I'm so thankful we found Chris to install the brick sitting area in our front yard. Chris is very professional, courteous, and reasonaby priced. He is very knowledgable about landscaping and very meticulous in his work and design implementation. I highly recommend Chris to anyone for landscaping or any yard maintenance! Chris is one of the hardest working and focused individuals I know! It was a true pleasure to work with him! And we love our brick sitting area in the front yard and so do our neighbors!

Travis built a cedar privacy fence for me. Excellent craftsmanship, fair pricing, very communicative, and timely. I would absolutely hire Travis again for another landscaping project, and would recommend him highly to anyone. Gorgeous fence, we are so incredibly happy with it.

Newsom Design did a great job on the repair work I needed done to our bar. Plus, we had some cabinetry work that was not done properly and this was also fixed like it should be. Price was competitive and job was done in a very timely fashion. I asked for cards to pass to my friends. I highly recommend Newsom Design for small or big projects.

We recently remodeled an old house so the front and back yard were completely in need of an overhaul. The yard needed to be cleared of overgrown dying bushes and the ground leveled before we could installed sod. Juvenal and his crew were extremely helpful and efficient and got the job done! We are very pleased with the results.

Guillermo Garcia is the hardest landscape worker I've ever employed. Great customer service, very thorough and our yard has never looked better. He has been my "gardener" of choice for 3-4 years now.

Campus Labor was incredible My wife is so picky on who we hire, who is near our home and near our children and she was at complete ease with these guys. They did a very good job of our landscaping. I had no worries at all. It looks like I paid a million dollars but they costed only a couple hundred. I would highly recommend these guys for your landscaping needs

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.

Quinton was incredible to work with, both online and in person. He and his crew did a phenomenal job with a lot of attention to detail regarding the landscaped areas and willow tree. The job was not rushed and he took care around our gate with his equipment. Highly recommend this company!

Mike did a decent job with getting the bed ready for new mulching by removing all the weeds and added new mulch and got the landscape area into a nice shape. He was generous enough to spread the extra left over mulch over the area not within the original contract which was very impressive. He was on time and got stuff taken care of without any supervision. Great job overall and I'd strongly recommend for the landscaping works.

Amazing!! Len is so wonderful and so great at his work! We completely and totally trusted him with our garage codes (and our lap dog😉) to be at our home while we were at work during the day. An outstanding job on tile project, I've already recommended him to friends!

We were very happy with the work done. Our landscape project turned out to be the envy of the neighborhood. It took a while to have everything finished, but it looks great and we enjoy spending time in our beautiful yard. Lency and his team were very approachable and listened to our requests. ColorScapes Landscaping was the right choice for our project.

Jim showed up when promised, finished when promised, and I couldn't be happier with the end result...! He went out of his way, even beyond the scope of work that he was supposed to do... I already have another project for Jim to do coming later this fall! I wouldn't think of using anyone else, now that I've had JP Landscaping work on my property! Thanks again Jim, I appreciate you guys.

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.

We have had an excellent experience with Ben and the Green Oasis team! Bens design work was excellent! He listened to what we wanted on our landscape project and tweaked the design several times. The project included concrete and stone, irrigation system, several new planting beds and a total redesign of the front of our home. The project started and finished on time! The crew was professional, experienced and hard working! Follow up was continuos throughout the project with visits and phone calls. We were so pleased with the quality that we used Green Oasis to power wash our homes exterior and wash all windows inside and out, and have set up a lawn maintenance program. Each crew and individual have been professional, knowledgeable and skilled at what they do!

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.
