Rachel Rockwell says, "They did an AMAZING job on our backyard. Before our backyard was literally a dirt pit. We have trees that shade our backyard so it was impossible to get grass to grow. We have lived in our house a few years and never got to enjoy our backyard space because everytime we would go back there we ended up covered in dirt. We have 3 dogs that would play back there and then bring all the dirt in when they came inside. So I was having to constantly sweep multiple times per day. Getting artificial grass was absolutely worth it and completely transformed our backyard. Lissette and her husband came out the same day to give me a quote. They were very professional and had the best price out of the 3 estimates I had gotten. They were able to get us on their schedule the next week. Our backyard proved to be a bit more difficult than anticipated due to previous leveling issues, so it took a little longer than expected, at no fault of their own. But they went above and beyond to make sure our yard was perfect. Even doing more than what was necessary. I also was very impressed by the great line of communication with them. I was able to text Lissette throughout the day for updates and would get a response immediately. I would absolutely recommend them! Very affordable, professional, and great communication!!"See more

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.

Start contacting landscapers near you to get free estimates and start planning your project today.

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.

Very professional , polite and hard working landscapers. I let Ricardo know what flowering plants I’d like in the front flower beds and he found and planted beautiful healthy plants. The flower beds look wonderful. They also mow my lawn and I’m real happy with their work. I would definitely recommend Ramirez Landscaping to anyone!

I highly recommend Hardy Landscaping LLC. Garrett kept in touch with me throughout even sending me photos of the supplies he planned on using to get my approval before doing the job. My yard looks beautiful and I am sure to enjoy it for many years. I would not hesitate to use Hardy Landscaping again.

DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB!!!!! After working with Garrett and his team, I will never contact another landscaper! I needed a huge project done quickly and they didn’t hesitate. I know nothing of landscaping so I told Garrett to do what he thinks would look the best. This I did not regret! I had a huge baby shower for my wife at my house the very next day and every single person commented on how beautiful it was. We look forward to working with Hardy landscape in the future! The pictures they put on their website of my house look absolutely amazing!!

New landscaping in the backyard including soil amendments, plants, mulch and aggregate material. That was all done cohesively with new irrigation lines to make watering more effective and less costly.

My husband and I have been searching for a professional landscaper to redo our front and back yard for over 3 months. To say we thought we found 3 qualified businesses before we found JRJ was laughable. James (the owner) was immediately responsive, knowledgeable in what we needed and able to meet our guidelines for our HOA and provided sketching as well as out the box ideas to make a one of kind look for our home. He has been constantly in communications with us as the the new landscaping takes mold and I’m excited to see the final product when it’s all done. His passion for his work clearly comes thru and we will certainly refer JRJ to our neighbors, friends and family for landscaping.

We had a wonderful experience with Venice Landscapes! They were professional and worked extremely hard. We are beyond pleased with the work they have done. They grappled with our backyard and roots. And cleaned up everything afterwards. Highly recommend!

Venice Landscape did an outstanding job. They exceeded my expectations with their professionalism, promptness and attention to the details. The shrubs and flowers they selected for the project were of top quality. William made sure that I was completely satisfied and went beyond the scope of the project to enhance the work. They clearly separated themselves from the competition. I would not hesitate to use them again for future projects.

We hired Venice Landscaping to replace gravel with shell mulch. Will went above and beyond to provide exceptional service. We requested the job to be done by Friday because we had some guests coming in to town the next day. They fit us in their schedule, even staying until dark on Friday to get it done. We’re very happy with the quality of work and plan to hire Venice in a few months to replace the gravel in our back yard too!

Super super happy with The Goat landscaping! I needed mulch placed around 140 trees and plants lining my property, the team did a beautiful job and left a really tidy yard and really good looking lines around all the trees. They also did a tidy up on all the plants which wasn’t on the job list and checked my irrigation system to make sure all the heads were pointing in the right direction to sufficiently water the property. I’m really happy with the work and pricing, will definitely use again and highly recommend!

He was the 1st landscaper to respond on thumbtack, which speaks volumes. It is always a plus, when dealing with any type of subcontractor, to have great communication. And he did, consistently. He came out to my house, gave me great suggestions and then he got me the quote by the next day. The price was very right and he got the job. He came out and got the job done quickly and it looks fantastic. He is prompt, responsive and communicative. He is friendly, professional, and great at what he does. He makes your house look like it should.
