Testimonials

"We are so happy with the wonderful work Groundcover did in improving our backyard. The new space they created for us has quickly become our favourite place to spend time with our friends and family. They were professional, affordable and the crew was extremely friendly. We wish we had hired them years ago!"
Jackie Durnford



"Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for the outstanding job on our project. From start to finish we were very impressed by the professional yet friendly service exhibited by you and your team. The finished product far exceeded our expectations.Thanks again,"
Tom and Wendy Sabean

"...We are so very pleased with the work that you and your crew have done for us. The workmanship and attention to detail is exceptional. The enlarged and additional beds are lovely. Your crew always found time to discuss the project as they were working. We appreciate the site visits that you fit into your schedule for us, along with your promptness to answering emails and phone calls. We will happily recommend your service to friends and neighbours."

"The crew from Groundcover took all of the stress out of my landscaping project. They kept us well informed as the work progressed, they answered my endless stream of questions, and they tidied up the work site at the end of each day. The on-site crew were very fussy, especially when it came to grades and levels, and they were very good at identifying possible problems such as where water will flow once the grades are changed. Once an issue was identified they then came up with an affordable and effective solution. We are very satisfied with the end product and have no hesitation recommending Russell and his crew."
Michael and Betty Ann

"Russell and his team did some stonework in both a front and back garden of my home this summer.  The work was exceptional on a number of levels: workmanship, efficiency, honesty ( as in they did what they said they would do, when they said they’d do it), and integrity.  From my experience as a homeowner for 30 years, it is rare to have work done exactly as agreed to — it is even more rare when the employees take it upon themselves to go the extra mile because they take pride in what they do. Russell’s team made sure the work exceeded my expectations."
Many, many thanks, Carolyn

"First, I want to thank Russell. I immediately felt comfortable with him as we discussed my needs and the project grew in size. The staff was amazing. Mark & Angela were exceptionally courteous and professional at all times. They truly wanted me to be satisfied with every step of this lengthy project as we transformed both the front and back into a more useable and eye-appealing property. I started off with a french drain that had long-since failed on a very steep property, two self-made gardens in the back, and a relatively barren, poorly-soiled, steep front yard, with concrete steps pulling away from the front of the house. I am now left with a well-functioning drainage system, extra living space with a beautiful flag stone addition to the side of my back deck, and extended and well tended back gardens.The piece de resistance -- the front yard. My goodness --- my neighbours thought I needed a ribbon cutting ceremony upon completion of the project. The steps and retaining wall are exceptional and the fully landscaped terrace is beautiful.Angela & Mark made sure I was happy with the selection of the perennials, even though some were challenging to locate. I no longer have a difficult-to-mow steep property, but rather a magnificently-terraced front yard. Thank you so much. I highly endorse you, your staff, and their outstanding dedication to their work."
Sarah Samoluk

"I would like to thank Janet, Angela, Brooks, and Mark for transforming an otherwise uninspiring garden into one that is a joy to come home to and work in. I was immensely impressed by their professionalism, hard work, the expert advice they provided on all aspects of the project, and a concern to ensure that the garden became one that I had envisioned. They spent the time at the end of each day to put away their equipment, clean the soil off the driveway and otherwise ensure that the property remained unencumbered so that I was not tripping over garden rakes or chain saws! You, yourself, listened to my concerns and ideas, as well as provided your own expertise and translated them at a most reasonable cost into a garden that will give me endless enjoyment for years to come. I will not hesitate to engage your services in the future. Thank you all for a job well done! bravo zulu."
Lesley Williams

"We love the design; it changes the whole look of the entrance to the house. We were highly impressed by the quality of the work provided by your crew. They were not only helpful and friendly but they were also very professional in the way they went about their work. We have had numerous complimentary comments from friends and neighbours and would recommend Groundcover to anyone who asks."
Lynn & Andy Manning

"In Feburary we purchased a brand new property located in lake of the woods, Hubley, NS. Although the house was perfect for us, the large plot was completely rough with no landscaping. We approached GroundCover with no idea what landscaping we wanted. They promptly designed a plan and supplied us with various quotations to meet our needs, which we were very pleased with. The team of workers were professional and diligent and they transformed our property to something that we really enjoy coming home to. The overall quality of the work was very high and we are immensely pleased with the final product. I would strongly recommend their work and we would definitely use their services again in the future."
Mark Reed, Hubley

"I absolutely love my landscaping!!!! Thank you so much. Your crew is amazing! They are very professional, friendly and accommodating. I’m so impressed with how they paid attention to detail, offered suggestions for future planting and the clean up was great!!! I would certainly recommend Groundcover to everyone. The neighbours are all talking about how great my property looks. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
