How Much Does It Cost to Have a Landscape Designed?

One of the most important considerations for your backyard landscape is the budget. During your initial consultation with our landscape experts, we will listen to your ideas and goals for your outdoor space to gain an understanding of your expectations with the finished product. The cost of professional landscape design can vary greatly, depending on a number of important factors, including:

Property Dimensions

The bigger or more complex the property is, the more time that is required to plan the landscape design or to address any challenges or environmental concerns.

Scope of Work

The design and construction fees will depend upon the type and number of features included in the project, as each element of the landscape design requires thoughtful planning and coordination from inception to completion.


You can expect to pay a bit more for the services of an experienced, accredited landscape design firm with an impressive portfolio, although the additional cost is typically reflected in the quality of the work.
