Our customers often have questions when it comes to landscaping and hiring a qualified, professional landscaper. We welcome any questions you may have while you are considering this important decision.

The often asked question, "What is an Ecological Root?" provides us with the opportunity to discuss environmental priorities with our clients. At PBM we are encouraged to see Global Warming as front page news again.

Thank you for a job well done. Maybe you're trying to win an award, maybe you've just got good taste! The whole family is very pleased with the work the crew did, and just as important, the neighbours seemed thrilled. Thanks for a job nicely done, see you next year for another enhancement.

Don & Jeannine

Thank you for the great service. My perennial beds look just beautiful. Excellent job. Thank Brad and Rod for me.

Lynda

Jeff and I want to thank you and your crew for the beautiful new stone patio/entertaining area, pergola, fence and other woodwork. Brad and the crew did a beautiful job and we have a lovely private space now. It was a pleasure doing business with you again.

Connie & Jeff

Excellent! Terrific! We get such great comments on our new walkway and entry area. Thanks Peter.

Maureen & David

I'm very pleased with the work you did at my unit earlier this month. I also wanted to take this opportunity to say that the interlocking and Pisa stonework performed by your company, not only at my unit, but throughout the condominium development, is top notch and has improved the look of our development immensely. Your staff were very conscientious, tidy and polite and I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again for a job well done.

 Questions
 

1. Can we do the work in stages so we can afford the quality at each stage and budget for the costs?  Answer...

2. Can we do some of the work ourselves to save some of the cost?  Answer...

3. Can we maintain some of the existing landscape features on our site?  Answer...

4. If our builder has offered us a landscape budget, what should we ask him for?   Answer...

 
 Answers
 
1. Absolutely, PBM has many clients who stage large projects over multiple seasons or years, allowing them to plan and budget for each phase, rather than trying to do the whole project on too small a budget.  Back to Question

2. Yes, you certainly can. We understand that many people like to do some of the work for exercise or cost savings. We will help you with necessary specifications and advice on materials.  Back to Question

3. Please plan to maintain all that you can. It is PBM's priority to preserve and recycle all that is practical in keeping with the design and priorities approved by the client.  Back to Question

4. Don't ask for any planting, but attempt to get finished grading totally completed. This is expensive to do later and good topsoil with a healthy component of organic material is also very expensive. Soil is the soul of any quality landscape and we suggest you have 6-8 inches.  Back to Question

I just described what I wanted, the work was done in my absence and it looks great, exactly what I had envisioned! Thanks so much.

Debra

Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the front patio, step and retaining wall designed and constructed by PBM. What at first appeared to be a real problem area turned into a unique asset, and an enhancement to the house. We are also extremely impressed with the quality of workmanship and the professionalism of PBM employees. Many thanks. Looking forward to seeing you soon for other landscaping projects. The trees you planted for us last year are thriving...and a robin is nesting in the spruce!

Gene & Rick

Thanks for the splendid piece of work you and your crew did for us in August. We are very happy with the stone work in the lane way, the side patio and stone path to the garden house. It all looks so nice and the planting and bed work just sets it off.

Roy & Joan

Thank you for the planting work done following the completion of the beautiful walkway and step. We are very pleased with the work done by you and your employees and wish you much success in your business.

Raymond & Orma

Many thanks again for a job well done. The landscape that you had previously produced for us is maturing so nicely. We are very pleased with the results once again.
