It was a pleasure working with D’Arcy and his team throughout our high rise terrace renovation. I saw his exhibit at the Canada Home Show which showcased his expertise in landscape design. D’Arcy not only helped in the planning and design but also helped with all building permits and approvals. His team was professional, skillful and hardworking. I was particularly impressed with their problem solving abilities as we faced a few challenges along the way. The team was more than willing to accommodate last minute changes/additions in the design. The project was completed on time and within budget.
D’Arcy’s design was creative and innovative. A curved cedar wall and door was the showpiece. The final results were amazing and all our neighbours comment on it as they walk buy it in the back lane. His carpenters are the best. Talented, tidy and friendly. No hesitation recommending them.
D’Arcy and the Flattery team did a fantastic job of our landscaping. They took a very narrow, semi-detached lot with sagging fences and muddy ground, and reinvented it as a beautiful backyard oasis. They also built a new front porch and stairs, garbage and recycling bin shed, and garden bed and walkway. D’Arcy’s plan made excellent use of the space, and he has a refined, modern design sense that focuses on good materials and superb craftsmanship. The whole Flattery crew were punctual, efficient, responsive, and very pleasant to deal with. The head carpenter, Cameron, is excellent – incredibly detail oriented. Countless little finishing touches and details – these guys really care about quality and take pride in their work. Ben, the foreman, went to great lengths to keep the project on track and on time, despite some challenging weather. Even came by the house in one of those epic May downpours (on a day off) to install additional drainage on the neighbour’s property and stop ours from flooding. We’re thrilled with the results and would highly recommend Flattery for your project.
Fabulous! Outstanding! Amazing! From beginning to end it was an absolute pleasure working with D’Arcy and his team! Our project was not an easy one due to it being a ravine lot with a very steep slope. D’Arcy was very professional and very knowledgeable, worked through every adversity with such calmness and ease and he had solution for everything. Well done Flattery design team!! Thank you for everything
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.
