Gary was able to accommodate our family situation with a new dog by slotting us in over a month early on his schedule. I really appreciate his communication, punctuality and quality of work. His customer satisfaction/service was also top notch during the entire process. I would definitely hire Gary for any other landscaping or construction needs!

Chris and his crew just completed a job for me: they tore out the weedy, neglected parking strip in front of my house (badly neglected by my HOA) and replaced it with fresh, lovely sod and a planting area for a new sapling, which was planted, watered and well-staked by Chris. The area has been transformed and I am delighted with the work done. Chris is a very responsive person (unusual for his industry) and he and his crew are hard-working and pleasant. I will certainly hire Chris again for future landscaping work.

We just did a complete remodel of our backyard. It was literally torn down to nothing and rebuilt. The job involved removing existing patio, cutting down a tree, clearing all the plants, removing steps, leveling the whole yard, building retaining walls, fence, gates, laying a fairly large patio area with pavers, building a fire pit area with flagstone, drainage, sprinklers and planting. I hired G&E based on the reviews on thumbtack and I couldn't agree more with some of the reviews about their professionalism. They are easily among the best contractors I have worked with. Reliability, Punctuality, Accountability, Flexibility, and Quality are some of the key qualities I was looking for and they fit it perfectly. We are very happy with how our yard turned out and it is better than what we have envisioned. I would definitely hire Polo and team again for any future work. If you are looking to get any landscaping work, don't think twice about G & E.

Don and his crew redid our whole front and backyard, and in less time than they even estimated. Cleared old weedy, dead grass and laid new sod; weeded overrun planting areas; removed overgrown shrubbery and replaced with neat and tidy new ones; weeded graveled areas and laid down new gravel. Pricing was completely fair and the results are well worth the investment. One of the best elements of working with Don is that he answers questions, responds promptly, and is just an overall good guy to work with (his crew is polite and courteous too) - not high-pressure, wants to be sure you're comfortable with the plan and pricing. I've already passed along his info to my parents for work they were thinking of having done and will continue to work with Don for future needs. Neighbors have not only noticed their great work, but complimented it too.

I hired Creative Effects to clear my backyard and lay new aggregate to extend my patio. Wilson gave me a very good estimate and came out very quickly. The guys did a wonderful job clearing...and did it SO FAST! The patio was not done correctly, unfortunately, and had to be torn out. Even though it was not done right, I appreciate that Wilson attempted to fix it, but more importantly...when he realized it couldn't be fixed and had to be torn out, he was gracious to admit it. He then ripped out all of the concrete and hauled it off and refunded all of my money. This shows incredible honesty and integrity and I definitely would recommend his services to others.

I had a pretty small job for Noah to do since I think he does mainly large jobs, but he came over, gave me an estimate, and did the work. I had extra gravel put on my two side yards and moving several plants around my front landscaping, including a Japanese maple that was root bound in a pot. He and his partner worked pretty much the whole afternoon and accomplished what I needed. I would recommend them for your small or large jobs.

I had an excellent experience working with Gil and his team. He was professional, made great recommendations, connected us with an experienced designer, walked us through every step of our landscaping project and provided fair and detailed pricing. He brought a wealth of knowledge about plants and materials and his team was always on time and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend PLG Construction and plan to hire them again in the future.

My yard was overgrown with blackberry bushes (bought a fixer-house), had large dirt piles, Mole hills, holes and overall was in very bad shape. I contacted Trackwest after a friend's recommendation and Corey came out to provide an estimate. He explained that the yard needed to be completely leveled, needed new top soil, and grass to be re-planted. This was after I told him what I wanted the finished product to look like. We agreed on a price and trackwest started the next week. I am very happy with the end result (see photos) and Corey and Scott are great to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

We have worked with Matt for the last two summers, and will tackle the third and final phase of our project this summer, 2016. Matt and his crew installed a stone path with steps down to our back gate, and a stone staircase up a steep slope from our back yard to our front, on the side of our house. The design included planting beds and lighting. MLG selected plantings for the pathway, and made recommendations for future plantings. Matt also built three garden boxes for our yard, out of sturdy and beautiful juniper. We so appreciated Matt working within our budget, and helping us break up our project into workable phases. We are excited to watch as the plantings fill in. This summer will see the design and installation of a new back gate, and more landscaping. It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and his crew. They were timely, worked hard, and cleaned up as they went. Matt was easy to get hold of, and always responsive. A great experience!

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.

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.

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 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.
