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.

We hired this company to do some last minute landscaping to get our home ready to sell. We contacted them after the original landscaper bailed on me right before he was due to be at our house. These guys showed, took care of everything, removed all the garden debris, and made our yard look great!

Hiring All Season Landscaping to update my yard was the best decision I made. I needed a cleanup of my backyard and an update to the front. After talking to Alexander about what I wanted to accomplish in my space, he provided an incredible landscape design. Alexander's vision encompassed everything I wanted. The drawings he provided gave me an excellent idea of what my yard would look like. His ideas for my yard created a space that is peaceful and relaxing. His crew did an exceptional job cleaning up the backyard and making the front look spectacular. They were polite, professional and made sure they cleaned up everything before they left for the day. I am extremely pleased with the way my yard has turned out. I would highly recommend All Season Landscaping, their work is exceptional!

From the first time I chatted with Julio till the last time I met him after the project to give the final check, one thing that was outstanding with him is his responsiveness. He is always available to answer any question or discussion with a single text message. This made the entire project so seamless for me. We had a decent sized landscaping project to install a drain system + retaining wall + level out the sloped land with organic soil to use it for growing plant beds. When I started, I obviously do not know all the details about the work but on our very first meeting, Julio went through the work that will be done as part of the project and very patiently explained the reasoning behind every detail. He also encouraged me to talk to few other contractors about it and very professionally asked to contact him back if I find him best, which I definitely did. Overall, Julio helped me with a much awaited backyard landscaping renovation and I will be definitely contacting him for all my future landscaping projects. Thanks Julio!

We took a gamble choosing L&S Landscaping. There were only 2 online reviews to their name at the time. Still, upon meeting Santiago and Liborio, I saw honest and hardworking individuals who came back multiple times to the house to answer my questions on replacing a retaining wall and fence. I had a good feeling about L&S and their bid was great value without over promising on the results. We compared it to several experienced landscapers but still opted for this new team because they were punctual, responsive and above all accountable even before the contract was signed. As for the results, they delivered. Even exceeded my expectations. I knew they were legit when they drove the bobcat/mini-excavator into my backyard to reposition some boulders. Didn't expect that my small retaining wall would require heavy machinery. Upon conclusion of the job, their team said they will be back in the spring to reseed the whole lawn even though that wasn't in the contract - again love the professionalism and attention to detail. Most others would just leave the job site as-is and count their money. Not these guys. L&S Landscaping take a bow. We would happily endorse you for future projects.

Please be aware that Transblue provides bids and then subs the work out. They don't tell you this and it is far cheaper to just hire direct. Their bid on materials was outrageous too. I even spoke to subs they have used. You are paying for simple "project management" which you don't need for residential landscaping. Don't be fooled.

Polo and his crew are wondeful. They arrived as promised, did the work quickly and as promised. We are please with the way it tunred out, here are some before and after pictures. From the start Polo was very responsive, he was accomodating and listening to what change we are looking for to. I do most of the project on my own but wanted a pro to do this one and I lay back. I'm very happy with my desicion and selection of contractor I didn't have to do or explain anything Polo took care for all so professionally, he also helped me with cleaning and getting rid of some of the junk from my backyard, will do business with him the future and happy to recommend him to anyone here looking for hardscaping landscaping job
