Ed came by in a timely fashion and removed all the junk from my backyard as requested. We now have a noticeably larger amount of green space in our backyard, which is great!

Gabriel did an excellent job. He promptly answered my request for a raised flower bed (approximately 150ft). Once I agreed on the contract, he came back on the day promised and did the entire job in one day. He also rerouted our drain and field a large crack in our backyard with the extra dirt from the flower bed without charging any extra. I had a few questions for him before he started the job, and he probably returned all my calls and answered all my emails; it was very easy to get in touch with him. He and his crew were very professional and very nice. He returned after a couple of days to rinse the bricks with a finishing solution. The flower bed looks gorgeous,and I will definitely use him again when we do our patio in the backyard.

Mike's Drywall Service did an excellent job! Mike, his father, and his mom were very honest and straightforward people. Mike's father got the job done quickly, was very clean and tidy, and knew what he was doing. If you hire Mike's Drywall Service you will not be disappointed. My ceiling had a manufacture ceiling design in the basement, as well as in the Kitchen. Mike was able to texture the ceiling after cutting out damaged drywall from a leak, replacing it with new drywall, priming the areas that were stain, which did not get cut out, painting, and texturing both ceilings. Both ceilings had a different design, and Mike was able to blend the designs in with the rest of the ceiling after doing the repairs. I appreciate their service. Now a days it is hard to find an honest, reliable company, but you will find it in Mike's Drywall Service. :)

Makimanta removed a concrete patio and sidewalks and replaced a crumbling retaining wall and wooden fence in my backyard. More than any other company that gave me a quote, Makimanta really listened to what I was looking for and didn't try to suggest a quick slapdash replacement of just my fence. Their craftsmanship and attention to detail really shine through in the finished fence, and they worked hard to deliver the project on time. They did a really nice job and the entire experience working with them was awesome.

I found Richard to be a great guy to work with. He is extremely professional and very accommodating of changes that occur during a project. I highly recommend he and his team for backyard work. They did two massive 3' x 90' retaining walls and it looks great.

Working with Pedro was an excellent experience. He showed up promptly and on time and had very reasonable prices. I hired him to clean leaves out of my front and backyard and it was a difficult job, but he worked hard and completed it in just a couple of hours. I ended up hiring him for regular lawn service. Highly recommended!

Ramiro and his team did a great job! They cleaned up our front and backyard, trimmed trees and bushes, mulched, planted plants in multiple locations and put plastic wrap underneath the mulch for better prevention of weed from growing. They also installed a pipe for better drainage underneath the mulch Infront of our front door. They did what I asked them to do and they were very responsive to what I want. I would hire them again for the next job and highly recommend them!

I have hired Reinaldo on two occasions, and both times he did a great job. He was very thorough, prompt, and cleanly. My only issue is that we had mentioned we needed to clean the gutters, and after it was completed, it still seemed that the gutters still needed more of a thorough cleaning afterwards. Other than that he had done a phenomenal job with everything, to the cleaning of the weeds behind the sheds, cutting of the grass, mulching of multiple areas and revamping the entire backyard. He is great and goes above and beyond with different aspects of the projects he is hired to do! We will definitely use him again! :)

First I would like to describe the reason I chose Victor over the other companies to complete the job of leveling and sodding my back yard. The other companies showed up with one maybe two people, looked around measured and sent me a quote without much conversation. Victor on the other hand showed up with his entire crew and actually talked me thru the process and showed me what needed to be done and how he was going to do it. I was impressed by the commitment he seemed to have to make me happy with the service he was going to provide. Rain set the job back but he stayed in touch throughout giving me updates on when he could begin. The weather cleared on a Sunday and they were there bright and early. Victor and his crew prepped the area like it was his own backyard. Not a square inch was left void of being prepared for new sod. On the day the sod arrived those guys were a hundred miles an hour getting it down so they could keep it moist with the water hoses. The backyard looked so good that he took it a step further and seeded and fertilized my front yard at no charge. If you are looking for a company that prides itself on giving the best product, outstanding customer service, one you can trust, and also competitive prices, look no further than these guys. I am 100% going to use them again for more projects I have in the future.

I hired Adkins Landscapes for landscape maintenance around my home and lawn maintenance in my backyard. The lawn was in terrible shape and they brought the grass back to a beautiful rich thick green lawn. The team did a thorough spring cleanup and feeding/mulching of all landscaped beds in the back yard and just recently did an excellent job of expanding an older landscape bed in the side yard and planted a lovely new tree in the midst of it. The company is very personable in working with you to meet your needs, very knowledgeable in making recommendations, and has a high standard of quality in their work.

Zach made the process of redoing our backyard very smooth! He always took the time to answer all of our questions and to explain every part of the process. Not only was he upfront and honest about costs, but he was very efficient and timely in getting everything done before we left for our vacation!

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.
