Why engage a Landscape Architect?

Landscaping is an investment that can run in the tens of thousands of dollars or more. A Landscape Architect is university trained to design the most efficient use of outdoor spaces. Not only can you achieve a well designed, functional and aesthetic landscape, you can add value to your property. A US University study has found that landscaping is one of the only items in home construction that can result in a positive return on investment of more than 100%. The study concluded that 'homeowners wanting to increase the value of their property will do well to consider the cost-effective, return of quality landscaping, and to safeguard their investment by hiring licensed, professional landscape architects/contractors to perform the work.' This also applies to subdivision design with landscaped streets providing more attractive communities and yielding higher lot sales.
