I hired David to help with a clean up in my backyard. It was a surprise for my husband while we were on vacation. From the beginning he was very easy and honest to deal with. He kept me updated while he was working on his progress. My husband was speechless when we came home to a brand new backyard. It was so clean! No more rusty sheds, shrubs, tiles from construction etc. It was more then I could of asked for! We will definitely be using him again for our projects & I highly recommend him to anyone looking for great prices & a hard worker

We initially hired Douglas for landscaping services, installation of top soil and sod. We subsequently hire him to replace fencing in need of repair. The services were done professionally, timely and correctly the first time. All work promised was completed and on time. I would not hesitate to hire Douglas again in the future.

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

A. O'Reilly Landscaping met all our landscaping needs, what started as a simple weekly grass mowing turned into a complete patio redesign and landscape refresh. The quality of work is what you would expect from a large landscape company but from a small growing business. I would definitely recommend A. O'Reilly Landscaping to family and friends.

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.
