I hired L.A. Professional Tree,Shrub,&Landscaping Design to cut some branches on a tree that was over grown and crossed over/onto my property line. The tree is a Bradford pear so I was very concerned of it splitting and possibly falling onto my house. Alex came over to take a look at the tree and gave me a fair estimate. A few days later Lauren text me stating the job was done! They did a great job on the project and cleaned up very well. I will most definitely recommend their services to others and also hire them again if need be. Happy Customer in LaVergne!

I live in Stafford, Virginia and I went, on Thumbtack, to find someone to do some work, at my mother's house in Gallatin, Tennessee. I received two responses, the second one from Mr. Rumney ofTotal Ground Maintenance. Being a Marine, I was extremely pleased with his truthful assessment and prompt attention. My mother also stated her pleasure in talking with Mr. Rumney, so we selected him to do the work. Needless to say, he and his crew, did an OUTSTANDING job and went the extra mile. Plus, we maintained constant communication and he sent me pictures of the completed work. I anticipate a long relationship, with Total Ground Maintenance. Larry G. Carmon

We just completed our initial meeting and Ricky is a very impressive young man. His prices are reasonable and he seems to know what he is doing. He will be back this Saturday, April 25, to begin the lawn maintenance and working with us on our flower beds and bush trimming. He made the promise that we would be the envy of the whole neighborhood. Will write another review on Saturday.

Joseph was super responsive from the beginning and was out there working hard by himself or with his crew. We had our (very large) beds demoed and many plants installed. We had plans sketched and he did a great job locating all the plants and installing them in accordance with the plans. He did everything we asked and even passed along his discount to us when we bought from a local nursery. His price was very reasonable, maybe too reasonable actually, for the amount of work he did. Will definitely be employing him again, if only for mulching and maintenance.

For 16 years I had a problem of trying to get any type of grass to grow under my large oak tree. I had it pruned, but the roots had become so large that I thought perhaps ivy would be a better solution. But I still didn't know how ivy could spread with those roots in the way. Justin King, whom I had researched, solved my problem by removing what grass there was, then applying a layer of top soil, followed by mulch before planting any ivy. He first drew the outline of where the mulch would be - to ensure definition - before steps two and three. He also extended my flower beds with mulch and planted just the right ground cover to enhance balance on both sides of my walkway and around my mailbox to create interest. Vision, problem solver, attention to detail, good execution, interactive personality, reasonable rates, on-time delivery = high value = high quality. That's why I would recommend Justin King for any landscaping project. Kathryn Huddleston, Ph.D., published author in quality and customer satisfaction genres

Greenwood BAM and Derrick did an amazing job on my estate. His attention to detail was so appreciated and hard to come by. He was prompt and worked very hard to complete the work exactly as I wanted and at such a reasonable price. I don't think there is anything they can't do. He was a pleasure to do business with. I would highly recommend him for any of your lawn maintence and home improvement needs. Thank you for a job well done.

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.
