J&J was the first tree cutting service that responded to my inquiry. They were very friendly and professional. Their estimate was very reasonable. J&J worked with me and my landlord to have a tree removed, hauled and stump removal from the front yard and a tree trimmed in the backyard. When they arrived to complete the job they were fast and efficient. I would highly recommend J&J tree and lawn service. The next time the trees need to be trimmed I will call J&J!

We were pressed for time to get our entire backyard sodded for a party, and with very short notice, John worked us in 3 days ahead of their original timeline. They did a great job at a competitive price, and John went above and beyond the norm to have the project completed in time for our party. I highly recommend John, Joey and their crew, and will be using them on our future landscaping projects.

Memphis Construction Etc worked closely with us to build what we wanted, but within our budget constraints. They were creative in their design ideas and the finished product, which includes a screened in gazebo, is awesome.

We had hired two men driving down the street with a truck bed full of mulch to renew & refresh our flowerbeds. As you see in the "Before" pictures the partial damage they caused, due to their lack of knowledge about anything landscape oriented, except loading their truck up with mulch and going around our subdivision selling 3 wheelbarrows full of mulch for $85 each. They did not know what they were doing, we realized that after about a hour when we came out side to check on these guys. Come to find out they had zero ideas about what they were trying to accomplish & they job they started had to have been a downer for the crew with Hamilton's Outdoor Designs, LLC. Robert J Hamilton and his crew arrived 15 minutes prior to the time he said they would be at my house to start the job. The previous person or fly by night company left everything looking like a disaster had hit our front yard. As soon has Hamilton's crew got on the job site the immediately got to work. After removing all the scattered landscape fabric and gathering all the flowerbed border blocks they stacked them nice & neat so they would be out of the way. Once all the debris and trash was removed from out of the flowerbeds the crew took the 20" Rear Tine Tiller and stirred up the existing soil. Once Robert Hamilton & his crew got it all tilled up then came the hardest part of the entire job; and that was removing (5 qty) 25 year old Holly Bush stumps. First they tried digging them out with no success. Next they rented a stump grinder for the day, but it would not breakup hot butter. So step three the crew took a reciprocating saw with a pruning blade and dug around the base until the root system was seen by the naked eye. After digging and using a saw the 100lb + roots were still dug so deep into the ground that it only left one solution to their problem. Robert went back to HomeDepot for a 30' tow-chain. Once Robert and his crew had the chain they had figured out the best system to pull those huge heavy stumps out of the ground and to the curb for trash pick-up. First they took a sharpshooter and got deep enough to expose the roots, then they took the reciprocating saw and cut all the roots that were visible, after each stump was exposed with most of the roots cut , Robert took his 30' tow chain and tied it under and around the Holly Bush stumps while hooking the other end of the tow chain to his GMC Sierra 1500 4x4. Robert then left plenty of slack in the chain, so his brand new 2017 truck backed up a little more then he threw in it 4x4 mode and pulled all five 100lb + stumps out of the ground with ease. That took the crew close to 6 hours to remove all the stumps. Now that they hard part was finished came the exciting part for my wife and I. They put down 3 yards of fresh garden mix soil, then laid landscape fabric down to keep grass & weeds out of the beds, but allowing water to flow through the fabric so it would reach the roots of the new trees and shrubs. After everything was planted they then installed a drainage system off all the down spouts coming off our gutters, so water would not build up and wash away the 3 yards of fresh mulch they put down. I not only rate them with 5 starts, but I will definitely be using Hamilton's Outdoor Designs LLC for future projects; such as pouring me a 550 sq.ft stained concrete patio. I would also recommend them to all my family, friends, and coworkers. They did not call the job finished until my wife and I looked everything over and told them how pleased we are with their work. That is saying a lot about how much they care about the customer's satisfaction. Thank you, John Buolamwini

I had them come by and help me design and install a flower bed as a gift to my father for Fathers day. They did a wonderful job. George was helpful in deciding what flowers to choose, as I am not knowledgeable when it comes to flowers. He came up with the placements of the flowers and installed them as well. Very well priced and a hard worker. Would recommend to anyone for any yard services.

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.
