Redo/refresh of landscaping. Replaced some plants in front. Guillermo was very cost conscious - moved existing plants to the backyard and put new ones in front. Also redid some drain tile work in the back. Found and fixed issues. Reasonable cost. Very diligent in their work and does good follow-through. We would highly recommend them.

Great job transforming the hill in front of our home from dead grass and weeds to a unique landscape. The rock wall that they installed was great, and the paver patio was done right (they diverted drainage through a plastic pipe in a trench they dug so rainwater would come out down the hill from the patio). Really happy overall.

They were great! They showed up on time to give us an estimate. Once we decided on the project, they got the permit and started the next day. They were very professional and listened to all of our concerns. They were always on time and I didn’t need to worry that they weren’t coming. This was a big job and we are so happy with the outcome. It is better then we could have imagined. Within 4 days we had an actual backyard, where our old swimming pool was.

Our garden needed a boost. We live in a townhouse community and didn't need a huge plan. Ben created a plan that was appropriate for the space and our budget. Ben also provided drawings as part of his service, while I was told by other Landscape designers that it would cost extra. Seeing the plan was important to me since it is hard to visualize what the plants will eventually look like. Ben's team was exemplary from prompt arrival to thorough clean up after the project was completed. We highly recommend Ben and his team for any landscape project you may be thinking about.

He's a great guy and he knows plants and garden design and he is an educated botanist and is transforming our yard into a beautiful masterpiece. He loves suggestions but will advise you on what will work and what won't He's dependable and very easy going. We love the guy and we have hired him weekly for maintenance once the project is done because he is so good.

Troxel Landscaping did a great job on my plain grassy backyard. I wanted a couple flower gardens. Reid was very helpful in the design and efficient in getting the job done in one day. I would highly recommend his services. The company also took care of snowplowing this past winter when needed. The big snow in December was a great time to have the snowplow service. It was nice to be able to get out of the driveway and to work, no matter how much snow. Thanks, Reid!

They blew out all the pesky willow leaves from my rock covered foundation plantings and picked up the leaves and twigs in my large backyard. Looks really nice now.

      Isreal got my job via referral from another contractor. Within 24 hours of him receiving the referral they were in contact with me. Within 48 hours they were at the house to take measurements for the backyard patio project we had planned. Isreal is very professional and offered several ideas for the project while we were still in the planning stage. He promised an estimate within 2 working days and did deliver the estimate on time. After the contract was signed, they started work within 5 days as their schedule allowed. The project took about 2 weeks, which is longer than he had planned, but that was due to unfavorable soil conditions when they started excavating, which could not be seen when the estimate was made. Isreal did go above and beyond what you normally find. He is very concerned about finishing the project the way it was planned, and he did so. Any changes that needed to be made were thoroughly discussed before they were made. The finished product far exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely beautiful. I can think of nothing that could have improved the experience.

        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.
