The client called us in late July and note: “I have seen your crews working in the neighbourhood, love your work, I bought a new house that needs extensive re-landscaping, I take possession in 4 weeks, I would like you to start the same day.” After one meeting to finalize the design, the 4 weeks were up, and shovels hit the ground.

The scope of work for this project was very elaborate, it included pruning existing vegetation, new irrigation, lighting, hardscape patio, precast and natural stone retaining walls, bird bath feature, sod, trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. The tight timing of this project was a challenge, along with working through the grading for the new patio and building of the retaining walls to create an open and leveled courtyard area. 

The retaining walls and hardscape elements had to work around some of the existing features that were already in place, this made it challenging, as well as the reduced access in the courtyard area. But most importantly, we created what our client desired and will enjoy for years to come: “Working with Planta Landscape has been pure pleasure. Maria created a beautiful garden design that completely mitigated the inherent flaws on my property. Frank and his crew worked tirelessly for a month to implement Maria’s design. Just as the work was all coming together, we had 18 inches of snow on my new frail plants. Maria, Frank and the entire crew dedicated Herculean efforts to ensure that everything survived, and this lovely vision became a reality. I recommend Planta most enthusiastically: they work with enthusiasm, integrity and a commitment to perfection. Truly, they are a very special company." Sheila O’brien.
