Dream backyard Oasis

This was the second time we contracted Rowan Henry to complete a renovation project for us. Rowan and crew previously completed a total reno of the 30 year old home we purchased. We were so impressed that we invited them back 3 years later to complete the stonework and landscaping around the pool we installed this summer. Rowan came prepared to discuss all options available to us and helped us with some solutions we never thought possible due to some tricky grading on our property. I didn't realize how much a landscaper plays an integral part of a pool install, however Rowan accurately advised the pool contractor what grading the pool should be installed at and worked very professionally with our pool contractor.

Once the pool was installed, his team proceeded to complete our backyard with beautiful stonework and landscaping. His crew is always timely and very professional. They never left a mess and were very mindful of our property. Rowan goes out of his way to ensure the job is proceeding as planned and always inspects the work completed and makes sure it is not only to our satisfaction, but also to his. Once again, the project was completed on time and on budget. I can't thank Rowan and crew enough for a job well done and helping us to enjoy our summer in our beautiful new backyard oasis. I would highly recommend Rowan for any indoor or outdoor renovation project.

Norma, thank you for the kind words. We are so elated that your family is happy with your new oasis! The grading can be tricky in some backyards, and when it comes to a pool and stonework install, communication is critical for a seamless transition. We were happy to work on a successful collaboration with your pool contractor. We thank you for your time to write this and can't wait to work with you on the next project, Norma! All the best in the meantime!

Sincerely,
Creative Gardens

Backyard paving

Rowan and his team are absolute professionals. The design was gorgeous, and the work was done with extreme attention to detail. I cannot recommend this company too highly. This is the second time we've dealt with them and we are very, very happy. Don't hire Rowan for a cheap job, hire him for a job extremely well done that will look good for years to come and add a great deal of value to your property.

Backyard Patio & Gardens

We had contacted several contractors over a 6 month period to start our backyard renovations. Several contractors with similar ratings on Home Stars didn't even call us back. From the start, Rowan Henry was courteous, knowledgeable and professional. He made you feel that our project was his own backyard renovation. He was prompt to reply to our initial request for a quote and continued to give us unprecedented customer service as we worked with him to design our patio. As the process went along, it was evident that Rowan was extremely knowledgeable about his business. It was easy to place our trust in his work and company. We would highly recommend Rowan and Creative Gardens to anyone considering renovations.

Throughout the design process, there were a few occasions where the patio design was altered from our original design. Rowan and Jerome immediately discussed the changes they needed to make in order to make our vision a reality. It is expected that there may be some discrepancies between plans and the final product. It's how the contractor responds to any changes is the true test. Without any hesitation, Creative Gardens came through and provided us with the patio we dreamed of. Also, the team of workers were outstanding. They were courteous, pleasant to talk with and extremely neat. They went above and beyond our expectations for cleanliness and attention to detail.

Rowan worked very hard to keep us within budget; which is always challenging. He looked for alternative solutions and priced out other options while still delivering a high quality product and workmanship. Clearly the construction was just as important to Rowan. We look forward to having Creative Gardens back in the spring to finish off our Garden. Overall, the experience with Rowan and the Creative Garden Team was an exceptional one. So glad we had the opportunity to work with such dedicated people. Best of luck on your future projects.

Best Regards,
Mary & Ann & Rodrick

Front Planter

Our job was likely a relatively small one for Creative Gardens but they attended to it with passion and an incredible attention to detail. There was a very run-down planter on the city side of the sidewalk in front of our house. Its technically on city property, but they don’t maintain it. Its a major eyesore and the bricks were coming apart and falling into the road and weeds were coming up everywhere.
We asked Rowan, Jerome and team to rebuild it from the ground up, make it more durable and easy to maintain. But because its on city property, we wanted to keep the cost low. They delivered an incredible product on time and on budget. Throughout the process, Rowan reached out many times with work-around and creative solutions to keep within our budget. Communication was excellent and accurate. When they finished the rebuild I realized they had quietly done a few extras (Iike unexpected stone repairs and putting in a drip hose) at no extra cost. We are so thrilled with the final product. Couldn’t recommend them more highly!

