Devin responded within hours of my request (on a weekend evening). He was able to estimate and complete the job the next day removing a nest with 4 baby squirrels from my gutter and then blocking future entry. I will likely use him again...he handles practically everything oustide the house, including lawn and landscape work. A pleasure to deal with someone who has an obvious work ethic.

Tommy was very responsive, timely, and incredibly knowledgeable about all things lawn and landscape related. He was easy to communicate with and offered reasonable, competitive rates. Tommy and his crew mowed and trimmed my lawn for the first time today and did a beautiful job! I intend to continue to use Trim Time not just for mowing/trimming, but landscape services as well. Give Tommy a call - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

From the beginning, we had a great experience with Chris and his team at Trinity Landscapes! We wanted to upgrade our patio but we weren’t creative enough to know what to do. Chris was full of great suggestions to make the patio a true conversation piece while still honoring our budget. He was able to help us get the most bang for our buck, and we couldn’t be happier with the result! The quality of work and professionalism is the best I have seen in this business, and they really do take pride in their work. Chris communicated with us throughout the process and was meticulous in ensuring our yard was still taken care of during the construction period. We have gotten so many compliments on our new paver patio, fire pit with seating, and built in counter. I highly recommend going with Trinity Landscapes. I would go with them again 100 times over!

Hired them to landscape an area in front of the house to offer more curb appeal and add some color and definition to an otherwise drab area. They were professional, reasonably priced and timely. They viewed the area, presented a proposal and had the area planted in 10 days. I would definitely hire them again.

I hired them to put dark mulch on four flower beds and around three trees. They did a wonderful job. Price was reasonable and I did not have to stay home for the job to be done. However, they wanted cash instead of check. It was alright; I will use their service again. Hopefully they will accept check next time.

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.
