I have used Gillaspie Handman Building and Maintenance now for three different projects (primary residence and rental) including a roof replacement, internal work on two bathrooms (including tiling, dry-wall, painting), several door replacements and external painting (and pressure washing) and all three jobs were outstanding. Work was done as promised. If there were any issues that arose they would call and we discussed how to handle. Each time I did a walk through at the end of the project and if there were any punch-list items they were immediately addressed. Excellent work; would not hesitate to use again in the future.

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.

I needed some repairs done on my gutters. Brian was great. He showed up on time and was very professional and friendly. He made sure I understood what the problem was and what he was going to do to fix it. Its hard to find quality honest people in any type of "home maintenance" field, so I was very impressed. Highly recommended!

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.

Avery Saffo / Saffo Maintenance, and company were very prompt, responsive to needs of the project, and good at communicating as needed during their work. I would definitely recommend hiring them for lawn care, tree trimming, etc. Their prices were within range of what I am used to paying. I plan to use them again.

I came home from work to the misery of a hot house and a broken A/C unit. I reached out for help and Shelton responded immediately. I was afraid I would be forced to deal with the heat throughout the night due the issue being identified late in the day, but Shelton came out after the sun had gone down with his headlamp ready to work. He correctly identified the issue from my Thumbtack description and had it fixed in less than 10 minutes. He also identified another fault with my unit, which sure enough made itself known the very next day. I called and he came back and repaired that swiftly, as well -- all of this service delivered at a very reasonable price with a friendly, Kentucky accent. I would highly recommend Shelton for any HVAC issues.

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!!

Very pleased, contacted them for yard work which was not a conventional maintenance schedule, most contractors were willing to do the project, however, would raise the price once they were told it wasn't a weekly project....not this company. They went off what I wanted and when I wanted it and was more than easy to communicate with. Payment was easy, the lawn looks wonderful and I plan to continue to use them Wonderful experience, high recommend.

We had 9.5 yards of mulch spread in our back yard as well as a stone border placed around multiple garden beds for water diversion by Hunter Grounds. The work product was excellent. Sam Hunter is very professional. He is reliable and works very efficiently. He also made himself available to fulfill our requests in a very timely manner. We will definitely call Hunter Grounds again for future lawn needs and recommend them to others in the future!

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include 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.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.

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.

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.
