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.

David came over to the home and promised to get back with a quote. During the meeting he was condescending and defensive when I mentioned that his estimates were significantly higher than some other bids He fits the pattern of landscaping guys who either don’t show or fail to submit a quote after visiting the property.

We love the work that Nayel and his team did! From the start Nayel was very responsive and quick to get our project started. He listened to our requests and stayed within our budget. We had them patch up areas in our front yard and essentially “gutted” our backyard and started from scratch to lay new sod. Our backyard slips downward towards the fence line and they were able to lay more soul and level out the yard. It has transformed our backyard which is actually useable now and seems almost twice as large. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with their work and we’ve had multiple friends and family members say they can’t believe how good it looks!! I cannot say enough good things about Nayel and his team (which btw I think is mostly family) and we would recommend them to anyone. Since this initial project we’ve hired them on to do more landscaping and lawn care on an ongoing basis. If you choose Nayel and his team to do some yard work/landscaping you won’t regret it!! I wish I had a before photo of what our yard looked like so it would reflect how drastically it has improved!

Chris was great to meet with. He came out on the day we scheduled even though the weather wasn't ideal. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and gave me great advice on how to get my job done the cheapest (like hiring him for certain parts of the job, teaching me how to do some things myself, and recommending I use my inexpensive lawn crew to take care of the menial labor jobs instead of his crew that would be better suited for the specific planting/landscaping parts). Worth the time and money for sure, I got a lot of good info and ideas from him - Highly Recommend!

David was very easy to work with. He made suggestions but listened to my ideas and we worked out a plan together. He also was able to fix and adjust existing sprinkler heads, add drainage and made me a beautiful backyard landscape. Would highly recommend him. Is he the cheapest? No. Is he the most expensive? No Is he honest, hardworking and actually LISTENS to what your vision is? YES! He was always on time, didn’t go over his bid, very positive and easy going person. In the photos attached: he worked out a bed plan and installed amended soil, designed bed around water feature (bought at Jackson’s Home and Garden) Planted the agreed upon trees and shrubs (color will be added when warmer weather comes, in front of fountain and in front of other bed). He installed a trellis for the Jasmine vine and installed the grass. In addition, he added drainage where needed and moved and adjusted sprinkler heads where needed.
