So what are they saying?

Linda WaldermanClient

Working with Geta was wonderful! She was creative, responsive and very connected with great tradespeople - from stone masons, to irrigation specialists, to incredible landscapers. They all seemed to respect her greatly, and drop everything when she called!
She showed her vision for our front garden on her iPad, and tweaked it to perfection as time went by.
When we ran into a few “blips”, she was solution oriented and calm (that helps!).
The project was brought in on time and on budget - we are so grateful!
She’s extremely knowledgeable about all trees and plants, and was able to direct this neophyte accordingly.
I would recommend Geta for all your garden needs without reservation!

After moving into our home, we couldn’t wait to settle in and enjoy our new surroundings; however, we had a front and backyard that needed a little TLC. While we shopped around for potential landscapers, I remembered seeing a friend’s beautifully landscaped backyard and that’s how I came to meet Geta - through a referral from a friend. Right from the beginning, we were impressed with Geta’s professionalism and easy-going personality. She was quick to provide us with options to fit our budget and interests. And after agreeing on our final landscape design, Geta’s team quickly turned our property from boring to beautiful. Throughout the entire process, not only was Geta quick to respond to our list of questions but she was also very patient and trustworthy. We were very happy with our landscaping project and we can’t wait to enjoy many sunny afternoons and warm evenings surrounded by the beautiful foliage. Thanks Geta for making our outdoor living so much more enjoyable!

“We came to Geta with a vague idea that we wanted to redo our backyard so that it could better meet the needs of our family. Geta did a wonderful job in helping to build on our ideas, create a vision, and then execute to transform the vision into reality. We have been extremely happy – particularly since the finished project was better than anything we had envisioned. Throughout the process Geta was mindful of both the “big picture” as well as the smaller details. In short, we would definitely recommend working with Geta.

Geta transformed my garden from a concrete wasteland with an old swimming pool to a green oasis with a flagstone patio, grass and a colourful mass of perennials. Now it really is a garden.

We wholeheartedly recommend the creative talents of Geta Winberg to anyone thinking of making their garden into an oasis in the city. Geta listened carefully to our vision of what we wanted to create and suggested some fantastic ideas and was able to transform our very unimpressive backyard space into the most lovely and restful refuge. Geta has great relationships with some wonderful trades people who were a pleasure to work with. Working with Geta was a very positive experience and now we have a garden that we love!

I have known Geta for seven years. She helped with small gardening projects at my last house. She was always willing to give me advice concering the gardens, whether it be planting or maintenance. When I moved into my dream house last summer, I knew I had to call Geta when it came to planning the new and very large gardens. She planned, purchased and planted (with the help of her great team) a new garden in the front yard. I had several meetings and Geta listened and paid great attention to what I was looking for-something that looked great and suited the house, but was easy to maintain with our busy schedule. The previous garden was overgrown and full of small and insignificant plants. It now looks like it has been there for years. The new plants have grown incredibly over the winter. It looks very cohesive and suits the look of the exterior of the home. When I decided that I wanted to landscape the back garden this summer, I knew who to call-Geta. The backyard was also overgrown and full of too many small plants. Once again, Geta listened to my needs and wants. She has completely transformed the back garden. I absolutely love it. beautiful and elegant, it totally suits my home and lifestlye.
A huge thanks to Geta for all of her hard work!

We had a large backyard project go off the rails last summer and Geta came in and literally saved the day. Not only did she advise us on our backyard garden, but she introduced us to, and coordinated the work of outstanding tradesmen including a stone mason, carpenter, gardener and lighting professional. Geta designed a beautiful garden for us. The finished project is more than we hoped for and when the budget permits, we will have her come back to work on the front yard. Her attention to detail was very much appreciated.

Geta and her creative team re-designed a corner of my garden with fences and new trees to screen it from the monstrous house next door. The fence is highly original, giving the garden a new signature look. Then we re-laid the flags. Every phase went smoothly and was completed with loving care and on budget. I highly recommend Gardens Everyone Talks About for anyone planning small or more ambitious changes to their gardens.

From beginning to end we were informed and advised thoroughly. The extensive knowledge and expertise behind the design gave us the confidence to put our complete trust in Geta to create our garden. Geta's passion for gardening is clearly evident in all her projects and she is incredibly personable and always available for any questions or concerns.

We have known Geta for a long time and have always admired her work, so when we decided to completely transform our back yard from grass with some flowers into an outdoor living area, it was an easy decision. Geta worked with us taking on the roles of designer, general contractor and gardener. When it came time to execution, she made sure that the excavation, construction, stone work, lighting and planting were done on time and as we wanted it. Her attention to detail and vision for what would work best for our now beautiful showcase backyard was truly remarkable. We are very happy and highly recommend Gardens Everyone Talks About.

I met Geta over my backyard fence while she was completing a landscape project for my neighbour. I found her to be professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I hired her initially for a small job which turned out so well that the following year I had her design, build and plant two berms incorporating fourteen tons of stone blocks on my corner property. They are simply stunning and I receive a steady stream of compliments about what have become major features of my garden.
Geta listens carefully to the needs and preferences of her clients (as a longtime gardener and plant aficionado I readily admit that I'm not the easiest client when it comes to the plant material), uses very high caliber trades for stonework, carpentry, lighting et cetera on her projects and supervises every step with great attention to detail.
I recommend Geta's work without hesitation and also feel sure that we will collaborate on future projects in my garden.

We love our garden that was so beautifully designed and planted by Geta. It is unique, peaceful, dynamic, lush and inviting!! When planning for the design Geta really listened, and took into account our lifestyle and preferences. Hence, the entire backyard suits our needs, and we truly live out there from morning to evening, from spring to fall. The quality of the planted material is fantastic, and we marvel, year after year, at the very lush growth. The job was done quickly, efficiently, and on budget. It was a pleasure to work with Geta and her crew, and to continue to reap such enjoyment from our "outside room".

When Geta suggested that we transition our postage stamp backyard, which had all of the hallmarks of a dull drab looking patch of weeds into a garden, we accepted all of her suggestions and ideas.
Within two months the backyard was transformed into a profusion of colour including several flowering trees, shrubs, long grasses and a variety of flowers such that each week, from spring crocuses and early daffodils and tulips to fall daisies and mums, new plants and colours emerge weekly. With well positioned night lighting and a quiet water sprinkler system, the view from our kitchen is simply outstanding – all completed on time, on budget, with no disruption to our daily lives.

Geta transformed our garden from a builder's square of boring green to an elegant and peaceful oasis. Our family thoroughly enjoys the special place she has created for us. We use it for daily living, entertaining, and quiet contemplation. Geta and her crew were also a pleasure to deal with.