Awesome Work & Awesome Team!

We met with several contractors and were not convinced until we met Rowan. Rowan was patient, creative and confident in his work and what he could deliver for us. We waited a few months for his team and were extremely pleased with the outcome and their schedule. Rowan was aware of every move his team made along the way and ensured that we stayed on course in time, cost and the expected design. Would strongly recommend Rowan and his team for your home project!!

Backyard Transformation & Front Yard Landscaping

My husband and I had met with a few contractors, but Rowan Henry was the only one who presented us with a number of ideas and solutions for our backyard. It was refreshing to speak to a contractor who actually really listened to our needs and offered suggestions as to what we should do and how it would solve our issues. Our small backyard had a basic deck, no privacy, a catch basin and drainage issues that left our grass muddy and unsafe for our small children to use. Rowan presented us with a design that would fix our drainage issues, maximize every inch of our backyard and incorporate landscaping that was minimal, clean and effective. He was the only contractor who did this and we were confident in our decision to choose Creative Gardens. Due to the unusually rainy summer we had, our project started later than anticipated, but Rowan was always very responsive to any questions we had and kept us in the loop as to when our project would begin. When construction began, we had no complaints with the crew. They were hardworking, respectful, organized and cleaned up their work area at the end of each day. They never left an unnecessary mess on our property or the street. We even decided to do a bit of landscaping in our front yard last minute and they were able to accommodate that as well. We LOVE the transformation to our backyard and the improvement to our front yard. We couldn’t be happier with the experience we had and have even started recommending Creative Gardens to our friends. Rowan made the experience easy and stress-free. He is dedicated to producing quality and works hard to maintaining this high standard of work. We look forward to working with Rowan again in the near future!

landscaping

Rowan was recommended to me from a friend. He re designed my front yard. This included removing large trees and planting foundation plants and trees that complimented the house and yard. He also added some landscaping to my back yard. I was very pleased with the experience. He answered my questions with knowledge that comes with years of experience. He responded quickly to any emails, and he clearly is proud of his work and stands behind the work his company completes. I would recommend his company to anyone of my friends - in fact I already have.

Frontyard Landscape

We're very happy with the service Kiel, Rowan and team delivered during and after they completed the landscaping job, and have been recommending them to some friends. We hired them to implement our garden design for our frontyard in the summer of 2015. They added their own touch through some fantastic input, and best of all, got the job done quite professionally and within just a few hours. In fact, they left no trace of being here when their crew and truck rolled away. That was impressive!

About a year later, one of the cedar trees they had planted died. We contacted them for replacement (as per their tree warranty), and they delivered according promise! It was really refreshing to find highly professional folks in this trade.

Bakyard Landscaping - Exceptional in Every Way!

Rowan is very talented and meticulous about how he runs his business. He and his crew are competent, hardworking, flexible, responsive, courteous, efficient and organized. They did our back and sideyard landscaping which was challenging, particularly because of special drainage considerations. Everyone took it in stride and got the job done in only 10 working days! I highly recommend you speak to Rowan when considering your next project.

Landscape design & repairs

I had a few quotes from some landscapers when I was in need of an addition to my backyard stonework & some repairs to existing work. I had come across Creative Gardens as I had already made a decision on a contractor. Rowan came out to meet me immediately & spent a great deal of time providing great ideas as to how to deal with some grading issues that I had. He priced me on the spot & was such a pleasure to deal with that I hired him on the spot. I had some time constraints to when the project was to start & he did everything he could to meet my deadline & he came through as promised. The crew was great & dealt with some unexpected problems without any complaint. The outcome looks great & I couldn't be happier. I've already told Rowan that he's got my next project to do soon. I've already recommended Creative Gardens to quite a few of my neighbors.
