“We are thrilled with the improved appearance and curb appeal of our front yard; a look which was designed and implemented by Scott McLeod of Fabulous Flower Beds.
Scott assessed the potential for our front yard, presented options within our budget and proceeded to guide us through the process with hands-on coaching and participation.
The transformation is striking and impressive, and is garnering positive comments from friends and neighbours daily. It is a versatile and pleasing garden design, which will allow for seasonal updates.
Being former non-gardeners, the changes have created a sense of pride and accomplishment because of the knowledge Scott has shared with us. He doesn’t waver or compromise on the quality of his work, but presents ideas and a path the homeowner can select to obtain the desired results.
Scotts' expertise, attention to detail, friendly approach, and dependability are all reasons why we strongly recommend Scott McLeod and Fabulous Flower Beds.”

Scott at Fabulous Flower Beds did an amazing job with my planters. He was very fast and professional with his services and was most certainly accommodating to our hours of operation. I am very pleased I chose Fabulous Flower Beds and his work added that perfect touch to the patio."

"In 2010, my wife Marion and I recently took possession of our new home in South Surrey after moving from Alberta.
Over the past 26 years, the yard in our new home had become overgrown with various plants, shrubs and trees plus there was a large old shed in the backyard which limited our useable space. In addition, part of our yard was sloping toward the house and the soil underneath was mostly clay which all contributed to poor drainage and an unhealthy lawn, not to mention the issue of potential moisture problems around our foundation. There were also some very large tree stumps close to our back door that were rotting and attracting ants. Furthermore, the fence surrounding our back yard was old and unattractive and in need of repair. Generally, there was a sense of clutter everywhere which detracted from the overall look of our home. We knew we needed to make some major changes but we didn’t know how and where to start.
To proceed with our pending project we consulted with Scott McLeod of Fabulous Flower Beds. We quickly found Scott to be invaluable in providing us with a much needed vision and common sense plan that encompassed a realistic estimate of costs and a timeline of events. Having recently retired on a fixed income, and as a bit of a Do-It-Yourself fanatic, we found Scott very open to accommodating our wishes to participate in the work to help reduce cost. Through his mentorship and coaching, we quickly organized specialized contractors that were recommended by Fabulous Flower Beds. We found them to be ethical, competitive and they produced great work in a timely fashion.
Scott soundly demonstrated his overall knowledge in landscape design, project management and was well versed in how to source all the right materials and services to complete our project in a manner that has produced an exceptional result. Through his dedication to our project, Scott clearly exhibited his personal hard work, commitment, loyalty and friendship. We much appreciated his regular follow up and crisp communication skills with everyone involved. We also appreciated his sensitivity to the concerns of our neighbours, particularly given the tight access to our yard and the logistical complications associated with living on a busy street.
Thank you very much Scott for helping us realize our landscaping dreams. With our recent backyard make over, we now have a space that we can use and enjoy for many years to come. Without question, we believe our home has increased in value as a result of the work completed. It has been quite a transformation.
It would be a pleasure to recommend Fabulous Flower Beds and Scott McLeod to anyone looking for a professional landscaping company in this area."

A rarity these days: Our initial phone message was returned within an hour; Scott called on us exactly on time the next day to discuss our project; a proposal was received within 24 hours; every stage of the project started exactly as promised; all of Scott’s sub-trades were extremely courteous, professional and on time; the work itself was of a very high quality – no corners were cut; Scott continued to maintain an interest in our garden and assist us after the project was completed.
We were extremely pleased with the end result and would have no hesitation in recommending Fabulous Flower Beds to others.

