I live in the WolfTrace Subdivision near Costco. We had one (2-story) tree removed, and about 6 backyard trees trimmed. Very happy with service and will likely be repeat customers. The owner is a nice, straightforward kinda guy. 5/5

We have been very pleased with Goodman's Lawn Care from beginning to end. Dustin was professional and prompt when he came to offer an estimate on removing a significant amount of overgrowth in our backyard. He gave us a fair quote and explained exactly what he would be able to do. On the day of the job it rained almost all day, but that did not stop Dustin from completing the job. He delivered exactly what was promised, and we couldn't be happier with the results. A couple weeks after the job was completed we were leaving on vacation and our mower went on the fritz. I called Dustin and he assured me he could put us in his mowing rotation. He has since come out once a week for the past 4 or 5 weeks to keep our yard mowed. I highly recommend Goodman's Lawn Care & Service for their fair pricing, professionalism, and reliability.

Joe and his team built a modern horizontal fence and gate to secure our backyard for our dogs. They also did general cleanup and put down seed with netting. The entire project took less than three days and I am pleased with the result.

I needed a short pathway from the front of my backyard to the back and I wanted it done in a way that compliment's the current landscaping in my yard. We had a few brief delays due to weather, etc but Craig agreed to work my project into his existing workload and complete in early October, which he did. He even put in a pad for a bench I was putting in. The pathway is beautiful and I am very happy with Kentuckiana Landscaping.

I needed a landscaping service that could do a complete makeover of the plants, trees, and shrubs around the front of my home. While looking at Thumbtack, I ran across Fowler Landscaping--and that was a very lucky discovery! I contacted them, and they came to see me personally to do an estimate. I had the numbers very quickly and told them to move forward. I was so impressed with the quick service and the quality of the work that I called within a week and asked them to do a few more things for me, including tree trimming and replacing a mailbox enclosed in a brick structure. (My husband had tried valiantly to remove it, but he gave up pretty quickly!) Once again, things were done with expertise and care--and at prices that were below other estimates that I had received. I am very impressed by the Fowler family and their landscaping business! I have a few more projects in the spring and will be calling again for more estimates. This company is the real deal. If you want service with a personal touch, reasonable prices, and amazing results, give them a call. You won't regret it!

It was a pleasure working with someone who took as much pride in his work as Landon did on our hardscape patio. His designs were on point and his work was on time and on budget. His flexibility to work with the homeowner was paramount for our job. We was able to incorporate ideas as the job progressed and still find creative ways to add value at every turn. We highly recommend his services to all. Thanks Landon for a job well done!

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.
