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.

Brimingstone workers were very personable and professional. They did a great job and were very careful in making the landscaping very neat and uniform. They provided very good advice and cleaned up before they left. I would hire them again because of the ease in doing business with them.

We had a great experience working with Ryan and his team. They laid down 5 pallets of sod, removed and cleaned up several bushes and even checked and repaired the sprinkler system in my back yard. It only took them about 5 hours and they were very professional the whole way through. Will be using them again for other landscaping projects in the future!

My husband and I were in the process of moving and needed some neglected trees/MASSIVE bushes (basically trees) trimmed and cut down. Charlie did an excellent job meeting our needs and budget. He was prompt with responding to our messages and worked diligently to get the project completed in a timely manner. He even worked in the 20 degree weather! We are very happy with the results and would recommend Cleaner Greens to anyone needing landscaping.

Landscape For Life and Irrigation designed (exactly to my specifications) a retaining wall around a tree on an eroding hill in my father's yard. Ismael and his crew were professional, considerate of the surrounding areas and worked very quickly! The wall only took one day. I was very impressed with their clean-up job too. The wall Ismael built is perfect! It's exactly what we wanted and it looks great. I'm taking him at his word that he'll come back in a while to add a little more dirt once the first layer has had time to settle. I trust Ismael and highly recommend him to everyone! UPDATE ON MY REVIEW: Ismael made good on his promise just like I knew he would. He came back and added topsoil to the original dirt that completely filled the space between the wall and the tree. Thanks, Ismael, for your good work and for your integrity!

We hired Santos to do a full front and backyard sod replacement along with tree trimming. The project was fairly large and Santos and his crew were extremely trustworthy, professional and provided top shelf quality work! Santos provides what I consider to be the Gold Standard experience that every customer will appreciate when spending their hard earned money. In addition, he provided step-by-step status updates, recommendations going forward, and has already provided courtesy follow ups to ensure our satisfaction. We had so much confidence in his ability and talent that we agreed to an additional stone work landscaping project that he suggested would increase our home's drive up appeal. At the end of the project, Santos confirmed our trust in him by providing projects result well beyond our expectations. He is 100% the "REAL DEAL". Santos is my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION for your project. Hire his team with confidence! He is the Gold Standard...
