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.

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.

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!

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!

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 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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
