So, to answer your question about the lien, the landscaper would have to reduce the alleged debt to judgment before he could file a lien against your real property.
What does "reduce the alleged debt to judgment" mean?

The payments I paid to the contractor directly.
If I tried to get money back over incomplete proposal items,
who do I sue? the designer or the contractor?
