Rodriquez gardening came out the same day to provide a quote for my yard cleanup and were able to do the job at that time. It was done really fast, one hour tops with three workers. It was rainy and wet and that did not discourage them. My yard was cleaned nicely with all leaves, weeds, and debris hauled away. It was nice to have the work done sooner than I expected and I'm happy with the outcome, I can see the ground again! Pricing was reasonable and hassle free. These guys did a good job and worth considering if you have a messy yard.

Thank you John ! ( Thompson Landscape) We love our new lawn and irrigation system. More importantly, we appreciate the clarity with which you detailed the process involved in the project, and the way you kept us informed through regular texts and photos. No surprises- your estimate was reasonable, and a great investment for us.

Anthony did exactly what I needed, which was a one time clean-up, with planting of new greenery. His price was lower than most and his team was fast. Would use them again for sure!

I cannot say enough terrific things about Dave Weller and Chamberlain Landscape! Anton Chamberlain, Owner/Designer, Chamberlain Landscape & Maintenance, has created beautiful and amazing landscapes. I'm so excited to see the one-of-kind landscapes created and designed by Anton Chamberlain once a finished product! I'm not a relative or friend of Anton or Dave. Thumbtack was my 1st introduction to this company. L.H., Rocklin

Wright Landscape and Design (Kimo) came out to mow our front yard! Kimo went above and beyond. Spent way more time than I expected. Cleared weeds from our rock areas, sprayed front sidewalk, rocks, and etc. with weed killer! Even cleaned our front porch of debri. Made sure his job was well done with me before leaving! The best service I have received from a company in a long time. Punctual, affordable, and exceeded all expectations. Not to mention very personable and friendly! I highly recommend this company, no doubt!

Don and his team did a great sod job in our back yard. Don was very responsive from the start and always kept me updated on the job. His removed our old lawn, prepped the surface, fertilized, installed the new sod, and cleaned up. They completed the work ahead of schedule and they were very easy to work with and it was a good amount of work. The Prestige Landscaping team did great work and I would not hesitate to use them again for my any future sod needs.

AB Landscape was the only gardener to respond to my request. I sent out the request on a Saturday afternoon, Issac responded by Saturday night and I had the yard work done on Tuesday afternoon. We were very pleased. AB landscape is fairly priced, has great customer service, very communicative, friendly and they do great work. We have hired him to do our yard on a bi-weekly basis.

Sean helped me out on a rental property that was in need of urgent work and sure enough he showed up next day with all necessary tools. He said it would take about a day and even though we paid for one day of work, he came back to finish the job the second day PLUS took care of hauling some junk away without us asking. To verify, the review about him not answering was actually right around the time he was helping us and he had gout in his foot so I can confirm that Sean was hurting pretty bad and wasn’t able to help us out during that time either. But I completely understand that something like that requires immediate attention. Thanks so much Sean!! I’ll be calling for all landscape work.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
