Juan was easy to communicate with, provided a free estimate that was the best amongst the other tree services companies, and was very thorough with our job. We had over 9 trees that needed to be trimmed back since they were hanging over our roof. It looked like a daunting task, but Juan’s crew knocked it out in two days. I would recommend Angeles Tree Service to anyone who needs tree service. I’ve already recommend them to my in laws who also live in the Del Monte Forest.

Jon did a great job. He was able to schedule me quickly, showed up on time, and was extremely straight forward, friendly, and professional. I'll definitely have him back next time I need tree or gutter services.

Valentin was great! He checked our current system and made sensible recommendations for cost and good coverage for the type of plants we had. He did the work when promised and in a professional manner. Unlike most people who check out as soon as the agreed upon job is done, he wasn't done until he knew we were happy. When we did our final review, some of the layout and sprinkler types I had in mind weren't what I imagined. How am I supposed to know, I'm not a sprinkler expert. He listened again just like day 1 and made the proper adjustments on the spot. This is our first project with him but he's converted us into loyal customers.

Honest and very respectful. Had the courage to admit to providing a wrong cost estimate and apologizing for the mistake. I appreciated the sincerity in which Marceliano communicated this and therefore felt comfortable paying more for the job. I highly recommend Espinoza Tree Services.

I requested to have my yard, front and back, cleaned of dead plants, weeds and some replanting of new plants. Carlos provided me a time that he could come to assess the job and provide the estimate of cost. This was a very fair price for quite a bit of labor. Was certainly an all day job requiring several people. In addition, Carlos picked up the tree, that we pre-purchased which needed to be delivered and planted. I am extremely pleased with the service provided. Service was provided as agreed upon. The team was professional and respectful. I can highly recommend their work. They arrived at the time that was agreed upon and left when completely finished. The work site was left very neat upon completion. I am very pleased with the results.

Gustavo's team took charge. They were diligent about applying two coats of stain, etc. Gustavo has been ardent about searching for a specific variety of tree, saving me lots of time.

A palm tree needed some serious trimming and pruning, and Green Touch Landscape did an excellent job. The palm now looks balanced and healthy, and the back yard looks spotless after the crew cleaned all the debris away. I will certainly contact Green Touch Landscape again later in the season, when I need more tree trimming. Highly recommend them!

Excellent experience, would highly recommend. Ruben advised on our diseased/dying shrub in the front and on our backyard. He and his team cut down the shrub to the concrete, resecured our gingko tree and really cleaned up the front, increasing our curb appeal. Then, they cleaned up the back, split and spread out our bamboo, cut down our jasmine and cleaned up the overgrowth. We are very pleased to get this project accomplished through Ruben and feel we got a good value from his bid.

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

Ramirez Landscaping was absolutely great! Jose responded within minutes of my request. He visited the next day to provide a quote. After we agreed on pricing, he returned the following day with his crew and completed the tree trimming in one day (despite it being the hottest day of the year). They completed everything I asked and more. Were polite, friendly, on-time, quick, and very clean. I highly recommend them for tree trimming and yard maintenance.

Siai did an exceptionally high quality gate and pergola for the end of my driveway which will soon be a gateway to a patio existing garden. He works alone and is therefore personally involved in the whole project. He is an honest man proud of his work as he should be. Competitive bid. Highly recommended.

Great beautiful work performed at very competitive price by Jose and his team. Trees pruned, large palm trees transplanted, very large maple tree planted, tons of landscape installation work - all done as requested. Showed up right on time each day and cleaned up with care. Very friendly, pleasant, hard-working team. Would hire again in a second!

I was impressed with the quality of work that Shaping and Restoring offered me. Anselmo trimmed three of my rounded shape trees perfectly. He also worked on our oak tree, willow trees and planted some beautiful roses in my garden. I didn’t know Anselmo could also help me with my old sprinkles that didn’t work, he replaced my old irrigation system including an old sprinkler timer that I did not know how to use. I was beyond satisfied with the quality of work and great customer service I was provided with. I highly recommend Shaping and restoring.

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.
