Benito did a fantastic job removing ivy from my back yard, planting grass seeds, trimming trees, planting a tree, and even cleaning the gutters. He even created a beautiful rock border around the tree that he planted that looks great. He and his partner are pleasant, hard-working, honest and very reasonable in terms of cost. Highly recommended!

I had a mulberry tree that needed removed, it was quite big. I hired Gray's to remove it and within a hour Tom called and got his team out the same day. The tree was gone and cleaned up before six, I was beyond satisfied with this service. Additionally my stump was ground the next day by his contracting service. For what I paid and the job they did, they go above and beyond to make sure you're satisfied. I highly recommend Tom and his team for hire.

I hired Jose for trimming and removing some maple and pine trees which were growing over my house. Jose is a knowledgeable tree expert and his team and him did a fantastic job. It is so much lighter now in our backyard and no more leaves on the roof. Pros: Value for job, knowledge and advice, clean job. I would hire Jose again and recommend him to a friend.

Samuel was extremely professional and held true to every aspect of our agreement. He even said after the job was complete that if I saw it needed anything within reason to just give him a call and he would come back and take care of it. I would and will refer Ambient Tree Services to all of my family and friends.

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.

Needed shrub removal, trimming, & tree pruning. Estimate was delivered when promised, project was scheduled quickly, & work began within days of estimate. Can't tell you when that's ever happened before! Everyone who came to my home was professional, knowledgeable, & genuinely cared about the appearance of their work. The price was higher than other estimates, but worth it. I would highly recommend this company.

Words can't express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude. I had a huge amount of leaves at the curbside in the city of Grosse Pointe. It was 12/15/16, twelve degrees out and these dear ones braved the cold to assist in getting these leaves removed. I would have been fined from the City, and Vintage Landscapes came to my rescue. I called several landscaping and tree removal companies and no one could assist, because of the heavy snow and being past the leaf pick up season. They're wonderful & I'm so appreciative & thankful.

They were very responsive in getting back to me about the work to be done, Asked questions and showed interest in doing the job. They showed up on time and were pleasant to deal with and worked hard in removing 2 arbor vitae trees that had fallen down during the winter. Roots gave them a bit of a hard time but they persisted and got them out. Very professional and very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

We have a very big, green yard, corner lot. Many trees, shrubs, ivy covered fences, all overgrown. He removed ivy, cut down overgrown shrubs, cleared out undergrowth in the side yard, trimmed shrubs, all done in a one day. A big bonus is that he took everything he cleaned up and out with him! Colin is ambitious, experienced, and very personable.

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.

    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.
