Construction Project Management

A landscape project often has many moving parts. John can help navigate the process with you by overseeing the project and ensuring workflow, structural as well as design integrity, and foreseeing potential issues before they arise.

North Vancouver Garden Consult


Sometimes a customer wants to tackle smaller projects by themselves, and is just looking for ideas or advice. I’m available to give you the benefit of John’s experience for a flat or hourly fee.

Experience Matters

Not all projects are alike. Whether it’s a brainstorming session, detailed drawings, or construction management, John will tailor our services to suit your needs.

The Process

From an hour of Q&A with a seasoned pro, to detailed drawings to on site management, John will tailor services to suit your needs.

1 – initial consult

We start with a questionnaire to learn some more about your vision for your space, followed by a short conversation by phone or email. If you like what you hear, John will come see your space in person, and spend an hour applying his technical knowledge with your vision.

2 – concept drawing

Armed with a thorough understanding of your vision as well the characteristics of your site, John will produce a plan that ticks all the boxes, and illustrates the features and layout of your new outdoor paradise.

3 – working drawing

From the concept stage, we proceed in greater detail, including dimensions, material specifications and the like to make your project construction ready.

4 – planting plan

The icing on the cake. Tailored to your personal vision, John will supply you with a plan and list of plants to complete your paradise and make your space the envy of the neighbourhood.

You can get started with an INITIAL CONSULT for only $99. Schedule a call today to bring your landscape dreams to life!

I met John a few years ago when he was site superintendent of the landscape project of my new home. I found him to be knowledgeable, personable, and well organized. He made sure everything proceeded in an orderly fashion, while being communicative and receptive to my questions. I really enjoyed being in his company and loved his honesty and humour. I would not hesitate to recommend you hire John for a smooth, well-run project.
