Landscaping Cost in Winnipeg

How much does landscaping cost in Winnipeg?

Starting to plan for your landscaping project? Great, you came to the right place!

We are going to help you through every step of the process, answer any questions that you may have!

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 $20,000 to $100,000 or more. 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.​

Can I phase my landscaping project over the course of more than one year?

Absolutely, this is very common amongst many clients as the upfront cost to do a large scale landscaping renovation in one year is not always feasible.

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.

How much do 3-Dimensional landscape designs cost?

At Xtraordinaire Landscapes, our unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional landscape designs is complemented by our dedication to providing transparent and fair pricing. The cost of our landscape design services is influenced by various factors, each meticulously weighed to ensure the creation of a tailored solution that aligns seamlessly with your vision and project requirements.

1. Property Size: The size of your property plays a pivotal role in determining the intricacies of the landscape design. Larger properties, while offering expansive canvases for creativity, necessitate more extensive planning and design elements. From expansive lawns to meandering pathways, our team meticulously tailors the design to maximize your property's potential, ensuring every inch is utilized harmoniously.

2. Project Complexity: The complexity of your project impacts both the artistic and logistical aspects of the landscape design. Projects involving intricate features like water elements, hardscaping, or specialized plantings demand a higher level of expertise and attention to detail, resulting in additional time in the design phase. Our team embraces the challenge of complex projects, crafting designs that seamlessly integrate diverse elements to create a cohesive and visually stunning landscape.

3. Architectural Design of the Home: The architectural design of your home is a pivotal consideration in landscape planning. The more intricate the architectural design, the more time our team invests in constructing the design using our software. Whether your home boasts modern lines, traditional charm, or a blend of styles, our designers collaborate to ensure the landscape complements and enhances the unique character of your residence.

4. Elevational Changes Throughout the Property: Elevational changes introduce an additional layer of complexity and opportunity to a landscape design. Managing slopes, creating terraced gardens, or incorporating elevated features requires strategic planning to ensure both aesthetic appeal and functional use of space.
