We do more than landscape design. We bring our best ideas to the table and know how to deliver them.

Our forte starts with the consultation and the ability to read the individual clients needs. We offer you more than a great design on paper,  by coming forward with solutions and having the technical knowledge to make them happen. We are happy to manage an entire crew of subcontractors or to get it done solo – all project sizes considered.

Site / Project Management

Experienced working on building and construction sites Paul from Terra Firma ensures a project completes safely, on time, and within budget. We can monitor and direct contractor activities from start to finish and direct and oversee various contractors and subcontractors from site preparation and foundation laying to the final touches.

Pauls expertise proved he could take on the role of Site Manager, this encompassed organisation of all project subcontractors, site safety and security, management of third-party suppliers for furniture and cabinetry, liaison with DCA Architects, Yvette Jay Interior Design and direct reporting to the client. Paul also undertook implementation of remaining items required by the Territorial Authority to close out Code of Compliance.

Paul was a great asset to the project and helped to bring the build to the finish line in a professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him in this role for future projects.”

DCA Architects

“Paul oversaw the project management of a significant renovation of my lakefront property. It was a lengthy multi-layered project with a lot of plates spinning simultaneously and with more than its fair share of challenges – not least of all Covid. In short, Paul was excellent. His work ethic, absolute reliability, attention to detail, “get it done” problem-solving attitude, and relentless positivity resulted in a very successful project outcome. I can’t recommend Paul enough to anyone who needs project management expertise.”

Landscape Design

With a passion for the earth and plants, plus a natural gift for envisaging the completed work of art, Paul discovered early on in his landscaping career that he could make a difference to people’s living environments.

” I have no hesitation in recommending Paul who I engaged to transform my front yard. From the design process where he listened to my ideas and offered suggestions making sure I was really happy, to keeping me informed at all times. I was impressed with his knowledge of plants that were suitable to the area.

The project included working in with various services including electricians, ultra fast, plumbers/gas block and stone layers, and the erection of pillars and balustrades. Working in with the other tradespeople was no trouble to Paul. It has been a pleasure dealing with Paul who finished the job on time.”
