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.

Arturo and his team showed up early to set up and started promptly on time. They took down a very large palm that had died and also trimmed several trees in our backyard. Arturo and his team worked efficiently and were very courteous and thorough. They left our backyard clean and took away all debris and even went to our neighbors yard and picked up some of the palm branches that fell. We will definitely use them again in the future and highly recommend using them!

Lance responded to my request very quickly and dropped by the same day to discuss. He gave me recommendations and then completed the landscaping very quickly. He had good ideas and did a first class job from start to finish! The landscaping consisted of upgrading some old flowerbeds and designing a new one for the backyard. I recommend you give Lance a call.

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.

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.

I called a couple different companies to get a quote for adding sprinklers to my yard, as well as add some landscaping and possibly turf. SafeWater Services was by far the most knowledgeable, reasonably priced and just nice people in general. I will be calling them again when I do my outdoor kitchen and pretty much for any outdoor construction.

Larry provided landscape design and implementation services. He took out most of my existing front yard landscaping and replaced it with a new design. He listened to what I didn't like about my existing landscaping and what I was looking for in terms of aesthetics, fullness and low maintenance and came up with a great design. In working with him, it was clear he has vast knowledge of flowers and shrubs and whether they would work to be planted in my front yard and considered the amount of sun and shade my front yard provided. My interaction with him was very educational and he managed my expectations well. His team completed the job timely and cleaned up each day before they left. I would definitely use Larry again and plan to have him come back to look at my backyard in the spring!

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.

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!

At this time I am working with Suma on the landscape design. I am very pleased with Suma's design and ideas. She is very patient, making sure she understands what we want and need in the design while offering practical suggestions on what will work for our space. She's also reliable and prompt. We are looking forward to the installation of our landscape.

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.
