As a contractor by trade I expect professionalism,honesty and quality when I hire someone to work at my home.Jimmy not only met all those qualifications but surpassed them.After receiving outrageous estimates from some of the major name garage door companies Suffield garage doors was next,after meeting Jimmy he was hired before he even gave me a price (which was extremely more reasonable)Jimmy was quick,clean and kept his word on the price,no surprises.I could not be happier with my new garage doors and the quality of work and service I received.Great overall experience and 5 stars for Suffield garage doors -Matt Fela

Rodney is one of the best contractors I have ever worked with. His craftsmanship was excellent and his prices extremely fair. He did a great job putting up new siding and also did work on one of our bathrooms. I would definitely recommend Rodney for all your contractor needs.

Robert was easy to communicate with; he responded via email and via telephone. He phoned to discuss the job I was requesting to have done. He was very professional to work with and did the landscaping job quickly. I would use him again.

We are so happy with the work that Joe did at our house. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He was very responsive to all our phone calls and texts. He is a very hard worker, and got our yard done in a matter of days. Our yard looks amazing, we couldn't have picked a better landscaper for the job. We highly recommend Town and Country Landscaping!!

GLGM was a pleasure to work with. They did mulching and some other odds and ends. Greg took the time to listen to exactly what I needed and made sure I was completely satisfied before they left. GLGM is reliable, knowledgeable, and did a great job. I finally found a company I can trust and rely on. I will be asking them back for future landscaping and maintainence needs.

GM and staff went above and beyond to help us with our projects. He was eager to help us with our silly questions and many projects we have going on. He installed drainage, created a 30+ ton gravel driveway, installed over 600' of 4 rail wood fencing and excavated a 900' creek to prevent flooding. We highly recommend GM Landscape Construction and plan to use them again with any future projects.

Our previous contractor left us high and dry. Adam bent over backwards to get us taken care of on very short notice. The quality of his work is outstanding and I would recommend him to anyone. This is the business you want!

Matt Dorenkott was very responsive when he contacted him through thumbtack. He came over the same and discussed what I wanted. I told I wanted 2 trees and possibly 3. He gave me a sighned contract and completion date we ran over a little due to weather. When he went to the nursery he sent pictures of the trees. He picked them up and had them installed within a day of picking them up. We are very happy with the trees and Matt and his crew good workmanship. We would recommend Dorenkott landscape to anyone very good company. Thanks Rich & LARRAINE.

Adams Landscape is a company that I look forward to hiring again. John is communicative, sets realistic expectations, charges very fair rates, does exceptional work efficiently and operates his business with professionalism and courtesy. It was an honor having John and his crew do a project at my home. I won't consider other companies after this unless John is unable to do the job. I would rather wait for this company than hire another. Outstanding experience, I will recommend this company to all of my friends.

Over the years I have used many landscaping companies and none of them come even close to Outerscapez! Ken and his staff treat your home as if it were theirs. They go way beyond your expectations for their VERY reasonable price! They are by far the most reliable, professional, skilled and thorough landscaping company I have ever used. I highly recommend them and give them an A+++ rating!

Tie Landscaping has been caring for my lawn since their inception. Jason and his crew are extremely reliable and consistent in work quality;Jason always communicates with me if there are any issues with my lawn that need to be addressed. He does not push services on his customers, and is straightforward about costs. He has done several larger projects for me that have been very successful, and he always follows up after completion. I highly recommend Jason and his company to anyone looking for good, honest, reliable and versatile landscaping services.

I hired CJ for a full kitchen remodel, involving updates to the layout and installation of a large glass tile wall, new cabinets, soapstone counters and oak shelving. I designed the concept and floor plan and CJ and his crew did a great job of executing the plans. CJ showed great attention to detail and quality in selecting materials and the results are beautiful - particularly the tile and stone. I work full-time and was not able to be present during much of the project but CJ and his crew took good care of my house; everything was kept clean and secure throughout the project and I was informed of progress and changes to plans. They were also great about accommodated my requests to secure open walls and work areas in the evenings for the safety of my cat. CJ was great to work with; I’d hire him 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.
