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!

Rocky came a gave me an estimate that I could not refuse and they came that weekend to cut down and remove two trees and three big limbs off another tree that was hanging over a street. When they arrived they got right down to business. One of the trees was at least 90 ft. tall and one of his crew climbed up and cut down the limbs and trunk like it was nothing. I was amazed as how fast and safely he was moving. They were very professional and when the work was done, they cleared up all the debris and you would had never known those trees were even there. They did an outstanding job and the price was reasonable. Rocky and his team are respectable and highly recommended. I would definitely hire GreenLeaf Landscape again for future projects.

Matt and his team did a great job at taming an unruly landscape that had not been attended to for many seasons. There is still more that needs to be done as this is a multi-phase project. I am not hesitating to hire MJC Lawns and More LLC to complete and maintain all future work. Thank you for your attention to detail and professionalism. It is greatly appreciated.

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!!

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 .

Landscape Design & Garden Installation: “After living in our house for nearly 3 years we decided it was time to make some upgrades to the landscaping. By chance, we attended the Stamford Home Show in March and collected information from numerous landscapers. We followed up with a few and interviewed them at our house. All had years of experience and some good ideas but no one took the time and care to listen to what we wanted and come up with the kind of detailed and beautiful design that Denise Martin of AJM Earth did. From the first moment, it was obvious that Denise and Joe Martin not only offered a full service package of landscape design, hard scape design, execution and maintenance, but that no client was too small or unimportant. The other vendors could barely be bothered with us unless we would shell out a lot of money before even getting to know what their design plans would be. Unlike the other vendors, the Martins were never too busy to answer phone calls, emails, and texts right away. They lavished us with time and attention every step of the way. It was clear from the outset who had presented us with the best designs and who would provide the kind of customer service we needed. Throughout the process we were amazed at the attention we got. We can’t imagine any other landscaper spending as much time with us, being as available as Denise was, or taking the care with our property as if it were her own to get everything just right. Whenever there were unforeseen challenges along the way, Denise persevered, day and night, to make sure that the design was executed as promised. She always made us feel that our project was her passion. Cars slow down now as they drive by to take in the lushness of the landscaping. People who walk by stop to tell us how beautiful the garden is. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the landscaping. It is truly breathtaking! We can’t imagine working with a more talented, dedicated, patient, and kind landscaper. Clearly, we made the right choice.” Stephen Stamford, CT

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.

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.
