Backyard Greenery to Complement a New Deck

I originally contacted Vertical Landscape Architects when first thinking about creating a backyard landscape featuring interlocking stone, however plans changed and instead of designing the entire backyard landscape, I reached out to Jason to add the finishing touches to my backyard space.

Nevertheless, regardless of change of scope, Jason was more than willing to assist in creating a completed product and he was very mindful of both my design aesthetic and budget in providing options.

In the end, without his assistance, my backyard (and frontage) would not have been completed to our satisfaction. Kudos to Vertical Landscape Architects and in particular his team.

Would highly recommend!

From 'Eyesore' to 'Eye Candy'

During late April/May 2022, this landscaping company did a major restoration of our front and back yards. Overall, my wife and I are very pleased with the process and outcome of this work.

The lead Landscaper and crew were always polite and easy to work with. One feature we appreciated was that at the end of each day they carefully cleaned up our driveway and walkways. After listening carefully to what we wanted the Landscaper provided a very detailed plan and cost estimate, and he kept the project on target. We especially appreciated the creative process of interacting with our Landscaper . For example, when I raised the idea of having a centerpiece to help visually create a focus in our large backyard, the Landscaper came up with a brilliant plan that was executed. Without question, the most interesting outcome of this co-creation process with the Landscaper was what we did to the back of our garage. As you walk into our backyard the wall of the garage is cinder block - an eyesore. Jason suggested that we create a trellis with plants growing up to cover the wall. A great idea we thought. Then, we mentioned having a couple of chairs in this area that includes a majestic oak tree. Our dialogue with the Landscaper evolved to creating a stone patio framed by flowerbeds. We now call this area our lower lounge. It is a magnificent retreat that gets the best sunlight in late afternoon. Thus, this previously ugly area of our yard was transformed from being an eyesore into eye candy.

This Landscaper and crew did very high-quality work, on time and with premium materials. My wife and I are delighted by the transformation of our front and back yards. The price was fair but quality does cost. We would recommend this Landscaper without question to anyone who considering doing a major landscaping project and wants creative input.

Modern backyard

Vertical Landscape has been involved with my property for the past 10 years. The latest project was a complete backyard renovation. Although you don't see the final results for a few years everything is growing in beautifully. The lighting design is very effective.

Gorgeous green wall

Jason and Phillip designed and built the most gorgeous green wall and fences on our patio this spring. The floorspace is tight so the green wall gave us a perfect solution - beautiful greenery and a feature wall which we could never have had with planters.

It was a pleasure to have Jason and Phillip here- they are craftsmen and lovely to boot. We thank them for making such a special space for us, which we enjoy every day. They worked so hard to make it perfect, and it's beyond that.

Wow, thanks! It was an absolute pleasure working with you on such a unique project. We had a great experience and we are really proud of the finished product. Thanks for being so flexible with little design decisions that came up and for being so accommodating with scheduling conflicts associated with supply chain issues and the pandemic. We're so happy that you love your new and improved space! Cheers to good times on your terrace with family and friends and to wonderful clients like you!

Backyard Landscape Design

We worked with Vertical Landscape Architects after a prolonged pandemic reno left our former garden an ungraded muddy mess. Jason helped to reimagine an outdoor space that met multiple priorities for low maintenance garden beds, open space for small children, entertaining and rear lane way access. His outdoor lighting design has completely transformed our backyard and makes for such a lovely view of the garden at night even when we are inside looking out. Moreover, he was one of the most reliable contractors we encountered during our renovation process (clear communications and explanation of costs, addressed problems and deficiencies, presented options/solutions for us to make the call before proceeding, showed up when they said they would). While we experienced some delays on account of supply chain issues, we received regular status updates and ultimately felt like we were working with a company that cared about both its workmanship and customer relationships. We would not hesitate to work with Vertical Landscape Architects again.

Great work, great to work with

Jason and Phillip were great to work with, and their work is really great! I really enjoy my new yard, and even my neighbours have commented on how nice it is (and proceeded to hire Jason, they told me). Jason really got the look and feel I was after, was mindful of my budget, and invested a lot of time and effort picking out the right plants, the right stones, and the right materials for everything. You cannot go wrong with these folks.

Amazing Service/Amazing Finished Product

I can't say enough good things about Jason and the work he provided. Not only is Jason highly personable, his knowledge is extensive in materials, installation and green roof care.
Jason went above and beyond to make sure we got the best product as well as the best installation, including advising and coordinating with other trades (read: less than understanding roofers).
Jason ensured we were aware of every step of the process and made sure to keep us updated with any changes, new discoveries or suggestions along the way.
In my opinion, there is really no one better in the city to have working on your green roof!

Fixing a problem spot in our garden

We had a spot with two aging shrubs. VL dug them out and replaced them with several attractive new plantings. They fenced the gap perfectly. They also saved the smaller original plants and moved them to a better spot elsewhere in the garden.
