Cynthia Stauder.... My parents are using her (as we speak) for a $25K re-landscaping job and they are thrilled!
I should add, she drew up very detailed plans for a very reasonable price. Plans included pictures of rec'd plants... she is highly rated on Angie's List.

You should try the DIY books. That way you'll get something that you want. Your mind will open up to more options instead of what the landscaper tells you. Plenty of books at Lowes or Home Depot.

I work for a landscape architectrual / architecture firm here in SA...we do a lot of high end commercial type product. We don't do residential for the most part and I don't know your price range but there are a few I can recommend depending on what you are looking for. I would first try to contact Chad Stranahan at c2 landgroup. He is the owner of the firm and they usually concentrate on residential landscapes. You can check them out at c2landgroup.com to see their portfolio. Hope that helps.

I got a nice push mower and weed eater. I'd be glad to come by and draw some nice designs, maybe your name! , in the grass for way less than $25K. If someone has that much money to waste on "landscape design" when people are loosing everything right now then they need a good butt whoppin....

I beg to differ. That $25K is going straight into the San Antonio economy. For people who have worked hard and made wise financial choices, I think it's a fabulous way to spend their money. Much better than buying a foreign car or taking an international trip.

ETA- I will be calling her soon to have her draw up plans for our sparse backyard. We will then do the labor ourselves.

Yeah, really. The $$ stays in the local economy. I haven't heard of any big box landscape design companies.

That said, I'm doing it myself at my house. I think figuring out where to draw the lines between grass and other landscaping is the hardest part. But that was already there (it's the stuff inside the lines that's been neglected). For $25K I'd expect everything - trees, irrigation, stone or brick border, the dirt and all that. I speak from experience that you can get a couple of really nice mature trees for $2,000 (tree + installation) if you ever decide to DIY part of it.
