Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does landscaping cost per square foot?

The cost of landscaping can vary widely based on the type of plants you wish to have, the amount of grading required, the condition of the land before work begins, and other factors. Adding in designer or high-end landscaping, as well as hardscaping such as sidewalks, walls, or patios will add to the cost. To find out how much your landscaping will cost, contact landscapers near you.

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.

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.

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.

How much does landscaping improve home value?

Landscaping your property can boost the value of your home between 5% and 15%, according to Better Homes & Gardens. They specify that this is the amount of value added when you upgrade the condition of your landscaping from poor to good, though these terms are subjective. 

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 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.

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.

KVA Landscaping did an outstanding job. I couldn't be happier with the results. Needed work on my backyard. They added sod to parts of my lawn that were bare and added seed and topsoil to my entire lawn. They also did work to my front yard at no extra charge. They arrived on time and we're very respectful to not only my family but my property as well. The price was very reasonable for the work that they did and didn't even charge me extra for additional work I asked for. Will definitely use them for future work I will need to have done and will highly recommend to friends and family. Thank you KVA Landscaping.

This was my 1st experience working with a landscape company After 3 years of inside home renovation, I decided to update the exterior to include front yard, primarily; and then decided to include backyard. Landscape work included brick work (walkway, patio and platform areas), tree trimming, driveway sealant, creating walkway, building play lot and playset assembly; and varied debris removal. I was impressed by photos, reviews and even conferred with a friend who works in construction management regarding the pricing aligning with the level of work detailed. All these factors and securing one company specializing in hard and soft scaping was the deciding factor in hiring this company. Thank you, Maurice, for addressing my concerns and taking the initiative to make things right. I look forward to your company returning to treat and repair my lawn.

I was out of the area when they mowed and disappointed to return and see the poor quality of their services. I have never experienced a professional lawn care service that did not use a mulching kit on their mower. These guys sprayed grass clippings into all of the mulch areas. That is how weed infestations begin in mulched areas. They also left grass all over the the vinyl siding of my home and the garage door was nearly covered completely with grass clippings. In multiple areas, they also allowed their mower to bottom out and the blade to impact the ground causing three large patches of minimal grass that will likely die and slowly regrow. Three of my trees were smashed into with their mower, damaging the bark. They also did not weed eat around all of the areas they should. Overall, I am not happy with this service and we will find another landscaping company to help in the future. If they used a mulching kit (or mowed the opposite path to avoid spraying grass clippings in the mulch and on the house) it might have been a better review. I sent him a text explaining my disappointments and he flat ignored it. Not great and definitely can improve!

This is the best app that I have found to actually have the best pros around. I couldn’t be happier! I was able to find this wonderful man and his company to assist in a very difficult and dirty situation for us. I originally contacted Miguel to get a quote for my townhouse’s backyard. What was once a lawn filled with weeds had become a dirt lot with my dogs running around back there. When I reached out to Miguel, I wanted a quote to remove one garden box and place artificial grass in place of sod. We were so impressed with Miguel’s professionalism that We decided to have him landscape the front yard as well. We couldn’t be any happier! He brought 3 workers on a Friday at 8:30am and they completed the projects before 3:00pm. This was so impressive due to the amount of grass, dirt, bushes and 2x4’s that they had to remove. They also had to lay the proper materials down before they placed the turf in the backyard and sod in front. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Miguel and his crew again. He’s also a very kind person and accepts many forms of payment.

These guys are going to have an amazing business future . They have all of the qualities that is so difficult to find when looking for someone to do this type of work . I own a Large property Management company in Myrtle Beach Sc and I had to drive up for one day to manassas Virginia from Myrtle beach SC. I needed several things completed at my mother in laws property and this guy did it all for a great value . I had to trust him to get it all done because I had to come beach to SC so we texted a lot . He also had to trust me to receive a check after the job was completed which there was no issues there on either end . This guy is motivate , hard working and very punctual and professional . Owning a Management company , I really know how hard it is to depend on a vendor when you hire them for a job . Believe me I have been through several . I would recommend H&J to anyone looking for yard work , pressure washing , landscaping or any other tasks you have that needs to be done. Send me a message on Facebook at MATCH PROPERTY MANAGERS and I will be more then happy to give you additional details . I do suggest you hire this company because you will not regret the work and professionalism . If I could give 20 star I would just because some companies just deserve way more then we are able to give . Thank you for the amazing job and dealing with my mother in law in such a professional And respectful manner . I would hire you full time to run my maintainece department if you lived in Myrtle beach . Thanks buddy
