Martin came out right away for a bid, conducted the work within days, and even came back right away when I added a tree removal to the project. I look forward to working with Martin in the future.

Carlos did a wonderful job with the 3/4 removal of a tree located in a very tight spot between 2 city homes, whose branches also had grown into the power lines. This required a power drop and additional care and knowledge. He and his crew did the job for the price quoted, which was very reasonable, and left no branch behind! I was more than pleased with the work, will use Carlos Landscaping again, and will recommend him to anyone needing ANY type of lawn, land or tree care! :-)

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 called Cloudy Sky Tree Service to have 17 trees topped. I called and was scheduled promptly for an estimate. Their knowledge of the type of trees, how best to cut them back made my decision to go with them. They came out on time, had the work done in one day, cleaned up all the branches and the area around the trees where they worked. The team of guy that work for Cloudy Sky are awesome. A fine example of a finely tuned machine. I have recommended them to 2 neighbors, and they in turn have recommended them to others. I would recommend them again in a heartbeat. I believe that I have personally sent at least 4 jobs their way because of the quality of the work, pricing and the team of guys that represent this company. If you need urgent tree service or are looking ahead... Call Cloudy Sky first.

I needed the fence installation quite urgently. Noel responded promptly and tried to accommodate my request. He came out to give estimate as promised. His price was fair.. better than competitors. What more impressive was his hard working team. They started early and finished earlier than expected with excellent and professional work. Then I hired him for another fence installation which was more challenging with lots of big trees and roots along the line. They completed their work sooner than expected again with high-quality work. Noel is humble and professional. I'm happy to have hired him and I will keep adding more works for him to do. Thanks!

Lawn mowing and tree trimming. Missed a couple of spots with the weed trimmer but, all in all, an excellent job. Will have Pedro come back on a regular basis for mowing.

They came to mow; I showed them a diseased, dead tree & they dealt with removing the bad & trimmed tree so it looks excellent! Then they mowed, doubling back over some areas. It looks wonderful now AND the price was very reasonable- $100 for 2+ hours work & hauling it all away! Very professional & pleasant. I'd highly recommend them.

We needed to remove a Blue Spruce former Christmas tree that a previous owner had planted in a bad location as well as trim back a cherry tree that had grown a ton in the last few years. Bill responded quickly and came out and gave a quick estimate that was very fair and advised me about the best approach to trim the cherry tree with an eye for the tree's health going forward. And then he had it done over the following weekend. Amazingly fast and excellent work. Will definitely hire again.

Grays landscaping did a wonderful job with our yard. I wish I had before pictures, but before our yard was mostly dirt and we had a huge bottom deck on top of a falling apart concrete patio. Grays landscaping removed all the old concrete and bottom deck and our old grass. Placed in new soil and sod and added beautiful bark around our tree and around the trim of the yard. I love how it turned out and I look forward to doing business with them again.

R&R (and the owner Ricardo) was the main contractor that implemented my landscape plan (had a landscape architect draw this up separately). He came in with a fair bid and executed the following: 1.) Build of a block retaining wall with capstones 2.) Complete replacement of soil and mulch for the yard 3.) Planting of various species of trees and plants for the yard according to the landscape plan 4.) Installation of pavers and gravel where needed My property was not in an easily location (elevated) - so the work was back-breaking to haul up and down the stairs. His people did this without complaint and R&R was done 4 days before the final date promised on the landscaping. In addition to the landscaping, Ricardo (owner of R&R) is extremely knowledgeable about construction so is able to help you plan around future projects that you may want to put in place (e.g., pergolas). I wish I had known him before I bought my current fence as well. I would recommend R&R without hesitation.

They did a phenomenal job removing lots of overgrowth from our back and front yards. They removed a huge holly tree, blackberry bushes and did a ton of weeding as well for a very reasonable price. They were responsive to messages, only note I would say make sure to have cash or check because although I asked and they said they accepted credit cards, the crew that came did not have a card reader and could not provide any sort of receipt. Overall though super pleased and will definitely use again.

We had a great experience with Bear Creek Tree Service! We needed a larger fir and a cedar removed that was starting to lean over our garage, as well as a few smaller stumps ground. The crew was efficient and thorough, and met all of our needs for this project. Will recommend to everyone in our neighborhood that needs tree services! Thank you for the great job, guys!

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.
