Lots of times, they'll do this for free. Especially in off-season times. I'd call around and see if anyone does. We had one out when we first moved into our house (21 years ago). She sketched out a plan for us with shaped beds and suggestions as to what to plant where.
I've got a built-in consultant though. My wife has worked at Greenfield Plant Farm off and on for the last 15 years. Our yard is slowly going from a sun yard to a shade one. The spindly little trees we planted 21 years ago have matured into very nice (and shady) trees. Just got a winter king hawthorn for the last open spot.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
