Hiring a landscape architect is highly advisable for homeowners building or renovating a new house, especially one with a huge garden. A professional landscaper can handle interrelated tasks ranging from creating hardscapes (like walkways, wooden bridge, decorative boulders & rocks, trellis, etc.) and softscapes (good soil and plants) to recommending outdoor furniture crafted with quality materials and suitable lighting.

A landscape architects services can also be utilized well by owners of commercial establishments like a restaurant with an outdoor area or preschool with a large area for kids to run around, or large-scale projects like a beach & country club.

Beyond that, a landscape professional can help homeowners add years of enjoyment of, and satisfaction for, their outdoor spaces.
The first American professional landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead Sr. was responsible for construction of the new Central Park (NY) in 1857. The project was resumed after the Civil War along with new ones in Brooklyn, N.Y.; New Britain, Connecticut; San Francisco, California; Chicago, Illinois and across America. With the success of these ventures and the growing popularity of constructed park cemeteries, the landscape gardener was beginning to be referred to as a landscape architect. Schools and colleges across the country pitched in, offering professional degrees in landscape architecture to budding landscape architects. Landscape architecture is now recognized by the International Labor Organization and is represented by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
