We had quite a project for Buster Gunter. Had a water problem and our backyard was like a swamp. Buster and his crew installed 3 drains put layers of dirt and then put sod down. We then had questions about making a better fence for our pet tortoise. He came up with a great design at a low cost and did it in a very timely manner. We are thankful to have found this company. They definitely take pride in their work.

Long Bay Landscape Company was great to work with in landscaping my backyard. They were easy to work with and finished the job exactly as promised. My backyard looked great when they were finished. I went away for the weekend and when I returned my yard was beautifully landscaped. I also contracted Long Bay to maintain my yard with regular lawn care and they were always dependable. My yard never looked better. I would highly recommend this company and their services. Resa Baumann resident of Plantation Lakes

Did a great job with redesigning our walkway and placement for everything to make our yard feel bigger and look a lot better! I really appreciate how well Andrew knew what he was talking about when we discussed the layout and design of the plants, mulch, etc., and how efficiently they got the job done. Thank you so much guys.

Shane removed 3 large pine trees from our backyard. They completed the project on time and for the price they quoted. They were very conscious of my lawn, which was very wet from all of the rain we have received, and cleaned up well after the trees were removed. I would recommend Shane and his team.

We bought our house few months ago and since that moment nobody took care of our yard. The backyard most of all was a real disaster! We called David and he completely transformed it. He really did a great job removing all the weeds and dead leaves and trimming all the trees and bushes. He also removed a dead palm. You can see that he loves his job, he gave us many good ideas to improve even more the appearance of our yard and we will call him again for sure to realize them! We recommend him, as well as he is a great worker he is also a really nice person!

From the very first contact Vets4U provided excellent service. I requested a quote online and within minutes (it seems) we started talking. (Text/chat). Soon after we met first the first time. They had a professional proposal ready to go. We discussed my vision and my budget. They are very upfront with pricing. Next thing I know they sent examples of plants to get an idea of my style. Once I’m they confirmed my style they sent a complete design!!!! They scheduled a date and the rest was history. You can see the results from the gorgeous pictures. Everything was on time and right on schedule. I needed tree work done and the recommended a company that was just as awesome! Robert accommodated every single one of my adjustments and didn’t stop until everything was perfect! I couldn’t believe it finished right on schedule. Also, I signed up for the regular maintenance. I highly recommend this company!!!! They rock!!!!!

Scott and Jenna installed a small patio outside our lanai, and our experience working with them was wonderful! From the initial consult, through various iterations of design, and through the final install they were always extremely responsive and showed great attention to detail (not to mention tremendous work ethic and pride in their work). We would highly recommend them for any project large or small.

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.
