David recently completed remodeling work for my wife and I, which included two bathrooms, and tiled backsplash for our kitchen. Both bathrooms involved removing fiberglass tub/shower arrangements, and replacing them with much nicer tile-intensive showers. One involved new tub and tile. The other is a very nice tiled walk-in shower. We first met David when he visited our house to gather info for an estimate. As with many contractors, he made a very good first impression. Unlike many contractors, however, it was actually David who returned later to perform the work. (It's understandable that many contractors have separate sales and labor personnel, but it was great to establish a relationship with this young man - who we trusted to work in our home while we were out.) David demonstrates excellent attention to detail and concern for the appearance of the end result, which makes him an outstanding choice for high visibility work like tiling and finish carpentry. He also built our new walk-in shower from scratch, and performed all related plumbing and electrical work. (A definite "5-tool player".) David provided excellent customer service, offering practical suggestions and advice about how we could best meet our objectives without trying to change the objectives. He was quick to understand what we wanted, and very patient and flexible about who did what, and who supplied what. David initiated a meeting/walk-through with us at project end to ensure we were satisfied, and his bill matched his estimate. We now consider him our "go-to" guy for any sort of construction or remodeling, and would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

The water feature professional, Chris, was very knowledgeable and understood the problems created by the previous contractors, MT Contractors, and had a plan for correcting the leaky feature. He followed through and completed the job ahead of schedule.

If there were more "Stars" for the rating MLT Design, I would pick a galaxy. Mike and his crew whent to extra lengths to make sure the job was done right. Always professional and did not let any detail slip by. I was especially impressed with the after job cleaning and tidying up of the area where they were working. I think it was cleaner than when they arrived. Can not endorse enough. A pleasure having then considering all the past "slip shod" work we experienced from other contractors. Definitely hire them, you will be pleased!

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.
