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.

I tried Home Advisor and then Angie's List and got almost no response. Maybe that job was not in a market large enough to interest them. I then tried Thumbtack. I received almost immediate responses. The first came shortly after I posted the project, after midnight. The company said they would like to quote the job. I gave them the address and they said a quote would arrive soon. Instead of visiting the property, they used a Zillow aerial photograph to provide their quote. Along with the quote I received a copy of the Zillow photo. I immediately recognized that the property in the photo was not the address I had provided. They decided they wanted to argue with me about their mistake. I told them to visit the property in order to accurately quote the job. They said they would not do that. I declined their offer of service. Next came Juan Carlos owner of Palma Lawn and Landscaping. He said he would like to quote the job so I gave him the address. He went and looked at the job and

We had three trees in our yard that needed to be taken down, one of them a monster not more than 20 ft from our house. We contacted several tree removal companies, but decided to go with Rabbitt's. The reasons are as follows: 1) They responded quickly initially and continued to follow up in a timely manner throughout the entire process. 2) On their first meeting to give an estimate, they brought a copy of their liability insurance as part of the process, which we appreciated. (They were the only ones who did.) 3) All of the bids were fairly similar, but Rabbitt's was definately competitive. 4) Mike Rabbitt is a Certified Arborist and has done this work alk his life. About the process: This is a father and son operation and both are very likable people. On our initial estimate they arrived at the stated time, evaluated the situation, and answered all of our questions. We wanted to cut the wood ourselves for firewood and they worked with us to keep the cost down. They were very professional throughout, and were willing to customize the job to our specifications concerning where to stack the wood, what size to leave the wood, etc. We had a lot of landscaping around the biggest tree, not to mention the house. They were extremely mindful of where they dropped the limbs and tree trunks, so as to avoid hitting anything vital. The second largest tree was hanging over our chicken coop, and the third was extended out over our fence. Mike got them all down without a single mishap. We were very impressed with how adept he was at his craft. Additionally, while on the job Mike noticed a dead limb on a large oak tree overhanging our shed. He kindly offered to remove that limb while he was there. They did a great job of cleaning up afterwards and placing the wood and limbs where we had requested. A special shout out to Stephanie, Ryan's fiance, who worked tirelessly alongside the men. And also want to mention Chris, one of their crew. All of them worked very hard all day and into the evening to get the job completed. All in all, they made the entire process seamless and uneventful, which is what you want when taking down large trees. We would not hesitate to recommend this company and we will definately use them for any future needs.
