Great job. Darryl and Jennifer are very hardworking couple who took care of my terraced backyard and front yard projects They came and complete the work even with the freezing temperature outside. I asked them to do more work than the original plan and they gladly did it. I will definitely hire them again and strongly recommend their service.

When my wife and I decided to hire a landscaper we were not sure of what we wanted to get done. We got on Thumbtack and started a project. We soon had three landscapers ready to give us a quote. Damon was the last one to be scheduled and third time is the charm. When Damon showed up we told him of what we wanted our finished yard to look like. He sent us an itemized quote showing what each aspect of the job would cost. With a grand total of about $3000 less than the other two quotes. When my wife and I saw the price we decided to do some of the work ourselves to save some money. We then got to the point where we had to move about 20 tons of rock to repair the weed paper and place rock where there used to be grass. I wore myself out over about a week of work. Rock is hard to move. We then decided to contact Damon again to get help with the rock. Damon responded very quickly and came out to give us a new quote. We agreed with his price and hired him to move all the rock for us. He got us scheduled and his team got to work within a couple of days. They worked very fast and made the rock area in our yard look better than we thought it could ever look. His team was very dedicated to the job and worked tirelessly. They are very polite and removed all trash from the job. The only indication that they were ever here is the new rock areas. Everything looks great. If you need some yard work done and want a respectful, personable team to do the work then contact DB Landscaping ASAP. PS. Damon is now taking credit card if that is the route you choose to go.

My backyard fence was in a terrible state. I had intended to repair it myself, but finally realized I couldn't. I engaged Derek and Omega Contracting. They responded very quickly with an estimate, and won the job. After "award", the work was completed 2-3 days later. Derek and his team were friendly and professional, I found them very easy to work with. They complied with all my special requests (do's and don't's in my backyard). The work areas were kept clean and orderly, and all debris was completely removed when the job was completed. I am very pleased with my repaired fence, and recommend them to anyone who needs to repair/replace a wooden picket fence.

Jeff & Michelle were great to work with, I'm so glad we found them. We had purchased our home in the spring and our lawn was a total nightmare. They came to our aid and gave us great advice, they even called the utility companies to mark lines for us. Jeff and his son were punctual and had the job done in a couple of hours at a very reasonable rate. Couldn't be happier, they answered all of my concerns and questions. Thanks again!!

Really needed some help with professional weeding of our large backyard before moving. Everyone at MaxTech was very friendly and did a great job. Hard to find good companies that do honest work and we have found that in MaxTech. Will definitely hire for other work!

Extremely happy with MJB. Hired for a residential backyard landscaping job on a Thursday and Mark had a crew on site by Monday. Job included new fence, retaining walls, concrete patio and RV pad, large flagstone patio and more. Job is about 90 percent done and I'm very pleased. Mark was great to work with, so was Alberto. The crew was prompt, courteous and respectful.

I needed a large section of my yard graded and leveled along with a play area installed with playground mulch in preparation for a new playset/clubhouse. Pro Landscape Concepts came to me highly recommended from neighbors on the Nextdoor app. Martin did a VERY professional job! He and his crew were AWESOME to work with! Any time I had a question or needed to be accommodated in some way, they came through for me. They were also very punctual and followed up immediately to any phone calls. Extremely trust worthy. I’m pretty picky about things looking perfect when I hire someone and the project turned out excellent. I have already begun getting quotes from Martin on other projects in my front and back yards. I positively recommend Pro Landscape Concepts for any and all landscaping needs.

Antonio's landscape will be my go to company for anything related to landscaping and sprinklers. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat to anyone considering sod installation or sprinkler repair. Fernando and his crew were very professional, helpful, and the quality of service/work done was phenomenal. He and his crew take pride in their work and the end product shows that. Fernando even helped with our sprinkler system. We've had two companies prior to Antonio's landscape work on our sprinklers and the only thing we got from them was ripped off! Fernando, with Antonio's landscape, came and repaired two sprinkler heads, installed another, and replaced most of the nozzles to make sure that our sod had sufficient water coverage; and his price was so reasonable. He seemed mad that the other companies (who did nothing to help us) charged us so much! If you are considering sod installation, definitely go with Fernando at Antonio's landscape. His sod price was about the same as other companies we received quotes from, but he was able to come and complete the install 3 weeks faster than any of the other companies and the quality is just superb.

We initially sought out landscaping help for the removal of a broken water feature and installation of two retaining walls in our backyard. Having recently purchased the home as a short sale, the yard was in desperate need of TLC and we discovered that it was a much larger project than we could handle. Dena from Gardens in Bloom came out almost immediately to look at our project and had a quote to us within a day or two- which we felt was extremely fast given it was during the peak summer season. During our initial visit we were impressed by Dena's energy and her enthusiasm for what she does; we were so impressed that we decided to add to the scope of work in the backyard (and then eventually the front!). What started out as a "little help" turned into a complete overhaul of sprinkler systems, rock beds, new sod, and flower beds in both our front and back yards, eventually creating a safe and beautiful oasis for our young family that we have thoroughly enjoyed! Dena and Mel have a crew of young men who were so pleasant and polite, and were always there when promised. We were also happy that Dena was present on site every day, making sure that everything was running smoothly and progressing as it should. Any issue or new idea that we had, she was always available and just a phone call away. As the work progressed, we added and changed and played with different ideas, and it was never a problem. We really felt like they wanted us to be 100% happy, even going so far as to have made multiple trips out to "tweak" and fine tune our vision after the project was complete. I can't speak highly enough of both Mel and Dena. They truly are kind people who we enjoyed meeting and we are beyond satisfied with the work that they did. We look forward to enjoying our yard for years to come!

WOW! I could not be more impressed with Lee's Trees! The guys did an AMAZING job removing an absolute beast of a weird plant/weed thing from our front yard. My usual landscaper didn't even want to try, and Lee's Trees got it out of there quickly, cleaned up everything, and were super easy to talk to and work with! I will for sure be using them again! Thanks guys!

Let me start by saying that I almost didn’t hire this company due to their lack of reviews (Joshua’s company is relatively new). However, it was one of the smartest things we’ve done in hiring for the home renovations (inside and out) we’ve been doing over the last year. Josh, takes great pride in his work and it shows. He has a portfolio of beautiful landscaping/outdoor features/designs that he’s built, and will happily show them to you. He has pictures of an amazing water feature he designed and built that you should ask to see! For our job, he went above and beyond many times and has a great eye for detail. He’s honest, easy going and he does what he says he’s going to do (and more!). His pricing is fair and reasonable. If you have any outdoor work to be done, including patios, decks, water features, concrete work (and the list goes on), etc, don’t hesitate to hire Precision Construction. Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like more information. I would love to chance to give Joshua help in getting his company going. He deserves it! It won’t be long before he’s turning work away.

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.
