I hired PEF to do some hardscaping in the front and never doubted they did everything possible to make me happy. I can be picky from time to time and they did a great job stopping to make sure my vision came to life. Would I hire again... already did to do some more hardscaping in my backyard. I will refer to friends and family!

Iorio did an excellent job repairing a leak that had plagued me for more than 2 years and no other contractors wanted to repair. He did such good work, I hired them to stucco my entire home and brick my chimney and front porch. Iorio met my expectations.

I'm am very pleased with the work of J&R concrete construction. I never knew how excited I would be about the pouring of some concrete. Being that I live miles away, they put me at ease and trusted me as well have been very respectful. I've had issues with other contractors in the past (Transitional Xscapes) that failed to do the work and took off with my money. J&R not only put me at ease but made sure it was done in a timely manner. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them to others! Outstandingly outstanding!!!

George completed several indoor and outdoor household jobs for us, including deck repair and staining, hanging blinds, dry wall repair, and a number of other small items. Unlike many other contractors, George is the consummate professional. He is responsible, reliable, always on time, extremely fair and does top notch work. We are very happy to have found him and we agree "let George do it!"

I initially contacted Steven for a simple sink repair; however, I quickly needed other work performed. He has since installed drywall, repaired and painted the concrete in my utility closet, and installed a GFI outlet in my bathroom. His work is impeccable. I highly recommend Get a Project Completed. And will happily request his professional contractor services in the future.

Catania Masonry

Verified review

Our GC hired Catania after we found him on this website to tile two new bathrooms. Unfortunately, the workmanship was not acceptable - with tile not centered, spacing inconsistent and uneven (not smooth to the touch), and now we are really upset that John is not calling our GC back to resolve this unfortunate situation as a true professional contractor would. Problems happen. How you handle them and take responsibility is what makes you a true professional. I will update this review when John follows through with his promise to take responsibility for the problem he has created on our project.

Charlie put all new sod in our decent-sized back yard. He was the only contractor we called who did a soil test and he was very knowledgeable in his recommendations for fertilizing to amend the soil. He did the job 3 months ago and our lawn still looks like a perfect green carpet.

MBM Construction has now done multiple jobs on my home and property and I am extremely pleased. Each time, I have felt comfortable about the objective of the jobs, felt that Chaz acted with professionalism, and I am happy I chose this company. Unfortunately, there are some questionable contractors out there, however, MBM is anything but. The trimwork on my home looks fantastic! My renovated basement (thanks to Chaz) is my favorite place to relax. Also, MBM extracted and replaced my concrete walkway and it looks great! As a first time homeowner, I am proud of the work MBM has done and I cannot wait to show my family and friends the beautiful updates!

Mike was very helpful and pleasant to talk to. I am not sure what we are doing at this point, but he took time to give me ideas and information, as well as some approximate pricing. Not many contractors are willing to spend their time off, in the evenings to talk with you. Mike did so and was absolutely great!! We will definitely be calling him when we are ready to tackle our project. .

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.
