Dwayne was courteous, on time and did a fantastic job pressure washing our house. He called to confirm and was on time. We were stood up on a competing power wash company who never called to let us know they were not coming. Dwayne is a responsible breath of fresh air. We have recommended him to our friends and will have in back for yard services. So glad to have had him to our work!!!!!

He had a congenial attitude and handled himself and his business as a professional - we would recommend him highly to anyone who needs help with outdoor jobs (eg shrub trimming and other yard work, gutter cleaning, power washing etc.)n

Came the same day to move sod and dirt from front yard to back yard. Did more than expect by leveling both areas with dirt. Thank you so much!

Daniel really came through for me. Due to an injury I was unable to do my weekly yard work. I went to thumbtack and selected Daniel to provide his assistance. He provided a very good job at an affordable rate. He has continued to provide excellent yard care for the past couple of months. He really came through for me.

This was the only landscaping company in the Hampton Roads area that was able to start work within a couple of days of initial contact. All the other landscapers were 3-6 weeks out for jobs. His crew are hard working people that will get the job done even in adverse conditions. They laid Bermuda sod for me during 2 of the hottest days of the summer thus far. The yard looks great! The cost is very competitive with others around. I would highly recommend Jerry's to anyone looking for landscaping or other lawn/yard maintenance.

I hired Rashad to do a spring cleanup of our yard to get rid of the sticks, branches, and leaves. He was very fast to respond and came out same day to give an estimate. Rashad was quick, professional, and did an excellent job leaving our yard in much better condition for a very fair price. I'd definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone!

I place turf in my backyard and it came out awesome. Jerry and his workers worked with us to make sure we were satisfied with the whole yard. They used quality product and kept a timeline for the job to be completed. I also have a dog and ALD made sure the turf was up to the standard and treated for him. They did a great job overall.

Justin helped up us in a time crunch to get our yard in better shape to accommodate new renters. He was professional, kept us updated on progress, and agreed to sending photos of the finished product. We also appreciate the convenience of an online payment option. He even recommended a company to assist in long term grass and fertilizer care.

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.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
