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.

Roger Shaoul with D&R Lawn Care was referred to us via Thumbtack since we were having some difficulty finding reliable lawncare in the Richmond area. We had several projects for Roger for an overall yard clean up, hedge trimming, mulching and even moving some pea gravel from a large play area to a pathway around the house. Roger was a complete professional and did a great job! He even sent before and after photos to my phone after he was finished to make sure we were satisfied! We're now on his calendar for regular yard maintenance! Thanks Roger!!!

David & Sons did a great job edging my yard and power washing my sidewalk and deck; I'm looking forward to working with them on the flowerbeds next. They provided quick and professional services, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for future projects!

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!

Came home to a freshly-mowed lawn. The work was great; I only wish I’d found him earlier in the season. But he’s definitely my go-to now for any lawn care needs. Thanks for a job well done!

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.

Due to some setbacks because of the rain, scheduling was a little difficult at first, but Cristian was very responsive and apologetic. Thankfully, he was able to complete the project in the timeframe that I needed which was very important. He came over, measured and made suggestions and a week later called Miss Utility and was putting up my fence! I am very pleased with the work and how quickly it was done. I will definitely consider them for additional home services. Thanks Dreambuilders!!!

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.
