I can't be more pleased with the total experience of hiring Teddy Rodgers. I Googled "landscape design" and Thumbtack popped up with One-Of-A-Kind Landscape. I called Teddy and he answered the phone. I told him what I wanted and said he'd be over in about an hour for an estimate since he was in my neighborhood. He is very knowledgeable and has his own nursery which is a plus. I told him to come back to do the work. I wanted bushes, roses and plants in the front and back yard. That was a Friday and on Monday the job was finished. He will be back each month to fertilize my lawn. Hire Teddy and his crew, you won't be disappointed.

I have hired Joseph for multiple projects and he has gone above and beyond expectations! I am more than happy with his work. I hired him for an installation job and before he began, he asked what my future goals were and if I would be staying in the home for a while. He had quoted me on painting the exterior of the home, replacing my fence and also landscape design and installation. All of his prices were extremely reasonabe and honest.Joseph and his crew at flawless landscaping had great integrity, amazing professionalism, and outstanding customer service! You can tell Joseph trained his team to do quality work and to strive for perfection. After every work day Joseph and his crew kept me informed on each phase on the projects. I highly recommend them to anyone! Best wishes to you, and your future success, Joseph!

Chris and Danny were great. They took our not-so-good sprinkler design and made it workable again. We will definitely be calling them again for any of our irrigation needs.

I would highly recommend Albert & Ellis landscaping. They were professional and I am super happy with the work they provided. They trimmed my oak trees as well as mulch and planted flowers in my flower bed. They are very responsive. Jay was really awesome. They are also affordable. You would not be disappointed if you go with them. They ensure the job is to your liking and will ensure it gets done the way you wanted. Will definitely use them for my future landscaping needs.

Beside the work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value , punctuality, Design Scape by Robert Draper is an honest man. Robert kept me inform send me lots of photos and went step by step of the progress he was making to my pond. In addition Robert found that the pump was not working and he was able to get a new Hudson Fill valve pump at no cost to me by exchanging the old pump with warranty. I would strongly recommend Design Scape by Robert Draper to anyone who is interest in getting a beautiful pond, and maintenance. Thank you again Robert!!!

The Tampa Landscapes team is absolutely THE BEST! Creative, courteous, efficient, attentive to unique needs and details. I had a very complicated, long-standing drainage issue. Not only did Jimmy solve the problems others had not been able to, he also came up with a lovely landscape design for a difficult area, installed on budget and on time. I am happy to provide excellent references for this wonderful company.

We first contacted Paramount Landscaping in Nov 2016, and arranged for Nathan to come to the propriety we wanted to refresh. He provided us with a detailed landscape plan that addressed all our issues. He listened to our likes and wants and intuitively planned an extensive(for us) yard makeover. We have decided to proceed in two phases. Nathan and his hard working crew took two days to transform our raggedy, unappealing front yard into a showplace! Thanks Paramount!

I was beyond thrilled with Suncoast Landscaping. From the first meeting with Nicole to the completion of the project, every step of the way was completed in a professional, knowledgeable and meticulous way. Nicole came out to measure the area to be landscaped, to find out what I had in mind and to give me suggestions on what plants would work. By the next day I had a schematic of the area complete with plant placement and pictures of the suggested plants. She worked with me to make slight changes in an attempt to fit my budget. Steven and Cameron were perfectionists. They took great care in preparing the area, laying down the dirt and digging the holes for all the plants. They worked with me on rearranging some plants. Once the plants were in the ground they added the pine bark. They worked their magic and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Suncoast Landscaping to anyone who wants a job well done. I have already hired them again for additional work.

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.

Very Professional and Timely. Quote came in lowest of all 3 quoted. I ultimately ended up going with another company, only due to the relationship I built with the other company. I would highly recommend giving them the opportunity. They were able to explain everything for me to understand.

Josh was very professional, punctual and did a great job in trimming and cleaning up trees, removing debris and going above and beyond. I will definitely be using him in the future. As you can see, the trees and patio were quite the mess. The area and fence is all cleaned up. Heck, I didn't even know I had a BBQ Grill under all that mess. I've tipped the table to remove it. Hope you can view photos and see what a great job. Josh cut and hauled off all debris and there was a lot. Thanks, Josh!

This crew installed my sod and a landscape. I’m in love with it. Shane is young so I was weary of hiring him at first. But he knows what he’s doing. It’s worth the call

They did exactly what they said they would, and more. Awesome experience, not the type of customer service I expected from a landscape company. Re-landscaped my front yard and it looks better than I expected it to, I have recommended their services to many.

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.
