"I asked three handy men to bid on several jobs that I needed finished in order to put our house on the market. The jobs were: painting several rooms, ceilings, and front door, re-staining woodwork to match existing wood work, patching holes in walls, and installing transition strips. Initially, I was impressed with aWardable Maintenance because it was clear that Evan was very knowledgeable, was very quick to get back with a bid, and gave me the most reasonable bid. To date, Evan has not only completed the above jobs, but he has also completely refurbished our deck, laid a stone patio and re-grated an area below our deck for better drainage, lifted and leveled a landing in our yard, was able to take care of a plumbing crisis without having to cut a hole in our bathroom wall, relocated some sprinkler heads and serviced our sprinkler system, and he and his crew installed sub flooring and beautiful new hardwood floors throughout the main level of our house. He even added his artistic touch to our floors with a beautiful design in our entryway. As with any renovation, issues arise, and Evan has taken each one on without hesitation and the results are impressive to say the least. We have also hired Evan to clean and re-stain our play gym, trim and shape a tree and take out a tree, landscape two good size flower beds, and clean our gutters. As far as I can tell, there is nothing this guy can’t do and he does it all meticulously, and in a very timely manner. I cannot say enough about the quality of workmanship provided by aWardable Maintenance. You will not be disappointed! Should you have any questions, you can obtain my contact information from awardable Maintenance. I would be happy to talk to you!"

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.
