Jesus was very dependable and professional. He replaced our dead lawn with a beautiful new one in 3 days. His bid was also substantially lower than 2 others. I will call him for future projects for sure.

I am very satisfied with the tree removal service I received from Fernando at Duran Landscaping. He arrived as scheduled and began work immediately. He is a no-nonsense professional that takes both the customer's and his time seriously. He (and his crew) completed the job in 3 hours... I thought it would take a good part of the day. I am definitely using Duran Landscaping for all my future tree and landscaping needs. I highly recommend him... you won't be disappointed.

We've found our landscape installer. Rueben and his crew know what they are doing. I would recommend them to my friends. We hired them in the middle of winter and they worked every day that weather permitted them to work. They were reasonable and fair in their pricing and Rueben (the owner of Limon Landscape) is truly passionate about his work. It is obvious that this is not his first rodeo. His guys, Daniel and Fernando are very good at what they do too. Rueben listens to our ideas and he's also got great ideas to contribute. We liked working with this team and will be hiring them again. Photos will come soon.

Called Lee for a quote and he sent someone out the next day! My front and back yard was a mess and the the quote they gave was $200 less then the other 2 businesses that had come and given me a quote. That afternoon they sent their workers and did my front and back yard bushes and grass. It looked amazing! I wish I had a before and after picture! I hired them to come every other week and they are more then affordable and do an amazing job! The workers along with the owner Lee are super friendly and polite! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a affordable lawn service that does incredible work!!

I've known Stephen for many years and he is a wonderfully good natured, kind, hardworking, honest and thorough person. I have worked as a designer on three projects with Stephen. He was knowledgeable at every stage of installation, politely addressed issues when the plan differed slightly from the site and helped to problem solve solutions keeping the overall budget and design theme in mind. I would highly recommend Stephen for all of your landscape needs.

Sean Thomas of Thomas Lanscaping was OUTSTANDING! He and his crew were punctual, hard workers, extrememly knowledgable in irrigation, drainage, and all aspects of landscaping. He found ways to save us money, and listened to what we wanted. He doesn't cut corners - does everything right the first time so we won't have problems later. Very customer service, polite, and the results were fabulous. Our backyard turned from a pile of weeds and drainage nightmare to a beautiful english garden. We are thrilled with the work Thomas Landscape did, and plan on using them again in the future for the front yard. Oh, Sean also worked with us to keep the job within the budget, but give us everything and more than we ever imagined. Best decision we made was to go with Thomas landscapes for this project!

Pacific Garden Artistry is owned and run by Richard and working with him is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise difficult business to find true professionals in. His education, dedication to hard work and aesthetics, and professionalism is 2nd to none in the gardening and landscaping industry. You should be so lucky to be able and have him help you bring your overgrown, under utilized, unimaginative outdoor space into something beautiful. Do yourself a favor, hire PGA and Richard.

Kalman is great to work with. He spent a lot of time listening to what we wanted and making multiple revisions to our landscape for our front yard. He was very responsive over email and came out to our home as well. After having the plants in for almost a full year, we are very happy with the results. He even helped us pick out a tree at the nursery when our first choice was not available. He goes the extra mile! We couldn't recommend Kalman more!

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.
