I wanted my back yard grass removed and replaced with new sod and flower beds rejuvenated and mulched. Corey was personable and professional when he came to do an estimate. He asked questions to completely understand what I wanted and promptly forwarded a real, business estimate (not one scribbled on a piece of paper). He kept me informed of his schedule for the installation day (weather and sod availability concerns) and arrived right on time. I am extremely happy with the results of both sod replacement and flower bed work. Corey and David worked diligently, and everything was done with care and an obvious desire to exceed my expectations. My neighbors commented how impressed they were with not only the results but the attention to detail. I highly recommend JCD Improving for any lawn or landscaping project. They will be my first and only call for any other work!

Josh helped me mow my lawn while I am recovering from a surgery. Josh mowed my lawn the way I mow it. He took care of the details and all the clipping were put in my compost pile. Josh is trustworthy and reliable.

Joshua and his crew did an amazing job for us!!! I interviewed 5 different landscapers before deciding upon Kober's and I'm so glad we did! He transformed our Manakin Sabot home by adding a beautiful stacked stone retaining wall, removing the existing material, replanting an island of ornamental plants that were dead, adding a new driveway border on a very lengthy driveway, and MORE! In fact, he put stacked stone on the back side, visible from the inside windows of our home, simply because he knew it would look better as we looked out. I'll update my post by adding photos once the extra plants I ordered from him come in this week. He was so punctual and even worked on the 4th of July to finish our job before the weekend, although we certainly didn't expect that. The job took a few days and every single day, they would clean up the driveway and yard so that everything looked neat and clean after they left, just to bring it all back out the next day. That's having pride in your services, as well as your client's property. We had scorching hot temps while the job was going on but that didn't phase them --I am just so impressed. If you are looking for a landscaper who will provide excellent service at a very fair price, please do yourself a favor and hire Kober's Landscaping. Sure glad we did!

I used J &M this summer for landscaping in my yard and I couldn't be happier with the work they did! They had great suggestions and came up with a beautiful design. I gave them a short timeline and they delivered everything on my wish list for a great price. I'm looking forward to working with them again on future landscaping projects. Wholeheartedly recommend them for all of your landscape needs!

Michael was very professional, did an awesome job, and offered a very fair price. He's a stand-up guy and I would recommend him to anyone needing landscaping support in Richmond. I live in the Museum District, and my backyard was a mess of concrete, bamboo, concrete fountain, weeds, bushes, etc. Mike's crew came in and, in only 2 days, cleared out everything with his tractor, graded the yard, and installed gravel for off-street parking. The backyard looks spectacular now, I don't even recognize it anymore. Great guy, you're in good hands with Mike.

We have been in business since 1985. We believe your property should be treated with the utmost respect and care to provide security, peace of mind, and of course, beauty. We have master gardeners from four counties and two of the three regions of the nation. Our company is fully insured, licensed and certified and believe no person should enter your property without those credentials. Among our certifications are the chemical, both industrial and organic, which many do not carry, and the nurserymen, which almost no one has. We handle the following: * Plants Plants are our specialty. From 5-inch caliber trees to ground covers, we supply them all. We are experienced in plant material. We do not hire inexperienced people from nurseries and colleges to "help us out" with plant selection and replacement. * Plant Designs We will come to your property, walk around with you, and answer any questions you may have. Everything will be put on paper at that time, within minutes. We can leave rough designs on-site or send more detailed ones within a few days. * Plant Analysis We cannot count how many times we have been out to a property and a client has asked to identify a plant or address a problem that no one else has been able to do. Plant identification, conditions, and diseases are no problem for us. * Plant Installation Our license plates have the planters seal on it, so if you see this on a vehicle, you can trust in that. We keep pallets of the best soil conditioner at the largest retail and wholesale nurseries in the area. This mixture should be used with every job but, unfortunately, many times left out by others because of expense, inexperience or laziness. We offer it free! We provide the following additional services: * Plant Shopping There are different ways to choose the correct plant material. We shop for you! We handpick plants to assure they are the newest and most attractive available. We do not have the nursery staff or others do the choosing. That is one reason why you should not use a landscaper who has a nursery or a nursery who landscapes. We will also purchase straight from the grower and if needed, order plants and plant material. * Transplanting We love to transplant because we hate to waste plants. Whenever you transplant, you should always use root stimulator. This is a must but seldom used. We recently moved 12 large crape myrtles which were planted by another landscaper too close to a driveway and house foundation. *Real Estate We have a great relationship with realtors, individual home and business owners, and renters. The first thing that is seen by a potential buyer of a residential or commercial listing is the landscape. From removing a leaning tree or dying shrubs to cleaning and mulching, real estate agents, independent sellers, landlords and business owners can call on us. * Trimming An experienced landscaper should know that there are certain times of the year to cut and trim certain types of plants and trees. We make sure of this. * Cleaning/Clearing We like to clean out overgrown and troubled areas. The result always ends in a new look for your landscape. * Lawn Repair We do not aerate. We believe that is a waste of time when compared to dethatching. When you dethatch, you work more of a damaged area for increased coverage. We use compost or soil conditioner instead of topsoil to add to the existing areas. We use the highest grade seed which is always the newest in hybrids for long-lasting grass. Many use the regular mixtures which were good 20 years ago. * Lawn Sculpting We specialize in cutting out different shapes for plant beds. Every property requires something unique. We go down property lines to separate lots, around electrical boxes, down foundations and driveways, and around patios, decks and tree lines. * Drainage Many times a yard or property needs to have water flushed out of areas where it gathers and sets. We connect gutters, add French drains, dry rock beds, and heavily mulched areas to solve this problem. * Mulching We provide all types, colors and textures of mulch. We always have our mulch delivered because of the increasing usage by some landscapers of raw mulch. This mulch is taken from landfills, and excavating sites may contain foreign materials or bug larvae which is detrimental to a home or business. This mulch is usually not filtered or treated. * Maintenance We offer seasonal or annual plans for cleaning, cutting, trimming, mulching and plant management. * Insurance Claims We are quick on to any claim an insurer or claimant may have. Any damage to a property caused by storm, auto, or whatever is covered and can be appraised within hours. * Volunteer Work We volunteer ourselves for projects for schools, churches and gardens in and around Richmond. We donate plants and services for special causes because we like to give back to the community. We recently worked with Lowes to landscape a new gym for an area elementary school. * New Construction We landscape new homes and businesses. We try to consult with the owners to assure they get plant materials and hardscapes that appeal to them, not just the landscaper or builder. * Japanese Gardens Our company started in the business by doing these as the owner trained for a full year in the country’s largest garden. City To Suburbs Landscaping installs water features, bonsai areas, dry creek beds, pagodas, bamboo, fencing and more. * Tree Work Areas which have dead wood, overgrown limbs, or are heavily populated are always a problem. Clearing leaning, split, dying or poorly shaped trees always opens up an area for a clean, more park-like setting. We carry extra insurance for this type of work as it is risky and dangerous.

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.
