Jeremiah and his team did an amazing job with the pruning of 3 trees and the removal of another tree. They are absolute professionals and amongst the hardest working folks that I have ever had the pleasure of hiring. They were in and out in less than 3 days and did a great job of removing the debris. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is in need of pruning, tree removal and/or landscape work. I will hire them again for additional work I have scheduled later this year.

I was very pleased with the work that they did clearing out overgrown shrubs/trees that had encroached on my driveway. Frank came out and gave me a good estimate, got the work done on the day he said he would and cleaned everything up before finishing. Very pleased with his work and will definitely use them again.

John is a super nice guy and very professional. I did not need to manage him at all. He came when the lawn needed mowing, whether we were home or not. He is a perfectionist and made the lawn look fantastic! The trimming was also flawless and he even blew the grass clippings out of the flower beds and off the driveway and walkway. John is easy to reach via cell and was flexible to rearrange his schedule to accommodate me a couple times this summer when I hosted an event at my home. I highly recommend Ez lawn an landscape. John does a great job at a reasonable price!

Although I did not hire Craig, that was not his fault, there were extenuating circumstances on my end. Craig was great about coming to the house promptly and providing me with solutions and quotes. Would recommend somebody contacting Craig for their future landscaping needs.

I cannot say enough good things about GreenBoys landscaping! Bo was great to work with and was very professional, punctual, and provided recommendations that greatly transformed my front yard. Bo was very committed and dedicated to his work and the end result was spectacular. GreenBoys (Bo) was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had, and always kept me updated on the project so that I never was wondering or guessing on how the progress was going. He clearly communicated if there was a schedule change and always informed me of the next step of the project. He is awesome at what he does, and it shows in the final results. The entire GreenBoys crew was very professional, also. They left the work site clean at the end of each day and were always friendly and courteous. Their skills are great; as it is evident in the work that they do. I cannot stress enough how happy I am with the final result of the yard. It was amazing to see the concept evolve in to the final product. The final result is amazing! There was an initial estimate of price to be paid and the amount paid was well within reason of the estimate. Everyone who has seen the yard since Bo and GreenBoys have finished is amazed at how it looks.

I contracted with Mark Koeninger and his company in the fall of 2015 to build a covered outdoor living area and the rear of my existing home. The project was completed in the spring of 2016 after I asked them to pause the construction during the holidays and cold temperatures. Mark and his company KPS Architecture and Landscape worked with me with the beginning drawings and plans and provided some very good advice that would make my outdoor living area very unique and have a professional finish. With any large project there were decisions and changes made by me the homeowner but working with KPS on these changes was a good experience. The crew working daily on my project were very professional and were very respectful of my property and maintaining a clean appearance throughout the completion of the project. They were very open to suggestions and were very thorough when explaining the timing and tasks still needing completion to keep the project on track. I will end by saying my outdoor living area and I only met but exceeded my expectations that I envisioned when breaking ground. My neighbors and family have also praise the design and craftsmanship. I have and would again recommend KPS Architecture & Landscape to friends and family. Thank You!!

Joe’s crew of three spent over 8 hours working in my yard weeding, pruning trees/bushes and overall clean up. Joe came last couple hours with another crew member to load up and haul away debris.

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.

Rios landscaping changed the whole look of our yard for the better - new flower beds, new flagstone sidewalk, and a complete overhaul of the overgrown back yard. We could not be more pleased with their work. The team worked with us to listen to our ideas and to offer suggestions when we weren’t sure what direction we wanted to move in. Highly recommended.

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. :)

    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.

    How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

    Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

    How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

    Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

    Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

    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.
