We received several quotes, and our decision came down to two companies we were extremely impressed with. Hess Tree Stump and Landscaping and another company. Both responded very quickly to the initial request, inspected the property on a weekend to provide an accurate quote and responded to every email and text immediately. Both offered an excellent quote for the work being done, especially compared to all the others. In the end we selected the other company based on who called first, because we really couldn't pick otherwise, and it seemed the fairest way to decide. I wish we could have utilized both of them. I sincerely feel who ever chooses to work with this company will be very happy! And oh, did I mention his manners and calling me Ma'am was just the icing on the cake!

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.

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 had a rotted tree leaning towards my house that my neighbor and I decided we didn’t want to take down ourselves due to the risk of of it having close proximity to the house. They were very responsive and did a great job.

We built a new custom home in Ft Wright, Kentucky. After getting the interior close to finished and having our driveway poured we needed to dress up the outside. Scratch the Surface Excavating, owner Tom Audas was referred by one of our sub contractors. Tom designed and built our exterior landscaping/hardscaping and far exceeded our expectations. We built a full walkout on a hillside. Scratch the Surface excavated and installed a beautiful rock path from the back corner of the house to the front opposite corner of the house (130 feet) The rocks are enormous and fit together beautifully. He installed 20+ steps out of rock like they were cast for the application. Except they are real rocks! The back of our house was the one area that we didn’t have a clue how to handle. Scratch the Surface Excavating also did all of our grading,seeding, and sod applications. Tom also rerouted our sch 35 footer drains and ran the daylight pipes in the back of our house to make the area workable. Scratch the Surface Excavating is a class act!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

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.
