Yes, it's labor intensive, but doing most of your own landscaping will also save a lot of money. The cost of a $4 perennial will increase to more than $10 if a professional landscaper plants it. The price of bushes and trees will often double when planted by landscapers. Do as much of the work yourself as possible to save. If you do need to hire a landscaper, try to get a package deal, where plants and labor purchased together will offer a discount over purchasing separately. If possible, design your own landscape plans, then use a professional to review it if necessary. A full design plan including drawings and planting can cost upwards of $1,000, so the more work you can do yourself, the better.
