Hardscaping/Landscaping

We can't say enough about our fabulous patio and gardens. Connie did such an amazing job matching our outside to the inside. We couldn't have imagined what she came up with but it is exactly what we needed and we love it!

Front and backyard landscaping design and project management

We hired Connie to develop a landscape design for our front and backyard. She had some tough conditions to deal with which were created by our previous landscaper who provided hardscaping services. But because of Connie's deep knowledge base she was able to find a solution to each roadblock and thus came up with a design and plant plan that surpassed our expectations!

We hired Garden Retreats to design and execute a landscape garden for our newly renovated backyard. From the initial design to the final product, our garden looks fabulous and we couldn’t be happier.

We had finished putting in a pool in our backyard and wanted to ensure we had a beautiful garden to complement it. We were referred to Connie and she designed a brilliant and beautiful garden. Connie listened to our needs and created what we wanted to accomplish. She's honest, passionate and great at what she does. Can't wait to see what she designs for our front garden.

Front Yard Design

Connie designed an attractive, four season, front garden that is easy to maintain. The addition of a pathway of stepping stones has been handy to access the backyard. Her design has been admired and enjoyed by me and the neighbours across the street.

backyard landscaping

We are so thankful that we used Connie to design and oversee our backyard landscaping. Her expertise and design ideas were brilliant and we couldn't be happier. Her contractor also gave us great service and the entire job was done within a few days.

Landscaping of front yard

Connie Cadotte took our messy front yard and turned it into a French parterre. The result is everything we asked for - and we love it!
Her contractor was on time, very efficient, and very skilled.

Backyard Reno - Landscape Design, Architecture and Planting

Connie gets all the gold stars. Her passion for her work was eveident from our very first conversation. I would recommend her to any homeowner who is looking for landscape design that finds the right mix of form and function.

Connie listened carefully to what we had to say about how we wanted to use the space and our interest + talents for gardening. Educated as an archtect - she gave due attention to the structural issues that were clear and present in my project. Then she drafted a plan that turned our backyard into the most inviting "room" in our home.

The plan included a 800 sqft stone patio. Connie helped us find a contractor to install the hardscape and then came back to put the greenscape in place.

ON TIME - ON BUDGET - LOW MAINTENANCE - BEAUTIFUL

Thanks again Connie

We had our courtyard and built in BBQ installed by Garden retreats, there were a couple of adjustments we wanted done, and they were made promptly, professionally and pleasantly.

Their work looks amazing
