Landscaping CostInformation about landscaping prices & ideas for saving money
A landscaping project can cost anywhere from $5,000 to over $100,000. When deciding on a budget keep in mind that investing in professional landscaping will greatly add to the value of your home. A general rule of thumb is to spend 10% of your home's value on landscaping. So, if you have a $400,000 house then a landscaping budget of $40,000 is appropriate.
Factors that Impact Landscaping Costs:
- The size of your yard
- The features you desire (i.e. patio, outdoor kitchen, pool, etc.)
- The materials and plants you select
- Where materials are sourced from
- Your location
- Local labor costs

Working with a professional landscaping company will help you understand what is possible within your budget. For example, a designer can show you three fireplaces at different price points—an affordable prefabricated model, a mid-range customizable kit and a high-end original design. Being upfront about what you want to spend will help your designer suggest features and materials in your cost range.
