My experience with David was a great one! I had a lot of overgrown vines, branches, leaves all over my small yard. He cleaned it as though it was his own yard, and did an excellent job! I also had him to put some shelves in a small closet I turned into a pantry. He did an awesome job! I will definitely use David again

Joel arrived promptly and worked hard all day. He did a great job clearing brush, weeds and other debris from a yard that was neglected by the previous owner. We will hire him for other landscaping projects.

I found the experience of working with Mr. Rodas to exceed all my expectations of what Thumbtack might be able to offer. He was the first gardener and landscape professional to respond to my request, and each time he offered respect, kindness, and good advice, and willing to listen in a professional yet individual and caring manner. He carried through on what he offered. His gardening colleague Jack was as kind, hard working, and professional as Guillermo is. Despite a personal glitch in scheduling, Mr. Rodas did not give up or lose interest. His was willing to adjust to the budget I stretched to be able to afford for the gardening needs; and provided I believe exceptional value for money well spent. Watching him execute the finishing touches on placing the chosen plants around the property was the moment of magical transformation. They even worked through the rain. They have been an answer to my prayers. I recommend him at the highest level and feel it is a privilege and joy to have had his caring heart, expertise and vision of beauty for the yard I care for. Faithfully, Rev. Dr Victoria

Douglas and his team were fabulous! He extended our asphalt driveway with pavers, laid sod, and planted flowers with mulch in our front yard. Douglas was flexible with us when we ran into an issue involving a tree root and his wife was wonderful at deciding the placement of plants, size of extension, etc. He also picked a stunning paver color combination and has the best black mulch I’ve ever seen. A true professional and most importantly a wonderful person!

Luca, had to pull up sod that was dying, rebrick around some plants, plant grass seeds and place some mulch around 4 plants and a plant strip. He said he would be at my house by 8 a.m. He was outside working on my yard before 6:30 a.m. and completed the job before 9:30 a.m. Luca not only was on time, but he also did an excellent job. I intend to use his services for any landscaping job that I have. He comes highly recommended. Thank you Luca.😊

I have been working with Jose Calle and his crew for many years. He is reliable and the quality of is his work is very professional. He has done my yard work and snow removal for years. Most recently we had him do our patio with pavers and driveway apron. We are pleased with his work and after receiving several estimates from other companies, his pricing was very reasonable and fair.

Was in desperate need of a backyard makeover after buying my house 4 months ago and fighting nonstop to bring the yard back to life myself. I finally gave up and let the professionals handle it. Anthony, Chris and the team fought a downpour and delays but got the job done in a day, 1450ft of sod, planted grasses and plants and roses, mulched the flower beds, put in a walkway of blue stone pavers. I finally have a yard I am proud to look at. Cant wait to see it in about 2 weeks when the sod starts to grow and the plants roots take hold, thanks again guys

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
