When my husband and I moved into our new home, we wanted to have our back yard be our very own private Oasis. We had been living in a condo for the last 19 years, and we so much missed a back yard. We were given the name, Canopy Farm Landscaping from a neighbour. We met with Marie Paxton, the owner of the company. Marie listened to our wishes, and she put us in touch with a specialist in stone work.
Between the two of them, they created a wonderful place of serenity, and peace right in our own backyard. We could not be more pleased with what they created. The pictures speak for themselves.

We love the landscaping Marie has done in our back garden, elegant and practical. Marie also helped us choose things at the nursery and stone supplier. All this on time and on budget and a great clean-up.
Working with Marie has been such a pleasure. Her service is timely and thorough but more important she is professional, courteous and enjoyable to work with. Her attention to detail contributes to a job well done. Our yard has never looked better.

We are completely satisfied with our landscape…another excellent job”… I am certain Marie has heard this over and over again. It has been four years since we met Marie who is a dedicated professional who enjoys her work right down to the last detail. I enjoyed working with her and could not have asked for anyone that would have been more accommodating. Marie was not only a great pleasure to work with from start to finish, she is knowledgeable in her field and she took the time to listen to our likes and dislikes and then provided us with the most wonderful landscape over which we have had many favourable comments. “Another great job Marie”

Marie has been instrumental in transforming my property. My side yard was a tangled mess of weeds and overgrown shrubs and Marie has created a tranquil shade garden of hydrangeas, ferns, hostas as well as a raised vegetable garden. A formerly inhospitable space has become welcoming, useful and beautiful. When a garden wall at the front of the house had to be removed because it was falling down, she created a lovely front space with Japanese maples, forest grasses, hostas and a kousa dogwood. Between gardens that make up the front yard, Marie designed walkways with large flagstones. These walkways are beautiful and functional, creating a lovely variance between soft and hard landscaping.
Marie is creative and hard-working. She is demanding of herself and the people who work for her. I am delighted with the garden spaces she has developed for me. My gardens will be featured on the 2016 Stratford Garden Tour and that is a great compliment to Marie’s work.
Marie has taken excellent care of our landscaping needs for several years, we would highly recommend her, we look forward to seeing her every spring.
