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.

After getting concrete work done, I called Rossuja for landscaping work to sod up areas as well as fix the flower bed up front, doing sprinkler repairs. He was very professional and responsive, did the work diligently paying attention to details and ensured I was satisfied. I would recommend him highly for your next landscaping work!

I used their services for a full lawn mowing. They did very well to the degree that I will be hiring them for bigger landscaping jobs. I’m looking forward to seeing what my entire lawn will look like and a few weeks/months!

I called Fidel last week about some landscape work, and he came out that same day for an estimate. Within a week all of the work was done exactly as he had promised. He does quality work, works very efficiently, and is competitively priced. I will use him again and would recommend him to others

This provider strung me along from Sunday through Wednesday night continuing to say he would show up which prevented us from hiring a legitimate landscaping company to get the work done. Do not use this him (or his “company”). Jonathan will make guarantees that he will not keep and leave you with an overgrown yard. Go on Nextdoor and find a local 14 year old looking for a few bucks and have him cut your yard.

Fidel Hernandez is an excellent professional. He reviewed several options to fix the yard drainage. Finally reviewing all options, he fixed with perforated French drain system. He and his crew was exceptional in customer service and workmanship. He is thorough and meticulous in his work, listens to our questions and takes care of them with respect. He patiently answered all our questions without getting annoyed throughout the course of the work. He values his work with great pride. He strives to be the best in his work. I am very impressed! He has excellent work ethic. He did place good material and completed job. He made sure to keep my yard clean after the job was done. He doesn’t hesitate to follow up if needed. Above all, he is honest and I would recommend him any day for landscaping and drain systems.

We met Angie, Fidel and received a very fair quote on the landscaping and fence work that needed to get done. We were very happy with the way things looked compared to the way they did previously and overlooked a few mishaps. After a couple of weeks, we decided to contact Fidel back to get additional quotes for my in law's new, very large fence project, and additional bids for neighbors that really liked his work. We made several attempts to meet back with him, carving time out of our schedule over and over, however there was cancellation after cancellation from Fidel. Once he was finally able to make the appointment he came through and resolved all discrepancies. We were not happy that our time was not taken with high regard. However we understand that Fidel is a great person and with his very fair pricing stays busy helping a large amount of families and businesses throughout all of the DFW area. I would definitely recommend Fidel to all my friends, family and anyone that is looking to work with someone that's very friendly, down to earth, passionate and most importantly provides great, honest hard work. Thanks so much Fidel.
