"Here is what one of our customers wrote about us,Review by Greg W. in Matawan, NJProject:Install Brick or Stone Patios, Walks, and StepsUnited Corporate of NJ is a very professional, detailed, reliable and knowledgeable company. The crew and staff are extremely honest, and pay very close attention to every detail. I did my homework and met with multiple paver companies and United Corporate of NJ out-shined them all. I am very happy with the project they completed, and I am very glad I went with this company. They don't just do the minumum. They go above and beyond and use top of the line materials. There prices are also very reasonable and fair. The project they completed was a 1100 sq. ft patio with a fireplace, and a section for my BBQ with the entire patio outlined in a border. Also, bullnose steps off my patio door leading to the patio. First off, Tony spent 1-2 hours at my house, and laid out each detail and answered everyone of my concerns and questions. His display shop is well layed out, and he spend another hour with me going over the materials and colors. Marvin, the head contractor was outstanding. He met with me everyone morning and evening, to go over any questions or concerns I had and even provided me with recommendations. He was a very patient and skilled man. Lastly, the team. These guys work hard. They put in eight hours a day for 7 days straight, and got the project done on time. They are very skilled, and did not make one error. I could go on and on about the work, the team and everything else. All i can say is, "Hard work, and work done right is hard to find these days", But United Corporate of NJ does is BEST. I highly recommend this company. OUTSTANDING JOB ALL AROUND! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!"

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.
