Kevin submitted a bid and followed up with a phone call. He came out the same day to review the job specs. His estimate was fair and complete. While performing the work he and his partner went above and beyond by spraying some weeds and making sure all debris was cleaned up. He answered all my questions and provided lots of landscape advice. He takes pride in his work. I was very pleased with his work and will definitely use Kevin again.

I needed a massive mulching and landscape fix up. Tim and his crew went above and beyond what was negotiated and did it all to perfection. Tim was always responsive, and easy to work with. The job was don within a week, and accomplished like true professionals. I would and will recommend and use Anything Outdoors in any outdoor project.

They removed bushes and old landscape timbers from the front of my house. And replaced it with a stone planter box and retaining wall. We went through several amendments throughout the project. Matt was very easy to work with and was great help in amending the design. Easy to work with and was there when he said he would be. I will be using them for the rest of my landscape renovations.

Jon has been taking care of my yard for the last 3 seasons and by far he has done the best job of any others in the past. Jon mowes weekly, aerates my yard and controls weed growth and reseeds when needed. I have a very plush looking lawn and love it!! I will keep Jon and J L Lawn and Hardscspes as long as I own this house! Jon recently installed drainage pipes in my back yard and has absolutely resolved the drainage problem. Thumbs up and big shout outs to Jon and J L Lawn and Hardscapes.

Mark was very good to work with. Appreciated his knowledge, passion and professionalism. Also appreciated his patience as he helped guide us to make decisions. He had great recommendations based on great knowledge. He was very accessible as well. I saw him as a consultant, not just a landscaper. Even though our job wasn’t a big one for him he treated us like it was!

Jeremy and his crew were absolutely fantastic! My recommendation couldn't be any higher. We were looking for someone capable of coming right away to help us do a long list of landscaping items, from trimming all of our shrubs, defining razor sharp lines around landscaped beds, mulching, removing dead shrubs and rose trees, cutting down an entire maple tree, cleaning up and lifting a giant Pin Oak tree, and more. We met him on a Sunday and reviewed this list, he gave an unbeatable quote and had the ENTIRE job down within 5 hours the next day. His crew, was on time, courteous, attentive to detail, and respectful of our property and cleaning up. We are thrilled to know this kind of service exists, and would recommend Jeremy to anyone. Thank you so much guys - We hope to keep you coming back over the years. Amazing job.

Blue Line Lawn was a little higher with their prices than the other offers. However, they were the most responsive when communicating and were very direct in what they offer and did a great job of fitting my last minute scheduling. The job they did on the yard was very good. What was even better is that they did not use the large mowers which tear up the ground. They left my yard looking extremely professionally kept. I would have no issues recommending Blue Line Lawn.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
