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.

Teddy and his crew did a phenomenal job of removing 10 oversized trees and replanting various more suitable trees/palm trees in their place. Being an experienced landscaper Gardner he also gave us great advice on what would look best planted. His price was best, he came out quickly to do the job and his crew cleared out like they were never there. Highly recommend One of a Kind Landscapes, Teddy is a lovely guy and great to work with.

One of a Kind Landscaping team was fantastic. They responded quickly to my request, were courteous, timely, efficient, and did a great job on trimming two oak trees in my yard that were growing out of control. Their price was honest and fair. I highly recommend this organization and will most likely engage their services again. Jackie 7/2015

Kerrol and No Problem Home Care Services is the best in town! I attempted to tackle the landscaping on my own and quickly realized I needed professional help but what I got from Kerrol was much, much more. He was able to understand my vision and provide several helpful suggestions along the way. While I had a lower budget initially, I quickly saw the value Kerrol and his team brought to the table and Kerrol was excellent in helping me understand the pricing. He even saved me money any chance he could such as repurposing the holes my dogs had dug along the fence. I intended to remove some plants to make room for a shed and instead he placed them in the holes saving me money on top soil, sod, etc. As you can see in the before and after pictures, the yard has been transformed and it is truly night and day! I will look to hire Kerrol and No Problem Home Care Services for all of my landscaping needs moving forward!!

My experience with One of a Kind Landscaping was wonderful! From first contact to completion took less than 2 weeks! It's great to have a company respond so quickly & be able to book the job right away. I had a plan drawn out & we tweeked it a bit exchanging ideas. The team of workers came out like a bunch of busy bees working for 5+ hrs. The results pleased me beyond compare! I cannot be more happy & would not hesitate to recommend this company! Thanks again for all your hard work!!

May 18, 2022 Wednesday I searched for Landscapers on Thumbtack over the weekend. I saw Cowboy Landscaping and Design and saw they had good reviews. I received a call from Chris, he was very nice on the phone and said he could come out on Monday 5/16/22 between 3:30pm - 4:00pm. At 3:45pm, I followed up with him to see what his ETA was and he told me he was held up on another job. I asked if he could still come that same day and he replied "I will know in 10 minutes". At 5:36pm I followed up again (almost 2 hours later) because he never let me know in "10 minutes" and he said he could come the next day (Tuesday) at 10:30am. On Tuesday 5/17/22 I texted him at 10:00am to confirm he would be there at 10:30am, and he said there was an Accident in Viera and that his GPS said his ETA would be at my house at 11:30am. At 11:15am I touched base with him and his ETA was now 12:00pm? I went to the house at 11:45am so I would be there by Noon. He didn't arrive until 12:45pm. When he arrived he was very nice, had a cowboy hat on and we walked around the property. He wrote up an invoice and we went over it in detail. He gave me a price (seemed high) but he sounded confident in his company and his workers and that he would make our property beautiful. He asked for payment in full (which was a red flag)..... most contractors do not do that. Most Contractors either ask for a deposit to get materials, or some will ask for payment after the job is complete. Regardless, I had a good feeling about Chris so I was willing to pay in full. When I was going to make the check out to Cowboy Landscaping and Design, he said "can you make it out to Vax Consulting?" I said "who is that?" he said that is our sister company. Well, that seemed odd to me, I have always wrote a check out to the company on the business card they give me. I make sure the contractor has an active license too in case anything were to go wrong. (there was no license # on the business card). So I told him up front that I was NOT comfortable with making it out to a company that I know nothing about. This other company was under his Mother's name. (Veronica). So he called her and told her that I was not comfortable with this. He assured me that it would be ok to write the check under Cowboy Landscaping and Designs. I wrote the check and we moved on with the day. His crew (2 guys) did not start working until 1:30pm and worked until 5:00pm. (very nice guys and it was so hot out too). This day was just labor only. (they were removing debris on the property). Before Chris left, I asked him "ok so what is the plan for tomorrow?" he told me we'll get the black mulch and the palm tree probably between 9-10am but with the mulch he might have to wait in line. (ok no biggy) Today 5/18/22 at 9:54am, Veronica (Chris's Mom) calls me to tell me that because I wrote a check to Cowboy Landscaping and Design and NOT Vax Consulting that they cannot finish the job until May 21st. (ok now I have to wait 3 more days for you to finish??) First they tell me it was ok to write the check, and then do this?? They should have done the work and not even call me. To me that was so unprofessional to do that. I paid them via check, they said it was ok, then stop the job and tell me to wait until the check clears in 3 days? They said they had some bad experiences with customers and checks. ok so you treat all customers like that? I'm not trustworthy all of a sudden? Now I have to spend more time trying to find another landscaper to finish this job. NOT a happy customer! Rant over

Teddy and his team removed numerous trees and bushes from our property, laid fresh sod, planted smaller plants and mulched the area around several palms. His team also pressure washed our entire driveway and sidewalk. Not only were they all pleasant to work with, they did a great job. My front lawn looks a millions times better and has a different look now. The difference was so great that my husband passed the house coming home because he didn't recognize the front! My husband is very particular about how things look and he was very impressed and happy with how everything turned out. I am very thankful for Teddy, Antoine, Todd, and Fred and the awesome work they did for us. I would definitely use their services again as we continue to improve our landscaping. Thank you so much for all your work. Happy Holidays!

Great experience working with Teddy and his guys. Teddy is very responsive replying to texts or emails immediately. He responded to my request for a quote on a Saturday in minutes from when I submitted it and I was in the phone with him minutes later. About an hour later he was at my home meeting with me and my wife to work up an estimate. His estimate hit my email late that day. After one more meeting to fine tune the project a few days later he started the job that Thursday and completed it by Friday. Most importantly, Teddy and his team do quality work and are all very professional while going about their work. Our landscaping looks awesome because the plants he uses are a higher quality than what you see at Lowes or Home Depot. We even had our two fountains repaired as well as our two fence gates at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend this company. You will not be disappointed.
