Poor lawn replacement and refusing to stand behind their work.

WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT ENGAGE ARTISTIC LANDSCAPING AND DESIGN. THEY DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR WORK. READ THE STORY AND LOOK AT THE PICTURES........

Attached are pictures of our lawn and the neighbors on either side. The first is the neighbor to the right of us. The second is our lawn after Artistic re-soiled and sodded. The third is the neighbor to the left. The lawns to the right and left look as they should. Ours looks diseased.
Artistic's salesman said the weeds came from neighboring lawns. You can see from the pictures of neighbor lawns this is not the case.
We had another lawn-landscaping company look at ours and they said the topsoil put down had to be poor quality and full of weeds to start with.
COMPANY PRESIDENT EVA SCHMITT DISAGREES AND RESPONDED AS FOLLOWS:

"Origin of screened soil and sod is from suppliers we use daily for 30 years." (JUST BECAUSE YOU BUY FROM A SUPPLIER FOR 30 YEARS DOESN'T MEAN THEY CAN'T SELL YOU POOR TOPSOIL)
"Your lawn was thriving in 2016 and 2017" ( HOW DO THEY KNOW THIS THEY WERN'Y HERE DURING THAT TIME). "In July and August of 2018, Ottawa experienced severely dry
and hot temperatures above the usual lawns were not shaded and regularly irrigated.
Cause of death of your lawn (and many others in Ottawa in 2018) lack of water even regularly watered,
crabgrass flourished and lawn needed treatment.
As such, Artistic Landscape Designs has not installed poor soil or sub-standard sod.
Regular irrigation on lawns twice weekly for 2 hours per area would have saved your lawn."

Nonsense. Artistic wasn't out here weekly to see if we watered. This is a convenient excuse (without evidence) for poor quality work. We watered regularly since they did the work.

Don't trust them.

Patio/Deck Design Consultation

No stars for this company. I echo what another reviewer has written, in that the consultation yielded poor results, and feel deceived by their approach. I paid $300 for a 2 hour home consultation, which I was told would result in a backyard living space design. There was no real design input. I was provided with a hand drawn sketch of my existing patio and deck with a few irrelevant features added that I told the consultant I didn't want. These unwanted features were included in the quote that I received 2 weeks after the visit. The quote itself, I can only assume, was based on refreshing my current patio and deck, even though I had been clear during our meeting that I wanted a better design for the space. Isn't this the purpose of meeting with a "designer"?? Clearly, I was not listened to. I also think it's inaccurate to quote a project based on already existing structure (patio, deck) to "establish a budget" when the actual cost of what could replace it could be much greater. I did not expect a full blown architectural plan, but based on their reputation, and having to pay $300, I did expect relevant design advice. No refund, either, for the non-design! Due to the poor quality of design (lack thereof) and attitude when I queried this, Artistic Design has lost my business.

Amazing Flower Beds

Eva Schmitz designed beautiful low maintenance flower beds for our home. Her team came out with all the supplies and did a wonderful job prepping the site and installing the high quality plants. We truly enjoy the gorgeous colours and fragrances throughout the summer months!

Every year we buy our spring summer flowers here. The selection is great and we often find new plants making it part of a fun shopping experience. We love this place.
