Last Sunday, May 1st, I requested Lawn Mowing service from your group. I have never used this service before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I cannot say enough good things about my experience Louie responded to my request within 5 minutes. The process for getting the service set up was straight forward. I could not believe it when Louie was at my door, Monday, May 2. That's what I call great service! Louie did a great job...what a nice guy. Thanks for the prompt service. My lawn now looks as good as my neighbors. Kind Regards.

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.

Kim and her team designed and installed a woodland garden at my home. I couldn't be more pleased with the way it turned out. Kim is creative, hardworking and fun to work with. This was a large project, and I felt that the price she charged was very reasonable. I highly recommend Native Eye Landscapes.

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!

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

Wasted my time. Agreed to do the work, then no-showed. Explained that they would be back this week, and then became unresponsive. Told them up front that we had time sensitive needs for the lawn to be done for sale of the house, they told us they could do it, then ghosted us.

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.

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.

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.
