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++

I have a cactus garden that was very overgrown. Dangerous work! I also wanted some of the cacti transplanted to my backyard. Mr. Torres came on a Sunday,started work and did not stop until the job was done. He is more a landscape designer,then just a gardener. His crew ,by his side he sculped my cactus and transplanted and shaped them into a beautiful garden. It looks beautiful.He wants to please his customers and he reaches that goal. I would highly recommend him.He is now my official cactus expert.!

I can't say enough good things about Jose and the landscape work he did for us! He and his team were professional, courteous and got the job done on time and within our budget. He laid pavers for us in our front and back yard, removed tree stumps, graded the yard and moved sprinklers. He also ran wire for low voltage lights. I highly recommend Jose for any landscape or home improvement job!

Marietta and Matt came out and did an excellent job. They made some suggestions that made our landscape really stand out. They even worked a little late to get the job done. Don't hesitate to call her. She is also very affordable.

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.

Fantastic experience with R&R. Ricardo was very responsive and flexible with dates and times. The day of the trimming, R&R rolled up with his crew (4) which in included the chipper and the actual tree trimmer (Efrain) at 8:00 am sharp. I was impressed how Efrain climbed up into each tree and carefully selected and trimmed each branch to the way we agreed upon. The crew was careful not to disturb the rest of the landscape and vehicles near the job. I highly recommend R&R for their knowledge, work ethics and price.

We hired Omar & his team at Coastline Landscape Development to design & landscape our front & backyard. We really were not sure what we wanted as far as design, but we told Omar that we wanted a low maintenance yard but did not look like desert scape. Omar sent us perfect designs including the types of each plant. He worked within our budget & provided us with ideas that would save us money. He kept us updated of the progress throughout the entire process. He also gave us detailed instructions on how to best maintain our yard & is still available for any of our questions. We are so happy that we found Omar, he made the process so easy & he was a perfectionist when it came to his work! We would highly recommend Omar & his team!

Jason and his crew took out 10 forty foot cypress trees in short time. They cleaned everything up as they went along. They were prompt and very respectful. Nobody else could have done the job better. I would give this company 10 stars if I could. You won't regret hiring this company for any of your landscape needs!

On time for job. Friendly Javier has a great background in landscaping. He went over and above in finding my hidden irrigation leakage, then fixed it. Cleaned area when done. Good price within my budget. We are planning a future "change the landscape" job together. Thanks, from a happy Senior Citizen.

I was very happy with the completed landscape project. Bill Sullivan sent 2 extremely good workers who removed a giant yucca plant, added to an existing wall while finishing it with stucco and a flagstone cap, as well as created a beautiful border between the sidewalk and the front yard with attractive-looking pavers. The price was fair and the quality, as well as the aesthetic of the finished work was excellent. I do think Mr. Sullivan knows his construction business, but he is not as responsive or really good at communication as I would have preferred. All in all though, if you are patient and flexible, the work was done very well.

We asked Form & Focus to design and re-landscape our front, side and back yards to give us a Southwest Zen feel. Their designer, Katie, worked closely with us to give us just what we wanted working within our budget. Her design included a Japanese style Zen garden (at our request) and new flagstone patio while using colorful stone to significantly reduce the area of our yard that needed watering. We did keep some areas of lawn, but used a new type of drought resistant grass called UC Verde buffalo grass (developed specifically for California by the University of California) that can be maintained at a meadow length, and which fits in perfectly with our natural Zen approach. The project took about 2 weeks to install and was carefully supervised by Jacob and Aaron on a daily basis. They worked with us to make adjustments to the various areas of the design as we moved along, so that everything was sized and shaped to our specs. Their people arrived promptly every day and worked through 100+ degree heat to keep us on schedule, cleaning up each night before they left. Here's what they did for us: demolition of existing landscape, installation of artificial turf, installation of flagstone/decomposed granite walkway/patio, installation of Zen garden including a 1,200 pound boulder, conversion to drip sprinkler system, installation of borders and decorative rock, installation of drought resistant grass and plants throughout. They were a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use Form & Focus for future work.

James and Tami helped me with every aspect of my backyard remodel. They helped with design, layout, and the construction. They did a wonderful job installing my turf and provided an electrical plan as well. I ended up using them for all of my lighting and have been thrilled with the outcome. They were on time, available and finished the job in the exact time they specified. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

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.

We'll also need fencing on 3 sides as well as possibly a new automatic gate for the drive way, which might include new hardscape pillars. Might also need a retaining wall depending on how much grading is done.
