Kevin did an excellent job cleaning the leaves in my yard. I was out of town for two weeks so my grass was probably 6-7 inches tall and I have about 20 trees on my property. Needless to say there were tons of leaves embedded deep into the grass. The job took much longer than he expected but stuck to his original quote. Very friendly and meticulous. I would recommend him to others.

Galen is a rockstar! He did what another company was unable to do- Locate 2 sprinkler valves boxes that no has been able to find for over 3 years. I highly recommend Galen for any job. He was very reasonable and an extremely hard worker. He did much more than expected and exceeded my expectations. Thank you Galen!! We will hire you again.

Nick was hired to for tree work at both of my homes (Overland Park & Mission) I asked him to remove three trees in the yards, 2 very old, big and tall and one medium size tree. When I say big, picture the stump that was left was a bit bigger than a bistro table! I also asked him if he could trim a total of eight trees, remove the dead wood, in all eight and remove the old dead wood that had been stacked up against the shed. I called him and he showed up that day, surveyed two yards and gave me a bid. His price was very reasonable, and he started work the very next day. It was a three day job and it took him three days, right on time. Besides all the great work, what impressed me the most was how easy he was to work with, how friendly and polite the crew was. They all seemed to really enjoy the work and had great attitudes. They worked hard, but were very entertaining to watch as well as they swung through the branches and whooped it up when they felled a large piece.

We had a huge overgrowth in the backyard that needed to be cut down and hauled away. It was a big job and Tim bid it by the day. It worked great as I knew exactly what we would pay for 7 hours, and he had very hard workers who did a great job. They actually worked for 8 hours to finish the job. We were so happy with the work, that we hired him and his team to come and completely clean up the rest of the yard. This will be trimming and wrapping 13 trees, and getting rid of overgrowth under the large deck and fixing everything to look like new (in a huge back yard for a home we just purchased). Tim was honest about what really needed to be done and what would be a luxury...than gave a very fair quote for the entire project. We would recommend his great company, and hope to use him for our necessary deck work in the next few months also. Excellent team and Tim is out there working hard with the guys....and they were extremely respectful of the neighbors and us.

We had 3 areas that needed drywall repair from water damage. Jose arrived early and worked until job was complete. Ceilings look better than when they were done by the builder. Jose was polite, professional and a hard worker. I definitely recommend him!

Gerardo and his assistant were very professional and did an excellent job with our landscaping. We had them place a border around the front and side of the house and fill it in with rock and mulch. They also cut down the overgrown bushes and trees. They arrived on time, provided us with a reasonable price, and completed the work in a day. The yard looks great and we would recommend this Company to anyone looking for a Landscaper.

We are very please with our landscaping! C&M listened to our needs and completed the project in one weekend and it looks fantastic. We even added an extra tree and flowers to supplement the landscaping after seeing their work. Will use this service provider again.

They are prompt, they clean up after they are all done and they work very hard to get the job done in a safe and timely manner. They are affordable and beat out 2 other bids I previously had. They came out the same day I called and we are very pleased. We hired them for another removal at my daughters house and got the job done quicker than I expected. They even sent me before, during and after pictures of the job they did. I will definitely be using them again in the near future and will recommend to everyone. Thanks again Precision Tree Care you did a job well done!

Shelly and her team arrived on time and prepared. We needed a major pre-winter cleanup of weeding, trimming bushes and shrubs, laying down wood chips and hauling everything away. Her pricing was reasonable and she is an excellent communicator. We're very pleased with her thoroughness and professionalism. We've already asked her to plan on us as a regular client in the spring. I highly recommend All Things Green!

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.
