I hired Anderson Landscape Maintenance to do some tree work for me at my home. They completely cut down a tall pine tree & topped a tall Christmas tree. I have nothing but good things to say about the company & the work. The people were very nice to work with, scheduled my appointment very promptly, arrived on time & did a fantastic job. I was very impressed with the clean-up and the work done. I didn't come home to a big mess that I had to clean up myself. The gentlemen that did the work were very fast & efficient. They did a wonderful job & the price was very reasonable for what they did. I would highly recommend them to others & will book any future work with Anderson. Sherry Brown

Filiberto arrived the same day we spoke by telephone. He quickly diagnosed my fountain problem as the electrical jack and not the pump. After I have the electrical repaired I will hire Filiberto to perform some cleaning and maintenance on my fountain.

Kevin was first to give us a quote for the lawn replacement job I had described. As he walked the property, he also told me about the other home maintenance services he offers, which include power washing. So I asked him to include that in his price with the sod project. The price was quite reasonable. I was put off a bit that he asked for 75% up front; but I realized that he needed to purchase the materials, as well as pay his helper. Kevin explained the sodding project in detail, answered all my questions and gave us instructions for care after the sod was in place. Since the job was done only a few days ago, I don't know how it will turn out; but it looks terrific right now! I'd certainly recommend All Seasons - Kevin was on time and actually finished both jobs in 2 days, rather than the 3 we had allotted. He was also very accommodating when it came to the other workers we had on-site at the same time. Thanks again, Kevin!

I own rental properties in PDX and have used a number of tree trimming services over the years. Green Scape Landscaping is the best and most responsive company I have used to date. The owner, Ed Harris, is very detail oriented and is very concerned that he listens to what the customer wants, and gives the customer satisfaction. He is knowledgeable and will offer professional advice when warranted, but will defer to your wishes so long as you understand what it is you are asking for. Ed remains in communication with you throughout the process. He follows up, also. His crew is fast, thorough, cheerful, and prompt. They are careful to be non-disruptive (especially important to me because of tenants). I will use them again and I recommend them to anyone who needs tree service. I would further infer that their other services (scheduled maintenance, etc.) are equally professional.

I reached out on here for a landscapers ho could do landscape clearing and preparation for a home that we were putting on the market to lease out. As a property management company we understand first impressions determine quite a lot. I received 2 landscapers who reached out and ultimately chose 7days Lawn Care Maintenance. We could go on and on about how great Enrique was in communicating with us, showing up for schedule appointments, his value, his personality and grasp of the vision we had for the property and much more. We have found a long term partner in landscaping. A company we can trust and go to when we need our owners homes to get an extra touch of spruce up. Thanks Enrique for your stewardship, integrity and how hard you worked. Picture tell a thousand words.

I'm so excited to have found Mike Leclair! Since moving to Portland 3 years ago I have struggled to find a lawn service that will work on my lawn longer than 4 and half minutes each visit ( I literally timed them.) My yard looks amazing for the first time since I moved in and I don't have to call him and ask him to pull weeds. Woo hoo!!

Anders replies to my project within in hour on a Friday night. Saturday they came for an estimate and we hired them for yard clean up and installing bark dust. They called two days before the scheduled job to confirm work to be done and the cost and were on time day of. They had us do a walk around before they left for the day, and then Jennifer called two hours later to make sure we were happy and if there was anything they missed. Their workmanship is wonderful. Their communication is phenomenal and professional. We are hiring them for regular yard maintenance and couldn’t be happier.

These guys are extremely professional and thorough. I live a LONG way from their base in Milwaukie, but they were willing to travel here to work on my water feature, which had not been cleaned for too many years (my bad). It also had a leak that I could not find. They spent an entire day working on the water feature and found and fixed several leaks, in addition to cleaning it with spectacular results. Unfortunately, not all the leaks were found that day. I phoned them to ask that they come back and fix the remaining leak(s). They were very responsive and made the long drive again, found two more bad (but well hidden) leaks and fixed them. All is well now. Great guys to work with, and I have scheduled them to come back next spring for routine maintenance and cleaning. Thanks Guys.

Pedro is outstanding. Our yard, which is about 1/4 acre was in bad shape. All my bushes and trees needed trimmed. There were tons of weeds, at least 10 different flower beds that needed cleaned out, weeded and raked. It was a huge job. Pedro showed up early yesterday morning around 8 and completed the entire job by himself, by 6pm. He maintained all my flowers that were already blooming, cleaned out all my beds, he even cleaned up around my raised garden beds, which I told him he didnt have to do, but was thrilled that he did. My yard looks amazing today. And once again he did this all alone. We were so impressed that my husband gave him an extra $100 and we have hired him to do our maintanance every 2 weeks. Pedro is professional, hard working, and understood my vision for my yard. I highly recommend him.

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.
