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 and his team of 4 did a great job building our patio in a difficult spot of our backyard. Around our pool/deck area. He offered me ways to save money and even worked with my budget. He didn’t nickel and dime me and even bought me some material without charging. He gave suggestions about how to further improve the backyard landscaping even though I didn’t employ him for that reason. Thanks brother I will certainly use you again.

Yard By Yard Landscaping did the landscaping on my property for the first time today. I am very satisfied with the work. The lawn was mowed and edged, and they did a good job of cleaning up the clippings from the walkway and road. I was quoted a fair price and received excellent service. I recommend this company with enthusiasm.

I’m so so glad I found Daniel! I wanted to put up lighting in my backyard but hadn’t no idea how to accomplish it. Daniel was prompt, professional, and gave thoughtful advice about options to consider and the pros and cons based on design and how it might feel in the space. He then drew up a sketch to map it out and plan what we would need. He came back the very next day and the end result of his work was beyond anything I could have imagined. He even helped me do some last minute planting while there because I had some plants waiting to go in. His work is clean, precise and very professional and a great value. He’s also kind, friendly and clearly has the mind of an engineer + designer, a rare combo to find. I plan to hire him back in the spring to help me with landscaping. Highly recommend!

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

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.
