Last summer we had a deck installed on oir townhouse. Since then we've noticed that it's taking longer to get all of the grass and soil to dry. We're thinking it may be prudent to have a landscape architect take a look and make sure the back yard in properly graded and the mostly clay soil has the right mixture to help with drainage.

Any suggestions on finding a good architect would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Others may know local sources - one place I know to ask, that folks here may not think of is the forum at Archinect. Its mostly a place for architects and arch students to discuss issues in the field, but every once in a while you see a would be client (usually a small client) looking for references for someone to use, or at least for where to find someone.
