I highly recommend LumberJack Tree Trimming service. They showed up when they said they would, and with great skill and precision removed a huge maple tree from my yard. They worked very carefully and left landscaping, shrubs, other trees, perrenials, and the lawn undamaged. After the tree was removed they completely cleaned up the debris and hauled everything away. The job was finished in under 2 hours and the price is affordable. I'm very happy that I chose LumberJack.

My tree was much taller than I originally quoted...I don't know how to measure trees...but Roger not only called to let me know the true height of my tree but also told me he could come back the next day. Roger saved me!! I am a new homeowner and the tree was growing closer and closer to the house. I will refer Roger to my family and friends...

After a freak storm, I had a lot of trees and brush down in my side yard. It was a huge mess. Paw Paw was able to remove all of the debris very quickly. Their team was very professional and cleaned the area better than it was before the storm. They did it for a reasonable price as well. I recommend Paw Paw for any tree or landscaping work.

GREAT job!!! He took two trees down and cleaned other tree trunks, branches, and limbs out of the woods. He is excellent, does a great job, reliable, and amazing on how he can determine exactly how to "fell" a tree. I will call him again. Reasonable price also.

Mike was very professional, on time, and did angel excellent job on my shed. Her went above and beyond my expectations, so much that the very next day I hired him to cut the annoying bushes and trees that I had in my yard. Also did an outstanding job with that as well. Looking forward to have Mike work on future products for my new home.

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.
