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.

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.

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 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.

Ramel with Miri Landscaping is a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job transforming our old 1980’s tired looking front landscaping. We had an old brick retaining wall from the 1980’s that had finally fell down due to improper install and drainage. He was able to see my vision and transform our front landscape with a beautiful new look that embodies the look and feel of Colorado by using boulders and new flagstone steps-while also rerouting and installing proper drainage to avoid erosion. He was respectful, responsive and very professional throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Miri Landscaping for both big and little jobs!

I worked with Arellano Professional Landscaping for my back yard turf installation project. There were so many variations in the sloping of my yard making it a moderate to challenging project. The Arellano Professional Landscaping, LLC, company executed the installation beautifully and with precision. I had a wonderful experience with Arellano Professional Landscaping, LLC. I was really pleased that the owner of the company Vince Arellano was personally at the site all day and throughout the day. In addition, there was a lot of attention to detail in both my interest of what I wanted for my yard and managing the terrain to make it a possibility. I would recommend Arellano Professional Landscaping, LLC for the following reasons 1) Professionalism 2) Integrity 3) Attention to Detail 4) Skill Level and Skill Level of Crew 5) Value. He charged me a reasonable rate for the type of work I requested.

I can not speak highly enough about Ernesto Cortez and Cortez landscaping!!! He is a fair, honest, hardworking gentleman who listed to what I wanted for my yard! He provided suggestions I would not have thought of and made my yard amazingly beautiful and gave me a gorgeous paver patio! I got multiple bids for my large yard and Ernesto was the most upfront about his pricing, he took updates/changes I wanted in stride and again was very straight forward with prices and timing. Cortez landscaping will be my only recommendation for landscaping and will continue to be my only choice for potential updates/ upgrades in the future. Thank you for making it beautiful!

This landscaper responded quickly and came the same day to our house and viewed our project. Seemed very professional and knowledgeable and we were excited to get the estimate and potentially work with this company. The man never emailed us the estimate like he said he would and when I emailed him a few weeks later asking for it, I got no reply. Never heard from them again.... no communication whatsoever.

Working with Sunny and his team was a pleasure. We just purchased a new home with no backyard landscaping and we’re looking for something really simple and low maintenance. I’ve been frustrated with contractors who don’t listen to us during this whole home building process, but this is not the case with Sunny. Sunny’s recommendations were spot on. He’s so easy to work with. His crew is friendly and efficient. His prices are fair and we would without hesitation recommend Sunny Daze and we’d hire his company again. Excellent experience.
