Mr Kennedy was hired to landscape a small area that presented several unique challenges. He immediately envisioned a solution to our area. We were extremely impressed with both his solution and the fact that he noticed items in our yard that he suggested using to implement in the creation of our project. Thus saving us money for additional supplies. The job was completed in one day and the finished project is stunning. He turned an eye sore into an area we are now able to be proud of. We will be using his services again and would recommend him to others .

We would like to give our recommendations for J&G Landscape Company . Their prices where reasonable and their work, especially their colored concrete work was excellent. Their plants and scrubs are green and vibrant. They finished the work within the time frame that had been agreed upon. They were amendable to any changes that were made during the project. Staff were courteous and friendly.

I was extremely impressed with Citywide Landscape's desire to correctly fix my problem. The potential to take shortcuts existed in a couple of places in the project. Instead of choosing the easy route, they chose to invest the extra time and effort to do the fix right. I was extremely pleased by the professionalism, the amount of personal pride they had in the work they did, and in the repair itself. I would most definitely recommend them to any friend seeking landscape work.

Allan was very professional and had brought two people who worked on my tree. They had done a great job and were done in no time. I'm very grateful for all the work he had done and cleaned up my yard and some other stuff that was left from a previous person. I will be calling him back for future work on my house. I will recommend him to other people who need work on their trees.

Anthony from Wilbur and Sons did such a great job. He is definitely dedicated to his work and it shows. We hired him to do a bunch of things for us including some major landscaping work and he exceeded our expectations on all. Anthony was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him for any landscaping or lawn care work.

Not only did they bring great ideas to the table, they were extremely efficient and even better value! They had to remove some not so pleasant bushes in the process and the space looks completely transformed. Will definitely be using for other landscape projects!

I've used several contactors before to blow out our sprinkler system, getting them to show up and not waste my time is half the battle. Omni and Dave Cohen are by far the most responsive, affordable, and helpful landscape contractor we've used.

The Castle Fence and Landscape team was incredibly professional, meticulous, and friendly throughout our entire fence project. The fence looks absolutely beautiful (with several of our neighbors, friends, and other vendors saying it looks like a piece of art). We would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great fence contractor.

If you are in the market for landscaping services from a knowledgeable, creative, professional and empathetic company, then this is the company for you! One of the most inexpensive services I have used with one of the best outcomes. Our yard was a neglected mess, and Josh offered creative and budget-friendly solutions to transform it into a beautiful and inviting space. (See attached image) He helped us with many affordable options and gave us techniques to help us make our yard health year round. Josh was very courteous, kind, and professional at all times. He went above and beyond to make sure that we understood the work being done and the cost involved. He took his time to ensure we got exactly what we wanted—His work ethic, integrity, and quality of work were outstanding. I am incredibly impressed with Garden Gnome Landscaping and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Working with Mary Pat and her team has been wonderful. She is exactly the person I was looking for. Over the years, my wife and I had put in several landscaping projects to create gardens on three sides of our house. We discovered that while we love our gardens, we do not possess the time and expertise to properly care for and maintain them. Mary Pat was able to come in with her team and quickly bring our gardens back to peak health. Our plants look fresh and healthy again! While most landscaping companies are focused on providing a one time, very expensive “put in a garden and hardscape” project. Mary Pat has really filled a need for us, by providing on-going high quality care and maintenance for our garden. She also has been our “garden contractor”- finding good subcontractors to provide us with other services we need such as rebuilding a retaining wall and changing irrigation. She is easy to work with and has been an excellent communicator. I highly recommend Great Fortune Design.

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.
