We are now in the process of working with Steve and his crew for our outside home maintenance for the landscaping. We appreciated his thorough knowledge of what needs to be done for us and also his willingness and professionalism in working with us. And, his prices are reasonable too. We definitely need somebody that can take care of our lawn and we trust that he and his crew are quite capable of doing that with their many years of experience in the local area. Thank you and we look forward to a long lasting and good working relationship in regards to the maintenance of our outside property landscaping. Much appreciated!

Rocky and his crew have been managing my lawn care needs since January, 2016. Summer work included installation of new landscaping, complete lawn care (mowing, weeding, fertilizing, aerating, spring and fall clean-up), tree removal, installation of new sidewalk and front porch, renovating large deck. All work was explained clearly and thoroughly, performed in a timely fashion, and expertly executed. Snow removal from driveway and sidewalks is another task completed in a timely manner without property damage. The crew is professional, friendly and helpful and clean up thoroughly upon completion of all work.

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!

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!!

Great choice for patio and landscaping work. Easy to work with, reasonable pricing. See the before and after photos, the work speaks for itself. Dane the owner was able to go over a terrible, uneven and falling apart patio the previous homeowner put in and give us a beautiful, bigger paver patio with proper drainage.

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.

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.

Ive only used Jonathan once, but plan on using him again since his service seemed to impress me the first time. I did not have him do my whole lawn, just trimming around the yard and he gave me a v. good price for that. He was the first to respond and he was enthusiastic about his work which was nice to see.

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include 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.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
