ULC originally designed my terrace in 2005. They were able to synthesize my different needs and create a comprehensive concept that has allowed me to enjoy the space for many years. As time has passed and my needs have changed they have helped me re-imagine the space and cost effectively implement changes that have the kept the garden a vital part of my everyday life.
We are so happy with the job that Urban Landscape Concepts did with our backyard landscape design. With three little girls we needed to maximize the usability of the yard and ULC came up with a plan allows us to entertain with family and friends while giving the girls a fun space to run around in. Just as important as all the possibilities they presented us was steering us away from the mistakes we could have made with the yard. Josh was honest, reliable, on time and on budget.
After years of neglect our backyard was a dark overgrown mess. With a really tight budget other companies we met with wouldn’t even give us a proposal. Josh’s attitude was to look at our budget as a challenge to overcome and while he set proper expectations for us he assured us there was a design solution for our backyard. Josh designed a bluestone patio we can sit and relax in surrounded by a mix of plants that provides visual interest all year long. We are so glad to have reclaimed this outdoor space as it has become a focal point in our leisure time.
From the initial consultation I had a very strong feeling ULC was the right landscape design company for us. They asked me question after question in order to form a sense of what my family wanted to get from our outdoor space and explained the positive characteristics of our terrace we could utilize in the design. Josh and Athena shared their vast knowledge of plant material in coming up with a planting plan so we would have plants that were not only pretty but fit our maintenance appetite. Their craftsmen did high quality woodwork building us a deck, pergola, dining seating and table. I can’t say more about the professionalism, knowledge and integrity of the ULC team!
I don’t know much about gardens, plants, or soil, but I know that the team at ULC does. Not only were they able to create a rooftop landscape design that is both beautiful and functional but they have taken care of it for me for many years so I can simply enjoy it without any hassles.
In a reasonable time Josh presented us with a design we really loved and was willing to make the minor changes we wanted as time passed. The installation team was at our house every day from the start date until the project was complete. They were on time, professional, cleaned up after themselves and did high quality work. We are so grateful for the amazing garden they created for us.
The roof garden ULC designed and built for my family has increased our quality of life immeasurably. They made the process easy and took the time to walk me through any part I wasn’t sure about. They were able to make sense of all my various ideas, edit and fuse them into a cohesive design. ULC continues to maintain our garden space keeping it in peak condition so we can enjoy it whenever we want.
After finishing the more than year long process of renovating our townhouse we realized that the planting beds that wrapped around our home were completely barren and quite the eyesore. Josh was able to develop a planting plan suited to our particular location that is beautiful to look at all year long. He installed a drip irrigation system so we never have to worry about it getting enough water. ULC was great to work with, accessible, always willing to take the time to answer any questions I had and knowledgeable; it’s obvious they really care about what they do. We love our garden and get tons of complements from people in the neighborhood.
When I called Urban Landscape Concepts for help, my backyard was completely overgrown with weeds over my head. I didn’t have a large budget but Athena and Josh were able to design a garden space that was affordable, easy to maintain, looks great and provides me with my own private oasis in the city.
