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!

Tapp's lawn care services was amazing! Mr. Johnson came out on the same day I was seeking services through thumbtack and provided a free quote. Him and his team returned the very next day to complete the yard work. Our home looks great all the calls our home looks great all because of the hard work this company put into our Landscaping project. Last but certainly not least Tapp's lawn care services was affordable yet out yard that looks like it was very expensive to complete! An initial one time hiring has developed into regular lawn care services! Thanks so much... The Taylor Family

Inputed my project needs on the thumbtack app on a sunday afternoon for a landscaping project. Within the hour I had several responses with price quotes. I contacted Jerell with Extreme Yard Makeover and he was out at my house early the very next day. He was very prompt, polite, and did a great job!!

Having used Lawn Guy Landscaping services for the first time, I found the experience with Michael of Lawn Guy Landscaping truly refreshing because of the overall quality of the results. During the fairly recent past, I've used a few lawn services with results ranging from very satisfactory to disappointing. I found Michael's care in performing the work during his initial visit was faultless. The experience with regard to communication (e.g., being informed re arrival time, how work would be done and the equipment used as well as what work was to be done within a given period of time), was much better than other services I've used and I consider that the price for the quality services I received was a fair one.

Our landscape committee believes the owner of this company understood our needs best. He came on site and created a design that we thought would work well. The work is planned for this Thursday, weather permitting.

FortSmith Lawn & Landscape did an excellent job at a property my husband and I were leasing. Upon the end of our lease, and as part of our move-out duties, the lawn needed: a mow, trim, weed-eat, edging, leaves removal (a lot!), trimmed shrubs and an all-around clean-up look. My husband and I were very pleased with the professional results and hope to hire FortSmith Lawn & Landscape for future services. Thank you FortSmith Landscaping!

Pedro showed up when he said he would. He gave me fair and honest assessments of my lawn. He showed up on the first day and cut, trimmed, and cleaned my lawn. I am looking forward to a long committed relationship with Morning Irrigation and Landscaping. So far, I could not ask for anything more.

Brother landscapes were able to get the job done in a timely manner, were very professional, and two of the most hardworking men I’ve met. They did a great job guesstimating how much material they would need to get the job done, and made several great suggestions for my backyard. My yard looks so much better!

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.
