Steve disassembled, transported, and reassembled an older swingset for our backyard. Not only was he professional and prompt, but he went above and beyond to exceed our needs and he expectations. Steve helped us to replace parts that were not functional and went the extra mile to make sure the structure was safe for our son. He does it all! I recommend him to anyone, and we will surely be using him again in the future.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the job P.M.J. Landscaping did. He cleared out an area of my backyard that had been completely overgrown. It looks fabulous. Very professional and timely service. I will definitely call again.

MSF Landscapes recently reconstructed our barren city backyard into a shade garden paradise. Initially they leveled the backyard then laid down the hardscape. This was followed by plantings, installation of a drip irrigation/sprinkler system, arbor (with natural log posts) and mulching of the garden. In total they did everything, no sub contractors necessary with this company. Mark was great to work with very responsive and always pleasant. His mason/project manager, Jay, was fantastic and a very talented worker. He was also amenable to subtle change and a pleasure to work with. The rest of his crew was very professional and a pleasure to have around. His crew went so far as to mulch our front beds when they happened to have extra mulch after completion of the backyard which was very much appreciated. In conclusion, the job was very high quality and well done. We are exceptionally pleased with the job. I will post

Jose did incredible work. Took a messy, overgrown backyard and turned into a neat, clean space in just a few hours (see photos). Friendly, responsive, quick, and a fair price. I strongly recommend you hire him!

Mike was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. Our yard was in very rough shape but Mike came and did all of the things I asked him to do (trim trees and hedges; cut back an overgrown lilac bush, remove any debris from the backyard, etc). Mike and his workman did an excellent job, and the price was very fair. I highly recommend Mike, and we will be hiring him again in the spring! :)

Alex did a great job clearing the back dirt lot of my property. I tried to get another contractor to the job, and they did not want to get involved, due to the lot being dirt and a steep slope. Luckily I found Alex to take on the job, and he got it done! Alex is very easy to deal with, and the price was better than expected. I will be using him in the future for more landscape/design work. I would highly recommend him, he’s very easy to deal with.

I was extremely impressed with Junielson and his team. They replaced our backyard fence and installed a patio for us. Despite both projects being more difficult than expected (there was a surprising amount of large rocks and concrete buried in the yard), they pushed through without complaint and worked late to make up for lost time. They are hard workers, reasonably priced, and delivered quality work. I recommend them highly.

Baystate Group Associates recently finished our 750 sq foot basement and the end result far exceeded our expectations. Victor stayed engaged with my wife and I daily throughout the project and kept us updated on the progress daily. I don't think the basement would have come out as it did if Victor didn't make several great recommendations along the way in regards to the basement layout, fixtures, colors, and other specific details. The team's that were at our house at various times throughout the job made sure that everything was clean and spotless at the end of everyday. I highly recommend VIctor and Baystate Group Associates for any refinished basement, remodeling, or building needs.

Jesus did an AMAZING job cleaning up our backyard! We had originally hired another company but they fell through. We were left in a lurch because we needed to completely clear out our very overgrown backyard in preparation for a vinyl fence installation. Jesus came in at the very last minute, cleaned up everything very efficiently, and took all the clippings with him. My husband and I are very pleased with his work and look forward to hiring him for our monthly lawn maintenance!

I look forward to ongoing work with Russell. He's tremendously knowledgeable and has a lovely garden aesthetic. After his initial visit to assess our situation he sent a list of possible plants and flowers to include in our plan. Russell has been very flexible with our ever changing calendar -- our water lines have to be dug up and the dates have been repeatedly delayed. Our long-neglected gardens will be glorious come Spring. Many thanks to Russell.

We had Susan plan and design a project for the front of the house. We were thrilled with the result of the perennial garden - so many textures and heights and movement which included beautiful grasses, flowers, and flowering plants. Her team is easy to work with and knowledgeable. We were so pleased, we had her do another small project this year.

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.
