Our landscaping project went much smoother and quicker than we ever thought it could! He came out to take a look at what we wanted to do and was able to start immediately. He removed all of our old plantings, did general weeding/clean up, and put down new soil in a few hours.. which would've taken us several days to do! I also appreciated that he reached out to me later in the day to reconfirm that we were happy with everything. Definitely recommend for fast, clean service at a fair price.

James and his crew from Raptor Valley Landscape for a big cleanup and maintenance job at my house recently. The job took several hours and I was extremely pleased with the results! James made sure that I was kept informed of what they were doing and asked for my input when necessary. At the end of the day, James made sure that I was satisfied and offered to come back out if I found anything that I wasn't happy with. I would highly recommend James and his crew and plan to continue to use them for my landscaping needs!

Fair price, and great results. Tray and team tackled a big job, cleaning up my yard and pool area from 6 months of neglect. Had excellent suggestions about things to do to make the area more visually appealing as well. I will be using Tray and his team for my bi-weekly cuts, and future landscaping projects, highly recommend.

Matt was quick to respond to my search in thumbtack and listened to the issues and offered to come and give an estimate. He came to look it over on very short notice, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and was able to provide a quote for me almost immediately that I could present to the business. I am absolutely thrilled with not only Matt’s knowledge and expertise, but also his speed, flexibility, and courtesy. I would definitely recommend Matt for any of your grading and landscaping needs!

Very happy with Carolina Garden company. They came out and assessed our needs within a couple of days and were very responsive to our design questions/ideas. Once we decided on a plan, they were out within days and their team did an amazing job. Brad and Shelley were super nice and even gave us watering instructions after the job was done. Will hire again!

Larry was super friendly and professional. He gave me a great no pressure estimate (best one I had gotten out of 5), with a very good price at the time which included cutting debris into firewood sized logs for me. I would have chosen Barrows but I got an even lower estimate the next day after the storm knocked the top half of the tree down making a complicated job quite simple. Larry and his company, Barrows, definitely came across as very professional and trustworthy and great prices.

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.
