My wife and I bought our first home a year ago. The front yard is very
When I was growing up, I was the neighborhood garden boy. But I never
gained much experience designing -- I just planted things wherever the
neighbor wanted them.
So I want to improve the front yard with some basic landscaping, but
don't have the time or energy thinking and researching about which
plants and which materials. I know I want "a red wall that goes like
this and some bay grass stuff that goes like that, and something blue
over there". But's that's all I got.
I am considering hiring a professional designer -- but that depends on
the price. I would be interested in just purchasing a design, and
maybe a materials list. But I would want to do the work myself,
perhaps over the next few years depending on how things go.
Anybody know a ballpark figure of what a basic landscape design costs?
I know the answer is "it depends", but I am hoping to get some
ballparks to see if I am barking up the right tree.
