Martins Garden Service provides exceptional landscaping service! Martin’s work is top notch. The clean up was so good that you couldn't tell he had even been here. Prices are extremely reasonable considering his extensive horticulture knowledge and eye for detail. My landscape looks like a park setting and I already scheduled him for work next Spring.

I highly recommend Precision Property Services. Ryan gave me a fair price for my garden project. He was very prompt, professional, courteous, efficient, and used quality materials. Going forward, I am planing to use Precision Property Services for my other lawn and garden projects.

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.

I hired JCM to come out and take away a bunch of branches/shrubs that I cut down. Their price was extremely reasonable and they did a great job in taking what I asked and cleaning up. I would hire them again for landscaping needs.

First, my quote came when he said it would. For me this is a big deal. If you can't get the basics right, how can I trust you'll get the work done as promised? I had my firepit reset, 5 huge bushes ripped out and the land prepped for grass, edging and mulch around my pool area, 50 tree stumps removed and grass planted, and my garden fence fixed. This wasn't all in the original plan but once I saw the quality of work and the fair price, I added projects. My neighbors have been raving about the consistent hard work he did and the transformation to my property. I have yet to find a landscaper I'll stick with due to work not being complete right and the high cost. Not only was the work I asked for done correctly, he also did a few things just to make sure it looked good. He trimmed and shaped the overgrown bushes, removed the forest growing around my kids play area, and set my tiki torches in place. This is a hardworking group who goes above and beyond what they promise. Two of my neighbors have already asked for the information for next year solely based off of how hard they worked. Once I added how fairly priced they are, I think it sealed the deal. This will be my go to company from now on. Small business owners make it happen because their livelihood depends on it. This is evident in the work they put in. There are alot of people who claim they are family owned and operated. This one actually is. Hire them, you won't be disappointed!

I needed 6 large knock out roses trimmed. Dan arrived within his time frame, completed the work, and cleaned up the clippings. His price was very reasonable. I plan to hire Dan again in the Spring, and highly recommend him.

Scott Moore of Peerless Lawnscapes LLC and Zach felled a very large pine tree and 2 apple trees. Additionally, 10 other trees were trimmed as well. All wood and debris were removed. Scott advises and explains what he will do and then he does it. If I have future requirements for tree service or landscaping, I will be sure to call Peerless Landscapes. Ron Depew

Mike Allison came on the day he said he would. Before 10 days of rain I fertilized my lawn. He mowed my 9" high lawn twice to make sure he got everything. He collected all of the cut grass. He trimmed everything that needed to be trimmed. He cleaned up the sidewalks and driveway well and he stayed until 8:30 pm to make sure it was done right. The cost was reasonable considering the amount of work required to get the lawn back to normal. Now I can get back to mowing it myself again.

McCleaf Landscaping never disappoints. We have used Shane and his crew for several projects as well as lawn care. From trimming, cutting and planting shrubs, trees and flowers their landscaping skills are second to none. They do an excellent job of treating our lawn and keeping it neatly trimmed throughout the season. They also take care of snow removal when needed.

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.
