Just wanted to share my experience using Thumbtack. We needed a large yard work project done and chose Julios lawn care services from the Thumbtack providers provided. We could not have been more pleased with the job done by Domingo and his team. They were prompt, courteous, worked very hard and efficiently. They completed the task quickly and left the yard clean and neat and removed all debris. Domingo was accessible and responded to any questions quickly. I would recommend this provider to anyone and would definitely use them again when I need lawn services done. I'd give them 10 stars if I could!!!

We were in need of having three trees removed from our front yard and contacted JC Lawncare. One of the owners of JC Lawncare, Jose, came out to the property to assess the job and quickly provided us with an estimate. Not only is JC Lawncare very affordable, they also have a quick turnaround time. All three trees were removed in four hours and the yard was cleaned up exactly how we left it. We are incredibly happy with the service and would highly recommend them if you're in need of tree removal or any type of landscaping!

I highly recommend Juan/Landscapes by David. Juan was quick to respond to my initial request. We met to talk about what I was looking for and he took a look at the lawn/landscaping at my place. He had good ideas for landscaping including repurposing some bushes to save money. The price is good and competitive with other companies. We scheduled a time for Juan to come for an initial cut/weeding and he arrived when he said he would and did a great job! Have not seen my property so cleaned up! Another perk is they use QuickPay, so easy to pay for the services. Looking forward to ongoing maintenance and landscaping with Juan.

Great Company to work with. I have had several landscaping companies over the years and working with Salgado Landscape & Tree Service has been the best to work with by far.

They are very reasonable and I really enjoyed meeting with them. In addition to what I was looking for, they offered me some free advice on helping a tree that was in pretty bad shape. I will be using Alvardo for all me tree services from now on.

German showed up on time with all the equipment needed to get the job done quickly and efficiently. He was very professional and knowledgeable. One of the trees had branches that were weaved through power lines and he maneuvered with no problem. His price beat all other quotes I received and I would definitely use him again. I highly recommend Greman's tree services.

I fell behind in mowing and couldn't keep up with the weeds in my yard. I asked Bob for an estimate on cleaning it up, mowing and edging. He responded immediately and his estimate was very reasonable and affordable. The yard looks great and I feel very unburdened because the yard's poor condition was weighing me down. I've also hired them to do my weekly mowing. And Bob, I'm really sorry you got stung so many times. Also, I'll be diligent about removing my dog's land mines now that I can see them in the short lawn. Thank you!

Arrived promptly at 7 a.m. and began the trim at 8 a.m. During the hour, he evaluated the job which included getting a limb between 4 wires. He advised his young worker while he was on the roof and provided good education for the young man. They were all very polite. I gave 4 stars because the area where the limb connected to the trunk is made with 2 cuts that don't have a flat surface. I would have given 4 1/2 stars if I could. I would definitely use them again. The quote was below the final price but he didn't know about the wires. I thought it was a good job since the weather was not the best and the limb went up over the house. So, 4 1\2 stars would be ideal. If you need a tree trimmer, hire him.

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.

DA Landscaping did a great job cleaning up our yard, trimming our trees and bushes and mulching. Our yard looks great and they were able to do the job on short notice. Would highly recommend John and his team.

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.
