Joe and his team were awesome to work with and very customer friendly! Flawless Landscaping sounds specific to grass, plants but what they did was transform my entire yard. Even neighbors said it looks like Yard Crashers was at your house! We surely will enjoy our backyard paradise this summer:)

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.

Joseph came out to our house on time and did a fantastic job, especially for the first time out! He called and let us know he couldn't get through our gate to the backyard and even used our push mower so he could complete the job! Highly recommend Blades of Green!!!

Justin dug up several shrubs and plants that I didn't want in my garden, planted some croton petras, a Pygmy date palm and some Hawaiian Ti plants for me. He was friendly, professional and took time to patiently answer all of my questions. Will definitely have him back for phase 2 of my garden make-over. :)

They first were responsible for grading my backyard, making sure it was even and that the natural water flow was suffice for flood prevention. Secondly, they brought in 2 pallets of sod and laid it all down effectively and efficiently. Very happy with the professional attitude and courtesy this company provided. The guys are honest and hard working and the work is quality. I would recommend them to anyone.

You will not be disappointed! Great service and more importantly great people to work with. We had our backyard transferred with palm hedges, some fruit trees and other plants. also added an herb garden. Every step of the way Robert helped us pick the best products and even tried to save us money along the way! You can't be honest work and a great product at the end. Everything has worked out great and we couldn't be happier.

Nate and his crew were utmost professional. From the timeliness of his response to give a quote , the design presentation to the installation, I have nothing but great things to say. What went from the need to create privacy from new construction behind our home to a complete transformation of my backyard. We're so impressed with Paramount's work, we're looking into another project with them. We found our new landscaping company for jobs in the future.

We had not had a patio in our yard for several years. I was both anxious and leary of the different options and contractors. We had several quotes but felt most comfortable with Dennis. On the first visit, he took pictures of out backyard and we talked about budget and what we wanted/needed. He returned with his computer and different layouts of what out patio could look like. Once we decided, he gave us a start date, weather permitting. Dennis was great with communicating and very easy to work with. My patio was started on a Wednesday and finished on Sunday. We decided on a stamped concrete patio. See picture. Don't hesitate to call them!

Stan has done more than my original project I set out on thumbtack. He is honest, fair and reasonably priced. He started with minor plumbing then removing my backsplash and counters. Then putting up new drywall where my backsplash was and replacing it. I will hire him next to build a 15'x14' composite deck in my backyard bar area.

Juan and his family did a wonderful job beautifying my front and back yards. Juan worked with us on the design and adjusted it until we were happy. He went out of his way to find the best plants for what we were trying to achieve at the best price. Installation was professional and well done. The fact that they are a family operation and will take care of the planting’s for the first month to be sure all is well is very reassuring. I highly recommend Magnolia Landscaping if you are looking for a dedicated group of people who are passionate about giving you what you would like to beautify your landscape!

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.

We had an amazing experience with these guys! They can right out the same day to give a fair and honest estimate then came next day to start work. They were quick but detailed and the work was quality. Our backyard looks fantastic and I will make sure to tell everyone who it was that did the work. I can actually sit out back and enjoy our yard now.

We had a side yard that was pretty much void of grass. Garrett and his crew provided prompt service and installed new sod. He was very professionally and knowledgeable about all grasses here in Florida and we feel we made the right choice with his expertise. They did a great job and we would definitely use him again for all lawn and landscape needs.

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.
