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.

Just under 5000 ft2 tear out old, install new sod. Lots of hard work, good way to go. Tall fescue, gotta keep it watered (landscapers don't do that), results look great.

We bought a house with landscaping that was a bit beyond us to maintain. It got away from us, but now it's back to beautiful. Awesome job doesn't even begin to cover it and we've hired them for a bi-weekly service to keep it up :)

My husband and I were very impressed with the service we received from L & L. Our yard had tons of leaves and other debris to be raked and taken away. We have hired other landscapers over the years but L & L is the best.

Cristino was great to work with. He responded quickly and provided an in-home estimate to plant some arborvitae trees and do some tree trimming. Once services were agreed he arrived next day to complete the work. He arrived on time and communicated regularly. He was friendly and professional. I will be utilizing Cristino for any future landscaping needs.

Dan did an incredible job with our backyard. He was very professional and made sure that I got exactly what I wanted. We met prior to the job starting and went over everything. He had some great ideas to make our backyard look even better. His crew was very professional and made sure that everything was cleaned up once finished. I would recommend lawn care by Dan to anyone looking to landscape their yard.

Juan and his team did a fantastic job on my backyard project! I've tried several times to DIY, but finally called in the professionals. They provided me price quotes for all the materials I wanted to review with no questions asked. On the initial consult/quote visit, they brought pictures of previous projects and a booklet of materials to look at, offered suggestions and very honest throughout the whole experience. The company that supplied the pavers provided a few broken ones, but Juan was able to track the same materials down and replace them all within the same weekend of the project. Installing patio pavers, gravel, stepping stones and a triple layer retaining wall took only 2 days! Very impressed, within budget and definitely recommend for any landscaping project!

We hired Dan to install sod in our yard. He responded quickly and was extremely patient with me since I had so much going on and didn't respond to him right away. When he came by he walked through what he thought would be best for our particular yard. We get a lot of shade and needed something that would do well in these conditions. He recommended fescue and then was able to fit us in the very next week. He gave us a timeline of about 3 days, but him and his team were able to do it in 2 days. He came on the third day just to walk us through how to take care of the new lawn. It looks amazing already and they just put it in. Not only that, his team even fixed up some of our landscaping (straightening bricks, aligning our sprinklers, and little things like that) and it just looks awesome now. I can't recommend Dan and his team enough. I would definitely use Dan and his team for future projects!

We had a large job that they bid on. It turned out to be bigger than they expected. He started saying that the yard debris dump changed more than expected and started saying that to finish the job they needed to come back the next day and they did. They took one more load and said that they would come back next week after saying that it would be more money. They didn't. They did do alot of work. But the job was bid with a lot of work. They mowed yhe lown very tall. (We just moved in so they didn't realize that we have a ridings lawn mower and have 21+ years of experience with large landscaped yards). They mowed it long. Used the weed eater instead of pulling and was constantly trying to up sale. I withheld a portion of the pay the first day to make sure that they came back. I don't believe that they would have if I didn't. And then gave some reason why they had to do the rest later. My bad for giving them the rest of the pay. There bad for under bidding the job, not finishing and coming up with reason they had to come back. A reminder, never pay a contractor more than half before the job is done and get word out of mouth referrals. The worst part is that I gave them 40$ tips on to of the pay and beer. Not good business gentlemen. Good luck continuing for long with practices like this.
