Tim did a small landscape project for me. He and his crew shoveled 4 yards of Decorative Stone and installed it in my backyard. He was on time and did exactly what he stated he would do. Very personable and easy to work with on my project. I would highly recommend him for this type of work.

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.

Jacob and his assistant (I can't recall his name) were amazing! They showed up a little bit early and listened to what I was needing to have done - so much so that they figured out that what I thought was my 2nd priority, really was my 1st based on what I was saying. They came ready to work with all the tools they needed and did a fantastic job on the initial portion of the job! Jacob did a great job helping me decipher what was most important and what could wait and was very knowledgeable about the additional projects I want him to do. He is honest, hardworking, and knows that he's doing. Really looking forward to seeing what he comes up with for my land/hardscaping projects!

Stephanie, one of the owners, was very easy to work with and professional. I liked that she put our discussions in writing so that we both knew we were on the same page. The young men that worked on our landscape were very nice and easy to work with. They surely blew my mind because they worked so hard all day long in the high 90s temperatures and high humidity. Everyone wanted to make sure we were happy with their work, and we are.

William arrived on time and ready to work! He helped us unload an entire garage full of furniture and junk onto his truck bed and trailer. If we had hired someone else, I dare say that it would have been very difficult to load all our heavy items, but he and my husband handled them with ease. We hired a "hauler" but got a loader, lifter, hauler, dumper, and plain Hard Worker! Thanks a bunch! We hope to have him come back out in the future to tear out all our old landscaping, too.

We could not be happier with our experience and the quality of work of Rangel Landscaping. It was also very reasonably priced. Mike Rangel was always responsive to any inquiries or requests we made, always prompt, and always kept his appointments made with us. We highly recommend Rangel Landscaping for any landscape needs.

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!!!

Refreshing and updating all landscape. Also adding some drainage tubes for the back yard. Derrick has been fast and answers my questions. He has been out to the house 5 times to Make sure things are right before we start the project. His prices were fair and I like that he talk sthrough ideas with me not tells me what I need to do. Also does not push the most expensive idea, but what works best for me .

    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.
