I hired a previous landscape company to clean up my plants, lawn and general maintenance. I did not think it was the best job. When EC came and did the same project that took all day I realized what they accomplished is what it should have been with the first landscaper. Emillano and his crew were very nice, on time and did a FANTASTIC job (they definitely set the bar)!! They will be coming every 2 weeks for up keep.

I hired Glenn to replace a toilet in my master bathroom. I already had the new toilet purchased, but when he went to install it, my water line was too short. Glenn went to Home Depot, picked up the piece and finished the install. Professional, courteous and reasonably priced. Will definitely use him again.

Zeev had to replace our outlet to accommodate a newer dryer. He was very punctual, professional, and knowledgeable. He also offered competitive rates. We actually have him doing a few more modification to our home next week!

Chris came to install a ceiling fan in our son's nursery. He arrived on time, was very knowledgable and even troubleshot a few issues that we came across (parts on factory fan were broken and needed replacement). Overall, we were very happy with our experience and would recommend Chris for future projects!

Victor and his team have done a fabulous job with our yard. We have made some tough requests, and he has always accommodated IF it makes sense for the space. One of the things we appreciate his extensive knowledge of native plants, how to work with a steep runoff, etc What he doesn’t know, he is very willing to research. We also appreciate his connections with folks who do hardscaping, fencing, as well as water features. It makes our lives easier to not have to search for random contractors.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Anderson Landscape Maintenance. They have been out to our house a few times already taking down trees and cleaning up our landscape. We were renting the house for seven years and the yard was sorely neglected. We are now waiting for fall to do the designing with plants, and shrubs. We will also have them continue with tree trimming as we can afford it.

While Jose showed up at my house on the wrong day, I allowed him to plant my trees anyway and he did a great job. I would hire him again in the future as well as recommend him to others. He is very hard working and planted my trees the way I asked. 👍

Dan was reasonable priced next to the competition. I had sod, yard cleanup, bark, tree trimming and plant relocation done. It was done quickly, and professionally. The crew moved two huge elderberry bushes without damaging them or the house. I was really hoping to save them and I'm sure they will do well in their new spot. The yard looks great. There was some miscommunication regarding one part of the project. Dan did his best to rectify.

Filiberto came and found the leaks in my stream and then he did an excellent job of cleaning up my overcrowded Pond. I had years and years of water plants that had been choking my pond and he cleaned it all out and made it beautiful again! Thanks so much for the great service. Scott Kennedy

Juan removed existing sod and plant material from a number of driveway and sidewalk strips in my 122 unit HOA. He then installed paving stones and bark dust according to specifications. We love the finished result that Creekscape Design completed for us. It took a bit longer than originally planned, but part of that was us needing to work out some details mid-project. There were a few instances of follow-up required on our part, but Juan was good about replying to concerns and rectifying what needed to be taken care of. Overall, I would recommend Creekscape Design's work to others.

I wanted a landscaper to clear grass, amend and add soil, put in flagstone steps and build a retaining wall in my front yard (mostly). Additionally I wanted to plant three trees and to put a thick layer of mulch on everything. I wanted to buy and plant smaller plants myself and Eddie was very able to work with me. Eddie was the first to respond to my Thumbtack request and also to be willing to come to my home to give me an idea of what was involved and to give an estimate. I did not have to send a bunch of pics and to try to explain online what I wanted. His team (Ced, Ty and Matthew) were great and did an excellent job. They want above and beyond and the outcome was more than satisfactory. I will hire Greenscape Landscaping LLC again.

Victor got in touch with me and was able to come out to temporarily solve our issue with water. He git here just before 1pm and just left before 10pm. Turns out it was a tee in the hot water feed to the kitchen ssink and dishwasher split. The pipe is some sort of PVC and splitting as he kept trying to repair. He finally had to put an exterior sleeve around by bad pipe and then his replacement into the other side of the sleeve. We figured the pressure “thump” of hot water turn on/off plus some syof bad PVC (maybe it was exposed to UV before installation 21+ years ago?). Victor did not give up until we had water again and his repair will last!! I will definitely hire this company again and ask specifically for Victor!! I’m also going to call the company Monday and tell them what a great guy they have!

These guys came out and cleaned out one of the dirtiest ponds I’ve seen and saved what we thought were 4 fish - turned out to be 10, and a couple of large salamanders! They are all much happier now and the pond looks gorgeous! Tim was one of the first pros to get back to me and was prompt in all of our correspondence. Will definitely use these guys again!

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.

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.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
