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!!

From the time Craig responded to my request to remove a 50ft tree in my backyard, to the time the tree was completely removed was 4 hours! Craig drove by my house while I was at work to estimate the removal, sent me the quote, and removed the tree before I got home. Awesome service! A+

Mike did a great job! He was reasonably priced, reliable, and safe. He took down a mature ash tree in my backyard that was tucked in a tight spot with no trouble and more importantly no damage. I would recommend Mike for anyone in the future.

We had Dave and crew work on our outdoor are across 2/3rds of an acre. They did a great job, it looks well maintained again and I can't wait to plant and make our backyard look even better next year. I would recommend and/or use this service again.

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!

Needed to have some trees installed to create some privacy in our previously open backyard. After getting several quotes picked Grandview Landscaping for not just price but confidence I had in them to complete the job after discussing our needs and listening to suggestions during the initial visit. Have used them for years for starting/stopping our irrigation system and was first time using them for landscaping service. Would hire them again without hesitation. Thanks Scott and staff at Grandview for the excellent work!

    We had Zo do our landscape project in our backyard last year and it looked fantastic! I told him exactly how much I wanted to spend and he gave his input, a picture he had in mind, and perfection was done and done! We couldn't be happier! We call him for last minute lawn care projects all the time too, he's the best!

    Mr. Young completed a list of items that would allow me to more easily sell my house. He promptly responded to my inquiry and gave a very fair quote. The work was completed in a professional, quality, and timely way. Mr. Young demonstrates honesty and integrity, so I had no hesitation about allowing him my home unsupervised. He is a Christian man, so I was happy to give him the business.

    I'm currently a maintenance mechanic at the cheese factory in the town where I live. My first trade is being an electrician for the last 25 years. I worked for the local park and recreation for 14 years. I did grounds work/landscaping, and janitorial type of work. Then I stepped up and started taking care of the building maintenance. This included landscaping ball diamonds and golf courses (sprinkler systems) and maintained the city pool. I coordinated the renovation for that pool which contained 455,000 gals. of water. I carried an electrician's license for 12 years and most of my electrical job was old-work renovation. I also have an associate's degree in electronic technology. I have lots of experience in all trades. So drop me an email. I'll check out the situation and give my advice at no charge.

    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.

    How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

    Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

    • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
      • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
      • One time only: $45 per service.
        • Prices include 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.
    • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
    • Lot size:
      • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
      • Half-acre lot: $50.
      • One-acre lot: $100.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
