Nicholson Landscaping Installations and Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"We chose Nicholson Landscaping over other competitors for a number of reasons. First and foremost was Mr. Nicholson's ability to really listen to our needs and ideas. From the design stage right through to project completion, he was always in communication with us. There were never any unwelcome "surprises" as the job progressed. Of course, the actual cost of the job was important. We had a budget, and Mr. Nicholson was respectful of it. He provided us with various options to stay within the budget, without compromising the quality or appearance of the work. Most importantly, his estimates were accurate. Any extra work was always explained and approved by the customer in writing, before commencement. None of this would mean a thing without the necessary skills to bring a project to fruition. Mr. Nicholson has an extensive background and is trained in all disciplines related to landscaping. He knows equipment, materials and the methodology to select what works. Very few of his competitors gave us any confidence in this regard, so it was a pleasure to relax and let him and his crew transform our property. In the end, the finished project more than met our expectations. The budget was reasonably maintained, the level of workmanship consistently high, and the client / contractor relationship was always amiable. Highly and most enthusiastically recommended!"

Donohoe Design Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"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."

Metamorphic Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"Linda has great vision and was able to accurately build what I could only vaguely describe. She is professional in her conduct, and completed my project on time and on budget. Her personality worked well with other contractors on site, and there were no problems working with tradespeople on site.I was happy to recommend her to friends needing her services, and they too were very pleased with the quality, and beauty, of her work. The mind of an artist, and the actions of a businesswoman!"

Take Root Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"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."

Easton Landscape Design and Construction
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"We are thoroughly enjoying our newly installed landscape that Mary Easton, Nicole Easton, and other members of their team installed. They have selected an excellent collection of plants which meet our needs for low maintenance while looking attractive and having interest throughout the year. Mary has provided helpful advice in the choice of what we could do, designed a really attractive way to deal with sloping property, and added interesting elements that enhance the appearance like a "dry creek bed" look to address the joining of the slope to the level grass areas. The quality of grass installed is also noticeably excellent relative to neighbouring properties. Mary also has provided good information to us about how to care for the plants, and what maintenance will be needed yearly to keep it looking healthy and attractive. Our neighbours are complementing us on the garden and enjoying it as they walk by or see it adjacent to their properties. Our yard has become a lovely addition to the neighbourhood."

Paeonia Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"Paeonia Gardens did an amazing job in designing the backyard of our dreams. Jen was such a fun, resourceful designer, and was very receptive and accommodating to any changes being made to the design. She worked very hard together with us in creating our vision. She was a pleasure to work with!"

Grandin & McIntyre Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"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."
- James Craig
Pacifica Landscape Works Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver
"In 2011, we hired Michael to come up with and implement the design for our rooftop patio. He was very professional, extremely patient in asking the right questions to understand our needs and was intuitive and creative to say the least. The end result was absolutely stunning and exceeded our expectation. Michael I want to thank you for designing the perfect getaway for me and my family!"

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 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 Vancouver 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 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:


  • 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?
