Grant's Cleaning and Maintenance cleared some landscaping from the front of our building we had moved out of. They were very quick to respond, and to act on the project. They were very professional and I'd definitely recommend them and work with them again.

G&M Landscaping was fantastic. They arrived on time and charged a fair and affordable rate to clean up my yard. I live by a salt marsh so they needed to cart the leaves away. Will definitely use them again.

Alby does amazing work! He completed a gorgeous paver stone patio for me, complete with a propane fire pit. He was incredibly friendly and knowledgable during my first meeting with him. Throughout the entire process, Alby effectively communicated regularly. He worked incredibly hard during some extremely hot and humid days. He encouraged me to ask questions and spent plenty of time with me each day to update the progress. Alby is incredibly dedicated, detailed, and knowledgable about all things related to patios and landscaping. I'm extremely pleased and impressed with his work, as are friends and family that have seen his work. I will definitely be having Alby back for future projects. Highly recommended!

Five stars!!! Dan did an amazing job on my lawn. He removed all the leaves and overgrown weeds surrounding my house and restored my beautiful stone path. For such a big lawn he finished in no time and was kind enough to offer even more of his services. I will definitely be hiring them again in the future not only for landscaping but for any new home improvement projects. Thanks dan!

It is very rare that I take the time to rate a company but I absolutely had to for Treetastic. They way they transformed my front, back and side yard is amazing. They took down several trees because the roots were cracking the driveway and lifting the pavers. That was my initial call to hire them. They really took the time to explain everything and give me price options. My entire yard was never graded properly and the landscaping as a whole didn't look good - the grass was pretty much dead and very uneven. The yard was very bumpy and uneven. Once Treetastic graded the front and back and put down the new sod, it looked great. They planted some trees for privacy. They also added rocks under the swing set, trampoline, and the side of the house around the pool filter/central air unit. With all of their great ideas and finishing touches, my home looks absolutely beautiful. Each and every one of these guys were knowledgeable, kind and professional. They were here the whole day and paid attention to every single detail. These guys are GREAT at what they do. I've hired my share of companies in the past that did a lousy, mediocre job but this company is TOP NOTCH!!!!!!!! I am very happy I found them on Thumbtack. I got my moneys worth for the first time in a very LONG time. I will definitely refer them in the future!!!! Thank you, Treetastic - you ROCK!!!!!!!

Very happy I called Malpica Landscaping. The owner showed up when he said he would and had a great group of employees. I had them take down several trees and will have them fix a stone wall in the near future. I have already referred them to several people who have used them and were happy with the work.

Green Drop Irrigation came with a 3 man crew quoted an exact price which was more then fair and the worked they performed was good and material used was of good quality. I had them do some basic repairs and asked them to quote me for some future expansion of my irrigation system that I will need. Compared to other quotes I found the pricing to be of good value. They were friendly and polite and reviewed my system and made a few minor adjustment at no charge. I will use them again .

Denise Martin and AJM Earth – an incredibly effective small landscape team – have given me back the garden started 25 years ago and all but lost of late to benign neglect and some overly successful Sea Oats. The combination of horticultural and excavation experience was just what this project needed. My initial inquiry was answered right away and we met to survey the “garden” just a few days later. This fact alone is telling of how very professional, organized, and responsive AJM Earth is. Denise and her husband Joe, as well as third team member Carlos, were great about listening to what I wanted as well as suggesting innovative solutions for what else was needed – and then delivering on schedule and on budget. In late September, the heavy equipment rolled in and all the overgrown beds were “grubbed out”, large stone steps were assembled to my exacting specs, and an amazing Gabion basket wall (one of those innovative suggestions) now permanently shores up an old wood retaining wall. Finally, a back yard screening border was planted with some of my favorite trees and shrubs. All this was accomplished by the team of three who seem to do the work of ten. And do it happily! Whatever your landscaping goal, whether you have no fixed notion or, like me, know what you want but need a ton of help to achieve it, Denise and her team are the ones to call. You will be as impressed and delighted as I am. December 2017

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
