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.

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.

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.

Ponce’s Landscaping did a great job trimming our tall shrubs. They were quick to respond and were able to do it within a couple of days of my request. I plan to use them again In the future for other landscaping work.

Oscar and his teammate were great. They verified exactly what we need w/r/t bushes, communicated very well, didn’t cut too much off the mature landscaping. They are second generation landscapers, and young, not kids though as a previous reviewer stated. Mature, respectful, hard working. Cleaned up very well. Recommend!

I am super satisfied with their work. I would highly recommend Mezcala Landscape to any one of my friends who need gardening work.

I had Ortiz Landscaping do a fall yard cleanup and I couldn’t be happier on how my yard looked and for a fair price! I’ll be using them again.

Did a great job clearing out pruning down the overgrown landscaping at our new home... and managed to spare all of the plants we actually wanted to keep. Looks so much better!

Whittaker Landscape did a fantastic job on our lawn. The leaves are gone, the grass is mowed, and the whole area looks neat and well cared for. We will certainly use them for all our lawn care needs in the future.

I needed someone to come do an initial cleanup on my yard (trimming trees/hedges, pulling weeds, cleaning leaves, etc.) and also I needed regular ongoing maintenance to keep the yard in good shape after the initial cleanup. I had several landscapers come over to give me bids, including 365 Landscaping. Most bids were similar and within a few hundred dollars of each other. 365 Landscaping was on the high end, but not crazy. 365 Landscape had the next availability for doing the initial cleanup so I went with them despite the higher price. I was not home at the time the initial cleanup was performed, so they sent me pictures of the yard. I wanted to give them half then and half after I saw it in person, but Edward pressured me to pay in full based on the pictures, so I Zelled the full payment directly to his personal account. I have a big yard with many trees and pictures don't capture everything from every angle, so when I went to look at the yard in person, I noticed that a few of the trees had been completely skipped and were not trimmed at all. Additionally, they had not cleaned up after themselves and left cut branches in my yard. I txted Edward that I was still interested in doing ongoing regular maintenance at the agreed upon price, but I wanted the initial cleanup done right. He completely ghosted me and I was never able to get in touch afterward. Instead of building a long-term customer relationship, he took the quick money and ran. Later, I tried to looking up the business, and not only are they not licensed (check https://secure.lni.wa.gov/verify/), there does not seem to exist any business called "365 Landscaping" in the state of Washington at all! No wonder, Edward had me pay his personal account, his business doesn't exist. TLDR: - Price was on the high end, but not too crazy - Quality is on the low end; they just skipped trimming certain trees and did not cleanup after themselves - Poor communication. They ghosted me after payment - They are *not* licensed and operating illegally. No business called "365 Landscaping" exists in the state of WA.

We hired Honor Landscaping to remove some old railroad timbers from our yard that were used as planter borders and replace them with stone pavers. Working with Ryan on the bid was easy and quick. He had ideas on how to change things a little to decrease the cost, and gave us options on the stones so we could pick style and color. The team showed up right on time and got through the job in just a few days. We ended up adding one more wall to complete a planter, and there were a few small things that needed to be cleaned up at the end. It was easy to communicate on the extra price and what needed to be done. We're very happy with their work, and would definitely hire Honor again for any future landscaping jobs!

Hired for an aeration and re-seeding project for a lawn with terrible clay. After using another Yelp five-star service twice, the other service could never deliver. Mezcala Landscape did! Grass is coming in after a couple of weeks and looks better than it ever did before. Really satisfied. Hired them to come regularly. :)

We had a wonderful experience working with Jose and team on the lawn clean up. Jose had arrived on time/ earlier for the assessment and he was very responsive and communicative throughout the process. His team also arrived on time for the work and the job was well done. I would highly recommend Jose and team for any landscaping work.

Misa and Julio have done an excellent job working with me on so many different projects. It started off with redoing some landscaping and we ended up using them for replacing the fence, building a new front porch, building a back porch, installing sprinklers, fixing a play set and creating a space and border ready for mulch, and redoing our back deck. We are very happy with what they have produced for us so far and am excited to see the rest of the projects once they are finished. They are a pleasure to work with and very professional.

We just did a complete remodel of our backyard. It was literally torn down to nothing and rebuilt. The job involved removing existing patio, cutting down a tree, clearing all the plants, removing steps, leveling the whole yard, building retaining walls, fence, gates, laying a fairly large patio area with pavers, building a fire pit area with flagstone, drainage, sprinklers and planting. I hired G&E based on the reviews on thumbtack and I couldn't agree more with some of the reviews about their professionalism. They are easily among the best contractors I have worked with. Reliability, Punctuality, Accountability, Flexibility, and Quality are some of the key qualities I was looking for and they fit it perfectly. We are very happy with how our yard turned out and it is better than what we have envisioned. I would definitely hire Polo and team again for any future work. If you are looking to get any landscaping work, don't think twice about G & E.
