Gary did some heavy-duty weed control, some landscaping prep, and cleared the years-old grass off of our front brick sidewalk. Now we're having him design our front planters. He's quite good!

We hired this company to wire an outdoor pool cabana in our backyard. Because we have kids and it is a very wet area, we wanted to make certain that there were no shortcuts and that all the proper safety precautions were in place. The owner, Remy, was very professional and detail oriented. He always answered calls or texts promptly and even more importantly, always showed up (and on time) when he said he would. The job was finished on time and on budget, and we have already recommended him to numerous friends and clients of our own. Fantastic company, highly recommend.

Because this winter was so harsh, I was in need of landscaping to revitalize my front and back yard. I utilized Thumbtack to find me a reputable landscaper for the job and they found me 'Cypress Pointe Landscaping'. Once selected, I recieved a phone call immediately. We negotiated a reasonable offer and within a week they completed the job. I and my wife are extremely (100%) satisfied with their work and superior attention to detail. I give them my full endorsement and look forward to working with them in the future!

Allan and Karen are the best! I was looking for someone to create a small patio in my backyard, and I spoke with a lot of different people from Thumbtack, and Stepping On Stones were the only ones who seemed to care about my project, sketched out ideas in the moment, and advised me on different products that would work better. They immediately followed up with a formalized quote and time frame. When I finally pulled the trigger and told them I wanted to go for it, they immediately jumped into action! Allan was here first thing in the morning as planned, and he and his team built a stunning patio in my yard that also involved some intense landscaping to remove the weed jungle that had grown and lay beautiful new sod! They finished the job quicker than expected and left my yard completely clear of any debris or work equipment. If you need quality paver/brick work done by a trustworthy team who actually listens to what you want, then Stepping On Stones is the way that you must go!!!

This was the second time I have hired Glover's Tree Service--last year for tree cutting/trimming, and last week, for general landscape maintenance. Nick removed and replaced dead shrubs and added soil to my front gardens and lawn; and he did a freeze cleanup in my back gardens. Nick was polite, knowledgeable, and did the work quickly. He is very considerate and strives to make his customers happy. I will use his services again in the future.

Scottie came to my aid, on short notice. My previous lawn care provider stopped coming, and the lawn was up to my knees. She was here the next day. Right on time, and she did an excellent job. I have hired her to continue to care for my lawn. I would highly recommend her. She is reliable and does good work!

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.
