I recently had a tree come down in my yard. I called Dave and he made himself available to remove the tree as quickly and efficiently as possible. He is professional and talented. He was able to dice the tree, the branches, and brush and remove it off my yard with ease. It would have taken me a week to do what he did in a day and a half, and that's saying alot because I'm a builder and carpenter . I work around people like Dave everyday and he is without a doubt a top notch worker but even more important a top notch guy.

I originally wanted one hedge (5-ft) removed and another 12 ft hedge trimmed. Ozzy determined that he could cut the 5ft hedge level with the ground but would not be able to get the roots and stumps completely. I agreed to him cutting it level with the ground because the hedge was large enough to partially block my view when driving in or out of my driveway and I felt it was unsafe. We negotiated the price and he did not want a down payment. Actually, he said that I could pay when he's finished and I am satisfied with his work. He started on Tuesday and came back today (Thursday) to complete the work. He cleaned up all the waste and removed it. He also trimmed a tree in front of my house and sprayed some pesky weeds on my sidewalk and driveway. Ozzy is a pleasant fellow and I would definitely use his services again.

Gardening is a great joy to me, but I've been so busy with work my beloved backyard grew completely out of control. Joel and his team saved the day -- they weeded by hand, shaped overgrown bushes and trimmed trees, hauled all the garden waste away and left my place beautiful. Will definitely call him again!

I chose Wide Stone Outdoor Services because I was immediately impressed by the responses and large landscaped estate photographs that landscaper Javier Torres placed on Thumbtack. I have certainly not been disappointed. I was so glad to find that he was willing to do my much smaller job. The work he did on my 55+ Adult community property was outstanding. I live on a golf course and everyone who passed remarked on the night and day difference my beautiful corner property now displays. Javier was personable and so very accomplished: in one day, he has literally transformed my entire landscaping: He refreshed and removed limbs from my older( but still able to flower) lovely ornamental cherry tree, and so, enabled sunshine to penetrate to our front lawn area. There, he laid sod and placed a sprinkler on a timer. My poor cherry tree was suffocating, in what I thought was a simple ivy, however, it was nothing less than poison ivy, climbing high up on the trunk of the tree. Javier's staff removed the poison ivy, treated the area where it had been growing, leveled it, cleaned up the rock border, mulched, and added a lovely selection of autumn marigolds around the base of my tree. He trimmed my pachysandra back, laid the sod on the now sunny lawn near that area, cleaned up and refreshed the small stone areas in my slider balcony areas; added azaleas on the side garden, after cleaning up, leveling, mulching and landscaping the long side Russian sage and azalea garden under my Japanese cherry tree. In the back facing the golf course he removed weeds, cut back and enormous holy and cleaned out a plot that we can now use for our big outdoor grill. Javier also added underground drains to all our downspouts, which will dissipate the rainwater and keep squirrels and chipmunks out of the spouts. We plan to use Wide Stone again throughout the year, and I know that my neighbors, who asked for his information, will call upon him too. Be sure to get extra business cards from Javier at Wide Stone Outdoor Services, you'll need them.

Douglas did a makeover with the wilderness that was taking over our house. He was responsive, listened to what we wanted and was able to deliver it in an impressive amount of time. In just two days our outdoor space went from a weed infested crazy yard to a beautiful outdoor space where we can actually entertain. We were able to workout a design that could fit our budget while still adding charm. His wife also has a good eye and will make suggestions is you are not sure what you want to achieve as end result. His employees were very friendly and did a couple of things that they saw was needed regardless of it being quoted or not (taking down a decaying branch from our tree). They were responsive, fast and respectful. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would use them again.

VERY RESPONSIVE AND GOT JOB DONE IMMEDIETELY WHEN WE HAD A CRISIS! We had a tree fall due to storm and it was pressing against the house. Posted job late in day and he called me immediately, went by the job next morning, gave me a fair price and was working and job completed by next day. We deal with hundreds of contractors a year and I wish more had this type of communication and follow through. A+ from us - VinMak Asset Management Group

Matt and his team did a fantastic job. As an arborist, he is very knowledgeable about tree care and health. He came out and provided a detailed quote, and discussed options on treating a diseased tree. Showed up on time for both the quote and the subsequent work. Professional, knowledgeable, personable, and skilled, I highly recommend US Tree Care.

As part of the name states--LANDCARE and Anthony certainly took pride in his work as well as I did, in the finished product that he produced for my backyard. His customer service in informing me of the work schedule was outstanding. My wife and I are very pleased with his work and work ethic that I highly recommend you consider this firm for your gardening needs. I have told Anthony that I will be switching to his company for my landscaping needs next season. I am currently under contract with another landscaper and it would not be right that I cancel. I told Anthony the situation and he agreed. Next year I am definitely going to sign on with ACLandCare. The above is my experience with ACLandCare as of July 21, 2018, and I hope my experience helps some other homeowner who wants quality and dependability. Jerry Kearney Massapequa Park, NY

Punctual, and very professional. Came with his crew and they cut three trees completely down, and some additional branches. The guys worked hard, with no disturbance, and cleaned up amazingly, you couldn't even tell anyone was at the property a few minutes ago cutting 80 foot trees! Pricing was also extremely fair. Highly recommend, and definitely will hire for additional gardening, landscaping and tree cutting services.

Greenwood Robinson did a complete makeover for our 20X50 backyard in Brooklyn, including fencing and tree removal and with no direct access. Sam was extremely creative and innovative throughout the entire process. He had a great team as well, that we enjoyed working with. They followed through on time commitments and communicated well regarding any changes required. We highly recommend Greenwood Robinson. You will not be disappointed.

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.
