Courtyard Stone and Shrubs

We had our courtyard and built in BBQ installed by Garden retreats, there were a couple of adjustments we wanted done, and they were made promptly, professionally and pleasantly.

Their work looks amazing

Landscaping backyard

I first found Connie at the Home Show in January 2009. I really liked the display she'd put together and the different trades she'd organized. I called her when it was time to do our deck and backyard. We have a very small but challenging space and Connie was very creative thinking about what we could do with it. She really understands colour and plants and what will look good where -- which is important since I know nothing about plants. Connie also stuck to my budget and time frame. Thanks so much for all your hard work Connie! Our backyard is beautiful!

Front & Backyard Design

We hired Garden Retreats (Connie) to provide us with designs for our front and back yards. This was more than a gardening project, because we wanted to transform our tiny back yard from a hot sunny patio that we rarely used to a comfortable outdoor room with a pergola for shade and a nice place to cook and dine. Connie's designs were great and we're looking forward to building so we can enjoy our new space next summer!

Backyard Oasis

Connie and her wonderful construction team led by Remi created an absolutely magnificent garden retreat for our family in the backyard of our semi-detached Victorian home in Riverdale. Connie met with us to assess our needs and understand how we would use the space now with the kids at home and also into the future as "empty nesters". She created three beautiful spaces in our backyard: a gorgeous living area under a pergola (with shed that my husband adores); an eating area over cobblestones; and a stunning planted area with stepping stones. She has created a new living space for us that is both practical and a restful oasis. Thank you Connie!

garden renovation

My weed-infested lawn was transformed into a beautifully landscaped, low maintenance wonder thanks to the expertise of Connie and her crew. Because Connie was able to interpret my needs with her extensive knowledge of plants and design, I have a garden which gives both me and my neighbours season-long pleasure. And she made the process fun. I would highly recommend her services.

Backyard landscaping plan and purchase of plants

We hired Garden Retreats to come up with a plan that would transform our small Beach backyard into a retreat. Connie did a wonderful job of just that. Her plan was unique, and well thought through. She is enthusiastic and passionate about her work and pays great attention to detail. Thanks Connie!!

landscaping

Garden Retreats (Connie) designed the landscaping for our new house in Bayview Village and we are very happy with her service. She was able to produce the design to meet our needs and to our satisfaction within a short period of time. Connie is very professional and reliable and her follow-up service is excellent. Not only are we happy with the finished product but the compliments from our neighbours and friends make us feel even better. The stunning view of the garden has certainly enhanced our new house tremendouslyand the enjoyment we have is priceless. We would certainly recommend her service for any landscaping projects!

Design & Landscaping Front & Back Yard

Garden Retreats designed our back yard oasis and had all the resources to deliver the finished product including sprinkler system and lighting. Our yard has become our favourite "room" in the house
and added significantly to the overall value of our home.

Church Landscaping

My name is Kip Cosgrove and I chair the property committee for our church. In 2008, we had Connie from Garden Retreats help us with the design for the front of our church. Her expertise on plant locations, what type of plants to actually use was a tremendous help. She was very professional and very reliable. She went above and beyond for us and it was a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Garden Retreats for any project!!!
