Fausto did an excellent job on my lawn. He came by on short notice and it didn't take him long to do the job. I would use his services again and recommend him to others.

We hired Jaime to do multiple landscaping jobs at our house from weeding, mulching, planting, etc. Jaime gave us the best rate and was so easy to work with! I really appreciate how responsive he was and how quickly he got the job done. He made sure we were happy with the work and went above and beyond! I will certainly hire him again for any and all of our landscaping needs!

My Husband and I recently bought our very first new home and it is on about .76 Acres. We had tall weeds of different varity. Larry returned my call within 30 min. of leaving my message and scheduled to come out the next day. Larry and Thomas gave us a really nice mow, weed sprays, edging and blowing.. all for a very nice price. Larry is fair, honest and an all around good person. As our new home has very few plants except in the front and a young maple tree.. Larry will mulch, plant plants and more! I will definately recommend and use Larry and his services of D & L Lawn Service/Landscaping LLC. A very please customer! Terri and Steven Youmans

My entire experience with Stone, Soil and Shrubs has been excellent. I’ve happily contracted lawn service with this company for about ten years. The monthly service plan we have includes all mowing, trimming, all fertilizer and chemical applications, all pruning, and twice yearly seeding as needed. In addition to this, we’ve also retained them to provide a la carte services such as resolving drainage issues, tree removal, hardscaping, sodding, and the planting and transplanting everything from annuals to trees to entire beds. They are reasonably priced for the high level of service they provide and they are responsive to any query or complaint—and those are rare. Most of my immediate neighbors have used them either on contract or for single-service jobs. I have never heard a complaint. It isn’t hard to find someone to mow your lawn. It is very hard to find someone who will treat it like their own, and not take shortcuts.

Dallas came out and knocked out 20 pallets of sod for me. Also did a lot of plantings and trees then finished it off with mulch and pine straw. The project finished just in time for my party just like he said. Excellent work!

Carmen Nagel at Raleigh Lawn & Landscape gave me by far the best price out of 5 local tree services to remove a huge oak that was looming over my house. He was able to come out the same week that I set up the appointment, and the tree was gone and the yard was clean by the time I got home. Thanks Raleigh Lawn & Landscape.!

This is the 2nd time I had Treemenservices help us. This time I requested for 4 Thuja trees to be planted in my backyard for privacy. Treemenservices sent one professional and he did an outstanding job despite of the hot temperature outside. The professional gave us instructions for care when the job was completed and the 4 trees are doing well since being planted. Thank you!

Adam Fitch and his team at AMA Landscape Design have completely changed how I feel about the exterior of my home. For the first 8 years of living in our home, the topic of our lawn and "curb appeal" was a sore subject. Our home is on a fairly small lot, so landscaping and maintenance should've required minimal work from the start. However, our property sits on soil that is largely made up of clay and gravel, and the yard itself slopes away from our home. Needless to say, nothing wanted to grow/survive, regardless of which plants or breeds of grass we chose. Year after year, we remained the only home on our street with an eyesore of a yard. That all changed when we started working with Mr. Fitch and his team. After an easy first consultation regarding our needs and budget limitations, the crew at AMA got to work. One year later, I am happy to say that we've got curb appeal, no drainage nightmares after every thunderstorm, and most importantly: I'm thrilled to invite company to our home. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and RESULTS we've had since working with Mr. Fitch. To top it all off, my budget stayed intact and we're already looking forward to new projects with AMA this spring.

Rita created a unique plan for my front yard which included many flowering perennials, and the end result of her installation of the plants was beautiful. She has a great eye for mixing colors and textures and takes care to choose specimens that will do well in the specific sunlight exposures. She is easy to collaborate with and listens to the customer's needs and ideas to transform them to a well-designed reality. I will be working with her again for the remainder of my yard.

I initially hired the provider based on his quote (hundreds of dollars below the next highest quote) and responsiveness (came out on a Monday after posting the project Sunday night). Jose was punctual, communicated well about my needs, and did a great job with planting around 100 plants all over my yard. He did so well, I hired him on the spot to do monthly maintenance at three homes I own.

Sam Davis is fantastic - my shrubs have never looked so good. I thought I’d have to rip them out and re-plant. He’s saved me so much money and time because I had been trying (and failing) to do the pruning on my own. Take it from me - call Sam before you waste your weekend doing a mediocre job! Hire a professional!

    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.
