Excellent Job! I called him last minute and he squeezed me in with his busy schedule. He came in a very timely manner. He mowed my lawn, trimmed the bushes and cut some of our tree branches and charge us with a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him.

With the impending paths of Irma predicted last week I needed a large Oak trimmed back from off the house just in case winds picked up to prevent the tree from possibly falling on the house. Brent was able to not only rearrange for an emergency cutting as the tree had several limbs over not only the driveway but over several sections of the house and a few leaning towards the neighbor's house. His crew arrived promptly around 830 and was limbing up the tree a little after 9. He brought both a chipper and a large trailer truck to make sure that all clean up is taken care off on site. Several times someone from the crew came and to make sure that I was happy with how the tree looked and to make sure that there were not any additional branches that needed to be trimmed back. Clean up was a breeze as well, they raked up small branches as they went, the saw dust was blown off my roof, sidewalks and driveway, they even swept up the road to make sure that sawdust wouldn't make it towards the storm drains. I had a neighbor swing by and ask for some of the logs and they helped him load up the smaller ones and kept a side pile for additional pick up. Overall I would recommend Brent and his crew again. In fact, when I need to have some stumps ground out soon, I'll be hiring him again.

Mr. Fly responds to messages very quickly whether it's a phone call or text or email. He removed one big maple tree from my front yard, ground its stump, filled the hole with topsoil and seeded grass fro me. He also helped me to remove surface roots, as well as some surface roots that do not belong to that tree. He also trimmed the giant oak tree in my backyard, and the magnolia in front yard. He treated fungi as I requested. He has all the professional equipment, got job done quickly. He offers a great price (ask for price match), gets the job done quickly, and is very easy to work with. I will use his service again if I need to. You can definitely have trust in him!

My front lawn was a big mound with the remains of an old pine tree in the middle. Land levelers removed the old stump and decaying root system and corrected the grade with respect to the sidewalk and driveway. Finally seeded for a new lawn. All done in a timely manner.

The company and crew completely remodeled our front yard, from removing all the existing 16-year old builder's grade overgrown landscaping to tree and stump removal. Our yard is nothing less than stunning! The crew worked nonstop and completed the job within just 2 business days. Our family (and our neighbors!) are completely astounded at the transformation. We would strongly recommend Scott and his team for the smallest or the largest job; the combination of total professionalism at all times, artistic creativity, attention to detail, dedication to quality and technical expertise makes Woodland Outdoor LLC a first rate company and a pleasure to work with. Bravo Zulu to the entire team for an outstanding job!

the job was to get rid of weed trees, vines and weeds- it was a big job--he did a great job on vines and weed trees, but left a few weeds and took out some perennials that I had pointed out as wanting to keep--he worked very hard-coming early and staying late from when he started until he finished- some days he had his family-lovely people- he was very concerned with doing a good job- I would hire him again

I had 7 trees removed from my yard (2 very large sweet gums), 5 stumps ground, and several limbs removed from a very large oak that were hanging over my house. Brian, Jason, and the entire crew of Tidewater Tree did an excellent job over 3 days. Brian kept in constant contact with me about their progress, gave me a written estimate detailing the scope of work, never asked for any money till the job was completed (he walked the yard with me after the job to make sure everything had been addressed to my satisfaction), and the cost was extremely fair. I told a couple of neighbors and co-workers the cost, and they thought it was very reasonable considering what I was having done. One neighbor even asked for contact information. They took great care in not using spikes to climb the large, beautiful oak tree to reach the limbs I wanted removed. They were also very careful in removing two trees that had grown up through my fence hedge. Thanks to their considered effort, neither my hedge nor fence was damaged by the falling trees. All the logs and stumps were removed from the property and the wood chip debris from the stump grinding was raked and cleaned away. Plus, they filled in several large indentations that were made when the sweet gums fell and impacted the yard. I can't say enough good words about Tidewater Tree's professionalism, knowledge, skill, and care. They were thorough, considerate, polite, and conscientious. I would highly recommend them for any tree work you need done. I wouldn't consider anyone else if I were you. You will not be disappointed, and you will be treated more than fairly. I would hire them again without hesitation. I couldn't be happier with the results.Thank you guys for a great job!

