It has taken me two days to come up with the right words to express my satisfaction with back2 new cleaning specifically father and son lawn care. Travis Jones is the absolute best. I received a txt that he would arrive in 20 minutes. We previously discussed what I needed and want. After an hour I assumed he cancelled. I went to my front door only to find thst he was half way finished with the project!! I didn't havevto ask or remind him of anything. This young man was absolutely remarkable. Actually, after meet h with him initially, I passed him on yo several people because of his talent, prromptness, honesty, care, professionalism, and mannerisms. I highly recommend Travis to anyone that needs landscaping work. I'm totally pleased with his work. And if you give him a try, I assure you, you'll be totally satisfied. Valerie Allen

We hired Topps Lawn Care two weeks ago and they did an outstanding job on our lawn! They raked, bagged , and hauled off all of our fall/winter leaves and more. I absolutely recommend them for future landscaping needs.

My experience with total lawn care and landscape was AMAZING Chris was very perfessional and answered all questions and concerns I had about my yard. Him and his team were promot, professional, with excellent quality service. The first three pictures show how bad our dogs dig up the original sod that was not laid properly which left big holes around the yard the we even placed bricks to fill in some of the holes in the fence line. If you need a quality lawn care and landscaping I highly recommend them.

Our project was a retaining wall around a new garage. Nick's work is of exceptional quality and value. He put a great deal of effort in ensuring proper drainage and it looks great. Will hire again.

    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.
