Raygoza's did an excellent job and were priced right! I am very selective when I use contractors and expect good communication, professionalism and a good job! They fulfilled my expectations! As I told Carlos, their work affects our company reputation so I need the job to be done right! He and his crew did it right!

I would highly recommend David Conde!! He is nothing less than AMAZING!!! My husband & I bought our home and completely renovated, from top to bottom. We also replaced the landscaping around our entire property. We had hired other gardeners to maintain the grounds. Needless to say, they destroyed our landscaping. I found David & asked if he could take a look at our property & meet with our new landscaper, as we had to replace what the last gardener had killed. David was more than willing to talk to our landscaper & offer his advice too. We are so happy with David. If we are not home when David arrives, he calls us in the evening to explain what should be taken care of. He is a perfectionist & I'm grateful we found him. Our yard is finally starting to look beautiful again. He is very reasonable in price & very punctual too.

I hired Garcias landscaping to clean up a very small yard. They removed old wood chips and laid the new ones I purchased and planted 6 small plants. The job was done to my satisfaction. Sadly I could not keep them for continuing maintenance. They are very expensive to cut the grass of a very small yard

I have had multiple landscapers in the past; however, Ramos Gardens quality of work and caring towards his clients is superior then previous gardeners I've had. I will continue to use and refer relatives and acquaintances for his services.

I had a very large tree in front of my first home I bought and I wanted it gone for our new landscaping plans. A few guys came by and checked it out and gave me a very expensive quote! Daniel removed our tree for a very reasonable price given the size and complexity of the roots. Everyone told me it would take 2weeks and Daniel did it in 1week! He was always respectful and Had great work ethic! I would highly recommend him!

Form and Focus completed a full landscaping job for us this past spring. Our backyard began with all dirt, and by the end, we had attractive hardscape, redwood fences, artificial turf, a raised cement deck with seat wall, landscape lighting, a gas firepit, drip sprinklers, and complementary planter beds to accent the perimeters. From the design phase through completion, Jacob and his team were very professional, and especially responsive to our design change requests throughout. We would highly recommend Form and Focus for any of your landscaping projects.

We want to thank you and your landscaping crew for an exceptional job on our very distressed backyard. You should get an award for this project. We are very satisfied with the results. Our tenants and neighbors are amazed at the transformation. The work was done in a timely manner. And, you successfully worked with our budget! You are a highly knowledgeable guy that does not cut corners. We highly recommend Cutting Edge for any project and will use Ryan and his crew again and have already referred them to friends and neighbors. Chuck & Kimi, City of Orange, CA

Amazing customer service and very responsive. Sean gave me a fair and competitive price for my home project and also gave me an additional promotional discount. He was very responsive and the attention to detail to my estimate was explained thoroughly. Our installer Benjamin and crew, was brilliant, a true master at his craft, punctual and helped us understand what was going to happen and at the end of day our yard was transformed into a beautiful, green and functional yard that we can be proud of. Amazing, friendly, and honest just about describes Elite Artificial Grass. Thank You so much Sean and Elite.

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.
