A Breathtaking Landscape For Your Home

When you want to create a truly amazing experience in your backyard for you and your family, it’s essential that you integrate nature with the rest of your space.

The sweet spot of any perfect outdoor living space lies in the blending of your hardscape and softscape. After working in the landscaping industry for over 8 years, our team has the experience and skill to help you find that perfect combination and bring it to life.

We seamlessly integrate your patio, garden, and yard into a unique space for you to enjoy anytime you want. Walk out your backdoor and behold a lush, colorful garden with a stunning green turf, a covered luxury patio with custom seating, and a heart-warming fireplace to bring everyone together.

Relax In Comfort And Luxury

Your softscape is an important part of any backyard. Without it your space feels lifeless, cold, and as if it’s missing a core element.

If your lawn is uneven, patchy, and your garden colorless, you can transform it into a rich natural environment that has the wow-factor you are looking for. And what better place to enjoy the eye-popping imagery of your new space than from your very own patio?

Have a covered, clean space where you can enjoy nature in comfort and style. A patio is also the ideal space for you to host your friends and have a BBQ with them on the weekends. Everybody will be able to enjoy the fresh air and all the extra space of your personalized patio, instead of being cooped up inside.

Gain more space in your yard while creating a stunning focal point

Retaining walls are so much more than just a structure made to hold back soil. 

Not only do retaining walls provide you with piece of mind that your home and surrounding areas are safe, they allow you to gain more useable space in your yard. 

This space provides you a place to garden, entertain, and play with your children and pets. 

The bonus of a retaining wall is that it creates a beautiful focal point for any yard. With over thousands of colors and styles to choose from, you will find a wall that you will love to look at day in and out.

Could not imagine a better experience. Consistently prompt, amazing communication, impeccable work…. But most importantly their customer service was absolutely incredible. Everyone on site was approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. They happily took a few minutes to talk about their machines with a very interested 3 year old who came to visit and waved to him from the window as they drove past. s. Sam openly communicated with the guys that were putting in our chain link and got everything set up for them. And he gave our neighbours daily reports on what was done/what to expect. Everything was taken care of down to the last detail – things like sweeping our driveway and street at the end of every work day. And Sam delivered our massive pile of dirt for our soon to be garden – which has been the greatest gift to the youngest in the house. This yard was horrible when we moved in – massive ankle breaking holes dug all over, sand patches, fences that were falling down, horrible patchy lawn that stunk. Sam and Natasha and the team have turned it into something that Nonna Guja and all her grandkids (and myself and her oldest granddaughter who live with her) will enjoy for years to come. We can not thank them enough or recommend them enough. They have built a place where so many lasting memories will be made.

Sam and his team took on a job in West Kelowna for me and did an amazing job landscaping the front/back/side yards. The job was a big one with the property needing regrading and drainage issues fixed as well as building a retaining wall, sidewalk and some garden area. They did a great job and I have one of the nicer yards on the street now. Highly recommend them for jobs in the Fraser Valley area.

We hired Sam to redo our front and back lawns after the city did some upgrade work on our street, leaving the front 6 feet of our front lawn almost entirely gravel. He dug up the gravel portion to replace with soil, and ensured both front and back lawns were even/weeded/seeded/fertilized and in a matter of weeks we had a beautiful lawn! We were so happy we also hired him to dig out some overgrown hedges, replace a retaining wall, edge and mulch several garden beds, and fix up our side gravel driveway. After all of Sam’s work, we regularly have neighbours comment on how good it all looks.
We would absolutely recommend Sam to anyone looking for landscaping services, his passion for his work really shows!
