It was such a pleasure having Martin and his team working at our home. They were always prompt, respectful, professional, and worked so hard to ensure our total satisfaction with the job. Reasonable rates, great communication, and cleaned up the work area beautifully every day. I give them the highest recommendation for any landscaping project needs.

Alfredo gave me a timely and detailed estimate. We do not live in Palm Springs and he was very responsive to questions and easy to communicate with. He showed up on time and completed the job in a timely manner providing photos before and after.

Victor and his crew were very professional, respectful, and responsible. My back yard was ugly with a lot of trees, bushes and no grass. I told him to take care of it and use his experience to remodel my back yard the way he thought would be best, and I got to tell you it turned out stunning!!! I absolutely love my backyard. He installed a new irrigation system, he placed sod, cleaned a whole lot, and trimmed and removed some of my trees. I highly recommend SoCal landscaping and tree service not only for their professionalism but also for their reasonable pricing.

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.

Oh My Goodness! Martin got back to me immediately, his quote was more than reasonable (and I got 4 other of the most insanely high bids) he came back right away to complete the job, he is extremely easy to communicate with by texting or calling back right away, he did not have a problem with my dogs and paid close attention to make sure gates closed so they dont get out. He even skimmed grass out of pool when they were done! His partner is his father. I love this! They also do other types of projects that I will make sure I let you know about. They were courteous, respectful and I see a good long relationship here. I highly recomend this company. Penny Gage

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.
