Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

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.

Marin landscaping did an outstanding job at my house. He came and gave me a fair estimate. He completed the work while I was at work and when I got off and went home i was extremely impressed by the work he’s done. I will be using him again. He’s professional arrived on time for the estimate and left the area clean.

Rob did a wonderful job. I would definitely use him again. Both the front and back yards look amazing and we are totally satisfied. Here's the unique thing with Rob. He doesn't like to work with drawings or plans. So you either need to totally trust him or have enough knowledge about landscape design that you can have in depth conversations about your problem situations. For instance, even though we had just purchased the home, we could see we had drainage issues around the garage and needed to pay special attention in that area. We had actually previously paid a landscape architect to draw up plans, but we were not happy with how that relationship was developing. So, we paid her for her time and took the drawings such as they were. Rob barely glanced at them. At first this made use nervous. But, here's the thing...if you get too married to a drawing, it doesn't allow you to be fluid enough to adapt to the ever changing situations. Frankly, it worked out for the best. We ended up with a perfectly melded version of Rob's ideas blended with some of the best of our original ideas. Nevertheless, when developing the contract without drawings, you'll need to be a little more specific about things that would have otherwise been called out in the drawings, such as how many plants of what size, how many yards of mulch, how many tons of what kind of rock, etc. It's a leap a faith, but Rob wants to do quality work and make his customer happy, so it's a leap I'm happy we made. (I am incapable of taking decent photos, but Rob had professional photos taken. Please ask him to take a look. They really are beautiful.)

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!

My back lawn was overgrown with tall grass & weeds plus tall weeds / grass covered some river rock areas & a small flat porch. Luis did a good job of getting the lawn & tall weed areas fixed & leaves removed from the ground under a couple of trees.

Jorge Bueno of M&M Landscaping started with my sprinkler system. He assessed the job, gave me an estimate, showed me what needed to be done to fix the sprinkler system. I needed a new timer and 3 new valves, he checked and adjusted each sprinkler head. He finished in 3 hours, gave me a great price, and now my lawn is the greenest on the block! I was so happy with his work!

Ethan is fantastic to work with, professional, responsive, kind, friendly, communicative and responsible. He has transformed our front and back yard into a California style english garden with a mix of CA natives, succulents and more. Everyday I come home and smile watching the bees and birds flit around the yard (before and after). I agree with a previous reviewer, Ethan is a landscape artist. I highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to hire him for future landscaping projects.

Ruhina created a wonderful landscape design for my yards, both back and front. She listened closely to what I wanted to do and produced a colorful rendering of how it would look. Then we went shopping for plants! I recommend her to anyone who has a vision and wants to move it into reality.

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.
