Absolutely amazing! In our 46 years of marriage and going through many, many building and renovation projects, we have NEVER, ever dealt with such an organized and professional team as we experienced with Rockscape. Sincere thanks and congratulations on a GREAT job.

Rockscape was the right choice and they certainly didn’t disappoint. Refreshing to experience on-time and on-budget, the staff were amazing and what was on the plan was delivered and more. One of the best end-to-end client experiences I have ever had.

We have worked with Rockscape for the past 10 years. Their knowledge of the local terrain, plant material and hard landscape materials puts them at the forefront in the industry. It is not just the quality of their work but the quality of the people of Rockscape which makes them a truly one of a kind company.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service Rockscape provided. Rockscape completed this huge project to the highest standards. Over the past year our island has been transformed from ordinary into an absolute picture perfect sanctuary.
There is such a feeling of peace and serenity amongst the pines and wild Muskoka flowers. What an amazing job your crew did. Always on time, always with a smile, always courteous and always listening to the client’s wishes. Cassie Island will definitely be a landmark due to the beautiful flowers, trees and stunning stone work. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Rockscape and highly recommending your services to anyone.
Thank you so much, we are so looking forward to another summer at our cottage thanks to Rockscape!!

The exceptional creativity that Rockscape’s team puts into the gardens and plantings on our large property becomes more and more evident as each summer unfolds and the gardens mature further. Our flower boxes are definitely a seasonal highlight. The personal touch that each member of their maintenance crew provides ensures that our entire property continues to look better and better year after year.

Rockscape understood from the start what landscape design was required to create maximum harmony with our new cottage. They worked tirelessly in parallel with the new building construction rather than sequentially which was quite a feat in itself. The resulting look is very beautiful and functional, highly designed and yet appearing indigenous to the area at the same time.

Over the last four years I have had the pleasure of working with Craig and his team at Rockscape on projects on the outer islands and shores of Georgian Bay and the major Muskoka Lakes.
Working with Craig and his team, our projects have benefited from their solid project management and decision-making skills. Another key to their ongoing success is their experience, passion and expertise in working with the local terrain, rock and native landscape. They work effectively, often with many other building contractors onsite, and strive to get the job completed efficiently, with little wasted effort and resources. They not only meet, but routinely exceed the clients’ expectations.
The Rockscape team is collaborative. They bring added value to a project due to their ability to understand the intent of the design concept. Due to time and distance, the clients and/or the landscape architect cannot always be present. It is comforting to know, that one can rely on Craig and his people to make immediate and critical decisions that will affect the project outcome in a positive way. In Muskoka, or on an outer island in Georgian Bay, this is vital to the success of any landscape project.

Tamarack has been doing business with Rockscape since 2002. At that point in our construction cycle, we would go through a rigorous bidding process with 2 to 3 landscape companies and award the work to either the low bidder or the most cost and time effective sub trade. We learned that as the landscapes were installed, the design drawings were quite often set aside so that the landscape contractor could more accurately install a fantastic landscape that suited the individual characteristics of each lakefront property. Rockscape, with it’s own design staff and estimating ability was able to ‘tweak’ the landscape design, present the cost implications to the customer in an effective way and execute the work without extensive Project Management from Tamarack’s staff. Over the years and the dozens of landscapes we have now performed together, it has resulted in a mutual trust between the two companies to the point that Rockscape is now our preferred bid and we base our landscape contracts on installed unit rates (flagstone, landscape boulder, plantings, etc.) that have the flexibility for Rockscape to design and create the more fantastic landscapes we have ever jointly been involved with. The results speak for themselves….

In short, a job extremely well done and professional. Whenever we reached a point of decision – and there were a few – you were ready with explanations of alternatives without pressuring us. From the initial discussions through to the final clean up, your people have been just great. We will happily recommend Rockscape.

Last Fall Craig Rose and his team from Rockscape completed quite a large landscaping project at our Island out from Parry Sound in Georgian Bay.
Sometimes things move slowly at ‘The Bay’ but not with Rockscape. Craig Rose and his highly professional team completed the project on time and on budget and the quality of work and materials was absolutely excellent. Importantly, the site was always maintained in a neat and orderly state and the workers were a pleasure to have on the island.
My wife Shari and I have no hesitation in providing Rockscape with a flat out positive recommendation. We would use Rockscape again in a heartbeat.
Yours very truly,

Craig Rose and Rockscape have been instrumental in the design, implementation and ongoing maintenance of our cottage property. They respect and meet the challenges of Muskoka’s beautiful landscapes. Over a seven year association, it has been our pleasure to work with all the staff and I will always be grateful for the work done to restore our shoreline.
