I hired Couture Property Maintenance under a rushed necessity to help us by doing our weeding in many huge established beds prior to big graduation party. Anthony and a crew of 2 came out and finished the job well. We are very happy with the end result! Anthony also kept me well informed to when he and his crew would be out to our home. I would highly recommend this company for your landscaping needs.

I hired PEF Lawncare for Snow Removal. After snow accumulated, I began to panic as I was having a party the next day for 26 people, including some guests who were physically challenged. I needed my snow removed in a hurry. PEF lawn care went above and beyond the call of duty. After I contacted them and explained the situation, they arrived at my house at midnight and cleared the snow in a hurry. The job was well done and the gentlemen were highly professional. I am greatly indebted to PEF lawn care for their outstanding service that went above and beyond what I expected. I highly recommend them.

Chris Anfuso is one of the bright spots to my moving to the Philadelphia area. I needed some heavy landscaping work and (eventually) a fence for a newly-acquired property and Chris has been great in two main aspects: (1) Explaining the pros/cons of the many options, and (2) workmanship. Chris came out to the house to clear overgrown brush and mitigate some safety issues on the property. Chris displayed a good knowledge of the township laws with respect to the project, helped formulate a vision for a difficult corner property, and provided timely communication. Chris has been great about follow-ups and quotes for future projects. He turned my overgrown yard into a more manageable scene and cleared trouble areas (poison ivy!). He brought issues to my attention quickly and has been incredibly responsive. The initial project he completed was done thoroughly. Everything was hauled away and my yard looked presentable in under two days. He even trimmed up a tree (that wasn't in scope, mind you - just something we talked about in passing), just for the sake of detail. I found his pricing to be reasonable and I'm looking forward to engaging him for future projects.

I placed an add on Friday. Richard, from Falco Landscaping responded right away. We discussed the work I wanted and he came out to give me an estimate the next day as promised. It was a good price, and he didn’t try to sell me anything extra, or try convince me I needed to do anything more than the work we had already discussed. He told me the work would be done on Thursday. And it was. He and his crew did a great job, they treated me like I was a favorite regular client. They didn’t leave until everything was perfect. And it is! I’m very happy. He is honest, punctual, and perfection in a landscaper. I will use him again.

Trevor had the best value of all the landscapers we contacted. We had a tough backyard job that Trevor handled nicely. We are installing a new fence and wanted to extend it to the limits of our property line. However, there was a ton of brush, dead stumps, vegetation, stones, etc., making it impossible for installation. Trevor was able to thoroughly clear out the back yard area despite multiple obstacles. It now looks really good and ready for fence installation. We appreciated that he could accommodate our requests. He was patient and professional. We'll definitely be using his services again for future projects. Thanks to his hard work, we'll be able to expand our fenced property by nearly 1000 sq ft.

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.
