I highly recommend EBRR and team to everyone. The team was always professional and on time. Ed Bilo takes great pride in his company and it is obvious he enjoys his work. The team was always sure to make certain the finished product was exactly what we wanted. EBRR is a one-stop shop- they are skilled in so many areas of property maintenance. We had them do flooring, outdoor landscaping, post construction cleaning and concrete repair. Ed Bilo was happy to help with whatever type of work we needed done around the house and provide ideas and expertise. We will be inviting them back to do future projects in our home without hesitation.

Anthony from Eastbay Movers and Landscaping Services did a great job for me. He showed up on time. Took care of my landscaping needs, planted new bushes, laid down mulch, trimmed a tree, and will continue to help me with lawn maintenance. He also hauled off a large pick-up load of junk that I needed to get rid of. This is a great added value to his services. He does landscaping and he is able to haul items away for you. Very helpful. Furthermore, he is knowledgeable on the landscaping side and has given me very good advice for the best approach to maintaining the yard and when to do what. He will also bring in additional help when he thinks it is necessary. He is very accessible - takes calls and will send you pictures of his work if you are off-site. Very nice person too.

The lawn care service has been fantastic and the iPhone app with rescheduling notifications is the cherry on top. I have no reservations referring friends and family members to LawnStarter for any and all landscaping needs.

Ground Force One Services was excellent. I had a furniture pick up at Home Goods and delivered to my home. I was given a great quote, much better than then other four quotes I received. Delivery servicemen were very pleasant with great customer service. 5-Stars

Employees were very responsive to messages. They suggested a time and I said that earlier would be better, and they were able to come before the specified time. They mentioned other services they offer (landscaping, weeding, etc.) and gave cost estimates. They were open to scheduling mowing twice a month, which I prefer for budgeting reasons.

Gennaro was an absolute delight to work with. He took an embarrassingly overgrown flower bed and made it beautiful. He was very courteous and polite. His work ethic and finished product was outstanding. His pricing very competitive. I plan to continue working with Gennaro on all my landscaping needs.

Absolutely amazing moving company! I was worried no one would take such a small job on short notice. However Adrian of Checkmate Professional Services came to our rescue. Adrian arrived 5 minutes early with all of his equipment. He was very professional and asked questions to make sure he was doing everything to our specifications. He helped us move and setup a 350lb outdoor fountain. My wife and I are very grateful for his company. We highly recommend them.

We had some problems with our irrigation system. Carlos came out the next day to look it over and give us a quote, and even fixed one thing while he was there. When he came to do the work three days later, he was on time, explained what he was doing, and recommended some other adjustments to improve the irrigation. He fixed the two zones that didn't work, adjusted some heads, and installed two new sprayers. Our plants are so happy now! I would call JP Landscaping again for other outdoor work we need.

Nery painted two garage doors, a column which had blistered paint due to weather, an inside bedroom ceiling with water damage, recaulked and painted a window, and caulked and painted a new door and molding. He always called to see what times would be appropriate to my schedule, called my while on the way, and showed up on time. The painting was superb. Frequently painters simply scratch/sand away old paint and repaint, leaving a small impression where flaking paint had been scrapped away. Nery scraped/sanded away any peeling paint, spackled any areas where old paint was scrapped off, and then painted. The garage doors and the column (which would have had large areas where it would have been noticeable if it weren’t spackled before painting) now look brand new, as do the indoor areas he worked on. I would recommend Nery for any indoor or outdoor painting needs.

Alonsso and his crew have been absolutely phenomenal! He has clearly communicated, helped with ideas, has worked quickly and above all is a genuine person who has not tried to up sell! We have had his company remove TONS of plants, shrubs and trees, transfer some of them to new locations, plant multiple items, do a spring cleaning and mow and maintain our lawn and landscaping!! I would highly recommend Alonsso and his company for any of your landscaping needs!

The entire experience with Solana Landscapes was perfect. Mark (the owner) communicated with me often, provided a written estimate the same day and performed the work over a period of a weekend. My yard is absolutely beautiful and I have hired Solana Landscapes to take care of my yard for the entire year including weekly mowing. The prices were very reasonable and the service level was beyond anything I have received from other landscaping services. My neighbors have already asked for Mark's contact information because they loved his work that much. You cannot go wrong hiring Solana Landscapes.

I needed my grass cut ASAP! I spoke with TaskEasy on Wednesday and although it’s usually a 3-5 day wait for service, they were able to take care of my lawn that Friday! Fast, dependable service, will definitely use them again!

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.

I use Lawnsy for the townhome I am currently renting. We are responsible for mowing the lawn, and they provide that service. It was hard to find a lawn service that would serve small lawn like ours, but they were able to help us out. I am really pleased with their service, they are punctual, and my lawn always looks great after they have been here.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
