Don't know where to start with how impressed I was with Carlos and Cesar. I am a business consultant and will use them as a gold standard for how customer service is done right. It starts with their arriving on time to review the job and to bid. They were respectful and courteous. I told them that I needed one tall pine to be cut back so that limbs would not hang into the neighbor's yard. They explained that it would be best to have the entire tree trimmed or it may become unbalanced with one side trimmed and the other not. When they they gave me their bid it was reasonable enough that I asked that they trim two tall pines and two palms, none of which had been trimmed in more than 15 years. A day later I received by email a simply written contract, a bonding certificate, and two certificates of liability. Carlos arrived on time with his truck, shredder, and crew. They were well presented and professional, and got to work right away. This was an all day job and soon the yard was about 6 feet high with trimmings. They crew was very fast at removing the waste even though it had to be done by hand and included a long walk from the back yard to their truck in front. Hardly a half hour went by when Carlos didn't visit me to give me an update on what they are doing and how they are doing it. He assured me that our yard, and the yards of neighbors, would all be cleaned up and returned to how they were before the trimming began. By the end of the day my two 60 foot pines and two palms that were even taller were properly trimmed and absolutely beautiful. When my neighbor returned from work I met her to show her that she no longer had concerns about the limbs that hung over into her yard. She smiled with joy and was so impressed with how nicely the work was done. If she had only known that a few short hours earlier her back yard was buried in tree debris! By the end of the day, I had asked Carlos to have Cesar give me a quote on landscaping work and I engaged Raygoza to trim my tall eucalyptus and ficus, both in the front yard. I am not quick to applaud the work of others, especially those who are paid to perform a service. The work that Raygoza does will now be the yardstick by which other service people will be judged.

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!

I was a little skeptical since there were no reviews but once I met with Parrish, we were put at ease. He is very professional and was thorough in explaining every step. Their employees and owners have had many years of experience in landscaping so though their company is new, the people aren’t. Turfusion was fantastic from the initial consultation with Parrish to the work being completed by Leo and his crew. It literally took 5 days from the initial visit to get the work done and only 2 days to do the entire project. They even added a stone pathway to our front door for free and it wasn’t even in our initial plan. We couldn’t be happier with the work and will be hiring them again to landscape the front of our house. I will add photos later.

Rick Mora and his crew are fantastic professionals. I had a tight deadline to revamp my front yard landscaping in time for a holiday party. They took what was 1,000 square feet of weeds, crabgrass, invasive trees, broken sprinklers, and overgrown palms and planters and transformed it into a water-conserving, beautifully designed and welcoming landscape including drip irrigation. I wish I had a "before" photo (the yard was a giant mess) and these "after" photos show a lot of leaves from a neighbor's giant deciduous tree that moulted suddenly because of a rain storm last night so they really don't do it justice. Rick's team gave my 6 queen palms (that I thought were beyond help) a perfect trim (they're already showing healthy new growth), removed half of my water-wasting sod (more weeds than grass) and replaced it with drought-tolerant plants, removed some cement borders that did nothing except interrupt the flow of the design, and replanted a small section of healthy sod (I needed a place for kids to play). They did this complete transformation in a few days. The team worked tirelessly ...and safely ensuring the sidewalk was safe for my neighbors to walk past. All workers wore safety harnesses while cutting down the large invasive "volunteer" trees and had a co-worker monitoring them to ensure nothing dangerous would happen to them or to my home. I can't say enough positive things about Rick Mora. I'll be asking him to tackle my backyard next!

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

Richard Hernandez and his crew revitalized the landscaping in the front yard of a vacant 100-year-old Glendale cottage. Weeds were removed. Herbicide and fabric were placed to suppress unwanted growth. Drought-resistant plants,surrounded by walk-on bark, were artfully arranged. Unwanted growth in the back yard was cut down as well. Hernandez will continue to maintain the landscaping on a regular basis. I highly recommend him.

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 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.

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.

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.
