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.

We manage an ever growing group of AirBnB properties near Old Town Scottsdale that require a fair bit of landscaping upkeep. Noel’s is NOT the first landscaping company we’ve used and I don’t see that as a negative. We’ve been able to see the unfortunate results when working with a company that is only there for money but has no care for the quality of the work and no pride in their results. It’s a shame, but it happens. We contacted Noel’s on here and he was out the same day to discuss everything and showed up with his group a few days later to start. All of the property looked amazing! There’s nothing more satisfying to me than to walk outside and smell the freshly cut grass (luckily I have no allergies) and see how amazing everything looks! We are very pleased with the work this company is providing us! We hope to continue to have them taking care of our landscaping for a long time! Thanks Noel’s Landscaping!!

Divine Desert Landscape did a great job saving our tree that nearly fell down from a recent wind storm. They pruned and trimmed the tree and pushed it straight. Ivan even gave us tips on how to water it so as to prevent this sort of thing happening again. I would recommend Ivan Moreno for any type of landscaping job you require. We will probably be using them again!

I had an unusual experience with a landscaper today. Normally when I contact a landscaper I feel like I have the plague. They rarely return calls or show up on time. Not George. He was great. He was responsive, charged a fair price, and showed up when he said he would. He also did a great job on site. I am planning on using him regularly. Give him a shot. You will be glad you did.

Ricardo came right out and gave me a bid on work that included fixing a fence that others would not touch. His landscaping bid was lower than the other bids and he put me on the schedule first thing. Very prompt

Jorge and his crew installed AstroTurf in our back yard and we couldn't be happier with the results. He was on time, stayed within the budget, thorough and very knowledgeable about his job. I would recommend him in a heart beat for any landscaping needs.

Gerald Mindock I spent hours researching Artificial Grass and the companies that install it. The best prices for your money on Artificial Grass is C-V Landscaping which I hired and I found them on Thumbtack. Eli, owner, of C-V Landscaping was very professional, personable, very hard working and will work with you on your project. After 40 years in teaching I retired and I feel I’m good at judging the character, honesty, and the overall nature of a person which Eli fills the bill. Eli really impressed me on how he took my design I wanted for my backyard and it turn out exactly how I wanted it to be. Eli is easy to work with and is excellent in his communication skills. He really wants to please you and make sure things are right. Some of the comments by other reviewers on Thumbtack seemed to lack patients and really never tried to work with Eli on getting their project started. I would hire Eli in a heartbeat to do future landscaping projects that I would want to have completed in my yard. I Rate Eli with FIVE STARS!

We were thrilled with the work that the HDK Team did! They took our ideas and made them come to life. The work they did was done when they said it was going to be and within the budget that was agreed upon. We are hiring them again on some other projects and have referred them to friends and family looking for a landscape professional.

My family is very happy with AZ Turf Pros! Being quarantined and home all the time created a need to push forward and get turf done so my son had somewhere to play. Everything was great and within a couple weeks my backyard was transformed. Fair pricing, no hidden costs, honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had with a landscaping project, highly recommended!

Wow! After three years in Scottsdale we’ve finally found a landscaper we want to work with forever. Austin was committed to making sure we were happy and trust me we didn’t always know what we wanted. If I could rate this 6 stars I don’t think it would be a high enough rating. We look forward to working with Austin and his team again. Thank you for making it feel like home.🏡

I have not used the service as yet, but will be next month. He did however impress me by showing up on time. J Lawn service did not and I had to make several calls to find out if they were coming. He finally did call an hour after he was suppose to be there and said he had a dead phone and would I like to reschedule. The dead phone didn't keep him from showing up, so that is why Joe from Noels landscaping got the job.

Arnol came to my rescue to take care of my neglected yard. My prior landscaper suddenly disappeared and I was in a panic to find someone to take care of my overgrown bushes and weeds. I posted on Thumbtack and Arnol responded right away. He quoted me a price that was substantially lower than other professionals I had come look at my yard. He then asked to show up the next morning (Thanksgiving Day) to make sure that my yard looked good for my guests. He showed up promptly and did a beautiful job of making my yard look polished. Arnol agreed to honor his original quoted price even though I know that my yard was substantially more work. I increased his fee because I was so impressed with his hustle and skill. Will be using for biweekly maintenance from now on!
