We were exceeding pleased with the work that EBRR Property Maintenance Services performed for us - a new driveway, walkway and garden wall. We also worked with Ed Bilo, he and the entire work staff were extremely professional, attentive to our ideas and a source of excellent advice. We will certainly use them for a variety of other lawn issues that we have in mind.

We were so delighted with the backyard work, we went ahead and had them do the front. They helped us find a superb Japanese Maple as a centerpiece. The work has generated very favorable comments from the neighboors.

After waiting since November to have a contractor come out to clean my gutter. I gave up and tried to locate another contractor. After several replies on Thumbtack, I decided on Reinaldo Torres of Del Ray Landscaping. First thing, he was in the Alexandria area. Many contractors are too far and feel it is not worth their while to travel for a small job. Second thing, its a landscaping business that does gutter cleaning. Great!! My neighbor has tree with limbs overhanging on my roof that traditional gutter cleaners will not touch. Third thing, his quote was inline with the others as far as the gutter cleaning. I did not mention the tree at the time, but the quote for cleaning my gutter was very reasonable. I contacted Reinaldo on Saturday, New Years Eve. He came out the same day in which I explained I wanted my roof swept and gutter cleaned. At that time, I asked if he would be willing to prune the branches overhanging my roof. He stated that would not be a problem for an additional/reasonable fee. We scheduled an appointment for two days later, Monday. It was raining on Monday. Reinaldo, called that morning and explained it was not a good day due to the weather. I understood and we scheduled for the next Saturday. I then looked at the weather for that weekend, and there was a possibility of snow and cold later that week. I called Reinaldo back and asked if he could come out Wednesday, January 4th, after 3:00 PM when I was off work. No problem. Reinaldo and a friend came out Wednesday around 3:30PM. They apologized for being late for they had mechanical issues on the work truck. Most contractors would have canceled. Not Reinaldo, he put a ladder on his family mini-van and came out. Taking about dedication and only 30 min late!!! Reinaldo and his friend, Nelson, did a great job with the tree pruning, roof sweeping, and cleaning out my gutter. They cleaned up after and everything looked great. I am very happy with the service and definitely will be using Del Ray Landscaping again!!! John McCauley Alexandria, VA

I hired P&P to give my townhome backyard a complete makeover. They were able to design a new backyard for me that stayed within my budget and solved all my problems. They completed the job very quickly and professionally. The thing I enjoyed the most was the responsiveness and communication to all my messages. I knew that I was dealing with professionals from the first interaction.

I was looking for someone to give my garden a makeover. I interviewed several landscaping companies. KC's Lawn & Landscaping came up with a good landscape design They removed all old shrubs and hauled them away, they purchased and planted new bushes with varying height & color. They mulched the garden and built me a stone border surrounding the garden. My garden looks nice they were very nice people to work with. Mizz Berna

Mitch Lachin (M & L Landscaping) has been our landscaper for at least the past 15 years. He maintains our yard, has designed our current landscaping scheme, and prepares our yard for spring and winter. Over the years, we have been very pleased with Mitch and his team's work. His first job for us was to remove ground cover and seed a large area with grass a in an area where we had trees taken down. The grass did wonderfully, looks rich and survives to this day. He has successfully helped us over the years in landscape design and planting, helping us select plants that would be deer resistant (as much as plants can be deer resistant!) and low maintenance as well as pretty and colorful. It is always so exciting to return home that day in the spring when Mitch and his team has come to our house, cleaned up our yard and gotten us ready for spring! Everything always looks wonderful. We have asked Mitch to maintain our yard. He contacts us approximately once per month to let us know if anything needs to be done, and if so, what. Sometimes no work needs to be done, and sometimes quite a bit of work needs to be done! The end result is always a yard that meets our expectations. Mitch communicates very well with us, by phone, in person or via email. He always let's us know when he is coming and what he will do. If we have any issues or concerns, he promptly responds and addresses them. His team of workers is wonderful as well. They communicate to us what they are doing and are always neat and polite. We highly recommend Mitch and M&L Landscaping! They have served us well for many years!!!! Barb Ship

Michael provided great ideas and insight into our townhome's backyard re-design. He created a terrific garden box and flower bed and installed additional plants and new sod. He also put in drainage. I would hire Michael again.

