Super friendly and extremely accommodating business owners. Contacted them yesterday and woke up today to a clean driveway and walking paths. We plan on using their services for future snow removal and landscaping. We’ve already put out the word in our community social media board about the awesome experience we have had with this business.

I was truly in a bind last week with a broken lawn mower and an overgrown lawn. Jorge was very responsive to my request was able to complete the job in less than 48 hours. Salgado Landscaping did an outstanding job at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Salgado Landscaping for lawn mowing and landscaping services.

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.

Linda is great! I know nothing about plants and she was so helpful. She assessed my landscape and measured. Soon after she scheduled a time to come back to my home with her ideas of plants to use in a personal board on Pinterest which I thought was great! I didn't have to do any research. Not only is she awesome at what she does she is extremely reasonably priced! I will definitely call her again for more landscaping as well as maintenance.

Gil C Landscaping did a wonderful job on my yard. They did a spring cleanup, bed edging, delivery and spread of top soil and mulch in the beds, aeration, seeding and fertilizing. They cleaned up after the work was completed and their price was very competitive. I will definitely use them again.

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!

I needed a clean up with landscaping for a move out. Quite a bit of work was required including laying of mulch. Price was extremely fair and job done was excellent. I would hire TNT again.

I was very happy about my experience with Gonzalez Landscaping. They are hard working people with excellent work ethics. They showed up on my property early in the morning, just as they promised they would. They started their job with good planning. Things went nice and smooth. They cut down four trees, chopped up the wood in firewood size, laid them neatly by the fence, hauled branches away, and even cleaned up the yard for me. Everything was finished in 2 or 3 hours. No damage, no mess. Four people coordinated very well, because they know what they are doing. I highly recommend Gonzalez and will use them again.

The Sandoval Landscaping Services team exceeded my expectations!! The work to be done was a total removal of all garden beds, removal of an old tree stump, removal of a silver lace vine, removal of a trumpet vine and then application of a systemic killer. Not easy work!! They were prompt and on-time for the appointment to review the required work and presented a more than reasonable quotation prior to leaving. On the arranged day to perform the work they were punctual even showing up a little early because of the possible threat of rain during the day. Their work was amazing. Everything was removed and hauled away and prior to leaving the sidewalks, driveway and street were blown clean of any small debris. This is a team that deserves the highest rating possible and without question I will use them in the future.

Bardos did a huge project for us - we extended our paver patio and also put a 5 foot high, 60 foot long retaining wall at the back of our property. The retaining wall was set ten feet from the existing rail road tie wall- he removed that and then filled the entire 60 foot x 10 foot area with soil to 5 feet high. We have a fence in the back so he moved all the stone and soil by wheelbarrow from the front yard and then through a gate. I am extremely impressed with not only the quality of work, but his professionalism and work ethic. It turned out better than I could have imagined, I am so impressed! You can tell he takes pride in his work and a job well done. He never had a problem with changes or add-ons that we requested (he moved and modified an existing sump pump pipe, cut down a tree, etc). Not only that, he was reasonably priced. I highly recommend him for any landscaping or hardscaping job!

I don't know where to start here..... Francisco is a professional and a master at his trade. I can't believe the turnaround time from receiving my quote, accepting, and project completion. Literally, lightening fast. His price was fair and his men are very hard workers. I will call them again for ANY landscaping needs. Francisco has my highest recommendation. I am a verified reviewer.

Joni designed our homes Landscaping in 2007 and took it thru design to implementation. Since they we have had My Secret Garden back annually for maintenance and enhancements as our budget allowed. Including landscape lighting, Garden and flower bed maintenance. I can't more highly recommend Joni and her team! We have referred her to several friends and all have had great things to say after her designs were implemented.

Fantastic service responsive and very fair pricing. Highly recommend this irrigation service. We had several quotes and many wouldn’t even come out because we didn’t have a previous contract with them. They were professional and diagnosed the problem right away. Received a detailed estimate and then even came back right away again when we needed more help with an unrelated problem. Other companies we called gave us a flat per hour rate and couldn’t even estimate the amount of time required and they are 4 star companies. Use this company- you will not be sorry. Even my picky husband was thrilled.

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.
