David was quick to offer an in person estimate and evaluate the needs of my yard and landscaping. He offered good advice and multiple choices to improve the appearance of our property. He did great work with a much needed clean-up of our landscaping, planting, mulching, and mowing. It looks great already and we are confident that he will keep it that way.

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.

Francis came out to my property within 30 minutes of putting out the initial job posting. He was very helpful when it came to the decision of what I should do to improve the quality of my front yard. They mowed the lawn, planted new flowers and spread mulch that I supplied, trimmed down overgrown weeds, and also removed a tree. I was very impressed with the service and will probably use them again in the future.

Michael was hired to get my garden in shape because I was putting my house on the market. He was very professional and got the job completed on time. He did a great job and my garden looked wonderful. As I spoke with him I could tell he was very knowledgeable about trimming, planting, and landscaping, etc. I would definitely hire him again for future projects.

I hired Caine to replace a long row of bushes. He and his crew had the dead ones out and all new ones planted, dirt, mulch, irrigation, and brick trim all done in about 2 days. I requested some extra projects and Caine was happy to complete those as well. Communication was great too. (Thumbtack has an issue with my photos - I posted what I could.)

I highly recommend Green Pastures for any project. I've worked with them for landscaping, tree trimming, stump removal, lawn maintenance and even some light construction projects. They are reliable and extremely easy to work with--they are my "go to" professionals for everything now! Their prices are very reasonable, their communication is great and they don't stop until the homeowner is satisfied with the work. It's so hard to find a company that you can put your trust in, but Green Pastures is that.

The landscaping and overall project from start to finish exceeded my expectations. I thought it was going to be a 3 day job just for my front yard and it was finished in a day and a half! He removed all of the winter flowers, replaced my spring flowers in my flower bed and laid down the mulch for my flower bed in such an impeccable time frame that I insisted he do my backyard as well. He did such an amazing job on my front yard; trimming the bushes, trees, placement of the flowers, and the continuing assurance and making sure that I was pleased with both projects, step by step. He provided several variables for the plants and flowering, for instance, a simple version (cost friendly), my version (the flowers I wanted), and his version (flowers he thought would look best) we would collaborate together and if I stated that I would like some of the flowers that I wanted he would show me which ones would look best with his idea and it became a great masterpiece at the end. He consistently asked for my option on placing and it came to a point where I trusted his vision and let him go with what he deemed was fit, but he still asked me what were my thoughts. I valued his procedures and his work ethic because big landscaping companies just do the job and leave without much input from the customer and he proved that customer satisfaction is what mattered the most to him aside from the job. I will recommend him to anyone over a big landscaping company any day. The rate for both my front yard and backyard was reasonable and affordable, and as I stated before he exceeded my expectations above and beyond and did an utmost astounding and amazing job.

From the first moment I met with Mr. Wayne Boudreaux with Oak Grove Lawn, he had a pleasant and professional attitude. He looked over my front yard. It was a mess! ...very overgrown! Instead of negative comments on the ugly overgrowth, he just gave me his vision on what plants and shrubs and trees would be beneficial to me since I wanted a maint. free front yard. Just hearing his knowledge of types of plants was impressive..and I found myself asking him for the colors and shapes that I wanted..and he laughed and told me yes, I can get you that! His quote was magnificent! I've learned Mr. Boudreaux is not only gifted in his knowledge of plants, but also in sketching out his 'vision' for the flower bed. My front yard is lovely again! My husband and I are so pleased. We're saving up for Wayne to work magic on our back yard now!

    For quite sometime now, my wife and I have wanted some landscaping done to our yard. We tried doing it ourselves but had no luck. It wasn’t until we heard about T-Sons Landscaping that we decided to give them a call to see what they can do for us. From day one, T-Sons was very polite, knowledgeable and understanding. Not only did they offer us a few design ideas, but also plant options and colors that would look best for our yard. T-Sons is very dedicated and takes pride in their work. We can’t thank them enough for helping make out yard really come to life! If anyone is looking to have any landscaping done, I highly recommend T-Sons Landscaping! You won’t be disappointed!

    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.
