I can't say enough good things about Jose and the landscape work he did for us! He and his team were professional, courteous and got the job done on time and within our budget. He laid pavers for us in our front and back yard, removed tree stumps, graded the yard and moved sprinklers. He also ran wire for low voltage lights. I highly recommend Jose for any landscape or home improvement job!

I hired Marietta, who is "Miss Landscape", to install and maintain plants in my home. I wanted many, many plants but I'm not good with them myself. Marietta came over and met with me, and then quoted a price for my project - including the plants & trees, pots, and installation. I accepted. Marietta and her assistant were terrific - pleasant and respectful of my time and of my home. Miss Landscape did EVERYTHING it promised to do - something which should be routine but sadly today is not. I've included a few photos as examples of the work. I am thrilled with the results, and I look forward to a long ongoing relationship with this firm as it performs maintenance and upkeep on my beautiful plants.

Fantastic experience with R&R. Ricardo was very responsive and flexible with dates and times. The day of the trimming, R&R rolled up with his crew (4) which in included the chipper and the actual tree trimmer (Efrain) at 8:00 am sharp. I was impressed how Efrain climbed up into each tree and carefully selected and trimmed each branch to the way we agreed upon. The crew was careful not to disturb the rest of the landscape and vehicles near the job. I highly recommend R&R for their knowledge, work ethics and price.

My irrigation pipes burst and caused water to drain from underneath my driveway next to my lawn. Mateo Pedro (MP) was quick to respond when I posted the job and he met with me the same day at 5pm. He dug up part of the lawn and provided a preliminary assessment on his own time. MP was kind, courteous, and professional. He quoted me a flat price that was very fair considering the work that had to be done without knowing the entirety of the problem. He took the time to evaluate my irrigation system and provided tips on improving lawn maintenance. I contracted with MP and he showed up a 7am the next morning and fixed the problem that day and after completing the repair he did a great job of cleaning up. I would definitely recommend MP if I have any additional handyman work in the future. Great Job Mateo!

I was very pleased with all work completed in my backyard. They gave me recommendations for which plants were water efficient and what type of landscape was best for the look I was going for. I will totally recommend them to my friends and family.

Coastline Landscape Development was very prompt to supply a design that would fit our needs and still give us the curb appeal. With the drought we thought that the only way to get a low maintenance landscape was to just have succulents and mulch installed in our property, but no Omar presented a reliable design with dozens of plants that bloom through various seasons giving us color throughout the whole year. My wife loves the whole installation from plants all the way too the pavers installation. Not only did we want a low maintenance landscape but also some hardscape for our patio areas. Coastline Landscape Development installed Antique Cobble Manor pavers, Country Manor retaining wall and Artificial Turf. What we like the most is that not only does the hardscape comes together but as well so does the installation of the plants, it all blends in together with the hardscape and artificial turf. I would recommend Coastline Landscape Development to any one who doesn't have a green thumb and wants great quality work. Thanks Omar and Coastline Landscape Development

JSJ Services built a fence/gate and a shade structure, re-landscaped a steep backyard bank, and trimmed several trees for us. Jason's response was prompt and he got his crew out there quickly to get our job done. The work was completed in a timely manner and as we asked. All the crew were super conscientious and friendly. We plan to re-landscape our front yard in the next year, and we are so pleased with JSJ that we plan to hire them again for that work. They are good people. Thanks Jason & Crew!

