Ben worked with us extremely well as another contractor on our remodeling project had numerous setbacks and schedule changes. Ben adjusted to when we needed him. Quality work, and we plan to use him on more things around our house.

Right from the start, I knew I had chosen the right company. Evan was extremely professional and attentive to what I was looking to have done w/my yard. His customer service exceeded my expectations each time; you could tell he really cared about his clients and had a passion for what he did. I would highly recommend Corbin Lawn Care for any outdoor service. Between mowing, landscaping, gutter cleaning & leaf blowing, those guys do it all!

I found Garret on Thumbtack. I have been extremely satisfied with the services he has provided. He is continually responsive and has a go getter, can do attitude. He's doing landscaping work at my place of business to winterize and we will definitely continue utilizing his services going forward - spring and fall.

Outstanding job done by Diverse Services! David design a beautiful Landscape Design, he included awesome shrubs and annuals that will finally give my 3000 sqbft yard life. I was impressed of how quickly and neatly I received my quote. We definitely choose him because of his knowledge and also his professionalism and not to mention that they are always happy. So far my back yard has been cleaned of all debris, a lot of debris. They laid soil and graded my yard to move water way. They also redid my entire patio, which was done last year by another company :(. So far we are very impressed with work. This project will definitely need a second review to add to the 10 star service. Next step is to lay sod and plant my entire yard line with Shrubs. Thanks DiverseTeam..

These guys are the hardest working landscapers I’ve employed. They know what they’re doing, they don’t rush things and they do a very good job. So far they have completed the Spring cleanup, edges about 1/2 acre of trees and flowerbeds, as well as deliver & install some high quality mulch.

Pedrozas was the only one to respond. I was disappointed with the responses from the other suggested contractors from thumbtack. I most likely WILL NOT use Thumbtack again.

We had Campus Labor out to do moving of furniture and landscaping. Tough jobs we had for them. All things we couldn't do or didn't want to do ourselves. They were reliable, called when they said they would, turned up on time, cleaned up. They worked hard and were very careful and polite. I am hiring them again next week. Great value! Thanks Taji and crew!

I was listing our house to sell, and needed to quickly trench out our sump pump that was draining onto our front lawn. I must have called 15 places for quotes. Leo responded immediately and stopped by within the hour to quote it, and came back the next morning to start the project. Leo got the job done with his son very quickly and made it look amazing. You can't even tell that they dug the grass up. He even pulled weeds in the area that wasn't part of the scope of the project.... Overall extremely friendly, very fast, fair price, and quality work. I will definitely be using them again for landscaping around our new home.

Matt and his company did a great job with the digging and pouring concrete slap. I was dismayed after the install to learn that the landscape work to restore the lawn damaged by was not included. This was not illustrated in the contract and was a presumption on my part. I would recommend and consider hiring M.G.B Landscape & Grading again on future projects.

Chris, the landscaper who did the quote was on-site and active every day there was work being done. This was a nice touch as I knew that my vision was not going to be miscommunicated to another team. Each day they were on site, they worked without reservation. All team members seemed to have a strong work ethic as well as the customer's needs as first priority. The project was more work than I could do and Wisconsin Property Services stepped up and did a high quality job. **Work done on .3 acre yard: 6 french drains (2 under walkway), clearing of acidic pine topsoil, aerating, machine grading soil, overseed, and hydroseed.**

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.
