We own a real estate company and are so satisfied that we left Eds guys a tremendous tip because of their effort in making sure that the property was in the best presentable position for us to list it on the market. There were several phases to this project which concluded the the trash removal and cleansing/\cleaning of the building. First we had EBRR handle some mold that needed to be removed and treatment of the air for the previous tenant. Then it was the outside area that needed to be cleaned of all the debris. We couldn't believe the short time span which all this work was completed and the price was not able to beaten by any other contractors in the area. Mr.Ed goes and does anything to make sure the client is satisfied being us! Always answers the phone and couldn't ask for more pleasurable experience.

I was delighted by my experience working with Ordonez. He installed a marble backsplash in my kitchen. His price was competitive but it was his conscientiousness, thoroughness, and commitment to excellence that impressed me the most. I’ve worked with many home contractors, and this is one of the best. Fully recommend!

Steve did a great job taking down our tree and hedges in our front yard. He also grinded the stumps and removed embedded roots. He beat out all the other contractors by a couple hundred dollars…and gave us a Military discount. He couldn’t come out to give the quote right away, but we are so glad we waited patiently for him to do so. He came out with his wife and they analyzed the situation and gave a fantastic quote. He said he could do the work the very next day…and he did. He showed up on time and was very professional and friendly. He did a lot of work and saved us money by beating out all the other contractors’ bids. I recommend hiring Steve to do your tree removal and stump grinding needs. He knows what he’s doing and we are so glad we chose him. We will definitely hire him to help us with a backyard erosion problem in a corner of our backyard. We will wait to hear from him before posting the job up to other contractors first, because we like his professionalism, knowledge and work ethic. Thanks Steve!

After waiting since November to have a contractor come out to clean my gutter. I gave up and tried to locate another contractor. After several replies on Thumbtack, I decided on Reinaldo Torres of Del Ray Landscaping. First thing, he was in the Alexandria area. Many contractors are too far and feel it is not worth their while to travel for a small job. Second thing, its a landscaping business that does gutter cleaning. Great!! My neighbor has tree with limbs overhanging on my roof that traditional gutter cleaners will not touch. Third thing, his quote was inline with the others as far as the gutter cleaning. I did not mention the tree at the time, but the quote for cleaning my gutter was very reasonable. I contacted Reinaldo on Saturday, New Years Eve. He came out the same day in which I explained I wanted my roof swept and gutter cleaned. At that time, I asked if he would be willing to prune the branches overhanging my roof. He stated that would not be a problem for an additional/reasonable fee. We scheduled an appointment for two days later, Monday. It was raining on Monday. Reinaldo, called that morning and explained it was not a good day due to the weather. I understood and we scheduled for the next Saturday. I then looked at the weather for that weekend, and there was a possibility of snow and cold later that week. I called Reinaldo back and asked if he could come out Wednesday, January 4th, after 3:00 PM when I was off work. No problem. Reinaldo and a friend came out Wednesday around 3:30PM. They apologized for being late for they had mechanical issues on the work truck. Most contractors would have canceled. Not Reinaldo, he put a ladder on his family mini-van and came out. Taking about dedication and only 30 min late!!! Reinaldo and his friend, Nelson, did a great job with the tree pruning, roof sweeping, and cleaning out my gutter. They cleaned up after and everything looked great. I am very happy with the service and definitely will be using Del Ray Landscaping again!!! John McCauley Alexandria, VA

I had a leak that needed to be fixed, a bay window that needed to be repainted and calked and drywall that needed to be redone. Initially i shopped estimates from different contractors - every one of them telling me the leak was from a different place. I ended up going with L&N because Sam seemed like a straightforward, honest guy and was also more affordable than all the other estimates i received. He identified the leak immediately, checked multiple times to make sure it was fixed, repaired my drywall and re painted my bay window. He wore booties the whole time while inside which my wife appreciated, he cleaned up all dust and debris and provided receipts for all materials. The workmanship was great and my bay window and drywall look like new. He also warranties his work. Highly recommend him for any general contractor needs you may have.

Thumbtack and other similar sites have always been my primary source when selecting home service firms, as I appreciate the feedback/reviews and have rarely been disappointed - my recent experience with Victor H. Landscaping Services was no exception. The owner, Hugo, responded promptly to my call and came out to give me an estimate within two days. We recognized the importance of hiring a contractor who is (MHIC) licensed, insured and bonded, providing assurance workers are fairly compensated and a lien isn’t placed against our home in the unlikely case of injury. Our recent experience with Victor H. Landscaping was our introduction to the company and we were pleased to enjoy the level of quality service and reasonable price which characterized its positive reviews from other customers. It is without hesitation we recommend the service firm to others and happily add our own positive feedback (on both price and quality) to the already published outstanding reviews!

P&P is a fantastic company to work with. They did a fantastic job adding shrubs to our front yard and re-leveling our back patio that was poorly installed originally and settled drastically. Highly recommend them for any landscape or hardscape work.

Can't say enough about Norlan! My deck was in dire need of repair. When I purchased my home 4 years ago, the deck needed to be repaired, but I didn't have the money to do it at the time. When I was able to take care of it, Norlan responded and did everything we wanted and more. His team was professional, friendly, made sure I was happy with the work, and gave me an amazing price! After he finished the deck, we asked him to do more work. You won't regret using Norlan Construction. Great job!

Jose did a great job and charged a reasonable price. He even came back to take care of a hard to get area he wasn't able to at first. I will definitely be going with Jose and Delfin Landscaping Services for any yard related work I need in the future.

We received outstanding work from Chris Harvey who performed as a General Contractor to reconfigure the backyard of my townhouse. This effort required building a three foot high cinder block wall at the end of my property, then leveling the yard which had a severe slope by back filling from the existing cement patio to the wall. He built a slate sidewalk from the patio to the wall, covered the patio in slate and built slate steps through the wall out to the walking path behind the wall. Chris had a cedar fence with gate built around the yard and then landscaped the yard with top soil, sod, rock, and plantings. It was done exactly as I asked and in a very timely manner with only interruptions for weather and two visits by Miss Utility. Chris is very sociable and easy to work with. He was present for each sub contractor as they started and completed their work. I highly recommend Chris Harvey Landscaping.

These young men were polite, efficient and hard working. They are not trained landscapers, and may need a degree of guidance from the home owner -- we had a minor misunderstanding about what to weed and what not to -- but they behave in a professional adult manner and do very good work. I would absolutely hire them again, or recommend them to friends and neighbors.

I enjoyed working with Santos on our garden project. He was very communicative during the entire process. His team is very well trained in their trade, respectable, and knowledgeable. My garden turned out marvelous, and my expectations were exceeded. I would without a doubt recommend him for any landscape project.

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.
