Andreas and his crew were professional, did a great job trimming 2 trees thoroughly, grinding two stumps, using the sawdust as compost for our garden and cleaned up everything after they were done so the front and back were clean. They were careful to protect my hot tub from any falling limbs, too. Thanks Andreas!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Working with Carlos really was a great experience. Not only the price he quoted us for “huge” tree removal was fair, he went above and beyond. He was very communicative at every step of the project. Him and his crew were polite, punctual and professional. We added some work to the on going project and Carlos work it out. I was not on site all the time but I felt completely at ease and the end result show a work of quality. We are super happy and will certainly stay in touch with Carlos for future work. We highly recommend Carlos and his team for small or large tree landscape work.

Complete sprinkler installation of front & backyard. Work was completed in 2 days in a very clean & professional manner! I was impressed with Ms. Santiago's hardworking crew and the fact that they all worked well with one another to finish the project. The project was huge to undertake due to the fact that the front yard is massive & I wanted to save some existing plants & shrubs. They worked around the areas that I wanted to salvage & I was very happy. New sprinkler system is amazing & all areas of the yard are now receiving water. Pressure is excellent & pleased with the quality materials she used for the job! All Rain-bird sprinklers! Norma also salvaged my old Rain-bird timer which she informed still had some years of use. Timer is complicated & expensive to replace. Very pleased that I was able to save some money in keeping my old timer! Bets of all Norma programmed the timer according to the city's water schedule!

I am very pleased with the work George and his crew completed last week. I wanted to replace my dying lawn and two brazilian pepper trees with a landscape that conserves water yet it still has some green in it. We were able to keep most of the existing plants and added some more. George offered great suggestions regarding the outline of the yard and the choices of materials. He took the time to share his plans with me and made sure I was happy with the choices. He and his crew worked for several days to complete the work. They left the yard clean and beautiful. I was so pleased that I hired him to do my backyard.

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!

We needed to freshen up our front yard before we listed it for sale. Ryan, from Cutting Edge, came out for the estimate, and we immediately felt comfortable and confident in his ability to deliver as promised. Ryan fixed our sprinklers, removed our old lawn and planted sod, as well as freshening up the flower beds. We definitely recommend Ryan, and will use his services again!

Jamie was wonderful to work with and incredibly professional. The convenience of scheduling and handling of payments was great, and the value of the service is terrific. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is the gardeners forgot to service the backyard during their initial visit. It was simple enough to let Jamie know, though, and they came out the next day to handle it. I would highly recommend this company to others.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
