Holly Springs (Raleigh area) NC: rec's for landscapers?

Hi All

Just moved to NC a few months ago and our backyard needs a TON of work. As before, I plan to do most of the actual work myself, but would like some professional advice/guidance.

Can anyone recommend a good landscape design company in the area? My focus questions would be:
1) Which existing shrubs to pull vs transplant (the house/grounds sat vacant over a year)?
2) Rec's on drought-tolerant species.

We're also considering installing a cistern to augment our irrigation system, so I'd like a landscaper who is well versed in projecting necessary watering capcity.

You may want to save the heavier work for the colder months.

We have used the same landscaper at our previous home and here at our new home. Robert Radcliffe is in Holly Springs (919) 427-2675.

You can view my blog to see the water feature (stream and waterfall); Jerith fence with stone corners; and large trees that he installed at our current house. He also built a large deck around our swimming pool last summer.

Great person, too!
