“I highly recommend Annette and Specialty Gardens. Annette helped us to determine our landscaping goals and then translated our goals into a practical and manageable plan. It was a miracle. Our yard changed from a boring utilitarian and demanding square of grass to a beautiful and enjoyable haven. Bravo Annette!”
“Very easy to work with. Understand my need of a zero-maintenance yard."
“We would like to thank Specialty Gardens and more specifically Annette Vierling for the excellent work she did on our landscape plans for our new home and surroundings. We were looking for a more maintenance free yard and she certainly accomplished that while still making our yard the envy of the neighborhood.”
– Murray & Patricia Pratt (Resort Village of Katepwa, SK)
“Specialty Gardens has been a pleasure to work with, very professional, efficient, and thorough from start to finish. We love our yard which started as a barren area and thanks to Annette for all her patience, listening and many, many, promptly returned phone calls, we spend hours enjoying our well planned and planted yard and will for many years to come. Thanks, Annette, for the headache free yard.”
– Valerie and Allen Rose
“My backyard has a very steep incline along the entire width of it which caused me much anxiety. Specialty Gardens redesigned the yard ensuring that the changes made blended with the existing landscape. The redesign was done as cost effectively as possible, the foliage planted added color and, best of all, it lowered the maintenance factor by 60%.”
– Brigitte Bertmann, Grande Cache, AB
“Not only does Annette have extensive knowledge of local plants and landscaping materials, but she also has a wonderful ability to combine them in creative and artistic ways, to create an outdoor environment that is exactly what I was hoping for. The plans were easy to read and to follow and were in fact a work of art in and of themselves. The interview process was thorough, and she took into account my budget, my lack of a green thumb and our lifestyle issues like pets, children and unpleasant neighbors. All in all, I am very pleased with my garden and would recommend Specialty Gardens to anyone looking to improve their yard and garden."
– Christine Whitelaw
“Specialty Gardens and Annette Vierling were a joy to work with! We have developed our yard as per her design and have a continuous flow of compliments. We enjoy our yard to the utmost and have nothing but a great amount of respect for Annette and her abilities and talents.“
“In the summer of 2009 ...Annette ("Specialty Gardens") has truly provided a "professional" product and facilitated the amalgamation of both our needs in our landscaping endeavors. A representation of her work is clearly evident and now on-display in our back yard. My wife wanted something "elegant yet informal" and Annette exceeded our demands. She is highly recommended if you want someone to make "your" vision a reality. From the earliest "what do you want in your yard" conversational stages though to the final "Professional Landscape Plans", she paints your picture. Annette exceeded our expectations and we are quite pleased with our results!"
