I asked Sam to help in building a lego/crafting desk in the basement for our family. He happily took on the project and did an outstanding job in not only building the desk but providing great feedback and changes to the design that helped create the beautiful and stable desk we have now. He also installed a new drop light and electrical outlet in the same room for us that came out great. I would highly recommend him for any project. He is honest and very trustworthy with his work and a great communicator.

Obed and his team are experts at what they do. They were able to clean out our backyard, front yard, side yard all in one go with ease. They even cleaned up the Boston ivy that was creeping all over our yard. Attention to detail and getting the job done right is something that Obed knows. I'd hire him again on the future (I've already planned on it!).

I had a large pile of branches, brush, debris, etc. in my backyard left behind by a previous owner. Gilson responded quickly to my request for a quote, and was ready to do the job when he showed up to estimate it. They met my expectations and removed the debris and brush and performed a satisfactory job at a reasonable price.

Jose did incredible work. Took a messy, overgrown backyard and turned into a neat, clean space in just a few hours (see photos). Friendly, responsive, quick, and a fair price. I strongly recommend you hire him!

Having recently moved into a beautiful home, we were unable to keep up with the yard maintenance with our new little bundle of joy. Al came in and completely transformed our backyard from the jungle it was, to our new oasis...and he did it all with a smile. Great guy who does great work at a great price!

We hired Magnolia Siteworks to create a new entry walkway to our front door. Brent was responsive and professional. The craftsmanship is exceptional and the walkway looks fantastic. He and his crew completed the job despite some rough weather conditions. We couldn’t be happier. We look forward to seeing his plans for the next phase of our front landscaping design!

We hired Florus Services to do a one time clean out of debris in our backyard. Gloria Services did such a great job, when we decided to hire a landscaper we immediately called them and we are completely satisfied with both the cost and quality of their work.

Jeremias did a great job on my backyard. My backyard was a mess and he needed to take down some old structures and completely redo the lawn. He also installed sprinklers for a good price. Importantly, he was thoughtful and tried to figure out ways to make our project into what we were envisioning. He did a fantastic job on my fence and I’ve gotten multiple people asking me who did it for me. I had talked to a half dozen fence people and none of them could execute what we had in mind. Also, he is always on time and on schedule which I appreciate.

Siedeh is completely amazing! She has a keen eye for beauty, and I truly appreciate the care with which she arranges a garden for my own benefit as well as the plants and the soil. Every spring for the past 8 years, I have hired her to build the garden in my small patio, and each year she creates a work of art. She works with me to decide the combinations of colors and types of plants, then designs a plan that will work with the lighting, condition of the soil, circumstance of the family dog needing toilet space, etc. On the day that she builds the garden, she involves my children and teaches them about caring for the Earth. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Siedeh and her work!

I was very happy with the work done by Kris and Drewlex Landscape Masonry. Kris was very responsive and professional. He fixed my front entrance walkway with a beautiful design that completely changes the exterior of my house. I will definitely work with him again.

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.
