Shujaur was fantastic! he was able to assemble all the ikea furniture for a two bedroom apartment in about 6 hours! The furniture is assembled well and he was extremely pleasant to talk to! He was a little late to arrive for our appointment but he definitely gave me a heads-up about the delay! Will definitely be hiring him again for any furniture assembly services! THANKS SHUJAUR!

Great group of guys!! Very impressed with how quickly they responded and completed the job. They removed two very large branches off of a 40' tree that were hanging over our house. We would hire them again in the future.

We had a large tree in our back yard that needed to be removed. We were very pleased with the work done by A.merida. Anibal was responsive and flexible. The price was more than reasonable, and the job was completed in the timeframe quoted. I would definitely recommend them, and use them again for any tree trimming or removal projects.

PJ and his team were super responsive, fairly priced, efficient, and professional. They removed some large bunches of tree brush from our yard. They arrived when they said they would (with text updates!), were super kind, and did excellent work. We’d absolutely work with the Weymouth team again!

Working directly with Eric over the past few weeks was simple and professional. He always provided me with updates when he was planning to arrive at my home for tree removals. He also provided some great insight and feedback to improve the other trees in my yard and additional landscaping ideas that we can do in the future. Great guy, great attitude, and would highly recommend for future projects!

Recommended! Our experience was great from beginning to end. We were provided a timely and professional quote. Prior to the work commencing, we asked for several planning meetings and quote revisions and were provided them with ease. Communication throughout the project was clear and often. It has continued post work and Mark is keeping in touch. We had 14 large trees, miscellaneous perennials and shrubs planted, along with some stone work, drip irrigation and landscape lighting. Mark has stayed involved and is checking in on the trees and plantings. We even asked that he move 4 of the trees after they were planted and he did so without any resistance. In addition to the excellent work, MSF demonstrated patience when the project was thrown some bureaucratic curve-balls. We would consider using MSF again for future work and would recommend Mark and his team.

Jim was great! He came out right on time and even though the job was bigger than expected (I didn't do a great job describing it), he took it on no problem. It was splitting large logs fro a tree we had taken down and hauling away. Will most certainly be hiring Jim going forward. Thank you, Jim!

Well educated on all trees and extremely trustworthy. Aims to do the best for your trees and not for their pockets. Will always use them for all future tree needs. They completed trimming 100+ year old maples, installed two cables, trimmed and pruned all other trees and shrubs on lot for an unbelievably fair price. They even came out the day after to inspect a small rose bush (and offered to replace it in the spring if it is injured) that received minor damage from a tree branch that fell during the job. This company is one of the few honest companies left.

Chris did an awesome job. Our tree branches no longer overhang our house and the neighbors tree branches and vines no longer prevent sun from getting to our garden, nor are choking our small trees in our backyard. He was on time, efficient, clean-up thorough, and was very reasonably priced. Great job. Recommended to neighbors.

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.
