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.

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.

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 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.

Adias and his crew did an amazing job. The project was over burdened with old growth and boulders inbedded into the slope where is now a retaining wall. I HIGHLY recommend G&E for your hardscape and landscaping needs!

Jesus and Arcadio were fantastic to work with for our front yard renovation. We were impressed with their attention to detail and efficiency. Communication was frequent and they happily answered any of our questions. While we were working off a specific landscape design, we made a few tweaks and they seamlessly worked in our changes. They also sent photos from the suppliers to ensure the rocks, mulch, etc matched our expectations. The modifications they suggested for our yard (e.g. modifying drainage) were logical and appropriate; I never felt like they were suggesting something that would be a waste of funds. We are really happy with the results and have every intention of hiring them for our next phase of landscaping.

Polo helped us install new sod, cut Branches from a huge pine tree to bring in more light, plant a bunch of plants and trees, and install landscaping pavers. It was a complete redo. Working with Polo was great. He has an excellent attitude, is very patient and helpful, and is very reasonable on pricing. Looking forward to doing more projects with his team.

Audias (Polo) and his team were very professional and helpful in providing me an estimate for the "artificial turf installation" on my backyard. The job was completed sooner than the promised date of completion which includes prepping and retaining wall installation. I have an awesome experience working with Audias and his team. Audias is very good in communicating with the updates of the project. I am very satisfied with the work done by this company. Thank you G&E Landscape LLC for the job well done!

Victor and his crew at All Season Landscape are the real deal! These guys went waaaaaay ABOVE and beyond what was required of them. I needed quite a bit of Arborvitae Privacy Trees planted in my backyard and unfortunately they did not have the correct remaining quantities at Costco. So, Victor went to 3 separate locations with me (all significantly spaced apart) to pick up the correct quantities. He did so *without a single complaint!* They did an excellent job planting the trees for an amazing price and I will gladly have them back to assist with some other projects.

We hired Paradise Landscaping to help us with storm/winter cleanup. They were punctual, knowledgeable, and thorough. These guys worked their butts off!! We have about 5/8acre and a lot of cedar trees. They did an incredible job cleaning, pruning, tidying up the yard and weeding. They cut down and pulled out the blackberries from the base, and untangled them from all of the plants they were choking. We had SO many! They also taught us about the plants in our yard, and how to prune them back so they’ll flower/grow out nicer. But when I was noticeably unsure, they were never pushy. They cleaned up a LOT of yard waste.I think these guys filled the truck up three times to the dump. Pricing was reasonable, they were great on communication, punctual, hard working and nownour yard looks pretty amazing!! Now we are considering monthly maintenance with them and other projects. Would highly recommend!

I'm so grateful that Sheldon Gray responded to my call for help on my urgent landscaping project! I needed work done right away and the crew worked their tails off building a parking area on the side of my driveway with a wall to hold the hillside back. Sheldon and his crew all have an incredible work ethic and know what they're doing. It was a pleasure to do business with all of the guys working on my paver project. Such a wonderfully refreshing can-do attitude, even though my project was fraught with pitfalls (such as enormous tree roots with the old phone line literally grown into it and other utility lines very close to the working area, plus working around the unsightly utility boxes). They arrived when they said they would and worked until dark, literally! The end result, using the higher quality paver blocks that Sheldon recommended, is a real asset to the look of my property. I truly appreciated their suggestions to solve my RV parking issues. I never imagined it could get so complicated, but they were up to every challenge and dealt with it professionally and proficiently---still smiling---as am I!! It looks BEAUTIFUL!!
