I have gone through many gardeners over the years and Jose is turning out to be one of the best. He does a beautiful job, does any extras I ask him to do, he will let me know if he can't show up - he has never missed a day so far. Very reliable and very easy to work with. I hope I never lose him.

I loved these guys! Super kind, hardworking and humble. I mean they actually closed my gate, took all trash, communicated with me, charged me a reasonable price and even offered me advice on my lawn. I mean the English was a little broken with one of the guys and then perfect English with the other but the effort these guys put into their work was great! I haven't worked with landscapers this caring in a long time. I have found my new landscapers and I am so thrilled because I have the entire family coming for the Holidays and now my yard is perfect. Thanks guys!

Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.

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.

Ricardo was incredibly professional and responsive from the get go. He responded to by initial inquiry straight away and worked with my crazy schedule to get a time locked down. His prices are more than reasonable and he did a great job making our front lawn look presentable. He showed up right on time and was very kind. I will be recommending him to neighbors and anyone who is looking for a great landscaper!

My whole cedar fence was replaced efficiently, fast, and they were very clean. It only took two days. They gave me a good price. My neighbors were also very satisfied with the work since we share the fence and are hiring them to replace the rest of their fences. I also intend to hire them again for other landscaping projects. I highly recommend them.

Matthew was very hardworking and easy to work with. We have .6 acres that had been neglected for over 5 months, so to say it was a big job would be an understatement! Our yard looks amazing! I would definitely recommend him (and already have) to anyone looking for a superb landscaper!

Charlie did a good amount of landscaping and softscaping on my backyard this year. He also did some fencing, paint jobs, and installed pavers for me. He is reliable, takes directions well, and his prices are competitive. ~ Dan V. San Diego, CA

Jason, Jon and their team did an amazing job! They installed pavers and artificial turf in our back and side yards. After meeting with many landscapers we felt comfortable choosing JSJ! They delivered quality work at a fair price and were very professional throughout the process. Jon is great at his craft and is very accommodating! Jason and Jon also had a lot of great ideas throughout the process. We would definitely recommend them and now love spending time in our backyard!

We had a fairly large front and back yard cleanup project that we hired VP’s Landscaping for. Vincente and his crew showed up on time and were very professional. He made several suggestions as to which plants to keep and which couldn’t be saved, as well as which flowers to plant in the back yard. All across the board VP’s Landscaping was very professional, the quality of the work is excellent, and he is very knowledgeable. We’ve hired him for weekly maintenance.

Jordan as a person was very nice. His inital follow up was prompt and he spoke very highly of his attention to detail. As a first time homeowner, I know little about construction and heavily rely on the expert knowledge of others to assist with our remodel. We hired Jordan after meeting three other contractors based solely on our interaction with him. When we originally had Jordan out to our house it was for a flooring quote only. Jordan explained he also preformed landscaping work on the side so we added that to our list. Jordan did an amazing job installing the floors! The entire dynamic of the house changed because of the floors. I was very disappointed in a few other areas which is the reason for 4 stars. We do not currently live in the house although we do have a few items in place for weekend visits. Towards the end of the job Jordan said that they were mostly finished so I had gone to check out the progress. The tile work in both bathrooms is crooked. The master bath is very noticeable. In addition, my bedding was covered in dust and they had smeared grout into the carpet in my bedroom. There was also sloppy grouting and caulking done in several areas of my home. To add insult to injury his crew decided it was ok to help themselves to my kids popcicles - this actually upset me just asuch as the tile floor. Giving credit where it is due: Jordan and Tim did have my carpets cleaned, my bedding dry cleaned and I was given the option to have them rip up the bathroom floor or receive a discount from my final bill. Jordan did offer to replace the missing popcicles as well although that never did happen. The landscape looks nice as well but we asked to keep the remaining turf and that also didn't happen. I asked jordan about it and he said what was salvageable was in our shed - it wasnt. Again, I was very happy with the floors but the other items make it hard to say if I would rehire for additional projects. Nice guy but I didn't feel like our home was cared for in the way he said it would be. If you do decide to hire Jordan my recommendations would be: 1. Get a detailed breakdown of the work 2. Notate about the use of your personal items (they completely filled up both our garbage cans) 3. Inspect. Inspect. Inspect. Check every corner.

Ronsi had a positive attitude and worked diligently to complete the tremendous task get our landscaping spruced up so that we can sell our house. I especially appreciated how he transformed our backyard from a daunting field of foxtails and fig leaves, to a cleared space ready for someone else to improve! He has a joyful personality and great work ethic! I highly recommend him! I included a before and after pic of the backyard.

I can't say enough about how my yard turned out. Ramon replied very quickly and after considering two other landscapers I came back to Green World Synthetics for new plants, appx. 750 sq. feet of pavers, a small surrounding flower bed wall and a new gate. It came out better than I could've imagined and it's transformed a once dead lawn into a whole new outdoor living space. It far exceeded my expectations and it was great to work with Ramon and his team who were hard working, honest, on time and a team I had complete trust in. We'll have them back again for the front yard but I can recommend them in full confidence as individual who has little to no experience with landscaping. 100% worth it and thousands less than other quotes I got.

I have been trying to get someone to do this job for weeks. I was given the runaround by various landscapers once I contacted Jake he came over in a couple hours gave a quote on original request and then gave a quote on additional items we wanted done. We arranged a date for them to come out they knocked everything out quickly and came back the next morning and finished our additional requests. It was a pleasure dealing with Jake and his team.

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.

Call these guys!! After calling several landscapers, I was given Russell’s number by a neighbor. I’m Glad he did - Russell was at our place within an hour to quote, and the job, he was done a few days later. Aside from the tree that got trimmed, you wouldn't even know they were there the cleanup was so well! They also took away a fair amount of debris from storm damage the week before. Russell kept us constantly updated on when the work would happen. Nice to find a company that clearly values its customers, and doesn't try and 'do them a favor' by squeezing them in amongst larger jobs, only to end up canceling at the last minute. Perfect score, thanks again Russell & his team!

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.
