Highly recommend. Of all the contractors hired to prep our home for sale, Corey was the first to send his proof of insurance. He was prompt, reliable, flexible, and did what he said he would do plus a little bit extra. He completed tasks requiring a wide range of skills and exhibited tenacity, flexibility and quality. If you’re not sure who to choose, you won’t be disappointed choosing Corey and his team. Thank you, Corey!

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!

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.

Axel is a good young contractor that owned up to his reputation. On a personal level he was courteous and kind. Like all contractors, he gets busy and getting to the job on time is challenging, but he came through in the end. Thanks Axel!

Apples did a very credible job for us. The work involved sidewalk replacement. The price was quite reasonable. Pedro and his crew were timely, delivered as promised and quickly made arrangements for another contractor to grind tree roots, as that was necessary. Apples coordinated with the city inspectors and worked to their specifications and satisfaction.

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.

I hired R&R hardscapes to build a complex deck with a roof and finished underneath of the deck equipped with lighting and electrical outlets. When I approached Ricardo, owner of R&R and let him know what my idea was he gave me great advise on what materials to use to fit into my budget. One of my biggest challenges in living in the northwest with a deck was having to replace deck boards all the time, even when treated. Ricardo told me about brazillian hard woods and the benefits of this product. Mind you that I was trying to find the right contractor foe this deck for 2 years and out of the 10 contractors I spoke with not a single one told me about brazillian iron woods, probably because of how expensive the product was and how much time it takes to install. These hardwoods last 75+ years. Ricardo was able to come up with a plan for my dream to have this extension added to my house and fit it into my budget. Most contractors didn't want to touch the project because of how complex it was. Ricardo has a real sense for what I wanted to create for my family so that I can enjoy it in all seasons. His first thing was safety. I didn't want a bunch of cross boards hindering my view both on the top of the deck and under the deck. He poored nearly 2000 pounds of concrete under each support pole and doubled the size of the footings to make it super stable, enough to put 2 elephants on my 350 square foot deck. Let me tell you that my deck is the talk of the neighborhood. Everyone wants to come over and hang out. Another thing a really appreciate about Ricardo is he always picks up the phone to talk to you when you have questions and I had a lot of questions. He did such a great job on my deck that I contracted him to do my pavers under the deck and souronding areas and my fence. Check out the pictures.

I'm a real estate broker who was getting bids for my seller to get his yard cleaned up and his property on the market. The yard is large and completely overgrown. I got a total of 5 bids for my seller to pick from and met with all the landscapers personally. Alex had a very reasonable bid and started immediately. He powered through to get the property cleaned up and show ready. I'll definitely recommend him to my other clients.

I hired KD&D to get my overgrown yard back to looking like a normal yard. They exceeded my expectations. They put in a lot of work on my overgrown grass, trees, bushes and flowerbeds which transformed my yard to make it look nicer than when I originally bought my house.

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.
