R&D renovated my ~250 sq ft deck and added a roof. They did quality work for a reasonable price. Sam was flexible, easy to work with, and helped me work up a design that turned out to be perfect for our desired layout.

We just built a new house in Mt Lookout and wanted to add some much needed landscaping around our pool and backyard. These guys did a great job. They were incredibly affordable and had terrific work ethic. I couldn't recommend them more highly and I will be using them again next Spring.

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!!

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.

I was looking for someone to create a backyard space for my three dogs (sometimes more when we foster). Mike listened with a sincere intent on understanding what we were looking for. He came out and presented his ideas and it was a no-brainer to hire him. He is very creative and came up with some excellent ideas. The area is everything we thought it would be and more. Mike was very communicative throughout and got the job done in a timely fashion. The space looks amazing (now, if I can just keep my dogs from tearing out the new trees and bushes that would be great!! :)) I will definitely hire Mike in the future for future projects.

I hired Smith Landscaping and Contracting to cut down a large spruce tree and take out an overgrown brush pile in the backyard, and trim a pine tree off the house in the front yard. I am very happy with the job Tom and his team did. They were friendly, professional, and efficient. I'm looking forward to hiring Smith Landscaping again, we already have more quotes on other projects in the works! Highly recommend!

Travis laid stone in a front area of our home. He picked the stone, was there when he said he would be, completed on time, worked neatly, and the finished project is fantastic. We have a backyard that is on the list next year and Travis is using his design talent to come up with our oasis plans. excited to see his plans! Thanks thumbtack!

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. :)

A little back story- I hired a general contractor that quit because it was "so complicated" & left my patio an absolute mess. I spent weeks getting new quotes & searching for a new contractor after that disaster. Most contractors were hesitant to take this on after seeing the way the old contractor left the patio. Dave was the only contractor that took the time to make sure every single detail was covered & what we wanted. He spent a good amount of time with us mapping out exactly what he was going to do. He also brought up several good points & ideas we hadn't considered before. Dave & his team constructed a PERFECT deck with a covered pergola. Dave went above and beyond our expectations! The team arrived on time each day & finished the project in just a few short days. Dave did exactly what he said he was going to do at a very reasonable price. The space is flawless! We are in love with our new outdoor oasis and will enjoy it for all four seasons! I would 100% recommend this company.

About

I feel I have a more artistic sense than many landscape designers. I also have many years of experience and know how best to economically improve any landscape. I also oversee all my jobs. There is no disconnect from designer to installer.

Justin was a great contractor to work with. We tried getting work done before, but he was the quickest, and had the best value. He was very respectful when it came to not damaging my other landscape, and went about and beyond to make our yard exactly how we wanted it. He finished it quickly and professionally! I love spending nights relaxing in my backyard ecsape now!

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 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.
