Eberardo and his wife did an amazing job on my front yard--trimming and shaping up my shrubs, applying stone around my flowerbeds, and mulching and planting flowers in the beds. They did the shrubs and cleaned up the flowerbeds the first day and the rest the second day, despite a wet yard from the rain earlier that morning. Eberardo took care of my yard and cleaned up like it was his own. I am very happy with my yard and hope to use them again in the future. You can't go wrong with Eberardo!

Mr Wright was responsive and professional. He mowed my vacant lot, and the grass was knee-deep in places. I plan to use his services throughout the summer. He offered an initial price for the long grass, and a lower price for periodic mowing. I also hired him to remove a broken branch and clean up and area. All work was well done.

David is a busy man but he showed up on time for his appointment. He talked to me about my ideas and presented his thoughts. He gave me a terrific estimate for planting new flowerbeds in the front and bushes in the back. His prices were extremely reasonable and he broke it down with several choices and prices. He has a good eye for design and color and knows what works in sun and shade. His crew did a fine job and it looks terrific. It was finished in one day. He also returned to add an underground hose to the downspout so that it would not flood the flower beds. During the entire process he communicated with me by text and phone. He is an extremely nice man who takes pride in his work. He and his crew did a great job!

The process was easy and the job was scheduled quickly. They did a great job with old plant removal and new planting as well as tweaking my sprinkler system for adequate water coverage. Also added a brick border to eliminate erosion problem. My new bed looks so much better. Green Landscape was professional, courteous, efficient, and reasonable. I will use them again.

Eric was great. We are having a wedding in our back yard. Southwest built a new cedar fence. We needed some landscaping and 2 trees planted so we could light them. The work was very professional. Those guys worked hard and were CLEAN. My biggest concern was we needed to keep the grass spotless. Very professional owner and would recommend if you want no BS and results without wastin time and money. John Price

Developed and implemented a plan, installing a new flowerbed in the backyard SW corner and along the back property line. Extensive planting, mulching and replacing all metal borders in front and back with cut stone and placing ornamental rock around 3 big trees and 2 shrubs. Adjusting irrigation to ensure total coverage of the new plants. Larry and Curtis were very helpful and cooperative and the crew did a good job. The price was reasonable and within my budget. The job was completed on time. At this point I am not sure that some of the plants will make it, but with a 1 year warranty I am confident that this will be dealt with if need be. Bottomline: I would use them again and recommend them to others.

Salado was on time, courteous and professional during the estimate and was early on the day of the service. Just as the previous ratings depicted, he cleaned after himself and even cut the branches into usable firelogs for me to put in my fire pit. Will definitely use again and will gladly inform my neighbors and friends of his company if they are long for tree services and other landscaping needs.

Their design and choosing of the plants was outstanding that matched the location and accentuated the house. They allowed us to choose the plants with them at the nursery. They designed everything on paper first and then allowed us to make changes so we could see what it looked like before proceeding. They worked well with our other contractors and actually managed the whole project. Jeff was there supervising all activities and installation. Very refreshing. They met all their commitments and schedule and the follow-up was outstanding. Their work and design makes you say wow! Very personal service in working and coordinating with the owners. Would HIGHLY recommend them. We will use them again for our back yard project around our pool. Love their work!

Baldi Gardens has done beautiful and conscientious work for me for several years. They know every aspect of landscaping, but they also listen well to the people who are their customers. When you do business with them, you will be heard and offered outstanding customer service! I love the gorgeous flowering plants they placed around the outside of my house, and the trees they suggested I use on my property. I heartily recommend their work!

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.
