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!

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.

100% hands down I would hire Whitetail Landscapes, Inc. over and over again for any of my landscaping needs!!! Their work is outstanding and they left my yard looking much improved and totally cleaned up all areas meticulously. I would and will recommend Kyle and his crew to anyone needing to hire a landscaper. Kyle and his employees were professional, prompt and responsive to any changes I made as the projects transpired. What a great stress free experience!

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.

We were very impressed with how many 5 star ratings PTL Landscaping has on Thumbtack! That is why we asked PTL Landscaping to give us a quote. We were so pleased with their work that we requested additional quotes other projects. We are confident you will agree with all of the other 5 star ratings if you end up working with PTL Landscaping. We had the following done: (1) installation of 1 drainage pipe from the sump pump and gutters underground to the back of the yard and 2 drainage pipes underground in the front of the yard – basically moving the water away from our house, (2) planting grass/sod, (3) removal of old cement fence posts, (4) removal of vine covering, weeds and older bushes, (4) design and installation of landscaping yard lights and (5) designing and planting our front yard landscaping. Paul (owner) and his team are very professional, courteous, and do a great job. PTL Landscaping has come through with all of our requests. Their pricing is fair and they will give you alternative options (ie different options on bushes) to stay within price points. We have and will continue to recommend Paul to our neighbors, friends and family. I would definitely contact PTL Landscaping for a quote if you are doing a landscaping/yard project of any size. You will find Paul (owner) to be a great guy and someone that you will want to continue to hire for your landscaping needs!

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 did an excellent job with landscaping our front yard. Her communication, work quality and value were exceptional. She really knows a ton about plants and what would work perfectly for you. If I could, I would give her more than a 5 star rating! Thanks Linda!

This is the first time I used EM Landscaping for Spring Cleanup, and was more than satisfied with their work. The yard looked better than ever. When there was a delay because of weather, I was contacted to let me know when they would be able to come out. They did the work on the day they said they would and I was very satisfied. I would be happy to recommend EM Landscaping to anyone and will use them again for future jobs. I was also very satisfied using Thumbtack to find a professional and that I could also pay online. The entire experience was excellent.

I am extremely happy with the service. I barely know they where there ( all lawn furniture put back and more importantly our gate is closed) They are in/out in no time flat but the quality of work does not suffer for their quickness! The price is more than reasonable. My grass has never looked better. Would highly recommend.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE! We could not have been more pleased with the hard work and dedication of Jose and his crew. Rain and all, they provided such a clean look to our landscaping. I am sure we will receive many compliments from our neighbors and those driving by on how nice our landscaping is. Carolina was wonderful to work with going around our busy schedules. She is very responsive... no waiting for answers. I have dealt with many landscapers here, in Wisconsin and Iowa and hands down, this company is the best. We look forward to working with them again. Many thanks for such wonderful service!

T.R. Scapes came in to bid only one small portion of work in my yard. However, due to the success of that work, I hired them to grade the whole yard, and install a dry riverbed and a water drainage feature at the back of the property. After twenty years of tolerating the "lake" caused by landscaping mistakes on adjacent properties, the drainage feature they installed handled the very heavy rains since then. There isn’t a single puddle in the yard. The village engineer was also extremely pleased with the final results.

He is honest and true to his word, quick responses and his team shows up when they say they will show up. I refuse to use any other company other than Anderson Davis

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.
