Ed Bilo and his team did an amazing job on our house! We had all types of weeds, ivy, and just plain old nature growing on our home, and even through the walls. I had to plant trees, install sprinkler system, pave walkway. I did some research to find some landscapers. Finally found EBRR and Ed gave us the best price, got it done in a day and did a great job to make sure it does not grow back. I would highly recommend using EBRR Property Maintenance Services and I am thrilled with the work that Ed and his team did. Thank you so so much!

No Days Off has been servicing our new home's lawn for about two months. Started with a good spring cleaning, leaf removal and bed mulching, fertilization and now regular lawn mowing. Our lawn is the best on the block! We've seen our neighbors get their lawns treated and trimmed, but none to the same degree as ours. They are timely, meticulous, and thorough! They always clean up any trimmings and yard waste after, which is a big differentiator from competitors. Plus they are professional, easy to communicate with, responsive and competitively priced! Hire them. You will not regret it.

Makimanta removed a concrete patio and sidewalks and replaced a crumbling retaining wall and wooden fence in my backyard. More than any other company that gave me a quote, Makimanta really listened to what I was looking for and didn't try to suggest a quick slapdash replacement of just my fence. Their craftsmanship and attention to detail really shine through in the finished fence, and they worked hard to deliver the project on time. They did a really nice job and the entire experience working with them was awesome.

I hired P&P to give my townhome backyard a complete makeover. They were able to design a new backyard for me that stayed within my budget and solved all my problems. They completed the job very quickly and professionally. The thing I enjoyed the most was the responsiveness and communication to all my messages. I knew that I was dealing with professionals from the first interaction.

Maynor and his team came and did our estimate and then his team came two days later to complete the work. We had two trees cut down and a ton of landscaping in the front and back. They were fast, courteous, efficient, and went above and beyond what I expected. We will definitely be using them again for our landscaping/ tree service needs. I highly recommend them.

Working with Pedro was an excellent experience. He showed up promptly and on time and had very reasonable prices. I hired him to clean leaves out of my front and backyard and it was a difficult job, but he worked hard and completed it in just a couple of hours. I ended up hiring him for regular lawn service. Highly recommended!

I had problems with lawn care in the past and decided to trust in this website again for affordable lawn care. Where other lawn services brought equipment and crews to get in and out as quick as possible, David came personally and walked the yard with me to understand the scope of work and what I expected. After seeing my lawn he gave me a very competitive price that I was astonished by. I stopped by the house during my lunch and to my surprise David was still there finishing up. This is not to say his work is slow by any means, it was just a shock to me because I was used to companies trying to maximize houses per day. Also, to be honest we had let our yard get in pretty bad shape. In the end I did the math and couldn't understood how David could have made much money off my house for the time spent there. To his credit he never asked for additional money and thanked me for my time and was on his way. Later when I contacted David and offered to pay him more for his time, he did confess it was a lot of work. Not only that but we are now fortunate to have him booked for recurring service and still at a very affordable price!

I normally don't give reviews but C&E's work propelled me to write something. We hired C&E to install a brick patio and not only are we pleased with the results, we will definitely hire them again. Admittedly I was anxious at first because I believed only Landscapers could execute such a task but C&E put together a great team and executed wonderfully. The staff are friendly and professional and I look forward to hiring them again.

I hired Adkins Landscapes for landscape maintenance around my home and lawn maintenance in my backyard. The lawn was in terrible shape and they brought the grass back to a beautiful rich thick green lawn. The team did a thorough spring cleanup and feeding/mulching of all landscaped beds in the back yard and just recently did an excellent job of expanding an older landscape bed in the side yard and planted a lovely new tree in the midst of it. The company is very personable in working with you to meet your needs, very knowledgeable in making recommendations, and has a high standard of quality in their work.

Chris Harvey did an excellent job for us, and was extremely responsive. He recommended and installed a new walkway that has greatly improved our home's curb appeal, as well as the safety of our guests. We look forward to having him work on the flagstone patio in our backyard later this year! Thanks, Chris!

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.
