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.

Dee Larson has done four landscape designs/projects for us. She is about to do another! She is willing to work in stages. This means that each year she has completed a project for us. Last year she removed our hedges in the front, added new ones, surrounded the area with mulch and planted an ornamental tree. She's done other bigger projects for us as well.. Each project was unique and completed on time with a detailed quote that was reviewed with me prior to signing a contract. She never exceeds the estimated cost. In fact, one time it was lower than estimated! There are many good reasons why we continue to rely on her creativity and expertise. She is reliable, efficient, professional and knowledgeable. She is "on the job" when any work is being done. In fact, she digs right in and is not hesitate in letting the crew know if it can be done better. She's hard working, honest and listens. I highly recommend Dee Larson. I think you would appreciate her style!

I had the opportunity to work with Kim last summer to expand & refine my gardens. As I wanted to be involved in the process, she helped me with plant shopping, planting & pruning. She has all of the traits you would hope for in a landscape designer: knowledge, creativity & good communication skills. She also has incredible energy! The entire experience was fun & satisfying; my gardens look lovely & I was able to participate in the project. I would definitely recommend Kim!

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.

Tim built a patio and repaired an existing deck. The workmanship is great! The design suggestions he had for the patio were the reason we chose him. The concrete product he recommended is very pretty and the finished look is exactly what we wanted. Tim was difficult to reach sometimes and there were some delays in getting the project finished, partly due to weather. Tim and his crew are hard workers and our satisfaction was important. If we have projects in the future, we would consider them again.

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.

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.

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.

My experiences with Green Oasis after hiring them in the Spring of 2016 to complete a major project around my house was outstanding. Ben Graf was extremely easy and pleasant to work with, and he listened to all of my needs and wants. I am very happy and pleased with all of there work. My front and backyard looks awesome, and I am very happy that I hired them. I will be hiring them again in the near future for more projects around my house.

          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.
