I don’t normally write reviews, but Salgado's Landscape was so great I felt that I had to do something to show my appreciation. This is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with and I’m going to recommend them to everyone that needs landscaping. They were extremely professional, patient, and helpful through our whole experience. Their customer service was extraordinary from Jorge and his Daughter Esbeydy, all the way through everyone that worked at our house. They were all incredibly polite and helpful every step of the way. If you want an honest estimate and authentic work, this is the company for you. They stuck to the budget and schedule from the estimate even when we made some changes to the original plan while they were working. After making our initial landscaping plans with Jorge I had to deploy and leave my wife to deal with all the landscaping at our new construction house, which I was worried about, but as it turned out I didn’t need to be. Every step of the way they explained everything they were doing and fixed every problem, big and little, that came up. They even worked directly with our home builder to correct problems with the drainage pipes the builder had put in and helped us fix an approval issue with our HOA. Every time I talked to my wife back at home she told me how great Salgado's Landscape was, how helpful everyone was that was working at our home, and how good the yard looked. They made our yard look even better than I had hoped for and when they were done, they cleaned up everything and even painted our fence and touched up our stucco, leaving the house better than it was when they started. Even if another company gives you a lower estimate, pay the extra money because I guarantee you that it is worth it! Jorge, if you read this, thank you so much and please thank the site supervisor too, he was unbelievable. I’m so glad we decided to use these honest, hardworking, professionals.

I am so happy with the landscape design and installion by Kyle and his team. The project could not have been smoother. Kyle presented a bid and design plan which was agreed on and that is exactly what was delivered on the day scheduled. I asked for a couple of changes to the plant material which was taken care of and did not affect the installation date at all. I was impressed with how quickly the project was completed, because I had anticipated weather issues. Would definitely recommend Kyle to my friends and plan to call on them again in the Fall.

Roberto did a great job on a really hot day. He took the plants I bought and planted them, put down the landscape mesh and spread the mulch. He knows about the plants and advised me how to take care of them for the next couple weeks.

I loved the fact they were 2 hardworking college entrepreneurs. They were professional, on time, communicative and eager to please. Their cost was the best out there. They also perform other jobs such as moving and landscaping. I would recommend them to all out there and would not hesitate to call upon them again.

These guys are the hardest working landscapers I’ve employed. They know what they’re doing, they don’t rush things and they do a very good job. So far they have completed the Spring cleanup, edges about 1/2 acre of trees and flowerbeds, as well as deliver & install some high quality mulch.

Pedroza's Landscaping is fantastic. Within a couple hours of our request for service, Pedroza's arrived and did an excellent job of mowing and trimming our lawn. We were so impressed that we asked that day for a quote for spring clean-up and landscaping. Jose gave us a quote that day and completed the job the next week. The result: our lawn and landscaping are beautiful! All weeds were cleared, bushes and trees trimmed, lawn mowed, and mulch laid. We recommend Pedroza's and will definitely be using their services again!

My experience at the very beginning with Pro was very professional!!! I was looking for someone who knew how to installed low voltage landscape lights, to go around my entire house and to install a low voltage light post for my front yard. Pro responded to my Thumbtack request with the kindness words... "I would love to help you with your request". So I made an appointment, he came out very prepared to show me various lights to choose from and a layout for ideas. He also shared information of where I can go to see others, and during the wait process I will text him to ask what he thought about certain brand of lights and transformers, I truly loved his knowledge and experience. Pro and his team came out to installed the lights and also I hired him to clean up last season of debri, with fresh edgeing and new mulch, him and his team did an awesome job with Everything! I am a very happy and satisfy customer, Pro's work exceeding my expectation and he truly brought my vision to life and I would recommend him to anyone. Also my neighbor told me my house looks light a model home and now Pro may be working with him. Hire Pro for any landscape work and you would not be disappointed!😍

We took a chance and used Thumbtack to identify a business to help with our yard work. It was a great decision. Mr. Mendoza of Yuritzy contacted us minutes after we submitted the request although it was late Sunday evening, and came out the next day as scheduled to survey our property and prepare an estimate. He was professional and offered options and ideas for landscape, plants, shrubs, etc. We received a written estimate/contract a few days later outlining in detail the work to be done. This past Saturday (5/5) the initial work began and we couldn't be more pleased. We look forward to working with Yuritzy this year and in years to come. We are expecting more of the great service

Mario and his team were amazing. They responded quickly to this post, came out promptly for a quote and then were able to immediately do the work. The sprinkler system works perfectly now. They installed a Rachio system (which is recommended by Wirecutter) - it's very cool - works on wifi, and is a smart/eco friendly system that integrates the weather/rain into its schedule. Also, they were well below their competitors' prices. We couldn't recommend them more!

These guys were amazing. The work they did was top notch and much more affordable than other companies on Thumbtack. Our backyard beds were an absolute disaster. We gave them our vision and they made it happen...and they went above and beyond by doing some extra work they thought would look good. We are extremely pleased with our final product and would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to do some landscaping!

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.
