These guys responded quickly, provided a competitive estimate, and then followed through in a timely manner with great execution. And the entire hiring process from posting to completion took less than three days. We are extremely satisfied with our landscaping and will definitely be using them again for other work in the future. Highly recommend!

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.

Dan was very responsive with excellent communication. His team was very professional, did an excellent job and cleaned up without leaving any mess behind. His cost of labor was very reasonable as well. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him to anyone else needing landscaping services.

Rony provided a complete gutting of all beds on our property including large bush removal and many stumps and a complete clearing of the back of my property from heavy thicket and bamboo. They arrived early and got right to work, cleaned everything up when they were done and his price was very reasonable. I liked his work so much I have taken him on for the summer to maintain my grass. Appreciated the ease of communication and being there when he indicated! As you can see, plants were very over grown and I wanted a fresh plate.

I received three quote's, MFS was very competitive. With their experience, previous work, recommendations and website, I felt comfortable hiring them for my 500 sq ft paver patio. Mark and his crew did an outstanding job start to finish. I asked for something unique in the design and his crew delivered with beautiful curves to enhance the look, this is time consuming and takes a talented eye, it looks great! The finished product looks awesome, on time, on budget. Professional landscaping at its best! Thanks Mark and crew, great job!

“In one word, outstanding, from start to finish. I couldn’t be happier with Hernandez Landscaping’s work on my cement block retaining wall. Christian was very responsive from the time of my first inquiry right through job completion. I got 5 separate job estimates and have no doubt I made the ‘Best’ choice. All work was performed on-time and as expected. Christian is very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone. The team was prompt, professional and worked diligently and quickly through the job. The site was left clean and all debris was taken away and disposed of. The entire experience was positive and hassle free. If you are looking for a professional and experienced contractor, Hernandez Landscaping is without doubt the best choice for the job. My only disappointment is that they don’t build decks because they would be hired for my next project! Thank you Christian, Oswaldo and Crew!

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.

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 are absolutely delighted with the law cuts we are getting from JDP Landscaping Service. Apparently they picked up a new machine this spring. It is one of those where the operator rides above the cutting deck and uses left hand and right hand levers to steer the mower quickly in tight circles, three point turns. The result is a smooth, flat cut of the grass around our curved walks and flower beds. The also do a great job of removing grass trimmings off of our driveway and the flower beds. They always show up when they say they are going to be there and do a great job. We recommend them highly

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

I live outside Brookline Village and finding a good reliable landscaper can be tough but that wasn't the case with "JT Landscaping". I spoke with Joe and right away we set up next day service and he agreed to do my lawn Weekly. He was kind and very polite. I highly recommend this company. -FP

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

Outstanding! DP Landscaping showed up at our agreed upon time to review our project needs. Dave had all his equipment and was ready to begin the job immediately. He did all that we asked and a bit more, for a more than reasonable price! He was polite, professional and easy to work with! I've already recommended him to a few friends.

Extremely pleased with Medford Lawn Services. We had shrubs that needed a good pruning after a long time with no attention and needed a good mowing,weeding and edging. Allan came out the next day after I contacted him and was very knowledgeable and fair with his pricing for the job. He also managed to schedule me within 3 days and we are very pleased with the results. We will be calling Medford Lawn Service back for sure! Here are a few before and after pictures

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.
