So far in the project Rick's team has been like a Tornado... in one day they have completely removed two trees down to a short stump, 5 tall ,overgrown bushes from the front of the house, and 4 small trees from the backyard. I can now actually see my house!! I am looking forward to seeing the end result when the job is complete.

Eddie was responsive and followed through on his promises. Initially hired him to tame an out-of-control lawn at a vacant house then hired him again to haul and dispose of refuse at the house.

My yard was a hot mess. Even though it was small, my backyard was unwelcoming and you could not walk back there because all the leaves fell at once. I was quoted $40 for the whole job, but the final price was worth it because they took the waste with them. After a 6 day, stressful work week, it was nice to come home to the yard finally clean. It felt like I could finally breathe. I actually sat out back for a little bit today. Thanks!

I telephoned McClure lawn and landscaping and made an appointment within the hour to obtain a bid for lawn maintenance. He showed up and did a great job. I hired him immediately for lawn maintenance after observing the quality of work he does. I highly recommend them for your next job.

I would recommend Apeks to anyone needing tree and lawn care services. Ruben and his crew are in the process of doing a fantastic job with my front yard. All the work is done very professionally. After they finish trimming and sawing...nothing is left behind but a neat yard!

We hired Sharon with LadyBug Landscaping and what a great job her company did sprucing up our front and backyard garden areas. She and her crew were professional, responsive, and very punctual. On top of those great qualities Sharon gave us a fair quote that fit into our budget. Ladybug's overall work quality sets the benchmark for other competition in our local area. Thanks Sharon for your great work ethic! We will definitely use you for our other gardening needs in the future. You are TOPS in this business. Lee and Shelley

Michele and Dennis were such a dream to work with. From beginning to end they were absolutely perfect. They were able to take my little ideas and turn them into something incredible. They worked so hard to make my dream project a reality. My new flower beds are so beautiful and colorful. Just what I was looking for. They created beautiful pathways leading from one area to the next. I have yet own secret garden. Michele even went above and beyond and created a separate space just for my pups. Thank you so much Tx Design Landscapers for my new yard. Y'all are simply the best!! I hope to work with you again soon and will definitely be sending my friends your way.

We hired Carlos and his crew to work on our backyard and front after putting in a pool. He showed up provided a quote better than everyone and got started on the work right away after we hired him. He was most reasonable and work hard and fast for 3 days till the project was completed. The owner shows up and works along side his crew. Great service, competitive pricing and quality work. I would highly reccomend this company for anyone looking to get any landscaping needs. Thanks Carlos!

Lisa was on time and verry professional. She did a great job with my flower beds. I had know idea what I wanted, and when she finished, I realized that what she had done was exactly what I wanted. She has been mowing my lawn for the past few weeks, and couldn't be happier.

David put in a retaining wall for our house. This was challenging in that our house is the first house one sees upon entering the fifty-year-old San Marcos neighborhood. We are the new homeowners and I did not want to disrupt the look of the neighborhood with a garrish wall. David and his crew built a beautiful natural-blending wall that now enhances our house and entry into Spring Lake neighborhood. His crew showed up every day on time and were professional. David turned the job around on time. We have received many compliments from neighbors. We are hiring David Brown again at beginning of 2016 for backyard enhancements.

The team did an amazing job trimming our trees away from the roof line. The estimate was reasonable and the team was able to start immediately to get the job done quickly. I would definitely recommend the team for any of your landscaping needs based on the great work they did for us.

Fantastic - best contractor we have ever hired. Mike (Owner) provided a detailed line item quote and was the lowest quote among six other contractors. He communicated with us from start to finish. Work exceeded all expectations. Asked for new quote on another project. His crew finished the job in four days as promised and were very professional, friendly and went beyond the scope of the project. My wife and I are amazed how well the pool demo went, the sodding of the backyard and front and the clean up upon completion. There needs to be more contractors like Agnew Contruction Co. They can gladly use us as a reference for potential customers. Many "Thumbs Up".

Dave completely revised landscaping around the house and did a great job. You know you hired a true professional the minute the crew arrives when you see that all his equipment is absolutely top of the line. His crew chief, Josh, is the best worker I have seen and always happy to meet your expectations. A very pleasant outcome.

I would high recommend Cliff to anyone looking for a reliable person to maintain their lawn. His work is excellent, and will let you know when he is coming to service your lawn, which helps with any possible plans. He is also very responsive should anything need to be done at the last minute.

We absolutely love our new deck! It looks so much better than I was imagining. Chris was great to work with, and was always open and honest. I asked a good amount of questions and asked for suggestions since I wasn't too familiar with what would look best for our backyard and I never once felt I was being taken advantage of, or upsold. We priced out all the materials ourselves and the total price for our deck was completely fair, especially compared to other quotes we received for the same project. I will definitely recommend French's to anyone wanting a good quality deck! Thanks, Alyssa & Garrett Clifton

I worked with Raymond on a full backyard irrigation job, plus some fixes to our side yard. Raymond arrived on-time, offered fair prices, and finished ahead of schedule. We will be working with him again. Thanks so much!

I was very happy to hear that someone had the patience and professionalism to work on my Mother's house. Her Son, my step brother has Autism with Cerebral palsy. He's a smart person but has issues I can't fully understand the full medical condition but I showed up on the last day of Mr. Estrada's work. I saw a cleaned up back yard with my brother helping out so calmly with a stranger who was organizing the backyard. Over the years it took us days if not weeks to sort out what was worth keeping and what was trash with him. He had his moments but Mr. Estrada was so connected with him that his outbursts lasted only seconds rather hours with us. I highly recommend anyone who has a child with disabilities or disabilities themselves to hire Rose Services, they treated us with respect and gave us a fair price that no one was able to match.

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.
