Many gardeners are happy to create their own landscape designs, but others prefer to hire a professional.
These professionals use your wants and needs to create a plan that fits your vision, budget, and site conditions.
Landscape designers typically focus on the use of plant materials and creating the right atmosphere in the garden. Landscape architects also have greater experience with grading, drainage, and hardscapes.
Ask up front about costs. Some professionals charge by the hour, while others charge by the project. Some may install the designs or can recommend someone who will. Don’t be shy about asking for references.
Hiring a professional can give you the landscape of your dreams.
