I hired Obed Matul of GMP Landscaping to install my patio -- about 17 feet by 30 feet. Obed is the owner. He has a crew of about two to three people. His pricing is generally comparable to others -- perhaps just a bit lower than others. His crew is very dedicated and hard working. To be successful with Obed, make sure you have him signed the contract and label your tools so there is no mix up at the end of the project. Even though I had a design plan and had Obed signed it, he still wanted to change contract in a middle of project. But generally speaking, I'm pleased with Obed and his crew. At end of project we gave his crew extra tips as we feel they deserved it for hard work.

I'm very impressed with Stephen's quality of work. He replaced my field stone concrete steps with big slabs of granite and also tore up my walk way to install some new beautiful cambridge pavers. It didn't end there, he also ran sleeves for my outdoor powerline and irrigation system since those lines ran under my previous walkway. His pricing was very good and I plan to hire him again for future projects. I also get compliments all the time now from my neighbors when they pass by my brand new walkway :).

I hired Weymouth & Sons for several jobs, including junk removal, various handyman tasks, and landscaping. They will absolutely be my first call for any jobs in the future. Don't bother looking for anyone else; the quality of work and professionalism are top notch, and the competitive prices are more than reasonable for the value. Thank you for such prompt and terrific service!

I am so grateful to have found Herandez Landscaping. They did an excellent job. Three workers got the lawn done in a short time (even though it was first cutting of the season and starting to rain). Looking forward to working with them every week this spring and summer.

New Beginnings is an excellent all-around landscaping service provider. My lawn was in extremely bad shape--overgrown grass and weeds and old leaves--and when I arrived home after hiring New Beginnings to beautify my front and back yards, I was amazed by how beautiful everything looked. It looked better than I could have imagined. I can't stop looking at my lawn and appreciating their fantastic work. I am 100% pleased with the work Neptali and his crew did. They went above and beyond! They are all wonderful, professional, and experts at what they do. The price was great, too. I recommend them to everyone for any landscaping job. You will be pleased, too!

We would recommend Mendez Irrigation without hesitation. We originally hired Juan to put in a stone patio, which required him to remove several large flowering shrubs. As requested, Juan and his men removed and bagged them in such a way that my daughter replanted them in her yard and is able to enjoy them. Then last minute we asked him if could do some landscaping around the yard. He placed a brick border in the front and side of our home, along with flowers, mulch and trimmed the shrubs. All this completed in approx. 2 days. Also we were very pleased the way he cleaned up before he left. The yard was hosed down, and swept up. Overall we are very pleased with the results and would hire him for future projects.

Chris was great. On time, quick work, reasonably priced. He also took some pics for some landscaping work I want to have done in the spring. They do a lot more than junk removal. They are a full service landscaping/snow removal company as well. Thanks!

I have used this service for landscaping in the spring, summer, and fall, and snow removal in the winter with great success. Bill is reliable, honest, and highly professional. He comes when I call (usually within a few hours), does what he says he will do, and charges a reasonable price. He is also a polite, kind, and couteous man and a pleasure to know. His services at both our home and business site have been excellent - 5 stars! Kathleen Savour Wine and Cheese Gloucester, MA

Freddie arrived on time and ready to get the job done! He repaired multiple lawn irrigation heads, a cracked outdoor pipe and got my system up and running. He set the system to run at a scheduled time that was right for me. Fast, efficient and hard worker who charged me a fair and reasonable price for the work done.

My husband and I have used Magnolia on many occasions for walkways, new gardens and planting’s and have always been pleased. Most recently we built a home and Magnolia Site Works, landscape and hard scape designed the entire property. The work was complex and required a lot of coordination with other subcontractors and management of conservation rules and regulations. The end result was more than we imagined and beyond expectations. Brent is very talented, always professional and his team is the same. Magnolia Site Works is at the top of our list for landscaping, patio and walkway needs!

Edvin and his EAC team were fantastic! The job included a new patio, stairs, a 15 foot stone walls, a 60 foot retaining wall, and a front walkway. They exceeded my expectations every step of the way! EAC is experienced, skilled, reliable, and professional. AND, Edvin was very patient with me during parts of the decision making process. I recommend him to everyone and anyone with a masonry or landscaping job!

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
