After several landscape companies failed to quote or respond within a reasonable time period, it was refreshing to have Tom Gray respond within minutes, come out and offer an estimate right there on the spot. His crew came out the very next day and knocked out everything I wanted within a 6 hour period. The results were beautiful and I cant thank him enough. Really thought this was going to go on for months on end before we ever got the results we wanted. Tom has a great crew of guys who work with him, his rates are competitive and his suggestions are spot on. Our landscaping looks GORGEOUS! When we need the trees pruned we will definitely use you. Thanks again, Mary Pageau

I had a great experience working with Sal. He checked our sprinkler system, replaced broken heads, and made necessary adjustments to bring everything back in perfect working order. I also very much appreciated his overall experience and advice on home and landscape maintenance and would definitely consider him for future projects.

Needed areas of grass patched. Superior did a great job and even patched some additional areas they noticed were in trouble. Also trimmed some dead tree branches and added mulch to some existing landscaping. They were great and fast.

I was looking for someone to repair a slate walkway in my backyard that had been partially pulled up for some underground repair work .. not exactly a standard job for a landscape company. ZLM assured me their team had the experience to do a good job with this slate, and they were true to their word. The finished job looks even better than when it was new. The crew was friendly and hard-working, and I do highly recommend ZLM Services!

Hector and his crew replaced the front half of my double drive which had been badly cracked and had sunken in. I had five contractors bid the job. Hector's knowledge and quality of materials was up there with the highest price contractors but he was able to beat their bids slightly. What really set him over the top that no one else did was that he offered to fill a large depression in the lawn next to the driveway as well for no extra charge. Maybe it's a little thing, but it shows his commitment to excellence. The driveway looks great.

I had a great experience with Hendrickson Property Maintenance. Jason is very professional and listened to the ideas that my wife and I wanted for our backyard landscape project. He quoted us a fair price and completed the work to our expectation. He was patient with our design changes and had great suggestions. I would hire him again for future projects.

Hired BLB Landscape & Tree to trim several large trees. They came the same day I contacted them to quote the job. Once I approved the quote, they came the following day to trim the trees. They came in slightly lower than two other quotes. Cleaned up the lawn prior to leaving. Will hire them again for future projects. Very friendly to deal with.

We had a massively over grown yard in the middle of the spring cleanup season. The automated emails for responses on quotes became a bit redundant but that did not in the least take away from the work this team did, in the middle of a vacation myself and the initial person I talked to went on a vacation, the team still managed to get the work done in a super efficient manner. More importantly they had ample opportunity to upsell and take me for a bit of money by doing a half way job on particularly some reseeding. Instead they advised me against paying them extra to do a job that wouldn’t have been right, they thought of ME instead of THEIR wallet, that says a lot these days. Great job guys and good luck.

We had Brad come out and give us a quote first. Very personable, professional, and informational. From that moment my husband and I knew we wanted Elements Landscape to do our Brick Paver patio and fire pit. After 2 days we had something we could only have dreamed of. Thank you Brad and the Elements team!!!

This was a great team of landscapers to work with. Job was completed as expected and even worked with me on a couple of unexpected snags due to neighbor problems. They were on time as scheduled, finished when promised and were communicative throughout the process.

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.
