Matthew and Teddy were super-kind and responsive to all my questions. They worked with me on a few invoices edits before we agreed upon every job to be perforned on site. All the landscaping work was performed within the time period specified (2 days) and looks amazing. My husband and I are truly happy with everything One-of-a-kind Landscaping did for our front and backyard, which included a lot a work with tall trees/palms/1 oak, crepe myrtles, and remulnching. We would definitely hire One-of-kind Landscaping for any future landscaping needs.

This service was extremely quick and thorough. They cleared out my backyard in the time that I was at work. I left one morning to an awful backyard and returned to an empty haven to enjoy my summer. I'll welcome them back anytime.

We could not be more pleased with the work that was done by G&Y. We had a big project that included demolition of old plants and weeds, new irrigation, new sod, flower beds in the front yard, shrubbery to cover electrical boxes, cable boxes, and the air condition, and a large paved area in our backyard. Everything turned out beautiful! I have included before and after pictures. Robert and his crew were amazing. Robert was very responsive and detailed. Our HOA required an itemized list of all plants and shrubs that were being installed as well as a drawing of the landscaping being done and he was one of the few landscapers we spoke to who was willing to draw something up. As with any big project, we had a few hiccups along the way, including the removal of big tree roots where the paved patio was being laid. Robert was honest and detailed about our options and gave my husband and I time to discuss before proceeding with the project. The front yard now looks fresh and clean and we are enjoying our backyard paved area. Thank you G&Y!

I had a really old rusted broken down riding lawn mover taking up space on my patio slab. Matt got that thing out of my backyard in no time. He responded quickly once I contacted him. I will contact Executive Landscaping again.

If you need some beautiful landscaping done, the place to go is KM Landscaping! They were prompt with their quotes and I found them to be very reasonable. More importantly, they were helpful with plant choices and design. The owner and his crew were hard-working, professional and experienced. It was refreshing to see landscapers take pride in their job! I highly recommend them for any landscaping project. In fact, I plan on hiring them again without reservation.

Earthworms did an excellent job mowing my lawn, including a backyard area that was quite overgrown. They also cut back a bush and tree that needed attention. My only concern was that they failed to show up twice when appointments were scheduled.

I cannot say enough about what hard workers the guys at this lawn service are. They came out the same day, and tackled a huge project at our house. We had just moved in and the lawn was really overgrown, grass up to your waist overgrown in a huge backyard. They showed up on time, and did a beautiful job. We will definitely be using them again in the future. Highly recommend!

    Steve and his team did a super job with our backyard landscape where we did a complete makeover. He had great ideas, kept the project moving along the timeline he set out upfront and we gained a beautiful backyard. This is the second time we have used Kleinscape and we highly recommend this landscape group.

    Overall experience was excellent. We wanted quartz countertops, but didn't want to spend a fortune. L & S had the best prices by a long shot. Their square foot price was close to other contractors, but they didn't have any "additional" fees like everyone else. Stephen came out to give us a quote and was very professional. He also showed up on time....unlike some other contractors. Watching him make the template was an interesting experience, I've always wandered how they do make the templates. We waited 5 days for the countertops to get made and then Stephen returned with another installer and they installed our Mountain Mist Silestone countertops. It took most of the day for them to install everything, but it was well worth it. My wife and I are so happy with our new countertops and we're very happy that we went with L & S for this project. After using contractors in the past, this was by far the best experience we've had.


    I provide services in landscape design, installation, maintenance and consulting. I design water features and retaining wall. I started my business in 2011 after a long career in the landscape industry. I can provide photo documentation of the design and installations that I have had the pleasure of installing.

    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.
