Sherman from Landscape CF has been wonderful to work with. He has been responsive to my needs and requests. Since I could not be at the home when he did the work, he texted me completed pictures to me - without my asking. He is professional and reasonably priced. I would heartily recommend him for any of your lawn care needs.

Edward was excellent! I have no green thumb whatsoever (I can't tell the difference between a weed and a plant) so needed someone to help with the general upkeep of the various shrubs, plants, and hedges in the front and back yards. Edward came by, educated me on the various work (trimming, spraying, etc.) that needed to be done, and then got right to work. My yard looks a million times better, and I'm looking forward to seeing my plants flourish again!

Mr. Morgan contacted me with urgency, came the following day with his team and scoped the property with me and due to the large size of the work that needed to be done; Mr, Morgan confidently told me his price and I was amazed. And they say you get what you pay for and the next day he was here early and did a great job with his team and did more than I expected. The landscaping looks great and they are very kind and courteous. Mr. Morgan and his team are passionate and you can tell by how the greet you and are ready to take on the project.I'm very happy with the service I received and the project being completed with urgency. I will be using Morgan's Tree and Lawn Maintenance often.

Wilbur was a pleasure to work with. He completely replaced a roof on my home and was professional at all times as well as ready and willing to answer any questions I may have had. His work was excellent and completed in a timely manner. He is there and participating in the work being done, not just a voice on the phone when problems occur. Not only will I call Wilbur for any future roofing needs of my own, but I would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced roofing contractor.

I was taught Christian values by my folks. This produced an excellent reputation for our family business, Mandarin Foam, Inc., from 1979 to 2004. I sold out after losing them, but am now standing behind my old work and am planning on continuing the tradition of honesty and hard work I was raised with!!

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.
