Adam and his team did an exceptional job on landscaping my yard. He brought plenty of ideas and suggestions, which other companies did not do. The price was fair and not overpriced like competitors. He was prompt in answering my questions and very informative. Even last minute requests to change/add anything was handled by him with ease. He even went above and beyond by placing flowers in my empty flower bed! I am very pleased with the end result and I will be calling him for future projects. I now look forward to hanging out in my new beautiful backyard!

Great job, all nice guys! They even stayed afterwards and did a separate job for hire to clean up dog poop in the backyard. Manny seems very experienced and professional and I felt like my stuff was in great hands. Best experience with movers that I've had to date!

We had a very friendly and helpful experience with Brownscapes and Design. Jason put in a drip line for various shrubs and plants in our yard. In the end, I feel it was pricey for the work that was done- I thought that there would be more areas of our yard reached with the drip line. But overall, it seems to be working well and we're happy we did it.

Gary was responsive to our needs during a 3 week project on our backyard including an irrigation system, sod, grading, retaining wall, and cement sitting area. We made a few changes during the process and it went smoothly. The crew was professional and did a nice job of cleaning up after themselves when they finished. I would use his services again and recommend them to others.

Jeff and his crew removed a garden style tub, and installed a walk-in bathtub. They were very professional, the work is guaranteed, and using Roadrunner Repairs saved almost 50% compared to what a local home design company wanted to charge for doing the project.

    Nigel and his team at Landmark were awesome! I have a pretty big back yard and it was all mud and dirt! Nigel came up with a design and it turned out beautiful! We are so pleased with how it came out. Max the foreman constantly kept us in the loop and the whole crew always took great care when accomplishing the design work. I recommend Landmark wholeheartedly!

    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.
