Martin did a great job on or trees and we have decided to use him for our continued lawn/landscaping services. He is great at communicating the scope of the work and cost and very reasonable pricing. He even went ahead and did the job without us having to be at home even though we did not leave payment where he could pick it up before doing the work... Great customer service, I would highly recommend him for your landscaping needs... Thanks for the great service Martin :)

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!

Axel and his team responded to my request, and came over to our place to assess our roof/gutters on the very same day! They cleaned our gutters, applied moss removal, and addressed all of our roof related maintenance, without issue. They were a pleasure to work with, and we hope to work with them again in the future!

Chriss was quick to respond to our request, and got all the yard work done faster than we expected. He even fixed our gate and hauled off some junk for a small fee. Much more than a lawn mowing service, we are looking forward to having his crew keep our yard mowed for us.

Orange Trees Garden and Landscape has been doing my gardening and landscaping for a few years and it has been a huge cost savings and my yard always looks amazing.

Requested a yard clean up. Polo came by my house, did a walk through with me & sent me a reasonable & fair quote shortly there after. Polo is very responsive via text and email. I appreciate that & he lets me know when they are coming to do the work as I hate to be in their way when working on my yard. It’s winter, but I’m very pleased with the way my yard looks now. Polo gave me a quote for regular maintenance for the year as well. I’m looking forward to seeing the work progress throughout the spring, summer & fall! I’ll be updating this review in the months to come.

Sheldon did some excellent work at our house. The garden areas look great and he also removed a small tree. I was a little worried about the project finishing by the day we agreed on but Sheldon and his crew stayed and worked late in order to finish on time. He is a man of his word.

Had a very small garden (side yard maintenance) project. My space required basic trimming which was done appropriately. However, R&R seemed a little pricey for the job. $80 for less than an hour of trimming bushes didn't feel right. I felt the services was rushed because there was a bigger project to be done elsewhere. However, I appreciate that they showed up- Other gardeners didn't seem to be available.

This summer we needed to have some landscaping done and contacted Blake and his team. Their work far exceeded our expectations and we were extremely happy with their prompt, professional service. With our house having beautiful curb appeal and yard looking the best it ever had we asked if we could have routine maintenance done to keep it looking so good. Blake's team now keeps our house looking amazing all year round and is more affordable than we thought! Couldn't be happier and we send all our closest friends to use them as well!

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.
