Kelvin and his crew did a phenomenal job. We were over run w leaves from all of our trees and he cleaned up all of them and some brush and downed limbs. He was very flexible, professional and did the job he said he would do. I will be hiring him again once we decide what to do with our landscaping. If you hire Black Diamond Lawn Service you won't be disappointed.

You can't do better than Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance. Nick Gillaspie is a true professional with an artist's eye. He recently completed a job for our family, rebuilding our house in Dilworth which was over 100 years old and in very rough condition. Before we started with Nick, a real estate agent told us that it was a tear-down. Now that Nick has finished his work, it's structurally sound and beautiful. As someone who's done a little bit of construction and carpentry myself, I know good work when I see it. Nick can do just about anything in the building trades himself and do it well: frame and finish carpentry, drywall, flooring, tile work, painting, roofing, landscaping. But, when extra help is needed, he hires the best. His crews are mature, very hard working and fun to hang out with. Nick himself is a pleasure to work with, a really nice guy with a good sense of humor. He's a family man with a serious work ethic. He talked through different possibilities for solving construction problems and cleared every major decision with me in advance. He worked hard to find the least expensive solution to problems that could have been costly. And he came up with creative ideas for how to make a very old house not just functional, but a real pleasure to look at and live in. I'd work with him again any time, for any kind of job. If you're looking for someone for any job, large or small, and would like a reference about Nick Gillaspie and Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance, please email me at sikahn@bellsouth.net with your phone number, and I'll give you a call.

Gillespie Lawn and Landscape has started the process of transforming my yard from an eyesore into something that I am proud of - I couldn't be happier with the services provided. Gene went above and beyond my expectations from mulching areas that I hadn't considered to providing updates & communications of the progress. I feel confident that Gene and his team are caring for my lawn as if it were their own. The use of online quotes/ invoices provide a form of transparency that I appreicate and being to pay online is an added convenience.

I have a difficult lawn to mow and my previous lawn service would scalp the lawn and leave rows of uncut grass. Brown's did a fabulous job of cutting and trimming. Glad I found him!

Steve Walker of Accent Landscape Lighting provided prompt, courteous, expert, and affordable professional landscape lighting service after my aged system was decimated by a lightning strike. Specifically, he repaired two transformers, replaced one that was completely wrecked, removed and relocated “moonlighting” wires and mounts that were choking my trees, cleaned and refurbished as needed all of my fixtures, replaced worn wiring as needed, and relocated and re-aimed fixtures to more appropriately accent the current state of my trees and landscape features. He also replaced ALL of my system’s lightbulbs (and I have fifty (50) fixtures!) with LED lights so that my system now runs for a fraction of the previous cost! I am very, very pleased with his work, and as far as I am concerned he is my “go to” guy for all of my future landscape lighting needs. HIGHLY recommended!

Small landscaping project. Very knowledgeable about plants, soil, planting. Punctual and respectful. Will definitely use Spencer again! Wish we'd found him for previous job done by bigger name landscaper which was sub standard. And Spencer is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

I am very pleased with Dreamscene Lawncare. They take care of my lawn in the summer, cutting the grass weekly, seed and fertilize when needed and take care of leaf removal all fall. If Aldo feels another service or project would be beneficial he lets me know and we discuss it before anything is done. And if I want a variation of the service he usually offers, he is very accommodating and will make adjustments. They are dependable, efficient and do a very good job.

I was very satisfied with the work Igor From Pro Cut has provided me! My new Sod looks absolutely beautiful, seamless and I couldn't be happier. Outstanding work! Igor was on time, polite, and very professional throughout the whole process. I have been searching for a good landscaper for a while now and I have definitely found the one. Will be using Pro Cut for my future land care needs and lawn maintenance and would recommend them to everyone! If you need a landscaper, "Pro Cut Lawn and Landscape" should definitely be your first choice, you will not be disappointed, I wasn't. Thank you Igor!!

I have hired Tyler for multiple jobs, and will definitely continue to do so! He is super reasonable, has a great personality and does an awesome job! I've hired him to mulch, lay landscaping stones and paint the inside of my home! He is capable of so many different things, it makes it nice to only have one go to guy! Would definitely recommend him!

I normally never write any reviews at all but felt I needed to write this one. I posted this job on Thumbtack and Reid, the owner, contacted me ASAP. I live in The Peninsula and needed the job done very quickly and he come over as soon as I told him this. It was already later in the day when I contacted him and he still came over to try to do the job. We ended up taking a lot of time discussing exactly what I needed done and actually ran out of daylight so he came back the following morning to finish. During our discussions, I asked him a lot of questions about his company and his background as I always want to know who I am working with. I will briefly say that I am a person that started my own company so I definitely appreciate someone that has the entrepreneurial spirit and is trying to make it on his own. Reid started this company a little while ago and is doing all the right things to grow it successfully. He is personally involved with every aspect and appears to do whatever is necessary to make the customer happy. If you are looking for a landscape company or even as little as just having someone just mow your grass then this company is the one for you. Give them a chance and let him see what he can do for you. He is a polite man that will listen to exactly what you are wanting and then will offer any alternative suggestions without forcing them on you, which I very much appreciated. I promise you that you will not go wrong with this company. Give them a try

Clay and his his team did an excellent job installing a long drainage system from driveway to the back of my yard, incorporating two downspouts. They also re-shaped a large portion of my front yard to improve drainage which had impacted my driveway. Clay had a great vision for the project, which was different from the other quotes I'd heard. This, combined with his competitive quote sealed the deal. When completing my project Clay and team really went above and beyond - adding seed and straw to a good portion of my lawn, removing a large piece of foundation that my builder had left half buried in the yard and putting down extra sod on my side yard. All these things contributed to a great value and experience. I would certainly recommend Green Tek and plan to use them on phase 2 of my landscaping. Great job!

I recently bought a house on Lake Norman and the property was beautiful, but the landscaping was a mess. They came in and cleared out all of the leaves and helped me clean up the front and back. I’m super excited for them to come back out for round two!

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.
