Very professional and helpful Peloncito crew. They did exactly what needed to be done based on what I requested, and did it very well using the right equipment for the job. They worked very efficiently on a Sunday afternoon - same day I contacted them. I will be working with Peloncito again for landscaping and yard clean up in the future. They really are a breath of fresh air. The only downside is that they are not set up to receive credit cards. If they had been I would have requested more work yesterday. Thank you, Peloncito and your crew!

Dave came to clean our gutters. He was on time and did an excellent job. He cleaned up after himself and made sure not to destroy any of our shrubs and trees. He also made sure the downspouts were all unclogged and working properly.

We are very pleased with the job Tapps Lawn Care and Landscaping did for us ! Trey was punctual responding to our request to discuss taking out our former front yard flower bed and changing it into a lower maintenance arrangement of azelias and a Japaneze maple. We loved the plants he selected and his assistant, Keith, did a fantastic job of spacing them in the existing garden plot after tilling up the soil. Trey was also concerned about finishing the job in a timely fashion so arranged to come out a day earlier than we had planned to avoid the rain that was forecast. Trey also provided some helpful advice for maintaining the new plants while Keith did a great job spreading pine needles across several beds of established plantings in our front yard. We would not hesitate to call on Tapps Lawn Care and Landscaping the next time we need assistance with any special plans for our yard. These new plantings make a lovely statement and we are sure they will turn many heads! April W.

Stone, Soils and Shrubs were an absolute pleasure to work with. We contacted Jason Taylor on a Thursday, he came out to our house first thing Saturday morning and completed the work within a week's time. And the work was PERFECT. He and his team of guys could not have been better. From the initial consultation with Jason, it was clear that he loves what he does and also, that he totally gets what the consumer is looking for. We had a significant water issue in our backyard and Jason helped come up with a game plan and also gave really great ideas for things we could do in our front yard in terms of beautification. And his team of guys carried this out so precisely and wonderfully. We HIGHLY recommend Jason Taylor and Stone, Soils and Shrubs and really look forward to working with them again in the future for all of our lawn/landscaping needs.

Matt was quick to respond to my search in thumbtack and listened to the issues and offered to come and give an estimate. He came to look it over on very short notice, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and was able to provide a quote for me almost immediately that I could present to the business. I am absolutely thrilled with not only Matt’s knowledge and expertise, but also his speed, flexibility, and courtesy. I would definitely recommend Matt for any of your grading and landscaping needs!

Hired LA Designs after being scammed out of my money by Pride Landscaping. LA Designs worked with us to gain our trust and fix what was done incorrectly. LA Designs had no problem going behind another company and fixing all the issues and working with us to design new plans for landscaping. They stand behind their workmanship and kept their word. I would hire them again.

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.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

How do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

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.
