Incredible speed, service, communication, and quality! Antonio is a professional and has a great crew with him. He came to my home within hours of our initial phone call. While looking at my existing landscape, he was able to design a completely new layout. His focus was getting us to our goal within a very reasonable cost. He did all the work in one day, showed up on time, and completely cleaned up the job site. I had multiple last minute changes and he and discussed the options with me. He step by step, explained what he was doing, and showed us how to care for our plants. Excellent company and work! I highly recommend to anyone!

I was having trouble finding someone to trim our Holly trees in front of the house. Called many a landscape professional and none of them showed up. Then I remembered that Thumbtack had good recommendations and Arturo had great reviews. He responded immediately to my call and came out to the house that evening. He spent a good hour with me to find the best solution for our Holly's and we added a couple more services to this job. A few days later his crew showed up happy to do this job. I was very pleased to come across Arturo and I will be giving his card to my Realtor as none of her recommendations would show up. Thanks again Arturo.

Sammy did a great job on our lawn at a great price. Very professional over the phone and got to the job early. Very impressed. We are hiring him again to do some landscape work and we will review again after the completion of that work. Great job!

Precise Landscapes & Irrigation was very professional and offers a high quality product. We had drains and a sprinkler system installed and we are very pleased and we highly recommend this company. They are fast and effecient. We just love our wifi smart control panel that allows us to use our phone or tablet to save money and see our soil moisture level at anytime.

Highly recommend David and his team for Landscaping and Design. The service is outstanding and the personnel is very accommodating. In my opinion, they are the best landscaping company in Houston. The personal attention you get whether your job is small or large, is unsurpassed. David goes the "extra mile" to make sure the customer is happy and that the work is outstanding.

David was very nice and considerate. My yard was small, but a lot of work was required. He cleaned up the yard, raked, removed weeds and trimmed the grass. I definitely plan on using him again, we have already talked the rest I would like to do with the yard! I definitely recommend David for any sort of landscaping you require.

I've used SafeWater Services for a few jobs at some rental and investment properties. Sometimes as simple as getting feedback on what the problem might be and what it would take to remedy. I look at a number of homes that I consider purchasing and having them as one of my "consultants" has been extremely helpful. Of course, when I do go through with the purchase, I give them the work, which has always been well done. David is easy to work with and is quick, responsive, and up front about what will be required.

I have to say Wendell went above and beyond to prune our 3 trees in our front yard. I've hired people in the past and barely did any work to the trees and overcharged. Wendell's quote was fair and his work was exceptional. The guy is like spiderman and a magician at the same time climbing IN the trees with a chainsaw and making ugly & nonfunctional branches disappear! I have two huge trees in the backyard which is a large job and based off his work today would highly consider him for the job. I have to also comment about hiring the right tree contractor that has a good eye for design. He and I were on the same page on how I wanted the trees and he was willing to make modifications as we went. I would say hiring a tree trimmer is like hiring a skilled barber and architect at the same time. They have to hear your expectations and what you want and desire and design how you want. But to add on that then he followed through with exactly what I was expecting so thanks Wendell. Your hardwork and professionalism is truly appreciated.

Leo was the only landscaping contractor on this site that did not ask endless questions. He had a simple, fair quote for a simple job (mow, trim, blow, and trim the hedges). I do not normally put landscaping contractors in my cell phone, but Leo is there. I usually flag down a truck that is down the street to come mow my yard and get mediocre results. Landscaping co's are mostly a dime-a-dozen. Leo is an individual who works hard to earn a living. No one else will touch my yard. He did excellent work for a very reasonable price.

I looked at my landscaping after Winston had been working on it and the first thought that came into my head was, now that’s what I’m talking about! He put a nice clean sharp edge around everything and for the first time ever our landscaping looks manicured. I love it!

Chris and Jeff were great! They came and gave a last minute estimate on doing my lawn and landscaping and did the work, the same day, with no extra charge, a couple of days before Christmas, at that! They are professional, friendly and terrific overall!

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.
