We had a 125 foot tree that had been hit by lightning. Jon-Erik and his crew performed the work as we requested and on time. They were very accommodating to both us and the city who became involved due to traffic around in the area of the tree. We would definitely use ArbSmart Total Tree Care again.

17 yrs ago, I bought a Japanese Maple and it was the first tree I planted in Ga after moving here from N.Y. This tree was the highlight of my garden. Now we are moving into a bigger home and I wanted to bring the tree with us. After several companies turning me down and putting me off, we found Aaron Martell of Leafy Lawns on Thumbtack and he responded back within an hour. He gave me a quote that was in my price range and we agreed to a day and time. Aaron and his helper Monty showed up and started working on the tree. Monty ended up on his hands and knees trying to gently remove the root ball for hours.He took great care to protect as much of the root ball as possible. The job was harder than we all expected. After several hours, the tree was removed and gently placed in the back of Aaron's truck. They transplanted the tree here at our new home. Now it will be the high light of my new garden. We want to thank Aaron and Monty for all of their hard work. We highly recommend Leafy Lawns and we're Extremely Happy Debbie and Ed B.

Omar was THE BEST!!! He came out to me discuss a bad drainage issue and new sod installation and removal of bushes. He even came back a second time at my request to go back over everything w my SO. His pricing was fair and he was on time and very knowledgeable. He answered all our questions and included me in choices he was making as the Work was progressing instead of assuming how I’d like something. He didn’t take short cuts and was meticulous in his work. It was the first company in a long time I hired for anything hat I didn’t feel like I need to supervise their work. He installed a drainage system, timber retaining wall, new sod and mulch for us. He also removed many bushes, relocated some sprinkler heads and transplanted trees. Everything was done w great care and no shortcuts. You would be making a HUGE mistake to hire anyone else!!! Our neighbor put in new sod the month before and was so upset when she compared her lawn to ours. Her lawn was thrown down w lots of gaps and ours looked like a piece of carpet!!! Omar also made sure to get us very high quality Zosia. Omar is awesome and I fully recommend his company and service! We can’t wait to use our new yard!!!

I had an excellent experience with Cal Scapes and I am so glad that I hired them to do my yards today! The owner was on time, professional, listened very carefully to what I wanted done, was able to answer several questions that I had about trees and he had a great deal of knowledge about different flowers, plants, bushes and trees. I was very impressed with his knowledge in overall horticulture and landscaping. My yards look absolutely beautiful and I will definitely be hiring Cal Scapes to do more work in the near future! GREAT JOB!

Anthony and his team were awesome!! We hired them to clear the back part of our yard that was full of over large 100 rocks and debris/trash, plus overgrown shrubs and a dying tree. It was a lot of stuff to clear and his team was able to do it in 2 days. They even raked and replanted some of our other trees. His prices were fair and adjustable to what our budget was. Would recommend his services.

I just had my second landscaping project completed by Genesis. The first project was in December 2015 and involved removing underbrush and small trees around the perimeter of my yard for installation of a privacy fence. I was so satisfied with their work I hired them to come back to clear out the rest of the underbrush in my backyard and to cut some tree limbs that had grown over into my neighbor’s yard. I also had them install sod and remove shrubs in the front yard and plant a couple of vines next to an arbor. It was a lot of work since I have a big yard and they completed the project in 2 days. They did an excellent job of cleaning up afterwards and the chief landscaper, Marcos, was awesome. Before starting work on the project he did a walkthrough with me to make sure he knew exactly how I wanted things to look. We did another walkthrough afterwards and I could not have been happier with their work. I can actually walk around my backyard now without tripping over underbrush and I appreciated how his crew did not damage or remove any of the vegetation I liked and wanted left alone. The only word of caution when it comes to hiring a small landscaping company is that it’s important to allow for some flexibility when it comes to scheduling. My project was delayed because of bad weather which led to them falling behind schedule with a couple of their other clients. That did not bother me because I was not in a rush to get the job done, but not everyone is as flexible as I am. The important thing for me was that the job got done right the first time and Genesis did just that. We are already discussing our next landscaping project and I will definitely be using their services again. Thanks for the great job!

These guys are amazing. I had a very large tree that was a danger, close to homes and very close to the road. They took it down with no issue. Cleaned the yard up before they left, put my fence back together (had to take it down so they could use the bobcat) Amazing does not describe them enough. I will use their service again if I need any tree work.

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!

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.
