A well-designed garden is functional and enjoyable without harming the surrounding environment. Gardens can also significantly increase the value of your home, so taking the time to speak with a landscape architect will ensure that your garden will give you the best return for your investment as well as giving you hours of pleasure.
Landscape architects also:
Take the time to speak with the professional to ensure that they understand your needs and can work to your vision. Ask to see their portfolio or, even better, visit the gardens of some previous clients.
Always ensure that you agree to the price before signing any contracts or otherwise entering an agreement with the professional.
Landscape architects can charge anywhere from $70 to $250 per hour for their services. Expect a technician or landscape architect with less experience at the lower end of the range, while you will get the services of a principal, partner or associate at the top end. Practically speaking most will work on a percentage fee, based on the total project cost, and could range from 6 per cent to 20 per cent depending on the type and complexity of the project.
