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!

James & his brother showed up as promised and took away the stove I hired them to take, plus several other items of junk that I asked them to remove all for the initial quoted price he quoted me. I would hire them again without reservation.

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!

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.

Came across Builder Bob on Thumbtack when researching backyard playset installers. Bob was very responsive and was able to commit to an installation date quickly. He arrived on time and installed the playset in the time estimated. We couldn't be happier with the quality of work, professionalism and easy going nature. Would definitely hire again.

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!

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!

    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.
