Falanisi and his crew did a great job building a cinderblock wall for us in the backyard. Falanisi was very responsive and answered all questions. I would definitely recommend them for your next hardscaping project!

Eddie was the first of 5 landscaping quotes we received, needless to say; he was by far the best. We gave him a brief description of what we had in mind for our backyard and he exceeded our expectations. Never once did he throw in fancy landscaping terminology to justify his price like others did, he simply said “it can be done” came a week later and knocked the job out in two days. We look forward to working with him and his crew in the future!

We interviewed several landscape designers and loved the vision Patricia had for our space during her initial visit. She had so many great suggestions and ideas which were the perfect complements to our initial concept. She even went out to a rock quarry and picked out an amazing and perfectly shaped stone for the entrance making a great initial impression on our guests. She’s very passionate about what she does and took the time to educate us along the way to make sure we were prepared to take care of our plants for the long haul. Patricia is awesome!

Ive been using Optimal Landscaping for sometime now and truly am grateful for the services Francisco's and his crew have provided me with over the years. From the installation of an artificial lawn in my back yard last year to the renovation of my "water stair" fountain in my Hollywood Hills home, Francisco's landscape design is always carefully planned and executed to perfection.Simply the best crew Ive ever worked with. Francisco's work always goes above and beyond my expectations, while working well within my budget.

George and his team were awesome to work with. They completed our backyard project on time and on budget. Their prices were extremely competitive, and we felt like they delivered a great product. They did everything they said they would and even helped us fix a sprinkler in our front yard! I love waking up every morning and seeing our beautiful backyard! We would definitely recommend them.

Working with David has been a dream! First of all, he is very detail oriented and great at communication. What I love most is that when there is a question or he has an idea or wants to give me an update, he texts me and responds instantly. He was also able to do an additional project for me at at an amazing price and the work is outstanding. he is very knowledgeable about everything in my garden, able to follow complex instruction that my former landscaper gave us when we remodeled our backyard, and he has brought life to my beautiful outdoor living space. I would highly recommend David.

Turfusion transformed my entire backyard into a beautiful zero-scape flowering oasis. They designed and implemented the whole project. They were very professional, Leo and his team performed quality work and they were on time and in budget. I called them for a minor adjustment to the drip system and they took care of it the next day.

Joseph and his team were great from start to finish on my project. We talked and texted multiple times and they really did everything needed to meet my needs. The day of the project, we had to make a few on the fly changes to my design and it was no problem. They really seemed to care about getting it right for me and doing what it took to get there. I would absolutely work with this team again.

I was ready for some remodeling in my home. My kitchen needed an update and so did a few of the bathrooms. Searching google I found GIM and saw that they did energy efficient remodeling and upgrades. I contacted GIM and set an appointment for a consultant to come by to show me some options. The consultant showed us many samples of flooring, tile, roofing, painting, and multiple other products they offered. They even had their own architect to take care of the drawings for me and also had a 3d design for the kitchen. All the work was done properly and my home was left clean everyday. Appreciate all the hard work.

Joseph is an EXCELLENT electrician. I previously hired him for a job removing some malfunctioning electrical appliances in my new home. I was so satisfied by his work and professionalism that I rehired him recently to fix wiring in my bedroom ceiling fans/ lights and upgrade some outlets. He responded very quickly, arrived on time and explained EVERYTHING to me. I really appreciate his attention to detail and how he kept me so informed during the process. He ensured that I was aware of electrical safety, building codes, and really helped me understand all the aspects regarding the work he was doing. As a new homeowner, he has been such a valuable resource of knowledge and has made me feel so comfortable. His prices were more than reasonable and he went the extra mile to ensure that the work was done with the highest quality. I’m so grateful that I hired Spring Build and Design and I look forward to hiring Joseph and his team for future electrical project in my home.

I echo the previous reviewer's notes on Derek. Not only did Derek do a great job, but he really helped me elevate my green thumb knowledge. His pricing was competitive and hisck tractor Jose was incredibly timely in executing the garden implementation and finishing the project. As a side, Derek himself was a pleasure to work with. Very cheery and pleasant. I highly recommend Derek.

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.
