Mike has done a great job cutting our lawn and even removed two trees in our landscaping the first day he came. I am extremely picky when it comes to lawn care and we've been very happy with his service. So happy in fact, we hired him to cut another family members lawn as well. Mike's wife, Misty, cleans houses and is fantastic too. She helped get our new house back in order after the previous owners had seriously neglected the upkeep and cleaning. She is detailed, efficient and all around amazing. Hire them both! You won't be disappointed!

Job: Grading and Sod Installation Dan is a very knowledgeable professional with a strong work ethic. My project required grading a complex area followed by laying sod. A French drain was also included. His price for this work was fair and completed within schedule. His work knowledge goes well beyond the work he completed for me and would highly recommend Dan for any landscaping work you might have.

To anyone looking to hire someone to take care of your garden and landscaping, Kathy Selz is the person to call. I only regret I didn't take before and after pictures of my landscaping because you would be able to see what a difference it makes when someone knows what they are doing. Kathy showed me the plants and bushes the deer are eating, bushes that were trimmed incorrectly and showed me I had probably a foot too much mulch. We made a plan to get everything the way it is suppose to be. Yesterday, Kathy and her crew came out and worked the plan. The mulch they dug out from the landscaping which had been accumulating for 20 years filled a truck and then some. I am so happy our "paths" have crossed and I look forward to a long relationship with Kathy and her company. She is a true professional that knows what she is doing.

After two weeks of rain on the weekends I was desperate to have our lawn mowed. I searched on Thumbtack and found Landscape Care. They were available within 2 days of my contact (thank goodness)! And they immediately responded to all communications (response in less than 2 hours). Our lawn looks great. I've been pleased from start to finish!

We had 1 tree removed and 1 tree trimmed at our residence. The Envirogreen staff from start to finish was very helpful, informative and professional. The tree crew did an amazing job with our older large tree we had removed next to our home and power lines. We would recommend this company to anyone looking for tree service or even landscape work. We couldn't be more happy with our experience with Envirogreen.

We utilized Bllandscaping for new, low maintenance landscaping of our front yard. From start to finish we were impressed with their professional behavior on our job. They were extremely helpful as I encountered a hard time visualizing what we wanted. After discussing ideas, we turned them loose to develop a plan for our needs. Let me just say, they hit a homerun! We are extremely happy. We cannot thank Brian, Doug, Antoine and Ashley for their hard work, pleasant personalities and attention to the smallest detail. If you need any type of work done outside, you can't go wrong with tbis company.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
