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.

Soel (Michael) is a nice person. He sets a price and get to work, no BS. He gets to work the following day if work is not complete (without any follow ups). He need some guidance on the landscaping project though.

Micheal from SoulSolutionsLLC went over and beyond what we asked him to do. We wanted our backyard cleaned up, leveled and have fresh new sod installed. The pictures speak for themselves, I can only upload 4 pics, so tried to put couple before and after pics... Excellent job, very professional. Once he has agreed to do the job he gets it done. Very hard to find people and companies commit and do what they promised to finish. Highly recommend them for any of your landscape work. SoulSolutionsLLC will be my go to company for any landscaping jobs. Thank You Micheal and team!

We are in love with our backyard makeover!! We researched many landscapers. We are very glad we chose Lone Star Lawn Care & Services. Mike and his professional team were wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. They did a wonderful job to build large flower beds and five steps in my backyard. Mike’s knowledge, experience and attention to detail and installation techniques from the initial to final walk–through made this major project perfect. Always thinking of the customer, Mike had suggestions on how to make it look better. Even with some changes to the project, Mike was patient, professional and committed to great quality. We love you and your team! We would highly recommend this team if you are looking for a landscaper!

Ascension landscaping just completed a sod installation for my front and back yard. They were great from the very beginning! The day I requested a quote they came out a few hours later and gave me a great deal (cheaper then all their competitors). They were able to complete the job in only a few hours! Overall I’m very satisfied with their work and I would recommend them.

Eric and his team were quick to get me an estimate and were able to get started the next day! They did a fantastic job and helped me select plants and a game plan that will be low maintenance as I rent the house out. My house and yard looks 10x better now. (See before and after!) I’ll be giving them a call next time I need any landscaping done. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Micheal and his team were awesome. I placed a request on Thumbtack and heard from Micheal same day (I actually reached out to a couple of companies and did not get a response back from any of them). Quoting process was quick and quote was well within my price range. After agreeing to bid, Micheal and team were able to complete in less than a week! I will add pictures when possible but I'm extremely happy with Amazin Grazin Landscape and would highly recommend them.

Michael and Lone Star Landscaping were amazing. Honestly. He happily dealt with many changes to the quote, which included multiple trips out, and a lot of particular questions about materials and if things were possible. They laid irrigation for the Rain Bird sprinkler system (very happy with this selection, since with a wifi adapter it can connect to Alexa) and then the sod (Raleigh St. Augustine). They built a new fence line and gate (8ft), removing the old fence (even the concrete posts) before. They cleaned our entire yard. The entire operation was smooth, Super Quick, and affordable. Michael's Team was amazing and we are extremely happy.

The project: Build a 2- 3 layer level retaining wall around two small areas with rock and plants. This is just some of how it went. 1) The level retaining wall quoted became double stacked bricks following the contour of the lawn. Wanting to make it work for all of us I agreed to pay extra to have it rebuilt. The results -horrible. 2) Piles of dirt / mud were compacted over the front lawn instead of being placed on tarps. I spent hours removing what I could afterwards but much of the lawn is damaged. 3) The irrigation drip system was destroyed after they cut and pulled the buried hoses thinking it was trash. They guys are very nice but they are not landscapers. I wish I could have paid them to not show up.
