Thumbtack found several companies to mow my lawn. Santamaria Irrigation Landscapes responded the quickest and they quoted a very reasonable price. I hired them and they did a wonderful job. Thanks Thumbtack for putting me with Santamaria.

Eberardo and his wife are rare in todays world of private landscapers. I am a very particular guy and hard to please. Eberardo is one of the few of many hired contractors that exceeded my expectations, to near perfection. He actually was ALWAYS prompt and did exactly what I asked, and even went above and beyond per my requests. He is by far the best landscape contractor I or my neighbors have ever privately hired...Just a simple HARD working family that truly does honest and EXCELLENT WORK!! I HIGHLY recommend this husband and wife pair. Steve

William was great to work with and he has a very hardworking crew. We worked together on a plan to add hardscape to my backyard and he delivered a great final product. This project utilized a lot of different types of materials and also required major tree trimming. Project was completed in less than three days to plan and even clean up was exceptional. I already have a few other projects in mind for William!

He was very conscientious of our yard,pool, deck, and of making sure everything was cleaned up. He walked around the pool area so as not to get pool dirty and he was kind enough to fill in a hole i dug just to make sure when he left the job was done right.

They are very accommodating. I was not able to meet them face to face to discuss my lawn needs. I sent pictures of the lawn and they provided very reasonable quote. The following day they were greeted by my son and began work. They even gave with my son the recommendations on next steps for my lawn. When I arrived home from work, my lawn was wonderful. It is obvious, from the edging of my lawn and other small touches around my property, that they aim to demonstrate a level of excellence. They strive to make me and other clients so pleased to have discovered Absolute Green Lawn Care.

Convert a bare back yard into a water feature ladened environment with waterfall, plants and trees, extend patio and create walkway to front of house. Gabriel did all we asked for in a reasonable amount of time and at a very reasonable price. We are purchasing a new house and Gabriel will be on the case again creating the perfect backyard oasis for us.

Mark was very helpful with a couple of small fixes I needed to my backyard irrigation system. He was very quick to respond, showed up on time and did what I needed for a fair price. I'd recommend him and use him again if needed.

Just bought my home and had my backyard overhauled. Jeff and I met a few times to discuss the project and plans. I'm old school, so appreciated the process. Loved his design ideas, plant and flower recommendations. The crew showed up early and completed the project on schedule. I'm very happy with the end results. Highly recommend Alterra.

We wish there was a way to give this company more than 5 stars. Nayel did an outstanding job transforming our yard from the home with the worst landscaping to the home with the best landscaping in our community. The best part was that this all happened within a few days. Nayel has excellent follow up and he's an extreme perfectionist..and that really was a plus for us from beginning to the end of this project. I would highly recommend him to my neighbors, friends and relatives.

Martinez Masonry & Landscaping did a wonderful job building a stone mailbox, flower bed stone borders and repairing brickwork on the house and patio wall. Silvino is a hard worker who takes pride in his craft. We have received so many compliments on the work Silvino did and so many inquiries as to who did our mailbox and stonework. I cannot recommend Martinez highly enough. And I encourage anyone who needs masonry work to contact Martinez Masonry & Landscaping. You will not be disappointed.

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.
