After a bit of bad luck with people that we “knew”, my husband and I began calling landscape companies from the internet. We met with about 5, and as soon as we met with Austin, we felt we would be in great hands. (So, let our experience save you the trouble, and go straight to Overstreet Lawn Care.) Austin and his crew gave us a beautiful new backyard. He was very upfront about some not so fun digging that needed to be done, and we are very happy with that outcome. Had great ideas and insight along the way. And the crew was professional and hard working. We feel in great hands with Overstreet Lawn Care’s knowledge and expertise......so much so that we hired them for lawn maintenance, and that crew is also awesome. We also have plans to work with Overstreet Lawn Care for installation work in our front yard this Spring.

What a difference! Our backyard was simply overgrowth and mud. We now have a beautiful privacy fence and lush, green yard. This team worked through rain and heat to get the job done. And, they kept things within our budget. We appreciate the hard work and effort it took to make this happen! I would definitely recommend them.

Aaron and his team were very professional. Aaron handled the dumpster and sod delivery and had everything prepped to go on time for our scheduled date. The team transformed our horrific jungle into a manageable and beautiful backyard. He even touched up around the front with leftover sod! The before and after pictures speak for themselves

I hired D&R to address the weeds and tall grass in my backyard prior to a move out inspection. Devontae listened to my concerns, and gave me a fair price, breaking down the cost of each task, and giving me the "bundled" price as well. I was not present on the property when Dee arrived, but he sent me before and after pictures, and the yard looks great!.

We hired Omar for a complete clean up and mulch of our backyard and could not be happier with our experience. He offered fair pricing compared to other competitors and completed the job very quickly. The yard looks 100x better than it did before he came. I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone to help with their yard. Bonus - He also offers maintenance, which is well worth considering.

I can’t say enough positive things about Elomore’s Masonry. Definitely earned the three P’s w/ ease; Punctual, Professional & Polite. Not to mention, their work is spot on, with excessive knowledge of quality brickwork techniques & no-nonsense solutions for your specific needs. Jason Elmore is a prince. He showed up on time, & was able to make sensible suggestions for our project which even involved removing & reusing existing bricks so that design aesthetic could be maintained. If quality masonry work is what your after, look no further. This company is nothing short of exceptional. Great experience & highly recommend!!!

Terry and his crew installed zoysia sod in my backyard to replace the builder-grade fescue that wouldn't grow because it didn't get enough sun. He was easy to work with and kept us informed throughout the process. We had a small issue but Terry took care of it quickly and professionally. The sod is starting to green up and looks great!

We recently moved into a new renovation in Belvedere park and needed a lot of work done in the front and backyards. Both areas had trash and invasive vines embedded in the ground, and the backyard was almost completely bereft of grass. In addition, the soil was hard and rocky. Lamont, owner of Landscape Legends, responded very quickly to our inquiry on Thumbtack and sent us a message. When we wanted to set up an appointment for an evaluation, he came the next day, was prompt, and very personable. That night he gave a line item quote of what it would cost to sod the front and back, the labor, put down mulch, and remove trash and vines. Other companies were slower getting out to our house for an evaluation, and even more important, some did not even send a quote after saying that they would. Lamont was always prompt with his replies and the cost that he projected was less expensive than virtually everyone else. When we decided to go with him, he began almost immediately and did the majority of the work on a weekend himself along with a two man crew. He provided helpful guidance on watering and had no problem clearing out embedded trash and other nuissances. Landscape Legends is professional, yet low key, which is the best combination. I would highly recommend them!

I don’t even know where to start. This was the best experience I have ever had with an outdoor company. We have lived in this house for 19 years and everyone that pulls up in the driveway has always overcharged me for everything and then under delivered. James was quick to respond, timely (even though he had a death of his close friend) and charged me 1000’s yes, no typo, 1000’s of dollars less than I was previously quoted to do the same exact thing, which was putting in a drain and re-sodding the entire back yard and he was pleasant and nice the entire process. And it is absolutely gorgeous. I highly, highly recommend him. I can’t even say enough good things about him.

The job isn’t done yet; but, this young man is very impressive! He knows his craft, has a great crew who he meticulously supervises, has thus far delivered what he has promised, and his friendly, professional demeanor makes working with him great! I highly recommend Hayden and his company! We will continue to use him after our front and backyard makeover!!

Jay had great ideas with the shape of the area and has an excellent eye for planting’s- tough to find these days. Overall the project turned out excellent. We are absolutely pleased with the work and will refer him in the future. Friendly, showed up on time, honest & great work.

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.
