We wanted a tropical border in our backyard. Antonio and his team did a fantastic job designing and installing the project. They were professional and finished on time.

Ron communicated extremely well throughout the hiring process. He has since completed the yard work that we requested and did a phenomenal job. Ron's communication, workmanship, and overall ability to provide excellent customer service was outstanding. We will continue to utilize Raw Landscaping for our landscaping needs.

Working with Lance was a great experience and he completely transformed my backyard. I shopped around and received 4 quotes from high-end professional landscapers. He delivered more at a very reasonable price compared to other vendors. Great people, great work, at a great price. I’m already planning my next project with Lance.

Grass Monkey Lawn Care (great name) recently did a full landscape maintenance on my one acre property that is a place of business. They did general and complete landscaping . My yard is manicured and looks great! I would recommend them for residential or commercial landscape maintenance.

David with Precise Landscapes was AMAZING! He was extremely knowledgeable and helped me come up with multiple design ideas for my front yard. He stayed inline with my budget and transformed my yard so much that the HOA is looking at hiring Precise for our community landscaping needs. Do not think twice and hire David and his crew.

I hired Camron's Precision Landscaping to do my lawn when I moved into a new house. The house had sat empty for about a month before I moved in and by the time I got around to having someone come out it was considerably grown over. Since contacting them they have been nothing but responsive and professional. They very clearly love what they do and take considerable pride in their work. The price was extremely fair and I couldn't be happier with the result. They will be my lawn care provider from now on and I give them the highest possible recommendation.

Everything about David and his company was exceptional. I needed someone to give me some ideas of how to make some small changes to my landscaping on a small budget and he suggested changing out the borders of my beds with a different rock and it's beautiful. He also added much needed color with flowers and new shrubs. He and/or his crew always showed up on time and his prices were the best!

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.

Some rock delivery. It was too small of a job for a lot of landscapers to bother with, but too big to do on my own. Larry came through with quality service at an honest price. They got the job done quickly and on time. They even installed the rock and hauled away the excess at no additional charge. Five stars for sure. Would hire again, and I recommend Larry to anyone.

When i hired evergreen landscaping i didnt have high hopes cause after the recent cold fronts everything in my yard was decimated i doubted that it could be fixed, but these past few weeks the care that Mr luis and his team put into my lawn has astounded me. Not sure why Janeen S. had an issue with them especially if they were never actually paid for any services. Id suggest to remedy her issues she should attempt to arrive on time.

Jim and team did a great job designing and implementing a landscaping solution for my front yard. Unlike other landscapers they were very responsive and always followed up even during the busy spring season. They used top organic materials and were priced reasonably compared to other estimates. I would highly recommend them and will work with them going forward for all of my landscaping needs.

I hired these guys for installing our flower bed, patio and sprinkler system and these guys did an excellent job. They were very detailed, understood and patient to answer all of our questions and at the end, I was very pleased to see the job they did. Ahmad, the operations manager and the guys working for him, Jose and Scott did a great job in understanding our needs and turning our backyard so beautiful. I would definitely recommend these guys!

Joe responded immediately, was able to start the job within a couple days and has done an outstanding job. We bit the bullet and had our entire front lawn removed and resodded. He was extremely honest, conscientious, respectful, reliable and VERY hard working. By his own admission, he may not be the cheapest bid...but his work and attention to detail were well worth it, Would I recommend him? ABSOLUTELY!! ABSOLUTELY!!!

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.
