Although Courtland does provide Landscape Design services, there are times when the client has already completed the design process with another Landscape Designer or Architect and requests our services for a quality install. The Glover’s had a plan in place as well as a general contractor overseeing the project as a whole and Courtland was hired to install the gardens, although the scope of work quickly expanded as our crews began to work.
Although the original design was complete with a planting plan multiple changes throughout the construction process changed bed shapes and as a relationship grew with the client she made a few preferences clear and before the end of the project an entirely new planting plan had been put in place. The priority was put on incorporating native species within a very particular colour scheme.

All new structures were installed in the backyard including a unique clothesline with natural stone step landing platform and oversized gabion stone pillars. These pillars matched the pergola type structure that was installed on the new concrete patio. The project has a one-of-a-kind industrial style that won’t be seen in any other backyard. Utilizing many different materials such as chainmail screens for shade, large steel beams and wood rafters to tie back to the wood decking.