Brad kept lines of communication open, from the bidding to the final delivery. My questions and concerns were answered honestly and quickly. The outdoor work happened in between our snow, so it took slightly, but understandably, longer than expected. However, the garden looks so much tidier and easier to maintain. My neighbor even commented it should be featured in a magazine. :)

Nothing but good things to say about Balco Landscapes! I had just completed two projects with separate big name contractors and the experiences were both horrible. Had I not been on home on several occasions, the work these other contractors did would have been done wrong and not to spec. So I was a bit uneasy when I realized that due to my work schedule, I would not be home for the entirety of the landscaping project with Balco. But, Balco Landscapes showed up every day, on time, and did the work they quoted. The work itself is stunning! The installed 2 flagstone patios over concrete base, a separate stacked stone retaining wall, and landscaped a garden bed horribly overgrown with weeds and planted agreed upon plants. Also planted a dogwood in the very back of the yard. Balco also pulled the necessary permits from Baltimore City (which in itself is no easy task). They quoted 2 weeks to complete the project and they finished in 1 week and 3 days. Harry and his team were nothing but courteous and professional from the moment they showed up in person to discuss design and requirements, through to the project's completion. The morning after the day in which it looked as though everything had been completed, I spoke directly with Harry to make sure they were done so I could finalize payment. Indeed they were... but Harry was already on his way to my house to shore up a joint line in one of the patios that "he wasn't happy with." I didn't ask him to do it... i didn't even recognize what he was talking about... but he came out on his own to take care of it. That is owning your workmanship. And that is respect for the homeowner. This is how working with contractors should always be!! They are already my decided choice for some additional work I'll have done in a few months. If you have landscaping needs, you'll be in good hands with Balco! A+ across the board.

I hired Adkins Landscapes for landscape maintenance around my home and lawn maintenance in my backyard. The lawn was in terrible shape and they brought the grass back to a beautiful rich thick green lawn. The team did a thorough spring cleanup and feeding/mulching of all landscaped beds in the back yard and just recently did an excellent job of expanding an older landscape bed in the side yard and planted a lovely new tree in the midst of it. The company is very personable in working with you to meet your needs, very knowledgeable in making recommendations, and has a high standard of quality in their work.

This company's work was exceptional from start to finish. Jon's estimate came fast and was thorough on building three large beds that were filled with weeds and had unkempt edging that ran the perimeter of 1/2 our house. He offered design ideas, found plant and mulch discounts, took care to guard against any foundation water leakage, problem-solved our yard in many other ways, and went the extra mile in every way. And his estimate for that work was not the lowest but not the highest by far. And the professionalism and end result was work every penny. He will continue to maintain our lawn and I look forward to the next major garden project with his company.

Darlene was sent to us as an angel out of heaven. We needed to water our garden for the next several weeks until our irrigation system is installed. None of the Max-sellers or Poorly-staffed-boys in the neighborhood came through for us. We were tearing our hair out! Not only does she water but she has a green thumb and is bringing vim, vigor and vitality...not to mention our garden! Like a leprechaun she brings magic with her handy hose and trowel. Weeds and evil not so dandy lions: you’re on notice! Go, indeed, Darlene Waters!!!!

    I highly recommend Bill LeFave and his team at Audobon Landscaping. He recently provided fabulous design ideas and expert installation that completely transformed my small back yard. Features include a gorgeous paver patio, stone steps, 2 loose-laid stone walls, re-contouring for perfect water control, an irrigation system for the gardens, and lovely lighting. He also did a phenomenal job of cleaning up, pruning, and mulching my entire yard. Bill has great crews, and he supervises and works along with them on all stages of the project. I feel fortunate to have found someone with such knowledge, artistry, and skill to transform my yard. Besides that, he's delightful to work with, can give you terrific guidance about plants, and provides his services at a very fair price. Before we started, I saw his phenomenal work at the yard of a very satisfied customer. Now I am also one.

    Ashley Kidner of ILD is a highly skilled craftsman and designer and his work is absolutely beautiful. He will make your outdoor space better than you thought possible. He transformed our yard into a stunning and functional space with a rock garden, bluestone patio, and dry stack stone wall. We love it and we always receive compliments from our visitors.

      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.
