Landscaping, like any home improvement project, can have a wide range of costs associated with the project depending on what is included in the scope of work. Most of our clients' residential landscaping projects in Winnipeg usually range in price from $25,000 to $100,000. If your budget does not allow for you to complete the project at one time, we do offer project phasing and our team of landscaping experts will work with you and your budget.
Projects that involve substantial amounts of hardscaping, which includes the use of pavers, slabs, brick edging, retaining walls, etc. will typically cost more to have installed than softscaping projects which focus more on the horticultural elements of landscape design such as sod, plants, and garden beds.
What is the process of project phasing?
Project phasing is the process of designing, planning, and constructing projects over the course of more than one season. If you do not have a large enough budget to complete your entire landscaping wish list at one time, please do not worry as this is very common.
We will work with you and your budget to strategically design a plan for your project which will include the suggested order that projects should be completed in to minimize how much future rework is required. Speak with one of our landscape consultants today to start planning your project.
We are going to do our best to break down some of the common landscaping costs that you can expect so you can make an informed decision when budgeting for your landscaping project.
How much does it cost to have sod installed?
Sod typically costs $3-5 per square foot to have installed but additional factors can increase the cost per square foot such as the amount of grading required, machine accessibility, and additional manual labor. To get the most accurate estimate for your sod installation, we would highly recommend getting in touch with one of our landscaping consultants who will come out to view your property and provide you with an accurate landscaping estimate for your landscaping project.
How much does it cost to have hardscaping installed?
As a Winnipeg resident, you know that we live in a freeze-thaw climate due to the wide fluctuation of temperature experienced throughout the year. This is particularly important when it comes to designing and building landscape construction projects as the projects must be built to industry standards so that they can last multiple seasons. This includes taking into account the proper excavation depths, the thickness of the base material, types of base material used for the application, type of compaction required, whether the project will require a drainage system, and the amount of force that will be placed upon the surface of the hardscaping projects.
Every project is unique and, as such, a one-size-fits-all answer cannot necessarily be applied. We will provide some pricing below for hardscaping features however we recommend scheduling a landscape consultation to get the most accurate pricing for your particular project.
Paver or slab patio estimate:
The typical cost to have a paver or slab patio starts at $40 per square foot if machines and equipment have easy access to the location of the desired patio. If there is limited or no machine access to the desired patio location the costs may run anywhere from $50-60+ per square foot as more manual labor will need to take place to complete the project.
Retaining wall estimate:
Retaining walls will significantly vary in price due to the wide variety of options available. To get the most accurate pricing, we would suggest booking a landscape consultation.
Some factors that will impact the pricing for retaining wall installations include:
Projects location (out of the city projects will have additional fees
Height of the retaining wall
Free standing retaining wall or retaining wall built for structural purposes
The amount of excavation required
