I contacted Mark earlier today in desperate need of some lawn maintenance. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, my grass had grown to near knee height. He showed up same day and went beyond what we had discussed. When I thanked him for his extra effort he seemed surprised I thought it was extra effort. I would highly recommend Mark!

Nick is highly skilled, really listens to what needs to be done, observant (saw things we missed) and meticulous in his work. We have experienced way too many “handyman” disasters over the years and just don’t get things done. We were thrilled to find that Nick was the “real deal”!! . We needed to have him complete our partial deck bench with an extension to also cover the hot tub. He built a perfect mirror image and it looks wonderful like it had been there forever! We also need a recently painted interior wall repaired, that the prior painter just painted over. It looked awful and Nick repaired it with “mud”, sanded and repainted. Now it looks like new and the room is beautiful. He did the work in record time, cleaned up and always pleasant. Nick is thorough, communicates well and was always on time. The other important part of “Gillaspie Handyman-Building and Maintenance” is Kimberly, Nick’s wife. She was in contact with me during the whole process with updates and follow-up. A rare commodity is this type of business. I have a list of additional jobs that I would only have Nick do for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer him for any new construction or home repairs. He is very talented, honest and a true professional!

Steven made himself available immediately to stop by house and give us a quote. We needed a full yard trimming with some tree removal. His price was very fair and his crew did an outstanding job. I plan to use him for ongoing maintenance and future landscaping.

Justin and his crew did an amazing job on our yard! This was a big job to include irrigation, sod, new plants/mulch and outdoor lighting. They were professional, responsive and very hard working! We are actually going to extend the job to add some additional landscaping around our pool and considering switching to 360 for our lawn maintenance.

It went better than I ever expected.. I was so pleased with Soney’s professionalism and also, his assistants. They took pride in their work and did a lovely job. If you need stone or brick work.. look no further.. Stoney’s price was extremely reasonable and he was easy to communicate with. I have to admit I was a bit of a “high maintenance” customer. The following day the work was performed I saw a couple of other bricks I wanted repointed that I should have brought to Stoney’s attention while he was at my property so I called him to let him know. I expected for him to get frustrated and charge additional seeing how that was a conversation that I should’ve had during time work was performed, however, to my surprised he says: “that’s fine, I will come over there during the week and take care of it for you.”

Kevin McKoy is OUTSTANDING. He is fair and honest. His forte is lawn care, however, he has a wide resource of networks to extend his services for his customers. I initially contacted McKoy's Lawn Care & Maintenance to give a quote on a fence/gate project. The fence/gate projected expanded to front lawn repair, french drain and flower bed installation. Then he did a full back yard makeover: rock path, lawn, tree & plant installation, flower bed preparation, connecting gutter pipes to drain properly, and large flower/garden beds. In addition, when there was a slight tweak (correction), he was accommodating and ensured that the fix was completed satisfactorily. I would recommend Kevin McKoy.

Great experience! Was timely with coming out and giving a quote and has completed "phase 1" of the work (clearing out a bed, re-working a large roughed-in area, trimming hedges)--work completed and I am extremely satisfied. Once spring gets here, will be adding low-maintenance plants/shrubs and has already sent pictures of his ideas for approval. Spencer has a "good-eye" and am looking forward to continuing to work with him!! Cost is extremely reasonable!!!

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!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
