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 hired AFA Landscaping for our very first landscaping project ever since we moved in. We didn’t have much knowledge about landscaping projects and we needed the patch of land around our driveway refreshed. It was overgrown with weeds, old ugly looking grasses and tree roots popping up everywhere. Joel Garcia was very good with his communication. He responded quickly and gave me a very reasonable quote for the project. What I liked the most about Joel is that he is very organized and he and his team are very hardworking. Once we decided on the scope of the project and signed a contract, work progressed very smooth and we didn’t need to get involved at all. They cleaned up after their work and if they left any tools to continue work the next day, they left it neatly piled out of the way. They took their time laying landscaping fabric to keep the weeds away. We also asked them to plant roses and I think it’s amazing Joel asked us to select the roses from the flower bin and that helped support a local business as well. He also provided valuable inputs to the project by suggesting installation of a siding where our land bordered with our neighbors so the mulch wouldn’t land on their lawn. I’m sure the neighbors will be grateful for that as well. I definitely recommend AFA landscaping and will hire them again in the future for more projects.

The job went very well. The employees at J&P were polite, hard-working and skilled. They removed much of my existing landscaping, installed a new drip system, planted new scrubs and trees and put down new mulch. Quality of work and timeliness was outstanding. I would hire them again for my next project.

Great job! Jordan had some really great ideas for my landscaping needs. I wanted to minimize the amount of grass I had in both front and back yards and it looks amazing. He gave me some hints on how to keep it up and we also have some ideas for spring. Thanks guys!

I was very happy with J & P Landscape and the work they did for me. Brandon Kortgaard was great to work with. Number one - what a communicator. I always knew what was going on and when. He was always prompt and did what He said was going to do on time. I took the time myself to look at various bushes and Perennials to know what I liked. Brandon had of course made suggestions but was very willing to make changes for me on the fly. He had even planted most everything before I had even given him a deposit. Who does that? I would sure trust J & P. I had a mature landscape that needing some tuning up. We removed Some old matured plantings and planted approximately 53 various bushes And perennials. New edging was replaced, 3 block walls were fixed, 2 were Leaning and had to be dug and reset. Four bushes were trimmed and manicured properly for the 1st time in their life. Fence fixed in a few places where rock had pushed it back. Concrete patio and 13 concrete Steps all replaced. Some concrete in front walk replaced. Patio was in Back yard all work had to be done by wheelbarrow. All workers seemed to be very tidy and caring about their various tasks. Of course I Had received 3 other bids on my project. J & P was very competitive and fair. I will Definitely use J & P Landscape in the future. Mike S.

Fernando and his team did a fantastic job! They understood our vision for our backyard, made excellent suggestions when we weren’t sure quite what to choose, and were communicative of what to expect. They worked so very hard and were super efficient, seeing to every detail and making sure we were happy every step of the way. We are simply thrilled with their work and will be recommending them to everyone we know! Thank you, Mountain View Landscaping!!
