Landscaping Costs Overview
What’s Your Budget?
When considering the budget for your landscaping project remember that investing in the outdoor environment of your home appreciates the value of your property beyond just greater enjoyment and use for the occupants and guests. Here are some examples of why investing in your landscape design is a wise decision:
- The National Association of Realtors’ 2018 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features found that the top two outdoor residential features that appeal to buyers include standard lawn care service and landscape maintenance.

- If investing even a mere 5% of your home’s worth seems steep, consider this example: “For a $500,000 home, on which you spend $25,000 to spruce it up, even a modest gain of 7.5% at reappraisal would mean a return of $12,500 beyond your investment.” – Source: SmartMoney Magazine

Here are some very general landscaping costs we’ve encountered for projects in the Grand Rapids, MI area.
Landscape Install & Renovation Estimates
This is typically for a smaller-sized property or just the front or back of a normal-sized yard. Most landscape re-design and renovations generally have a price range of $2,500-$6,000. The projects in this price range typically take one (1) to two (2) days to install.
Larger Landscape Install & Renovation Costs
This is typical for a full landscape re-design or landscape renovation (front & back) of a normal to a large-sized yard. These projects generally have a price range of $8,000- $16,000. The projects in this price range typically take three to seven days to install.
Cost Estimates for Paver Sidewalks & Patios
Range in size, shape, and features. A brick paver patio that is ground level might range from $3,000 to $11,000 depending on access to the site, paver style and any other features a homeowner requests.
Brick paver sidewalks installed as part of a total landscape renovation project can be a less expensive portion of the total project than just installing the sidewalk alone. A typical budget for a new paver sidewalk would range from $3,500 to $6,500 depending on a number of variables and features desired.
