Obed and his crew had quite the challenge with our hilly property, and we needed two different types of fencing installed. They went the extra mile to ensure the work met our standards and was completed within a reasonable time frame. We have already booked GMP Landscaping and Construction for additional projects. Great value for the price!

I’ve been looking for over a month for a professional landscaper. I am a new home owner and new to the area. I went through a few lousy and dishonest landscapers, but the Grass Guys have been great and professional. Hard working and get the job done. It’s nice to see that kind of spirit in the working world.

I hired Weymouth & Sons for several jobs, including junk removal, various handyman tasks, and landscaping. They will absolutely be my first call for any jobs in the future. Don't bother looking for anyone else; the quality of work and professionalism are top notch, and the competitive prices are more than reasonable for the value. Thank you for such prompt and terrific service!

I cannot say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Anibal and his exceptional crew. He exceeded every expectation that I had in terms of quality, increasing the size of his crew to finish earlier than he originally quoted, not nickel dimming me when it came to small changes that were made, and perhaps most valuable, demonstrating a keen sense of design to match His craft. It is rare these days to find trades people who care as much as Anibal does when it comes to satisfying his customer. I look forward to working with Anibal on future landscaping projects. A joy to work with

I called acorn landscaping to improve my front yard before I put my home on the market. They did an outstanding job even when it turned out to be a lot more work than they initially thought. The price was very fair and the work well done. There was a small miscommunication and Jairo did everything in his power to make it right! I would hire them again in a heartbeat! highly recommended!

We would recommend Mendez Irrigation without hesitation. We originally hired Juan to put in a stone patio, which required him to remove several large flowering shrubs. As requested, Juan and his men removed and bagged them in such a way that my daughter replanted them in her yard and is able to enjoy them. Then last minute we asked him if could do some landscaping around the yard. He placed a brick border in the front and side of our home, along with flowers, mulch and trimmed the shrubs. All this completed in approx. 2 days. Also we were very pleased the way he cleaned up before he left. The yard was hosed down, and swept up. Overall we are very pleased with the results and would hire him for future projects.

We were looking to have some landscaping done - but weren't sure on the pricing. Al was the first to contact us and gave us a very competitive price. He's honest and quick to get the job done. He's reliable and did a job well done that we've hired him to do the rest of our yard. I'm so glad we found him!

Darren responded right away and came out the next day to look over the job needed. We had shrubs that had grown way out of control! After talking with him we found extra areas of our yard that he could help with. His manner was professional, the value was great, and he did it all within a week. We are keeping his card for any future jobs!

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.

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.
