Wow!! Rick and his crew exceeded my expectations: professional, skilled, friendly, efficient. The quality of work done was fantastic. We have just moved into our current home which has a very dated and tired landscape. The job for Rick and his crew was to remove several shrubs, hedges and a crape myrtle, and then haul everything away. Everything was done well and quickly; then a great cleanup of the property. I highly recommend Rick’s services and will definitely contact Rick again for other landscape projects. Thanks Rick! -- Julie & Bob

I needed a wall tiled, and contacted 4 contractors. I received prices from 3 of them and S&G Home Services was the most competitively priced. Sometimes, the best price is not always the best choice, but in this case I was very lucky. Not only was I extremely happy with the quality of the work, I was also happy with the final cost. Eddie the owner, worked with me on the design and explained the entire process to me, and when I needed to make changes to the design, Eddie was patient and very helpful in explaining what needed to be done. I would recommend Eddie and his company to anyone who asked and would absolutely use his services again.

I was near certain that they were not going to be able to do my job, given that all the other bids were much higher because the tree was dangerously brittle, huge and hard to get to. He assured me that they could and I gave them a shot. Much to my surprise, just 2 men took down the tree and cleaned up the lot of it before I could believe it. I am planning on contracting them for future landscaping projects.

Absolutely positive experience. We hired Carlos and his team to clean up and restore a backyard in terrible condition so that we could sell our home. They exceeded our expectation and worked within our budget. Carlos showed on time for the quote and early on the start date with all of the supplies needed for the job. The work was completed in 6.5 hours which was an hour and a half earlier than quoted but it was done beautifully! We plan on having Carlos design and install the landscape for our new home. We highly recommend him and his team.

We hired Mi Tierra to redo our patio, help us with some drainage issues, and landscape much of our backyard. We did the project in phases and everything went well and looks great. We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do for our landscaping projects (at least we thought we did) but there are always lots of decisions to be made. David was patient and helpful as we figured things out and made our choices. I also thought David was resourceful in getting what we needed and/or using what we had to complete a project. We used a wide variety of materials (stone, rock, crushed granite, mulch, etc.) and David helped us choose by showing us pictures of his previous work and giving us his advice. We showed him some pictures of things we liked and I felt like we were on the same page as the projects progressed. We are glad we went with a stone patio instead of stamped concrete. It was a little more expensive but it really looks nice. Overall the projects all went smoothly and we are happy with the results. We would definitely use David and Mi Tierra again for future projects. Work completed: Landscaping, Large Stone Patio, Fire Pit, Drainage, Rock Work, Steps, Kids Play Area, Stone Walkway, Xeriscaping

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".

They did an amazing job. They were able to come out next day and were very courteous. I was really scared about how much it would cost because we have a large lot but it was surprisingly inexpensive. Dave is available when you have questions and is knowledgeable. Overall I really like this landscape company so far.

I've heard horror stories of hiring contractors without knowing them but I am totally pleased with Kyle and his crew. They completed a fence project faster than predicted and they do quality work for a fair price. I recommend them without hesitation.

They have a strong work ethic and they made sure our needs were meant. They are personable and trustworthy. I strongly recommend their services, they will be responsive to your 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.
