I had a 60ft eucalyptus tree removed from my backyard by Angele's Tree Service. His bid was the best, he was prompt, he said it would take 2 days and it did. When he was done my yard was totally cleaned up.

Gustavo and his crew are outstanding in the quality of their work, their work ethic (reliability, promptness) and depth of experience. I had them do an electrical job for me (that had baffled 2 prior teams), a huge garden job including building planters and a compost bin for a new organic edible garden, irrigation, cover for the air conditioner unit, painting the backyard fence, misc odd jobs etc. I plan to hire them again for a large lighting job and other items on my to-do list.They deserve more than 5 stars!

Benitio’s Landscaping was professional and great work quality. They came promptly at 8 am and finished my sod installation and replacing sprinklers by 2:00. My backyard looks beautiful and I am very happy. I will definitely be calling them again for other landscaping jobs.

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

Sam contacted us shortly after posting our request. He sowed up on time for Free estimate. His price is fair compering to other Licenced contractors. They showed up every day. We didn't need to go after them and push them to finish the job. Sam and his crew were always very nice and would listen to our concerns very patiently. They finished on time and we are very happy with their work. They removed the dirt from our backyard. We wanted Stone on the concert area in front of our sliding door and Paver on the rest(Dirt area). We would definitely hire him again. Don't hesitate and start your project with Sam. Will post some pictures later.

We needed a landscaper to install a small lawn in our backyard. Rubin and his team were great - Rubin had great suggestions to improve the look of the backyard, was always on time, very good at providing updates on plans and progress, and the resulting lawn looks great. We would definitely use Limon Landscape again for future landscaping needs.

Big wind in Fairfield took a part of the backyard fence out. I had three people come to the house for quotes and Kris (with Economy Home Repair) came in with the most reasonable bid. He also came across as more knowledgeable and professional than the other two gentleman -- so we went with him and were VERY glad that we did! Top quality material and top quality work. Knocked it out quickly and cleaned up like they were never there at all. I look forward to his working on other projects for us. Thank-you Kris and crew!

We picked Machado Landscaping from a list of landscapers in our area that were on Thumbtack. Paul and his crew put in sprinklers and turf for us. His crew was prompt and efficient. Paul personally followed up on the installation. We were so pleased with the work we received that we are having them cleanup our backyard. It is a small yard but a big job. They have not done this yet but I anticipate it will be of the same professional quality as the previous job.

Bin completely transformed our backyard with some small, but important updates. He and a worker removed the tin roofing from our pergola, sanded and painted an existing wooden bench, and replaced concrete pavers with grass. He also reinforced the pergola structure by replacing and adding a few new posts and refreshed it with a new paint stain. The concrete pavers were repurposed to lay a path on both side entrances of our backyard. Bin was professional and punctual in completing the work in the time estimated and responding promptly to feedback, all at a reasonable cost. We look forward to working with him again.

Ricardo was recommended by a friend & did a great job with my backyard. My backyard looked like a forest. Ricardo cleaned everything out & brought down a 20foot old tree that was dying. We then decided to go with decomposed granite with stone walkway. He added plants along the walkway for extra decoration. Looks amazing. 10/10

I'm glad we chose Perfect Landscaping for our backyard project. Their price was reasonable and work was done with high quality. Bill is very responsive, flexible, easy to work with, knowledgeable and has some great ideas. The team fixed some fence, redid part of the pathway with concrete, installed synthetic grass, built three beautiful raised vegetable boxes, and simple and easy to maintain landscaping. The backyard is now my favorite place to hang out. Thank you Bill!

I wanted to sell my house for the most money possible but my home seriously lacked curb appeal. I called Victor from Superior Improvement and he designed a beautiful front yard for me, incorporating the tree and slope of the yard. It was a beautiful result and increased homebuyer traffic tremendously. I got so many inquiries from neighbors about my yard that I was able to refer 3 neighbors on my block. I sold my home and the new owner loved the yard so much he had Victor's team come back to do the backyard as well. Great value and a stunning result!

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.
