I posted my job & within minutes David replied. We set up a consult Friday, he was here on time and not only quoted me but talked me through various options. I have a townhouse with a very small patio area that I wanted to enjoy. There were dead dried out weeds everywhere. I never opened my patio blinds it was so scary. In less than an hour David & his dad cleaned out the old weeds and transformed my yard to look twice as big. He was very affordable and just a real sweet spirit. His card is definitely saved on my phone so if I hear anyone looking for a landscape extraordinaire I'm referring him and his dad. I am so grateful. Oh, my kids came home Sunday and immediately start playing leap frong on the pavers. The only disappointment is that thumbtack doesn't have a photo before and after feature. #imstillcrying

Benito and his guys did an awesome job with the project we had done in my backyard. We are so pleased with the outcome. We hired Benito for a very large project involving junk removal, fence replacement, landscape design, flowerbeds, concrete removal and pouring, sprinkler repair, and sod laying. We have a completely transformed backyard now. In the beginning, he asked me what did I have in mind and got an idea of what I wanted. From that, we created a layout that would work for me. During the installation, he made it a point to make sure I was happy with everything before we proceeded to the next phase. We even made a road trip to the rock yard, so I could pick out the type & color of rocks that I wanted in the planter beds. I picked out and bought my own plants and flowers. He helped me decide what type of plants and trees would look good. I ended up getting some Japanese Maples, Bougainvilleas, Banana palms, and some grasses. They gladly planted them where I decided I liked them. He also helped me give my concrete a design element that I really love. He put in a "salted" boarder that gave a nice touch. We put a round concrete slab in the yard, that I want to place some chairs and a portable fire pit on. We are almost ready for our first family get-together. I wanted to post pictures, just note that I haven't quite finished staining the fence, but I will post anyways. Benito gave me a fair price and made sure to stay within my budget. I am very happy with the finished project and can't wait to have him come back and replace our other side fence and redesign the front yard also!

Robert and Hunter did an amazing job. I have just under a half acher of property. They did a spring clean up, more like overhaul, on my yard. They mowed very tall grass, blew leaves, trimmed bushes, and they were able to clean my gutters out. The property looks gorgeous now. The price was great for the quality and quantity of work provided and they got it done fast. Originally I was looking for a one time clean up, but due to their quality of work, I will be continuing service with them. Highly recommended.

Wright Landscape and Design (Kimo) came out to mow our front yard! Kimo went above and beyond. Spent way more time than I expected. Cleared weeds from our rock areas, sprayed front sidewalk, rocks, and etc. with weed killer! Even cleaned our front porch of debri. Made sure his job was well done with me before leaving! The best service I have received from a company in a long time. Punctual, affordable, and exceeded all expectations. Not to mention very personable and friendly! I highly recommend this company, no doubt!

Dave Weller, Operations & Sales Manager, Chamberlain Landscape & Maintenance, was my initial contact with the company. Mr. Weller exceeded my expectations and has gone above & beyond my wildest dreams. Dave Weller is Professional, Courteous, Expeditious, Always Prompt in Keeping Me Updated/Returning Phone Calls and Networks w/ Others. Mr. Weller is truly a Terrific Problem Solver! I cannot say enough terrific things about Dave Weller and Chamberlain Landscape! Anton Chamberlain, Owner/Designer, Chamberlain Landscape & Maintenance, has created beautiful and amazing landscapes. I'm so excited to see the one-of-kind landscapes created and designed by Anton Chamberlain once a finished product! I'm not a relative or friend of Anton or Dave. Thumbtack was my 1st introduction to this company. L.H., Rocklin

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.

I needed a new gardener in the Tracy area. Since I was already on Thumbtack, I typed in my search and got a response from Paul Machado of Machado Landscaping and Olga's Janitorial Service. Paul came out personally to give me a bid for mowing and weeding. I was very pleased with his professional manner (and he liked my dogs, too!). Paul has been doing my yards for about a month now and I am very pleased with his work and his pricing is very competitive for the area. I would recommend him to others without hesitation. In addition, he and I have discussed how to improve the drainage in my backyard, possible trees to plant and other issues to make my yard the peaceful place I would like it to be. I look forward to working with Machado Landscaping for many years to come.

I have only been using Prestige Landscaping Company for a few weeks now, but they have provided excellent service and fulfilled all my expectations. My yard looks great and it is so nice to come home from work and have the yard all cleaned up! I would definitely recommend Prestige Landscaping for weekly yard service/maintenance needs.

My husband and I hired Isaac and his team at AB Landscape to create a Xeriscape (low water, low maintenance) design for our front yard. We are so happy with his work and had a great experience working with him! We did the majority of the demo ourselves to save some money, but his quote was fair and the end project was exactly what we wanted. While we had a good idea of the direction we wanted to go on the overall design, Isaac executed it wonderfully. He had great suggestions of plants, rocks and general design ideas and incorporated our requests with every step. He was responsive and timely with his work and even completed the job faster than expected. We would recommend him to anyone and will use him in the future if another landscape project comes up.

Justin and David help to clean and shape my front and back yards. They also adjusted the sprinkler system so that it waters the right areas. They showed up on time and did a great job, which is beyond my expectation. They are also willing to communicate with me about the gardening works. I would highly recommend them to take care of your yards.

Dmitry and Tim were great to work with. They are hard working professionals that will spend the time to discuss your project with you and let you know exactly what you can expect. They were very helpful in offering suggestions and opinions that made a lot of sense. The work they performed included removing my dead backyard lawn with a sod cutter, replacing and resetting sprinklers, laying new sod, yard cleanup, bringing in and spreading out mulch and river rock, aerating, seeding and fertilizing my front lawn, planting drought resistant plants, installing new drip lines, sprinkler valve maintenance, pulling and replacing the sprinkler wiring, installing a new WiFi sprinkler timer and setting and fully testing the new system. When they were done they completely cleaned the area so it looked better than when they got there. On top of that, Dmitriy noticed that my downspout straps were missing screws so he went around to all my downspout and secured them. I would highly recommend Dmitriy and would definitely use him again.

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.
