David was very responsive to my initial inquiry as well as to our follow up conversation regarding details on the job. I was very pleased that he was able to come out to complete the work so quickly! He and his sons worked fast, but did a thorough job. My husband was even impressed, and he can be very particular about the yard. We will definitely work with David in the future.

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.

Josh came to our house on the date requested, raked and moved the leaves into the woods as directed, and was finished in the later morning. Job looked fine and saved me the hassle of clearing the yard. Also a pleasant person to work with.

Gibson Landscaping has been taking care of my yard, almost 2 acres, since it began. My yard has never looked better and I cannot wait for fall planting. The owner has some great ideas for new planting. Gibson landscape has been prompt in my cuts, which has been challenging with all the rain. My grass is lush but needs more frequent cuts. He is right on top of it. He says he does most of his residential cuts on Thursday and Friday so the yards are party ready. As a real estate agent, he has been quick to respond to my SOS's to clean up my listings. The owner and his workmen are polite, respectful and agreeable. Finally I have the perfect lawn service. I highly recommend Gibson Landscaping!

Joe arrived at the appointed time. He was really nice, sincere, ready to give me an estimate and ready to start working. I thought I would get an estimate today but would have to wait for the work to be done. Not the case! Joe and his uncle did a marvelous job with my yard. They worked quickly and efficiently, and the price was reasonable. I recommend Joe to anyone, and especially to seniors!

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!

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.
