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!!!

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.

Discussed a date and time for services to be provided, and Lawn of the Land was a no show/ no call. Despite plenty of messaging back and forth to set up the appointment, when it came time for them to do what they advertise, they weren’t reliable. Can’t give zero stars, otherwise I would, since they did zero work.

Jimmy's workers were consummate professionals: quick, picked up and recycled every single thing they removed, and explained everything that needed to be explained to my husband. 100% satisfaction. Afterward, my husband and stood there and pondered how long it would have taken us to do this work. It was money well spent. The job included trimming bushes and shrubs, pulling out a dead bush, removing weeds in the garden area, and cutting down dead perennials. Then they spread mulch. It looks beautiful!

I worked with Rodolfo. He came on time for the quote. We agreed to a fare price for the work. He and his crew arrived on time the day of service and did an excellent job. My services involved fall clean up which consisted of a gutter clean, leaf and garden bed cleanup, mow and edging of lawn.

Mark contacted me immediately upon receiving the quote request, we discussed the issues with my sprinkler system (late shut down) and set times for possible windows to carry out project (weather-dependent). I received a text the morning of the day he said he was coming and was here on the spot. All repairs/services performed, at original quoted price, great transaction.

We hired JN Lawn & Tree for edging and cutting of our yard and were very pleased with the results. They were very professional from start to finish. The grass was cut at the right length for the season and the edging was superb. We used their weed control service as well and our lawn has already started to look better. We would have given 5 stars but there was 1 small spot were clippings were blown into our mulch, but our grass was pretty high at the time. Overall we will definitely be using them going forward. 👍

Cleanwell Building Maintenence's associates were remarkably professional, and the quality of work is far superior to any other simular company I have hired within my 25 years of dealing with such entities. I am very impressed by how they go about their business. I would recomend there services to anyone.

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.

I can’t say enough about Carolina and her team! We live in Chicago, but have a goodly piece of property for the city. Our regular guy has taken a sabbatical from residential projects so I was scrambling to find someone who a) knew plants b) had a crew and c)had an eye. To be frank, my garden looked a bit like Ms. Haversham’s after all the rain this season. Weeds everywhere—horrible! Carolina Irani responded to my desperate plea and offered a quote that I felt was just a tad high—but after reviewing her credentials I decided to move forward. I was impressed by her extraordinary communication! Great follow up, lots of emails back and forth as I tried to describe what I needed to have done. Uber responsive! We settled on a date that worked for both of us (took about two weeks) but she always offered lots of alternatives. When the crew arrived, what really impressed me is that she herself spent about an hour making sure we were all on the same page. She is a lovely, calm, professional woman who clearly knows her stuff. I am a gardener and my worst nightmare is somebody who pulls out a plant that took me 4 years to grow because they didn’t know what it was! Not Carolina. This woman knows her stuff!!! Over the 4-5 hours I saw 3 crew members working non stop. Boy are they organized! Somebody pruning, somebody cleaning, somebody trimming. A well oiled machine. Plus, she suggested edging on the garden beds (YAY!) which made everything have a really pulled together look. I could not BELIEVE how beautiful everything was. Now, I can begin the process of refurbishing the beds and restoring the grass. She even trimmed low hanging branches on my trees. When I got home tonight I took a moment to pause. My fairyland garden is taking shape again! Thanks Carolina and crew. If you are considering hiring her, DO it. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve further engaged her for bi monthly maintenance. A joy to work with and a job extremely well done!!!

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.

Very satisfied with our experience: professional, timely, willing to give advice and also to listen to what we wanted and needed! Incredibly easy to work with. Also does 3D imaging so you can see what you will get, and cleans up the space every day after work. Full service too, plants, gravel paths, pavers, walls, plant boxes, trees (they even installed our mailbox). You can’t go wrong, they did such a nice job on our space that all the neighbors were asking for their info. On top of that they have great pricing. Highly recommend.

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.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

How do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.
