Hiring a landscape architect
How do you know when it is worth the added cost to hire a LA vs not? I want to hire one to give us ideas of what is possible in our space. I also know that since we live on a sloped hill, things like erosion, drainage, etc are rather important. My husband says "No. We don't need to spend the money. Just call up the guy who did our low retaining/decorative block walls and ask him what we can do."
How much does a LA typically cost if you just want them to do drawings and then you source the workers for masonry, etc yourself? Or will most only do it if they are the "general contractor" of sorts? Thanks so much for any info. I'm in Orange County, CA if anyone knows of some good ones.
