Excellent company with great work ethics. Anthony carefully reviewed in detail, all the landscape work to be done in our backyard, the specific equipment to be used, including the soil removal and "layering" process to assure long term results. Our project was over 3,000 square feet. If we could, we would definitely recommend this company with a 6-star rating.

Thank you to Thumbtack for helping me find this amazing company. His prices are very reasonable, he is very reliable, very easy communication and notification after he services the property. He even goes above and beyond, I have furniture in my backyard and he always moves to make sure that he cuts under it. Highly Recommend!

I hired PEF to do some hardscaping in the front and never doubted they did everything possible to make me happy. I can be picky from time to time and they did a great job stopping to make sure my vision came to life. Would I hire again... already did to do some more hardscaping in my backyard. I will refer to friends and family!

We had an old backyard which needed a complete overhaul. We knew what we wanted but didn’t know how to design it. I found Javier thru a friend and he responded immediately. He is honest and has a creative mind for design and detail. He stands behind his work and the work quality was excellent. The crew really cared about details. I've seen them redo things to get it just right. Javier gave us good suggestions in terms of design and materials. I believe his estimate was fair and completed the job in a timely fashion. We have worked with him on several other projects and have been very pleased with the results. He helped us conceive the designs, offered many new ideas, helped us select materials and plants, and executed with an eye for detail. He was open to our feedback along the way and made adjustments with ease. Once the job was complete, he was responsive to our follow-up questions and requests. He takes customer satisfaction very seriously. Javier seems to really care about his business, and that people get good service. We look forward to working with him again!

Louhaul Junk Removal gets a two thumbs up for me!! They were expected to do my garage demolition in 2 days however it only took 1 day! They arrived early, worked 8 hours in the rain and did more than just removed my garage! They cleaned the garage, removed the badly damaged privacy fence and made my backyard look so clean and big! I would recommend them to anyone! Their friendly yet professional demeanor was very refreshing! Thanks Sidney for restoring my faith in black owned business!

Trevor had the best value of all the landscapers we contacted. We had a tough backyard job that Trevor handled nicely. We are installing a new fence and wanted to extend it to the limits of our property line. However, there was a ton of brush, dead stumps, vegetation, stones, etc., making it impossible for installation. Trevor was able to thoroughly clear out the back yard area despite multiple obstacles. It now looks really good and ready for fence installation. We appreciated that he could accommodate our requests. He was patient and professional. We'll definitely be using his services again for future projects. Thanks to his hard work, we'll be able to expand our fenced property by nearly 1000 sq ft.

Five years ago, we hired Moore Landscaping to lay a patio in our backyard. It turned out beautifully, made with brick pavers in a herringbone pattern. It still looks like new. The workmanship was precise and neat. The job was accomplished on time and on budget. We have since used them for smaller scale gardening projects. We would highly recommend Moore Landscaping.

I am not one to write a review unless I feel it is well deserved but Productive Construction Services LLC has exceeded my expectations! Tony was able to salvage my backyard project that was ruined from a previous contractor. Tony was upfront and honest with me throughout the whole phase of the project from offering recommendations on how to give me a finished product but and looking to ways to be cost efficient. I would highly recommend using PCS on any and all future projects from home renovations to landscaping needs. It's a relief knowing I can count on and trust Tony and PCS to get the job done right the first time!

It all started six years ago with an overgrown, unkept patch of potential that would eventually provide ongoing beauty throughout the seasons. We first met Jose when he & his crew delivered a Katsura to our home. Not only did he lead the install with meticulous care, but he checked on its progress beyond his contract obligations. From that point on we've received such attention to detail that he's contributed to many installs, clean ups, stonework, bed design, plantings & yearly maintenance.

I had a big tree in the front trimmed, an overgrown area cleaned out, and several shrubs removed in my backyard. Cambria services did a fantastic job!! I hardly ever leave reviews but I was so impressed with the services I received today that I just had recommend them. From the initial visit to the end of the job, they were easy to work with and I was given top notch customer service. They are also very reasonable! I was given much higher quotes by 2 other landscapers. I will definitely be using Charles and Cambria services for all future landscaping.

We hired Jose’s company to weed, clean out and cut back the front of our home. We also had him do the side and back yard. He removed some large bushes and a 40 foot tree branch that broke off my neighbors tree and landed in our backyard. Our front and back yard now look great. Nice and clean. And with the bushes removed there’s more room for our dogs to play and fewer places for them to hide. I highly recommend Estrada Landscaping. I could not be happier.

    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.
