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.

I needed a re-do of a landscaping project that I installed badly, and AA Cardenas fixed it right up for me. They are affordable, professional, and high-quality! Very responsive, fit me in right away, kind and knowledgeable. Showed up on time, did the work in record time, and the price was SO reasonable.

Jon is great. He got back to me immediately from the first response to the last. I hired him to trim this huge branch overhanging from my neighbors yard that had already lost two branches in the last storm and was threatening to drop another. He was on it and even promised to come rain or shine, and at a fair price. He and his worker were on time, cleaned up all the mess, hauled it away, and were very professional. Such a great experience and I'll call them again if I need additional tree service.

Working with Rich was phenomenal. My lawn and back yard were a complete mess before he showed up. He was nice and easy to deal with. His team went above and beyond, making sure I was completely satisfied with the leaf cleanup, tree trimming, weeding, weed prevention, and other assorted cleanup I requested. And, to top it all off, the price was very reasonable! I'll continue to use their services for all of my lawn care needs going forward.

Valentin came out at a moment's notice to fix a leaking sprinkler head and came up with a simple and affordable solution for us to have more control over our irrigation system. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, not to mention fast! Highly recommend.

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.

Carlos and his team did a fantastic job! You can't even recognize our yard area. The sod and landscaping is absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend him to anyone that needs landscaping work; he is efficient, professional, affordable, and cleans up very well when the work is finished. Highly recommend.

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.

Miguel was able to remove an overgrown palm tree from our home front planter, which was no small task. In doing so, he was able to preserve the brick lining of the planter and left the area ready for new planting. After he was done, he cleaned the area including the windows to be sure it was clear of all debris. Great work! Before and after photos below. Sorry to get rid of a tree, but it was starting to do damage on the surroundings.

Jean and his crew at West Valley Tree Care did a fantastic job on my trees. I had several trees that needed to be shaped, including a 30+ ft Chinese Pepper ("Pistachio") tree. The trees look beautiful and there's now sunlight in my backyard. Jean listened carefully to meet my needs, he and his team executed the job perfectly and neatly, they were a pleasure to work with, and the price was great. I highly recommend West Valley Tree Care.

Our family have been using Son for several years now. He does everything for me on my yard and my parent's home. I was referred to him by my neighbor to trim a small tree and install a new lawn in my front yard. He and his crew did a wonderful job. My lawn looks beautiful and green and my dog loves it. I hired him to maintain my yard and sometime hired him for handy work inside the house.

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.

Ricardo rearranged his schedule to provide landscaping service on short notice to accomodate our needs. He conducted himself with professionalism and showed flexibility in order to ensure we received the service on the day we needed. We were satisfied with the work and as a result are considering hiring him for monthly service. Cynthia CINTAS General Manager Assistant

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.
