Alex and his team did an amazing job on removing a ton of junipers on a steep hill in my backyard. Very fair price and very professional, we will be using his company again with other landscape projects. Highly recommended.

Mr.Preze and his men installed a 10 zone irrigation system at our home. He and his team exceeded our expectations. They not only installed a quality product,they did it at a fair price,IN a timely manner. At the same time they were neat and courteous at all times. What we were most impressed with was the time spent to protect and put back the yard and landscape as he completed each zone. At the end of the project he spent the time to walk us through each zone,set up the controller, and showed us how to use it. Preze irrigation brought value to our home.

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.

I have been looking for a good landscaping company to take on my yard for almost 3 years. Every-time there seems to clash between them and my mother. Sometimes they don't do the work properly or over charge us. With Portillo Landscape they did neither. They were polite, understanding, and hard working. Our yard is not an easy feat and yet they were fast & diligent. We even signed-up for every two weeks. Which is saying something since my mother never agrees to that but she finally found a company she likes and is agreeable. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone.

Working with Leafy Lawns was a pleasure! Aaron is very friendly, explains everything well (to a landscape iliterate), his price was very competitive and he checked up on us/the lawn for several days afterwards. Our front lawn has been an eyesore for years so I can't even believe the lawn I see now is ours. We had about 2000sq ft of weeds, dirt, old Bermuda and mulch that Aaron removed, then tilled, and leveled. He installed about 3.5 pallets Zoysia Zenith from SuperSod nearby. By the second day, it was already starting to turn green! Our lot has a considerable hill, so with excess sod, Aaron laid grass on the 6x6 timber steps we have, so now they too are attractive and not 100% mud. In addition to this, he planted and mulched azaleas at my mailbox to tie it all together and dropped off a new sprinkler! Aaron is a genuinely nice man. He made it easy with our work schedules to schedule an estimate and the work ASAP, but most importantly he was upfront about details and when they encountered an unexpected increase in materials, he did not add to his quote. The attention and concern he gives to each job, no matter the size, is why he is so successful. Following our sod installation, part of Aaron's crew came back for a total yard clean up...killing weeds, hauling leaves and laying pine straw. They work hard and it shows. This is the first time in 5 years my husband and I have stood in the driveway and been proud of our front yard! Thank you Leafy Lawns!

I would like to say this was my first time using Thumtack. I was very surprised by the promptness and skillful delivery of the work provided by GENESIS HARDSCAPING AND LANDSCAPE. They came early left late throughout the project to complete it ahead of schedule. And when completed what i expected was surpassed by knowledge they brought o make the project even better than I imagined. There skill set isn't just landscaping but everything in between. My last contractors left a mess in my backyard, he came in recommended fixes in areas i thought he did not cover. he was a joy and very respectful to my Wife. It was a joy to have him work for me and i will continue to with him. I encourage anyone to please let him come and see what you need and you will be pleased by the results.

Extremely happy with my experience! Michael is a pleasure to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. Michael came out to my house prior to beginning work so he could get a feel for the land, amount of light we were working with, and my vision for a natural, woodland landscape. He was very supportive of my goals and helped me make decisions for installing native species that would support wildlife, evergreens, and plants that would thrive in the shade (often a challenge). His eye for plants, placement and design is excellent and we are already making plans for additional plants and hardscaping.

Working with Landscape Legends was a pleasure and concluded with an excellent upgrade to my landscape. Lamont was able to come by immediately after I submitted the request. Not only did he listen to why I wanted to do the project and provide expert advice on several options, he also spent time looking at some of my DIY yard projects and advising on how I could have given those projects a professional touch. He gave me this advice without charge. The project we embarked on was completed quickly and with quality. I look forward to working with Landscape Legends in the future.

James did an amazing job of my mess of a lawn!! We weren’t able to keep up with the volume of leaves that kept falling and James happily came to the rescue. In one day, he managed to clear both our front and back yards leaving it looking clean and inviting! His price was hard to beat and his quick response time is something almost unheard of in the landscape business. I HIGHLY recommend James to conquer any degree of care your yard may need!

I inquired about pricing due to the snowstorm that knocked trees into my yard. I had a few estimates before Pro Landscaping arrived but Wyatt Chavez was great to work with and reasonably priced. His team was prompt and efficient. I highly recommend using their services. They made the job quick and easy and I'm thankful for their help. Great job.

Jose did a great job. We used him to clean up our landscaping which had become extremely over grown with weeds. All the big landscapping companies wanted to charge an arm and a leg for basic cleanup. No thanks. Jose and I negotiated and landed on a fair price for the job that needed to get done. I plan to use his services again in the future.

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.
