Ed Bilo and his team did an amazing job on our house! We had all types of weeds, ivy, and just plain old nature growing on our home, and even through the walls. I had to plant trees, install sprinkler system, pave walkway. I did some research to find some landscapers. Finally found EBRR and Ed gave us the best price, got it done in a day and did a great job to make sure it does not grow back. I would highly recommend using EBRR Property Maintenance Services and I am thrilled with the work that Ed and his team did. Thank you so so much!

I will say that the whole team work VERY hard and for a very fair price. Make sure that you understand what you're getting. I got a crew of very diligent and industrious landscaping workers, but there is not much design experience there. If you are supervising the work, they will do exactly what you want done and do it well. I would hire them again to do work at my house.

I hired Superior Lawns & Cleaning Services to paint the interior of my home -- living room, dining, kitchen, stairs and upstairs hallway. Dwayne and his team were wonderful. They were professional and on time for both days of work. The pricing did change from initial estimate using photos to Dwayne seeing it in person, but it wasn't drastic. The paint cost estimate also changed. I had to use photos for my estimates because we had not yet closed on the house and I had no way for Dwayne to get in and see it in person to provide a substantial quote, so the change was understandable. The finished work was great and I'm very pleased. I will most definitely use them again for future projects.

If you're searching for a professional landscaper who is communicative, efficient and certain to get the job you want completed in short order, then look no further. Israel was wonderful to work with, and I'm 100% satisfied with the landscaping job he and his team did at my property. Will definitely use him again in the future.

I recently purchased a home that was neglected for 9 months and about to go to foreclosure. The yard was a mess. Victor and his partner did a fantastic clean up, trimming of bushes, shrubs, trees, replacing mulch and edging. It looks great I am very happy. He even added a drainage pipe to a gutter and buried it so it drains to the street. He fertilized the lawn and cleaned driveway and steps and pulled out dead bushes. He was there all day. He had the most reasonsable and fair price compared to a couple other quotes I received. I plan to hire him again and refer him to neighbors and friends that need any landscaping or lawn care services. Thank you Victor!

This is by far the best landscaping company I have ever hired. It is a small family run business, but these guys certainly know what they are doing, and interacting with them has been a pleasure.

As soon as I contacted Santos he was very responsive and came by to give me a free estimate and great advice. He and his crew did an excellent job and his meticulous work has not passed unnoticed in my neighborhood. I enthusiastically recommend him, he is not only very professional but very nice person. If you need a landscaper, you should hire Santos and his crew.

Pedro did an amazing job on the landscaping for our townhouse. The before and after is remarkable. In the beginning there was a slight discrepancy about bricks being included in the quote, but Pedro was accommodating and still completed a quality job for the quoted price. He was patient, took his time, and was very detailed oriented. Not only did he do a phenomenal job on the landscaping, but he was very kind and professional. He always returned our texts and calls quickly and exuded the utmost professionalism. We will be using his services again.

Mr. Montoya showed up on time to meet with me. On very short notice, he took a really huge landscape job and finished the work on time with no problems. He was onsite the entire time. If you want an experienced and bona fide landscaper...hire Montoya Landscape!

Green Art was amazing! Francisco was on time, professional, friendly, and did incredible work. The hostas that he originally planted were not growing, and he came back and replaced them at 7pm one evening. We will be using him for ALL of our landscaping!

We hired Jose to mow the lawn at our old house which was for sale and out of town, and he was great. He mowed on the day he said he would, took pictures to show us, and was very professional. It's rare to find someone like that! We would absolutely use him again.

Maynor and his team came and did our estimate and then his team came two days later to complete the work. We had two trees cut down and a ton of landscaping in the front and back. They were fast, courteous, efficient, and went above and beyond what I expected. We will definitely be using them again for our landscaping/ tree service needs. I highly recommend them.

Thank you Devonte for taking care of my lawn. The rain kept you away a couple of days, however, I appreciate you providing me updates to when you would be available. I will definitely use you again in the future to keep my lawn in good condition.

These young men were polite, efficient and hard working. They are not trained landscapers, and may need a degree of guidance from the home owner -- we had a minor misunderstanding about what to weed and what not to -- but they behave in a professional adult manner and do very good work. I would absolutely hire them again, or recommend them to friends and neighbors.

We received outstanding work from Chris Harvey who performed as a General Contractor to reconfigure the backyard of my townhouse. This effort required building a three foot high cinder block wall at the end of my property, then leveling the yard which had a severe slope by back filling from the existing cement patio to the wall. He built a slate sidewalk from the patio to the wall, covered the patio in slate and built slate steps through the wall out to the walking path behind the wall. Chris had a cedar fence with gate built around the yard and then landscaped the yard with top soil, sod, rock, and plantings. It was done exactly as I asked and in a very timely manner with only interruptions for weather and two visits by Miss Utility. Chris is very sociable and easy to work with. He was present for each sub contractor as they started and completed their work. I highly recommend Chris Harvey Landscaping.

I use Lawnsy for the townhome I am currently renting. We are responsible for mowing the lawn, and they provide that service. It was hard to find a lawn service that would serve small lawn like ours, but they were able to help us out. I am really pleased with their service, they are punctual, and my lawn always looks great after they have been here.

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.
