Two Dudes did an excellent job clearing out the overgrown brush in my yard, reclaiming my beds with mulch, and hauling away all of the debris and trash. They were professional, upbeat and skilled. I was so impressed with their work ethic that I hired Two Dudes to manage my lawn and garden. If you need landscaping, debris hauling, or lawn cutting services please give Two Dudes a call.

Razor Edge Lawn Care did an amazing job! I needed a quote for my front and backyard after a couple weeks of rainy weather and the grass getting a little higher than usual. The response time was very fast and efficient! Devin was very clear about the quote, the job to be done as well as the method of payment. I was not home during the service time but he stated a before and after photo would be taken, then he would contact me for a payment method. Their service met all of my expectations and I will definatly call them for future service to my lawn care! Thank you again!

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.

We are currently trying to sell our house in Newport News & live in Richmond. Ruth & her team have been so helpful keeping our house show ready with mowing it. It's been a great relief that mowing the grass is one thing less we need to keep on top of.

I needed lawn mowing, trimming, hedges shaped and dead trees removed. The team was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the plants and trees needing servicing. The free estimate was detailed and price quoted lower than expected and very resonable. Will definitely call this team again in the summer months.

Paul and his assistant, Chris, did a beautiful job installing synthetic turf in our townhouse "backyard". Before that, we had only mulch there, which was messy and our two dogs did not like it. The turf is beautiful and the dogs couldn't be happier if it was real grass. Wish we had ordered more of the turf because when we first contracted with Paul, we had planned to leave mulch beds all around the perimeter, but then changed our minds. We decided we would rather cover the whole area with the turf - our mistake, not Paul's. We would definitely hire him and his company again.

Jerry and his team did an excellent job removing the compacted gravel and dirt from my backyard. Also, he added soil and seed, trimmed a tree in the front lawn, and fixed ruts in the grass adjacent to the driveway. I’m very pleased with the work!!

We had 2 large stumps in our backyard that were a nuisance to move around and had very active root systems. We got a very fair price (and less than we were quoted by some other companies!), prompt responses, flexibility, and nothing but professionalism. Overall I was very impressed! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because we had a decent amount of debris left over. It is nothing we cant handle with a rake though and we will definitely be hiring them again for future project!

This is a great team who really will travel to you. Had some landscaping that needed to be brought back to life and boy did they do a great job. The price was more than fair for the work that was done and I have to it I couldn't believe how far they drove to take on my project. If you are looking for affordable landscaping just give Lena and Ruth a call.

    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.
