We used Antonio's services for cutting a tree and fixing my fence. Antonio's team did a great job putting up a new backyard fence and cutting the tree. He was very professional, courteous and got the job done despite of the rainy weather. I really liked the quality of work he provided both the times.

I am so grateful to have found Hollow Tree Service. I wasn't sure what to expect since this was the first time I've requested a tree trim. What great service from Hollow Tree for my first tree trimming experience! They provided me with a reasonable quote for trimming my tree and were flexible with scheduling. They called ahead, were on time, and in and out within an hour from set up to clean up. They also offered me tips to maintaining the tree . I appreciated that he was honest and didn't say that I needed to hire them annually if it was unnecessary. I've already recommended him to my neighbors and plan on using him the next time I need my tree trimmed. Honest, hardworking guy!

'Little Shepherd's Services' Arturo Ibarra Tree Service is just a good, honest Service that does what he says and knows what he is talking about. That’s the Service you want when a service can speak what you want when you are thinking about what you want. I searched 3 Tree Services to do the job I wanted and one wanted $400.00 to embark 2 Trees. The other $375.00 and I saw the work they were doing in Katy but the bark of the Palm tree they were skinning did not have that deep rich gold brown color. Then I gave Arturo Ibarra a call and explained to him what I wanted done to my two Mexico Fan Palm Trees and he actually started explaining to me what I wanted and he was in my head and on the money. He even educated me about how to leave the top of the tree because of different seasons. He was the man AND his prices was very reasonable that they beat all the other previous estimates and delivered a job well done. Ok, say no more... LITTLE SHEPHERD’S SERVICES. Give them a call. Also, check out the before & After of my Trees! Priceless!!!

Very professional and personable. Eager to start the job and got it done quicker than expected. Extremely knowledgeable about his job and plants and takes the time to explain the job and various plants and trees around my house. His crew was nice and very respectful and they have been working together for years. They arrived and started working right away and not only did what I expected, but went above and beyond. I would have no reservations at all in recommending Arbor Care Professionals for your tree trimming needs.

Mike worked our call into his day and was prompt. He reviewed the problems and looked over system determining that it was simple issue with controller. He reset, checked system function, cycled for proper performance and located a small leak that he pointed out and issued bid to complete. All of this for minimal charge. Integrity and honesty are apparent with his service. He is now my only irrigation specialist.

We had a brick patio installed. To do this, David Torres had to remove paver brick cobblestone, and several square feet of flagstone, plus patio furniture and many large containers of plants. He also removed 2 trees. David leveled the construction site completely. He had to work in a very confined space but managed without any complaints. His workers were very friendly and helpful and everyday, left the job site as neat as possible. David and his crew did a very good job! It was a difficult area to stage and work around. Had to bring all the material down a narrow alley. We are pleased with the quality of the construction and it is very sound. Exactly what we wanted. David is easy to communicate with and very friendly and tireless and will not stop until you are satisfied with his mason work. David is a real professional and truly pleasant to work with. We named him "the gentle giant". I'd be glad to discuss further and provide pictures of his brick work. Begin forwarded message: From: "Thumbtack.com" Subject: Did Torres Construction do a good job?

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!

Great customer service! We arranged for Clyde to come even though we were at work and he took before and after pictures. He then asked if we were satisfied and based on feedback made the tree trimming job perfect! We had branches over the roof we wanted gone for safety, and now it looks great!

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!

Daniel was outstanding! his price, punctuality and knowledge is amazing. We are hiring him to prune all of our trees after he did such a great job removing the stumps that the last company never came back to grind after they cut them down. We highly recommend him for a tree care needs.

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.
