Best landscaping services in Oakland
Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, everything is more expensive. Food, clothes, activities, and of course, housing. As one of the most expensive places to buy and own property in the world, keeping your home, yard, and outdoor space looking as good as possible is important.
While I would never suggest that you should keep up with the Joneses, you don’t want your home to stick out as the ugly duckling of Oakland. And that’s where top-rated landscaping companies come in. Often within just a few hours or a couple of days, a good landscaping company can overhaul your yard and transform your outdoor space into the oasis of your dreams.
But how do you know which companies to call? Luckily for you, we did the research for you!
We’ll start off by looking at a few of the best large-scale companies in the area that are highly rated on Angi and can handle all of your landscaping needs from the ground up. Then we’ll take a look at a couple of Taskers from TaskRabbit that are perfect for smaller jobs around your yard.
