We’ll go over some costs based on our Winnipeg, Manitoba economy as well as what to look for when looking at costs.


A search through our blog will give you more pricing information such as hardscaping, lighting, etc. Please note, each project has its own unique set of circumstances and these prices are very general based on projects completed in our area, we complete projects properly with no skipped steps or cutting back material quality to save a few dollars.



Landscaping is a broad term, typically project costs start around $10,000 and can go well over $100,000 depending on features and yard size. This may seem like more than you planned for, one great thing about landscaping is we can complete projects in stages, spreading the project out over months or years.

A general price per square foot for installing sod in a new yard is in the $3 - 5 per ft² range. This includes the addition of adding soil to bring the yard to grade.

New Development Home Landscaping Pricing


When planning your new yard landscaping you'll want to plan accordingly. While sod and soil will cost $3-5 per ft², a general rule of thumb is to allocate 10-15% of the price of your home towards landscaping.


For example if your home costs $500,000 your landscaping will most likely cost at least $50,000 by the time you add a small deck, fence, a couple small garden beds and sod.


If you're looking for an extravagant yard with patios, garden beds, water features and more, you'll be looking at a $80,000 to $100,000+ yard.
