We hired Errin and his crew to install approx. 5200 sq. ft of sod in our backyard. To accomplish this they had to remove the existing grass, grade and level the dirt, til the soil, spread a layer of compost, and then lay the sod. This was a 4 day job--definitely not a small task--and Errin and his team did an absolutely incredible job. Errin was great with communication throughout the entire project. His team was always on time, very polite, and they left the patio clean each day. We have a beautiful backyard now and couldn't be happier with the results. We will definitely hire them for all of our other landscaping projects. Highly recommended!!!

Anderson came to my home and removed two trees from my backyard that were too large for the space. They also cleaned gutters and installed downspout shields. They did an excellent job. They were on time, reviewed the work prospectus before starting, finished prior to the estimated time, cleaned the work area, removed all debris and other waste, and reviewed the job when finished. The crew was professional and easy to work with. I would definitely use Anderson again, and recommend to friends.

I am so very pleased with my new backyard!Avila Landscaping worked their tail off making my multi-level, rocky yard into a safe place for my children to hang out in and play. Jose and his wife are lovely people, and the job was started early and finished even earlier than anticipated. I would not hesitate to call them again for landscaping needs and absolutely recommend Avila Landscaping.

Pedro and his guys did an outstanding job shaping my arborvitae trees. He also made my backyard look amazing by trimming several bushes. Pedro made sure everything was picked up and tidy before leaving. I will be calling him for future jobs. Jeannie

Our backyard had a lot of overgrown blackberry bushes,shrubs and trees and we attempted to clear away the bushes on our own. When the job seemed too much, we decided to go on Thumbtack and find a landscaping business. We found Green Route, LLC . They came over, and we agreed on a price for both the back yard, and minimal weeding in the front yard. Later in the week, they sent a wonderful person to clear away all the bushes, and this increased our backyard space by 10 feet on two sides! He also cleared away the other weeds that were found in the bushes, and took great care to make sure there were no sharp branches laying around, as we have two young children. Now our backyard is ready for gardening, and we will be using this company again for our other needs. Thank you!

They went above and beyond anything I could've imagined. I had a big project with an uneven backyard full of river rock. Within a week I had a beautiful, even yard full of nice green grass. It was A LOT of work, and they managed to get it done so quickly. At the end of the project I decided on adding a fence on one side of my yard and they were able to do that too! I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend them to everyone.

Rick was awesome! He came out on two separate occasions to walk through the project with my husband and I, and really worked to help us get the most bang for our buck. He advised us on what he thought would be the best fit for our family (kids and pets), what we could do ourselves to save money, and what would bring the most resale value to the property. We couldn't be happier!


We specialize in retaining walls, water features, pavers, lawn installation and maintenance, irrigation, such as French drains and sprinkler systems, fence repair, power washing and more.

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.
