We have a large property and have tried other landscaping companies and have been disappointed. We hired Mario and we have been pleased with his work so far. He gave us a reasonable quote and he has been reliable and detail oriented. He is capable of extra projects such as trimming branches, seeding and mulching. I’d recommend this company!

Recommended! Our experience was great from beginning to end. We were provided a timely and professional quote. Prior to the work commencing, we asked for several planning meetings and quote revisions and were provided them with ease. Communication throughout the project was clear and often. It has continued post work and Mark is keeping in touch. We had 14 large trees, miscellaneous perennials and shrubs planted, along with some stone work, drip irrigation and landscape lighting. Mark has stayed involved and is checking in on the trees and plantings. We even asked that he move 4 of the trees after they were planted and he did so without any resistance. In addition to the excellent work, MSF demonstrated patience when the project was thrown some bureaucratic curve-balls. We would consider using MSF again for future work and would recommend Mark and his team.

All around Hall's Landscaping did great work. They cleaned up an overgrown front garden, pulling shrubs our and prepping soil for new planting. They helped select excellent, minimal care plants. The new garden looks excellent. They even removed a rotting dogwood tree in the same day, efficiently and with no visible traces of tree left. We would highly recommend Hall's Landscaping. KMH

We were very pleased with their prompt response on our inquiry on this website and then they came the very next day and did a great job of getting rid of some stumps that they dug up instead of grinding. We will use them again in the spring to help us plan the type of bushes to landscape the front of our house !

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!

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.

We recently hired Ivan to build a stone walk way and to re-grade our backyard, replace existing dirt and grass with sod. Ivan is absolutely the best landscaper I’ve ever worked with and has completely transformed our backyard! We’ve had our fair share of landscapers come in, unable to meet our standards. However, this was not the case with Ivan. Ivan is unlike anyone we’ve ever worked with and you can certainly tell that he loves what he does and that he is proud of his work. Ivan showed up on time to provide a consultation, and was quick to provide a clear and detailed estimate. Ivan and his guys started our work the next day. They were early, courteous and extremely professional. Ivan’s work is impecable, methodical, neat, measured and outright impressive! Ivan himself is extremely professional, personable and works hard to understand your vision; always asking questions, ensuring throughout the project that it is turning out the way we wanted and that we were satisfied, giving clear direction to his team. Ivan delivered the job on-time and delivered within scope and budget. We can’t wait to enjoy our outdoor living space this summer! I would highly recommend Ivan and his team for any and all future landscaping projects and have already committed to working with him to fence our yard and to put in a second walkway!!

Very happy with the work done by Jose and his crew. Needed spring cleanup done on the lawn and mulching of garden beds. Also had the lawn reseeded. He showed up when scheduled and completed the job efficiently for a reasonable price. Will certainly call for future projects!

We first hired Simple Stone in Summer 2017 just to do a walkway around our house. The work was so carefully, artistically & expertly done, and Edgael & Nicky were exceptionally kind, honest and hardworking, that I knew we would hire them for more jobs on our home renovation. They did a beautiful job designing & installing stone veneers on the front of our home, and have branched out into regular yard & garden service for us, including snow removal and landscape design. Simply put, they are THE BEST.

After a number of disappointing experiences, it was a pleasure to connect with S&J through Thumbtack. I was particularly pleased with the communication between us because I always knew where I stood. And this contractor made every effort to work around the awful weather. Would definitely recommend S&J Landscaping to everyone.

What an AMAZING experience. This was the first time I used a true professional landscaper, and I chose them based on reviews, and the care they took when Denise and Joe came to view our project. Denise started off listening to my (low maintenance) desires, and made beautiful drawings and suggestions for what would work. Once I approved their fair estimate, they scheduled the job, arrived exactly on time as promised, and brought along an exceptionally friendly hard working crew. They worked for two days NON-STOP, clearing out excess growth, dead bushes, weeds - and planting three breath-taking beautiful flower gardens. Their work TOTALLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. They transformed messy ugly areas into a place of beauty. I LOVE my new garden, and hope am in AWE of their work. I just hope I can maintain to do their work justice. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND AJM Earthscaping, and will use them for more projects. I particularly appreciated the drawings, advice and follow up by Denise. HIRE THEM - you will not be disappointed!

Jim and his crew did an outstanding job pruning a hedge on my property. His estimate was spot on and I couldn't be happier. He also took about an hour of his time to educate me on lawn maintenance without pushing his materials or service. I would definately hire him again.

I am out of state managing my parents property. Jonathan and his company has been a blessing. Very easy to speak with, professional and keeps his promises. He even sends pictures. His work was equally excellent! It has been a long and difficult journey with many landscapers who have really failed to provide thorough and consistent work, or honest charges. We are grateful to have found Victory Lawns!

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.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
