I had been wanting to ‘update’ our yard for a few years and after calling around to quite a few landscapers, I connected with Andrew. I was so happy to find someone down to earth who works on ‘smaller’ projects – tough these days! We didn’t have a big budget but he was able to make everything work. Our yard is tiny but it an important living space so having someone who understood that was important to me. Andrew helped refine my ‘vision’ and offered great suggestions to make the yard look just awesome. We had the work down near the end of July 2015 so I am excited to see how things go this summer and to plant up our little veggie bed! I would highly recommend Natural Impressions Landscaping!
I first located Natural Impressions Landscaping through Better Business Bureau. From the onset of my first contact through the final project completion, the owner Andrew Burgess was a pleasure to work with. Andrew provided guidance and assistance to my needs, items which I was not familiar with and found to be great improvements from my initial plan, all this at expected budget. His crew did a fabulous job in creating my garden beds. They truly cared about doing a good job, and paying attention to details which brought out a beautiful looking garden bed accentuated with a stone border that I love.
I do highly recommend Andrew and his crew.
After we finished the renovations it was obvious to me that the existing landscaping had to go. Most of the plants had died or were about to die and the big ones were well, old.
I called Andrew after I found his flyer in my mailbox. Good timing!
After talking to him and seeing how professional he was I was convinced he would do a fine job. What I liked most about Andrew is that he listened and understood what it is that I wanted. It took a few visits and several back and forth discussions for us to finalize the plans. I was looking forward to seeing the real thing instead of photos and sketches.
The day his crew arrived was wet and cold. Nevertheless they got the job done. The digging, pulling out old plants and finally the planting of the new plants was professionally done by Andrew and his crew. I was very pleased with the new look and how great the house looked with a new addition and landscaping. I can’t wait for the plants to get bigger.
Thank you Andrew,

We first met with Andy Burgess in the fall of 2009 when we were interested in developing our backyard and re-sodding with fresh new lawn our 3000 sq ft property. We did our homework for a while and we were just about to give up on our project since almost everyone we called up in the city was busy or asking for outrageous fees while offering very little. After listening to our “wish list”, Andy came up with a wonderful design for our backyard, flower beds and the front lawn. The experience was so satisfying that now, neighbors stop by and ask for his number. At least two of our neighbors hired Andy instantly and were really happy with his work. Andy is a certified horticulture graduate from Algonquin College and his knowledge in the field is extensive. He worked really hard to meet deadlines in spite of bad weather and numerous, soil related challenges.
Andy was at all times extremely professional and very easy to interact with. The “whatever it takes” approach for client satisfaction demonstrated by Andy was truly appreciated.
Without any hesitation we would strongly recommend Natural Impressions to anyone considering their landscaping needs and interested in getting excellent quality work.
I moved into a new home last autumn and contracted with Andy Burgess to do a number of jobs around our property. The hard landscape portion of the contract was the removal of existing concrete slabs and preparation and installation of an interlock patio. My wife and I are really pleased with the result. Andy completed the work on the interlock patio professionally within the allotted time frame and within the price quoted. It certainly enhanced the look of our home.
In terms of soft landscape Andy designed and prepared large flower beds, including the removal of shrubs, trimming and planting along the front pathway of our home. Finally Andy planted 10 trees and 8 shrubs of different varieties and sizes over the property.
My wife who is a gardener was apprehensive about relying on some one else to design and plant her flower gardens but she was extremely happy with Andy’s design and work. The tree plantings are exactly as we hoped they would be as they are visible from the interior of our home at the most pleasing of intervals. This work was well executed and we are quite happy with the overall impact. I certainly recommend the design and workmanship carried out by Andy and his business Natural Impressions Landscaping.
Dear Andrew, It was a pleasure to have you and your crew working on my property @ 196 O’Connor Street, Ottawa Ontario.
The work on my driveway and entrance, lifting and relaying of the tiles on an area in excess of 1000 square feet was excellent, Your commitment and the commitment of your crew to superior workmanship, excellence and service were exemplary. I am delighted with the results.
