Backyard landscape

Fabulous! Outstanding! Amazing!
From beginning to end it was an absolute pleasure working with D'arcy and his team!
Our project was not an easy one due to it being a ravine lot with a very steep slope. D'arcy was very professional and very knowledgeable, worked through every adversity with such calmness and ease and he had solution for everything. Well done Flattery design team!! Thank you for everything

Front and backyard landscaping

D’Arcy and the Flattery team did a fantastic job of our landscaping. They took a very narrow, semi-detached lot with sagging fences and muddy ground, and reinvented it as a beautiful backyard oasis.
They also built a new front porch and stairs, garbage and recycling bin shed, and garden bed and walkway.
D’Arcy’s plan made excellent use of the space, and he has a refined, modern design sense that focuses on good materials and superb craftsmanship.
The whole Flattery crew were punctual, efficient, responsive, and very pleasant to deal with. The head carpenter, Cameron, is excellent - incredibly detail oriented. Countless little finishing touches and details - these guys really care about quality and take pride in their work.
Ben, the foreman, went to great lengths to keep the project on track and on time, despite some challenging weather. Even came by the house in one of those epic May downpours (on a day off) to install additional drainage on the neighbour’s property and stop ours from flooding.
We’re thrilled with the results and would highly recommend Flattery for your project.

Besides all the rain, we really enjoyed our time on this project. We loved transforming your existing space into the modern oasis it is now. You were wonderful to work with. Thanks again!

Backyard Patio

I'm happy to write a review for D'arcy and his team from Flattery Design.
I had been planning on getting my backyard patio done for several months. I had a vision but wasn't quite sure how to approach it, D'arcy helped me put my ideas on paper and then got his team to execute it in an incredibly efficient and professional way. His team was happy to check in with me every step of the way and their workmanship and attention to detail was of quality. The end result was above my expectations.

landscaping after house reno

D'Arcy and his crew did a fantastic job of transforming our front yard and back garden after they'd been flattened by a year's worth of house renovations. D'Arcy took the time to understand what we wanted, what would work for our family and designed different options to stay within budget and also to go with the overall design of the house. We wanted pretty simple and easy-to-maintain landscaping but the team did a great job all round and dealt easily with a few necessary changes along the way. Would definitely recommend for similar projects.

Terrace Design and Renovation

It was a pleasure working with D'Arcy and his team throughout our high rise terrace renovation. I saw his exhibit at the Canada Home Show which showcased his expertise in landscape design.

D'Arcy not only helped in the planning and design but also helped with all building permits and approvals.

His team was professional, skillful and hardworking. I was particularly impressed with their problem solving abilities as we faced a few challenges along the way. The team was more than willing to accommodate last minute changes/additions in the design. The project was completed on time and within budget.

Garden deck reno

D'Arcy design was creative and innovative. A curved cedar wall and door was the showpiece. The final results were amazing and all our neighbors comment on it as they walk buy it in the back lane.
His carpenters are the best. Talented, tidy and friendly.
No hesitation recommending them.

Outdoor Living

After meeting with several companies and constantly being disappointed with their vision and process, we came across Flattery Design working on another property on our street. We phoned the number that was displayed on their trucks and yard sign and it was instant chemistry with D’Arcy from Flattery Design. His concepts for our home were outstanding and it became a quick and easy signature to get started. D’Arcy’s team was just wonderful. Their attention to detail was like no other, and it’s obvious that they love what they do. Throughout the entire process, we truly felt at ease and we would highly recommend Flattery Design to anyone.

Landscape design and build

We needed a complete overhaul of our backyard but did not have a big budget after our house reno. After going over our wish-list and budget with D’Arcy, he was able to come up with a design that met all expectations. He sourced unique and creative materials that brought the project together and the price down. He extended our living space outside and the transition was flawless. The project started and finished on time and his crew was great to work with. They were extremely polite, hard working, and professional with outstanding craftsmanship. We definitely want D’Arcy and his crew back constructing our front yard next year - we couldn’t be more excited. Flattery design is outstanding at what they do.

Backyard reno

We hired Flattery Design to completely redesign our backyard. We moved into a new house and in the summer gutted our backyard and added new stone, grass, plants, trees, a living wall and lighting. D'Arcy created an exceptional design that met our budget and we couldn't be happier with how the backyard turned out. There was also great communication during the process, his workers were proficient and D'Arcy checked in and followed up with the progress each day. I would definitely recommend Flattery Design.

Poor workmanship but expensive

We hired D'Arcy and his crew to renovate our landscap in the front and back of our home. They delayed the start of our project on several occasions and they finally began the work in the fall of 2014 and completed it in the spring of 2015.

D'Arcy was rarely around and he left a lot of the day-to-day project management to his foreman Mark. He did come by when it was time to collect money.

The design provided by D'Arcy for the renovation was nice but the execution was very very poor. Our front lawn, after the renovation, slopes from north to south. We asked D'Arcy to correct it and he made a half-hearted attempt to do so. In addition, the ground cover that D'Arcy recommended and assured us that it would spread within a year never did and we had to remove them and re-plant with other varietals ourselves. We wonder whether D'Arcy and his team really knew anything about plants.

Mark constructed a privacy screen for us in the backyard and we call it the bride of Frankenstein because it looks like it was quickly cobbled together and the workmanship is god awful poor. The screen started to fall apart within 6 months and I had to fix it myself. Again, great design but very poorly executed.

D'Arcy is a friendly person but he was rarely around once the contract was signed and his team is not that good. We found the quality of his work to be very poor and we regret our decision to hire Flattery Design. We would certainly not recommend him to anyone.
