Lawn looked great. Needed a mow with my mower breaking down and they did a nice job and offered to mow the day after I posted a request for someone to mow my lawn. Also offered to do the job at a fair price.

We had a pool we needed filled in and had called several companies for a price. We were receiving quotes in the $8,000 range because it was a large pool and there was no truck access to the back yard. So, that meant lots of fill to be delivered and lots of time to truck the fill to the back yard. Jared was the only one who mentioned that there was enough fill that could be used from the hill in the backyard to fill the pool. That saved us 1/2 the cost of bringing the fill in. We were so glad we had him come out. He saved us lot's of money, did an excellent job and was always on time and did what he said he was going to do. Kind of rare these days. I would absolutely hire him again!

Justin of J&B Lawncare came to our house to do an estimate the same day we put our request on Thumbtack and was professional and courteous. We scheduled a time for them to come back and mow the lawn a couple days later and they did an awesome job...I definitely recommend J&B Lawncare!

I had sod placed. Beautiful job. You hear many stories about contractors etc, not showing up at a schedule time not with this company. Alex was on time for the estimate and when there was a delay in laying the sod due to rain I was notified. Would definitely recommend Lawns by Design.

Big Ox Pro Lawns has delivered a beautiful landscape for our home. They took care of everything in one day. After a few days, some plants were looking weak, and I send a picture and a message and a few days later everything was replaced to match the quality of what they had delivered since day one. A great company with personable service and care. We hope to work with them next year to add some more tress to the backyard and upkeep the rest of the landscaping. :)

We needed a lot of weeds pulled - and then some. We added a gravel patch for additional parking and significantly cut back the creeping honeysuckle, vines, and general jungle that had sprung up. Plant Cincinnati did a great job. They were timely, professional, friendly, and the yard looks great. They were knowledgable and we really couldn't be happier. Next time we need landscaping done we will for sure use them.

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.
