I am so happy with the landscape design and installion by Kyle and his team. The project could not have been smoother. Kyle presented a bid and design plan which was agreed on and that is exactly what was delivered on the day scheduled. I asked for a couple of changes to the plant material which was taken care of and did not affect the installation date at all. I was impressed with how quickly the project was completed, because I had anticipated weather issues. Would definitely recommend Kyle to my friends and plan to call on them again in the Fall.

Hugo and his team worked beyond expectations. The final product of my backyard was phenomenal. They worked very hard and very timely and cleaned everything up at the end of the job. The transformation of my yard was incredible. Without a doubt worth every dollar I spent. I highly recommend this team!

I had Balickis plant several arborvitae trees in my backyard. The install was done quickly with great quality trees used. The company provided input on the tree layout design which made the process extremely easy.

Fernando was great and a pleasure to work with. Any request that my wife or I threw at him was not an issue. He is so dedicated to his customers on my project he lost couple days due to weather and an unforseen problem with a place to take the dirt. He came on Easter Sunday to finish the job in the time frame he gave me. I would recommend him to any one. I have already given him a heads up that I will be using him to do my driveway in a year or two to match my gorgeous new patio.

T.R. Scapes did a fantastic job with my backyard. It was in TERRIBLE shape! Overgrown big time and the whole yard looked like a jungle. They removed a tree stump, trimmed my tree's, took out all the weeds and buckthorn that was everywhere in the yard. It now looks completely different and so much bigger and clean looking. Looks fabulous. My only disappointment was that I had asked for sod for the entire front and backyard. I only received two areas of sod in the backyard. Overall they are fabulous for cleaning up your yard. Mine was a true mess. Everyone extremely polite, very hard working and professional.

These guys were amazing. The work they did was top notch and much more affordable than other companies on Thumbtack. Our backyard beds were an absolute disaster. We gave them our vision and they made it happen...and they went above and beyond by doing some extra work they thought would look good. We are extremely pleased with our final product and would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to do some landscaping!

Beltran has been servicing our neighborhood for a humber of years. While I was struggling to find the right landscaping company, my neighbor was already enjoying the professionalism and quality that Beltran was providing. After seeing the results, we called and spoke to the Beltran team. In terms of landscaping design and care we've never looked back. I trust their judgement, and have come to know that when they promise to begin and complete a job they are on-time. The Beltran team and employees never leave a job incomplete and thoroughly walk my property with me to review and answer questions. We'll continue to call Beltran for small and large jobs (they also trim and remove, plant trees), and look forward to their work, as our landscaping always looks better when they visit.

Julio and Jose's Company has an excellent service and professionalism..they offered me the best service at the best price...they have a lot of experience without doubt . We loved the service we received from this company from start to finish. They have removed a huge red oak tree in the backyard in just a couple hours and clean up the yard perfectly. We would definitely recommend this company . We found about them from a referral from a co-worker who was also very happy with the work they provided. Ace Tree Service was my best choice thank you 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.
