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 highly recommend Green Landscape. They did an outstanding job removing old shrubs, cleaning flower beds, and designing new landscaping for me. They were very attentive to my needs and the price was very reasonable. I will continue using Green Landscape and Maintenance.

David is a straight up guy. Does top notch work, and he worked with me on doing two payments for the project. He is highly recommended. I just used him for lawn/sod work, and will be using him again for a small landscape project to blend in with the lawn.

The process was easy and the job was scheduled quickly. They did a great job with old plant removal and new planting as well as tweaking my sprinkler system for adequate water coverage. Also added a brick border to eliminate erosion problem. My new bed looks so much better. Green Landscape was professional, courteous, efficient, and reasonable. I will use them again.

Constantine did a great job with very little direction. He fixed my ugly landscaping and was very detail-oriented in his lawn maintenance. Update: I pre-paid addition services after our first engagement in June. Despite repeated reminder texts, he still has not done the work now in mid-August. I think my money is lost for good. I am very upset as he did a great job on the first service call.

Due to extensive foundation and plumbing repairs my entire back lawn and portions of my front lawn were ruined. Most of the bids I received for sod replacement were budget busters. However, Xscaping submitted a budget friendly bid, which allowed room for me to add additional landscaping to the scope of the project. What started out as a simple goal of re-sodding turned into an overall refresh of the lawn, garden and pool areas. On a side note, as a homeowner it can be difficult to find trade professionals that you can build a relationship with for future repairs & improvements. Nicolas and his crew were friendly, helpful and highly skilled. I'm happy to say that I no longer worry about who to hire for future projects. Thanks Xscaping!

They installed grass sod in nov 2018. Their attitude was great, however, their lack of experience and poor work quality is costing me thousands of dollars 7 months later. I have the following issues with the work they did (1) They did not properly level/grade the land before sod installation. The result is an extremely bumpy backyard/front yard and lots of uneven surfaces that cannot be fixed by topsoil dressing alone and it looks very ugly (2)They also left big gaps between sod squares (up to 3-4 inches wide), as a result the grass is dying around the edges and weeds are growing between the gaps. (3) they didn’t remove the weeds/old grass underneath and laid the sod on top of weed/old grass. 3 different landscapers have confirmed my worst fears, entire area needs to be cleared of grass, land needs to be leveled/graded and new sod needs to be installed all over again. That’s a very costly repair.
