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. :)

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!!!

Andrew gave us a very clear estimate and completed all the work as he said he would. Very professional and kept to all his appointments. His assistant Dustin was very pleasant and a hard worker. Could not be more pleased with the results. We have decided to have him for regularly scheduled maintenance to keep the garden looking beautiful.

Working with Mike from Terra Nova Outdoor Living was an unexpected amazing experience. He is very knowledgeable about landscaping and can exactly recreate the vision one has. Not only does he use modern 3D computer technology that gives you the first visual gimps of your new outdoor space but he puts all pieces together that in the end this stunning garden, pond and recreational area comes into existence that one only could dream of before working with Terra Nova Outdoor Living.

    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.
