Take Root Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"I hired Take Root Gardens in March of 2014 for a total overhaul of our modest Vancouver backyard. Not only was the execution flawless, they added a lot of value in the design and planning stage, with some great suggestions that worked out really well. During the actual work, they were always right on time, took very good care of our property during the work, and cleaned up spotlessly, even going so far as to powerwash our deck, which was not part of the project. What stood out the most, was how much care they took, and how detail oriented they were. The overall quote was very reasonable, and they came in right on budget and on time. I would hire Ty & Matt again in a second and highly recommend them."

Grandin & McIntyre Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"Had I not hired Grandin&McIntyre to redesign my five acre house site, I would have continued to blunder along into a series of half-baked truths, landscape-wise. Instead, and quite suddenly, I am now in paradise. Multiple site visits and a full set of accurate drawings covered every detail, including plantings. These guys are geniuses. Worth every penny."

Donohoe Design Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"I hired Ryan threw a recommendation from Houston Landscapes who I hired threw Houzz to do some basalt stone work on my home. Jeremy from Houston Landscapes felt the project needed a eye for some new and fresh ideas for the ocean side of my home. We both met with Ryan who was an absolute pleasure to deal with and after our first consultation my wife and I decided to hire Ryan to get a new vision on the ocean side yard. Very shortly after Ryan came up with a few concepts that we then chose one from and he rendered drawings, exact depths, measurement and then a final 3D version. The end result of his vision was truly amazing. I would highly recommend Ryan and his company to anyone thinking of redoing any part of their homes, he is a true visionary and a great honest person to deal with."

Botanica Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"We hired Botanica to do our front yard landscape design and installation, and we were so happy with the work that we hired them again the next year to do our backyard. We have a very unique pie-shaped lot, which made the design a lot more challenging than a typical lot shape. The Botanica team did a great job listening to our overall objectives, and translated that into a design that made the most of the space. Karin and Otto were very respectful of the fact that we had a specific budget for the project, and they worked within that budget. The installation crew was great - always professional, and very hard working. The work Botanica did really transformed our outdoor space, and we would highly recommend them."

Vancouver Garden Design by Klavdi Kukovic
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"I have been told that it is difficult for garden designers to possess all the skills necessary to be a great designer. However, Klavdi hones many of these skills. His respect for the history of garden design and his frequent travels to remarkable international gardens are evident in his designs. The ability to present these designs in such a professional manner minimises the stress in the decision making process. His knowledge of plants and their maintenance is irreplaceable. Respect for our budget and time was apparent throughout the development and it felt very comforting during some high stressful periods to have Klavdi at my side. He is a true professional. Klavdi was determined to deliver our vision and we have our dream garden. I would not hesitate to recommend Vancouver Garden Design by Klavdi Kukovich."

THOMAS KYLE: Landscape Designer
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, BC
"We initially hired TKL-Design to do our garden in Crescent Beach BC in the form of a traditional English Perennial Style. He truly transformed the garden into a story-book with an inviting winding stone pathway meandering through beautiful gardens of flowers, shrubs and trees . It doesn't matter where you stand in the garden - the small as well as the large is exquisite and consistent. We are now building a new contemporary home in White Rock BC and once again have turned to Thomas Kyle - principal designer and owner of TKL-Design, for the landscaping. His ideas so far are perfect for the sight and our lifestyle. We are very impressed by his bold creativity, yet he knows when to hold back for the full impact as well. He is a true professional with all the knowledge of the trade. Both our architect as well as our builder couldn't be happier with our choice of using TKL-Design."

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Vancouver, BC house. From there the Vancouver landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed British Columbia landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A Vancouver landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Vancouver, BC will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a British Columbia professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Vancouver, BC:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
