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.

We highly recommend using Larry and Debbie for landscaping needs. Our backyard was a mess - uneven and grassless. They leveled it out and added topsoil and grass seed so that our backyard will be a place we can enjoy. They worked quickly, were friendly and genuine, and took great care that the job was done right. Larry truly cares about the quality of his work. They went above and beyond what we asked to ensure our yard looks great. We will be using them in the future for more projects! Thank you so much Larry and Debbie!

Stone, Soils and Shrubs were an absolute pleasure to work with. We contacted Jason Taylor on a Thursday, he came out to our house first thing Saturday morning and completed the work within a week's time. And the work was PERFECT. He and his team of guys could not have been better. From the initial consultation with Jason, it was clear that he loves what he does and also, that he totally gets what the consumer is looking for. We had a significant water issue in our backyard and Jason helped come up with a game plan and also gave really great ideas for things we could do in our front yard in terms of beautification. And his team of guys carried this out so precisely and wonderfully. We HIGHLY recommend Jason Taylor and Stone, Soils and Shrubs and really look forward to working with them again in the future for all of our lawn/landscaping needs.

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.

I could not have been more pleased with the entire process of hiring Harrison & FortSmith Landscaping. It was a bit of an emergency & we really needed same day service. From the first point of contact he was immediate with his response. Within a few hours he arrived & did an amazing job on the lawn, which is uneven & has a large, steep hill. His pricing was such an amazing value & the quality & speed of his work was more than we could have asked for. We will definitely be using his services in the future! What a great guy! Thanks, Harrison!

I hired Mr. Cloer and his son to maintain my parent's yard. He has mowed, aerated, and mulched. He will be trimming and the hedges and trees. Very pleased with the quality of work. My mom has told me several times how nice & polite they are, and said they are "hard workers". This means a lot, because she was heartbroken when the last gentleman had to give up his landscaping business. Will continue to use their services.

I was very pleased with the outcome of the job. Michael was very professional and got rid of my dead tree in no time. He also trimmed the shrubs in my yard very professionally and cleaned up perfectly. I was very impressed and can highly recommend his services. He has been the only landscaper and arborist I’ve met so far that really understands how to trim shrubs the professional way.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
