How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Landscape Architect?
A landscape architect is much like an architect for your home – except they focus on the exterior spaces of your property.
A few reasons you may want to hire a landscape architect is if you want a beautifully designed outdoor space, if you need help with permits, or if you lead a busy life that leaves little time for you to carry out the project yourself. And while the cost of hiring a landscape architect can vary widely, one way to budget is to set aside 10-20% of your estimated project cost. Meanwhile, some landscape professionals charge a flat fee ranging from $1,200 to over $10,000, whereas others charge an hourly rate that on average works out to be $150 per hour. As for when you pay the landscape architect, typically you’re billed based on phases in the project – but all of this information should be lined out in your contract.
