Kevin was punctual and very easy to work with. We were in dire straights as our backyard had grown to almost 2 feet tall while we were on vacation. Within 24 hours of us contacting him, Kevin had it completely mowed and the trimmings cleaned-up! We would definitely use his services again!

Wonderful experience. Needed a shed bulldozed and a deck built. Completed both within a week. Very reasonably priced and invoice was easy to understand. Also has great ideas about design - helped choose sunlamps for the deck and they match perfectly!

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.

I wanted to start by saying The Work exceeded my expectations. We had an area in our backyard that was overgrown and needed to be cleared out. We also had some bushes that needed to be planted and a tree that needed to be moved. They cleared it out and did a wonderful job! I would refer them to anyone and use them again!

I was very happy with my Zoysia install. A very friendly professional company that took time before and during the install to explain things to me. Did a great job leveling and grading my backyard and was very particular in making sure the yard was graded properly. After prepping my yard the day before they were back bright and early ready for the sod delivery and install. They returned a couple days later to make sure my yard was rolled properly. I would definitely recommend 360 Lawn Care!!!

I really cannot say enough good things about these guys. In a word they were terrific! We needed a railing down to a garden path, which though at first glance a pretty simple project turned out to require some effective thinking and designing. They listened patiently and worked with us over several weeks to get it right from design to completion. And they persisted to make us happy. Turned out great. Outstanding and rare to see these days. Thanks Jack and Daniel!

He really did a great job and was able to do the work soon after quoting. Rob was friendly, knowledgeable, and communicated very well. The only reason I gave a 4/5 is the price. First let me say that my backyard was a mess. I have poison ivy, vines, overgrown trees and much more. However, it’s only a small portion of my back yard and I was quoted $775. That’s about $90/hour for the amount of time he was there. I’m by no means trying to discourage anyone from using Rob, he did a great job, but $90/hour may be quite steep for lawn work....that’s almost 3 times what I make with an engineering degree. In the end he knocked off $200 because I said I would do bagging up of the sticks and leaves. It only took me 1.5 hours to do...It doesn’t make sense to pay someone $100/hr to gather up sticks and put them on the curb.

Shawn was very professional from our first meeting all the way to the finished product. He installed a new irrigation system on our property. He answered my questions and made suggestions based on what we wanted out of our yard. We will definitely hire him again when we expand and add landscaping to our backyard.

Pro Cut provided a grass pathway through our new backyard. It is perfect; the edges are crisp and the seams in the sod are invisible. Pro Cut was timely, professional, neat, courteous and very competitively priced. I would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Contractor options offered through Landscape Design Guy not selected. Preferred going with a "known entity" (Pike Nursery) and a reasonably priced, single point of contact. Alignment with established contractors my work better.

Working with LA Design has been a wonderful experience. My yard was extremely neglected when I moved in and the landscaping and design that they did is absolutely gorgeous . My neighbors are constantly complementing me on how beautiful my front and backyard landscaping looks. They are also excellent at power washing and they also put in a French drain around the perimeter of my house averting the water from coming in my basement . The drain system they put in totally got rid of the rain water coming into my basement. I plan on using LA Design again and again!!

We were able to work with Covel Studio in the design development and construction documentation of our projects in different locations, Not only the designs were very clean and smart, but the documentation was clear and very professional at less than half the cost of a local architect / designer. The drawings provided were good for permitting as well as construction estimating and the contractors love them!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
