Do you want to create an outdoor space that coincides with your personality, your home’s architecture, and your family’s wants and needs? If the answer is yes, you have likely already started digging into what that will entail. Of course, one of your biggest concerns should be the cost. Today, we are going to explain how the cost to hire a landscaper in California works.
What Does it Cost?
As with any design project, there is no straight answer for this because every project is different. However, most professional companies expect that you will invest up to 7% of your property’s value in your landscaping. As a national average, Home Advisor estimates that a general landscape installation project will cost between $1,331-$5,646. Keep in mind that the average prices and cost of living in California are higher than in many other states, so you can expect this estimate to be a bit low. Therefore, the cost of a landscaper may higher than what you usually find online as an average.
How Should I Assess Prices?
Before choosing a landscaping company, you must first determine what it is you want to be done? If you are simply looking for someone to mow your lawn, you can likely find a local neighborhood kid to do it for cheap. However, if you are looking for landscape design, masonry, outdoor lighting, carpentry, or other skilled projects, you will need to hire a company specializing in that field.
We highly recommend that you speak with a few different companies and get quotes from each. Just remember, you get what you pay for, so don’t just go with the lowest or highest prices.
What Should You Expect of Landscape and Hardscape Companies?
Before even considering a company for your project, you want to verify that the company is fully licensed, bonded, and insured. Once that is verified, you can dig a little deeper into their business practices and the cost to hire a landscaper.
