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.

Guiyas Landscaping did an excellent job with my small city garden. It was in dire need of fixing up for the spring and they suggested some ideas beyond what I had needed to make it look amazing. I'm now proud of my little garden again and would highly recommend Guiyas landscaping. They are professional, punctual and provide excellent service.

We really pleased with the excellent job and enjoyed level of interaction with Steve and Carla. They clearly explained the stump grinding process. The price is reasonable and fair. The project was timely, and professionally done. Also, Carla offered us lots of advices regarding landscaping and gardening. We'll definitely do business with Payne's Tree Service again, and highly recommend Payne's Tree Service to family members, and friends.

First, David is good about seeing a landscape and envisioning something creative that will look nice and be functional. But then his crew can execute his vision with precision! Loved what he did to my back yard. They put an extended blue stone porch outside of my screened sunroom. They also built a nice garden area with new walk way stones leading out to it and leveled the yard. Can't wait for the summer to take advantage of my new backyard!

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 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.

We hired Michael to blend an unfinished backyard with a small stone porch built off the house. The creativity he brought to the project was fantastic, and the final product is remarkable; he blended the extension seamlessly with the old work, breathed new life into a neglected fire pit, and created stone storage benches to give us a place to hide kindling in plain sight. Michael was communicative, quick with ideas and suggestions, timely throughout. He left our home in pristine condition, and will be our first call and recommendation when it comes to future landscaping projects -- particularly where quality stonework is involved.

Carlos was the most prompt out of 4 estimates I looked at-although his English is not strong, I had no problem communicating what I needed over Thumbtack and following up with a walk around our yard. We have a pretty large yard with multiple flower beds. He scheduled my service very quickly. He and his team weeded, mulched and pruned our beds over two days. His price was reasonable for the work involved and he and his team were very detailed in clearing up the jungle that had been our garden! I highly recommend him and will look forward to using him again.

The project was to build a large patio. GRG Masonry did an outstanding job creating a beautiful patio using my design and GRG's talented workers. The company had all the right equipment and completed the job in a timely manner and within the contract budget. I plan to use them again next year.

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

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.

At my first town home, LawnMasters Landscaping made a stoop in my backyard into a wonderful patio deck, while also creating a two great stone/brick flower beds at the front of the house. The new look was more than I expected before I sold my house a few years after! The work was so good, it was a no brainer to have them perform lawn service and gardening at our new home! Thanks LawnMasters Landscaping!

I enjoyed working with Santos on our garden project. He was very communicative during the entire process. His team is very well trained in their trade, respectable, and knowledgeable. My garden turned out marvelous, and my expectations were exceeded. I would without a doubt recommend him for any landscape project.

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.
