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!

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.

My backyard was overgrown with weeds, vines and shrubbery. Steven worked fast and cleared out all the brush including branches, vines, bushes & weeds. The backyard is now manageable for me to maintain on my own. Steven is very professional, nice and a hard worker. Thank you Steven for your hard work & the quick and thorough job you did. I very much appreciate it. Highly recommend.

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!!!

Gene was a professional and did an amazing job on our landscaping, irrigation and lighting project. It was a fairly large project and we were very happy with the results. He provided the details that we were looking for, from going to several different nurseries in Charlotte to find specific flowers and plants, thus providing us a variety of floral and plant arrangements that filled our front and backyard. He helped us find planter pots and unique plants that would sustain the Charlotte weather thru the 4 seasons. He then put in irrigation and drip system and we ended up doing lighting with Gene as well. Everything was itemized, invoiced and with fair pricing. Really great customer service overall. We plan to work with Gene on an ongoing basis to maintain the great work he just did for us.

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.

I have a difficult lawn to mow and my previous lawn service would scalp the lawn and leave rows of uncut grass. Brown's did a fabulous job of cutting and trimming. Glad I found him!

Our property looks 100% better after hiring Victor with Rosdahl's Lawn Care Services to mow and trim an exceedingly over-grown yard. The lawn looks smooth and even and the walkways/driveway are impeccably neat. Victor was extremely thorough, professional and personable. Also, Victor responded to my requests immediately and we were promptly able to schedule my project within a day. I highly recommend Rosdahl's Lawn Care Services for anyone whose project requires courtesy, professionalism and an attention to detail at a fair and reasonable price. I fully expect to call on Victor Rosdahl for my future lawn care projects. Thank you to Thumbtack for recommending this very capable service..very pleased. D. in Clover, SC

He communicated that he was running late, and mowed lawn while I was at work. When inspecting work morning after noticed that certain things were not done. He mowed over 3 plants of ours and did not trim weeds pictured or communicate that he could not weed eat them. Would not recommend unless situation is rectified with a refund and explanation for reasoning why some items quoted were not done. He was nice and professional in conversation but did not walk through with my roommate after job was finished.

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.

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.

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.
