Key Concepts sent two crew members to our home and they cleaned the yard up, raked, edged, trimmed and weeded the yard. They also removed a lot of debris from a garden recently rototilled under. We have hired them for bi-monthly yard maintenance and look forward to working with them in the future. The crew was friendly and very eager to take care of a few requests. I would recommend Key Concepts Landscape Maintenance to friends and family.

My husband & I just moved to the PNW two months ago and do not know any contractors for painting. Our house needed entire interior painted. My niece told me about Thumbtack so I checked it out. Fernando Damas, owner, called immediately. He is so pleasant to talk to. He came to our home within a day or two. He emailed our quote to us the next day. His painters, Jose & Manuel are awesome. Our interior looks fabulous. They were punctual every day and worked some days until 7:30pm. We've had contactors before that would spend a lot of time on their cell phones. Not Jose or Manuel. We were extremely happy with them and especially the beautiful job they did. We recommend Damas Painting without any reservation. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

Julia and her crew did an outstanding job on our yard. We just moved into our home and the landscaping had not been maintained for several months. Julia listened carefully to what we wanted and made it happen! The end result is beautiful. We have received so many positive comments from our new neighbors! Julia is very responsive. She always got back to us in a timely manner and was on the job when she said she would be. I highly recommend Julia!

His company did a beautiful job trimming my very tall hedges. There is a kind live voice answering the phone if you have questions, on time for the appointment for my estimate, job done in days after a signed proposal was submitted and what a nice cheerful company. Typically, it is like pulling teeth to get someone to do a job as this - they all want a signed 12 month contract for yard maintenance. I recommend all try this company, avoid the frustration I have gone through in the past if you have a single or one time yard or landscape need.

Dario holds himself and his staff to the highest standards and truly cares about your satisfaction. And if you need to contact him he gets back to you promptly (every time in my experience!) I also know other people who have used his services for many years who feel the same. We all agree he goes above and beyond, not just with words, but with actions. I highly recommend you chose him as your landscape maintenance service.

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.

Squirrel Landscape were professional, and new exactly what was wrong with my sprinkler system. They came as soon as I called to access the situation at no charge and finished the work in the next few days. Where as the other company I called wanted 89$ just to look at the problem and could not come out for 10 days. I would definitely use Squirrel Landscape again

My grass had not been mowed for a while. It was long and wet from the rain. Marco came out and gave me a fair quote. He mowed the grass and evened out the long and short parts. He edged it and made it look great for when my grand kids came over to visit. I would hire him again for all my lawn and landscape work.

Pedro came out to give me a bid and was so friendly, professional and stayed true to his quote (unlike many other landscapers). He and his friend Jorge did fantastic work, mowing down a difficult hillside in one day (it takes a team of 2-3 guys 2 days usually) and also mowing a pasture area that was getting out of control. I would definitely recommend Pedro, he does excellent work at an affordable price.

Luis took our landscape plan, gave us an itemized bid based on that plan and then executed that plan as bid. He handled all our in progress changes professionally and always had a positive attitude with great suggestions and guidance along the way. We liked his work so much we referred him to several friends and family members. You will not be disappointed with his work.

Mike does quality work, on time and on estimate. I would recommend him and will use him for future projects. He put in a cedar fence that wrapped around our whole yard, including rocky terrain and a rock wall. When I first saw the wall height, I requested it be another foot taller. He was willing to accommodate my new request and had it complete the same day. What I'm most impressed with is the cedar fence coming down our rock wall. I had other estimates that suggested chicken or cable wire, but Mike was able to keep the aesthetic of the cedar.

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.
