We moved into a two-bedroom house and our designer recommended EBRR as a general contractor for our major renovation projects. Luis, the project manager, came in, listened to all our needs and specificity notated our request. We had a complete estimate for everything within only a few days including cost and time frames. Barry and EBRR was able to accommodate with all architect's drawings, all subcontractors and permits. The work was done on time and within budget, even with the inevitable surprises that always come up during renovation. They were punctual, always respectful and very neat.

Landscaping overhaul. JML is the best company I have used in 19 years. I have been a real estate agent for 15 years and refer them every time. They never let me down. They are always on time. JML has done impeccable work for me. From removing debri to laying brand new sod and adding landscaping features. I'm very happy. Good people.

I will say that the whole team work VERY hard and for a very fair price. Make sure that you understand what you're getting. I got a crew of very diligent and industrious landscaping workers, but there is not much design experience there. If you are supervising the work, they will do exactly what you want done and do it well. I would hire them again to do work at my house.

I can say nothing but great things about Mr. Soto and Makimata Landscape. I pondered my project for a long time. I looked at the Makimata website and decided that it was the firm I wanted to work with. Mr. Soto did everything he promised to do, in the time frame he promised, and with professionalism throughout. From initial visit, to a proposed plan and contract, through to the beginning of the project, and on to the end, Mr. Soto and his crew did a wonderful job. He reconfigured my back yard space, built a new deck, redid the lower back yard patio, and totally changed my front yard area. Everything looks amazing, and I have people stop me when I am outside to comment about how great it all looks. If you are looking for someone to reimagine your yard, garden, or deck, I recommend Makimata Landsape without hesitation.

Victor provided powerwashing and landscaping services for me. My concrete patio courtyard has seen better days. I contracted with Victor and I must say he and his staff did an outstanding job! Nothing but rave reviews from my family and friends who saw the transformation. If you are in the need of power washing, new landscaping, you will not be disappointed. I wish I can show before and new pictures of my patio courtyard. Thanks Victor.

P&P is a fantastic company to work with. They did a fantastic job adding shrubs to our front yard and re-leveling our back patio that was poorly installed originally and settled drastically. Highly recommend them for any landscape or hardscape work.

We board dogs at our home, and over time, our gates weakened; one a walk-thru gate, another a double drive-thru gate. KG Yardworx was one of many we considered to replace our gates, but hands down we were very impressed in Kelcey's enthusiasm and interest in working with us with alternate materials and custom design. We provided Kelcey several pictures from Houzz and Pinterest of our gate concepts, and together we came up with a most original sturdy gate for both entrances. Both gates were completed timely and to our specifications, with literally hundreds of views within days of being posted! Kelcey's coming back for more of our projects.

Pedro did an amazing job on the landscaping for our townhouse. The before and after is remarkable. In the beginning there was a slight discrepancy about bricks being included in the quote, but Pedro was accommodating and still completed a quality job for the quoted price. He was patient, took his time, and was very detailed oriented. Not only did he do a phenomenal job on the landscaping, but he was very kind and professional. He always returned our texts and calls quickly and exuded the utmost professionalism. We will be using his services 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.
