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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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 worked with Jose and his team on revamping our front yard landscaping, adding sprinklers and drip lines, and undertaking an extensive yard cleanup. Everyone did a great job...Jose and his team are friendly, responsive, thorough and Jose's prices are very competitive. We are very happy with how our landscaping turned out. We highly recommend Rivers and Waterfalls and will call them for our future landscaping needs.

Arellano landscape is absolutely amazing, he Installed turf at our house and my mother in laws. It looks incredible. My mother in law house had no landscaping at all and he had to level it. At our house we had horrible grass and mud that he had to pull up and then level it. Also he built a beautiful fence and gate that made a dog run. I would highly recommend him and would use him again!

Hi all! I recently hired Arellano pro landscaping company to totally landscape my whole all dirt backyard and wanted to give a rave review! Before I hired this company I also got estimates from 4 other companies.Let me explain my deciding decision in hiring this company. This company was the first I had out for an estimate, the owner Vince listened to what I thought I wanted in my yard and told me he would get an estimate to me. I got the estimate right away. After a couple days of thinking about it, I messaged him that I’d like him to come back out to discuss some small changes. He came out that day. All in all I had him out 2 more times to go over some changes. Again he was at my house quickly. He was always very patient and nice while listening to my ideas, and gave me ideas as well. Even though two of the other estimates were very close to his, in the end I decided to go with his company as I was impressed with his endless patience, how fast he always responded to my messages and how fast the revised estimates got to me. Then I was further impressed with how well he and his crew got my yard transformed! Even if i wanted something done differently or added midway the owner had the materials there that day. Impressed again that the owner was daily at the site early to look over the progress and if something was not as we had discussed (even if it was the smallest thing)it was righted quickly, and he was at the site throughout the day as well. The whole crew was absolutely awesome! Always showing up early and working like a well oiled machine, some working up until 8pm! And in just 6 days my yard was complete and more beautiful than my mind pictured! Including planted trees and cement walkways and steps! I have never seen men work hard labor this fast in my life. I would HIGHLY recommend this company for ANY of your landscaping projects. I will be using them in the future for my plant planting. Again, thank you Arellano Pro Landscaping for a job well done!

This is a Zero star review. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT hire Creative Outdoor Finishes and Lyman Woodworth for your project if you want the work to be fully completed, done in a reasonable time frame, have quality work performed and want to work with someone you can trust to complete the project for which you have contracted. I had a simple landscaping project that should have taken no more than 3 weeks that started in February and by July, it was still not complete. Endless excuses for the delays, not enough people to work on the project, mediocre quality work at best and a sprinkler system installed improperly resulting in several areas of dead sod. Then when Lyman and I agreed on his solution for fixing the sprinklers in July he ghosted me and will not return my calls or texts. This after paying all his invoices on time and in advance a couple times to help him out with paying vendors and the 2 people he did bring one time. Find someone who will do quality work, who will be honest with you and complete the project as written in the contract you sign. This was 7 months of exasperation and stress for me that you can avoid by hiring another responsible landscaper for your project.
