I had hired Brian from Green Missions Landscaping to do leaf clean-up on my front and back yards. I have no trees on my property but am surrounded by some really big ones. Brian did a great and thorough job cleaning up my yard. I would highly recommend his services.

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.!

Wow! Cesar and his crew have transformed my landscaping from overgrown weeds to a spectacular garden oasis! Cesar was the first to respond to my original request and came out the same day to provide me with a very reasonable estimate. I am very meticulous about work done and he far exceeded my expectations. So impressed I am hiring them to do weekly maintenance! Highly recommend them—you will not be disappointed!

I had AC Lawncare and Landscaping over to clean out my gutters. The service provided went above and beyond! My back patio was covered with leaves and after he left it was cleared. This was not something that was mentioned beforehand, he just took the initiative to provide the best service he could. This is what creates repeat customers.

Lance and Alex were awesome! They were on time, they were thorough, they cleaned up after the job. They even painted a short section of picket fence for me and I didn't even ask them to take care of that. They came to look at the job, which was a very overgrown front and backyard. I told them I was looking for a 'blank slate' kind of look so that I could list the property for sale. They powered through all the overgrowth, they cut down small trees, they weed-wacked huge shrubs, they power-washed the house. The place looks great! And I even forgot to show them one side of the house, which was a veritable jungle, and when I told them AFTER they quoted me for the job, they said they'd take care of it at no additional charge. I increased their payment, of course, because they deserved it even though they didn't ask for it. Great guys!

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.

Albert was very responsive during the communication to schedule up the time even though it was kind of last minute call from our end. He gave a heads up 15 min before he arrives and he arrived 5 min early than scheduled. He took care of the properties professionally and was paying good attention to the details. He also provided feedback to us regarding other things he noticed around house that could be taken care of, such as branch over the roof. The price was competitive compared to the others in the area. We're very satisfied with the outcome due to the good quality of the work and how he deliveried the service professionally. We trust him and would recommend his service.

TAM landscape came out on a holiday just to quote the job for me. They installed a set of stairs on my front porch and replaced sections of sidewalk as well. They had to dig out a tee root that was thicker than my arm to make sure the sidewalk would last over time. They did all of the work on weekends which was great because I could be there in case of any issues and I didn't need to take time off work. Workers were polite and friendly. They mentioned several times that they wanted to make sure I was completely happy with the work. Highly recommend TAM Landscape!

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.

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.
