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.

Oscar and Superior Painting and Landscaping did a great job! Their pricing was fantastic and they put in the extra time to get the yard cleaned up and really looking nice. I plan on contacting them again for other landscaping jobs, and the other work they offer. If you're reading this and on the fence I strongly recommend contacting reaching out and getting an estimate. You won't regret it.

Wow! Rafael really provided an outstanding landscape for our home at a very reasonable price. He has a great eye for laying out the project and then delivers with precision. We were astounded with the superb work provided. We will require his services again in the spring for other landscaping along side and rear of home. We certainly wished we had contacted him earlier!

My husband's lawnmower broke down and Jose and his team responded the same day. They gave me a good quote to do my lawn. They were so fast and did such a great job, I hired them to do some landscaping too. That was a great decision because they are now my landscaping go-to gurus. My lawn is well manicured and I am definitely going to hire them again.

It was a pleasure working with Worldgreen landscapes. We communicated strictly through the thumbtack app. Worldgreen was responsive, performed the massive amount of spring cleaning yard work and my yard looks fabulous. they did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. Awesome job with grass cutting, weeding, and hauling debris.

This company is awesome! The value is amazing and the finished product is too. They were responsive, prompt, professional and thorough. We are realtors with Agile Home Team, an EXP realty group and plan on recommending them to everyone in the area when we list properties or as people reach out about improving their current spaces. We only had landscaping done this time but are awaiting an estimate on hardscaping next. I’ll update with photos after both are complete. Thank you guys!

Raphael was great to work with. I couldn't have asked for anything better. He said he'd be here at 8 and sure enough 8 on the dot he was here. I was so surprised at how much him and his partner were able to get done. He even helped with some last minute items that the wife asked me to get completed. They were able get 3 different gardens removed, trim a fence line, and remove 2 small trees within 3 hours. After they had gotten it all removed, they cleaned up my yard of all excess trimmings. If you're looking for some landscaping to be done, I highly suggest using Raphael. He did amazing work. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks so much Raphael!

After speaking with several landscapers, I chose NoDaysOff not because he had the cheapest quote but because he offered the most value for work. He was very professional walking me through everything he would do and providing a quote with pics that laid out exactly where he would be working. He did such a great job on what I initially wanted, I added additional work for him and he made me a great offer. My yard had some major drainage issues and I had a french drain installed which just added to the damage to the grass. As you can see from the pics, my yard was literally a mud hole but NodaysOff has completely transformed it and it looks amazing now. Thank you Edwin and your partner for all your hard work, I will definitely look to you again the next I have some to be done!
