Jessica was very responsive in scheduling a convenient date to pick up the furniture I wanted to get rid of. They were fast and the price was unbeatable! I definitely would use their service again and would recommend them to anyone else trying to get rid of their junk for a very reasonable price! They don't just do junk removal either! They do pressure washing, property clean ups, cleaning services, lawn services, and small tree services! I am very impressed and happy that I hired them.

When we hired Joe for his initial service; we asked a lot from him with our entire lawn. When we returned from errands to find our entire property so well cared for; we were pleasantly surprised and didn't believe we could find a lawn care service that more than delivered on the commitment he made for the quality of his service.

On the day I talked to John on the phone, he came to my house within an hour of talking to him. We walked my very small property and discussed what needed to be done. He told me what he could do for me, gave me some suggestions; we agreed on a price, and I hired him immediately. I liked the fact that he is just starting his business, is ambitious, friendly, and flexible. He mowed for the first time on March 1 and did an excellent job. I am very happy with my choice of a professional lawn care service provider and recommend him to anyone.

We were so impressed with Kathy and George’s work. They took our overgrown weed filled yard and transformed it into a beautiful masterpiece in just one day! There are so many good things to say about this pro team so let me start with how she arrived early to the appointment and the following day (unlike so many other contractors we’ve had in the past) so that impressed us right away. Just moving here from IL to New Port Richey we were clueless on how to take care of the palm trees and bushes, and what to do to give our home some much needed curb appeal. George was awesome in cutting back the overgrown palms, offering his expertise in plant care, and giving me great suggestions for what flowers and plants to get. Kathy and George worked hard all day pulling out weeds, laying red mulch, and planting the plants and flowers. Everything turned out so beautiful even the neighbors complimented on what a nice job they did! We continue to be so happy and proud of our yard thanks to these friendly, hardworking pros. Kathy is awesome! Don’t hesitate to call her for an appointment!

Jay and his team did a phenomenal job removing a tree from the front lawn. The quality of their work is second to none. In addition, they are professional, flexible, respectful, and very helpful.

Gary mowed the lawn and edged around our property. Our home backs up to a lake so it requires special care. Gary had no problem handling that and the lawn looks great. He was right on time, unobtrusive, and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend him for any and all lawn and yard care needs. Thanks, Gary!

We needed palm trees trimmed, viburnums along the front of property, and very overgrown viburnums in the back. I contacted T.L.C.Towles Lawn Care on Wednesday afternoon and explained I needed this done ASAP (having pictures for home sale) and he was there Friday morning ready to go. He was courteous, he did a very good job, the clean up afterward was great and all at a very reasonable price. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend T.L.C.Towles Lawn Care for your outdoor cleanup projects.

Daniel kept us informed at all times. He was great at returning messages & follow up. Very responsive & professional. He and his crew did our front lawn which was in bad shape. They had to remove old sod, put in topsoil & then new sod, as well as replace & repair several sprinklers. He also educated me on how to take care of the new sod installation. Very happy with this company

I was ready to just pull everything up and put down shell or stone, I was so upset over many years going through different lawn management companies. My yard looked terrible, plants were suffering and the other companies would literally cut, blow and go cutting my grass down to dirt. John came in and rescued everything giving me several options. The value of my home has risen with landscaping and lawn care and I love my yard again. He is extremely knowledgeable in lawn and plant care for this region. He works with his crew, listens to what you want and explains what will work and what won't so you don't spend money foolishly. He has a strong morale work ethic. I am extremely happy and highly recommend him. Kris

Monthly mowing service is done well, professional crew, accepting credit cards is also a plus. Points of improvement- day of the week consistency would be a plus, but not a big deal.

Jose and crew were fantastic. The yard needed the leaves removed before they could mow. They sent us a quote, which we accepted, and they got to work. The yard looks amazing; they even took extra care to clean up our mulched areas! Great job!

"I am very satisfied. You don't always get everything, but usually by the time I notice you have missed something you get it the next time. You are a bit pricey, but of the three companies that I have hired for my lawn care since I have lived at my house you are by far the best."

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
