Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Much better than expected, especially for Florida. Professional, on time, competitive pricing and, so far, excellent work. They removed my existing landscaping yesterday and cleaned up when they were done. Today new landscaping will be installed. I'll follow up on this review when it's all done.

Jay came to give me an estimate for landscape maintenance but we ended up being outside their area. He came anyway and educated me on what to expect from a landscape company - we are new to FL. Went well beyond expectations - I really wish I could hire them!!

New to Thumbtack and new to Pro-Vision Lawn. The owner, who is a professional AND a perfectionist, came to go over my plans and gave me an estimate that was very indicative of the final price. More importantly, the attention to detail is unlike that which you typically see in South Florida. I just can't say enough good things from design, to irrigation, to pruning, to planting, re-landscaping, Pro-Vision Lawn and Landscape is all inclusive, and you won't be disappointed. AND they do REAL monthly maintenance based upon your needs and every detail from weeds to trimming to pest issues! Give them a call today!

Christiano, the owner works alongside his crew. Their prices were competitive, but their work is far SUPERIOR. On Point had to come in and complete what another company failed to finish. I will never use another company again. Also, as a real estate broker working and living in Boca Raton, they are the only Landscape company I will refer to my customers moving forward.

Five Star Landscaping is a remarkable company! I would hire them again in a heartbeat. I was away while my courtyard garden was placed, and I trusted them! Andrea is very responsive and knowledgeable. I knew that my garden was placed in the proper care. My plants are thriving and extremely healthy. Do not hesitate to hire them, you will not be disappointed. I will attach a before pic as well!

Highly recommend Andres and his team. Andres helped us design our dream landscaping. He responded quickly to all of our questions and completed the job on time. Affordable, professional, and high quality service. Most importantly they want to make sure everything looks good and that you are happy. His team recommended a few modifications during the project that completely blew my mind and surpassed all my expectations. I will definitely use them for any future projects.

Roody Excellent, the owner of ProCare, is one very nice, humble, knowledgeable and completely honest contractor and business man. I asked him to supply me pictures of the various plants I wanted to make a decision on the job, and he sent them to me within 24 hours. Showed up 48 hours later on time, and completed the job ( refreshing and updating my existing landscaping) in record time, all at a very reasonable price. Verdict : HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ! | A + Contractor

The name says it all, five star all the way. Andres was amazing to work with! He was so patient and flexible with me when I made a million changes. Always on time and always super responsive. He made the whole process so easy and his prices were more than fair. He listened to what I wanted and made wonderful recommendations along the way. I have found my forever landscaper and I would highly recommend five star to anyone.

Thankful for the mulch that was placed throughout our property. But as far as the planting, was expecting better plants and something that would fit with our landscape. Also was looking for a clean up around our area, which was not great. An old plant of ours was still outside and we ended up having to remove ourselves even though we had thought it was part of the “clean up” process, which is what he was hired for. Our fault for not going over these things thoroughly with him. If we had done so, we probably would have gone with another gardener.
