For years I have been planning on redoing the whole backyard. removing the old deck and fence and getting rid of all the grass, but never felt I had the right person for the job, even though I had had many consultations prior, until I met D’Arcy Flattery owner/designer of Flattery Design Inc at the 2014 Canada Blooms Show ( it was his first time there). After having had a consult with him I knew he saw my vision of a very modern space featuring all the elements, fire, water, wood, earth, plants and stone . I am extremely particular in what I like so it was very important that I hire someone that was also very easy to communicate with. D’Arcy and his crew were absolutely amazing. From the planning/design process through the completion of the project D’Arcy was very professional, punctual and always kept me in the know of what they were working on. D’Arcy and his crew , including Mark his foreman, were also perfectionists. The quality of their workmanship was outstanding, utmost attention was paid to every detail, especially my custom designed corten steel water feature. I should note that D’Arcy was also always on site and hands-on. I can’t say enough nice things about D’Arcy and the stunning outdoor living space that he created. Our project was also on time and on budget! I would recommend Flattery Design in a heartbeat!!
Our backyard now looks like a page in a home décor magazine – at least that’s what it feels to us! We truly enjoyed working with Flattery Design. There are very few boutique-style landscaping companies that genuinely master both stone and garden work. It makes the most sense to collaborate with a team that can provide an overall vision to give proper advice. Their boutique style approach means that they have a contemporary sense of style, are fairly priced and a have a dedicated team that we got to know over the course of the project. Put it this way, it was a little bit sad when the project was completed. We enjoyed their company and so did our kids. We recommend Flattery Design to anyone looking to create a wow in their backyard.
D’Arcy has a distinct creativity that sets him apart from other landscape designers. His artistic and unique designs gave us a new look for our home that we were completely and beyond satisfied with. From flagstone work, to a water feature, and endless creations of planting beds of perennials, shrubs and trees throughout our front and backyard, I can now spend countless hours admiring our landscaping project provided by Flattery Design. The continuous compliments we receive are a direct result of D’Arcy’s complete professionalism, attention to detail and his skilled creativity in design work.
Our project was extensive and included landscaping, replacing the driveway, a Muskoka room, an insert BBQ, a garden including planter box and sprinkler system. The results were amazing! Our guests and neighbours compliment us on how nice our property looks, and we’ve enjoyed many gatherings in the comfort of the new Muskoka room.
From the beginning, D’Arcy presented us with different design options and met with us on multiple occasions to inspect different stone materials.
During the project, his crew was courteous and cleaned-up each day, and they cared about the quality of the work. D’Arcy personally supervised the project and often worked with the crew to get things done.
Throughout the process, D’Arcy responded to queries and he stayed in touch after the project to ensure our satisfaction.
Thank you for a job well done! We are really pleased with the changes and look forward to enjoying our property for many years to come.
D’Arcy created a fantastic landscape plan for our new home. From paper to reality –our front, back and side yards were transformed to beautiful blooming gardens with minimal upkeep. Everything was completed on time and our gardens and stone work that he created continue to thrive.
We would like to truly thank you for designing and overseeing the landscape work. We are very impressed with your professionalism and design talents. It has been a real pleasure working with you – our property is absolutely beautiful. We wish you all the best.
We believe that the most difficult part of home improvement projects is finding that skilled individual who you know you can TRUST to listen to your ideas, work with you calmly to solve issues and to complete work with no hidden added on expenses on an agreed upon schedule.
Flattery design did all this and we couldn’t be happier with the decks, privacy fence, and gardens. We love our new backyard and we are proud to share this new space with our friends and family. We are looking forward to hiring them again to landscape the rest of our property!
D’Arcy from Flattery Design did a complete overhaul of my front and backyard. His company did a great job and remained within my budget. D’Arcy is a very reliable and honest person and on top of that a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend using Flattery Design for your next landscape project.
