Two Dudes did an excellent job clearing out the overgrown brush in my yard, reclaiming my beds with mulch, and hauling away all of the debris and trash. They were professional, upbeat and skilled. I was so impressed with their work ethic that I hired Two Dudes to manage my lawn and garden. If you need landscaping, debris hauling, or lawn cutting services please give Two Dudes a call.

They are very professional. My questions were addressed in a very timely manner. They were able to complete the job without me having to be at home which worked very well with my schedule. I was very happy with the results. Ryan went above and beyond by purchasing extra necessities that I would need for the proper maintenance for my lawn afterwards. I highly recommend them.

Parks pristine is a very professional landscaping company. I was provided quick, free estimates of landscaping work for my property and was scheduled for what I wanted done right away. I initially wanted to only have lawn maintenance twice a month but with the amount of rain and subsequent lawn growth, I had to change to every week. Parks pristine was able to make that change for me without hesitation.

Weed control, leaf and debris removal, mowing and lawn care. Ongoing 2 week lawn maintenance. Devin and his brother were on time and did a fantastic job. We cannot use herbicides on the property and Devin worked us to still do the needed weed control. They clearly care fr and love what they do as the pride shows in their work. So much so, Devins brother shared that he had known that since he was 6 years old he wanted to runs landscaping business!

I hired Jerome for a landscaping project prior to putting my house on the market. I needed an overall cleanup of my property as well as mulching the beds, repositioning some plants, and planting new flowers. Jerome was extremely responsive with communication and very knowledgable about what would work best for my yard. I recommend him for landscaping services and I would definitely hire him again.

I hired Paul to clean out landscaping beds that were overrun with weeds, to extend one bed, and to prep an old landscaping bed to be returned to grass. He arrived promptly, and completed the work in record time! It would have taken my husband and I an entire weekend! I was beyond satisfied with the work and the price quoted. Will definitely call him again if I need his services in the future.

I appreciated Nick coming out to give me a quote on short notice when I was on a tight timeline. My house was going to sit vacate and I needed to ensure the lawn was taken care of. Pleasant and friendly when we met. He only had to mow my yard once before my place was rented, but I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for lawn maintenance. Quoted price was fair.

Joe is the man, need I say more! He goes above and beyond what is asked. I hired him to do a little bit of landscaping before I turn my house over to renters. He threw down fresh mulch, dug trenches for the mulch, weeded my flower gardens, trimmed my bushes and roses. His work ethic is something I haven't seen in quite a while! I was so impressed by him that I have hired him to do some additional stuff around my home, not to mention I am going to pass him along to my Realtor!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

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 look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

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 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.
