Retaining wall and landscaping

Braking up this retaining wall into 2 was a pretty good idea to add dimension and depth to this challenging entrance due to the height and short distance to main entrance, the design is simple straight lines, but I think it flows pretty good.
Materials used are paver cambridge with armor tect ledgstone sahara chestnut with sandstone border, vyking wall sahara chestnut was used for wall and steps, the landscaping gives it the final look.

A proper base is one of the most important aspects.

    How much do you think it would take to have a contractor do this magnificent idea?

    Great work. My friend has almost same design except in some type of natural stone. There is a wall on the other side of the upper stairs, and just the lower wall to create the area for flowers, etc. as upper not needed. Can't imagine what it cost to do from scratch. He spent over $5000 just to reset some stones in some of the steps.