Jordan as a person was very nice. His inital follow up was prompt and he spoke very highly of his attention to detail. As a first time homeowner, I know little about construction and heavily rely on the expert knowledge of others to assist with our remodel. We hired Jordan after meeting three other contractors based solely on our interaction with him. When we originally had Jordan out to our house it was for a flooring quote only. Jordan explained he also preformed landscaping work on the side so we added that to our list. Jordan did an amazing job installing the floors! The entire dynamic of the house changed because of the floors. I was very disappointed in a few other areas which is the reason for 4 stars. We do not currently live in the house although we do have a few items in place for weekend visits. Towards the end of the job Jordan said that they were mostly finished so I had gone to check out the progress. The tile work in both bathrooms is crooked. The master bath is very noticeable. In addition, my bedding was covered in dust and they had smeared grout into the carpet in my bedroom. There was also sloppy grouting and caulking done in several areas of my home. To add insult to injury his crew decided it was ok to help themselves to my kids popcicles - this actually upset me just asuch as the tile floor. Giving credit where it is due: Jordan and Tim did have my carpets cleaned, my bedding dry cleaned and I was given the option to have them rip up the bathroom floor or receive a discount from my final bill. Jordan did offer to replace the missing popcicles as well although that never did happen. The landscape looks nice as well but we asked to keep the remaining turf and that also didn't happen. I asked jordan about it and he said what was salvageable was in our shed - it wasnt. Again, I was very happy with the floors but the other items make it hard to say if I would rehire for additional projects. Nice guy but I didn't feel like our home was cared for in the way he said it would be. If you do decide to hire Jordan my recommendations would be: 1. Get a detailed breakdown of the work 2. Notate about the use of your personal items (they completely filled up both our garbage cans) 3. Inspect. Inspect. Inspect. Check every corner.

Ronsi had a positive attitude and worked diligently to complete the tremendous task get our landscaping spruced up so that we can sell our house. I especially appreciated how he transformed our backyard from a daunting field of foxtails and fig leaves, to a cleared space ready for someone else to improve! He has a joyful personality and great work ethic! I highly recommend him! I included a before and after pic of the backyard.

I had a fence installed by another company. During the installation, I had plants destroyed, irrigation broken, etc. I hired Landeros Landscape to clean up my yard and spruce it up. They went above and beyond in cleaning up all the debris, installing a new valve, replacing some sprinkler heads, they planted me a rose garden and some other plants. They trimmed my trees and put up my vines (what they could salvage). They were punctual, easy to talk to, went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. They were also reasonably priced. I was so impressed that I decided to continue with Landeros Landscape for bi-weekly yard maintenance. I highly recommend Landeros Landscape!

I was very happy with the completed landscape project. Bill Sullivan sent 2 extremely good workers who removed a giant yucca plant, added to an existing wall while finishing it with stucco and a flagstone cap, as well as created a beautiful border between the sidewalk and the front yard with attractive-looking pavers. The price was fair and the quality, as well as the aesthetic of the finished work was excellent. I do think Mr. Sullivan knows his construction business, but he is not as responsive or really good at communication as I would have preferred. All in all though, if you are patient and flexible, the work was done very well.

Enrique and his team did an amazing job on our front yard. We ripped out the old grass and a few large trees. We had a combination of flat land and slopes which can be challenge. We went with a drought tolerant low maintenance landscape and couldn't be happier.

We asked Form & Focus to design and re-landscape our front, side and back yards to give us a Southwest Zen feel. Their designer, Katie, worked closely with us to give us just what we wanted working within our budget. Her design included a Japanese style Zen garden (at our request) and new flagstone patio while using colorful stone to significantly reduce the area of our yard that needed watering. We did keep some areas of lawn, but used a new type of drought resistant grass called UC Verde buffalo grass (developed specifically for California by the University of California) that can be maintained at a meadow length, and which fits in perfectly with our natural Zen approach. The project took about 2 weeks to install and was carefully supervised by Jacob and Aaron on a daily basis. They worked with us to make adjustments to the various areas of the design as we moved along, so that everything was sized and shaped to our specs. Their people arrived promptly every day and worked through 100+ degree heat to keep us on schedule, cleaning up each night before they left. Here's what they did for us: demolition of existing landscape, installation of artificial turf, installation of flagstone/decomposed granite walkway/patio, installation of Zen garden including a 1,200 pound boulder, conversion to drip sprinkler system, installation of borders and decorative rock, installation of drought resistant grass and plants throughout. They were a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use Form & Focus for future work.

Russell and his team did a great job with my yard. From start to finish, they built a beautiful retaining wall, improved the landscape by removing and adding many plants and put in a new drip irrigation system with fertilizer tanks that are helping the plants grow and flower beautifully.

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.
