Absolutely and totally impressed from start to completion. I had ebbr come out and provide deep cleaning for our mixed use restaurant and bar. The previous tenant moved out and needed it shining. The customer interaction was second to none, text messages were professional as well as phone calls. You get what you pay for in the cleaning industry and ebbr made it happen and will be using their services reoccurring.

Sam and his team did an excellent job of "revitalizing" our deck and privacy fence. We wanted both the deck and fence power-washed, several pieces of broken or split wood replaced, gouges filled in and sanded, and stain applied. They arrived to do the job when they said they would and finished in three days. (Would have been sooner, but weather was a factor.) Sam even suggested a stain color that my husband and I both love. (We couldn't agree on a color!) The price was reasonable, especially considering the amount of work and care put into the job. We feel like we have a brand new deck! We will likely use his services again soon and would highly recommend to others.

Ms. Amaya was very responsive to our request for landscaping work. After hearing our description of the scope of work, she agreed to text an estimate the next day. The All Commercial Services (ACS) team began work the following day. After about six hours of weeding, soil preparation, planting, sowing new grass seed and mulching, we have already received several compliments from neighbors. We highly recommend the ACS team to anyone wishing to improve their yard.

P&P formed fall clean up and winter shrub trimming services. Petros came in as promised and gave a reasonable quote, so we went with him to do the work. He did most of the work himself along with couple of his people. We are glad to have the clean up done before winter sets in.

Santos and his crew were great! We had to reschedule due to rain on Sunday and they came out today, Thursday, and it rained the whole time while they were planting my shrubs. I had him plant 6 Camellia Trees and 4 Azalea bushes. They did a great job and cleaned up all the excess they dug up, the grass and the dirt. I will be having his team come back for mulching, more planting and some other stuff we will talk about getting done!!

The entire experience with Solana Landscapes was perfect. Mark (the owner) communicated with me often, provided a written estimate the same day and performed the work over a period of a weekend. My yard is absolutely beautiful and I have hired Solana Landscapes to take care of my yard for the entire year including weekly mowing. The prices were very reasonable and the service level was beyond anything I have received from other landscaping services. My neighbors have already asked for Mark's contact information because they loved his work that much. You cannot go wrong hiring Solana Landscapes.

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.

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!

SGP did an incredible job cleaning up my front yard. He pulled the plants, edged the front bed, mowed the lawn, and assisted with debris removal and did so for a reasonable price in a short amount of time. Highly recommend for lawn services.

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.

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.
