I am so happy that I used Angel’s Tree Service. I’ve used other tree services around town that were completely unaffordable and unhelpful. Miguel from Angel’s was very informative and offered me a wonderful price for all the work he did. They showed up on time for a consultation and got the job done the same day. Five stars! I highly recommend this company.

I would highly recommend Greg Powell. He did a great job and more than I expected. He edged all the sides and even cut the long grass along the fence and around the house, which past lawn mowing services have not done. He was very professional and arrived on time and very friendly. I will definitely be using his services again.

I inherited a horrible backyard with my new house. American Arbors came in with innovative ideas that absolutely transformed the yard. They took great care to ensure the planting and the plants were perfect (the person who chooses the plants is fantastic) and the follow through was amazing. They even stopped by after the project to make sure everything was thriving. I couldn't be happier.

I put out and add in thumbtack to get an oak tree in the front yard trimmed, a big privacy shrub removed and an average sized red oak in the backyard removed. A few agencies replied and all seemed like fine prices. When Mr. Salas responded and said no additional charge for the stump grinder for the removal of the backyard tree (all other agencies charged $100-$150). On top of that, no additional charge for hauling the stuff off (again other agencies charged extra). We were planning on doing it on a Saturday but it turned out mother nature wasn't going to let us. He let me know on Tuesday if Wednesday would work, I said sure. He came at 8:00 and I told him exactly what I wanted. It's always worrisome when you leave a job and you're not there. I was not disappointed when I got back home from work. Everything that we talked about was done exemplary. I would recommend New Day Tree Service to all my neighbors, friends and family.

The team that came out did wonders with our backyard. Our project turned out way better than we imagined and we now have a place to enjoy outback with the kids nearly on a daily basis. The crew was knowledgeable, friendly and worked at a high skill level on many fronts. They built us a new cedar deck with custom poured concrete stepping stones and a gravel seating area with fire pit and L-shaped cedar benches, new sod and drought tolerant plantings. Working with Crafted Outdoor Living was a very enjoyable experience. They were recommended to us by a colleague and we recommended them to you.

We have been using Rivas Landscaping for several months now to handle yard maintenance on our 3 rental properties in Georgetown. In addition to regular mowing/edging, they have performed various other fixed price yard work such as path work, relocating plants, planter bed renovation, adding guttering, some tree trimming, and some drainage related concrete work. Sabino (owner/operator) is easy to work with, responsive and reliable, and consistently does a good job. Would definitely recommend for anything yard related.

E. J. and his crew did an outstanding job on removing our old grass and replacing new sod. His price was very reasonable and the work was done as promised and on time. He listened to our requests and responded to them. We highly recommend them and will use them again for our landscaping needs. Steve Pope

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 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.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
