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

I would highly recommend Jared Born and his team for any of your landscaping or lawn care needs! My project was pretty big task. Our house is on the corner so we have a front yard, a side yard and a back yard. Our lot is fairly large for our area. In April my husband, who has always maintained our yard, went back on active duty with the military leaving me to keep up with the mowing and trimming. At the end of May I injured my wrist and was not allowed to use it and I didn't have anyone to come take care of the yard so it grew pretty out of control. By the time I was able to mow again the grass and weeds had grown too tall for our push mower to handle. It looked horrible and I didn't know what to do about it. It was embarrassing. A coworker told me about thumbtack so I signed up and Jared responded and had someone out within days. They did an amazing job for a more than fair price. They are professional and fast and if I ever need help again they will be my first call. Born's Landscape and Lawn Care Services is great company!

Mike Watts and his crew came over promptly when I requested an estimate. I needed massive clean up of all my flower/landscape beds. The estimate was fair and what I had anticipated. The work was immaculate. Truly, I could not have asked for more prompt, efficient, and excellent service. All my friends and family are raving about our yard. Highly recommend to others. We will hire Mike again! Thank you Watts & Co.!

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!!

I highly recommend Safe Guard Renovations and its owner David Rogers, we have worked with many contractors over the years, but Dave and his team were without a doubt exceptional! All of his staff was courteous, knowledgeable and efficient, they answered questions and concerns we had and made adjustments at the last minute. As a small business owner ourselves, we know how difficult it is to keep great employee's, Safe Guard and Dave were great and we will be recommending them and using them for a long time. Ed Wolf

We needed our landscaping cleaned up before putting it on the market. Troy totally understood what we needed. He gave us a great quote and it looks fantastic. He even offered moving existing plants to areas that needed more. Thank you.

He did a great job redoing the landscaping in my backyard which included removing the grass, putting sand and lava rocks with solar lighting. He was very helpful with coming up with design ideas and was fast and prompt. I’d hire him again!

Great experience. Matt understood the vision I had for my front yard landscape; it came out beautifully! I had new soil put down, mulch, shrubs, trees, and perennials installed. Easy to work with and very knowledgeable. His team did a really good, clean job with the layout and putting it all together. Props to all involved!

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.

Talarico & Sons provided great customer service during the quoting process, promptly answered all of my questions, came right out the next day to look at my yard and submit their quote. Started cutting the following week as per my request and did a great job on the lawn. I'm looking forward to enjoying my patio & yard this summer without doing all of the work myself.

Brian was great to work with especially since I had already purchased my stones. He gave me one of the best quotes, made sure that I understood all aspects of the project, always kept me informed of the start date (weather plays a big factor) and made sure that I was going to be happy with the final product. Brian also made sure to point out items that I may want in the future to make sure I accounted for those items now making it easier. I would recommend Aura Landscaping to anyone looking for a company that prides themselves in customer service.

Mike is very nice, thorough, and personal. His prices were the best around and he did more than other landscapers have done and for less.

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.
