Hugo and his team were great to work with. Hugo was quick to respond to our post and came out a few days later to talk about options. We appreciated how flexible he was with pricing out multiple options for us. We ultimately decided to relocate our hosta plants to the sidewalk side of the backyard fence and then replace that area with new pavers. We also decided to have them weed out around the house. Once we agreed to the work, his crew came out 2 days later to deliver materials and to get started. They worked quickly and efficiently and we saw instant progress. Hugo was around to oversee the work and to make sure we were happy. The crew came back the following morning to complete the job and again Hugo came by to make sure we were pleased and also offered some ideas for future work which we appreciated and will definitely take him up on next spring.

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.

Amazing work, got all the dead branches from 2 trees in my backyard. Cleaned up afterwards and left the yard looking great, they even took the time to re-hang a chair I have hanging from the tree! I highly recommend, they were the best price (I called around and got 5 estimates) and did amazing work!

I had a large tree that needed to be taken down in my backyard. Limbs and branches extended over the house and phone lines and it needed to be taken down very carefully. Not only did the tree get taken down without any issues or mishaps, but they did a great job cleaning up all of the debris as well. They could've done a little better job communicating when they'd be here, but overall the experience was great and they get 5 stars from me! I'll be using them for more landscaping work in early Spring due to the great job they did...especially at such a reasonable price.

We are currently in the planning stages of our project and will begin work in June. Thus far, Chris and Jason have been simply amazing. We are planning a total reno of our backyard and were not quite sure what we wanted to do. Premier Service Group came out and looked at our yard and within a few days came back with computer generated images of a base plan so we could envision how it would look. We discussed different options and they were very helpful with knowledgeable suggestions that made it a lot of fun to work with them, no stress. Chris went above and beyond in researching safe options for our pets and foster dogs to be around. We are so looking forward to working with this group, cannot wait to see our finished product!

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.

        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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
