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.

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.

Start contacting landscapers near you to get free estimates and start planning your project today.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Matthew definitely went above and beyond in helping my brother and me (who live in FL) surprise our sister (who lives in WA) with a landscaping project for Christmas and New Years. Because of a health issue, she had been unable to keep up her yard and Matson's Landscaping's meticulous care in cleaning out and reviving her vine-covered trees and bushes has literally given her a new outlook on life! Matthew's work ethic, timeliness, quality, value, communication and dedication is amazing. Highly recommended.

I submitted a request for a quote to mow, edge and trim my lawn last night and Dave, from A&D Landscape Services, responded immediately! He came to my house today and quoted a very reasonable price. He had his equipment with him and took care of my yard on the spot. You’ll notice right away that Dave is friendly, has a great sense of humor and is detailed with his work. If you are looking for a responsible person/business to take care of your landscape needs give him a try, you won’t regret it, I know I didn’t!

I would recommend AV for anyone looking for a landscaper. My front yard went from the worst looking in the neighborhood to the best in 2 days. They were also super competitive on their bid. I'll definitely be having them work on my backyard.

Hired Lucas landscaping to re-work and maintain gardens at a commercial building in Everett. They took care of everything, did what they said they would do, and go there every 2-weeks for maintenance and clean-up: and I do not have to worry about anything! Highly recommend.

Julio and his team created a patio made of pavers for us and it was a pleasure doing business with them. They promptly began and completed the job, and came up with a beautiful and affordable solution to an unexpected snag. (we needed to add a retaining wall) Julio and his team provided great customer service, good design ideas, and were very courteous on the job. The prices were by far the best around, and we got several quotes before ultimately deciding to go with Lucas Landscaping. We will be using them for all of our future landscaping needs. In fact, we're already planning to have them do a few more projects for us in the next couple months.

Aaron arrived on time to give me an estimate. His rates are very competitive and I was able to set up service very quickly. He arrived on time on the scheduled date and did a fantastic job. I am very happy with the service provided and would recommend AG Landscape.

I had a rather small project that involved removing the existing gravel and several tree stumps as well as installing artificial turf and a concrete pad. They were prompt, professional and great to work with. Most importantly, when an issue arose they worked things out to my satisfaction. I would not hesitate to use AV Landscaping again and highly recommend them.

I am so happy with the service from SuCasa. My elderly parents and I have been searching for a reliable landscape company that can maintain our sizable yard with no success until SuCasa. We are happy with the timeliness of scheduling for an estimate, the promptness of the estimate itself and the ease of scheduling their first visit. We are now on a monthly schedule. Great company to hire!

Not only did Brad and team did a FANTASTIC job with our yard clean up, but he is also super responsive, prices are competitive and he got us worked into his schedule within a couple days! We have several big tree's that surround our yard-which make for ALOT of leaves. Our yard is now leaf and debris free and is nice and clean. Next project is to restore the grass. Looking forward to working with Brad and Whittaker Landscaping again.

Julio and his team did a wonderful job. They ripped out plants I didn't want, set down 25 - 2' x 2' pavers in my front yard, planted 5 Evergreens for privacy, brought soil and mulch, and trimmed the hedge. I can easily say I have the nicest front yard in my entire complex. I plan to have more work done in the near future. Julio's a hardworking all around good guy that loves his craft and it shows. I will hire Julio and his team for all my future landscaping needs.

Santiago and team have been great since the time I reached out to them to completing our backyard landscaping project. It looks so nice now. They have been thorough with everything, very responsive and completed the project right before the snow. The patio paver, french drain, walkway and sod installation seems to be of good quality and I am looking forward to the summer to enjoy it. They have recommended and offered to do pending paver sealing work during the summer and have been responsive with queries I had after the installation. Time will tell about the durability of the work and quality of materials used. I will update the review accordingly but for now I am happy with the outcome.

Juan is phenomenal! He contacted me immediately, showed up the same day to give me an estimate, and started work the next day. In 3 days he and his crew totally transformed my jungle. They leveled and sodded my yard, rototilled my flower beds and added soil and mulch, planted flowers, built a gorgeous brick retaining wall, pulled blackberries, and even cleaned my driveway without being asked. He and his crew showed up on time, worked until 9PM, and hauled away all their debris. I can't praise Juan's Landscaping enough. If I could give 10 stars I would. I recommend him enthusiastically to anyone who is looking for an outdoor miracle. A+++
