He did a great job and was available same day! He was very friendly and professional, will definitely hire him again. My only negative is that I feel like $100 was a little too high but he offered to do my backyard for $80 which is double the size of my front.

Recently had a patio installed with pavers in our backyard. Marisol and the family was able to accomodate my schedule and budget. They did a really good job with the patio. Would hire them for other services.

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.

My husband and I can't say enough wonderful things about the awesome service provided by Aaron and his team at Leafy Lawns. They were prompt, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Upon our first encounter, Aaron came to our home and walked our backyard with us. He was able to point out some solutions right a way. He made the process of taking our back yard from a barren desert to a thriving, beautiful outdoor space. He and his team also rid our front yard of an unsightly juniper bush, removed trees and pruned our Japanese Maple. My husband and I had a goal for our backyard, a place for our young children to run and play in a grassy backyard. Aaron came up with the perfect plan and executed it perfectly. We highly recommend Leafy Lawns for all of your outdoor needs!

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.

These guys did a great job. They worked hard to remove and haul away all the leaves completely out of my backyard and there were surely a lot ! Because they were unable to see into our pool (cloudy), they returned a week later and were able to complete the job by "fishing" out all the dead leaves. I would definetly 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.

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.
