Edward did a wonderful job cleaning up a yard in Norwalk for me. The backyard looked like a jungle before he started! He trimmed all the trees and shrubs and cut the lawn - it now looks pristine. Edward was professional, prompt and his price was competitive. I will be using his services again, thanks.

The crew came out within a few days of me contacting Jared to mow, trim and edge our lawn. After coming home and seeing the work, I wanted the backyard shorter, and they came back gladly to do so. I really appreciate the extra effort they took to make me a completely satisfied customer!

He put a 6 ft privacy fence in my backyard. Even though the yard has low and high spots he did his best to make my fencing look nice. Gate broke, I messaged him and he ordered another gate and came back and fixed it, at no charge. I am happy with my fencing. Thanks Robert.

Blueprint Landscaping & Design recently performed fall clean-up and other services such as lawn aeration, grub control, tree trimming, and plant pruning. This service was done professionally and promptly. I very much appreciated that Blueprint Landscaping did good work with little direction and oversight. I was very satisfied with the work they performed at a very cost-effective price.

We had a very good experience with Mike! We had a lot of leaves in our front and backyard and he did a great and fast job removing them. He finished in under the time he quoted us, which was great and was super easy to schedule with. I will definitely hire him again.

They were professional and showed up on time. They trimmed a large maple tree in my backyard and bushes in front of my house. It was a big job. Duane and his crew handled it efficiently and were neat and tidy. The price was fair and I would use them again.

No Limit did a backyard grading and lawn seeding project for us. In the beginning there were delays, but he did what he could until the weather cooperated and we now have grass peeking up through the straw. Clinton worked hard, was friendly, and did a really good job.

Kyle is awesome. I have luckily found a company to handle all of my landscaping needs. Kyle is knowledgeable with sprinkler systems, which is definitely a plus. My front and back yard look amazing. K&B also built and installed columns in my backyard for my new light fixtures.

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!

N.F.L. did a small project for me (Under $20k) and I couldn't be more pleased with their work. Completely transformed the front and sides of the house with new plants, trees, lighting, sprinklers, and my favorite - a paver walkway/patio. Darnell and his crews are such a cohesive group. Right from the start I knew this was a good company to hire. Darnell not only cares about the client and the job, he cares about those guys doing all the hard work, and believe me it shows in their efforts to get the clients job done right. From the design crew to field crew, N.F.L. Landscaping, Design, and Construction will most certainly do the job right. Clean, efficient, on time and quite pleasant to work with these guys. Will hire again to do the rest of the property.

Excellent work! They came out quickly, and got the job done safely. A large tree branch fell in my backyard, and they safely cut it down even though it was close to the house. They even cut it into small pieces for firewood for me. A job well done!

Jason and Chris did an excellent job transforming my backyard into a usable grass area. They had to till the soil, top dress, apply fertilizer, then grass seed and finally straw. They were clean and efficient and took away a lot of yard debris in order to leave the work area spotless. I would HIGHLY recommend 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.
