I highly recommend Juan/Landscapes by David. Juan was quick to respond to my initial request. We met to talk about what I was looking for and he took a look at the lawn/landscaping at my place. He had good ideas for landscaping including repurposing some bushes to save money. The price is good and competitive with other companies. We scheduled a time for Juan to come for an initial cut/weeding and he arrived when he said he would and did a great job! Have not seen my property so cleaned up! Another perk is they use QuickPay, so easy to pay for the services. Looking forward to ongoing maintenance and landscaping with Juan.

I needed an emergency tree removal. I am new to Thumbtack so I was hesitant about the process. Louis responded promptly and stopped by the same day. He was very prompt, knowledgeable and all around nice guy. Louis put my concerns to rest and I hired him on the spot. Louis came out the next morning and did a wonderful job. Louis and Nature Life Landscaping is my go to landscaper. Thanks Louis!!!!!!

Roberto was extremely responsive. We had to reschedule several times due to the unpredictable weather. But once he was able to make it happen, I was very satisfied with the work done. I would definitely use Lawn of the Land's services again.

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.

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.

Gustavo and his team did a great job with the sod installation in the backyard of our new house! He even went above and beyond to fix an issue with the front yard without charging us extra. (Plus, the price was right!) I would highly recommend Growing Ways for any landscaping needs.

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.

Last year was the first time I used the services of Newcomb Landscape. The job consisted of the removal and replacement of many yards of mulch...and cut out larger borders around 3 large areas of the landscaping...in the front yard. Also to bring in and lay many yards of mulch in the backyard. The quality of the mulch used was far superior to the bagged mulch I had used previously. Plus before laying the mulch...Preen was spread to help keep weeds under control. The guys had the landscape looking fresh and gorgeous in no time!! This was back breaking work I used to do myself...NEVER EVER AGAIN!! Newcomb's Landscape service has spoiled me!!!

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.
