Andres was professional and timely. I have worked with many contractors and in my opinion Andres went over and above to make sure that the job was done to my satisfaction. This job was at my office and I have asked him to provide a quote for some work that I need done at my house. I would definitely recommend Andres.

As fairly new homeowners, during the first big rain of the season we found ourselves with a leak in our daughter's bedroom and lots of worries. I quickly requested some quotes from local contractors and was immediately contacted by Stephen. He was quick to schedule a day to come and evaluate repairs and get back out to get repairs done. Our drywall had to be replaced and we also found ourselves with another leak in the kitchen. His follow up was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Stephen, Jerry and their drywall contact. The repairs were completed in a timely manner and very professionally. Thank you again Box Construction!!!

Chris called to confirm our appointment the day before, and she showed up right on time. He got right to work on replacing a defective valve, relocated a sprinkler head, and repaired irrigation controller wiring. This guy really worked hard while he was here. One of the most pleasant contractors I have ever hired, he was professional, and he cleaned everything up when he was finished. I highly recommend Chris and the services he provides.

Cesar was a great person, very professional. We needed our living room floor flatten to meet the other flooring contractor's requirements. The first visit the concrete vacuum did not work and not all areas were flatted but I explained what the other contractor was concern with so Cesar came out the next to work on the areas of concern, so he stood by the quality of his work with no extra charge. I like companies that will do this because not all contracts see eye to eye. Without the vacuum issue, he would have received 5 stars.

I had a wood fence project which was quite complicated because one 20 feet long retaining wall had to be built before the wood fence installation. Tim took this hard project. He and his crews, Ryan and Nick were all hard workers. Every single day, they came to the job site on time, did everything they should do according to the construction code. Besides, Tim was very attentive to my needs and modified the original construction plan by adding one 6 feet long concrete block wall to the iron gate. I am very satisfied with his professional service. Tim is passionate about his job, which makes him outstand other contractors. I'd like to recommend his service to any other's project!

Joe was considerate and not pushy. One of the very few contractors to return a call for a job estimate. He was punctual to the job site and when he had questions he never hesitated to ask resulting in a well-constructed fence.

I submitted my request and Shawn was able to come by and give me a quote and do the work the same day. No other contractors that I spoke to that day called back like they said they would but Shawn followed up and showed up ready to work. I've already received so many compliments on the work that he did finishing my Quartz Stone Accent Wall. Thanks Shawn! I would recommend him for sure for other work and to others

We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!

We just bought a new home and had a completely dirt backyard that we wanted to get landscaped. We hired David right away after meeting with him because he was easy to work with and gave us a great bid that worked with our budget. He also gave us a military discount. We got a mix of concrete and grass in our backyard, which was perfect for our kids so they could play in the backyard and ride their bikes and scooters. We also got an alumawood patio installed that went from end to end of the back of our house. He also gave us a great deal when it came to hooking up our outdoor lighting. We also got a garden wall and sprinklers installed. We are under a pretty strict HOA community because we live in a new housing development and David is well aware of most HOA restrictions. Took him awhile to get us the plans we needed to submit to HOA but we eventually got them and they were approved. Also, a section of our grass in our backyard began to die because the sprinklers were not hitting the area properly and David was willing to replace the sod and add an additional sprinkler. We had a great experience with him and we are definitely going to come back to him when we are ready to hardscape our front yard. Great contractor that is always willing to work with you to make sure you get what you want!

I would not hesitate to recommend HCC. Such an easy and seamless transaction and process from the very beginning . Keli's response time is so quick - which was very refreshing after chasing around a couple contractors just to get a bid on our project. Thank you for all your help and hard work Keli - and thank you for making our project run so well.

Form and Focus completed a full landscaping job for us this past spring. Our backyard began with all dirt, and by the end, we had attractive hardscape, redwood fences, artificial turf, a raised cement deck with seat wall, landscape lighting, a gas firepit, drip sprinklers, and complementary planter beds to accent the perimeters. From the design phase through completion, Jacob and his team were very professional, and especially responsive to our design change requests throughout. We would highly recommend Form and Focus for any of your landscaping projects.

Project: patio concrete extension: addition is 24ft x 13.5ft. After receiving multiple estimates from other contractors, Frank came out and spent time going through my concrete plans and offered great suggestions and a competitive estimate. He was thorough in explaining the project and outlined a specific timeframe for completion. He was prompt, communicated his arrival and departure and always showed up as planned. He is a licensed contractor which added to his credentials. I've hired many contractors in the past and he stands among the best. Glad I listened to my gut feeling when choosing him for my patio project. Thank you Frank .... highly recommend. Turned out great. Don't cut corners on concrete needs ... it will haunt you down the line. Give Frank a call and chance to earn your business.

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.
