Kitty E. says, "Wow! After a ridiculous 3 months of remodeling and dealing with people that just didn’t seem to want to do the job for which they were hired, it was like a fresh breeze when Christina returned my call inquiring about her company’s services. We arranged to meet at the remodeled home for an estimate. What a colossal mess it was, construction debris, paint everywhere and so mush drywall dust that it was barely breathable. After sizing up the job, she said “We can do this.” I asked, “All of it?” She replied, “I’ll take care of you.” No doubt she did! It ended up being a 3-day job. Each day, Christina and her crew arrived at the door at the specified time, the crew came in, no foolin’ around, Christina gave her crew instructions, everyone went to it and no one quit until the work for the day was completed (and we threw in extra stuff but not on purpose, and still Christina said “We got this!”) What I experienced was a company that does not ‘blow smoke!’ If Christina says she’ll “take care of you” – it’s done! And as hard as I worked her and her crew, before leaving each day, they still asked me what else needed to be done. Ms. Angela and Ms. “G” were such a joy and a pleasure to work with. A Positive Two-Thumbs Waayy, Waayy UP experience all the way around!! "See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Nick was quick to respond, and had excellent insight and inputs regarding my project. He is very knowledgeable and personable. He went the extra mile to accommodate my tight schedule and his fees were very competitive. I would highly recommend Oak Landscape Management to anyone looking for landscaping.

John Paul did an excellent job shaping up my backyard after discussing with me what I envisioned. I couldn’t be happier with the results! From there we moved on to the front yard. He has excellent vision & work ethic. Will be hiring him for future landscaping projects. I highly recommend Stone & Oak Landscape.

Mike and his team are truly amazing. They had their work cut out for them with our property. Cleared all of the tree beds (so much), trimmed all of the trees (so much), mulched, installed the outdoor lighting. Mike explained in detail each stage of landscaping process. The attention to detail was incredible. We highly recommend using Leonard Landscaping and Lawn Care. Just the best.

Very responsive. We did not end up using Gregory, because a friend ended up doing the landscaping but he was easy to connect with and very quick to respond.

We had such a wonderful experience working with Damon from Curb Appeal Landscaping and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to enhance their yards! Damon was incredibly responsive throughout the whole landscape design process to our backyard and also very patient with our countless questions! The quality of the plants he provided and the quality of his work is far above expectations and we couldn't be happier with the results. We were also impressed with the routine check-ins he provided to ensure all the plants were doing well. We now enjoy the beauty of yard on a daily basis and are so appreciative of Damon and his expertise! Highly recommend Curb Appeal Landscaping!

THIS IS THE COMPANY TO HIRE! Responded quickly and was able to do an in-person quote that day. He was upfront and honest about what he recommend and why he recommended it. There was no push to up-sale unneeded services and his knowledge of landscaping and lawn care came across in an Professional, easygoing manner. The "spring cleaning" and planting work he did on my yard looks AMAZING. He even followed up to ensure everything was done to satisfaction. They have earned my future business, hands down.
