Carlos and team did a good job cutting our trees and charged a fair price. He answered emails promptly and stopped by to provide a quote. They showed up mid-morning instead of after 4:30 as agreed, luckily my husband was home unexpectedly. Would hire again for future landscaping needs.

Asks questions to ensure mutually understanding of work scope, a very willing worker, works and a good rate and won't try to drag out her time. She's willing to do extra chores such as organizing and even does landscaping if asked.

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!

No more than an hour after submitting my work request Pedro reached out to me and immediately made himself available and flexible for what I was looking for. Not only this, he completed half the job the same day of my work request and finished it first thing in the morning. Couldn't recommend or think of someone more punctual and on top of their work. A true professional and easy to work and communicate with. Highly Recommend to anyone in the Puget Sound area looking for landscaping services.

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 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.

Marcus and his crew did a phenomenal job wheelbarrowing 9 yards of peagravel from my driveway to the back of my garden which was about 200 feet away spread it out evenly Consistent thickness throughout the gravel and cleaned up the project. They even went a little bit above and beyond by helping out with landscape fabric and some edging. I would definitely use him 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.

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.
