Frequently asked questions

Since we’re reinventing the wheelbarrow, we put together a list of the most commonly asked questions from other customers.

Let's create your dream project together.

Creativity, knowledge, and passion drive our team of Yard Hack Guides. Each property is unique and every homeowner has their own needs, style, and budget. With our experience, we’ll develop a plan which is functional and custom for you. 

Our goal is to have smaller jobs back on the same day and larger projects within 48 hours. The larger the scale and complexity of the project will determine the length of time it will take to provide an accurate 3D landscape design and cost estimate.

No, you're not required to pay anything upfront. 3D landscape designs, cost estimations, and revisions are all free of charge with no obligations. We offer unlimited revisions until we create your dream project plan. Credit card info will only be taken after the project's proposal has been approved. We require a 10% deposit of the supply invoice to secure the project and order materials.

We have a dedicated designer team that uses the latest technologies to do measurement, design and estimate online, which eliminate the need of site visits and thus greatly reduces the cost and increases our efficiency.

Of course, we offer the choice of two quotes; one is a "Supply & Install" estimate where we supply all of the materials needed to finish the work and one of our approved contractors comes to do all the work outlined. The other option is a "Supply" estimate where we can supply you with all the materials & tools (if needed) for you or someone of your choice to finish. We are happy to help in any way that we can. 

It will include 3D designs, guides, and detailed cost estimates such as materials with quantities, unit price and total prices, tools needed, rental rate, total cost, labor hours, hourly rate and costs, delivery costs, taxes, and etc.
