“Bedard Landscape and Design was reassuring and professional from the start. Having worked now on our second landscape design with Vera Bedard, was an easy and professional process. Time frames were met, detailed plans that included all aspects of what we wanted including a planting plan was prepared giving us our “staycation backyard” yet again. Great detailed work!!”

Vera….good morning…..”Pleased” would be an understatement……..we are ecstatic about how nice it looks. Being a business owner …..and a pretty picky one at that ……it’s usually not too difficult for me to find flaws if design, planning or workmanship have not been up to snuff.


Despite the unusually long duration of it, not your doing of course, we can’t be more pleased. More often than not…the final product does not match up to the expectations created by the design and drawings. In this case the meticulous details of your design were, much to our surprise, executed almost without compromise. And we credit a large part of that to you and your ongoing oversight of the project. There is absolutely NO question in our minds….that without your first hand involvement…the project would not have come out the way it did.

Thank you for the excellent design.  You took the time to really understand our requirements and tastes which resulted in an amazing final product.  We were very impressed with your knowledge and versatility in various construction/design techniques, including timber, concrete, and stonework. Your expert knowledge of plants is reflected in a first-class planting plan that considers light, space and colour.  You also took the time to answer all of our questions professionally and with authority, often providing examples from you wealth of experience in the industry.  We are thrilled with the design and the superb service.
Vera designed a backyard for me that fit my needs better than I could have imagined. She is extremely  patient, efficient, knowledgeable and open to my comments and suggestions.
I have recommended her to my friend without hesitation. Both of us  are really happy and enjoyed working with her.

Vera is extremely professional, knowledgeable and a delight to work with.  She was able to take our ideas for both hard and soft scape materials and transform them into an unbelieveable backdrop to complete our newly built dream home.  Thanks so much Vera!  If we ever build again, which is quite possible, we will be sure to use you again.

We are so thrilled with our lovely garden!  You were able to take our ideas of what we would like to see when we look out our windows, or sit in our back yard, and turn it into a reality!  While we knew what we’d like to see, we had no clue what actual plants would look best where, and what would be best for our climate, location and lifestyle – that’s where your expertise really came in handy.  Now, 6 months later, when everything is starting to bloom for the spring and summer season, our garden looks so spectacular.  The vast knowledge you have of the plant world is amazing, and the professional drawings and plant lists you supplied helped not only us to have an idea of what the garden and landscape would eventually look like, it was a step by step plan for our landscapers to co-ordinate with their suppliers, and then for them to put everything in place according to plan.  Again, thank you so very much for coming up with what our neighbours say is the lovliest garden on our block!

” We hired Bedard Landscaping design to prepare a landscaping plan for our new home in Richmond . We have a general contractor building the house and included in the design is a basic landscaping plan that, for example, had the entire South facing 3000 sq ft. back yard covered in sod .We wanted to enhance landscaping of the back yard and Vera prepared a detailed landscape design that meets our particular design needs including a greenhouse, vegetable planting beds, seasonal flower bed and larger trees and shrubs all designed to create visual interest throughout the year. Vera also identified which of our existing plants should be saved for relocation.The plan will be given to a landscaping contractor once the building is completed.
Vera was very helpful and we are very pleased with the design – she was professional and knowledgeable in the work she did for us.

To whom it may concern:

We are delighted with the professional service from Bedard Landscape Design. Vera listened to our wish list, added her artistic design, and came up with an initial proposal. After making a couple of modifications to fit our specific requests, she came back with a set of comprehensive drawings for tendering. She also supervised the construction process. We are very happy with how our yard turned out, and have received many compliments from our friends.

Vera spent a lot of time on the initial consultation to understand our design objectives and what we wanted to accomplish with our landscaping project. She asked us lots of questions to help us figure out our end product. We gave her many criteria to incorporate. She took all this information and pulled it together into a plan that we were able to hand off to a landscape installer so it all came to life! We are very happy with the end result of Vera’s design and have received lots of compliments from our neighbours! Thank you Vera.

I was introduced to Vera by Houston Landscapes, who spoke very highly of her designs, her abilities, and her professionalism.
Vera did a design for my home’s backyard. She met with me on site and took the time to make sure that she fully understood what I wanted and what my particular issues were.
She promptly produced a great plan. And when she met with me to go over it, I noted that she had been able to translate all my issues into a plan that I very much like.
If you are planning to make soft or hard landscaping changes to your current property, or need a landscape plan for a new home construction, I have no hesitation in recommending Vera.
I heartily agree with Houston Landscapes, am happy that she was recommended to me, and am looking forward to enjoying my new backyard.

Vera is adept at listening to the wishes of her clients, skillfully designing areas that are functional and a pleasure to be in, work in and view. She works in a variety of styles and is both flexible and knowledgeable when designing for her clients. We are very pleased with the work that Vera Bedard has done for us.

Dear Vera

I am very pleased with your design for the landscaping of our home in West Vancouver. I appreciate the time you took to explain to us the different options we can have for our design.
I also appreciate the pointers you have given us regarding placing some planters for our existing patio. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who may have similar projects like ours.

I wish you success in your future endeavours.

Working with Vera was a professional process from start to finish. She met with us to discuss our landscape vision and listened to our ideas carefully. Her landscape designs brought all our ideas into fruition. The details were amazing and all her measurements were extremely accurate. The comprehensive list and design of all the plants she suggested, were evidence of her high level of knowledge and expertise. Her designs were well thought out, detailed and comprehensive for our contractors to work from. We appreciated the professional service and product that Vera provided.

Thank you Vera for helping us create our vision for our outdoor living space. We are thrilled with final results. It was a pleasure working with you.

Working with Vera has been a pleasure and a comfortable experience. I was able to express my desires for our garden and landscape layout an Vera was able to provide a plan that was inspiring. We have recommended Vera to friends and plan to continue doing so.

Hi Vera,

I just wanted to provide you with some feedback… we poured the cement walkway, brought in the rock retaining wall, made the longboard retaining walls, filled in the yard with new soil, transplanted some plants and bought all the plants you suggested and finally just put the sod in. We are more than pleased with everything – and I just wanted to say Thank you… You really helped us to make our house a home and we love all of the changes. Can’t wait for everything to mature now…

All the best,
