In my opinion:

You might get some arguments but I think it depends... The architect is usually first to work on the project and often works on planning and site issues before the LA gets involved. If the buildings are already located or built, then a LA might lead on the site ideas--if they are capable in this area, and would have input from the architect. Different locales may have different ways of working. In our area some LA's are less interested in the basics of site design but would like to have early involvement. Others just come and take on the planting areas given them. Their interests may be different but not antithetic to the archtect's.

The size and type of the project are factors. Are you providing parking on a small lot (LA's might not care to be involved in the planning) or is there a grand drive entrance? It makes a difference If you perceive of the project as a garden with a building or a building with a yard.
