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.

Eric and his coworker did an awesome job on my yard. I was in a time crunch for a cleanup job on the rental house I was moving out of. They came to my rescue in the last few days I was in town. They worked wonders on the front and back yard! I would highly recommend Echo Mountain Landscaping for any kind of landscaping job. Thank Eric and team!

I had a small but important landscape job that consisted of removing several tons of medium/large river rock and replacing with a small gravel. Cosnova provided me with a reasonable estimate, scheduled within 2 days of my request and completed the job within a couple hours. I was thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, promptness, as well as completing the task quickly and neatly. Rodrigo and Alejandro are both very friendly and personable - I am looking forward to working with Cosnova again in the future for additional landscaping needs. Highly recommended!

I hired Gilamonster Landscaping to overseed my yard with winter grass and was very satisfied with the work that was done. I made arrangements with Gigi who was very knowledgeable in planning and managing what needed to be done. She was also reasonable on price, payed attention to detail and showed a high level of professionalism. When it came time for the work to be done, the crews were on time, efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend them. Best Chris

Eddie was incredible, the job he and his team did on my yard was great! He was able to quote and complete the whole job in 2 days! My landscaping was challenging as I had no established sprinkler system, but that was no problem for this company. He did the extra work for what I'm sure was a great deal. Additionally, he taught me how to update and maintain my pavers myself even though he could have recommended his own service. He is not looking to make a quick buck from anyone, but improve your yard and your own knowledge! I'm so impressed!

Cosnova was absolutely fantastic to work with. Rodge and Alejandro headed my backyard remodel project with professionalism, attentiveness and excellence! They showed me what my yard would look like prior to beginning the remodel and assisted me with ideas on what I could do with the space. Rodge was very responsive to any questions I had throughout the project and even helped me select the right plants for the theme we were going for. With two young kids at home, he suggested a sand pit area with the appropriate play sand. It turned out better than I could have ever expected and the kids love it. The quality of workmanship was outstanding and I was very happy with the timeline. If they said they were going to be there at 8am, then they were there by 8am. I knew what was going to happen each and every day, well before it took place. I highly recommend the guys at Cosnova Construction & Landscaping!
