Testimonials about our Landscape Designs

Here are some Testimonials for Landscape Designs by Down2Earth Landscape Design. Satisfied customers from throughout Durham Region and beyond are eager to praise Joanne Shaw for helping them design and create their very own dream gardens with four-season appeal!

 

Working with Joanne has been a pleasure. She was able to take our existing large space and create an oasis around the projects we had started with out a plan. Our many ideas and concepts were transferred into an artistic design and ultimately turning a vision into a dream landscape. Her leadership and expertise was greatly appreciated. We recommend to everyone beginning a project to START with a landscape concept and organize your ideas with Joanne before starting various phases.

Joanne was a warm and incredibly intuitive professional who listened to our dreams of a garden space, and then delivered so very much more. She visited in the coldest part of the winter and throughout the design, planning and ultimately planting phases she was truly in tune with us and our property. We started with a yard that flooded every spring, then grew excellent weeds in the back corner. It had no substance nor plants that thrived in the environment they lived in. Joanne studied the sun and shade patterns, asked for feedback on plant and hardscape choices, provided exceptional advice in her personable and friendly fashion- and the end result is an out of this world oasis that was the backdrop for our son’s outdoor wedding. We cannot begin to thank her for what she has provided for us, and we would be pleased to have anyone come visit to see her work in person. Do not hesitate to have her help you!

I wanted to express my warmest appreciation for your service in the re-design of my garden.  You are a knowledgeable professional and a very good listener.  I am so glad for the plan you created, it helped me visualize the garden before construction and it helped save so many potentially annoying mistakes–the importance of a plan!  We enjoy our garden so much more now. I would definitely recommend your services to my friends.

We originally hired Joanne to help us with a fencing solution for our front yard. We were stumped on how to integrate it with a feature rock wall and the slope of our driveway. Joanne went above and beyond with some great ideas on how to put it all together plus how to improve the existing gardens. Joanne takes her time to understand how you want to use a space and respects your preferences while seeing it all through her expert eyes. I highly recommend her services whether you have a blank slate to start with or need to re-imagine a current garden.

My first meeting with Joanne was refreshing since it was clear to me that my garden design was going to be a joint project and that my input was important! All through the design, contract work and installation of plant material, Joanne has been a wise and knowledgeable garden professional. I value her follow-through, her interest, and her enthusiasm for her work.
