I was able to make an appt within 2 days of my request for work. Zeev showed up on time and completed the work in a timely fashion, which included him taking a trip to the local Home Depot for materials. He repaired a leak/burst pipe above the garage ceiling and fixed my front yard faucet(handle broken off). The total cost for the repairs was more than reasonable, under $200. I would hire again.

Stacey was great! He was able to give us same day service. He hauled away a bunch of wood, metal, garbage, & an old freezer. The dump fee was $39 & he was going to charge us his original bid of $60. $21 for 2 hrs. of his time wasn't fair, so I made a point of paying him in the range of the other bids I received on thumbtack which were 2.5x his original bid. We were so pleased with his work, that we had him come back the following day to do yard service. We will use Stacey again, & highly recommend him for the services he offers.

Fantastic job! Highly recommended for outdoor landscaping of all types. He came to my house right away to estimate the job. He recommended where I should get the bark dust, (Best Buy Bark), and said he'd remove and replace some dead trees and spread 6 yards of bark dust by Friday before my Saturday BBQ party. He and his crew did all the work in two days, all done by Wednesday. He worked very hard, and offered many great recommendations for current and future work on the yard. And he continuously cleaned up wherever he was working. Jose Avila is a great asset to our neighborhood - do call him for a quote.

Mr. Anderson arrive right on schedule. He took all the 5 ft. tall weeds down to the ground. He found items that I thought had just gone missing but had infact just been swallowed by the weeds and blackberries. He performed all of the bckyard and front yard services that I requested in record time of 2 hrs. I believe it would have been faster had his assistant not called in sick at the last moment. He took it all in stride and did a great job. Kevin was very courteous, friendly and professional. I would recommend him and will call upon his services in the future. Sincerely, Leigh Anne Chavez

Ramiro came out the next day and gave a reasonable quote. We went with him and they started that day! He and his co worker wasn't able to finish cleaning up my yard that day but returned early the next day to finish the job. They did a great job. I will be calling Ramiro again when I need help with the yard. Big Thanks to Ramiro for his help!

They were professional and did an excellent job. I haven't seen my lawn look so well done in a long time. I have to say I'm really glad I decided to hire these guys instead of taking care of the yard myself this year.

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.

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 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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include 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.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
