Our Reviews

It was a pleasure working with Karen and Michael. They were both very professional right from our first consult. They listened to our needs and proceeded with the job in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Silver Fern Landscaping.

Anyone who loves their garden will appreciate the friendly personal touch Michael gives to his landscaping business. From a simple Spring cleanup job to a complicated garden structure, Michaelís ethic of hard work and skill of a master craftsman ensures that the customer is satisfied.

Michael is considerate of a personís finances and gives advice to complete projects within a limited budget without compromising quality and beauty. Thank you, Michael.

Michaelís work ethic is beyond reproach. There is no wasted time regardless of the weather. Michael comes back once a year to do the heavy pruning, other than that it is an easy garden to care for.

The garden Karen designed gives us joy throughout the year. I would recommend Silver Fern Landscaping without hesitation.

My wife and I have landscaped our other 4 homes, including 2 much larger sites from scratch and gardening has been our prevailing pastime for over 50 years, so we have some knowledge of plants and materials and the skills of people that we have engaged to help us. Michael has easily been the most knowledgeable, capable and experienced, both in design and performance.

For more than 15 years he has helped us to design the garden, to make and maintain the plantings and constructed the hard landscaping of paths, walls, fences, pergolas and trellises, all entirely to the satisfaction of my wife and myself. His knowledge of soils, plant material of all kinds and use of the different materials used in hard landscaping is immense. We are more than satisfied with his work and our pleasure in the garden increases each year as his plantings mature.

In design, Michael has taken careful account of the ideas of my wife and myself, which are not always identical, and made additional and practical comments. He has been patient and tactful and more than willing to adopt the final decisions.

In addition to our garden, Michael has also made substantial repairs and improvements to our house, including a 3 level tower for a domestic elevator through a garage roof to the approval of a Professional Engineer and the elevator company, the replacement of a faultily constructed deck and the conversion of an indoor swimming pool room into a guest suite. Again, all this work has been done to our complete satisfaction.

Over the years we have come to know Michael well and we have complete trust in his honesty and integrity, giving him access to our home whilst we are away and use of accounts with lumber yards and the like.

With the benefit of his advice in choice of plant and hard landscaping materials, and with careful maintenance in pruning and feeding, our garden has become a great success and our house much improved.
