On a scale of 1 to 10-Richard, his lovely wife, and team are at lest a 12. I thought I knew what I wanted, but there was a big factor, money. Still, with a limited budget, Richard walked me ever so patiently looking at possibilities I never dreamed of. I now have substantially more than I ever thought possible and I can thank Richard, his team and wife. Example, I wanted hard scape around the whole house. He took it to a new level and it looks like a lazy, wandering, (very natural) dry creek bed. There are larger dark rock boundaries that turn black when wet and create a breathtaking contrast. I have a lovely seating area in the front with my precious huge Oaks nicely protected by a lovely "designer" bedding. Add to this new grass on both sides and the front and there it is. But wait there is more, a complete irrigation system front and back, with timer, rain gauge, etc. the back yard is now home to my veggie/flower garden. And grass of course, but Richard prepared a two tier raised bed that is fun to work. Richard designed it all. I can take no credit, other than be excited to come every day and see the progress. My neighbors are very impressed and a few are looking at hiring Richard later down the road. Folks at work love the pics and are asking about him as well. While they worked, and they did work hard..the whole team was super polite and friendly. No loud music blaring, as you so often hear on projects. No trash talk and no trash. Cleaned everything up every day. Just hard honest labor and with a smile. If you let Richard go and use his God given talent, he is very creative and surrounds himself with creative young men who value honesty and hard work as does Richard. I would be amiss if I left Crystal out. She is every bit as wonderful, kind, honest, hardworking and creative as her husband. Lovely sweet lady. Rare these days. My plan was get it done and make it easy for me to maintain, however I am so impressed with Ground Force, I want to keep them on for lawn maintenance. In fact they have already come back and mowed twice. Everyday it looks better and better. Now, I can just play in my giant garden. There are no negatives in my book. They are A#1 all the way. Ground Force Landscaping is my kind of business. Richard, thank you for your service to our country and thank for being you! For allowing me to meet your wife and see my old worn out yard thru fresh eyes. Making a dream come true-on a budget. May God Bless you, your business and your family! I am not a great photographer so the pics do no justice to Richards work. So Sorry, but wanted to give you an idea. From weeds and dirt and a foot of acorns to this... Ground Force Landscaping is definitely the company you need to hire.

Sean was an awesome help to our hellish front yard! He cleared all the weeds, and SNAKES, added mulch, and planted a bunch of flowers for our new beautiful garden. I will definitely hire him again the next time I need anything gardening related at our house. Punctual, friendly, and responds in a very timely manner. Thank you again! Cheers

Nicholas rebuilt a pond for me that was poorly constructed and over priced by Hill Country Water Garden. He rebuilt the original pond much larger and added on an extra spill for me at a reasonable price. He comes every Monday to maintain the pond and is amazing. He takes his time and pays much attention to detail. He is extremely creative in his ideas and has outstanding work ethics. He is exceptionally trust worthy and has an awesome knowledge of all outdoor construction. His personality is like sunshine. I highly recommend him for any outside projects. Most importantly he is very respectful and treats my pets with care.

While the actual work has not yet been performed (my fault, not his!), Roy has been great to work with so far on my project. He is very responsive by phone/text/email. He understood what I want to accomplish in putting in a small Japanese garden. I am confident that the work will be excellent.

      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.
