Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does landscaping cost?

The price of landscaping varies widely due to the range of choices that can be made, but you can expect to pay anywhere from $320 and $20,000 for your landscaping work. The national average cost for a landscaping project is $2,600. 

Factors like the choice of plants, the amount and type of hardscaping, the square footage of your landscaped area, and the region you live in will have a significant effect on your landscaping cost.

Is hiring a landscaper worth it?

A landscaper is worth it if you don't want to invest a significant amount of time and effort into planting, trimming, raking, weeding and performing other operations on your garden or yard. Hiring a landscaper to perform regular maintenance in your yards and complete bigger projects is valuable if you’re looking to sell your house. A professional landscaper can make your house more appealing to potential buyers. 

Some landscapers may perform maintenance duties — remove leaves, mow lawns, trim trees and shrubs, etc. —  but they can also help you bring bigger projects to life. This may include adding a misting system, an outdoor fireplace, water features, artificial turf, a patio and much more.

Where can you buy landscaping rocks?

You can shop for landscaping rocks from a variety of different sources. The first option is large chain retail stores specializing in home improvement and gardening. Often, landscaping rocks like slate and other slabs arrive on pallets and are sold in bulk, giving you a great deal. Your local landscaping store also carries rocks, and you may even have a stone or quarry seller nearby who can sell you the rocks you need. When in doubt, contact landscaping companies near you to see if they have rocks you can purchase.

What is landscaping?

Landscaping is the intentional placement and maintenance of living plants on an area of land or in your yard. This can include trees, lawn, flowers, bushes and other plant life and often incorporates mulch and other organic matter. The primary purpose of landscaping is to provide beauty to the house or building it surrounds. 

Many landscaping companies also offer design, architecture and construction services. For example, they can help you design a yard that incorporates a patio, deck, pool, fire pit, lighting, walkways, retaining walls and more.

What is landscape design?

Landscaping design refers to the art of analyzing an existing landscape, planning how to transform it through flora and fauna design and working with a client to ensure goals are met. Landscape designers may completely transform an outdoor space or make minor modifications to enhance it. They may also call for grading and the construction of hardscaping surfaces like walkways or patios to add to the enjoyment of the space.

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.

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 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.

All-American Lawns did an excellent job on my front yard landscaping and helped with a drainage problem that I had in my backyard. Luke was extremely professional and came out to look at our yard within an hour of reaching out to him. He also planted exactly what we wanted and helped with our sprinkler system. I highly recommend All-American Lawns for your next yard project.

I advertised for someone to plant 30 holly trees 7-10 feet tall. Domanique Robinson offered to do the job for $550. I asked him to come on Monday to view the job since it probably required more effort than he anticipated. I had the holes already dug, the compost and soil on site, and the job required mixing 1/2 dirt and 1/2 compost, filling the holes, and planting the trees in mixed soil 2" above grade. He also agreed to mix any leftover soil and compost and move it to a location on site that I designated. We agreed on a price of $6500, payable in three installments, and he required cash. He showed up Tuesday with 2 men, dropped them off with no water, and no tools. I provided water, tools and wheelbarrows and found out that they had no idea how to plant anything. Although Robinson had represented himself as a landscaper, he knew nothing about the process.. I spent the whole day Tuesday teaching Robinson and his men how to plant trees. I have been doing this for 30 years, but my husband had recently contracted type 1 diabetes, winter was fast approaching, and we were not able to do the job without help. I was desperate. Wednesday morning I texted him that 1 of the holly trees had to be replanted because one-half of the root ball was exposed. I also told him that I was finished supervising his men because that was his job. Wednesday morning he showed up with no tools. I had put mine up, so he then left to buy some since he had agreed initially to provide the necessary tools. Thursday morning he asked me if I wanted to invest $150,000 in a no lose hotel deal in Branson, MO. Thursday evening, I texted him that 4 trees had to be dug up because they were below grade instead of 2" above grade. One tree was 6" below grade. All were unevenly spaced and misaligned. Friday morning, he immediately agreed that I was right, and promised to take care of the problem. Then he left to get new tires put on his truck, returned at 2 pm with pizzas for his men, and asked me where the nearest library was so he could electronically sign a contract for another deal. I let him use my computer, then he loaded up his men and left. He hadn't supervised them at all on Friday, and when I looked at the trees again, they were above grade with the rootballs exposed. I had paid him $3250 in cash by then and he had perfomed 1/3 of the job. On Saturday, I texted him not to contact me until he had received the letter I had sent him. He then said he'd had enough, and that he would be at my house on Monday to pick up his tools. I told him to bring $1083 in cash because he had been overpaid. He came to my house Monday morning, before he had received the letter, with a Saline County Deputy Sheriff. He didn't bring the cash. I told the deputy that I had a security interest in the tools, which were worth less than$200, and that any disagreement between me and Robinson was a civil matter, not a criminal matter. The deputy agreed, and Robinson left. I then showed the deputy the plantings. On Sunday, my husband took a posthole digger to the site and every tree had been planted in compost. No soil was ever mixed. The deputy looked at me and told me that that would kill my trees. Yep. I know. The only task Robinson performed correctly was to move 18 trees approximately 150' to the planting site. At most, that service was worth $20 per tree totaling to $360. Robinson owes me $2890. Dominique Robinson is either lazy, a fool, or a conman. Or all of the above. There is no doubt that I was foolish, and I hope that nobody else is taken in by this man's promises as I was. Beware!
