Henry's Landscaping transformed my front yard from looking worn and dated to vibrant and fresh. Their design was spot on, and the price was reasonable. I couldn't ask for more from a landscaper.

Jeremy Sparks has done drywall work for me - he's good and FAST! He did a raised bed garden box - he loves to work with the customer on the design ideas. For friends, he did some amazing landscaping work. So, ask him about whatever you need - not just the big remodeling or construction jobs.

The week before Christmas, I was only 6 days away from the closing on my house when the appraiser said that FHA loans required a railing along my front stoop for safety. I hired Garden Design at the very last minute and thanks to James, I am now able to proceed with the closing! He worked in the freezing cold and snow in the dark until 8:30 on a Friday night just to make sure the job was completed. He took the time to create the custom railing BY HAND the morning of. I'm so grateful for this company for helping me achieve my goal and on such short notice. James says his company is able to preform a number of other projects and since I'm currently renovating my house, I will definitely contact Garden Design for help in the near future! I HIGHLY recommend hiring Garden Design and Maintenance for any "handy-man" projects! I forgot to mention... the pricing is UNBELIEVABLE! When I looked at the final invoice, my jaw dropped! My guesstimated cost for a job like this was WAY above what I was actually billed for! Whether you're tight on cash, or looking to save a few bucks, GARDEN DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE should be your #1 choice! Sincerely, Kirsten, 100% satisfied customer :)

    Scott built a corner pergola in our yard and I was very impressed with the outstanding service I received. He listened to my ideas for what I envisioned and assisted in the design phase of the process to ensure I had the right design to match. The work was completed very quickly. I am extremely pleased with the final result! The pergola has been a great addition to our back yard. I will definitely be using his services again and would not hesitate in recommending Scott to others.

    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.
