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 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.

Bayron and his team do a great job. Quick response to my request for a quote and was on time. Even came early on the day he was scheduled to cut our lawn because of the chance of rain. Really appreciated it! Highly recommend Byron's Landscaping!

When I left for work on Fri. morning my garden was a mess. When I came home at 6 p.m. that evening, it was transformed into my corner of paradise. Ryan cheerfully and professionally did everything I asked and more. He did a wonderful job and is worth every penny. I highly recommend him. Mona in Paradise

Oscar was terrific. He was very professional and his work was terrific. He was very punctual and his follow up and follow through was outstanding. Our rock garden was an eye soar and he brought it back to life. I will be using him for many more projects. He’s a good hire

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.

David did a fantastic job pulling out the weeds, sprouting trees and overgrowth in the two garden beds surrounded by retaining walls. He was polite, a hard worker, and cleaned up the dirt and cuttings afterwards. David texted me more than once to confirm the date & time. He also let me know he was running late due to traffic. Great communication. I plan to hire David again!

We hired Montez to clean up all our gardens, weedwhack some overgrown areas, and mulch everything so it looked nice. He exceeded our expectations at a very reasonable price. Montez was very professional, very respectful, and cleaned up all the debris from the job. We were extremely happy with his service and plan to use him again. We also recommended him to my father, who is also using him for similar work. Don't hesitate to give Montez a call, it's definitely worth it! Thanks, Montez!

My experience with Raul & Lawn Care Pro was excellent. We met and discussed my ideas, he provided information and options on how the garden would look and responded to my feedback. The quality of the work was top notched and the entire job was completed within a week or so. Raul was professional, enthusiastic, and answered all my questions, even the ones that were repetitive. I have recommended him to family and would happily serve as a reference.

Kevin did a great job on my garden area. It was overrun with weeds after we’d raked up all our old mulch in anticipation of all new mulch that never happened. Weeds, weeds, everywhere! Kevin edged along the garden, weeded, trimmed the bushes, and mulched. It looks 100x better! Thanks so much!

My dying dogwood tree needed to be removed. since I like the the tree I wanted a replacement. Gardenscaping in Baltimore contacted me, came to my home to see if the tree could be saved. Since it could not be saved, we talked about the options for a replacement. They arrived on the designated time, removed the old tree, planted the new tree and made sure that the area was left in great condition. Very pleased.

Had an excellent experience with Blair from 'General Land Maintenance.' He communicated well, was on-time, and did an excellent job with our DC condo association's front and back garden area. We will definitely hire again for continued landscaping work this Fall and into the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.
