Jeff N. says, " We recently bought our first home out in Irvine about 6 months ago. It was ready to move in except for the backyard which was in pretty rough shape. My wife has always wanted a pool so a friend recommended Dreamscapes to us. Our pool and surrounding landscape was completed last Thursday and I must say they exceeded our expectations. The two main things I was really impressed with was that they keep us involved every step of the way, which helped keep us within budget and their utilization of the backyard space. They yard is about 8,000 sq ft which is not huge but they did a really nice job of putting the pool in and some landscaped trimming. Thanks again guys!" Read more

Richard L. says, " Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Contacted Prestige to complete a bathroom remodel and because the estimate was very reasonable I had them repair some drywall and install wood flooring in our bedroom. And since that estimate was more than reasonable, I had them finish an add-on I started but couldn’t find the time to finish. They finished the drywall, framed a closet and installed the baseboards and door trim. They also re-roofed the add on as well and tarred all of the exhaust vents on the roof. Hector, the foreman was on top of everything. He and the other employees, David, Fernando, Felipe and Jose all began each day 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time. They kept the “work dust” to a minimum by installing temporary plastic shields and paper flooring every day. The employees worked very hard with hardly a break except for lunch. Hector asked questions throughout the project to ensure our satisfaction. I have good knowledge of flooring and tiling procedures and I can tell you the work done here was great! Little details not known to normal consumers did not go unnoticed to me. The employees were professional and each wore Prestige work shirts everyday. They swept up everyday and left no trash behind (I’ve read horror stories about other company’s employees leaving their lunch trash behind at the worksites). Great employees for a great company. I feel very confident in recommending them to anybody who is in need of a remodel or any other construction needs." Read more

Your Landscaping questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do landscaping services cost near me?

Residential landscaping costs $4 to $12 per square foot, depending on the job's size and requirements. Landscapers charge $50 to $100 per hour for smaller jobs like lawn care or tree trimming. Large landscape design and installation services cost $3,000 to $15,000. Landscaping maintenance costs $100 to $200 per month.

What does a landscape contractor do?

Landscaping contractors build and install hardscaping or softscaping design plans, maintain plantings, trimming the grass and trees, mulching, weeding, and other tasks to keep the landscape looking great. Licensed landscapers are experts in soil drainage, grading, irrigation, and choosing the best plants and materials for your area. Residential landscape companies also pull permits and design plans that comply with building codes.

What are the different types of landscaping companies?

Knowing the different types of professional landscapers is important before hiring. These roles tend to overlap as most landscaping contractors offer many services.

  • Landscape designers and architects design and plan functional landscapes, residential areas, and gardens to give you an idea of the placement of trees, shrubs, and perennials.
  • Landscape contractors implement the landscaping design plan and may also create designs themselves.
  • Landscape gardeners provide landscape maintenance and lawn care after installation.

Do you tip landscapers?

Landscapers do not expect a tip. However, if the landscaping crew goes above and beyond or spends more time than expected, a tip is appreciated.

Does residential landscaping increase home value?

Proper landscaping is worth the upfront cost and can increase a home's value by 5% to 20%. The return on investment depends on the landscaping design and the plant size, maturity, and diversity. Updating and installing new landscaping counts as a tax-deductible capital improvement for commercial properties.

How do I find the best local landscaper to hire?

Start by searching our list of landscapers near you. After researching and contacting potential candidates:

  • Compare at least three estimates from professional landscapers.
  • Select landscaping companies that are licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Look at their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Ask for a written contract, warranty, and detailed estimate.
  • Be cautious of cheap landscapers as quality may suffer.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the most affordable and best landscaper near you.

What questions should I ask nearby landscapers before hiring?

When looking for the best landscapers, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been a landscaping contractor?
  • What do your landscaping services include?
  • Are you and your employees licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Are the workers your employees or subcontractors?
  • What license(s), training, and affiliations do you have?
  • Do you charge by the hour or by the project?
  • How many similar projects have you completed?
  • Can you provide me with references or customer referrals?
  • What can you start and finish the landscaping work?
  • Can you provide me a written estimate or contract with a breakdown of all costs?
  • What happens if you go over budget or there's changes to material price?
  • Do you offer work guarantees?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

Do landscaping companies offer financing?

Some landscaping companies offer in-house financing for large projects. Otherwise, there are home improvement loans or general personal loans available. However, the interest rate on landscaping loans is high, making your project more expensive.

Reviews for Lake Forest landscapers

Recent success stories from people in the Lake Forest area.
Alex N.
I am the owner of a 16 unit apartment complex here in Mission Viejo. We have a pool here ever since we purchased the property in 2008. However, it was never used and gotten quite dilapidated. The tile started to chip away and the flooring was becoming powdery from exposure to the weather. A friend of ours had used Dreamscapes to build the pool at their home so we gave them a call to see if they could help. They initially came out for the estimate and gave us some great ideas that would bring the recreational area to life. They proposed some cost effective landscaping to accent the pool that gave the place a whole new look. All the tiling was redone, inlets and outlets were replaced, and they even removed the awful diving board. The project was completed last Friday and our tenants there can't stop giving us compliments. I've never seen so many of our tenants out and about as I did this past weekend. Great Job Dreamscapes, keep up the good work.
