Adrian arrived on time to our service appointment and completed our project quickly and efficiently. I was very pleased with the outcome. Because he did such an amazing job we also hired him for the landscaping services of our business. Thanks again Adrian!!

Lawn care service was performed on 5/30/15 by Andre Bias and his team. Mr. Bias and his team arrived within the timeframe promised and worked diligently to ensure the lawn was completed to my satisfaction. I found Mr. Bias and his team to be very courteous and professional at all times. Mr. Bias was open to any critiquing needed, for which I feel confident will be taken care of, and therefore plan to utilize the lawn care service of him and his team again. I would recommend the Quality Care Lawn Services of Mr. Bias to others.

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.

Scott responded to our request almost immediately. He stopped by the house and met with my husband to review the service we requested (lawn maintenance and fertilization). He was very knowledgeable. We are scheduled every other Friday. So far he has done an excellent job. He is very efficient and gets the job done. Since this is a newly sodded lawn, I will update as the season goes on.

We had a great experience with the Hershey company. He was on time and got everything done super fast and it looks great. We will be using him this season for all our outdoor lawn/garden needs. He is very reasonable on pricing and has a great positive attitude and demeanor. I would highly suggest this company for somebody who is looking for a good lawn care company that doesn’t want you to sign a contract and charge you $200+ a month.

Admittedly, I don't do a great job keeping up with lawn care maintenance, so I was a bit nervous about calling someone to handle it for me. I was worried about high prices and even higher judgement lol. Safari Landscaping was a Godsend! They definitely "tamed" my overgrown yard at a reasonable price, with quality work, and attention to detail. Mark was patient, knowledgable, on time, and quick to respond to my requests. I don't have to worry about my lawn becoming overgrown again, because I'll be calling on Safari Landscaping regularly! Don't miss out on this gem of a company!!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
