Okotoks Customer Testimonial
Hi. My name's Hector. I had The Landscape Artists do my yard and my new home about four years ago, five years ago. And I've known Peter for many years, and we're quite pleased with what they did when we booked The Landscape Artist.
One of our priorities being on a corner lot was to create some privacy, and they helped us create that, very well with the trees, the design and the fireplace. It worked out quite well for us. And we're very pleased.
When we purchased the home, it was a show home, but there was no landscaping done. And we wanted to make sure that our yard and our landscaping was relatively maintenance free. We didn't wanna deal too much with upkeep. And so they designed some unique things for us that made it very easy to take care of the yard.
We had a great irrigation system put in. It does all our gardens. It does the lawns, of course and it does our plants and our pots so that we really don't have to worry about watering anything and, you know, in Okotoks, it's quite rigid with watering restrictions they have. So our system is able to meet those restrictions and keep the plants happy and healthy.
Some of the key things that that I really liked was the curbing that was put in makes it very easy to cut the grass. No trimming really involved and the plant selection and gave us a variety of different colors during different times on that, I think is pretty unique. We get a lot of comments from people driving by too. Ask us who did our landscaping, which is kind of cool.
One of the unique challenges we had in this yard. They don't have any of those curbing trenches at the back of the lots and all the water drains down. And Peter suggested that we should put in weeping tile, which has really helped us immensely because we do get some flooding in the back and with the weeping tile drains fabulously, and we're really glad they made that recommendation.
And we decided to go with The Landscape Artist, we were very keen on getting the right design, and Peter did a great job for us, and we were also on a somewhat rigid time schedule, so we were concerned on getting it done in a timely fashion and within budget every day. When they went home, they cleaned up and it was really uneventful from a construction perspective. And we're very pleased. Unlike most construction projects, we came in budget and it was done very quickly and they worked hard at it. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Landscape Artist to my family and friends. I think that what they did was outstanding. They came in budget and they basically delivered what they promised. So we're very pleased.
