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.

Supreme Tree and Landscape did a fantastic job on my yard! They were very punctual and professional. They provided great ideas (when I wasn't exactly sure how I wanted the landscaping to look). I highly recommend them and would/will definitely hire them again for future tree and landscape work.

JV Landscaping did a fabulous job. Initially, we had a couple issues with communication, but we learned that they had an emergency job and got to our home late. JV Landscaping worked quickly, left our yard in lovely shape (no trash or anything left), and did everything (and a little more) that we requested. We will definitely have them back in the future.

AFU Landscaping has been our choice each Spring and Fall to help us get ready to look trimmed and healthy for the Spring and prepared for the Fall. They do an excellent job of making the yard look top-notch, taking care of plants not wanted, extra projects like re-stoning a small waterfall (it turned out fantastic) They get the job done in good time. I am having another special project done and can't wait to see the creative and diligent side of AFU. You want a terrific job done? Reach out to AFU Landscaping. You will be satisfied.

Waterwise Landscaping was the second landscaper we hired after a horrible experience. Our yard was extremely overgrown with weeds as the previous owners did zero maintenance on the yard when we moved in. We hired the first landscaper who "weeded" everything but essentially they just weed whacked it all down not addressing any roots. When Waterwise Landscaping came out to give us an estimate, my biggest concern was if we were going to spend the money to install new grass I did not want to have to deal with weeds growing back. They assured us that they would till, treat, and add topsoil before they installed sod. After they began the work, I noticed they were not following through with the plan that had been discussed during the time of the estimate. They leveled everything but then threw sod on top, no topsoil, no treatment. Now we are here a little less than a year later and everything needs to be completely replaced. My biggest fear has come true and the weeds have grown through the grass. On top of this, the sod they installed turned muddy, and there are parts that you can still lift up, it never fully rooted. They did a great job with the sprinkler coverage and we were diligent about watering. After the work was completed knowing that they didn't treat I addressed this with the owner and he basically told me that there was "nothing they could do" about the weeds. They waited until the very end, took my money, and now I have to start from the very beginning. I'm so sad and disappointed. Don't waste your money.

I’ve been using flowers landscaping all summer for work on my various investment properties. The bad: I would like to have a better communication (like prompt response to email, when arrived, pics when finished, and a detailed invoice sent shortly after each job outlining work done and cost). The good: Adriana and her crew has been willing to go over the top to meet my needs, the quality of work has been top notch, and they have even swooped in to save the day when something urgent goes wrong. They are good at finding and diagnosing the true cause of the problem, and are quite capable of fixing everything we have come across so far regarding sprinklers, landscaping, and tree removal. They are humble and hard working, making them easy to work with. 5 out of 5 would recommend.
