They arranged service fast. I had not yet moved into my new home but need lawn service completed due to HOA rules. The quick service and excellent job they did will ensure I use them in the future.

My goal was to find a new lawn services company for my needs during the growing season. As a replacement for my previous provider, Kevin's group came promptly as per our discussions and did a great job on a lawn that had not been cut yet. Both workers worked diligently until the work was completed. They were both friendly and did an excellent job. I am highly impressed with Burroughs Lawn Services and feel lucky to have found such an excellent provider of lawn care services.

David and his son did an excellent job on cleaning my home. They arrived early to beat the rain and even cleaned my basketball hoop base and cover to my hot tub that were covered in pollen. His prices are very reasonable and you won't be disappointed.

Fields Irrigation did the initial irrigation install at my house. They have been maintaining that system, as well as providing me with annual turf care. They are very good about making sure that the system is cared for, and tested properly every year. My yard has never looked better. They have been taking care of my yard for over 4 years now.

Charles and Will were friendly, on-time, professional, and thorough from the point of first contact. Charles explained that he needed to put his hands into the existing garden (granted, it was overgrown with ivy) so he could feel around - as he worked - to know what he wanted to do. THAT was what sold me on wanting to hire Charles and Will. There was no one size fits all mentality about our garden! Will took notes on the project as Charles and I talked freely. Will reviewed the plan at the end of the walk-through to make sure I liked what he had summarized. Will also created the estimate on the same day we met and emailed it to me. Charles and Will had a hot, long day on 4/21, to complete the project. They fulfilled and then surpassed my view of how I hoped my garden would look! Bravo, Stepping Stone Landscaping!

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!

From beginning to end the entire GECS Solutions experience was outstanding. GECS provided both professional and personable service; consistently going the extra mile to ensure that the quality and quantity of their work met or exceeded both our leveling requirements and expectations. Undaunted by the weather, the GECS team worked rain or shine to complete our complex leveling project in a timely manner and within budget. We highly recommend GECS to anyone looking for an expert and quality landscaping solution.

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.

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.

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 landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
