Very nice, helpful guys. They actually came a couple of days sooner than originally planned! Did an excellent job with mulching the front & two sides of the house & cleared my patio of moss, grass & weeds - it looks like it did when we first had the patio installed! Reasonable rates. Would recommend them to anyone - already recommended them to my realtor for her clients who are looking for landscaping services

The professionalism and personality of Mike and his team were more than we anticipated. He listened to our ideas and provided prudent, and varied options for us to achieve what we had envisioned. I can't emphasize enough how great these guys were to work with! They were timely, economical and obviously know the landscaping business. Even though a brand new baby arrived at the beginning of the contract Mike and his team were engaged and on the job the entire time! They have followed up with us just to see how the plants are progressing and to make sure we have no questions. So happy with the outcome, and highly recommend Hook & Ladder Landscaping.

I hired Johnston Home Improvment to build a fire wood shed based on a photograph. I got extactly what I asked for, on time and paid the price I was quoted. The owner is very personable, has a strong work ethic and delivers a quality product. I plan using his skills for a master bath re-do. I strongly recommend this contractor.

Frank is willing to do almost any kind of work. He is conscientious about doing it right and gets to work promptly. If he is going to be delayed or thinks the weather will interfere with working he always calls to let us know. He has done gardening, landscaping, junk removal, rototilling, delivered loads of rocks and mulch. He has helped with installing an awning. Frank has a positive attitude and is in good physical condition so he works fast. His services don't come cheap, but he is worth it.

Todd and his crew from Syracuse Lawn and Maintenance did a phenomenal job! They completed the job in one day and it came out exactly how we wanted. We spoke with 6 other landscaping companies before making our decision and SL&M was perfect. Reasonably priced and very quick. Just beautiful!! 5 stars highly recommend!

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.
