Testimonials

“Four years ago when Karen & I moved to Orillia from Toronto, we were faced with the task of landscaping a fairly large property pretty much from scratch. As neither of us had any experience with a job of this magnitude, we decided to have a plan drawn up by a professional. On a recommendation from our next-door neighbour, we called in Michael Scott. Since that time we have been working with Michael on the implementation of that plan. Besides the high quality of the work, what we appreciate about Michael and his team is their ability to listen to what we want, and offer advice without trying to impose their own ideas carte blanche. Michael has also been extremely flexible in defining what portion of any project he will do. He has been willing to quote on whatever we don’t want to do ourselves, no matter how large or small the job. We still have a long way to go to complete the plan (does the job of landscaping ever really end?), and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with Michael and his team.”

“The landscape looks great.  As you can imagine, we’ll anxiously await to see all your work come to fruition.  It was a pleasurable experience working with you and your professional crew.  If at any time you want a reference, or someone wants to see one of your jobs, do not hesitate to give us a call.”

Jack & Jill

“Michael, I just wanted to write a quick note of thank you for the amazing job you did on our cottage stairs and sun room prep. With the majority of communication done by email after our first meeting which was 6 months before the work actually started I was a bit concerned that our original discussion of the concerns we were addressing would be forgotten.

You were very patient helping me navigate the various permit processes and you were able to deal with issues that arose quickly and effectively.

The final outcome is even better than I had imagined and your proactive actions on redoing the railing that you were not happy with, then the immediate response to fixing our concerns was amazing and not something you see every day with contractors.

Again, I’d like to say how thrilled we are with the final product and we’d recommend Michael Scott’s Landscaping to anyone looking for stellar work.”

“It sure was a good feeling to know that all was taken care of.  Your workmanship and your working with your men was indeed a pleasure to observe. Thank you.”

Jerry

“Mike, just a note to say I’m satisfied with all the work your crew did the other day.  All done with no fuss or bother for me.

While I had doubts about the large river rocks I am now quite pleased with the look thanks to your crew.”

James

“Thanks for a great job once more.  We spend a lot of time, already, sitting on our newest patio. I guarantee it will be well used once the kids start arriving with the grand kids this summer.  Always a pleasure working with you.”

“We had Michael Scott’s Landscaping complete the landscaping for our retirement home. Without a doubt, a professional organization. Michael and his entire team did an excellent job. Great planning, and great execution. We are absolutely delighted with their work, and with the many compliments we have received since the work was completed.”

“Michael and his team designed and built a yard that was my wife’s oasis. I have nothing but praise and admiration for his company’s abilities and talents.”

Freedman Residence

“We had heard of Michael Scott and had seen some of his work over the years so making the decision to have Michael come out to meet us was an easy one. I immediately was made to feel that they understood the overall look we wanted to achieve. Michael sat down with us before coming back with design that included the basic design, his recommendation of plants (alternative plants), trees and colour. I am detail oriented and very much appreciated the design that was received. We agreed upon the design and price as well as time schedule for when they could begin, estimated time to finish and maintenance of gardens. Needless to say we were extremely pleased with the gardens and the changes that occurred over the season with colour. The gardens grew into more than we ever imagined. Thank you.”
