We had a complete landscape overhaul project which we submitted on Thumbtack and received a prompt, courteous response from AA Cardenas. We had high-level plans for what we envisioned but also wanted to gain input from a professional opinion. During our initial meetings with Arisel Ortega (owner), he provided ideas and examples from other comparable projects that solidified he was the right person for the job. The estimates provided were comprehensive and reasonable. Arisel and his crew are extremely hard-working, and set realistic timescales for various stages of the project through completion. The attention to detail and overall quality of workmanship is high. We could not be more pleased with the end result. I highly recommend Arisel (AA Cardenas) for any landscaping need.

After 4 years of drought our landscaping looked pretty bad. We had Valentin come and give us some ideas about converting to a drip watering system and landscaping with more drought resistant plants. Valentin and his landscaping staff came up with some excellent ideas. We approved, they went to work and the finished product is better than ever dreamed. Valentin worked with us every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and give us good ideas.

Matthew was thoughtful, informative and very communicative in the lead-up to my selecting him for some stair repair work. He and his team delivered on time and within budget, consistently providing unsolicited updates as he went. I could not be happier with the work or the interaction through project. I highly recommend Matthew for anyone seeking help with their residential reconstruction projects!

I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.

Ricardo inspected the work to be done, gave an estimated, fixed a time and showed up punctually to finish all the tasks agreed upon. Very professional. Did not try to sell anything that was not needed rather focused on what was needed. And gracefully brought me up to speed on what needs to be done for proper lawn care. I will definitely hire him again for any landscaping / gardening work

We recently purchased a home and the previous owners had deferred maintenance on much of the landscaping. Miguel was very responsive. He and his sons did an outstanding job trimming trees and hedges, shaping bushes, and pulling weeds. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.

My wife and I have been working with Pedro Carrasco every week since March. He has been working along side us to tackle our very own DIY landscaping project. We consider finding Pedro a huge blessing as we could not have done this project without his professional expertise and extensive knowledge of all things landscaping. Pedro has been nothing but professional and happy to help whenever he possibly can. The project started off as a simple consultation for him, and turned into him working tirelessly along side us and extended family day after day to landscape our backyard. Not only does it feel like we have made a new friend, he's become part of our extended family. Aside from the personal relationship we've built over the weeks. He is a very knowledgeable professional and has an expansive knowledge of landscaping products and materials, especially in relation to irrigation; which is his main specialty. He is very accommodating with his schedule and always willing to help whenever he can. He anticipates what we need next and has shown up at our house several times with supplies we needed, just so we didn't have to make an extra run to the store. He has already been referred to several of our family, friends and neighbors for their landscaping projects, and has been very accommodating and responsive to them. He is a fun work partner and one of the hardest working people we have ever met, we would recommend him for any landscaping project.

I can't say enough about Black Diamond Pavers - from their office staff, project managers and workers! If you are looking for top notch service and people who pay attention to detail - look no more. We had Richard Domanski as our project manager and couldn't have been happier. He held our hands as he drew a picture in our minds of what our backyard would look like, then he took all the measurements, showed us a 3D computer layout of what our actual backyard would look like when his job was completed. Then our project started and we had Angel has our lead guy. He was absolutely fantastic - knew what he was doing and gave his opinion when asked. I never felt weary of going with his ideas. We had 1,000 sq foot patio with a seating wall around the perimeter put in. Angel and his team showed up ready to work by 8:15 am and left when it got dark out. They cleaned up everything, everyday. We never had a mess. Richard was at our property at least twice a day - checked in on his workers before they started and then came by right before they left. I have never met anyone like Richard - he pays attention to detail and is a perfectionist in his work. If there is a problem that he has never encountered , he will rapidly research and propose solutions for us. He definitely goes above and beyond what is expected. He treats you like family and will guarantee his work 100%. I will not hesitate to call Richard and Angel and Black Diamond Pavers for all my future landscaping needs.

David and his crew did a fine job replacing our old front sidewalk. David is easy to work with, understood immediately what we needed done. I've done minor concrete work myself when I was younger, so I know what is involved, and I was pleased with the efficiency and worksmanship. The only minor glitch was a minor lack of communication about when the last phase of the work would be completed, I would have appreciated an extra phone call or e-mail when David got delayed. Still, I'll be contacting David if we need concrete or landscaping work in the future.

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.
