On average, it will cost about $4,419 or between $2,015 and $6,825 to have a landscape designer create a detailed plan for your property. Costs will vary depending on the size and location of the project. For simpler projects, it’s also possible to get one to two hours of on-site verbal consultation for $50 to $150 per hour. On the high-end of the scale, name designers and architects charge $6,000 or more for detailed plans and drawings.
No matter what your house looks like, landscaping also affects how attractive the whole property is. The key to a beautiful and successful landscape is careful planning and design to ensure maximum value for the dollars you invest.
Essentially, a landscape architect/designer is a professional who designs outdoor spaces and gardens by preparing detailed plans, sketches or concepts for clients. They can also assist in overseeing the buildprocess and landscape contractors to make sure the design intent comes to fruition.
The best time to begin landscaping and planting trees, shrubs, and perennials is in the months of April and May. These spring months will give your plants the opportunity to grow and acclimate during the summer and fall.
