If you require a landscaper/horticultural knowledgeable person – Spencer Gordon with his Anu Landscaping Design are fantastic – I highly recommend his services. With his understanding of plants, shrubs and trees Spencer has the ability to suggest re-design and do maintenance turning any yard into an area of beauty. My experience has been very positive – we are going about changes methodically with on-going maintenance. Gordon has replaced many of the shrubs around my home – he designed and installed a decorative drainage system that solved a major water problem in my yard. I would not hesitate giving Spencer any outdoor project including irrigation and landscape lighting– let him come up with ideas ……….

I didn't think I had many options for a garden in my uptown condo but Philip was able to come up with a beautiful arrangement of planters for my terrace garden. Overall, very happy with the service.

    Knowledgeable, practical, and eco-minded - that is what I love about Betty Houston and her landscaping/gardening services. She has years of training and knowledge so she is a virtual encyclopedia of plants, plant diseases and cures. She has a "keep-it-simple" plan - so the landscape/garden is easy to maintain. And Betty LOVES keeping the earth safe from the overuse of chemicals. Betty helped us years ago with a solution to stop rain water from washing away an embankment. Last year she diagnosed and treated a fungus on our azaleas. This year she helped us design a unique raised bed garden for our pier on Lake Norman. How innovative! I highly recommend Betty for your landscaping and garden needs.

    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.
