I can't say enough about Black Diamond Pavers - from their office staff, project managers and workers! If you are looking for top notch service and people who pay attention to detail - look no more. We had Richard Domanski as our project manager and couldn't have been happier. He held our hands as he drew a picture in our minds of what our backyard would look like, then he took all the measurements, showed us a 3D computer layout of what our actual backyard would look like when his job was completed. Then our project started and we had Angel has our lead guy. He was absolutely fantastic - knew what he was doing and gave his opinion when asked. I never felt weary of going with his ideas. We had 1,000 sq foot patio with a seating wall around the perimeter put in. Angel and his team showed up ready to work by 8:15 am and left when it got dark out. They cleaned up everything, everyday. We never had a mess. Richard was at our property at least twice a day - checked in on his workers before they started and then came by right before they left. I have never met anyone like Richard - he pays attention to detail and is a perfectionist in his work. If there is a problem that he has never encountered , he will rapidly research and propose solutions for us. He definitely goes above and beyond what is expected. He treats you like family and will guarantee his work 100%. I will not hesitate to call Richard and Angel and Black Diamond Pavers for all my future landscaping needs.

I hired David of Genesis Concrete and Landscaping to completely overhaul our backyard. From the initial bidding to job completion and cleanup, David and his team were fantastic. Originally, my project included just a concrete patio and walkway. David gave me some great ideas and worked closely with me to create a beautiful, flowing design. His team put down the concrete like artists adding paint to canvess. The curving lines flowed beautifully and turned out even better than I imagined. In addition to the concrete, David showed me how spending a little more could totally enhance the character of my house. He made me an offer that was literally too good to refuse, and in addition to the concreate work I hired him to lay about 400 sf of artificial grass. His team spent a lot of time cleaning up the jungle which was our backyard, and he promptly removed debris and even power-washed my driveway at the end. Overall, the price was fair and the end result was so much better than before. I can't recommend David highly enough! For price, quality, flexibility and expediancy, David is hard to beat.

Ricardo and his team were busy with another job, but fit us in so our job could be completed on our timeline. The job was completed with some additions along the way as we both saw fit to both of our satisfactions. We now have a fabulous deer proof garden space with 2 gates! I recommend RR Landscaping and look forward to working with them in the future.

I needed ideas to improve my front side yard and Edward came out right away and gave me a very competitive bid to install irrigation to connect to my existing system and put in sod, as well as topping off the bark in all the planter beds in my entire yard. Even better, he was able to start the job very quickly and finished it on time. Edward was super responsive, answered all my questions in person and via text/phone, and even put in some flowering plants (not part of the original job) for just the cost of the bags of planting soil he picked up.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
