I highly recommend Ortiz Lawn and Landscaping! Chris was prompt and arrived at our agreed upon time.

Chris completed the work quickly and exceeded our expectations, paying attention to detail. The yard looked so nice, we were thrilled! We will definitely be calling Ortiz Lawn and Landscaping for more future projects.

We needed help in clearing out plant beds and moving existing plantings - and we're clueless when it comes to gardening. Of the four companies we connected with, three through Thumbtack, one that had done extensive (and expensive) work for us last year, Kim easily won the job. Kim worked with our timing and acknowledged our budget. Her rates are quite fair, her passion for the business, her communication, follow-through and her crew are exceptional, and a pleasure. We hope to make this the start of a on-going service relationship.

B&B Pro Landscaping did an outstanding job! They removed our old sod, installed new sod throughout the full yard. They added details of pulling up our flower bed liners, cut out holes for our irrigation system, and even repaired a leak in our irrigation piping. We will definitely use B&B again. I would highly recommend B&B for any of your landscaping/lawn care needs!

If you know what you would like to do to your property, give Campus Labor a call. I have seen many jobs successfully executed under their leadership. Spring clean up, and mulch installation consistently look splendid, I will pay for services like this in the future.

Lency and crew were polite, professional and completed the retaining wall project as requested in April 2017. The pricing for the project was straight-forward and affordable compared to other quotes that we received. We are all around completely satisfied with the work performed and would definitely hire ColorScapes Landscaping to complete any other landscaping projects for our home.

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.

I had Clear Cut Tree come out to trim 4 trees. Brian was an excellent communicator, we had to reschedule once due to weather, but he was proactive and punctual on the date we rescheduled for. Getting a bid from him was quick and easy. He did a great job, cleaned up and hauled any branches away. My yard looks great!

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.
