I've used Burrlocke outdoor solutions for several landscaping projects, including mulch beds surrounding my property, window wells, rerunning drain tile around the house so that I would no longer be getting water in my basement. They have been very professional, and I appreciate the speed at which they work and the quality that they provide to me. I would give them five stars and plan to use them as many times in the future as I need them

I have used S.J. Shepherd trucking and excavation several times now, they have been the best priced option for my relatively small home projects. One of the projects consisted of removing and hauling away a large piece of concrete that had been buried in the yard by a previous homeowner, these guys got it out, loaded, and leveled the ground to the point youd never know that they removed a 2'x6'x8' piece of concrete foundation. On a separate occasion he came out to dig up a leaking water line, again far more cost effective than the other quotes, came out on time, was prepared and got the job done in far less time than i had expected. Last weekend i had him haul several loads of mulch and compost, again he did a great job, cheaper than i had paid in the past for this and with his smaller equipment he was able to get it much closer to my beds without wrecking my lawn. Cant say enough about SJ Shepherd, always on time, always prepared and always goes above an beyond even cleaning up the area before he leaves the job site. If you have residential or small farm projects this guy should be in your phone for sure.

I found Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscapes Inc on Thumbtack - I was contacted right away once I put in my request and Brad came out the next day to perform an evaluation of our needs and submitted a bid. We accepted and the work was done just as we had asked them to do within a week. We are very pleased with the service and all their guys were very friendly. We are going to use them again for the next big yard project.

I contacted Barefoot Living Spaces and they came out quickly for a free estimate and then promptly got back with a very reasonable quote. They were able to come out sooner than expected due to rain and in one day they took care of a ton of dead shrubs, trees and weeds that needed cleaned up. My yard is fantastic now. I was very happy and impressed with their work and definitely will use them again. Thank you!!!

We had two retaining walls worked on. One was rebuilt with new stone and the other was repaired in sections that had shifted. They made sure to provide for drainage behind the wall as that was nonexistent on the original. Work was professional. quick and reasonably priced.

John contacted me quickly and scheduled a time to meet that same day. He mowed our lawn, which had not been cut for nearly a month, and went over it twice so that we were not left with hay rows. When finished, he explained what he had done, and what he planned for future service. He charged a fair price and discussed with me other services in which I might be interested. (However, he was not at all pushy or salesman-like, just very helpful)

    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.
