Adam and his crew removed the grass and some large bushes from my backyard and converted it to an attractive rock yard in just two days. Adam helped me with the design, and it turned out just great! No more lawn watering or lawn mowing for me! Excellent work!

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!

Good communication, both by text and in-person assessing the job. Accurate estimate on time to complete project. Seemed knowledgeable and was very patient with all the questions I had. Cleaned up the work area after the project was complete. I plan to call Brownscapes again for other landscaping projects.

I am so happy I found Marcelo’s lawn and cleaning services! My yard was such an eye sore and I had no idea where to begin with it, and Marcelo came in and cleaned and fixed it up spectacularly! He definitely got himself a client for whenever I need my lawn maintained in the future.

We asked Arthur to get rid of a huge pile of trash in our back yard from spring cleaning. They cleaned the yard without any problems hauling away tree branches, bikes, miscellaneous junk, a huge backyard pool and all the poles, it's amazing what they took. They were fast efficient and pleasant. They even raked the whole yard after. We couldn't have been more pleased with their work. We will definitely use them for future projects. .

Amazing company to work with! I am very glad we were approached by Gary on Thumbtack for our project. He's very responsive, as is his entire team. They were able to install a beautiful new lawn in our backyard. Along the way, they discovered two broken valves in our backyard, which we had them fix as well. The attentiveness and care they take is amazing! They are all extremely personable, and the way the entire team interacts with one another is like a huge family. We will definitely be hiring them again!

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.
