He and his team worked a long day to finish the job and did great work... We would be eager to hire him again... He will be performing our lawn service for the season as well...

Chris did a fantastic job given the slope and uneven terrain of my yard. Weather played a major factor in getting the job done but I was always informed about delays and knew when things were going to happen. The work was finished much quicker than I expected and the price was better than I expected. It was a pleasure working with him and I will definitely use him for my next fence job.

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.

I am not one to write a review unless I feel it is well deserved but Productive Construction Services LLC has exceeded my expectations! Tony was able to salvage my backyard project that was ruined from a previous contractor. Tony was upfront and honest with me throughout the whole phase of the project from offering recommendations on how to give me a finished product but and looking to ways to be cost efficient. I would highly recommend using PCS on any and all future projects from home renovations to landscaping needs. It's a relief knowing I can count on and trust Tony and PCS to get the job done right the first time!

Cambria Landscape and Lawn Services recently stained our deck. Charles gave us a really competitive quote, was very communicative during the scheduling process, and completed the project on time. The deck looks beautiful! Charles and his co-worker who helped him complete the job were super friendly. I would strongly recommend Cambria Landscape and Lawn Services and look forward to using them again in the future on other outdoor projects!

Vincent and his team did a great job on replacing 2 flat roofs for me. What i like was the details, we went on the roof together as he explained what work they were going to do in removing and replacing the roof. He also explained in detail the material, technique and process they would use. He always followed up to my emails, texts, and phone calls. He gave me a great price and outstanding AAA+ WORK & SERVICE! I had a couple other estimates but they did not take the time and service like Diamond Restoration and Roofing, this is what set them apart from the rest, actually listening and addressing all my questions and concerns. He also sent me pictures with updates or if things needed to be addressed he would let me know of other issues in need of repair. They went above and beyond and exceeding my expectations! Thank you Diamond Restoration!

My side yard surrounding my patio was overgrown with 6 foot high sweets and tree stumps small and large throughout. Bucks County Nursery came in and did a great job clearing it out, setting the beds, and planting a row of hollies as a privacy hedgerow. The completed project looked fantastic and was done quickly. The knowledge and options presented at the start of the project was great in helping our decision making process as easy as possible. I highly recommend BCN, and would use them again should any more major yard projects come up.

My experience with Weber Landscaping was great and I would highly recommend. In addition to regularly scheduled lawn care and maintenance, I also utilized their services to create a plant bed in front of my property, which turned out lovely. David's expertise on what type of plants in the plant bed might survive the elements, based on the type of soil and how much sunlight the area received was greatly appreciated. Additionally, he had great insight on what type of lawn treatment might work best to improve my grass. David and his crew were always very professional and it was a pleasure working with them. If I hadn't moved out of the area I would still be using his services.

Last year I decided to switch lawn care providers because I wasn't happy with the service my old lawn care company was providing. A neighbor of mine told me about Green Hill, and so I gave them a call. I'm really happy I did!! Green Hill is reliable, punctual and thorough. They have offered me services that has my lawn looking better than it ever has! Now my lawn is the envy of the neighborhood and I'm recommending to my neighbors,who are fed up with their unreliable service, that they make the switch to Green Hill. Anyone who wants immediate, reliable service at an affordable price should give Green HIll a call!

Jessica was great! She was able to tell me what type of flowers would work best for my space and taught me how frequently to water the plants and flowers. My garden looks great even after this extra hot summer. Reasonable prices and great work.

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.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

How much does it cost to landscape your front yard?

Prices for landscaping your front yard can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the scale of your front yard project. Your landscaping price will reflect how much change you implement, how much labor is required, and the cost of materials.

Landscaping is typically made up of softscaping and hardscaping. Softscaping refers to selecting trees, bushes, flowers and plants to achieve a desired aesthetic and to meet goals such as having a drought-tolerant yard. Hardscaping refers to moving earth, installing structures, and putting in decorative stonework, sidewalks or lighting. For softscaping, you may want to hire a landscape designer to consult on your plants and layout, and then do the digging and planting yourself or hire a gardner to handle the heavy lifting. A landscape designer’s hourly rate may range from $50 to $150 or more. If you want a turnkey approach, meaning someone who works with you to create the vision and then executes all the work, landscaping pricing will typically come down to a cost per square foot rather than an hourly rate. It’s a solid investment: Great landscaping can add up to 28 percent value to your home.

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.
