I had 4 overgrown trees in a small backyard. The branches were overtaking my small deck and scraping my roof . Had to cut one down and canopied the other ones. Jared responded quickly and he came to my house to give a quote within a few hours of requesting help. Worked with my work schedule so I could be there while the work was being done. In 90+ heat the crew finished the job quickly and did exactly what I requested.

We hired Antonio a couple months back to fill a hole left from a pool in our backyard. He did such a great job. He was very good an communicating and was very flexible as we were out of town during the time he did the work. Our backyard looks great! We will definitely hire him again for future landscaping work.

Wow! Same day service -- Tim contacted me right after I posted on Thumbtack. He and his crew cut down a ton of overgrowth in my backyard and hauled off all the debris. I was so impressed. They trimmed and cleaned up the front yard too. My front and back yard have never looked better. We are going to use Fisher Outdoors for regular mowing and trimming too. I highly recommend.

I just moved into this house and the previous owners hadn't raked the leaves. I got about 1/3 of the backyard done and realized it was too big a job. Enter Josh, he was one of the first to respond to my request, came out the next day and gave me an estimate. He would have done the job the next day but I was still waiting for another estimate. Josh did the work right after I hired him, and answered all my questions. I also hired him to take care of routine mowing next year.

We recently purchased a house and the yard needed some work. I had Andre remove several mature bushes that I didn't like; , clean up the leaves from last Fall that were left; and mow the lawn. He is Awesome! Andre works hard, and he is honest, friendly, gives great service for the price, is competitive with his prices, and stays until the job gets done or if he needs to return to finish the job, he returns on the day and time he said he would be here. One day he was going to be a little late and he called me immediately to tell me and to make sure it was OK with me. He is so thorough, that we hired him to perform our weekly lawn mowing and I already have another landscaping job planned for him to complete. My husband and I recommend his services. DF

When David came to our house to build a simple wooden deck and patio cover, we had no idea what we really wanted. After David drew up several possible plans, my wife and I decided we wanted to change to a pave stone patio, so David rolled with the punches and drew up several new ideas for us. We finally came to a decision and David jumped on the project. What an incredibly hard worker! His expertise in construction is evident in his work. Every joint is perfect, every cut on the money. He never got frustrated with all of the changes we threw at him and has created a backyard oasis for us that we love! Start to finish on this job was about 6 weeks, mostly because of the changes we kept making. We could not have chosen a better man for the job! I have another project down the road and hope David is available (to come back to Austin, TX) to handle it for us! Thank You David!

Man how could I not write a Super Glowing Review about my Newest Brother in Life and Landscaping! I had a few quotes but I knew Kevin was my guy from the first handshake! Not only did he and his team at K&R performane an absolutely amazing Service but the Price was incredibly fair! No only that but Kev was also more than happy to pressure wash the front of our home after we both discovered the dirt and grime the Holly berry he removed left behind! So... Let's Recap to really drive this one home. Tree / Stump Removal, Gutters Cleaned, Front House Pressure Washed, Front lawn Mowed and Leaves Removed, Mulched, Manacured the Area around our Mailbox and Managed to still cut down a dead tree in our backyard and so graciously even cut the wood up for our Fire Pit! All that in 1 1/4 work dayso! I mean he knocked this job so far out of the park is had to get a Selfie together! How Rare is that?! Thank you and the great team you put together for this job Brother Kev!

George did a fantastic job working with us on adding a paver patio and landscaping to our backyard. He visited our house multiple times to have design meetings with us and was able to take our vision for a backyard gathering place and turn it into a reality! We had a fairly tight budget but George was quite willing to work through it with us to get the best product for what we could spend. He took the time to take us out to the plant nursery and guide us through the process of picking out the plants that would be in our yard. George has a great eye for design and his customer service cannot be beat. The quality of the installation is unmatched as well.

Shannon's work was outstanding. He arrived timely, courteous and friendly. Explained the job and went above and beyond in getting the job done. He even power washed a small shed in our backyard. The house looks great. When he finished the job, he made sure that I was satisfied. He had me inspect the job to make sure that everything was the way I expected. I would absolutely recommend Shannon. Fantastic Job!!!

Excellent experience. He bid the on job, won the bid and followed through with all aspects of the bid in a timely matter. His job was a landscape of front porch plantings, replaced some plants that were destroyed by ice this winter and mulching of all beds. He also fixed some paver stones in a backyard walkway..

When my wife and I purchased our home, the backyard was an absolute mess. Gravel, glass, trash, and more. All that combined for no grass, and lots of mud. When I made my request, Josh came out within a day to check out our yard and was able to provide me a rough estimate on the spot. After working it up, he actually quoted me $400 less than we had originally discussed! Once I gave him the go ahead, Josh was out by the end of the week to get it knocked out! We had Josh grade out the entire backyard, get it nice and level, add top soil, then seed and straw it. I looked outside this morning, and like a chia pet, our grass is starting to grow and it's looking beautiful! People usually say you can have cheap, fast, or quality... pick two. Well, I am happy to say that Josh was reasonably priced, got it done quick, and did great quality work. Couldn't ask for much more.

    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.

    How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

    Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

    • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
      • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
      • One time only: $45 per service.
        • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
    • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
    • Lot size:
      • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
      • Half-acre lot: $50.
      • One-acre lot: $100.
