What should I expect to pay for residential landscape design?
Please help me get started here. I'm looking for a comprehensive master plan for my 1/2 acre yard, inclusive of beds, foundation plantings, irrigation, lighting, walkway(s). I've read that an hourly rate for a design is absurd. I spoke with someone yesterday who charges $90/hr and estimated 14-15 hours for a project like I described. Does $1400 sound remotely reasonable? She works for a local/large landscape supply company and they give back 1/2 of her fee in a credit for use on materials.
