This is the third time that I've used this company. They did an excellent job cleaning my house and removed heavy pet stains from my carpet! I was pleasantly surprised, I had been trying to remove the stains for years. On the way out they noticed that my lawn needed cutting. They returned after a couple of days to cut it. I was so happy and pleased with this company. They took care of my house my carpet and my lawn all for the low low price of $235.00!!!!! Thank you CRiv!!

Brayan and his crew are very professional, friendly and timely. They did an excellent job explaining the details of the job. He worked within my budget to make the service affordable for me. Brayan was hired to lay down new sod and will also be hired to treat the backyard and maintain the front. Brayan followed up with me a few times to make sure I was happy and to see if I had any questions. Will definitely keep Garcia's Landscaping service as my new lawn care guys.

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.

Thank you very much for your quick respond and prompt arrival.

Shawn is outstanding and I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing irrigation repair. His promptness, knowledge, and professionalism allowed for me to have a complete understanding of what needed to be done and why. He is a man of his word and does exactly what he says he will do without trying to take advantage of you on cost. He did a great job of determining where the root cause of my leak was an completed the repair without completely destroying my yard. I appreciate his neatness to promptly clean the mess after digging and leaving my lawn in a reputable state that both my wife and I were completely satisfied with. He replied to my inquiry timely and showed up the next day to assess and begin the work. Do not pass on the opportunity to give Jones Homescapes a shot to earn your business! You won't be disappointed!

I'm so happy with the work done. Communication was outstanding. Everything was done professionally and with great care. I started with just shrub trimming and ended up using them for mulch, planting shrubs, and several small projects. I highly recommend this firm and their pricing is fabulous.

E.Z. Lawn Service was professional, informative, and fair-priced. Emery (owner) responded quickly and arrived on the agreed date. Emery’s work is impeccable and I’m ALWAYS very pleased with the work done. In fact, Emery manages my lawn all year all-around. My lawn is green during the winter months where as my neighbors grass is brown and dormant. As the season changes and things like aeration, seeding and fertilizing come into play, I can give Emery a call and all my questions are promptly answered via email, phone or in person. I would hire E. Z. Lawn Service; I’ve recommend them to all my friends!

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.

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.
