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.

I recently contracted with MJB Landscaping and Construction to re-landscape both my front and back yards. My experience with the company from the beginning to the end of the project was outstanding. Mark, Alberto and the entire crew were all very knowledgeable, talented and efficient. Mark wants to ensure that his clients express their ideas and design preferences first and will then offer his own creativity to help the client finalize the project into a beautiful completion.

Joshua and his team have completed three projects for us. They are quick and do a great job. Joshua is very professional and always gets back to us quickly with his bids, then gets the project started ASAP. I would highly recommend Green Bean's Organic Ideas for any landscaping needs.

We added new sod to our front yard and Michael and his team were able to provide a great value and knock out the work in one day. They were also able to provide additional recommendations, answer other landscape questions and provide additional services/requests on the fly. Was very happy with the project and will definitely use Stay Fresh for future jobs.

Since we moved in, our yard has been the eye-sore of the street. We work so much, and there are so many other home repairs keeping us busy that we never had time to make it nice. We’ve had many landscapers out, but they always flake. Usually they just disappear and never return our calls. This year we tried again, sent a bid request out, only 2 replied. One said he’d be here at 2 and never showed up, never heard from him again. But Mark from Brady Landscaping called us, asked if he could swing by same day, and DID. His bid was excellent, he knew what we were looking for, and within a week our from yard is finally what we’d always hoped for. They introduced a level and border, built a retaining wall, finally resolved our irrigation mess (our trees thank you!!!!). They also resolved major rainwater drainage areas that have been leaking into our garage! They found that exact mix between delivering what we want and setting our expectations for what would actually work, so that the end result is modern, CLEAN, and our neighbors say, extremely pretty. We’re so glad we found you, Mark, and very very happy with our experience with Brady Landscaping.

I hired Green Bean's Organic Ideas to refresh my back yard landscaping and plant several very large trees. They did a great job! Josh and his crew were talented, friendly, and timely. They showed up when they said they would and their work was excellent. I am planning on hiring them again to do a few more things in my yard in a month or so.

I cannot say enough good things about this company. I had 5 landscapers turn down my project because it was less that $1,000. They responded on a Thursday, met me Friday night at my house, we agreed upon a price and they showed up Monday morning to do the job. They did an excellent job and were in constant contact with me. I would very highly recommend them.

I am very impressed with SOGO Professional Hardscapes. They transformed my back yard and front walkway. Our communication was a little slow at first but once we established the details of the job they showed up earlier than expected, on time every day, and knocked out our project. I plan on posting pictures of the final job once I touch up a few of my landscaping details. I will recommend these guys to anyone.

I hired Mark to put in a brick pathway from my front yard to the back yard. Upon my initial contact, Mark was extremely responsive and quick to come out and give me an estimate. Within 2 days, his crew was already working and finished the project within a very reasonable timeline at an extremely reasonable price. Prior to any additional work, I was contacted and given both the pros and cons of doing a little extra to make the project even better than originally thought. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out - 10/10 would hire again for all major landscaping projects in the future.

Ernesto was fantastic to work with!! He definitely deserves all the good reviews on here and my husband and I highly recommend him! He quickly contacted me after I submitted the request through Thumbtack and even offered to do the bid that same evening. When he came out to do the bid he was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Immediately after just walking into my backyard, he recognized an issue with the grading and knew that my basement had been flooding because of it. Ernesto was able to come out and take care of our sod request within a week of the bid and he offered a very reasonable price. He did an incredible job and our backyard looks amazing!! He and his crew worked efficiently while still making sure everything was done with the highest quality. We will definitely be hiring him again to take care of our grading issues and any other landscaping needs that arise.

I hired Sean to do some work on a rental home I had up for sale. He gave me a quote of approximately $7200, I signed the estimate and he did the work. I paid him $10,000 which included the installation of some landscaping lights. In hopes of speeding up his incredibly slow progress I offered him $300 per light. There were 6 lights and 2 spotlights. That left a tip of $1,000 because his work was good even though it took almost 3 weeks. About a week later I get an email from him with an estimate for approximately $18,000!!!! I was shocked!! On top of that he gave me $2,000 in receipts for materials that were made up of half his own tools. Now he is threatening to file a lien against the new owner! I think he’s running a scam, because he said something about this not being his first rodeo! He told me that he knew exactly how to file a lien. I’m just sick
