Adrian was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I had a lot of questions regarding a landscaping design and the installation of my garden. Adrian responded quickly and was very patient with me. I appreciated that. Adrian came to my home and provided me with an affordable quote and also provided me with some wonderful suggestions. 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!!

We had 4 different companies bid on a multi-house drainage/landscape issue. We looked at two well known landscaping companies in the Atlanta area and we ended up using Thumbtack to search for other options. This his how we came into contact with Overstreet Lawn Care. We ended up selecting Overstreet Lawn Care because of the professionalism, follow-through, and attentiveness of Austin Overstreet, the owner. Austin not only ended up doing a 4 house drainage project, but in the process, he also ended up doing another neighbor's drainage project as well. Austin was very fair and honest with his proposals. He took the necessary time to identify the root cause of the drainage issues we were all experiencing. While Overstreet may not be the size of companies such as Twin Branch or Pikes (two companies we also considered for the project), the services and quality of work provided far exceeded mine and my neighbor's expectations. Austin is hands on with his team. The team was respectful of our property, time, and all of them spoke English! While no one ever looks forward to major drainage repairs due to poor builder installations of a new property, Overstreet Lawn Care made the experience much more tolerable than anticipated. As for work done, Overstreet fixed drainage issues, installed water collections boxes, redirected water, repaired current water collection boxes, properly grated the land, installed sod, and installed Pinestraw. I would trust Austin and his team with any of my landscape projects! As far as I'm concerned, Overstreet Lawn Care is now my landscaper. (Don't let the name fool you...they do more than just mow yards!) If I could give 6 stars, I would!

I originally had Eddie out to quote me on refreshing an overgrown planting bed and fixing clogged underground drain lines. Eddie did a fantastic job designing the planting bed without breaking the bank. His original quote was very reasonable which allowed us the flexibility to make changes on the fly, including adding a sprinkler system to the planting bed. He was easy to work with and very responsive, even answering texts about the design on weekends and at night. Regarding the clogged underground drain lines, Eddie saved me upwards of $1000 compared to other quotes. Eddie identified where the pipe was clogged which turned into a very easy and cheap diy afternoon project. I will hire Eddie again.

Where to start! I feel like we've gained an outdoor landscaping partner for the long haul. We had a huge tree fall in our yard from our neighbors house this spring. (we live close to Virginia Highlands) It destroyed the front yard. We were looking to re-do the front flower beds anyway and then realized after this we needed an entirely new lawn. We got multiple quotes for a full sod restoration. (changed from fescue to Zoysia) Working with Nelson and his entire team at Legacy Outdoor Living was an absolute pleasure! It's rare to find a company that communicates well from start to finish in the landscaping business. Outdoor stuff does not always go as planned but Nelson did a good job being in constant contact as we dealt with the natural ebbs and flows of the calendar due to weather, etc. Nelson spent a lot of time with us on the front end of the project discussing vision, time frame, expectations, etc. He was quick on his quote turnaround and was sensitive to all of our requests, including budget. (Legacy is very reasonable and we feel were the best value out of all the quotes we got) - plus you get what you pay for and these guys are well worth it! We had them take out all the existing destroyed fescue, replace with Zoysia and also take out all of our old and dying trees, shrubs and plants in our plant beds lining the house. The new yard and plant beds look exceptional! One thing Nelson will really try to work hard on, is helping you build out a yard that looks great, but is also manageable for a person without a "green" thumb- My wife and I are now excited about taking care of our new lawn as opposed to being intimidated by all the previous work needed to tend to an "over planted" front yard. (prior owner's doing) We cannot wait to use Legacy later this year on the back yard project! Nacho is awesome as well! Great to work with! Sincerely, HK A happy "in-town" Atlanta customer!

Marco Bolanos was quick to respond to my request for an onsite inspection and quote for sod installation. I mention this because so many other landscaping companies took days and weeks to respond to my request. I was provided a competitive quote for the sod installation which was detailed with a complete breakdown of cost. Out of several quotes I selected Marco not because he was cheaper than the competition but due to his knowledge and experience in the industry. He was one of the few who provided very specific recommendations on which sod to install and the required method of installation. I recommend Marco Bolanos landscaping services as he purchases high grade sod and provides a six month guarantee on his installation. My sod was installed with his personal oversight and done professionally.

Vary satisfied. They left the lawn looking neat and clean. All the debris was cleared after mowing and the lines were very straight. I like how efficiently the crew works together. I will be using these guys from here on out. Looking forward to having them install some new plantings this fall. I'm sure that will be a quality job as well.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
