Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
Tutti Flora landscape design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
"We have a house and an acre of land in Metchosin, BC. It is a semi-rural part of Victoria so very lush, green and always growing! As we have not yet moved there full time, the garden was getting ahead of us and we were completely overwhelmed with the amount of work and at a loss for any ideas to get it under control and looking good. I went to a neighbourhood Garden Centre and basically said: "I need help" and they gave me Theresa Balak's card. I was ever so grateful! Theresa came over,to see us and we talked about what we envisioned, our lifestyle and our ideas and wishes for plants and the overall look we had in mind. She took measurements, created comprehensive drawings of the dream and gave us hope that we could find a solution that worked for us - easy care, drought and deer resistant and beautiful. She recommended three possible landscapers as well. Her flexibility and yet clear direction for neophyte gardeners was so appreciated. Her design and the landscaping of Natural Solutions has turned out out-of-control front yard into a beautiful display. (I am sure our neighbours are thankful and the deer travel through it with rarely a sniff or a nibble!) Thanks so much, Theresa!!"

Urban Habitats Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
"Lorraine Locherty is an amazing designer, who is intuitive, creative, and innovative. She took the time and care to listen to me and to work with me not only in the creation of my 1/3 acre garden but also in the selection of colors and furnishings in the interior of my home. In every aspect she has created a living space for me, which is peaceful and inspiring, comfortable and uplifting - a home, an oasis, a sanctuary. People love working with Lorraine because her vision is clear, her direction is specific and precise, and her appreciation is generous, encouraging, and inclusive. My garden has been photographed for Canadian Living Magazine and photos of the interior have been shown in several local publications. I am grateful to Lorraine each and every day. Her artistic gifts have enriched my life in immeasurable ways. Our ongoing collaboration is a true joy."

The staff at Down to Earth were efficient, careful, and knowledgeable. We will definitely be calling them again when it's time for Phase 2!"

Alfresco Living Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
"We had seen several examples of Larry Myers' work and knew that his clients were thrilled with the results, so we hired Alfresco Living Design to design and landscape our city property to provide privacy while at the same time making it an airy and beautiful space. He succeeded brilliantly. He makes it all work for several important reasons that earn him a five star rating: 1. He has an outstanding sense of design, offering truly unique concepts that are refreshing and tasteful. 2. He knows what trees and plants to use not just for how they will look but also how they will react to site specific weather and soil conditions. 3. He worked with us to really understand what was wanted and then to our delight exceeded our expectations. 4. He respects a budget (you can always do more, spend more) finding innovative ways to get the best results for the buck. 5. He is a great listener and a thoughtful, considerate and humble person who doesn't let his prodigious talent turn into ego. And a bonus; if needed, he can design and fabricate supporting structures in wood, concrete or other material as part of the design process as he did for us. Larry Myers and Alfresco Living Design well deserve a five star rating."

Mary Haggerty Designs
Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
"We have worked with Mary for a while now and she does great work. She is very customer orientated, she shows up on time and stays until the job is done. It's not very often you find designers willing to get their hands dirty, but I continuously see Mary working in the dirt oftentimes weeding gardens that weren't part of the job. We know that whenever she calls us the job is going to be organized, well run and with happy customers. We recommend her highly."

Banyon Tree Design Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Victoria, BC
"Lisa did a wonderful job. We redid our backyard from scratch and we love it. As we got started, she met with us and really listened to our preferences. She was enthusiastic about the examples/pictures that we had cut out or found in magazines. She incorporated many elements from our initial meetings into several draft designs. It was a tough choice and we ended up choosing one plan but then mixing some of the ideas from one of the other plans. Lisa was always professional, creative and extremely helpful. Our goal was to get a backyard that people would want to explore and enjoy- she accomplished all of that and more."

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 Victoria, BC house. From there the Victoria 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 Victoria 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 Victoria, 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 Victoria, 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?
