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.

Miguel did a beautiful job on our landscaping! He built a retaining wall, laid sod, planted bushes, and redesigned beds. He cleaned up everything when he was finished and hauled away yard waste.

Initial contact was prompt, as was initial visit for estimate. Discussion of project was gratifying, as was meeting team at store location closest to my home to select landscaping stones. Team arrived promptly and worked almost ten hours straight with time for their lunch breaks, even neighbors watching were impressed with their work ethic and quality and efficiency with which the job was performed and completed. It was a big job, involving regrading front lawn and two beds, and placing retaining walls, which was beautifully and artistically done. There was clear communication throughout the day if questions or concerns were raised. One small glitch was encountered and remedied immediately, with the team deciding to complete the job that evening rather than return another day. The price was fair and competitive. I would strongly recommend Liberty Landscaping.

Mike came out and did a great job cleaning up the landscaping in time for a party I was planning. He is thorough and gets bonus points for being an HONEST guy. I didn't remember paying by cash and then called and emailed him for a bill. (I had so much going on that day.) Without hesitation he told me I had already paid him. Thank God for hardworking, honest people! And thanks, Mike, for a doing a good job with a short notice!

I am so completely thrilled with my entire experience using Liberty Landscaping! They were immediately responsive, came for an in person quote same day, and got the job done same week. The day of the job, they were punctual and efficient, thoroughly completing a significant backyard clean up job in half the time I expected! They even went above and beyond the job by cleaning around the sides and front of the yard too. I highly, highly recommend this company for all your yard needs!

We had a family project to revamp my grandmother’s flower beds how she always wanted them. We tried to use another company but they failed us. So we needed help immediately to get 33 flowers planted that had been sitting in the garage for 2 days. Thanks to this app, I found Liberty Landscape. They came out today, looked at the project, gave an estimate and FINISHED the job before sun down. Amazing people. Amazing job! Would definitely recommend this company to anyone as well as have them come to maintenance our new flower beds.

I was in desperate need to get my front yard and flower beds fixed up before summer. Due to time constraints and health issues I had let it get overgrown and out of hand and I was not going to be able to do it myself. Bill came and checked out my yard and a week later (4/21/20) he arrived on time and completed the job. Due to the current pandemic there was very minimal need for in person contact. Bill completed the job exactly as discussed and cleaned up afterwards. Cost was very competitive! He does not have much of a history on this site but he is certainly 5 star worthy. Thanks JBA Landscaping.

The quality of Joe's landscaping work was great; he did a good job on removing some old foliage and reseeding/evening out my yard. That said, his communication wasn't great and his timing caused some minor problems. I had initially requested in late May that he provide his availability the week of June 5th, with the goal of giving myself a couple weeks to move some plants myself, but on May 25 he texted to inform me that he had stopped by my house that morning and completed the job, which was a surprise and much earlier than I had requested. He removed some of the plants that I had intended to keep and I had to ask for them back, which he did accommodate. The end result worked out fortunately, but ensure that you clearly verify and confirm your timing and project requirements with this individual before hiring.

Started with the contractor cutting the grass. Called and texted me three or four times about the address, the job etc, seemed confused and actually had me confused with another client. He finally got the grass cut and did a fine job there, so I asked him to quote me a landscaping job. He gave me a great price, we agreed on scope. The day his guys are scheduled to start, he calls and says the price needed to increase because he didnt realize the size of the job!! Isnt that YOUR job when you give me a bid?!?! I reluctantly agreed because I was on a timeline, the price was still decent. The next day this guy calls me and says he is pulling out of the job because he isnt going to make any money. I am headed to my property now, if its half done, there will be a lawyer involved. Stay away at all cost!!!

I am not in the habit of reviewing a company BEFORE the work is done (and I shall certainly review again once the work is done), but Jake's professionalism and courtesy are remarkable. He was very accommodating to our schedule, he showed up when he said he would, he he was professional and pleasant, and he was quite helpful in working with us to decide what to do with the yard, and we cannot wait to post the pictures of what will, no doubt, be impeccable work. Stay tuned... UPDATE: It turns out that my first impression was correct...even better than I could have hoped, in fact. Jake kept excellent communication with me while we were planning the project. My work hours are crazy, so he had to do some careful time management to fit me in. He worked with my ridiculous schedule, and was able to arrange a time convenient for me. Once we settled on a plan of action, Jake took care of everything! He let me know before he was going to arrive. He showed up exactly when he said he would. He started work immediately! Throughout the project, Jake checked in with me periodically to ensure that I was satisfied with the progress, and he even took the time to offer suggestions I had not thought of to improve the landscape. He worked quickly, efficiently, and professionally. When he was done with the yard, I was at a loss of words to describe the work! I think I said "wow" about a dozen times. It doesn't even look like the same yard! His price was MORE than reasonable, and I really could not be happier with the work or with the experience. In this era of increasingly poor work ethic and corner-cutting, it is nice to know that there is at least one company I can rely on for professionalism, thoroughness, quality, and COURTESY. If you a beautiful yard at a great price (and great customer service to boot), DEFINITELY call Jake!
