It was pleasure to work with Tom. I would recommend their services as I found them focusing on quality work and paying attention to details. They had good suggestions for the design of patio and we liked it. It took little longer to complete the job due to weather halting the work and non availability of crews. Their crews were not free from other job they had (I guess due to weather). Few items are still pending and could not be completed as snow started during 3rd week of November. Those tasks will be completed in around April.

Great experience with this company! I needed sod laid in my backyard and some arborvitae’s trimmed. They were very prompt and came out the next day and completed an excellent job! I would highly recommend this company to anyone and it was a bonus that they were out almost immediately! They were very polite and communicated very well during the process and keeping me informed.

ZLM takes care of all my outdoor needs. From grass to snow and everything in between. They are always on time and very polite. Last year they removed and replaced all my landscaping in my front and backyard. They always go the extra mile to make sure I have the best looking yard on the block!

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.

Derrek and his team were absolutely amazing! He and his landscape designer, Nick are two of the most talented, hardworking individuals I've ever met. They cleared out my front and back yards (50+ years worth of overgrown weeds and invasive plants) and installed new sod and beautiful new flowers. To say they went above and beyond would be a huge understatement. They reinforced the wood holding together my flower beds, which had kind of fallen apart over time, they created a little path with some spare pavers they had recycled from a previous area in the yard, and they were extremely friendly and kind throughout the entire process. To top it all off, they worked well within my budget. I'm still getting compliments on my yards two months after the fact. They worked SO hard, and I am so grateful to have hired them! Cannot recommend them enough!!

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.

CJ Services graded and sodded my entire backyard (over 7000 sq. feet) after I had a new septic field installed. In less than three days, I went from a lumpy dirt-filled backyard to a lush, green and soft grassy yard, perfect for our puppies to run, play and enjoy. Throughout the entire process from quotation, to planning the installation date, to performing the actual work, CJ Services and their crew did an outstanding job. They always listened to me and responded to all my phone and email inquiries in a timely manner. The personal and dedicated service they gave me provided strong piece of mind. It's been almost 6 months now and we still LOVE the new lush grass and have had no issues. I am grateful to CJ Services for their excellent prices, outstanding customer service, wonderful crew, and excellent overall product. I'd highly recommend CJ Services and would use them again without question for any future sod installation services.

So far, Chris have been on point. He does things he said he will. Responds quickly to my text/emails. He even worked on Father's Day just to send me a draft drawing because he said so. First contractor that I've met/spoken to that is not all talk only. We are still in the design stage but I will update my review once project is finished.

      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.
