Jose was great to work with!! Very professional and did exactly what he promised. He called me in less than 30 mins during my initial attempt to call him. He was very flexible with setting up a date to perform the landscaping. He even reached out to me to look at a different date because of the weather. Very very professional! My yard looks amazing! Jose and his team created a beautiful border around my patio and my storage shed in my backyard. He also revived my front yard landscaping. I would definitely hire JT Hope Lawn Care again! I highly recommend!!

I hired Wharton Construction to install a coffered ceiling in my living room and kitchen. Josh provided me with a competitive bid, a few reputable references, and a sample piece to show me what the end result would look like. The entire ceiling was a custom design, and Josh went to great lengths to make sure some of the more complex details came out looking great! And it did, we could not be more happy with our custom ceiling! He even took care of some items that were not on the original quote. I would definitely hire him again, and in fact I have. Since the completion of the ceiling, Josh has done some custom cabinetry work in our kitchen, including a built-in buffet and a chimney style range hood that matches our existing cabinetry. He did an excellent job with these pieces as well! I would highly recommend Wharton Construction for any custom carpentry work.

I engaged Mr. Disinger and Disinger Grounds Maintenance & Pest Control to complete clean up, mulching and trimming of my large yard. My backyard and the front of my Meridian Kessler home look like a enchanted garden! I not only recommend Disinger Grounds for the services I received, but am most confident that Disinger is more than capible of much larger projects!

Created a sculptured ceiling, painted walls; removed old floor tiles and installed new tiles. 3) Reconstructed a 14'x20' attached deck, including replacing all of the 2x4 support lumber and deck flooring and rails. 4) Painted eves around the ranch-style house. In each case, KDZ performed each project in a thoroughly professional and satisfactory manner. Mr. Howard is highly creative and a very good worker; he has an excellent eye for designs and colors. He is highly recommended for the projects he has done for us; we will use him again.

John and his team build a fantastic two level enclosed patio with a built in grill, and sink. It also has a water fountain and gas bonfire. John designed the patio and the landscaping surrounding it. It is striking and solicits praise each time we entertain. John is really easy to work with, very flexible and his crew is great. The site was clean every day when they left. I cannot say enough about working with them.

    Warren and Downin Enterprises has been a godsend! He's an expert with older homes (mine is over 100 yrs old) and has done everything from numerous home repair projects to new design and repurposing of an old space, a stairway landing into a fully plumbed half bath. He's also done tilework, repair plaster on lath walls, installed ceiling lights and fans and added electrical outlets. In addition to inside work, he's designed and constructed a flagstone patio and perimeter gardens. He has a great natural eye for good design--you would never know that the half bath was once a landing. Plus he's reliable, efficient, smart and top quality--what more could you ask for? He's every woman's handyman dream!

    Yard Nut installed our renovated landscape and did a great job. Chuck made a few suggestions from a fee based design we had drawn up and we have went with his suggestions. We are very pleased with the quality of work and the quality of the plants selected for our job. I would highly recommend them for any landscape project. Jim W.

      About

      I provide a highly detailed lawn mowing and lawn care program designed for your lawn needs. This is not Trugreen! I do the work right the first time, so service calls are not necessary but still free if needed. I have a $40.00 minimum charge for mowing and do not offer partial lawn programs because they do not work. It is my reputation and name on line, and I take my work very seriously. Coming from a big company, Scotts Lawn Service, I have seen the issues that arise from one or two applications. I ask for one year on the lawn to give you the quick and visible application results you expect and will design applications focusing on rooting development and color and thickness. Mowing includes trimming and edging of all hard surfaces like drives and sidewalks. I use quality equipment and wash my mower deck and wheels daily, so I don't spread weeds and disease from lawn to lawn. I also offer landscape design and installation of flowers and shrubs. All my work is guaranteed, and I will explain in detail your side of the care needed to speed up results. My theory is that all you have to do is complete the job right like it is your own property, and you will have loyal customers who will stay for years to come. Your not just a number here, you're my future!

      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.
