I want you to know how pleased I am with my landscaping that you did at the end of May. After a few blips due to watering problems etc., the lawn has taken hold so well and is now absolutely beautiful. I think back to the first days of the project when you were hauling away all that terrible “top soil”– actually I guess it was almost all clay and I realized the scope of the job. You and your crew were amazing–quite apart from doing the job properly, you and they were a delight to work with. You all worked constantly and knew what you were doing. Any little questions I might have had were answered quickly, and if there was any action to be taken, it was done immediately.
It was very reassuring to see how well you and Ryan Jones, my landscaping designer, worked together. I understand that you have worked on many projects together and have the same high standards. I have had many compliments on my front landscaping and queries as to who did the project. I always heartily recommend you and Ryan. Please feel free to give my name and address to any prospective clients who may be wanting to see “the finished product” of your work. I will have nothing except words of praise for your expertise.
Again many thanks for a job well done and all best wishes, Mary Snack

It was late Summer 2012 and we just finished a large renovation. Our backyard was destroyed and we didn’t want to be faced with a mess come Spring. We decided to contact our local Landscape Supply Store to get their professional advice. They suggested we work with a Landscaper and gave us the names of three companies they had worked with in the past. They highly recommended Justin Smith – a young entrepreneur who had recently ventured out on his own to form JM Smith Landscaping. From our initial phone call to the first time we met Justin in person we knew we had found a landscaper that we could trust and work with in the coming years. With a very tight budget we opted to start small and have sod laid and the areas around our large maple trees edged and mulched. After living through a construction site for the past 7 months we were anxious to have a green backyard. We were extremely impressed with the results that we are currently working with JM Smith Landscaping to design our backyard oasis.

My daughter and I moved into a new home last summer which incorporated a number of accessible design aspects to meet her mobility needs. This year our goal was to determine how we could both utilize the backyard given the accessibility challenges. We were extremely fortunate to find J.M. Smith Landscaping and owner Justin Smith who worked closely with us to design a practical yet beautiful backyard space. We really enjoyed working with Justin as he helped us navigate the numerous options available to us, all the while incorporating our wishes to create an enjoyable, usable family space which included a deck, ramping, landscaping, fencing and a beautiful inter-lock patio. His suggestion to use TREX composite for our decking to help to keep the maintenance at a minimum was truly appreciated as I was not aware of these new products. J.M. Landscaping truly transformed our backyard, meeting not only our overall needs and wishes but completing the job in the timelines discussed and on budget. We thoroughly enjoyed working in partnership with Justin and his team of professionals and would highly recommend them to friends, family members and of course of neighbours who watched the transformation and are still in awe! A wonderful company to deal with!

Dear Justin: We just want to tell you again how happy are with the landscaping & deck that you built for us last summer. We really appreciate how you created a great layout for us while still letting us have a lot of input with the features we’d like to put into it. The fish pond & bubbling rock was a great feature of your design that transformed our backyard into an enjoyable space for lounging & hosting guest in good weather. All this while helping us keep within our budget. We are just coming out of the long winter and we can’t wait to enjoy our backyard & deck again. Your quality work & professionalism come highly recommended.
Regards & Take care,

During the spring of 2011, I hired J.M. Smith Landscaping to build a stone walkway/patio. The job was done on time, to specification and on budget. Through the process, Justin kept me apprised of workdays, issues, concerns and material delivery. Despite a very wet spring, Justin and his crew met all the requirements of this job.
Although my main concern was appearance, Justin was careful to show me the necessity of a careful drainage plan, proximity of stones to the vinyl siding and most importantly, he used a creative solution to cover the septic tank openings while still allowing me access to the tanks.
I highly recommend J.M. Smith Landscaping to you for any outdoor work you may be considering. Please feel free to contact me at (705) 799-0713 if you have any questions.

So thank you for creating something that gives daily delights to the people that ends up with the result of your hard work!!
