Rick was prompt at contacting me and that made the difference for me. Karen the landscape designer came to access and provide some suggestions. As soon as I hired him, he was on the job the next day. They were quick and efficient. Phase 1 of project is now complete and meeting with Karen to start another phase of the project. I can't wait to get through the entire project and show off my backyard.

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.

John did a wonderful job in our backyard garden. He found every plant that we wanted and was extremely specific with noting the variations of the plants that we wanted. He was responsive and quickly transformed our garden.

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.

Very responsive! Answered project request within seconds of posting! They were very fairly priced for work I wanted done. With all the rain (and me a new customer) they kindly worked me into their busy schedule the day after I posted the project request. They called to let me know they were on the way. They made sure they addressed my requests (hedge trimming and leaf blowing) and even went the extra mile to spray weeds with Round-Up. They were extremely polite gentlemen. I will definitely be hiring them to do yard work and hardscaping in the future. Great experience!

Dean and his crew did a great job. They did a complete fence replacement as well as a lawn cleanup and trimming of landscape. They did A great job and they were very prompt, neat and competitively priced. Would highly recommend him for the job. The yard work was added but will say they did a much better job than my previous landscape crew. Will most likely hire them on when I go back to regular maintenance.

I'm very happy with my fence installation! Wonderful job! I had a great experience working with Mr. Pedro! He took down my old broken fence and installed a brand new one! It looks great and is also well built and strong. He is very honest and does exactly what he says is he going to do. Great price! Great job! Great experience for me! I already plan on contacting him again when I am ready to do some yard designing!

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.

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.

Towers Contractors LLC did an excellent job in constructing a solid foundation deck for an outdoor patio kitchen I had recently purchased. There team of workers were punctual every day and wee very helpful and educational in assisting me with the design of the deck I desired. They took the time to explain the process of what was required to build a sturdy deck that extended from my pool side edge over an area of my sloped backyard. They completed the project in a short period of time. All members of their team were always courteous and professional. I highly recommend them for your future construction projects.

Raymond was great to work with from beginning to end. On the initial consultation he brought samples and ideas to the table, and thus really helped in making my decision. Once I received the quote he was able to begin work very quickly after. The job was finished in 2 days and the entire time he kept in touch and sent pictures and progress of what he worked on. Upon completion he cleaned up, took care to make sure I was happy, and was extremely pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend and only wish I had a larger yard to be able to utilize his services more! Thank you Raymond and Top Rank!!

Working with Tefacy, LLC DBA MTZ Landscaping & Irrigation was a great experience. Anna, the project manager, was extremely helpful and responsive. She made the entire process a breeze. Their technicians worked hard and completed the work quickly. They showed up when they said they would and did what they said they'd do. Having been on a 7 month waiting period of dealing with another irrigation company, it was so refreshing for her to provide me an installation day and showed up as promised. I highly recommend this company.

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.