Roland and his team were great to work with! They placed our satisfaction as their top priority. Very professional and accommodating, these guys are top notch and very reasonably priced! Bluegrass Lawn Care came out and did the work on the same day. They cut back 6 branches of tree and made the house safer. The team arrived as scheduled, did the work exactly as specified, and left the worksite clean. I strongly recommend the Bluegrass Lawn Care, very pleased with the work!

Let's talk about Brandon. Not only did he take the time to answer every question I had, but he listened to requests I had as well. He responded to me quickly and kept me up to date on where he was on the project. At some point, I wanted to change the steps he had done for me. [Not his fault, it was originally my design and I changed it on him well after the fact.] he not only helped me figure out how to get the design I wanted to work, but was VERY fair on the price. I had an OCD moment and wanted some posts centered and when I told him, he told me he figured I may want that and had already thought about how he would change then so it would be nothing to do. Part way through the project, my husband hired some guys to drop off wood at our house. These guys DUMPED bolder size tree trunks taller then my car in my driveway and left! Wouldn't come back to cut them and we had no way to do it! Brandon came to my rescue and rented a machine to cut them up for my husband and even stacked them for us. He even cleaned up the front yard for us too. The deck for the front and back are now done and beautifully completed. It was a pure board base with a TREX railing. Thank you Brandon for all your hard work! We hope to work with you again soon!

Super impressed with communication of scheduling and with the work. Very reasonably priced - they raked our front yard, bagged leaves and even those annoying tree gum balls...14 bags worth in a little over two hours, for about $60. Definitely recommend and will be using again!

They texted me and I sent them over to my house after I texted my husband that they were coming to do an estimate as they were in the neighborhood on another job. He hired them on the spot, not understanding that by "estimate," I meant estimate. So I can't review their rates. (Sorry other Thumbtack responders whose appointments I had to cancel.) Well, they did all I wanted and cleaned up well afterwards. It was $300 for about an hour's cutting, including branches above two houses and a garage and then a haul away. My neighbor watched and thought they were terrific and more than fairly priced.

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.

How much does it cost to remove a tree stump?

Once you have a tree cut down, you’ll probably want to remove the tree stump as well. You may want the stump removed for aesthetics, the tree stump could be diseased, you might want to prevent regrowth, or you may find the roots are causing problems and need to be removed. Tree removal costs don’t always include the cost to grind out or dig out a tree stump after the tree has been felled and the trunk removed. The national average cost for stump removal ranges from $150 to $200. There are two main methods for dealing with tree stumps. In grinding, pros use a chipping machine to grind away the above-level tree stump until it sits just below the soil surface. Tree stump removal entails lifting the entire root ball of a tree out of the soil. Removing the stump will leave a hole in the ground and also take more time, labor and money than stump grinding. Here are some examples of average tree stump removal costs:

  • Stump grinding: $2-$4 per inch.
  • Tree stump removal: average of $60-$350.

The final price will depend on the stump’s size, condition, location and condition of the soil around it.

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.

How much does it cost to trim a tree?

The national price range for tree trimming is $270-$450. Tree trimming is often done by a professional arborist who is trained to safely trim and prune trees for both the health of the tree and the safety of the residents and their property. Trying to do your own tree trimming is not advisable unless you have the proper know-how. Tree trimming companies may charge an hourly rate for their services. The hourly rate may be higher or lower for different trees to reflect the relative safety measures, skill, equipment or people power needed to handle the job. For this reason, most tree services provide free estimates.

One example of an hourly rate for professional tree trimming services is $150 per hour. Costs may be under $100 or could be higher than $300 per hour, depending on variables such as proximity to buildings, health of the tree, height and diameter of the tree, and type of tree trimming desired. Geography and regional cost of living and regional costs to do business will also play a role in your tree removal costs.
