1970s-era Country Home Landscape Revitalisation

A beautiful outdoor space should be a place of inspiration and sanctuary - a retreat from the hectic pace of everyday life. It should say welcome home, enjoy, stay awhile. Tumber transformed the rear garden and pool area of the 1970s-era country house that we purchased as our retirement forever home from worn-out and overgrown into a relaxing multi-use, multi-level 4-season retreat. The project included a revitalized pool and patio area, landscape lighting, perennial gardens, a 4-season cabana with gas fireplace and infrared heaters, a small stream which courses down the back hill to a fish pond, a wooden bridge, a new deck with recessed hot tub, and stones steps to a lower garden and fire pit patio. The project was not without its challenges. The Tumber team had to address drainage issues and work permitting approvals through the local conservation authority. Fortunately, they have experience and expertise with both. Their collaborative and creative approach to planning and decision-making made the whole experience enjoyable and we would highly recommend them. In fact, we hope to work with them again soon on some improvements to the front yard.

Landscape entire Country property

We engaged Randy about 30 years ago for our new home, as an initial phase.
Being very pleased with the entry of our home, we later acquired his services to completely design & subsequently build our entire country property, integrating our home into the beautiful rolling hills of Ontario.
We were very pleased both with creative design process as well as the finished construction. It has received numerous awards of excellence, both in Canada as well as internationally. As a result of this, we have also had Tumber do work for us on our properties in Toronto, France & Germany, with the consideration of South Africa as well.
In addition, Tumber & Associates have also done the country home of our son who lives in Canada as well.
We now have a very good relationship that has spanned some 30 odd years & continue to stay in contact.
The quality, content, depth & craftsmanship is excellent, & we have no reservations in recommending them.

Landscape Design from scratch

We bought our house in 2000 with no landscaping on an empty two acre lot… It was a blank canvas. For us, this was a large project, as we had some general ideas but no specific direction for Randy to follow. Randy needed to listen to our needs and wants and then design something to meet our lifestyle while keeping it within a pre-determined budget. Randy Tumber and his team managed to give us the privacy we wanted and turn our property into an oasis. 16 years later with mature gardens, we still enjoy our landscaping. We have never regretted entrusting Tumber & Associates to do our landscaping. Randy is trustworthy, reliable and most of all he cared about our project. He constantly ensured that we were satisfied at every step of the project. We have no hesitation recommending Tumber & Associates to anyone looking to start a beautiful landscaping project.

Landscape Project

I undertook a significant landscaping project at our farm that involved a remediation of an existing pond, a waterfall, silt traps, beach, fire pit and floating wet lands. Randy was really the only person that had the vision for this large project and the technical background in understanding how ponds work. I would highly recommend Randy and his team. He produced an incredibly quality project.

Landscape design and construction

I have had an excellent experience working with Randy Tumber and his team over the past number of years. Randy is very knowledgeable, extremely creative with design, and helped me dream up an amazing master landscape plan for my backyard. We have been implementing this plan in various phases over the past 8 years as I could afford it (with more to come in the future!). Each project has been completed efficiently and professionally by his team, with the results far exceeding my expectations. As I had hoped, the design elements have blended into the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape, such as the hot tub we installed, which is surrounded by huge, moss-covered rocks, which make it appear as if nature put it there! Overall, I have been very satisfied with Tumber & Associates and can highly recommend them to anyone looking to transform their property into a magical landscape.

Full Yard Landscape Plan

We used Tumber to landscape every aspect of our property and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Randy was given full creative control of the project and came up with a plan that more than met all of our needs and wants. From the design phase to implementation and completion, we felt that we were given Tumber's full attention.

We also appreciated the fact that the design plan was able to be implemented in multiple phases. Given the scope of the project that was much appreciated. The "WOW" of their design plans, the dedication of their hard working team and absolute quality of their work set Tumber apart from the competition.

The project was finished on time and ended up winning a national award which is a testament to their work. We would not hesitate in recommending Tumber for any landscape project.

Total Construction of back yard gardens, entertaining areas, cabana, walkout basement

Randy Tumber innately knew what our needs were and constructed a back yard oasis, that will stand the test of time. He does not give in to fashion trends but constructs timeless elegant landscape areas. The staff is extremely courteous, gracious and knowledgeable. There is never any bad language, abusive behavior. The job site is left impeccable each day.

Swimming Pond Renovation

Randy and his team are experts in the design and build of fully landscaped outdoor swimming ponds that look completely natural and blend into their surroundings. They are highly professional in their work and communications, and very quick in addressing any project-related issues. They transformed a common pond on our property into a beautiful river and pond system with a beach, dock and fire pit area that is sure to be enjoyed by our family for years to come. I would highly recommend Tumber & Associates if you are considering an outdoor pond as a unique alternative to a conventional swimming pool. Randy and his team will create a one-of-a-kind piece of living outdoor art that will set your property apart.

Orangeville Courthouse, & 40 Lawrence Ave. Orangeville

Randy Tumber has been the landscape designer / contractor of preference for our organization for over 14 years. He has worked on several projects with us. Properties in our portfolio have won several awards, including Landscape Ontario, and Communities In Bloom.

Initial project was the design and construction of our Courthouse complex gardens, with extensive plantings in front of the Designated Century old Courthouse. This has, and continues to be a showcase for our organization.

Tumber & Associates were engaged to provide design and construction of the landscape elements around 40 Lawrence Ave. Orangeville ( new build), and an expansion of the already extensive gardens to compliment the new courthouse addition, completed in 2011.

A level of client understanding, and commitment to each project undertaken, Randy’s vision with respect to design is without equal. Designs are not viewed as just a single project, but a long term strategy. Recognizing that trees, shrubs, and all other aspects will evolve and grow over the lifetime of the property.

Randy is a consummate professional, and remains available to discuss his projects, and offer assistance long after the job is done. We can recommend his services without hesitation.

Fountain installation

The Tumber crew installed a fountain for us expertly and on schedule so that it worked perfectly, could be easily dismantled and stored over the winter, and could be easily reassembled by us in the spring.
