I reached out to Thunder Landscaping about getting a quote for a fall cleanup. It was a time sensitive request as I procrastinated a bit and snow was predicted in next couple of days. Anthony responded within 15 minutes and was at our house to give us an estimate within the hour (on a Sunday no less !). He was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Best of all the estimate he gave me was the lowest I had received so we set up a date and time to do the work. However, Anthony had been looking at the weather and sent me a text asking if we could move the date up to beat the snow. Before we left for work that day Anthony and crew were already hard at work in the yard. When we got home we were blown away with the work they had done, our yard had seriously NEVER looked better. I would've taken pictures to add to this review but Anthony was right, it snowed the next day! If Anthony hadn't been so on top of things we wouldn't have got the cleanup done before the first snow! I can't recommend Thunder Landscaping enough! It was so refreshing to have a company be so responsive and actually exceed our expectations. In short, GREAT VALUE, GREAT EXPERIENCE, and I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Nature Bound landscaping was great. We had multiple trees fall down during a recent storm including two on our roof. The next morning Daniel was there to survey and on Monday all the dangerous trees had been removed.

Peter did a fabulous job cleaning up our landscaping beds. He went above and beyond even replanting some shrubs and flowers that we did not expect him to do. You can certainly see that he takes great pride in his work. I would highly recommend him. He is truly a professional and extremely responsive. We will be using his services again for sure.

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.

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.

Needed to hire someone to wipe out a bunch of overgorwn weeds and bushes in my yard and then put new grass in. Jose from Boston Cleaning, Landscaping and Painting contacted me and was extremely professional, timely and reasonably priced. He is a hard worker and made sure the job was done exactly how we wanted, answered any questions along the way. He went above and beyond our expectations. Will definitely hire him again.

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!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
