I am very pleased with the landscaping services that David provided. He immediately answered my emails and was very prompt returning with a quote. He worked around my schedule and preferred meeting face-to-face and walking through what the landscaping could provide in lieu of emails -- a rare quality these days. The yard looks 110% better and I have already received compliments from 3-4 neighbors. I bought a condo in December and the previous owners had done nothing with the yard and the condo had cut a pine tree, ground the root, and left the chopped pine in the yard. David removed the pile of pine chippings, he removed all existing beds, he enlarged the beds, planted new bushes, trees, and flowers, laid a new lawn, and installed a sprinkler system on a timer. In the back yard he put paving stones in the back patio area to create a little courtyard and planted jasmine around the back fence. I was so pleased that I will continue to use his services for monthly maintenance as I live overseas part of the year. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Dennis was prompt in replying to my request for a quote and in completing the job once we made the decision to move forward with his company. I'm out of town quite a bit and so the fact that he was able to go to my house without me being there to look at our yard and come up with a plan for freshening up the landscaping and general maintenance was great. I had no idea what I wanted our front yard to look like and without any suggestions from me, Dennis was able to transform it completely - I love it. Our entire interaction was efficient, professional, and timely. I highly recommend New Orleans Lawn and Garden Service.

I really wish KDJ was closer to me! So polite, honest, & professional! I asked him to mow my yard even though it was just done 4 days ago, because I am not happy with my current provider & he drove all the way out to Hammond from Covington. I am disappointed only because he does an amazing job, & he is just what I am looking for in a lawn service, & I can’t have him! Top notch quality. I wish him only the best & hope he one day regularly services my area!

My garden needed a complete overhaul. New mulch, fresh flowers, shrubs trimmed, weeding, and a general cleanup of my garden to get ready for summer entertaining. Parker from Louisiana Land Art came out and gave me a quote, and after comparing with 2 other companies I chose them to do the job. He was very clean cut and professional and very personable. The job took 1 day and he surprised me with a free power wash of my driveway! I will definitely use his services again as he was very thorough and I truly appreciated them cleaning up after themselves.

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.

    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.
