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.

Sod and Stone Installation Frank's Landscaping did an excellent job trimming the hedges, installing St. Augustine sod, and cutting/installing stepping stones for my back yard landscaping project. It looks great! They did a very professional job for a reasonable price and had an attention to detail which I really appreciated. Frank returned my calls in a timely fashion and even returned to finish the job after I had paid him in full. Awesome! I would definitely recommend Frank's Landscaping to anyone needing any size landscaping project.

The stone work and landscaping was great both in quality and value. We also had them do some tree trimming which, in my opinion, they were not equipped to do. I will use them again for anything on the ground 😉.

We purchased our new home with a completely bare front yard that had major runoff and looked horrible! We were lucky enough to find xscaping on thumbtack to start our first project in the home, and we are so happy with the end result. Nicolas was professional, kind, honest and kept communication about install up to date since we had to postpone a week due to a lot of rain! He suggested we start with just sod, then gather ideas for landscaping. The next project is the actual landscape and CANT wait to work with Nicolas and Xscaping again. Highly recommend Xscaping!

Torres Landscaping installed some holly bushes in my yard the day after I called and after all my plants died in the stupid blizzard. They also trimmed a bunch of trees. Super fast and affordable, came when they said they would, didn’t leave a mess. Awesome.

Jr Landscaping did an excellent job at a reasonable price. They were very thorough and resolved our issues. They worked late into the afternoon to install our french drain and then our sod. Right after, we got heavy rain which was handled easily by the new drain. Thanks guys!

Very responsive before quote, had some issues afterwords. Not the most thorough. Left two less experienced guys to do the work. Never checked sprinklers prior install to avoid issues after sod install. Neve come back and repair sprinkler, even though he said he would. Hire another landscaper to fix sprinkler issue, no problem.

Matt did a great job of trimming my tree and shrubs. He event went above and beyond by fixing a problem with the large tree that had it under stress and fixing a landscaping light that had been damaged by my lawnmower. The thing that impressed me the most was how quiet they worked. They did not use large chain saws. I will definitely use him again.

My experience with Santamaria Irrigation Landscapes was excellent! And although, it has only been a few weeks since he worked on my front lawn, so far, I'm quite happy with the outcome; he has a fantastic crew -- both Rafael and his crew are quite knowledgeable, it gave/gives me tremendous comfort knowing I had people that knew what they were doing.

My wife had an image of what she wanted in her mind and with Jared's help and expertise we were able to get that and more. Jared knew what plants were needed to accomplish the goals my wife had envisioned and what would work in each location. I will not need to look anywhere else for any landscaping work we may have need of in the future. Thanks Jared.

David did an AMAZING job on my side yard! He suggested rock over mulch and I must admit it turned out beautifully! Not only is he talented in what he does, but he’s kind, easy to communicate with, very responsive and he and his crew are professional. I’d HIGHLY recommend David and will definitely use him for future landscape projects. Oh and I want to add that when the job was finished, they left the area cleaned up and all trash was disposed of! Impressed with everything!
