I spoke to Galen about a leak my sprinkler system developed. I was able to take a picture of the leak and upload it to him. We made arrangements to have him fix it. John, who works with Galen, came out to work on my system. I found him to be very pleasant and knowledgeable. The leak turned out to be more work than originally thought to be. John worked until dusk to ensure he had the leak fixed and the faulty valve replaced. Frankly, he did a better job replacing the valve than the original installers of the system. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Galen and John to anyone. I hope to hire them in the future to extend my sprinklers to another area of the yard.

I work with contractors for a living, and the thing that I personally value the most is an individual who owns their commitments. Tim and his guys did exactly that. He gave me a competitive quote, an assurance on quality work, and a solid timeline. He kept to his pricepoint, nailed the quality, and got the job done when he said he would. I will absolutely use him again for future work. Another aside, I'm a family man with a wife and young kids, and so was he. Tim was incredibly respectful of my time and my family. I'd trust his crew to work on my yard even if I wasn't home to oversee his crew; and I don't feel that way around most contractors. If you're looking for quality yard work, call him out for a face-to-face meeting, and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

We had just moved into a new home and needed some yard clean-up but were too busy with projects inside the house. Matt was on-time, friendly, upfront about how long it would take and any extra time needed (huge), he sent before/after photos while he worked, and there wasn't a single leaf or tree branch in the yard when he was done. Even though I typically do my own yard work, I'll be using Triton again if I ever need a hand.

Yard of the Month did a great job mowing and picking up our leaves in our front and back yard. The one thing I would ask before hand, if they are going to take the leaves with them or leave them in yard waste bags for your yard waste service to pick up. Yard of the Month had good pricing and I would use them again.

I was very impressed with Jeremy and his crew's professionalism and friendliness . Jeremy was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and explained it for me. Other tree trimmers had only advised taking the whole tree, I however, wanted to save as much of the tree as possible. We had planted it when we first bought the house in 1971 and it is the only shade in our front yard. Jeremy was able to do just that. I was so pleased with his response and his knowledge. I now have my tree, without the dangerous limbs. They were very reasonable in price and excellent in precision of work and clean up. If or when I need any more tree services I will definitely call on Yard Sharks LLC,

Derek was very responsive, professional and helpful. I had a couple of trees trimmed around the house. He completed the project quickly and ensured that I was happy with the finished look. The yard was left in the same condition as when he arrived, meaning everything was cleaned up. I'd defiantly use this company again and I'd be happy to refer him to others for their lawn care needs.

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
