What Our Customers Are Saying
My wife and I used Martin and Judy to recreate our front and rear yards in 2018 and we were very impressed with how well they both turned out! Honestly, we really didn't know "what" we wanted but knew we wanted something unique. Martin was able to help us come up with a playful and creative design that worked really well for us that we never would have thought of on our own. His knowledge about landscaping, shrubs, trees and design is vast and really helpful when planning a design. We always received friendly service and prompt responses to questions we had or changes we wanted to see made. It was a significant investment in our property which will certainly pay off when we are ready to sell, but also has added so much "living value" to the place we call home. We'd had other landscapers come up with designs in the past but they all seemed cookie-cutter and rigid, something we'd seen way too many times before. Martin's approach to design is very unique and intuitive, visually pleasing, while at the same time remaining practical. He never tried to oversell us on anything and we actually came in well under budget on our spend which allowed us to add a beautiful and functional patio in the rear we hadn't previously planned. The pocket landscapes we were given add so much life to our yards and have given us something to nurture and watch unfold as they develop. Passersby are constantly letting us know how beautiful our front yard looks now. I thoroughly recommend Urban Cottage Landscapes - Five stars all around!

Working with Martin was a special experience, he is a deep listener and his style is to create a landscape that you will personally connect too. I initially consulted with Martin to get his advice on what trees to plant in my front yard. He came up with an intuitive "design"/idea that far exceeded my expectations. Martin shaped our garden to be a space that felt much more like home! I highly recommend working with Martin and Judy to help you to transform your outdoor space to something that you will truly love, because it will be a unique creation to suit you!
