Answer : A landscape designer can be a great asset when you are looking to create a specific look or feel for your yard, want to maximize your outdoor living space or have a difficult site that needs special consideration.
However, hiring a landscape designer is not always necessary. If you are comfortable making decisions about plants and hardscaping materials, and have the time to do the research and planning yourself, then you can save money by doing the job yourself. Start by drawing up a plan of what you want your yard to look like, then find pictures of landscapes that inspire you. Next, take into account the climate where you live and choose plants that will thrive in your area.
