Kevin submitted a bid and followed up with a phone call. He came out the same day to review the job specs. His estimate was fair and complete. While performing the work he and his partner went above and beyond by spraying some weeds and making sure all debris was cleaned up. He answered all my questions and provided lots of landscape advice. He takes pride in his work. I was very pleased with his work and will definitely use Kevin again.

Tim has been a real pleasure to work with. He was always reachable by phone or email and was clear about costs. My project ended up being more than I was originally quoted, but the scope also expanded, so that is to be expected. Tim always made sure I was happy with plant placement before planting and did a wonderful job. It has been close to 6 months since Tim did my landscape and one of the plants did not take over the winter. Tim immediately replied that he would replace the plants within the week of my contacting him. I highly recommend using Tim for your landscaping needs.

They removed bushes and old landscape timbers from the front of my house. And replaced it with a stone planter box and retaining wall. We went through several amendments throughout the project. Matt was very easy to work with and was great help in amending the design. Easy to work with and was there when he said he would be. I will be using them for the rest of my landscape renovations.

Mark was very good to work with. Appreciated his knowledge, passion and professionalism. Also appreciated his patience as he helped guide us to make decisions. He had great recommendations based on great knowledge. He was very accessible as well. I saw him as a consultant, not just a landscaper. Even though our job wasn’t a big one for him he treated us like it was!

Jeremy and his crew were absolutely fantastic! My recommendation couldn't be any higher. We were looking for someone capable of coming right away to help us do a long list of landscaping items, from trimming all of our shrubs, defining razor sharp lines around landscaped beds, mulching, removing dead shrubs and rose trees, cutting down an entire maple tree, cleaning up and lifting a giant Pin Oak tree, and more. We met him on a Sunday and reviewed this list, he gave an unbeatable quote and had the ENTIRE job down within 5 hours the next day. His crew, was on time, courteous, attentive to detail, and respectful of our property and cleaning up. We are thrilled to know this kind of service exists, and would recommend Jeremy to anyone. Thank you so much guys - We hope to keep you coming back over the years. Amazing job.

Jon and Aaron did a terrific job installing sod and a holly hedge around our century-old home - as the steady stream of neighbors stopping by to congratulate us will attest. They were easy to work with and responsive to our wishes as homeowners. We are very happy with the results and look forward to working with them again in the fall, when we plan to tackle another landscaping project. Thanks, guys!

Precision Tree Care & Property Maintenance did a fantastic job removing brush from our fenceline and trimming our large oak tree. They were helpful and thorough when they came out to look at the job, gave us a fair quote, and were able to complete the job only three days later. They worked fast, cleaned up all of the clippings and brush, and our yard will be so much more manageable for us now. Definitely a great group to work with - I know I will be calling them again the next time I need assistance with our trees or landscaping.

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.
