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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

We asked for and received 3+ quotes for the Landscaping / irrigation/ lighting and pruning job we had. Only Luis Landscaping was able to handle ALL of the jobs we had requested. And Not only that, he had all the Licences & Bonding required by our HOA. ((Not all the bidders could say this.)) Once our bid was accepted, the work started immediately with his crew arriving on time each day and working quickly. Luis handled any revisions requested and with a minimum of hassle for either one of us. Luis kept us appraised during the entire project......... something one doesn't often see or receive. We very heartily recommend Luis Landscaping to anyone who needs work to be done, in fact this company will be handling our ongoing upkeep program also. It is refreshing to work with a company that has integrity and the professional standards that Luis Landscaping has and their work shows it. I welcome any questions reference the work done from any prospective customers Luis has. Gordy & Linda Kribs Surprise Arizona.

Appreciate everything about this company, from the start with Isaias and his employees were nothing but professional and curious. When the work was being done was kept informed and was asked if there’s anything else I would like. Would strongly recommend E&S for any landscaping and yard work need

Jesus was quick to respond on app and scheduled to come out and give an estimate the next day. Estimate was incredibly reasonable. Jesus then scheduled to come out the following day after providing the estimate and his team did an amazing job. Our yard was in need and overdue with landscaping. We had set up I would text him for the next month to schedule. Again, did an amazing job and hoping to continue working with Jesus and his team.

We were so happy with everything he did for us. Which was no easy task. We had a Hardscape done in our backyard plus we had him trim ours trees front & back. The removal of our Bigger size rock landscaping was just not to our liking so they removed it all & put what we choose. We will be hiring him again for our front yard. Keep his number handy people he’s the guy you want!

Castita Landscaping and Lawn Maintenance did a really great job for me. I just bought a house and it was a bit overgrown and needed some TLC, trimming, weeding and mowing. They came out within 24 hours of connecting with them, I was scheduled really quickly and the rates for what I needed were reasonable. They completed some clean up, weeding and mowing. My yard looks really great again!!! I'm very happy and am looking forward to continued service. Definitely, I recommend.

We have previously had negative experiences with contractors, however our experience with Yzagere Enterprises has more than compensated for the past; and completely restored my faith in the art and science of professionalism and quality. From my first contact with Mr. Yzagere, I was extremely satisfied with his prompt responses, on a consistent basis. He used my crude rendering concept for our backyard beach look, and created perfect 3-D renderings that captured each detail. Yzagere Enterprises worked closely with us, working hard and successfully to create our perfect staycation yard! Every type of plant and plant color I requested was planted precisely where I wanted. Quality materials, at reasonable prices were reasonable. We cannot express enough appreciation for Mr. Yzagere and company, and will call on his expertise for any future landscaping needs!

Within 2 hours of agreeing on a very fair price Luis had his crew here working! These guys worked very hard and acted as if they were taking care of their own properties. I watched as they really took the time even through the heat to make sure the irrigation rerouting,landscaping and amazing outdoor tile work was done right. Luis even went out of his way to have his guys trim my palm trees and install a leaking irrigation valve. He's extremely honest and humble and if you have the smallest concern he wants to make it right. I won't go with any other company and I was one to watch over this job from start to finish. Within the next few weeks He's doing another job for me and I have him doing a yard at a new build. Sorry but the before and after pics are mixed in
