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!

Hemi, is great! He contacted me immediately after I responded to his quote. He was always punctual, honest and very helpful with offering suggestions for my backyard project. This far he has leveled my backyard, and I cannot wait to see my final patio.

The company's owners, Scott and Kelly are true professionals. They arrived at my home, on time and prepared to get any job done at a fair price. I hired them for landscaping and drainage. Scott and his crew did an excellent job, they showed up on time and work 2 1/2 full days to get the job done. Both my wife and I were completely satisfied and would recommend Woodland Outdoor to anyone who needs landscaping, drainage or any backyard work. We have since used them again, and we are again on there schedule for additional work. Scott and Kelly are the BEST.

Hired Chuck for lawn mowing and trimming of hedges for a rental property. He did a great job and maintained the lawn for me until I sold the house. Very professional and courteous and was quick to respond to my concerns. I highly recommend.

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!

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!

    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.
