What Our Customers Say

Thank you so much for your wonderful work designing and installing new landscaping and lighting at our hillside location in Pasadena. 

You are a most impressive team, with your combined expertise and experience in landscape design and construction.  You were both so attentive to our preferences while also letting us have the benefit of your ideas.  You were patient with me as I had so many questions and ideas along the way, and you were good teachers.  I enjoyed learning so much from you.  The look and feel you created in both the front and the back is terrific, blending with what we had but enhancing and making it all twice as beautiful. 

You made many trips to see us, to supervise your crew closely, and even to adjust the lighting for us in the dark.  I feel comfortable about the investment because you know plants so thoroughly and you took such care to get the irrigation right.  You both were so professional at every step of the way and a pleasure to work with.  I feel we certainly have gotten good value for the cost.

Just a note to say THANK YOU! for the great job you and your crew did for us.  We love the landscaping—the plants are just the right combination of colors heights, and textures, placed with a design that is both visually interesting and imaginative.  You created a wonderful garden for us that blends perfectly with our mountain vista.  We also are enjoying the new lighting and easy maintenance with the new sprinkler system.
In short, we very much appreciated the professionalism and high quality that was evident in everything Canterbury did.  You even finished ahead of time, and under budget!  That’s not only great, it is amazing.

My family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did on designing and landscaping of our front yard.  You managed to approach this task with such creativity, dedication and professionalism that totally exceeded our expectations.
In particular, I appreciate the way you made us all comfortable throughout the process.  You were extremely generous with you time, met us on a number of occasions, listened to and addressed all our ideas, likes and dislikes, without compromising the integrity of your work.  The hours you spent on making sure everything would fit together (lights, plants, irrigation) reflects on you perfectionism and love for your work.
In the final stage of the project I had to leave for the hospital to give birth to my second son.  Before I left, you told me “Do not worry about the garden, trust me”.  So I did.  When I returned home I was in awe.  It felt like coming to a paradise.  I could not have wished for a nicer “welcome home present”.  You have “given me” the most beautiful flowers I ever had.

I wanted to write this note to again call to your attention the outstanding work that was done by Ken and his crew.  Everything was done professionally and efficiently from the planning stage through the completion of our project.  We had some issues that came up after the job was completed, and Ken and his crew resolved all of those issues for us.  Our whole experience was wonderful.
We are extremely pleased with the work that was done and have referred a number of our friends and acquaintances to Ken for landscaping services.

We wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience we had with Ken.  He was incredibly generous with his time, meeting with us on numerous occasions as the work on the water features and paving progressed so that he could get a sense of what we wanted and so that we would feel comfortable with his suggestions.  Once we were ready to go forward with the landscaping Ken’s wonderful and creative ideas merged perfectly with our desires (as well as with our budget).

We have been looking for the right landscaping company for five years and have interviewed countless representatives from other companies.  Yet none have exhibited the vast knowledge and experience of Ken.  He really listened to what we wanted and then designed a back yard, which exceeded our expectations.  Also, Ken and his crew were the consummate professionals.  They arrived on time every day and worked diligently, paying attention to even the smallest details.  Whenever we watched them at work, we felt that they treated our yard as if it were their own.

- Ron and Diane W.
Our yard is so beautiful and lush, that we now spend a lot more time sitting on our patio, enjoying the view.  This may sound like a commercial, but we can honestly say that we have the backyard of our dreams.
Thank you for providing us with outstanding and professional service.
I just wanted to let you know that our front yard has been chosen for the Golden Arrow Award for South Pasadena!  As you may be aware each year only 10 yards are selected in the entire city.
My thanks to you for your outstanding work and follow up.  The Award plaque will be displayed for the moth of May and will be written up in the South Pasadena Review.  Please feel free to take pictures for your book with the award displayed.
Thanks again from the entire family!

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the recent landscaping job done at our home.
Ken Bilheimer did a superb job of designing a landscape plan that met with all our desires and thoughts.  Not only did Ken design a beautiful plan, he carefully explained to us how the trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials were to be maintained in order to keep the overall plan as crisp looking as it was at inception.  Our desired color scheme was also met.

Gerry and Linda S.
I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the landscape project that Ken Bilheimer and his team recently completed at our home in South Pasadena.  Everything turned out beautifully and we love our "new yard”.  Over the five years we have lived in our home, we have had various people do work on our landscape and home and Ken’s team is by far the most professional and best we have ever employed.  They consistently arrived on time each day and completed the project exactly as promised.  It was a pleasure to work with such a dedicated group of people.
