Darrell has been helping with our pond expansion and repair. It's been a while since we've had anything done with it and he's had a lot of pond experience and has designed a wonderful addition and solved several problems. We love his economical way of thinking and his engineering skills.

I had them install a colored and stamped concrete patio and walkway. Izzy and all of his workers take pride in what they do and want to have their product truly enhance the yard. Izzy has an artistic eye for landscape design and makes sure that the curves and angles being installed compliment the landscape features already in a yard. Izzy and his team also want to be sure that they are meeting the customer's expectations and incorporating the customer's ideas as they work on the project. I appreciate their willingness to listen to the customer, answer questions, and respond in a timely manner to communications. I also appreciate their accountability in fixing any issues that come up along the way. I would recommend them to others and will keep them on my list for future projects.

Martin and his crew did a tremendous job putting in landscaping in the backyard of my new home. They created a plan that worked with my budget, and were truly a one-stop-shop, providing carpentry, pet turf, sod, hard-scape, raised beds, trees, shrubs, and sprinklers/drip lines. They did beautiful work and were an absolute ease to deal with.

Sean and his crew did an excellent job with my artificial grass/landscape project. I contacted Sean after ‘19th greens’ never showed x3 to complete work. He took on my project at a moments notice and was professional, detail oriented, and easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend and will use 1016 masonry for future projects.

I hired reliable concrete to completely re-do the backyard of my condo. The backyard was so bad previously it could have been featured on it's own episode of Hoarders. The wooden patio was old and dangerous and needed to go! Tony was professional, showed up for our consult on time (unlike 2 of the 3 other companies I received quotes from) his pricing was reasonable and he gave me all of the options from the get-go to make sure I was well aware of what it would cost and was fully in control of the end product! Even though they had seen my Pinterest inspiration they confirmed with me every step of the way that I was happy with the shape of the patio, the color, the seal, all of it! They even went above and beyond by fixing a small hole in my fence that my dog could escape through. I have attached before + after photos! It doesn't even look like the same yard! I would highly highly recommend Tony and Reliable Concrete for any landscaping project that you have.

Mr. Delgado was great! Very punctual and did some lawn maintenance I didn't even request from him initially. I only hired him for a move out landscape job. I wish I could have hired him for a weekly service.

Ron did a great job at a great price. May landscaping rocks were patchy in spots and he re-raked them, leveled it off and put in landscaping fabric where needed. He also put down seed and fertilizer where it was needed

We used J&C Ideal Landscaping to modify an existing standard concrete pad into a much larger paver patio. This project involved excavation outside of the existing patio dimensions, the installation of new base materials to extend the layout and installation of pavers in a unique pattern. J&C were very open to any discussions by my wife and I on the whole how/what/where of the project and handled the whole project under the timeline that we had provided. My wife and I have lived with the new patio design for a while now and spend some time each day through Spring/Summer/Fall enjoying it. It is truly an extension of the house that we enjoy everyday.

Dana revamped the landscaping/plants around my house. I recently moved in and had no idea how to care for the plants. She knows a lot about anything related to gardens/landscaping/plants. Everything looked great when she was done. I would hire her 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.
