How Much Does a New Front Landscape Cost in Virginia?

Asking about the cost of landscaping in Virginia will help narrow down your options. We’re dealing with fewer variables because you’re not likely to have a fireplace or outdoor kitchen in front of your home. We’ll break it down to the simplest possible level, using a “standard” home in northern Virginia.

Pricing for Front Plantings in Virginia

If there are existing plantings, removals/pruning/transplanting is the wild card in terms of price, so we’ll ignore it for now and assume planting on virgin ground with no significant removals of sod, trees, mature shrubs, etc. If that’s the case, you can expect to pay between $2500-5000 for an extremely basic foundation planting and $5000-10000 for more complex and interesting designs.

Front Walk Pricing in Virginia

The cost of a new concrete walk is generally $8-12 per sq ft, pavers are $15-25 per sq ft and flagstone or brick on new concrete averages $30-35 per square ft. The average cost of a new concrete walkway is $8-12 per square foot, pavers are $15-25 per square foot, and brick and/or flagstone over new concrete is $30-35. (I do not recommend using flagstone over stone dust as a front walk because it should be smooth and consistent. This means that for most homes you can spend as little as $2000-3000 on a new concrete walkway or as much as $4000-7000 on a flagstone path.

Pricing for a Front Porch, Portico, or Portico in Virginia

Costs for Porticos and Porches can vary widely. Porticos can range from $15k on the lower end up to $20-30k on the upper end (stone, composite trimmings, copper roofs, etc). Porches can cost anywhere from $25-30,000 (for a pressure-treated wood porch) to $50,000 or more for a large porch with composite decking and composite trim. This is a great option to increase the value and beauty of your home while also keeping you and your guests safe from rain.

Pricing for Front Landscape Lighting in Virginia

Landscape lighting costs vary depending on the site, but generally speaking, your transformer will be the most expensive. For a rough estimate, I suggest that people assume at least $200 per installed fixture as an approximate starting price. Costs can vary depending on the type and quality of fixtures, their location (a fixture installed 30 feet in a tree will cost more to install than a pathway light mounted on a stake on the ground), and many other factors.
