Thank you, Alex for the wonderful landscape job you did. We are so pleased with the results. Removing the overgrown shrubs and monkey grass has made such an improvement to the look of our house. Looking forward to watching the new shrubs and trees you planted take root and fill out. Thanks again for all your hard work.

Mr. Marshall was professional, responsive, reliable, and efficient, cutting my grass quickly, and without damage to trees or shrubbery, which sometimes happens when weed eating. He maintained a positive attitude, and seemed trustworthy.

I hired Allen's Home Services to add mulch to my existing landscape area. Allen arrived on time, did a fantastic job including clean-up after the job was completed and at a much lower price than my previous landscape contractor. I give my highest recommendation to Allen's Home Services.

We hired Eric and Tru Cut Lawns to do some landscaping at our house. From the beginning, and throughout the process, Eric was exremely courteous and professional. He was always available to answer our questions and was very prompt about returning phone calls. We are completely satisfied with the work Eric did at our house. He showed up at our house on time, always cleaned up around the area he was working, and gave us an excellent price for the work he did. Our neighbors even came by asking for his card after seeing the work he did so that they could have him do some landscape work for them as well. I am very pleased with the outcome of the work performed by Eric and Tru Cut Lawns. I have used other landscape companies in the area in the past and I will say that without a doubt, Eric and Tru Cut Lawns is the most professional out of all of them. I have recommended him and his company to others and will continue to do so.

Our landscaping was out of control and in need of immediate attention. Lawnscape came out (on a Saturday) to provide an estimate for the work to be done. We were on their schedule for the work within a few days and they came the day they promised...on time. I am very pleased with the work completed which included driveway entrance/gate area, retaining wall frontage, front and sides of the house and patio area. The work included trimming, pruning, weeding, mulching/feeding and cleaning up and hauling away the debris. They're honest. They work hard. They do a great job.

I can not thank Orlando and his crew from Lindsay's Music City Tree and Landscaping enough! My tree damage was major and Orlando came almost immediately, gave me an incredible quote for the amount of work that needed to be done, and knocked out the job in record time! I look forward to working with Orlando and his crew on several other landscaping projects I need done!

Very satisfied. I had initially hired him just for lawn mowing, but ended up getting landscaping and seeding done too. While I await the results for seeding until Spring season, I am very satisfied with landscaping and lawn mowing. I will be using him on a regular basis.

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.
