I cannot say enough good things about these guys! We had them come out for an estimate Saturday, and they were here first thing Monday morning to work on our project. They worked tirelessly from 7:30 in the morning until 7:00 at night, and then returned the following morning to complete the job. I have not seen such amazing work ethic in a long time. They were friendly and professional and far exceeded my expectations and I couldn't beat the value for the price. I will continue to use them in the future for all of my landscaping needs.

Juan was amazing! Even though I wasn't able to be on site, he did the job and did it so well. Suggesting ways to improve our lawn and landscaping currently. He was friendly and efficient. It was also nice that he was responsive over text messaging so that we didn't have to keep playing phone tag! Thank you again 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.

Contracted Whitetail Landscapes to dethatch and aerate my front and back yards. Kyle was responsive and provided a reasonable quote, kept in contact prior to the day of work, and he and his crew were friendly, professional, informative and completed the job earlier than expected. I would recommend Whitetail Landscapes to friends, and will likely use them for future landscaping needs.

Cow cuts were wonderful they responded quickly to my need for landscaping and were very affordable for the amount of work that they ended up completing. The job was quite extensive and they worked very hard all afternoon to complete the job to my satisfaction. The outside of the house looked amazing when they were done, looked like a different house! They also cleaned up well and even swept out the garage! I would recommend Cow Cuts to anyone, they are fabulous ! Thanks Josh!

They turned our backyard from a mess into a beautiful landscaped lawn with nicely cut curves for flowerbeds. All of the sod took root and is high quality. Roberto and team were thoughtful, knowledgeable, on time and thorough. I will try to share before and after pics. Highly recommend. Btw, I had to pay upfront to buy materials, which I get, but it made me worry at first, since I’ve never worked with them before. That turned out to be no problem at all. Everything went off without a hitch. And even after it was done, they checked in to be sure we were happy with it.

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.

I hired Mr. Williams and We Work Lawn Care to mow and wack my yard. I did not previously know this company, and was skeptical. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of quality service. His service was very good, and he was a very pleasant gentleman. I would highly recommend his company. Thanks again!!

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.

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.

Did an excellent job cleaning up our backyard. The new sod looks amazing and they created a play area for our playset and sandbox. They were very helpful and also brought new mulch and built our playground. We will definitely use them again for any future landscaping projects we may have.

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.

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.
