Bruce just completed a sprinkler pump and relay box replacement for me today and I would highly recommend him! This guy is a straight shooter who gave me a fair and honest estimate and he did what he said he would do. If your tired of the predator and dishonest big name contractors who are out there, give this guy a try and I am sure you will be pleased. I will be a repeat customer for any future sprinkler system work I need.

Marco of MMM Flooring did a great job. He was flexible in scheduling and adjustments of the work I needed done. The quality was very good and the price was right. I have dealt with many contractors and even handymen/women over the years--some of which do work that needs to be fixed. I hired Marco to fix numerous things in my condo that were messed up by others. I was afraid I would never find a good contractor again. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He has a great attitude and is easy to work with. He didn't argue with what I wanted done, like some "experts" have done. Thank goodness!

Albert & Ellis Landscaping was my third attempt for trimming my trees. The first vendor who replied to my request(called 'A Low Cost Lawn & Tree Service') came on site to assess the scope of trimming needed for 2 carrot trees and gave me an estimate of .... $ 450 - clearly, not "low cost". The second pro - called 'Lawn & Tree Salon' who expressed interest for the job ruined by my schedule with a no call / no show - nothing on thumbtack's messaging board, no explanation. Needless to say, I was skeptical when I reached out to Jay, owner of Albert & Ellis. But the service delivered by Jay reminded me to keep an open mind. 1) Jay came to my home in accordance to what he indicated on thumtack's messaging board. 2) Jay wore a badge with picture totally aligned with the ID photo on Thumbtack which is very reassuring for a older and single homeowner. 3) Jay gave me a verbal quote of $300 and he followed up with a written quote to my email address. 4) Jay gave me a date and time for the job, and he reminded me with a text message a few hours prior to his arrival on the scheduled day. 5) In the past, I hired 3 other contractors to trim those 2 trees. Each one charged a lot more and the work was barely acceptable, in comparison to what Jay and his crew accomplished. MY TREES HAVE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD.

We were so impressed with Kathy and George’s work. They took our overgrown weed filled yard and transformed it into a beautiful masterpiece in just one day! There are so many good things to say about this pro team so let me start with how she arrived early to the appointment and the following day (unlike so many other contractors we’ve had in the past) so that impressed us right away. Just moving here from IL to New Port Richey we were clueless on how to take care of the palm trees and bushes, and what to do to give our home some much needed curb appeal. George was awesome in cutting back the overgrown palms, offering his expertise in plant care, and giving me great suggestions for what flowers and plants to get. Kathy and George worked hard all day pulling out weeds, laying red mulch, and planting the plants and flowers. Everything turned out so beautiful even the neighbors complimented on what a nice job they did! We continue to be so happy and proud of our yard thanks to these friendly, hardworking pros. Kathy is awesome! Don’t hesitate to call her for an appointment!

Lucian was great to work with. He was professional and punctual and the work was done to spec. The project was to landscape an area with shell for a fire pit; remove a citrus tree and gring down an old oak stump. Won't hesitate to contact him again in the future.

I recently had a pool installed and the pool company that I hired left my yard a total disaster. I started calling landscaping companies and Blu Landscaping was the third one I had called but the first to speak to a live person and not an answering machine. I spoke to the owner, James Rester, and within 30 min. he was at my door. After discussing what I needed I was given a quote and within 2 hours his crew was at my house cleaning up and preparing the landscape. My faith in MANkind was restored! Here are a few reasons you should call Blu Landscaping; James’ price was fair, he is very professional and personable, Diane, Blu’s project manager, was very knowledgeable and helpful, work was done very fast and efficient, he suggested many ideas that I hadn’t even thought of (and he was spot on), he checked up on his crews many times during the day to make sure all was going as planned, I was told I could call him with any questions (and I did) and his crews were masters in their art and took pride in what they did. James stated many times he wants his customers happy, and you will be! Blu Landscaping and James Rester really exceeded my expectations! Thank you! Cathy 12/31/15

From the first contact with Jackie, everything went as planned. Jimmy came out when promised and gave us some ideas for what he envisioned and 'knocked out socks' off with the finished product. His estimate was 'right on' with no surprises. My wife and I would highly recommend Tampa Landscapes to anybody considering updating or changing their landscape. When we have more work to do around our house, Jackie will be the first and only person we'll call. You have to SEE their work (and Jimmy's ideas) to BELIEVE it.

We hired Adam after looking for a tree service for our palms, oaks and other trees. Adam came out for a quick and free estimate and ending up giving us a great rate. He brought suggestions based on experience and it was clear he was passionate about what he does. He knew so much about our trees and how best to trim them and make them look their best. Adam and his crew arrived even sooner than they said they originally could. They were amazing and took excellent care of our trees and landscape. We will use them again next year for the same service and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced tree service.

I first hired Juan and his crew to do a labor intensive project of removing, cleaning and placing a landscape grade mesh under the white marble rocks around my property. They arrived as scheduled and completed the job in less time than promised. I have since hired Magnolia Landscape for five more projects and have been happy with all the work they have done. I am happy to recommend them to anyone needing quality landscape work done in a timely manner for a fair price.

After speaking with (3) different patio companies, my husband and I decided to go with Dennis and Allscape Patio based on their reviews, the promptness in which we received a quote, and the friendliness of Dennis when we met! We were not disappointed! Dennis is very knowledgeable about patios, explained our options thoroughly, and provided a great layout for our very sloped backyard. He answered all of our questions quickly (via phone and text) and kept us informed every step of the way. When we requested a last minutes change to our bench, he was happy to switch gears! Many contractors get annoyed with this, but not Dennis! He does whatever he can to make his customers 100% happy with their project.. .and happy we are!! He and his team showed up exactly when scheduled, worked hard, and did a great job! Everyone who sees it comments on how beautiful it is. Thank you Dennis!! You're the best!!

After getting input from several contractors I finalized my landscape design but of the 4 I spoke with only Landcrafters followed through with a quote (why do contractors spend the time to go to a site, and then not even bother to quote?). They showed up when they said they would. The gentlemen doing the work were friendly, professional, and accommodating (spent time with me as we played around with placement). I was also happy with the price. I'll call them first the next time I need work done.

I needed four very large trees removed from my home. I met with seven different tree removal companies and received quotes from five. When it comes to tree removal, finding an honest company is difficult. Many are shady and willing to cut corners to just get paid. When I met with Kenneth with Triangle, it took me 5 minutes to know this was the right company. He is a certified Arborist, he took the time to listen to what I wanted. He spent 30 minutes in my back yard taking notes and measurements. He emailed the estimate same day. We scheduled the dates for the job and he did not push me to do anything I did not want to do. He even came back out to meet me and go over all parts of the job that would be done so there was no question. The job done was hands down, excellent. Zero issues. I highly recommend this company. As you receive quotes for jobs you need done, this company has to be one that you call - you will see just as I did this company is class A rated. I am also a local law enforcement officer in Pinellas County.

We have been using Tapias Grass Choppers LLC for over 8 years to take care of our lawn and landscaping and they have provided us tremendous service. Tapias cuts and edges our grass every week, sprays for weeds on our driveway, walkways and lawn and cleans our mulch beds when necessary. They do an excellent job and their price is very reasonable. We have just sold our house and the new buyers were so impressed with their work that they have decided to hire them for their property

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.
