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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Gerardo and his assistant were very professional and did an excellent job with our landscaping. We had them place a border around the front and side of the house and fill it in with rock and mulch. They also cut down the overgrown bushes and trees. They arrived on time, provided us with a reasonable price, and completed the work in a day. The yard looks great and we would recommend this Company to anyone looking for a Landscaper.

My husband and I met with Mr. Vogel on Saturday. After discussing our landscaping project with him, he was immediately on the phone checking to be sure he would be able to provide all the plantings that were discussed. He will start the project on Monday and will finish on Tuesday. Can't possibly get more professional than that!

I needed two trees removed from the front of my house. Nash responded to me quickly, came exactly when he said he would prepared to do the job and did it quickly. His quote was far better then anyone else as well. He spent time explaining things to me and that was very appreciated. His extensive knowledge of landscaping, trees, etc. was very reassuring. I could not be happier with the entire process. I will hire him for all of my needs in the future.

I had a bunch of bulk mulch (total 5 cubic yards) that I had sitting in my driveway that I needed to have installed in my landscaping right away before a party I had planned for the weekend. I was skeptical that I could find someone on short notice just a few days before the party. Got on thumbtack and Garcia responded within a few minutes of me contacting them and provided a very reasonable bid and was able to start the following day. Came out and performed all work as promised. Would definitely use again.

Tim and his helper did an incredible job with my landscaping project. I didn't even have an exact idea of what I wanted, and just put the project in his hands to make it look good. Tim even drove to Home Depot and to pick up the mulch/flowers/etc that were needed since I didn't have any means of doing so. Some of the areas were a complete mess and now they look absolutely amazing. They were tremendously friendly, told me a bit about their background, and were incredibly thorough in their work. Highly, highly recommended due to their professionalism and A+++ work. You won't regret it.

Michael Ashley and his crew did an amazing job on our patio! They were able to come out here and get it done quick while still ensuring high quality work. Everything look great. He was very communicative the whole way through the project and his crew was professional. He was on site during the digger stages of the project to ensure it was done the way he wanted and was there to answer any questions myself or my husband had. At the he spread the top soil around where it was needed most and gave advice on what we should do next to restore our yard. Will definitely hire again in the future to help me out with landscaping the rest of the property.

was given a quote to level out the yard, and place sod for the front yard. When the workers came out, they only placed sod in the corner of the yard where they leveled the yard. Several hours Before work was complete, we reconfirmed with the workers that they were doing the whole front yard, however we we saw them packing up and the yard still only had sod in the small front corner. So we went out to ask what was going on, The owner then told us, we never said we wanted the entire yard, and that he only brought 80 rolls of sod. He also said, That we couldn’t take the word of his employee because he didn’t speak English. He then went to our neighbor and told him we were trying to not pay him for the work. which was not true. Prior to him coming out, we had offered to pre-pay him the entire quote, but now i’m glad we didn’t. we had quotes from several other landscapers and none were as high has what he said it would cost for him to order more sod and come back out to complete the rest of the work. We paid him half of the quote today, for a quarter of our yard. because he did do part of it, but very disappointed in the whole experience. We have started the resolution process with thumbtack, hopefully something will be done to complete our yard.
