Happy Clients!

We had landscaping done by Decoy landscaping including a retaining walls, flower beds, grass, and irrigation. Sue was creative and meticulous with the design. We were especially pleased with how much care Sue took to make sure everything was done well and done right. We were amazed at the size and quality of the trees. The materials and plantings used were all of top quality. Our yard looked excellent the day it was completed and has improved over time. Sue's design was thoughtful for the present and the future. We are thrilled with the work of Decoy landscaping and would highly recommend them.

Sean Pedersen

Sue Coy was asked to design and create a low maintenance landscape that would consist of shrubs and trees as well as special effects that would contribute to the existing building and lot topography, as well as meet the architectural controls in place at our development.
Sue, promptly did up a rendering and presented what has become a distinctive and unique creation that has given us many compliments and has had several resort visitors that are driving by, slow down and second look.
The Dry creek rock bed, mature spruce trees, raised shrub and tall grass gardens, slate pathways, and rustic wood rail fence, are just some of the special affects that Sue has installed.
Sue and her team were prompt to respond to our request, stayed with the job until complete and kept us informed daily as to the progress as we were still living in Calgary during this time.
We would definitely recommend Sue Coy and Decoy Landscaping to anyone who is considering a new or updating an existing landscape area.

Dale and Gaylene Heidt

We have a 1920s home on a double lot beside a busy road with a complex and thirsty planting of mature trees, hedges, heritage shrubs and perennials.
We contracted Sue Coy and her Decoy Landscaping team for a big project in our front yard. This work included installing a basement egress window, rock facade on the house, a pondless waterfall, dry creek bed, flagstone patio expansion, new plantings, expansion and shaping our artificial hill and, capping everything off, an underground irrigation system for the entire property.
Sue and her team were a joy to work with. This was truly a collaborative creative project. She embraced our initial concept and helped shape this vision beyond what we had originally conceived. Sue responded to our ideas and helped us capitalize on unforeseen opportunities. Then Decoy threw themselves into making this shared vision a reality. Decoy can make their excavators dance in small areas and place boulders with precision. Hand picked rocks kept moving until they settled in just the right place. Plants went where they would thrive - whether they loved heat and direct sun, were shade tolerant or needed their roots to be continually wet.
Wow, our property has been transformed! It has retained all the heritage plants and old home charm but is now an easy care, mini parkland with multiple “garden rooms”. We are spending hours transfixed by the waterfall that soothes our souls while hiding street noise. We love watching the birds, butterflies and dragonflies drawn to the water feature, our yard’s biodiversity has definitely been increased by the landscaping. The new plantings are like slow fireworks that provide changing colour and interest over the summer and fall. Our basement has so much natural light now it has become an attractive office space, with a fabulous view of the waterfall. We are entertaining more than ever on our expanded patio.
A pleasant surprise has been that, despite this year’s heat, the new irrigation system actually used less water than our previous system of timers, sprinklers and surface hoses. The irrigation system has ensured that the entire property has gotten the right quantity of water. We have the confidence that we can travel in the summer and not worry about the trees and shrubs being stressed by inadequate watering.
Thank you Sue. We’re ecstatic with the landscaping!
