Miguel and Fernando did amazing work on our backyard and garden! They took on a very overgrown yard and garden with confidence. They worked with us throughout the whole process to keep the work in our budget, and done in one day! I highly recommend Lasting Impressions Landscape and Tree Service and look forward to hiring them in the future.

Ralph and Vicki were very responsive and eager to help us. They didn't originally have availability to come out and help us as soon as we needed, but they made time to come out the next day. Our lawn was really high as we're currently having some work done, and the riding mower wouldn't fit through our new gate into the backyard, but Ralph push mowed our large yard to get the job done. There was much attention to detail and he took pride in his work for us. We were more than pleased, we left a large tip due to how much they went above and beyond for us. We look forward to using RVR in the future for our needs.

From the first meeting with Laura Darwin, there was professionalism and detailed attention to my specific project. Her crew did a wonderful job at every visit. My property has been treated with the most special care. This has made my summer season so much more enjoyable. The follow through and follow up of Darwin Designs has been incredible. They truly care about their client's needs. The level of service is far higher than most.

After completing a magnificent retaining wall, concrete slab, patio and landscaping for us earlier this summer, we recently asked him to top off our new outdoor space by re-sealing our driveway. As expected, he did a fine job with that, as well. Then, he impressed us by doing some minor concrete repair on our back porch...without us asking, and for no charge. We are huge fans of Rodolfo and his crew!

My yard had been taken over by rats because of poor drainage, a dilapidated shed, and my three big dogs' ample food supply to them, yuck. Being that my neighbors are running their gutters to my fenceline, I came up w the mother of all fixes. I want to install a rain garden. At the fenceline. At the fence. If you've researched rain gardens, you'll know I'm now not only asking for the moon, but the stars as well. Austin arrived on time, listened to my maniacle ramblings and complaints, and with his naturally patient ways, he assured me that his recent education was really going to be the assist because he did an entire project on rain gardens!! Austin is that rare guy who gets a big childish grin when he gets to tackle something new and challenging. He'd be back with the plan in a bit. I jumped up and down in my kitchen with my husband when he left. Phase one is complete. The dilapidated shed required heavy machinery, which was unforseen with our quote, but the cement slab was twice as thick as usual, and also laterally reinforced with steal rebar. Bless your heart, Austin. He kindly renogotiated our price, which we found absolutely fair. $100. That's not getting ripped off. I watched it happen, it was such a nuisance with it's permanent slab, but the shed he pushed over with his hands. ?????? We all had a chuckle at the end. We've ordered the plants for the garden; my custom made, custom fitted, eco friendly rain garden. I boast because as challenging as my requests were and still are, my husband and I found the smartest, nicest, most creative, independent, honest, fresh visionary, who honestly can imagine anything we can. Austin is coming back soon to "install" the garden. I've already been able to enjoy the relief of he drains he installed when removing the shed. The rats have been gone for weeks. My mind is resting. We're so squirmy for the next phase. We will be Austin's lifelong customers.

Franco Giardina and his crew did an excellent job getting rid of a backyard full of overgrown weeds. It was a big job and they made the backyard look great. We are motivated to actually do yard work now. Also, Franco and the two young men that made up his crew were very respectful and whenever I looked out they were working. Franco also gave me advice on what to do to maintain what they did. I recommend Auspicious Lawn and Landscape.

This was likely the fastest request to estimate to completion. I had my front areas, sides of the house and backyard worked on by Rex, Chase and fam. Work included removal of excessively high dirt against the foundation (some regrading here too), removal of dead/dying/just needs to go shrubbery, weeding, edging of all areas, top soil and mulch, even fixing loose areas of a paver patio too. Everything done in a day and it would have taken me months. Very happy with the transformation. I opted to not go for new plants at this time as I want to see what is out there and add to it over time.

We recently had Philip Evangelisti, of Sunny Ridge, complete a paver patio for our new home. I originally reached out through Thumbtack for someone to build a patio. Philip was the first of several contractors to respond to my request. My husband and I set up a time to meet with Philip to discuss our requirements. He arrived in a timely manner, and presented himself in a very professional manner. I already had a basic design in mind, so Philip worked off of that plan to finalize a drawing for us. He made numerous suggestions as to the best way to approach our project, as well as helping to guide us regarding what type of materials would best serve our purpose. After a couple of meetings with Philip and obtaining a quote for the work, we felt confident that he could take on the project and do a great job. Let me mention that we often like to hire entrepreneurs in order to help them get started in their business and allow them to hone in on their skills. With that desire in mind, we hired Philip to build our patio. Although he is a little young, he has quite a bit of experience and knowledge in numerous areas. Our faith in his skills indeed paid off. Philip worked with us throughout the entire project to make sure that we were informed about what, why, and how he was doing things. Since we were building a portion of our patio over the top of a concrete slab, it was necessary for him to make modifications in order to have one continuous flat patio upon completion. My husband and I shopped for the necessary supplies, and even had a couple of calls with him to make sure that what we were getting would work. (These calls were on a weekend, and while he was out of town, but he was more than happy to talk with us.) We set up delivery of our supplies, and Philip promptly got started on our project. He often hired his brother to help him with the job. The two of them worked hard, in the hot summer heat, and completed the patio in a timely manner. Philip knew what he was doing, he knew how to do it, and took great care each step of the way. I made a modification to the way we were going to have our steps, and Philip just took it in stride and worked with us to make it work. He even went with us to purchase the supplies and helped us figure out what we needed. We are EXTREMELY pleased with our patio, and have received numerous compliments about how beautiful it turned out. Unfortunately I did not take pictures of the completed project before we put everything on the patio, but I believe you will see just how awesome it looks from these pictures. In conclusion, I would not hesitate to hire Philip again if we would have any other project. I also would certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking to hire a contractor. His prices are more than fair, he often went above and beyond what was required, and he is willing to work hard to get the job done in a professional and timely manner. Debbie Scott

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.
