“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.”

“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.”


“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.”
