I needed five trees in my backyard trimmed down so I sent pictures and they gave me a quote. They came out the next business day and got the job done quickly and efficiently. The prices are fair and I plan to use them again to trim my tree and shrubs in the front.

Thank you, Sergio, Juan and your crew. Our backyard looks wonderful. Rodriguez Gardening came to our home promptly, they gave me a quote for landscaping and trimming our backyard. I found it was a fair and reasonable so I decided to hire them. They came the following Monday morning and got right to work. The trimming was very professional and not overly done, the bark laid out nice and they cleaned up without a trace of leaves or branches. I would definitely hire them again for any landscaping project I have in the future.

John and his son are amazing. They showed up early and repaired the underground broken water line at in the lawn next to my concrete driveway which was caused by a heavy vehicle driving over it causing a "compression fracture". They checked and adjusted all of the sprinklers and drip lines and fully explained each step. The fee was quite reasonable. The back yard fence needs some work and John is giving me an estimate for repair. I highly recommend John Thompson Landscaping.

Isaac was hired after he responded to our request on Thumbtack within 30 minutes. He met me at our commercial location the same day to discuss the landscaping services we needed. He is very easy to get in touch with and keeps me informed of what his recommendations are to make the property look good. We have definitely been pleased with our selection to use Premier Garden and Landscape.

Pablo and his wife did a fantastic job installing new sod at our house in SAC. Both worked really hard to install, adjust the sprinklers and make sure that the grass stays wet. Their prep of the dirt was amazing. I have also hired Pablo Landscaping to maintain the lawn and make sure it stays green especially with tenants. They also did a massive clean up of our yard before the sod installation.

Outstanding customer service from the exceptionally reasonable initial estimate to the final care and clean-up. Kimo came out said the job was actually very easy (the removal of a single 20' tree), and cut the initial on-line estimate in half. Two days later, my tree was gone, and the clean-up so excellent there wasn't a fleck of sawdust left. Not to mention that the job was done for what I consider pocket change compared to the other estimates I got. I will recommend Wright Landscape and Design to anyone I know who needs future landscaping work done. Nice job!

As a landlord working from a distance, All Season Landscaping was great! I have two rentals and I created a 4-way group texting so that we would all be on the same page. Jerry returned texts promptly, set up the appts. to trim trees in both back yards, was on time, quick, cleaned up all cuttings, sent me before and after pictures, and called to verify he had completed the job! I would definitely recommend him to any other landlords or homeowners!

My husband and I are re landscaping our front and back yards. We hired Philli to clean up the yards so we could have a blank slate to work off of. Philli and his brother worked incredibly hard removing a large concrete patio, metal fence, and many plants including a large walnut tree. Not only did they do a great job with a competitive price for their services, they were also such nice and genuine people to work with and talk to. Highly recommend!

I contacted Jeff through Thumbtack and he responded right away. He came over to look at the job the very next day and was able to complete it the next week! This was very short notice on my part so I was thrilled he could do it so quickly. It was a smallish job, and I was equally thrilled that he didn't turn it down because it WAS small! He was here on time, with a friendly, pleasant, professional manner and had the job done in under 2 hours! I was very pleased with the work and would definitely use his services again as well as tell others about him. And he doesn't just do landscaping! He's a jack of all trades, which is REALLY hard to find these days!

Fernando did an excellent job on our yard for an unbeatable price! He was extremely professional the entire time and created the outdoor space we were hoping for. A lot of landscaping companies we had contacted were very expensive and tried to up-sell us on features we didn't want and that fell outside our budget. Fernando created exactly what we asked and stayed within our budget. I would certainly recommend him to anyone wanting a beautiful yard for an even better price.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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.
