Significant (front/back/side of a 1/3 acre lot) design & build landscape project just completed with Genus-Loci. We have been delighted with the quality of their work and professionalism of their staff from start to finish. Initial contact/meeting was with Jean-Marc who then got Simon involved in preparing the design plan after meetings with us. The detailed design plans were prepared on time and with regular communication throughout to ensure that the plan reflected all of our needs and wants. We appreciated the many creative suggestions and solutions Simon came up with throughout the process - no question in our minds that he put a lot of time into it. The build part was split in 3 phases (front, back side), with the same foreman (Howie) in charge for all. Howie worked incredibly hard and made sure his crews did too - the work is first rate and end result demonstrates it. Kudos to Genus-Loci for some really great suggestions "on the fly" - we made a bunch of minor changes to the design during the build based on thier suggestions and all have contributed to a great end result. We still have some planting, lighting and other work to be completed in 2012 and will be working with Genus-Loci to complete those items, based on our positive experience with them this year. I can't say enough about happy we are. And our friends and neighbors have also gushed - about the quality of the design and the workmanship. Lastly, re: cost - we price tested various elements of the project and Genus-Loci's pricing was fair. In hindsight, there may be some who would have done the job for less, but I am not sure how the workmanship would have been. On the other hand, there are many landscapers who would have done the same job for much more. There were some unexpected issues that came up during the build that resulted in some cost overruns, but Genus-Loci handled them extremely fairly. All around, no complaints - we would not hesitate to recommend them (and already have to friends and neighbours).0 of 0 people found this review helpful.

- Thank-you both for the great review, we really appreciate all your comments and the referrals. It was a great project to work on and you both were great clients to work for. It was nice to see the project come together smoothly and to have an end result everyone is happy with. Hope you both are enjoying the new pizza oven and outdoor living space during this beautiful fall weather. Look forward to finishing up the remaining work next season. Have a great winter.
