Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

How much does landscaping cost per square foot?

The cost of landscaping can vary widely based on the type of plants you wish to have, the amount of grading required, the condition of the land before work begins, and other factors. Adding in designer or high-end landscaping, as well as hardscaping such as sidewalks, walls, or patios will add to the cost. To find out how much your landscaping will cost, contact landscapers near you.

How much does landscaping improve home value?

Landscaping your property can boost the value of your home between 5% and 15%, according to Better Homes & Gardens. They specify that this is the amount of value added when you upgrade the condition of your landscaping from poor to good, though these terms are subjective. 

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.

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.

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.

I used to always do my own landscaping but have been far too busy and ended up with a mess for a yard. I have tried a number of landscapers in the past and was never really happy. J J’s landscaping completely blew me away. They were great at communication right from the start, showed up on time, and did a wonderful job for a great price. I have now hired them for monthly service. I highly recommend them.

He also leveled out my rocks and made my yard look as good as new! thank you for going above and beyond! We will definitely be recommending Paul and using him for all our future landscape needs!

They redid my backyard rocks and irrigation system and i was so happy with the work. I ended up doing my whole front yard landscaping, ripping out an old huge ficus tree and replacing old rocks with brand new design that Jeff came up with! Amazing work for a great price!

I'm so glad I went with this company!! We needed a one time cleanup in our front and backyard. Ambro exceeded our expectations!! Which is hard to find a landscaping to do that these days!!! He takes his time and takes pride in his work!! And he didn't pressure me into committing to a monthly maintenance. But I will definitely be using him again!!

We have been looking for landscapers months. We talked to so many companies, but no one will show up and talk with us at our property, because we have a lot many things to do at our house. He are the one who showed up and explained everything we need with knowledge and reasonable price. Now our backyard is as clear and clean as we needed.

Paul Jr. and his team recently completed my new backyard. Paul Jr. was very responsive to every question and request I had throughout the project. His communication alone would be a reason I would recommend him for any landscaping work. His team did a great job and finished the project quickly so my family was able to enjoy our new backyard before Christmas.

Cesar and his crew did an amazing job with our landscaping at our new construction home. He’s professional, responsive and committed. I know Cesar has other jobs, but he made me feel like my job was his priority. He provided daily updates and let me know when his crew would be on site. I appreciate his work and communication through the entire process. Thank you Cesar!

They were supposed to come at 9am, but didn't show up until noon. Said they were waiting on the sod to be cut and would be there between 10:30am and 11:00am. They didn't prepare the ground first, just planted the sod. Used a pick to break up the dirt, and hit the main water line which they had to repair when they were adding the additional sprinkler heads. Put in 3 additional sprinkler heads. Two of them were the wrong size. They put in half circles which should have been quarter circles causing the sprinklers to spray my shed instead of part of the sod area they had planted. They turned off functional valves saying I needed to replace all of them in one of the control boxes. They replaced one valve solenoid. This resulted in flooding of my lemon tree and an area of the grass that was not planted in sod. The sprinkler heads kept running and would not turn off. The area where the sod was planted was not getting enough water. I was charged $1125 which I paid them and when I called to let them know there was a problem, and asked them to come out and check their work, I was charged another $65. I didn't trust that they knew what they were doing. I called a landscape professional who came out and replaced the sprinkler heads they had installed, another solenoid, and had him adjust all the sprinklers which are working fine. He accomplished this in 30 minutes which took R & C landscaping and clean up over 2 hours when they came back the second time, and were unable to fix the problem. The landscaping professional only charged me $80. Beware of this company. They would be better suited to stick with their junk removal and cleanup. I definitely did not get what I paid for with this company.

Want to say thank you to Sean and the rest of the guys at Empire Landscapes for the outstanding work they performed. They cleaned up the overgrown branches and shaped my lemon tree. They removed a few Lantanas that were damaged from frost and shaped other bushes. My lawn was also edged and mowed. My yard was very clean when I got home....looks great! It was great meeting Sean, he came through on everything we discussed. Very well priced and they complete the job when they say they will. Will definitely hire again and recommend to others.

Roberto is incredible! I highly suggest him for any landscaping needs! He gave me quote to clean up my yard which was without a doubt fair and reasonable. He was able to squeeze me in just a few days later. The yard was a huge undertaking and he did not disappoint. He reset my irrigation and drip system. He cleaned up all debris and even went as far as removing dog waist and bringing my trash can in. He is a true class act and takes pride in his work! I will for sure continue to utilize him.

Disappointed. When he was about 20 minutes late for my estimate... I was the one who reached out to him. He told me he was still in Scottsdale on a job. That's totally fine... But just let me know. So, I try them again and I haven't heard from them. I know my job isn't a huge landscaping overhaul... But I'm someone who can't physically do it all, have no idea what to do, and just need assistance. I just wish he would have said they don't do minor softscape. Or don't reply to my request. Hopefully you will have better luck than me with this company.
