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.

Jimmy's Landscaping Service did a fantastic job on my lawn preparing it for sod installation. I would most certainly use them again and will be referring their services to others. Many thanks to Jimmy's Landscaping Services. Hi Jimmy and Michelle - hope all is well. Just wanted to add photos of my lawn after you all turned the ground for me. Again thank you for a job well done.

They did a great job and the man that came out to dig this ditch did it with excellent care. Once the drain pipe was installed he put my landscaping back together as it was. He worked the entire day with little to no breaks to get this done. I’m very pleased and during first big rain, the drain worked flawlessly. Highly recommend.

We had them do a small landscaping job and fix and drain. They went above and beyond and put in a better misting system, and fixed a break in our Spinkler system. They were so perfessional and on time. They went out of their way to bring flower samples to see what I would like: Eveything they did, they did in a timely manner and it looked fantastic! I would highly reccomend them!!

Danny and Theresa were fantastic to work with! They responded within hours of our thumbtack request and were out to help us re-align/post an existing tree and shrub within 48hours. They stood by their estimate, were friendly and efficient, and even provided some free guidance on our lawn maintenance and rain bird system. Would 100% recommend and plan to use them for future needs for our lawn and landscaping needs!

James and his team were excellent. Some of the best trades team I've worked with - let alone, landscape company. He was able to come out to the house quickly, give me my quote quickly, and started work less than a week later. I was impressed by their work ethic as well. Everything in my sandy backyard was ripped out for prep and then leveled so I didn't have a wavy backyard. Sod came down the next day and they worked through the hot day until it was finished. They carefully watered the ground before laying down the sod and they transformed my backyard from a pile of dirt to a lush green oasis. I was thoroughly impressed at the quality and still look out over my backyard with a smile. They did a great job and you would be a fool not to hire them as your landscape company! Thanks James! I posted some before and afters so you can see the change!

First of all, I've been hiring via Thumbtack quite a bit but this is the first time I receive such an outstanding service and quality. It's all started with the communication. Enddic was fast to respond, came to my property and went over the project with me. He also was the first to submit an accurate quote which reflected everything we had talked about. I was trying to find someone who is knowledgable and could suggest some things I was not sure about (I was re-landscaping the whole front yard). Enddic is exceptional in this too. He is very attentive, suggested good options and at the same time was flexible with my asks to let me decide a bit later. A very important part - very often you deal with a sales/owner and once quote is signed you will never see them again. Not the case with this provider. Enddic was part of the crew, he knew everything we agreed on and we even did some changes on the fly which resulted in much better outcome. HC Landscaping is also reasonable in terms of prices. All in all, that's probably the first service I would recommend to all my friends without any hesitation.

We first hired Ernesto to do some landscaping and putting in sod. He did a terrific job and so we then hired him to resurface and paint our driveway. Although he had only a two-person crew, they managed to get the work done within a few days and the driveway looks great. We have hired him again to put in a walkway on the side of the house and have no doubt he will get the job done right. This is a very hard-working, honest man who stands by his work. Thanks, Ernesto!

Adam was terrific - he responded quickly to our proposal and the job was completed in less than 1 week. Rob and Cody worked quickly and followed Adam's directions to a "tee". Our new landscaping looks beautiful and the new sprinkler system for the project was also completed. Adam's suggestions for the flowers and shrubs were perfect - and he had my only request for a bird of paradise plant put in exactly where I wanted it placed. As these guys worked in mid 90* temps they really should earn at least a 8 start rating!
