Firefly Landscape Contractors completely renovated my 5,000 gallon Koi pond, including a UV light filtering system. They installed new pond lights, repaired and installed new landscape lighting and new plants in the garden around the pond. Pablo and his crew also installed leaf guards, located, cleaned out, or replaced as needed rainwater drainage pipes that had been lost track of over the years and were not draining properly. They provided a full range of landscape and pond maintenance services in a timely and professional manner. We have been very pleased with their services.

Mary Alice from Avant Gardens did an amazing job transforming my sand pit of a yard into a beautiful tropical paradise! She managed to come up with a creative array of plants that are not only drought tolerant and salt tolerant, but also very colorful, too. Not an easy task! This was several years ago, and my yard, thanks to her expertise, just gets prettier as my gardens mature. I highly recommend Avant Gardens Landscape Design!

        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.
