Testimonials

We consulted with Duane regarding simplification and improvement of our back yard. From start to finish, it was truly a pleasure working with him. Duane really listened to what we wanted and came up with a beautiful design which included more hardscaping than softscaping, as we wanted to have less “garden work”. As part of the hardscaping, Duane designed an elegant fountain, built in place and he included a gas firepit. We can hardly wait for the warmer weather to arrive, as the entire space is so inviting, functional and beautiful. We followed Duane’s recommendation that we consider getting lighting installed throughout our back yard garden and what a good recommendation that was! At night, the whole back yard becomes a magical space which we can even appreciate while in our house.

Duane’s design talent is complemented by great organizational and communication skills. He kept us closely informed about every aspect of the project and was often on site. He ensured our project was done right by using superb tradesmen. No detail was overlooked, from carefully considered placement of the lighting to inclusion in the softscaping of some of our favourite plants from our previous garden.

We highly recommend Duane and will retain him again when we’re ready to improve our front yard.

In my experience Duane always delivers on beautifully composed landscapes. As an architect, I was very pleased with how Duane’s landscape design complimented the style and design of our home.
— – Jim Aalders
Duane worked with me to create a completely new landscape design for my new home; both hard and soft landscape. Duane produced a plan that met my needs perfectly - on the ocean, easy care, deer-proof and most importantly, beautiful. Some elements of the landscape changed mid-project due to changes in septic design, and Duane very quickly accommodated the changes.
The design is casual and comfortable, leading to different parts of the yard for different purposes. It all works wonderfully. Most importantly, Duane was terrific to work with, very quickly grasped what I thought I wanted and delivered on time always.

I would highly recommend Duane for any landscape design project. From our initial consultation I found him to be very professional, artistic and insightful. He took photographs and asked me a number of questions to determine what I had in mind.
My corner lot in Fairfield is somewhat elevated and highly visible. I wanted an outdoor space that was ‘easy care’, functional and connected to my neighborhood.
Following that he promptly provided a detailed design concept which I loved.
Once I decided to go ahead with the project Duane recommended a local landscape contractor and he continued to stay involved in every detail of the plan (fencing, size and placement of rocks, size and placement of paving stones, etc).
Through our collaborative effort my front/side yard has been transformed from an unmanageable, unsightly, embarrassing mess to an outdoor space that I enjoy and am very proud of.

The entire process was exciting, positive, very rewarding and within my budget.

When we built our new home, we wanted to ensure the landscape fit out modern open style Asian home. From a recommendation, we used Duane Ensing Landscape Design from LANDSCAPE SOLUTIONS. We can’t express the exceptional high quality and professional workmanship that Duane Ensing, owner of Landscape Solutions, did for us. He ensured that the landscape was not only functional and unique but also easy to maintain.

He used concrete and wood arbour throughout with a modern rear patio that is one of a kind. The landscape encompasses many amazing Asian style plants and flowers that bloom throughout the year. On our patio, he used glazed containers to provide us with additional privacy while adding to the overall Asian theme.

One of the many favourite parts of his exceptional design was the gorgeous and functional main stairway leading to our front oversized door with curved walls of concrete leading the way.

We could have not made a better choice than Duane Ensing.

LANDSCAPE SOLUTIONS has created a wonderful setting from a blank canvas providing my home with a unique, functional, and beautiful property design. The finished product met the required criteria by allowing the best use of space to accommodate ample and convenient parking, a spacious and inviting entranceway, and enough green space without adding the burden of high maintenance.

As well, the design and choice of materials accentuates the architecture of the house and has become the showpiece of the neighbourhood.

Thank- you Duane for adding great value to my reconstruction project at a very reasonable price.
— – Randy Otto
We were very pleased with the ease of working with Duane. His quick and creative responsiveness to changes required for our project. We also appreciated his knowledge regarding some of the by-laws that helped us avoid additional unnecessary expenses.

All the best Duane, we would be pleased to work with you again.

When we called Duane to come by, we were ready to rework our old front yard into a new low maintenance landscape. We gave Duane as much leeway as we could and to be honest, we weren’t sure how the landscape would turn out. Duane took control of our space and completely designed and reworked our space into and welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. We really love the way it all turned out, and even people passing by often talk to us and comment how much they like it.

Duane was a real pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend Duane for any Landscape Solutions you need for your space-new or old.
— – Sophie and Gerry.
From the beginning Duane listened and incorporated my ideas & specifications, while using his expertise to design and guide the garden plan. Everything turned out fantastic and I am extremely thrilled with the end result. The garden is incredible and our neighbours, family, and friends admire the work.

Now that the garden is complete and semi-mature, if I ever have any questions, concerns or queries Duane is always accessible and provides answer in a timely fashion.
We have maintained contact with him subsequent to project completion and appreciate Duane’s ongoing support. I don’t hesitate to recommend Duane to anyone.
— – Maria and Jacek Piotrowski.
We hired Duane to help move us “out of the box” in conceptualizing our landscape design. We found him to listen well, to integrate his & our ideas and to provide a product that really ended up where we wanted to be. In addition, he put us in touch with a Landscaper who implemented Duane’s design “with enhancements”. Both Duane and the crew have worked well together to result in a landscape design that’s unique. We’re proud of our product and would recommend both again.
— – Bob Strachan
I have no problem endorsing the work done for our company! The design work was better than satisfactory. Not only the end design product, but the working relationship developed through out the duration of the project was excellent.
— – Mel Stevens
We endorse Duane Ensing Landscape Design. He provided expert advice, and spent a lot of time and care, in helping us choose appropriate plants for our newly constructed home. We are happy with the results of his planning and would recommend his services to others.
