Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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 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.

A punctual and professional landscape service.

I was very impressed with Quang's knowledge and creative solutions to my landscaping needs. My husband and I are extremely happy with the job that Bao Landscaping performed. The team was extremely professional. I found that each team member actually CARED about the job they were doing, and these days, that's extremely rare. We have asked Quang to return periodically to fertilize and keep things looking fresh. He's an outstanding landscaper and a wonderful human being. I highly recommend Bao Landscaping..

Mr. Bao did a great job on my home. We bought the home as a foreclosure and there was a ton of work to be done. His prices are fair and his advice has saved me hundreds of dollars. I'm so impressed by his work and professionalism that I have referred him to my realtor. I plan on using him for all my future landscaping projects.

You can’t go wrong with hiring Derek. He is patient and very knowledgeable. I received a quote from him in Oct and had to wait for hoa approval which took months once I was ready I sent him a message and he was there the same day to look over the job. The very next day he started on my project. I had no clue what I wanted and he helped my figure it out with a smile. He was always on time and professional. I’m so happy with my landscaping. I read the reviews before hiring him and man ole man they were right. Thank you Derek for your display of professionalism and making my vision come true.

I hired Quang, the proprietor of Bao Lawn Care Services, to be the 'full service' maintainers of my residence at the beginning of May, 2015. 'Full service' was agreed to mean more than simply cut-blow-and-go as Quang was to address the keep of flower beds, trees, hedges, weeds, and more. After expressing to Quang that his pricing was more than double what I was accustomed to paying, he assured me (and I quote), "I would be WOWED." Quang started strong making lots of plans for improvements and changes to the landscaping of my home. First Quang requested $70 above and beyond the 'full service' fee to remove berries from some palms. Next Quang asked for $270 more for one thing or another and then again for more than $800 to replant four flower beds. With the first request, I provided a check of $170 though only $70 was requested. For the second, I expressed concern regarding the cost, yet provided a check. Now comes the fun, "Quang, where did you go?" or "Quang, what is taking so long", I messaged Quang on more than one occasion. "Not 'wowed' yet", I message on still another. Each time I expressed discontent with both the slowness of Quang's operation (though paid in full for every penny requested) as well as the questionable execution of his work (weeds remain in my pavers and flower beds, sidewalks never edged, mulch laid so thinly it washed away, trees still have dead fronds dangling from palms, etc). Finally, at the beginning of July and more than $1500 poorer, I had to tell Quang his services were not longer needed. To say Quang took the news poorly is an understatement. He demanded another $300 dollars for 'services rendered' despite the fact he only re-planted two of the four beds we agreed to for which I had already paid over $800 and one of the beds he planted was with 'used' plants apparently removed from another of Quang's job sites where they were overgrown and not wanted. These 'used' plants all died within days. All of this, I am able to suffer. The final indignation came when Quang sent repeated texts and emails to me stating things like: "I should be ashamed of myself for not liking his work." That, "I was unprofessional and not worthy of him seeking a remedy for my discontent." That, "I should tell my wife I was firing him and why so she could talk some sense into me." That, "I only complained about the poor quality of his work when he asked for more money." On and on and on. There are other equally or even greater offensive details to describe my experience with Quang and Bao Lawn Care, but I trust the reader gets the point. My recommendation? Avoid this lawn service unless you desire shoddy overpriced work peppered with ample threats and verbal abuse.
