Peter Owen is a talented landscape architect who we had the pleasure of working with to design our backyard. When trying to decide on professionals to design and construct our backyard, we initially thought about going with a design+build or straight-up construction firm. However, all the companies we interviewed fell short because they were not able to understand or complement our vision to create a design that we absolutely loved.

For this reason, I am glad that we worked with Peter to design our backyard and then bringing in a construction firm to execute the design. Peter brings imagination, creativity, passion and energy to the project. Many times we felt that he was invested in our property as we were. His attention to detail, including material selection, selection of plant material and lighting design, translates to a “wow” factor that would not have existed otherwise.

Peter also worked closely with the contractors to oversee and guide the build, so that it would remain true to the design. He was great at communication and working within deadlines. On all fronts, he surpassed our expectations.

We are working with Peter again on enhancements to our backyard (Phase 2). We will continue to work with him on other outdoor projects in the future and we are happy to provide our heartfelt recommendation to others considering using his services.

Toronto Landscape Architect Peter Owen’s creative insights unlocked the hidden potential of our cottage property. His masterfully drawn plan has provided us with a blueprint to move forward! Without a doubt, it pays to engage the services of an architect prior to working with a contractor.

“We hired Peter on the advice of our architect, who had seen his work. Our garden is on the edge of a ravine in downtown Toronto, and we wanted a landscape plan that connected the house to its surroundings without being at odds with the traditional design of the house. Peter met with us several times to understand our functional requirements and the constraints of the lot before presenting a thoughtful plan. He was very patient and worked through all our questions and concerns until we were completely satisfied.”

My wife and I hired Peter Owen with the idea of transforming our new retirement home's backyard into an outdoor oasis. We proposed an aggressive wish list of features that we didn't know fit the smallish space. After several meetings to talk about potential elements ( pool,hot tub, fireplace, decks, etc.) Peter set out to create a design that has incorporated all of out wishes, in a thoughtful, well planned way that respects the environmental constraints of the site, and will be a transformational extension of our indoor living space. We specifically chose to hire a professional landscape architect to create the design to ensure that it reflected an overall integration of the elements in the best possible way. We are most pleased with Peter's professionalism and design acumen. The project is currently under construction and we can't wait to enjoy the finished results.

Peter interpreted our initial concept and developed a beautiful design that exceeded our expectations. He paid attention to the detail, the overall balance and scale and we ended up with a stunning result. Peter sourced some great add-ons and fixtures that really brought the project together. We were very happy with the outcome and would recommend Peter to anyone looking for a creative landscape designer.

Love, love, love what Peter has created for us at our Haliburtan cottage. First, was a beautiful overall landscape plan with thoughtful little getaway spots for patios and gardens. Second came the spectacular plan for a new sauna build and again, Peter created a beauitfully organic, private space that is a little oasis in our forest. Peter is thoughtful, creative and a master at working within a space to create uniqueness and beauty.