"Scott recently completed the transformation of our front yard and we couldn't be happier with the end result. He understood our vision & what we were trying to achieve & successfully created it for us.
The existing mature landscape design created by the previous owner was already quite lovely but we wanted to redesign the garden to reflect us & our own personal style. I had met with a few other landscape designers before I had met Scott but after our initial consultation I knew he was somebody I wanted to work with based on his professionalism & knowledge. During the process Scott was in constant communication with us & we really appreciated his suggestions & tips on what plant materials were best for our property and its’ exposure as our gardening knowledge & experience is quite minimal.
The project was started & completed within the time frame he committed to and he left everything immaculate upon completion.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scott to anyone and look forward to working with him again when we are ready to transform our backyard."

"Working with Scott McLeod was a positive experience from beginning to end. He helped us see the potential of our front yard, yet he was also quite willing to work within our budget. Scott was very hands on and alleviated all of our concerns by coordinating everything from irrigation installation to soil delivery. His network of contacts made it a very seamless process. When it came to the final landscape installation and design, his attention to detail and expertise was evident every step of the way. We look forward to working with him again in the future!"

"Scott McLeod, owner of Fabulous Flower Beds, has been a tremendous help and inspiration throughout our recent landscaping project.
We were at a loss to figure out how we could improve the appearance of our front yard after installing a new fence. Several plants had to be removed and we did not know where to start.
Scott provided us with various landscape design ideas and options that would help us solve our dilemma. With Scotts' guidance, and hands on assistance, a new single bed was created, enlarged and reshaped from an existing set of different flower beds. The result is a much improved design that has softened the look of our front yard while adding significant street appeal in a way that is complimentary to our home.
Scott suggested that we should make our decisions one step at a time and he has encouraged us to take a step back, slow the process down and observe after each new phase of the project before we decide what should be done for the next phase. So far, this has proved to be the right approach for us. It has become clear that Scotts' suggestions are well thought out and that they are based on his understanding of sound design principles.
Scotts' landscaping knowledge, his creative vision and meticulous attention to detail have helped us create a new design for our yard that we think is quite attractive. We would highly recommend Scott for anyone undertaking a landscaping project."

"We've sold our house. Yeah! Your landscaping genius definitely helped. I've had so many neighbours comment on how great it looks and several have asked me for your contact information.
Thank you again for everything and I will definitely continue to recommend you as often as I can."
Audrey Mitchell - Pitt Meadows
Scott was able to take my boring front yard and turn it into something spectacular. He has a vision for creating a beautiful landscape design. I have received nothing but positive feedback from my neighbours and family ever since the project was completed. I enjoyed working with Scott right from the initial consultation to the final day of the installation. I found he was very knowledgeable, task orientated and meticulous about the work that he did. He was able to select several varieties of trees and plants and he helped me place them in the correct area of the beds to create just the right look for my home. Throughout the project, Scott kept me fully informed and was very accepting of my input. I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone that was looking for a professional landscaping company.

Working with Scott McLeod, owner of Fabulous Flower Beds, was an awesome experience! Our front yard looks amazing. There have been continual positive comments.
Scott designed our yard to enhance our house. He is just a work horse.
The expense in having a professional help us with our landscaping was totally offset by the great discounts
on plant material so it was actually more economical to use Scott then if we had gone on our own!
Working with Scott was an awesome learning, productive experience.
We would recommend Fabulous Flower Beds to anyone.
Jim and Cindy Morrison - Langley ( Walnut Grove )
Scott worked on two of our properties. The nature and scope of the work on each location was very different. He was meticulous and organized while generating honest assessments regarding each property and its unique needs. Scott kept us updated regularly with specifics. He set detailed time lines and remained on target. The trees, plants and garden work have enhanced our properties. We are very happy with both the practical and aesthetic results.

I have worked with Scott on a number of occasions as a hired contractor and I have been very impressed with his ability to efficiently manage a project. Most landscape designers seem to be too rushed when they are on site while Scott takes the time to be sure that everyone is on the same page. Scott develops a great working relationship with his clients and that makes my job easier as I come into the job with a sense of trust that has already been developed through Scott's professionalism. I would recommend Scott's services to both prospective clients and also to high quality contractors that do the job right, every time.
