and easy to work with. He was great and is a true painter and handyman. His work included painting, fixing cracks in the ceiling/walls, installing various household items (ceiling fans, light fixtures), and staining the patio deck. He is also very thorough, he made sure fixtures like the smoke alarms were in working condition. I'm very picky about people who work for me and Milko went beyond my expectations. We are definitely planning to continue to have Milko do more work for us (landscaping & general handyman) in the weeks to follow. Thanks Milko!

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.

Ruben and his crew did a fantastic job on my side drainage. My house is nice and dry after all the rain this season thanks to his great money saving ideas and engineering. He also helped out with some other landscaping projects I was working on and provided me some supplies to complete them. I will definitely hire him again.

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.

Cris and Jose we're able to install a drip system in our backyard and replace our leaking frontyard sprinklers on the same day I contacted them. Quality work at a good value. I would hire them again for landscaping or irrigation jobs.

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.

Justin and David help to clean and shape my front and back yards. They also adjusted the sprinkler system so that it waters the right areas. They showed up on time and did a great job, which is beyond my expectation. They are also willing to communicate with me about the gardening works. I would highly recommend them to take care of your yards.

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.

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.