I have had experience in the past, which did not meet my expectations, and therefore I wish to acknowledge your superior work. Should you require a reference I would be pleased to provide my name.
As a professional, I pride myself in being known for my attention to detail, creativity, excellence, and superior customer service. I therefore recognize and respect professionals who strive for those qualities and distinctions that make a difference. Thank-you and I wish you every success in your future.
We first met Andy after contacting several landscaping companies and all of them declining to work with us due to our very small front yard in the West Centretown. Andy was the only landscaper who never questioned the size of our yard and in fact was quite excited at the prospect of beautifying a rather small (and sad-looking!) urban lot. As complete beginners in all things landscaped, we were extremely pleased with his work. Andy was very patient in explaining the plan, process and the budget, as well as taking the time to answer many follow-up calls and questions we had (“is it normal for this plant to grow that way?”).
Andy’s enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism resulted in a great-looking front yard and a pair of very satisfied clients.
We would gladly refer his company to anyone, and we look forward to working with Andy again in the future!
I had Andrew work with me for the past three summers now. He had previously worked for a neighbor who recommended him to me. Due to a back injury, I had him do most of the digging, garden maintenance, lawn replacement. In addition, he replaced my damaged cement from step in good time and very well. He is an honest and hard working man and I have no hesitation in recommending him for garden and landscaping work.
We had just completed a large addition to our Highland Park home in the fall of 2010 when we hired Andy to landscape our back yard. The entire space was covered with mud, debris from the construction, weeds, and remnants from the previous landscaping. We had a vague idea of what we wanted but we needed someone who had ideas and wasn’t afraid of the huge clean-up that would have to occur before any landscaping could take place.
What impressed us from the very start was Andy’s attitude about his work – you could tell he loves what he does. He was a professional from start to finish. He considered the job carefully and came up with a great plan for the space that addressed everything we wanted. He gave us a detailed estimate that was reasonable and accurate. At every step along the way he consulted with us regarding next steps, discussing changes that could improve the design. He was so easy to work with and is a very considerate, conscientious person. Having just been through an extensive renovation, we were particularly sensitive to the quality of people that spent time working around our home and family – Andy was a pleasure to have around.
The best part was that we got a fantastic back yard that we enjoyed as much as possible last year and that we’re excited to see come to life again this year. Andy cleaned up the mess in the back yard, constructed window wells, graded the property, planted grass and flower beds and set up an area for our daughter’s play structure. We would highly recommend Andy’s company, Natural Impressions Landscaping.
We’re just thrilled with the work you did in our rear yard, Andy.
On time, better than planned and still within budget! We’re so very glad to have come across Natural Impressions Landscaping and we’ll tell all our friends of your professionalism, skill and incredible work ethic!
Please don’t hesitate to have any prospective clients call us if they have any questions about your business.
Andy is trustworthy and dependable. He turned our back yard (as described by an 80 year old neighbor as the “Viet Cong Jungle”) into a modern day oasis. Andy is professional, hardworking and shows pride in his work. Believe it or not he came in on budget.
We have many people dropping in to comment on how lovely our landscaping is … from the brick inlay … to the large rocks, to the choice of the plants and trees … to sodding. All done with a courteous and polite crew.
We are so pleased with his company’s quality of work we have recommended him to our friends. We continue to have Andy and his crew maintain our property and would recommend him to anyone.
Just had to send you this email to let you know how much we appreciated the work you, and your team did
in our yard. It was a relief to have the work completed so beautifully, quickly, and well. I have 3 neighbours who
went with a different company, who are all very upset they did not pick yours. On saying that other neighbours
have been touring my yard and two have asked for your card already!!! This really emphasizes a job very well done!
It was also nice to have people working on our job that seemed to enjoy their work, versus the disgruntled
and very crude ones that were working on other neighbours yards. Keep up the fantastic work and service Andy,
I will highly recommend you to anyone.
