We hired Robert and his team to aerate our lawn and they exceeded our expectations. Robert was very responsive and offered a very reasonably priced bid. He and his team showed up on time and got right to work. Less than an hour later they were finished with our (fairly large and unconventional) lawn. Not only did they clean up any messes they had made, but they even cleaned up messes that they did not make (like leaves and things, that I did not ask or expect them to do)! Thank you Robinson & Son's Landscaping! We highly recommend them to anyone: you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I hired Ernesto and his team to build a rock retaining wall in our extremely sloped backyard and we could not be happier with the results. Not only did Ernesto help with the design, like explaining what rocks would look best and where the stairs should go. He also was extremely mindful of the technical aspects of the project, ensuring proper drainage, setting a study base, etc. As a result, we now have a very sturdy and beautiful rock wall. Ernesto and his team are very hardworking, respectful, and honest. We would highly recommend Duran Landscaping for any backyard or landscaping project!

My yard needed a fresh start for the year. Francisco did an amazing job. Cleaned up all flower beds and pulled up weeds, small dead trees and bushes, new bark down in all The beds and mowed the lawn. Timely and professional. We are having FG landscape back for regular maintenance for sure. Thanks so much we are thrilled!

I was highly satisfied with a landscape project- large trees removed, stumps removed and a large area cleared and leveled. Criss and his crew were professional and worked hard to meet and exceed expectations. Bids were timely, all jobs were completed on schedule with exemplary outcomes. I liked that Criss offered options I had not thought of that greatly enhanced the project. I highly recommend The Yard Guy. And they stand behind their work.

I was very fortunate to work with G&E Landscape Contractor. I was impressed with Polo's excellent customer service. He was quick to respond any questions or doubts I had & would give suggestions of things that would work better. Along with his suggestions he would give reasons why it would be a better idea. He never tried to upsale. On contrary, he would help find better deals. Polo & his team did a wonderful job in an efficient timely manner. They surpassed my expectaions. I can't recommend G&E enough.

We hired these guys for just installing the sprinkler system, but the professional way in which Saul gave us the quote for our complete backyard redo, we totally loved it! He was very professional, very methodical, and very rightly priced. His guys removed our old rusting deck, Saul paved our entire backyard and did the grass cover on it, in addition to installing the sprinkler system! We love these guys so much, we are rehiring them for another project!

I would definitely recommend Brian and his team at Craftsman Construction. I now come home everyday to my dream Kitchen! I have worked with other contractors in the past and I have to admit- we were a little scared to undergo such a big project, but from our first meeting to the very end Brian made us feel very much at ease. The quality workmanship, professionalism, and time on the project was awesome. Brian was able to see our vision and make it into a reality. His experience was also a big help in directing us on ideas that would add to our homes resale value but also stay within our budget. Aside from their customer service, the quality and finish work once the project was complete blew me away. We couldn't be happier! Thank you Brian!!

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.
