Weird question...

aikidokap(z9 Southern CA)April 14, 2005

We bought our home approx. 2 years ago. When we did, we re-landscaped the backyard around the pool to include a number of large queen palms and some other tropical plants.

Now that some plants are mature, I think it needs to be refreshed...some plants used in the original revamp, while economical, aren't really "tropical" enough.

We live in So. is it possible to pay a landscape designer to come in and draw up a refresh plan that I can then implement? Do any do this? The only experience I have with LD are as a precursor to their company actually doing the installation work.

Anyone with any helpful hints, I'd appreciate it.
