Cost of Landscaping Services

Pricing landscape services is not an exact science. Are square foot pricing models accurate?

Similar to new home construction, the landscaping industry also has median standards and metrics of square foot installation costs that can be used as a guideline. But, unlike new home construction, there are variables in landscape construction that can affect the cost significantly.

Using square foot installation pricing can be tricky business. Many landscape contractors assume “installation” means excavation and base preparation is all included. How can installing a retaining wall around ledge be the same as digging out a base for a retaining wall on sand? There is a wide range of concrete retaining block products available on the market today. The prices of landscape block can vary as much as 60%, depending on the type of block you choose.

Another factor that affects the cost of landscape installation projects is the site itself. Not all the land here is flat! It may not be accessible with equipment that will make the project more efficient. Staging and scheduling the delivery of gravels and other materials in smaller quantities may be necessary on a smaller work site.

At Groundhog Landscaping we have never been shy about revealing our pricing. We are confident that the prices for patio installation and building retaining walls of stone or concrete are the best around. We can provide square-foot estimate quotes for budgetary purposes, however these are not complete costs. Most of the time we find our landscape construction pricing falls within them, but we will never give you a fixed price over the phone.
