A landscape designer, sometimes called a garden designer, is a professional who offers advice on garden design and layout.
The main difference between them is manual labor. A designer will help you plan your garden layout and design and draw up a list of plants that fit. But once that’s done, it’s up to a professional gardener or a landscape contractor to prepare the site, plant flowers, and shrubs, or handle the topiary.
Landscape designer costs vary depending on the location, the size of your garden, and the complexity of your project. For example, designing a vegetable garden will cost less than designing a Japanese garden complete with a koi pond.
