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.

Lone Star Landscaping did an excellent job with major overhaul of our front and back yards. Would highly recommend them for premium landscaping projects at reasonable price. Mike was very communicative via text, and responsive to all inquiries. He was committed to doing the job well, and that we loved the results, which we do! Mike's crew did excellent work on hardscape, concrete driveway extensions with decorative overlay, sod, irrigation, and softscape install. We were confident given Lone Star's other work, and we are now Lone Star Landscaping fans. Glad to support local companies like Lone Star, who do tremendous work and are easy to work.

No show on day of appoint and no communication. Seems to be a pattern from other reviews. I am sure their work is good, but landscapers are a dime a dozen and poor customer service is detrimental.

After researching many landscapers, we choose Lone Star Lawn Care & Services for our backyard project and we are so glad we did. They were able to cover work on both masonry and grass/beds at a very competitive rate. Mike and his team took pride in their work, cleaned up professionally every day, and communicated frequently...even as the project spanned into the onset of COVID. All that to say, we would highly recommend them if you are looking for a landscaper!

Basabe Landscaping did an amazing job on our yard, we could not be more pleased. He went above and beyond and provided the very best quality of work. Francisco took the time to effectively and efficiently service our yard and overgrown trees and bushes. The area was mowed to the perfect height, and the edging looked perfect. The entire area was cleaned of any grass clippings- he even took several bags filled with branches and leaves that we had cleaned up the week before. He was extremely responsive and provided great affordable pricing on his services. We HIGHLY recommend Basabe Landscaping and we will be using their services once again in the future.

My wife and I had planned a major landscape project for our backyard for several years. We had retained a Landscape Architect for the project and were in the process of obtaining competitive bids when we met Mike James. After thorough study of the blueprints Mike brought up several issues with the plan and was very careful to point out these issues that to this point no one else had seen, not even the architect. Mike was extremely professional and explained our options in layman’s terms that we could easily understand to make an informed decision. We had one more bid left when my wife and I decided on the spot to let the contract to Mike. Even if he hadn’t been the low bid, which he was, we would have chosen his company to complete the project. We never regretted our choice. Mike and his crew were efficient and timely in completing the project. I can recommend Mike without reservation and certainly if we were to undertake any other landscaping projects he would be our first choice. Do yourself a favor and whether it is a residential project or business you really should give Mike a chance to bid on the job. You will be glad you did.

The initial coordination of the project was a bit tough to get through. I am a novice landscaper and was in need of a lot of guidance that I don’t feel I received. Although when the gentlemen arrived to start the work, they were nothing but cheery, professional and fast! They were very thorough and made sure I understood the process and was fully satisfied before they left for the day!

Hired them to put an addition onto our patio which included a raised cement slab and an extension to our aggregate pool surround. The aggregate can be difficult and the first couple rounds didn’t set right but he was very responsive and made sure to get the job done right and on time. His priority was customer satisfaction. Calling him back in the spring to create some flowered beds and do some additional landscaping.

We moved into our new home in October and like many new homes, the landscaping was BORING and very basic. Mike and his team transformed our backyard from an empty, lackluster, weed filled space to a beautiful rustic xeriscape. We were so pleased, before that project was completed, we added on the front yard. Mike was great to work with in every way - professional, hardworking, friendly and attentive. We would hire him again and have already shared his name and number with several neighbors. We highly recommend Lone Star Lawn Care and Services - 5 stars for Lone Star!!!

Services from Oscar started off good. However, recent “unpleasant” experiences is what prompted the rating of “3” and this review comment. The frustration started with me repeatedly asking him to cut my grass even after I requested bi-weekly services. The most recent unpleasant experience occurred during services provided by Oscar on 9/11/2020. Prior to this visit, Oscar would always remove cut grass from the curbside. However, during this particular visit, I didn’t notice the cut grass left on the curbside until after he left. When I brought this to Oscar’s attention the same day and asked him to return to remove the cut grass on the curbside, he responded “I’m sorry, I can’t go back. If had time I would but I can’t right now, all I can say it that I will make sure that doesn’t happen again. “ Ten days later, he sent me an invoice for the full payment. When I explained to him that the payment should be reduced due to not removing the cut grass during the last visit, he responded that he is charging me less than he does for other lawns of similar size, that he would be increasing the rate by $20 effective immediately, and demanded that I pay him the regular agreed upon rate for the last visit in which he did not remove the cut grass from the curbside. I reminded Oscar that we agreed upon the rate due to additional lawncare and landscaping business he would receive from me, which occurred. I told him that he was handling the matter unprofessionally, and that if a professional and honest business owner received notification from his client that an agreed upon service wasn’t executed accurately, they would make it right and not respond as he did. I even suggested alternate ways of handling the matter, such as returning on a later date to correct the issue or discount the service for that visit. After going back and forth with Oscar regarding this matter and realizing the mediocre service I had received from him up to that point, I told Oscar that it was time to severe business dealings with him. If you plan to hire Oscar for any services, I recommend that you request a detailed service agreement from him that meets your expectations, to include the rate and frequency of the services (e.g. weekly, bi-weekly, etc.).
