I would highly recommend Kennedy and Sons for your moving needs. I had an extremely heavy and awkward piece of equipment that needed to be moved from the driveway to the lower level of my home. Dustin and his son were able to accommodate the transition very well. They were prompt to respond to my request, they showed up on time, and handled everything very professionally. Great work!

Because I recently became disabled I was no longer able to properly take care of my flower beds and shrubbery. I contacted Just Perfect Lawns and Lou came out and assessed my needs and gave me an estimate. I promptly hired them and work began on my weedy flower beds and overgrown shrubs. The completed job is awesome and I will not hesitate to hire them again for any yard/garden work I may need.

Needed some drainage to a backyard that drained poorly after the bigger rains. Had 3 people look at the job. Joel recommended by far the simplest, easiest, and it turned out cheapest way to handle the problem. He went to work and in about 3-4 hours it was done. Ever since then have NOT had the drainage problem. His solution worked to "a T"! He also had exemplary workers with him. He also recommended and planted 3 fruit trees for a small yard and delivered some compost (minus the dreadful chemicals!). Would highly recommend Well Rooted Gardens.

Dan was very punctual and got back to me right away. It was great knowing I could count on someone to take care of my parent's lawn from 500 miles away. He could not complete an area at time of service due to neighbor's sprinklers but he came back and finished it the next day. Most providers wouldn't go out of their way to do that, but he did! Thanks, Dan!

Dave, Mike, and the crew were great to work with. They walked us through the entire process for our backyard patio/landscaping job and made some great design suggestions along the way. We can't wait to have them back to landscape the front yard.

Plantz at first was slow to start because the rain held him up but after he started the project came together. What I liked was the price compared to other Landscape contractors prices that were through the roof! I mean I got one estimate for nearly $5000, You not only get quality work but a very good price.

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.
