A Cultivated Art Inc.

"Sundaura from A Cultivated Art Inc. provided us with a beautiful landscape design for our large garden at our respite home for children and youth with disabilities. From the first, she was a pleasure to work with listening to our requirements, developing a gorgeous design of low maintenance plants and shrubs, sourcing all the plants for us and helping with the installation. Throughout the process she offered a wealth of information on the care and maintenance of our garden and has been an incredibly helpful resource in the months since as well. A year after we first planted the garden, it has filled in very well and is just stunning!"

Welwyn Wong Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Ottawa
"We built a new home 10 years ago and contacted Welwyn to design the landscaping from scratch. She was always professional, pleasant and extremely knowledgable. The final design was based on Feng Shui principles and she made sure that during the construction, she was present to ensure that the huge rocks were placed in the right positions. We were delighted with the final product. We have had many people stop or ring the doorbell to ask who the designer was. A few years ago we contacted her to give the garden an update and again she was very creative and listened carefully to our needs. For the last 2 years we have been using her company to do the weekly maintenance, a new service, and again, have been very pleased."

Ardron Landscapes Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Ottawa
"I had the good fortune to be introduced to Keith Ardron in the fall of 2014 by one of my neighbours. My front and back lawns were not only a mess but they were also sloping to my house and not away from it which could turn in to trouble. Keith came to take a look and said that he could repair the lawns. As we were talking I also asked if he could build me a garden curb for the garden along the back of the house and I pointed out how I was unhappy with my patio and the weeds growing between the stones, he said there was a product available that would help deter that problem. The work was slated for the following spring. My next door neighbour and I decided that we would have our fence replaced and she met with Keith about the fence. The following spring Keith arrived on the agreed to day and started working. He removed the grass from the back and made the grade slanting away from the house. He even removed a tree stump that I had in the yard which was an unexpected bonus. After the yard was graded he put new topsoil down and then seeded the yard. Originally I had requested all seed, but after re-thinking about our dogs I asked Keith if he could put down sod on part of the lawn and he did. This flexibility was very much appreciated. Next was the garden curb, which turned out really nice. Last was the patio, he lifted all of the stones, put down a new base with gravel and filter fabric, re-installed the stones and added a new border of stones plus the addition of polymeric sand. The patio turned out really really well. Keith and his crew of 1 sometimes 2 people were always on time, even on one day when it was raining they were still working away. They were very pleasant and they did not leave garbage on my lawn. The front yard work was not extensive, it consisted of putting topsoil on spots that were low and grass seed. Next came the removal of the side fence. Because I have dogs, Keith put up a temporary barrier so the dogs could go out in the yard without escaping. Keith was given the go ahead by my neighbour to design the fence. When I was shown the design I was very pleased. The fence boards were placed horizontally not vertically and there are gaps between the boards. This fence is perfect for my neighbours and I because of our relationship (which Keith was aware of), my neighbours enjoy my dogs and this way they can see the dogs, the dogs can see them and it is easier to pet the dogs. I realize that this may seem a bit odd but it is not odd for us at all. The workmanship on the fence is wonderful. Keith gave us matching gates, which again my dogs enjoy as they can watch people going by on the street. The work was done on time and on budget. I have no complaints and would not hesitate to recommend him and I have already done so. The entire experience was so great that Keith is coming back next month to remove my hedge and install a fence on the other side of my property. The fence will not be open as that side of my property is on a path but it will compliment the fence. Keith is also going to fix my pond which I am really looking forward to."

Artistic Landscape Designs
Landscape Architects and Designers in Ottawa
"Artistic Landscape Design is a family owned business operating for more than 50 years. I had the opportunity to work with one of their landscape architects in a review of my landscaping requirements. I was able to have them transform my yard from rough patch of grass up to the pool, into a professional hardscaped and landscaped home. The work was divided into three major efforts over a series of years. It has made my home backyard an extension of our living space, and our front yard a welcoming garden with the grass replaced by flora. All the scheduled work was completed on time with great attention to detail. Upon review of the area near the pool to have an interlocking patio, it was determined that there would be too much rain and snow to allow proper drainage. At that time, onsite on the first day, a decision was made to install a French drain 4’ x 4’ x6’, connected 12 feet from the downspout. The work was professionally completed without impacting the schedule, and at no additional cost to my estimate. There was never any hesitation to work the design over several years, as I was always able to work with the same landscape architect. I never had to worry about permits, schedule, or damage to my property. In fact with the third effort, another patio and bed at the end of the pool, the company put down plywood across my driveway and existing patio to ensure the small frame equipment would not do any damage. Not only does the company do professional design, their landscape centre has a massive perennial garden, and the teams working at the sites are not seasonal workers."

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 Ottawa house. From there the 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 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 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 Ottawa 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 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 designers: .

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Ottawa:


  • 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?
