We were very happy with Tom. He was the only contractor that responded to us after calling 5 contractors. He repaired a crumbled step in 90 degree weather and did a great job. Would highly recommend.

We had a small narrow concrete path that was cracking and falling apart. We called multiple contractors and DPR was the only one who called us back. They gave us exactly what we asked for without trying to get us to buy something we didn't need. I gave them our budget and they stuck to it!

Nothing but good things to say about Balco Landscapes! I had just completed two projects with separate big name contractors and the experiences were both horrible. Had I not been on home on several occasions, the work these other contractors did would have been done wrong and not to spec. So I was a bit uneasy when I realized that due to my work schedule, I would not be home for the entirety of the landscaping project with Balco. But, Balco Landscapes showed up every day, on time, and did the work they quoted. The work itself is stunning! The installed 2 flagstone patios over concrete base, a separate stacked stone retaining wall, and landscaped a garden bed horribly overgrown with weeds and planted agreed upon plants. Also planted a dogwood in the very back of the yard. Balco also pulled the necessary permits from Baltimore City (which in itself is no easy task). They quoted 2 weeks to complete the project and they finished in 1 week and 3 days. Harry and his team were nothing but courteous and professional from the moment they showed up in person to discuss design and requirements, through to the project's completion. The morning after the day in which it looked as though everything had been completed, I spoke directly with Harry to make sure they were done so I could finalize payment. Indeed they were... but Harry was already on his way to my house to shore up a joint line in one of the patios that "he wasn't happy with." I didn't ask him to do it... i didn't even recognize what he was talking about... but he came out on his own to take care of it. That is owning your workmanship. And that is respect for the homeowner. This is how working with contractors should always be!! They are already my decided choice for some additional work I'll have done in a few months. If you have landscaping needs, you'll be in good hands with Balco! A+ across the board.

Idalbert arrived on time the day of my appointment. He performed all the work we had previously discussed, in a timely, professional manner. He is a hard worker dedicated to his landscaping business. And his prices are very reasonable. It's difficult finding a good landscaper in this area. I've found a great one in Idalbert. I will most definitely be hiring him for all my landscaping needs.

Joe Shenberger with Kleenscaping did an amazing job for us. It included installing a brick patio, re building a pond, removing a tree, tree pruning and painting/staining and repairing the fencing and deck. He also introduced new plantings as well as transplanting a few things. I was extremely pleased with the job he did. Joe spent a lot of time with me planning the project and kept me informed regularly of their progress. Joe and his crew were extremely hard working and made sure they got everything exactly right for me. I even threw in an extra pruning job at the end. I highly recommend Kleenscaping for all your landscaping needs.

At first they were very responsive and I appreciated they're flexibility to contact via phone, email and text. I did request a rush job so I was ignorant in my request and needed clarification. Unfortunately I had to keep reaching out to get the clarification and when everything was understood, I never heard back for a new estimate nor a "sorry, we don't have time to do your project due to larger jobs". A learning for me to make sure I understand everything; but I hope this review helps them make more phone conversations so the person clearly understands what the estimate really entails, what they can offer in options, and timelines available. I don't want anyone else to have this happen to them; because now I'm back to square one interviewing new contractors and I wasted my time......

I renovated a porch to a 4 season room. All the brick had to be cut with a wet saw for a facade. The surfaces it was going on was uneven and a challenge. Daryl and his guys were great. I had a contractor quit and Darly picked up from there. He made corrections that if not noticed would of created major issues down the road and never complained. He just went with it and fixed it. His brick work was great. I highly appreciate his work and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a mason. Thanks again.

We had a roof leak that caused drywall and hardwood floor damage. Excellent painters and did a good job with vinyl flooring. The family contractors did a great job at a reasonable price. Everything was restored to good as new. They are very hard and efficient workers. Very polite, start early and finish late. Maintain a very clean work area. They removed all trash and left a very orderly work area each day. We definitely would hire them again and recommend them to others.

Outstanding tradesmanship and honorable work ethic is not something that comes easy these days. We're extremely happy with the work done to the exterior of our home. It's a relief to know we have a reliable contractor who shows up when they're supposed to, stays until the work is complete, and actually does the job the right way, the first time. We have more work lined up for the future and will most definitely be calling on them again.

We hired Jeff to install some kitchen cabinets and build a deck under them, then trim them out. Jeff is punctual, reasonably priced, neat, personable and a real craftsman- every quality you could want in a contractor or Handyman! I am very particular and OCD, he worked with me every step of the way and really helped my vision come to fruition. Not to mention, he was wonderful with my 3 very young children and respectful of my home (taking shoes off etc). We are having Jeff back for a full bathroom remodel and cannot wait to work with him again, would highly recommend.

replace floor in bedroom and paneled lower 1/3 of room. Eric took on a project that other contractors refused to do or priced too high to be sensible. He completed the project on budget and in a very timely manner. He amazingly kept the surrounding areas free from scraps and cleaned up after himself. highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an honest and conscientious contractor. I have another project in the wings and I know that I will contact him first.

We initially had Tom out to give us an estimate on extending our fence so that we could fit our pool in our backyard and still meet the township requirements. By the time we got done talking, we also hired him to run the electric for our pool AND finish our huge basement. In two weeks, YES 2 weeks, they finished the fence, ran the electric, hauled away stuff from the basement that we didn’t want, AND not only finished our basement, but literally turned it into a basement that my entire family never wants to leave. Tom and his team were professional, responsive, and truly cared about every detail that they put into their work. They worked every single day (including weekends) to make sure that they not only meet their timeline, but exceeded our expectations. I have never had such a positive experience with a contractor and our family is completely IN LOVE with our gorgeous basement! Thank you Tom & team for making our basement dream come true at an extremely competitive price that we could afford. I’m almost certain we’ll be seeing you soon for whatever we decide our next project will be!

I used Thumbtack and entered Landscape Contractors. I got several bids returned and a few choices to pick from. So, I went through the the task of interviewing all the contractors. D & S Lawn seemed to give me all the time I needed, listened carefully and came up with a great presentation! I called some of his referrals and Randy even took me on a job tour of some of the local jobs completed! I was impressed and hired him. The job took two weeks to complete and I could have not been more pleased! I cannot wait for Phase two to be completed in 2015!

We had some power washing done and a piece of pvc replaced that had broken off outside. We had a few other items quoted, and the prices were high compared to quotes from more specialized contractors so we passed on those things. However, Brian was responsive, professional, showed up on time, and did what he said for price he quoted.

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.
