El Maguey landscaping co. gave superior service to our yard. The weeding removal job he did was superb! I look forward to working with him in the near future on additional landscraping jobs. My family's experience with the service done was great. My husband wants to continue using Adrian to do more landscraping jobs. My husband also wanted to add that the El Maguey landscaping co. did a good job and he gave a reasonable price for the work done.

Juan showed up early and worked overtime, even coming back the next morning to fill in some Mulch he had run out of. My yard looks outstanding. He mowed, edged, cleaned up tons of leaves and sticks, mulched several beds, pruned all the shrubs and cleaned out my little pond! I would recommend his services. My yard is now clean, neat and beautiful. Thank you Juan!

I live on 1.75 acres. My lawn sprawls front, back and to the left side of my house. My entire lawn was a mess. There was yard debris and leaves of all types. To put it in perspective, my yard can generate up to 40 bags of leaves easily. But Nspire got me hooked up in a short amount of time and he did such a great job, we've all ready discussed him returning in the fall.

Michael was able to come out on short notice. I appreciated the advanced communication letting me know how long it would be before he arrived. He did a wonderful job on the lawn. He even provided some tips and information about some of the plants on the property. I would hire him again and absolutely recommend his services to anyone looking for some yard work done.

Wow. Just moved in town to a house that had a yard that had not been loved in a while. We had a huge project to clean-up and this team never one second-guessed taking it on. Stayed in touch through the entire process, took longer than it needed but they never complained. The pricing was more than fair. And now I have a beautiful yard for them to maintain weekly. Kudos!

I thought I’d have to pay a lot to keep up the maintenance but the prices are very affordable and I’m just in love with how my home is turning out! Thank you again for the amazing job!

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
