Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.

I wanted to put my thoughts about Magnificent Landscape Services. When your a home owner and business owner you know the struggles to finding a not good, but great gardener. When I first spoke with Rich on the phone he was very professional. Quick to set up and appointment and it was easy to communicate with him. When we met, I needed a yard clean up, but also wanted continuous maintenance on my yard weekly. I was able to verify his insurance, license, and he even has workers comp. The clean up was done so well, and it was completed in the time period given. So far he has been my gardener monthly as well, and I am not disappointed. I've recommended him to family and friends. Thanks Rich for being excellent at what you do!

Valentin has an extensive knowledge in his field of work and he provided us with many ideas and better solutions for our project. He was thoughtful and understanding about our family. He worked while trying to keep the noises to the minimum while our baby was napping, which I never saw from other contractors! He kept us involved in all the decisions and helped us to find the best options. He finished the project on time, did a great job in concealing the parts wherever it was possible and left the site in the best shape. We really enjoyed working with him and absolutely recommend him to anyones who need a professional for their project

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

Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive. He is pleasant to work with and has my recommendation.

Wow! Came home to find my project completed with more quality than I expected! Carlos and his father Carlos and their assistant installed the irrigation for my new vineyard with high quality subterranean adjustable drip systems that I’ve never seen before so it’s great to turn down during too much rain and turn up when there are droughts. Carlos and Carlos installed new sprayers for my 1000 bulbs and planted rosemary and Spanish lavender. They trimmed the palm trees and fertilized the palms so beautifully just like palms you see in Los Angeles! Wow and then I asked them if they could fix my Christmas lights and said they don’t have much experience but they would figure it out by tomrw!!! Honestly I’ve had nightmare landscapers in the past and have had nothing but wonderful interactions and performance out of these guys. My warmest wishes to these hard working men. Merry Christmas 🎁🎄!!!

So far so good. Walter was on time and professional. He was ready to work when he arrived. I needed a regular maintenance quote for the back yard and also a quote for the landscape job on the front yard. There were clear and fair prices and I look forward to working with him in the future.

I hired Gustavo for 1000-sq feet landscape project. I had him install paver stones, mulch, and clean out the remaining sections of the yard. Gustavo responded to my emails promptly and was able to come out right away to give me a very competitively priced estimate. Gustavo and his crew was very reliable and began work almost immediately. The work took about 2-weeks but his crew made sure to clean up after themselves at the end of each work day. Overall, I am very impressed with his professionalism and work product. Most of all, I am grateful for the little details that I see that he put into the work where some others would have simply skipped. His work is textbook perfect. Thank you Gustavo and I will most definitely hire you again very soon!

Miguel, Luis and team did an fantastic job at our new place. We wanted to get started with landscaping and maintenance but had to clean up the yard that had a lot of outgrowth, poison ivy, tall grass etc. Their quote was not the lowest but the most knowledgeable as they scoped it correctly. Miguel was in contact through the process and was sure to only eliminate the bad species. We are considering hiring them ongoing maintenance as well

Good Value, High Quality, Efficient Work. We recently bought a house and called on Lifetime Remodeling to help us with a kitchen remodel and replacing the old roof. My wife and I are inevitably more difficult as clients than your average homeowner is, but we could not have been more impressed with Lifetime Remodeling. Firstly, their pricing knocked the competition out of the park, and the completeness and detail in their proposal and scope of work is like nothing I've seen before from contractors . As a home owner we were initially wary of having an additional external project manager on site, but Samuel and Matan from Lifetime Remodeling are absolutely fantastic: knowledgeable, reliable, resourceful and respectful of our role to design the project. The work itself was performed to a really high standard: the crew were excellently coordinated by Frank the foreman; they came when they were supposed to; and were clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to others.

I would like to give my whole hearted recommendation to Black Diamond! From the scheduler, Travis, to the Project coordinators, Amy and Kia, to the Foreman (woman), Flor and Erik and the rest of the crew, we can't express how happy we were with the work and the experience. We originally had them repave our backyard, the work was done ahead of schedule and exceeded our expectations. The crew was great. We were so happy with our back yard, that although we were going to wait to redo our front, we couldn't wait to have our front yard look as good as our back yard and had them start the project right away. We were so happy with the back yard that we didn't bother with getting other quotes for the front yard. We knew which company we wanted to do our front. The scheduler, Travis, was very accommodating to coordinate with outside contractors to allow these contractors to complete work in the middle of Black Diamond's job. Once we demolished the front we realized that our main drain needed to be replaced. We had to hire outside plumbers. This job took longer than expected but Travis was able to work around the delay and even though the project was delayed (not of any fault of Black Diamond), Travis made sure the job started timely after the plumbers were finished. In addition, we had some minor issues after the job was completed and Travis and Black Diamond were able to provide timely follow up to take care of these issues. Project Coordinators, Amy and Kia treat you like family. They care about you as a customer. Kia is very detailed oriented, willing to give his opinion in our best interest. Flor and Erik were always friendly and would work around and listen to our ideas. They would try to incorporate our ideas and give ideas as to how to improve upon our ideas. Erik is a "master craftman" taking obvious pride in the quality of his work.

Jose and his crew did a great job in building a dry creek area for my front yard. Jose is a talented individual with imagination and great resources in creating beautiful and functional landscape projects. He can tackle many different projects --- from constructing new driveways with pavers to installing a water system for a beautiful waterfall and pond. An honest, sincere, kind, and caring individual who is dedicated in doing his best for his clients.

Bill and his team helped me put in landscaping which met Santa Clara County's Landscape Rebate Program requirements. They did an excellent job! Nothing was too much trouble, even when I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to buy more plants (including a maple tree) and to add some flagstone. Would highly recommend Perfect Landscaping!

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.

It was great working with Edward. The work he and his crew did exceeded expectations. The deck and turf installation were done very well. There were a couple delays, from suppliers, but Edward kept us informed and put in extra hours to get the job done. He offered great value and was easy to work with. We will definitely call Edward for future projects.

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.
