How much does landscaping cost in Winnipeg?

Estimating the cost of your project

How much will my landscaping project cost?

If you are like most homeowners the cost of the project is often underestimated which is understandable as many of the costs associated with landscaping projects are spent on work that is only seen beneath the ground. These are some of the most important elements that separate a landscaping project that is built to last one season versus many years.  We have provided two different landscape estimate examples below. Every landscaping project is unique and as such the quoted price below may not appropriately represent the cost of your landscaping project. We would highly recommend getting in touch with one of our landscape consultants so that you can start planning your dream landscaping project!

How much will my hardscaping project cost?

As a Winnipeg resident, you know that we live in a freeze-thaw climate due to the wide fluctuation of temperature throughout the year. This is particularly important when it comes to designing and building 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 depth, thickness of base material, types of base material used for the application, and the load that will be placed upon the surface of the hardscaping projects to name a few factors.

Every project is unique and as such a one-size-fits-all answer cannot be necessarily applied. We will do our best to breakdown the costs involved in hardscaping whether you are looking at having a patio, walkway, retaining wall, driveway or any other hardscape feature installed. 

Paver or slab walkway estimate:

The typical cost to have a paver or slab patio installed ranges on average between $20-30 per square foot if machines and equipment will have easy access to the location of the desired patio. If there is limited machine access to the desired patio location the costs will run anywhere from $30-50 per square foot as more manual labour will need to take place to complete the project.  

Please view some of the following examples below which illustrate different scenarios that result in different pricing outcomes :

Project Phasing:

Project phasing is the process of designing and building projects over one or many seasons. Many of our clients choose to phase their landscaping projects due to not having a large enough budget to complete the project in one season. The cost of landscaping projects varies significantly based on the design selected. Some projects can cost only a few thousand dollars while others may cost over one-hundred thousand dollars which is why phasing projects is often a highly desirable option. 

Planning is an extremely critical aspect of project phasing to ensure that project plans today do not interfere with the plans of the future. This is also very important to minimize the overall cost of the landscape project.  One of our experienced staff members will be more than happy to work with you to design a landscape plan involving project phasing.
