Cost of Hiring a Landscape Designer

Landscape Design Costs and Prices

The average cost of hiring a residential landscape designer is about $65-75 per hour. A landscape designer can provide a variety of services. He or she can provide basic design guidance or draw up detailed plans. They can help you select plants, choose light fixtures, and design water features. A landscape designer can even help design an outdoor kitchen.

The cost of hiring a landscape designer will depend on:

1) Your geographic location. The prices for materials and labor tend to be higher in major cities and metropolitan areas. If you live in a small town, the cost may be substantially lower than the national average. To find estimated prices near you, check out our Landscape Design Cost Report.

2) Your needs. If you are planning on doing most of the work yourself, you might just need a few hours of the designer’s time. A design consultation may be just what you need. If you are not so handy, you may enlist a landscape designer to create a detailed master plan with precise measurements and material specifications. The more help you need, the more you can expect to pay.

3) Project size. What is the approximate square footage of the project? Creating a design for few flower beds in the front yard will be much cheaper than coming up with a design for several acres of land. Special projects, like designing a pond or engineering a complex retaining wall, may increase the cost of your project.

4) Design revisions. Once the plans have been completed, you will have the opportunity to review them and request changes. Extensive design revisions will likely increase the cost of your project.

5) Finding a landscaping company. Bringing the vision to life will come at an additional cost. Although some designers also offer landscaping services, you may need to find a separate company to execute the design plans. The cost of landscaping will depend significantly on the materials you choose and the time required to install, build, and plant each piece of the design.
