Excellent company with great work ethics. Anthony carefully reviewed in detail, all the landscape work to be done in our backyard, the specific equipment to be used, including the soil removal and "layering" process to assure long term results. Our project was over 3,000 square feet. If we could, we would definitely recommend this company with a 6-star rating.

General Moore Contractors did a variety of jobs for me. Put up a new fence, power washed the house, replaced broken cement, power washed the cement and cleared and trimmed branches. He was very reasonable and professional. The job was done on time and he provided pictures of the completed work.

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.

We are still in the planning stages of my landscaping but I have found Andrew to be very knowledgeable about what he is doing. He has kept in touch while our planning continues. I think that he will be working out to a great collaboration.

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.
