Landscaping Design by Maria Beers
Hi, I am Maria Beers. Over 30 years ago I started a landscape business in the Netherlands with my husband. We designed, installed and maintained many yards, until we moved to Canada.
I love designing yards, using colours, textures and shapes. My experience as a landscaper gives me a solid base to create something that is practical and beautiful. I can help you plan the project and give practical tips about the process and how to be cost effective. I customize every detail to meet your landscape goals and take it a step further to give you something that you might not even know is possible!
Book one of the following landscaping services with Maria Beers
Landscaping Consultation ~ 1 Hour Consultation $99
Discuss changes you need to make to your yard or if you have a blank slate and you're not sure where to start.
This option is great if you have just a small part of your yard or garden that you're redoing or landscaping.
Landscaping Planning ~ $189 for the first hour & $99 for each additional hour
After giving you a phone call to better understand your needs, Maria will begin drafting some landscaping plans for you. The two of you will then meet for a appointment, and refine these plans even further, until you walk away with the ultimate plans for your personal oasis.
Great for new builds, larger landscaping projects, and for when you just want a little more help.
When you book your appointment for a landscape plan, you will be asked to complete a short checklist. If you are just booking a landscape consultation and not a landscape plan, some of these checklist items may not be necessary. Our landscaper designer will let you know.
This is what we need in order to prepare for your visit:
- Your Real Property Report (the lot plan you get when you buy your house).
- Photos of your yard (even when it is brand new). Stand on your deck and take a series of photos or a panorama of all that you can see from there. Then stand on the ground in front of your deck and do the same. Then stand opposite the deck against the fence and take pictures from the house and the deck. If landscaping the front yard, do the same but for the front yard. Take pictures of all issues that you would like addressed. (e.g. slope, drainage, privacy)
- If you have photos from other yards or found landscaping photos in magazines or on the internet that you like, we would like to see those too.
- If you bought a new home and have regulations from your developer or neighborhood association, we will need to see those too.
You can e-mail everything to us or you can bring all your documents on a memory stick to the Information Centre, in the Enjoy Centre.
After we have looked at your information, we will call you for a short telephone interview.
