This gentleman did an excellent job hanging multiple pieces of art/furniture throughout my home. He was very methodical and careful, and really knew where to hang things to maximize aesthetics. Took off one star because he was 2.5 hours late, but all in all, he did an excellent job and I would gladly hire him again. Thank you for a job well done!

Hired for removal of fallen trees and Spring Lawn Clean Up. We agreed to split the work into two jobs. Job 1 was removal of 2 partially fallen trees, which he and his team made fast work of. We met on. Saturday and agreed to remove the trees on sunday. They showed up ahead of the agreed time and finished the job in short order and cleaned up the street of any wood chips after the work was complete. Will post more once the Spring Clean Up Work is complete, but based on today’s work I would hire Thunder Landscape again. Antony was responsive, professional, priced fair and did the work we agreed to do.

We are first time homeowners and landscaping is very new to us. AC Landscsping and their crew helped us convert that bushy derelict garden into a clean looking lawn with a small flower bed. The price they charged was half of what other landscaping companies quoted. They did the whole thing in a day and cleaned up nicely without leaving any mess behind. I plan to hire these folks for future jobs as well. Before and after photos attached.

Obed and his crew spent 11 hours on our spring clean out. The landscaping was beautifully done. Trimming, mulch, weeding, all perfection for a quarter of what you will pay the big landscape companies that are in and out in 3 hours for more money.

I began using New Begginnings early last year and have been using them ever since. These guys are extremely hard workers, my yard looks like a golf course! Their customer service and professionalism are excellent as well. I would recommend New Begginnings to any one looking for professional landscapers to make their property look incredible!

Got back to me the same day with a response. Quoted me a price and stuck by it. Did a great job on my lawn. I also want to mention that he went out of his way to do extra work that wasn’t required of him. I wonder why this company has so many great reviews because his work is excellent and is a pleasure to work with. I have hired him for my landscaping needs. Thank you

Bela Vista Landscaping was amazing, from first contact to when they completed the job. The customer service at Bela Vista is what every company should strive for - fast, helpful and responsive. Due to unforseen circumstances, Raphael has to work alone at my house and spent 6+ hours cleaning mulch beds and installing new mulch. He worked extremely hard and efficiently and very professional. I'll definitely be using Bela Vista again for more landscaping work.

Boston Cleaning, Landscaping and Painting is a real find. Jose and his three colleagues could not have done a better job of clearing, landscaping and mulching my property. They did the work promptly, finished on time and charged a reasonable price. During their worktime they were friendly, courteous and professional, and I genuinely enjoyed my interactions with Jose and the crew. I have already recommended their work to all my friends, and those who have already had work done are as happy as I am! I highly recommend Jose and his crew to anyone reading this review--you will not be disappointed! High quality work and very kind, thoughtful, hard-working individuals. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Jose and his crew. My husband and I are already lining them up to do our fall cleaning and feel confident to use Boston Cleaning, Landscape and Painting for more projects in the spring. I can't say enough good things about these guys. Thank you, Jose! You guys are the best!!!

Jose always responds very quickly and professionally. His price for winter plowing was more than competitive. Will look for him to do some landscaping work in the spring as well.

OGX Irrigation did a phenomenal job on a lawn installation project we hired them for. From the initial meeting to the execution of the project, everything was great. Our yard looks amazing! David was able to start a couple days after we initially met to go over everything. He kept me informed throughout and was very friendly. Despite some strong storms and heavy rain one day, they completed the project quickly. We will definitely be using OGX Irrigation for our future landscaping projects. I highly recommend them. I wish I had additional photos, but here is one. Super job!

Very professional and understanding of my needs and wants. Competitively priced. Invoices in an appropriate manner, not like another company I know that was 6 months behind on invoicing. Has all appropriate licenses needed for his trade unlike other fly by night landscapers. I would highly recommend to everyone!!!!

I hired the Quality Landscaping for a small masonry job. Hilario was very responsive ( easy communication by text, online), pleasant and professional. Due to the rain in the past days, I have not yet checked the finished stone walls. All covered. For now, 4 stars for the reason but hoping to update to 5 stars once I see the finished work. Thanks!

I've been working with James @Triple J for about five years. He's done everything from masonry work repairing my foundation and chimney to yard clean-ups. The most recent work he's done for me have been major yard renovations starting with a new front walkway in brick pavers (herringbone pattern which he suggested) which was completed in the fall of 2017. During his work on this project he also removed the weeds and turn at the end of my driveway and replaced it with pea stone. This August, he stripped the crabgrass and top layer of my lawn and replaced it with sod. He cleaned up each garden bed, moved plants around for better flow, used a large stone found in my yard as a focal point in the front, mulched each bed, and finally, put up a new stockade fence we lost during the 2018 Noreaster. James is always on time for quotes and meetings, communicates often, provides ideas and solutions, and he and his crew are great to work with when they're on site. Anytime I need something done, I check with James first.

Darren responded right away and came out the next day to look over the job needed. We had shrubs that had grown way out of control! After talking with him we found extra areas of our yard that he could help with. His manner was professional, the value was great, and he did it all within a week. We are keeping his card for any future jobs!

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.
